Viyet is the design aficionado's destination to buy and sell timeless furniture and accessories. We make it easy for owners of high-end furniture to sell their pieces when it comes time to move or redecorate. For shoppers, we offer access to designer brand names at a fraction of retail prices. Since launching in April 2013, we have featured pieces from distinguished lines such as B&B Italia, Cassina, Christian Liaigre, Holly Hunt, Ligne Roset, and Mies van der Rohe, among many others.
We are a team devoted to making Viyet the online destination for exceptional pre-owned designer furniture. Design leadership, extraordinary customer service, and technological innovation define how Viyet is transforming the way people buy and sell designer furniture.
