Couchelo - a new app connecting buyers and sellers of vintage furniture and pre-loved wares

If you love vintage furniture, pre-loved wares and handcrafted design items, then you must take a look at a new App called Couchelo. With a preliminary beta app launching on the iOS store a few weeks ago, this will be one to watch.

Basically Couchelo is a curated marketplace for unique furniture and homewares. Rather than going from one vintage store to the next, across multiple suburbs, users can see which stores on the app have the retro bar stools, industrial lamps or reupholstered vintage chairs perfect for their home.

The idea for Couchelo came from pure necessity. Its young founders, when trying to decorate their own homes, realised that Sydney has a very scattered group of boutique bricks-and-mortar sellers, collectors listing on eBay and standalone craftsmen with a limited online presence. Not only was there no go-to place for everyone to connect, there was also no easy way for buyers or enthusiasts to find them.

Couchelo connects boutique businesses, collectors and design lovers on an easy to use platform where they can browse, buy and sell. The team asked me to check out their current sellers and curate a list of my favourite items. Here are just a few…. 

I love that these guys have harnessed the power of technology to help a niche market become more accessible to potential customers.
