Second Hand Designer Furniture for Sale by Global Inspirations Design

Repurposing or selling designer furniture

Second hand designer furniture is a great way to create stylish interiors without breaking the bank. Designer furniture, in particular design classics, tend to be timeless in terms of their design and they live longer thanks to their quality. So by selling or buying second hand designer furniture you’re making a positive impact on the environment. It really is an all around win.

As an interior designer I feel a responsibility to source ethically and sustainably. For this reason, I always try to integrate my client’s pre-loved furniture and decor into the new design. Sometimes all it needs is some fresh paint or a new fabric cover. Clients are often surprised what an impact re-upholstering an old and worn out piece of furniture can have.

However, there are times when you just need a fresh start. Whatever the reason may be, divorce, a (international) move, empty nest syndrome or maybe you’ve simply grown tired of your home environment after a few years. And that’s ok.

On other occasions the existing furniture, even the most stylish designer furniture, simply does not fit the new concept or lifestyle.

Selling second hand designer furniture

While some old furniture may be ready to be disposed of, some can find a new home through a charity (e.g. Brockenstube in Switzerland), yet some second hand furniture, especially designer and vintage furniture, can be sold via one of the many second hand designer furniture platforms or Social Media.

Donating or selling your pre-loved furniture is a great way to reduce waste. At the same time it may bring joy to someone else who’s been looking for just that piece to complete their home.

Over the years Global Inspirations Design has assisted clients re-purpose their beloved pieces of furniture and decor and also get rid off and sell their furniture through charity, Social Media and second hand designer furniture platforms and shops.

Global Inspirations Design’s second hand designer furniture for sale

Having moved 25 times and counting (often internationally), I’ve also sold (and sometimes bought) countless pieces of second hand (designer) furniture,  lighting and home decor. In addition, as an interior designer I do love to switch things up in my own home occasionally. I guess it comes with the territory when working in the world of interior design. However, I’ve always been very conscious about finding a new loving home for my furniture, light fixtures and decor and giving them a second life.

With this in mind, I’ve decided to create this blog post about second hand designer furniture. I’ll continuously update it with pre-loved designer furniture for sale, so make sure to check back every now and then. You might just find what you’ve been looking for at a much lower price 😉

Below you’ll find a list and description of our second hand designer furniture currently for sale. Should you be interested in any of the pieces, please do get in touch.
