ABOUT CHAIRISH Founded in 2013, Chairish is the online marketplace for exceptional home furnishings, decor, and art, connecting millions of design lovers to over 12,000 sellers around the world. Chairish is leading the luxury home furnishings industry into the digital future as online penetration for the category continues to grow dramatically post-COVID. A digital native, Chairish built a highly capital-efficient business that holds no inventory and has a scalable tech platform, with customer service that earns world-class Net Promoter Scores. Chairish has earned widespread recognition from leaders in the home design space: Architectural Digest named Chairish the #1 “can’t live without decorating app” that “will change the way you shop for furniture online.” Entrepreneur lists Chairish as one of “best entrepreneurial companies in America” and IAB recently named Chairish a “Brand to Watch”. Charish’s veteran leadership team includes the co-founder of Hotwire and celebrated fashion and design industry executives. Chairish has raised over $70 million.
