Mid-Century Modern Marketplace Meet-Up


Described as a mix between a gallery and an auction house, Lush Pad is a site that’s meant to attract lovers of mid-century modern furnishings. Its set up is more refined than eBay, but reminiscent of craigslist. And the listing fees aren’t bad: free for items priced under $250 and $8-$12 thereafter. However, unlike either of the aforementioned sites, Lush Pad aims to lure customers back with content. The site will profile architects, designers, architects, and manufacturers as well as pertinent books. As Springwise says, the web site’s relevance and ability to rise to the top will be its ability to wean out the good from the bad, and have great content and photographs. We’re all set to read right now about Herman Miller, Robin Wade Furniture, Knoll, and a whole lot more. Off to waste time or educate ourselves. You decide.
