Chairish - Home Decor and Vintage Furniture to Buy and Sell - App Review

Chairish - Home Decor and Vintage Furniture to Buy and Sell for Apple iOS is a simple app offering an array of items for sale. Find that next long lost treasure and purchase it directly within the app with ApplePay, or sell off your own collection of quality pieces. This one is a good resource for designers, bargain hunters and home decorating enthusiasts.

Official App Store Links:  Apple iOS  |  Android

Chairish - Home Decor and Vintage Furniture to Buy and Sell presents in portrait mode to deliver a very old school interface, featuring images and black text on a stark white backdrop, much like an art gallery setting. The look isn’t very cutting edge, however, the concept is interesting. Think eBay meets Etsy, only centered on home d├ęcor and furnishings. The app features a horizontally scrolling menu along the top of the screen, which features tabs like, styles, makers, stories, categories and new. The stories tab is where you’ll find gift ideas for couples, gifts for him, for her, curator’s picks, and an array of themed choices. The makers category features items organized by designer, like Adrian Pearsall, Bertoia, Drexel and Knoll, just to name a few. And the categories tab, naturally, lists everything according to type, like tables, chairs, storage, etc. And the styles tab features vintage, contemporary, mid-century, industrial and modern categories, along with others.

The app itself functions smoothly throughout, but I did encounter occasional buffering issues as new pages loaded. The pictures are of professional, gallery quality, with everything presented on pure white, with no shadows or erroneous stuff to muddle things. Item descriptions are exhaustive, including, item condition, dimensions, providence, location, price and buying options. Items include professional listings alongside individuals selling items direct. You can create an account and start listing your own items with ease.

Chairish - Home Decor and Vintage Furniture to Buy and Sell is for a niche market and the items offer span every possible category, theme and style. These are quality items, not garage sale junk. This is a cool resource to have on hand for professionals and casual enthusiasts alike.
