After inheriting several amazing designer furniture pieces that unfortunately would not fit into her Manhattan apartment, Louise Youngson-Klasfeld realized there was a significant hole in the market for the purchasing and sale of designer pre-owned furniture. As a style-savvy woman who consigns her clothes on a seasonal basis, she was shocked to learn there were extremely few options for selling furniture. When mutual friends realized that Louise Youngson-Klasfeld and Rachel Rodin were pondering the same business model, they were introduced, joined forces, and in April 2013 launched Viyet.com, the insider’s marketplace for designer furniture. The rest is history. Viyet is an incredible resource for the design community, and I’m so excited to feature Louise on today’s Style Profile, an exclusive interview series with top designers, creatives, and tastemakers.
