Do you want to make room for something new, clear out expensive storage units or just enjoy a cash return on furnishings that are no longer of use to you? Consign Design has a seamless buying and selling process clearly articulated for any serious seller and/or purchaser. Our iconic pieces are perfect for anyone with extraordinary style but with a limited budget. Consign Design only accepts high-quality, lovingly maintained pieces. Most importantly, our clients are looking for your furniture.
What makes us unique is that we offer an alternative to buying copies and reproductions given our focus on authored design. Policies and pricing are clearly articulated and easily accessible for interested buyers and sellers.
How It Works
Step 1: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a picture and brief description of what you would like to sell. Please be sure to include item dimensions. If the information is available, please include brand, year purchased, and a brief condition report. You will be notified within 48 hours as to whether Consign Design is a good fit.
Step 2: If it is a good fit, and you are in the Edmonton area, one of our curators will come to you to see the item in person in order to evaluate the condition of the piece(s) and take a few preliminary photographs. If you are not local to Edmonton, we will try our best to make other arrangements. We may require that the item be cleaned or touched up prior to placing your item on ours sales floor. If this is the case, we will gladly recommend quality tradesmen to get the job done at your expense.
Step 3: We determine a selling price. Selling prices are based on an item’s current value, the condition of your item and current market appeal.
Step 4: Consign Design will send a contract based on an agreed selling price.
