Furniture Designers to Know

Ok, I have to admit it. I love unique furniture. Since starting at EstateSales.NET ten years ago, I have seen my fair share of funky furniture for sale at estate sales. My favorites, the pieces that make me want to buy a bigger house and drive across the country to wait in line, usually have some historical significance in the design world. I have put together this reference list of furniture designers to use while out on the hunt estate sale shopping. Many of their pieces come up for sale if you search EstateSales.NET. Some more than others. You can add these names to your treasure tracker to get notified when pieces become available. In addition to this resource, I highly recommend visiting Knoll’s archive, as you can find an incredible amount of information and history about furniture design.

The world of furniture design is vast, and I am sure I missed some fantastic designers, so if you would like to add someone to the list, send us an email at support@EstateSales.NET, and we will get them added. This list is strictly focused on the designers and not specific furniture manufacturers, though there are many great ones.
