Selency is a French startup aiming to make it easier for consumers to decorate their homes with luxurious but affordable furniture. Anyone interested in antique and vintage furniture knows that buying unused pieces or reproductions is prohibitively expensive, but finding used furniture for sale can be tricky. Selency streamlines the process, allowing consumers to sell their vintage pieces through an easy e-commerce interface.

While sites like Craigslist allow consumers to buy and sell goods directly with one another, they lack essentials for people serious about purchasing antique furniture. Through Selency, sellers are required to upload high quality photos and post specs about the item's dimensions. Further, Selency allows buyers to either pick up the pieces they purchase themselves (for free) or to pay to have their pieces delivered.
