This October, we launched eBay Collective, a premium shopping experience for interior designers and consumers with a curated selection of designer furniture, artisanal decor and fine art. The experience was specifically developed for eBay’s 165 million active buyers looking for sought-after products from trusted dealers and galleries. Dealers featured on the destination have been invited by eBay, and they meet eBay’s criteria to ensure a high-quality shopping experience.
Momentum continues to build for eBay Collective with a steady increase in listings and strong interest from shoppers. The experience launched with 21 dealers and recent additions include Tishu Gallery, Mars Estate Holdings of Palm Beach, City Foundry and Jon Howell Gallery – bringing our total inventory to nearly 9,000 items that range from sculptures and silver to fine art and furniture.
eBay is deeply committed to the design category and will serve as the lead sponsor for the FOG Design+Art Fair in San Francisco – celebrating today’s most significant creatives and leading contributors to the worlds of design and visual art. FOG’s Preview Gala on January 11 benefits the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and eBay will host a cocktail event on January 12 at the FOG Pop-Up created by San Francisco’s renowned A16 restaurant.
Newel, a premier art and antiques dealer, has leveraged eBay Collective to extend their reach. “For four generations, Newel has inspired international collectors and designers with our extraordinary works ranging from extensive decorative and fine art,” said Jake Baer, CEO of Newel. “Since launching on eBay Collective, we’ve been able to expand our footprint globally and generate new clients. Newel’s extensive inventory has never looked so good and we could not be any happier with the exposure we are getting!”
eBay Collective offers a cutting edge interface, using eBay’s Corrigon acquisition for its “Shop the Look” technology which allows shoppers to match inventory with other featured items. Shoppers can also browse Shop by Category and Shop by Style – with groupings like Scandinavian Cool, The Manor Reborn and Eastern Influence. We are currently enhancing the bespoke experience with new video content and curated guides created by Architectural Digest. eBay Collective also leverages eBay’s core commerce platform for check-out, providing a familiar and trusted process for buyers worldwide.
