As an interior design consultancy with a range of projects from executive offices to private homes all over the world, we receive requests for bespoke items and sort after pieces that will create investment for our clients and add value to a space. One of the most useful tools we’ve come across is recent years is 1stdibs.com – Connecting the world’s best dealers, finest shops and most important galleries with individuals and professionals throughout the world the site offers everything from furniture, fine art, fashion and jewellery to those in search of a single particular item or to the most sophisticated of collectors.

“Starting with the few dealers that were hand-selected by our founder Michael Bruno at Paris’s legendary antiques market, Marché Aux Puces, in 2001, we’ve become the global destination for those who must have ‘first dibs’ on treasures — from around the world — that would otherwise be inaccessible.”

In 2001, young, passionate, luxury real estate dealer Michael Bruno visited the historic Paris Marché aux Puces and found items of such beauty and authenticity, he was moved to purchase several for his own collection. But, like stumbling upon a great new restaurant or overhearing a juicy secret, Bruno couldn’t keep this discovery to himself. He created the website 1stdibs.com as a vehicle for sharing his find with the world. In just over a decade, 1stdibs has grown quickly to become the premier online luxury marketplace. It’s a testament to the quality of items and services made available and the enduring reputation of the dealers featured on our site.
