Why switch to second hand?

Second hand, a trend to adopt! For a few years now, a large number of stores (physical or virtual) have specialized in the sale of second-hand items. From the small neighborhood thrift store, to the more chic flea markets, second hand has become a style of consumption in its own right. In this article, we'll look at that in more detail.

Slow consumption

Stemming from the slow movement born in the 1980s, slow consumption is a true art of living. It is about thinking about the way we buy, and adopting a few reflexes to consume differently.

This trend favors second-hand products for economic, but also ecological reasons.

Zero Waste

Buying a piece of furniture or a second-hand decorative piece means opting for zero waste! By choosing this eco-responsible approach, we reduce waste and our carbon impact, which is a real boost for the planet.

Economic consumption

The second hand has the advantage of offering a very good quality/price ratio. It allows you, for example, to buy pieces from great designers at a lower cost. You can even find second-hand wonders on special offer (yes, yes, it's possible). At Design Market, we even have a section on our site dedicated to it. Here are a few examples:

1. Brass Chandelier - 2. Deer Wall Decoration - 3. Bird Carpet - 4. Two Seater Folding Sofa - 5. Cansado Bench by Charlotte Perriand - 6. Yellow Puffin - 7. White Floor Lamp

High-quality pieces

Secondhand is a quality cage. It offers durable pieces made with high-quality materials that you can keep longer.

A trend to watch

Unlike new items, used items have a history. In the world of decorating, this testament to the past is very trendy. Hunting and discovering deco pieces at flea markets, or on specialized websites, allows you to create authentic vintage retro atmospheres, but also perfectly in the air of time.

Every week, our teams offer you to discover our vintage collections to help you find your happiness among thousands of second-hand design furniture. So don't hesitate to contact us and follow us on our social networks.
