Vintage furniture company secures £8m in Series A funding round
An London-based online vintage furniture retailer has announced a Series A funding round of £8m led by Active Partners Investments.
Vinterior offers buyers a selection of furniture, lighting, art, textiles and home decor, encompassing a range of styles including mid-century and art deco as well as British and French antiques.
Founded in London in 2016, Vinterior has expanded to 1,800 sellers from over 30 countries and has reportedly over $200m in vintage furniture and antiques in the past year.
Sandrine Zhang Ferron, CEO and co-founder of Vinterior, said: “We founded Vinterior on the belief that vintage offers a better, more sustainable way to consume and a way to decorate your home in a truly unique and meaningful way.
“We believe that everyone - whether furnishing their first London flat or their country home in the Cotswolds - should have the option to live stylishly and sustainably.
“It’s been an incredible journey so far, and we’re delighted to have Active Partners on board for this next chapter as we expand our team and business across Europe.”
Tom Profumo, investor at Active Partners, said: “Vinterior is, quite simply, an online treasure trove. Its exceptional collection of beautiful, high-quality furniture and home accessories offers something for every home, and opens up access to the vintage market to consumers around the world.
“With the rise of recommerce and the circular economy, consumers are increasingly prioritising sustainability alongside style, driving increasing demand for vintage. We’re thrilled to be working with Sandrine and her team, and can’t wait to see what this next chapter holds.”
