Sotheby’s is pleased to announce the launch of Sotheby’s Home, an online consignment marketplace specializing in vintage and antique furniture, decorative objects and accessories. Sotheby’s Home connects collectors and design lovers with an approachable new platform to buy furniture, art and home décor from showrooms, dealers, interior designers and private individuals. For consignors, Sotheby’s Home offers a solution encompassing all steps of the selling process, from curation and photography to moving and delivery.
“The launch of Sotheby’s Home provides a new platform to buy designer furniture, antiques, accessories and art with ease, furthering our commitment to offer expanded channels to serve both our customers and consignors.”
— JOHN AUERBACH, GENERAL MANAGER OF SOTHEBY'S ART & OBJECTS DIVISION IN NEW YORK
Sotheby’s Home expands the brand’s growing e-commerce portfolio, which includes a robust program of live and online-only auctions as well as the retail business, Sotheby’s Wine, providing greater access to premium offerings across categories for customers. The launch of Sotheby’s Home is supported by the acquisition of Viyet in February 2018. Since being acquired, web traffic to Viyet.com has increased over 200%, doubling monthly revenue. The site has expanded its inventory, building new relationships with over 60 galleries, showrooms and brands, with recent partners including Schumacher, Aerin, Jason Jacques Gallery, and Casati Gallery.
