SAN FRANCISCO - Jan. 12, 2016 - PRLog -- Trove Market helps people nationwide buy and sell quality secondhand furnishings and decor locally via their mobile apps and website. The company is expanding its programs to incorporate more activities with the design trade, which will help sellers maximize their value when dealing on Trove.

Trove prides itself on being a store of delightful things. There’s something for everyone, as renowned architect Winka Dubbeldam, founder/principal of the New York firm Archi-Tectonics and Chair & Professor of Graduate Architecture at PennDesign, found out last fall when she was replacing some of her furniture.

Trove Market co-founder Mason Richman describes how Winka came to know about Trove. "After dinner one night in The Hamptons, Winka was shown our mobile app, and she fell in love with the idea that she could find used furniture selling nearby. Winka’s immediate thoughts were, ‘I'm going to get addicted to this. Launch in New York!’ Slight wrinkle, since we had only launched in California and Texas at that time! Regardless, we wanted to assist, and got straight to work helping Winka score an amazing vintage dining set."

Winka looked through Trove and found two listings that fit what she was craving: a mid century modern, draw-leaf dining table, and four windsor chairs from Delightful Designs Decor – which they re-stained in Benjamin Moore Iron mountain (matte grey) to match Winka's home.

When asked about her experience, Winka replied, "I love Trove Market and the fact that you can use it to buy and sell unique furnishings right within your own community. It's a great resource for interior designers, because it gives them a way to serve their clients faster with great furnishings sourced locally! This moves us toward more sustainable practices, and really opens our eyes to the beautiful things selling in our communities.”

Trove has recently helped several interior designers showcase their talents. Concurrently, those designers have helped get Trove inventory in front of more consumers. Trove plans to continue this effort, and has opened the opportunity to professionals in the design trade.
