NEW YORK, May 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 1stDibs, a leading marketplace for extraordinary design, has further expanded its European presence by unveiling a localized site for France. The site will allow local shoppers to browse and receive customer support in their local language and view personalized search results. This follows the company’s launch of a localized site in Germany last month.
“1stDibs started over 20 years ago with the promise of bringing the Paris Flea Market online,” said David Rosenblatt, CEO of 1stDibs. “France represents one of the strongest design markets in the world and one of our largest non-English speaking markets, so it’s fitting that we offer these customers a more native shopping experience.”
In 2021, approximately 40% of 1stDibs sellers, one-third of traffic, and one-fifth of buyers were located outside of the United States, with a strong presence in Western Europe. Covering vintage, antique and contemporary furniture, home decor, fine art, jewelry, watches, fashion and newly launched auctions, 1stDibs offers over $14 billion in unique pieces at a variety of price points.
The exceptional quality of parts sold on 1stDibs comes from a wide range of inventory from an approved selection of over 4,700 sellers and dealers worldwide and consumers in the UK will now be able to shop across all categories in their local language. Notable French sellers include Galerie BSL, Galerie Clement Cividino Ent, Galerie Negropontes, Galerie Patrick Seguin, Maison Fragile, TRAME PARIS.
The editorial title of 1stDibs Introspective will also expand content tailored to this specific audience, including profiles of local interior designers and interviews with local sellers, in addition to cultural recommendations and reviews.
