Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SOUTH WEST LONDON, England - Aug 06, 2016 - Since launching Layer in October 2015, CEO and Founder Hannah Russell has propelled Layer to lead the way in the curated online secondhand and vintage furniture industry.
By partnering with only the very best antique and vintage furniture traders, Layer is making preloved relevant to today in a modern and fresh way, showcasing a diverse range of design styles – from Vintage French and Swedish antiques to mid-century modern, industrial chic to Art Deco furniture.
Layer allows both professional sellers and individuals to list an item of quality secondhand design furniture for sale on their site. After approval by their team of curators, the item is listed on the Layer marketplace and it reaches an engaged audience of interiors-lovers.
Since its inception, hundreds of sellers are choosing to use the platform as an alternative to eBay, with a much more select and curated method of choosing pieces and with over 200 new vintage pieces uploaded every week. There are now thousands of pieces of furniture available for sale on Layer.
Hannah Russell says of the company’s rapid growth, “We’ve been overwhelmed by the demand for private individuals to list their quality pieces on our platform. It reaffirms to us that the way to grow our business is to allow anyone (not just professional traders) to sell quality secondhand design furniture pieces through Layer.”
This year, Layer has also enjoyed extensive Press coverage in the Sunday Times, the Telegraph, Huffington Post, Metro, Homes & Antiques, Houzz and others. As well as a furniture retail site, Layer has established itself as a thriving content hub, having collaborated with designers and interior bloggers for interviews and home tours on their popular lifestyle blog. Content collaborations have included the likes of designer Jo Berryman, blogger Luke Arthur Wells and fashion designer Pearl Lowe.
So what’s next for the online vintage furniture emporium? Hannah Russell said, “The bigger picture is that we will continue to build Layer into the very best and most exciting destination online for lovers of home design. We believe that Layer’s marriage of quality content with commerce means that individuals with a passion for timeworn and design furniture can be completely satisfied in one destination!” Source :
