What do you do with beautiful designer furniture, accessories, and artwork when it’s time to move on? That’s precisely the problem we set out to solve when we first launched Sotheby’s Home (formerly Viyet) in 2013. What started as a curated consignment marketplace quickly became the preferred platform for design aficionados to buy and sell the best in pre-owned décor, antiques, and so much more. Our evolution from start-up to established company caught the attention of Sotheby’s, which acquired Viyet in February 2018.
In October 2018, Viyet became Sotheby’s Home, building upon the success of the Viyet marketplace and reflecting our continued focus on new categories, including prints, photography and contemporary art.
Though our name has changed, our commitment to design leadership, extraordinary customer service, and technological innovation remains the same. As Sotheby’s Home, we continue to be the premier online consignment platform for buying and selling exceptional pre-owned furniture, antiques, vintage pieces, art, lighting, collections, and everything else found in stylish homes across the country.
