Specializing in architectural salvage items and furnishings, the company offers designers and consumers broad selection.
eBay Collective, which provides curated, high-quality shopping experiences for interior designers and consumers, has welcomed a new dealer joining its exclusive ranks. Architectural Artifacts, Inc. provides architectural salvage and furnishings curated from around the world, specializing in selling lighting, decorative art, and seating.
“Our favorite clients are commercial designers, including anyone working on new boutique hotels, restaurants, retail spaces, and bars,” said Stuart Grannen, Founder of Architectural Artifacts, Inc. “What’s unique about our business is that all of our clients – whether they are a residential interior designer, architect, or homeowner – are looking for unique one-of-a-kind pieces for their projects.
Architectural Artifacts, Inc. was founded and incorporated in 1987 by archaeologist and rabid collector Stuart Grannen. Its physical store now encompasses 80,000 square feet of extraordinary antique objects at competitive prices. The company especially searches for intriguing, statement making and exquisitely eccentric items.
“eBay Collective provides consumers with curated experiences that are complemented with unique inventory and scope of choices to shop from,” said Sam Bright, GM of Art and Collectibles at eBay. “With Architectural Artifacts, Inc. we’re further enabling our buyers to find world-class artifacts and antiques and are excited to surface their unique inventory to designers and consumers alike.”
eBay Collective provides next-generation shopping experiences providing interior designers and consumers with curated inventory of furniture, antiques, contemporary design and fine art. The bespoke experience is specifically targeted at eBay’s buyers who are looking for sought-after products from trusted dealers and galleries.
eBay Collective also features integrated “Shop the Look” Artificial Intelligence technology that is powered by Corrigon, which was acquired by eBay last Fall. Its image recognition technology allows shoppers to hover over an image and the tool searches eBay Collective listings to surface inventory that matches or is a close match to that particular portion of the image.
