Hooray! Gilt Groupe, the online mecca for deeply discounted luxury and fashion brands, announced today that it will expand its selection of home décor items. The retailer will now run about 15 sales a week from more than 200 brands, including indoor and outdoor furniture, rugs, lighting, decorative accessories, tabletop, bedding, and more. Some notable brands you'll see on Gilt will be Angela Adams, John Robshaw, Kim Seybert, Ligne Roset, and Missoni Home. They also plan to feature editorial and interviews with home and product designers.
"Our member is a sophisticated individual who looks for luxury in every aspect of his or her life, including their home," says Stefan Pepe, general manager of Gilt Home. "What we are doing now is offering that member a curated selection of products in a wide variety of categories for the home each day. Our goal is to give our members stylish products that can be used to furnish every room."
I am definitely excited for this! Although, I fear for my wallet a bit. It sounds like the industry bigwigs are pumped, too: even Jonathan Adler chimed in saying, "I believe great style is universal: from your clothes to your curtains, personal style is expressed through all outlets, so it only makes sense that Gilt would further its presence in the Home category." Have you ever bought any home décor from Gilt Groupe?
