You've just stayed at a swanky hotel in Sao Paulo and fallen in
love with… the bed. It would look simply darling in your own home,
but how on earth can you get your mitts on it?
Well, as of this week, it's easy. No need to scour the net, bug
your interior designer friends or try to get it copied, because new
website discover-deliver.com is the answer.
Founded by Isabel Rutland, who whilst on honeymoon at the
Greenwich Hotel in New York wanted to buy and take home some of the
furniture. And after a bit of research amongst her friends, she
realized she wasn't alone. So Isabel quit her job in private equity
and has spent the last two years, researching, travelling and now
launching discover-deliver.com which currently sells over 450
products sourced from over 120 hotels, bars and restaurants from JK
Place in Capri to Noma in Copenhagen to Waterhouse in Shanghai.
From beds to lamps to water glasses, pieces have been corralled and
cross-referenced so that you can imagine how each piece works in
Other services offered by the company include 'Find It'; customers
can enlist the help of the design team to source pieces that aren't
necessarily on the site. Or 'Deliver It'; a service to smooth the
logistics of shipping and dealing with local taxes and customs
duties on furniture that discover-deliver.com customers have bought
on their travels. 'How will I get it home?' should no longer put
you off buying (after many cups of mint tea) that vast carpet from
the souk in Marrakech.
