A quick glance at how Decosouq works

Decosouq curates items so that the buyers can simply browse the website, add the item of their choice to the cart and check out with secure online payment through Paypal and all major credit cards. In case of unmentioned defect or additional damage, they also allow return within 48 hours.

From exploring pre-loved furniture from most-loved brands like Marina Homes, Crate & Barrel, Ebarza, Danube Home, JYSK, Pottery Barn to turning gently used furniture into cash, selling through Decosouq is simple - all customers have to do is upload a picture of their item on the website, along with a description and a desired price to list it. After the listing is created, Decosouq reviews and publishes the listing, open for people to purchase the furniture. Once the item has been bought, Decosouq offers door to door service by providing collection and delivery. Customers then get the payment within a matter of days of the sale.

“Having launched our services only a few months back, we have approved thousands of listings, welcoming first key accounts and growing 40-50% in GMV sales month over month.

We at Decosouq are using technology and third-party services to introduce new and smart ways of selling & buying pre-loved furniture. Our aim is to change the circular economy landscape with one piece of furniture at a time. We also want to help all our sellers and buyers build 100% trust by having a hassle-free experience with Decosouq" said, Emir Tumen, Founder of Decosouq.
