Furnex is a curated online furniture marketplace that brings the convenience of shopping for new furniture to the used and artisan market. We got the idea after getting fed up with looking for quality furniture pieces on places like online classifieds so we decided to address the problem ourselves.

We've focused on improving the online shopping experience in three distinct ways. First we offer our users an easy to use clutter free browsing experience. Online classifieds often provide a dizzying and cluttered user interface leaving buyers unable to find what they're looking for. With that in mind, we went about building Furnex to ensure browsing would be a pleasurable experience. All information pertinent to furniture is readily available and the buying/selling process has been dramatically simplified.

With that in mind, we went about building Furnex to ensure browsing would be a pleasurable experience. All information pertinent to furniture is readily available and the buying/selling process has been dramatically simplified.

Next, we provide both our buyers and sellers with an added sense of security by facilitating online payment transactions. We've removed the need to pay in cash and provided the added security and convenience of credit card transactions (using Stripe) to a previously offline market.

Finally, we handle the logistics behind delivery. We open up our sellers to a market that would otherwise be unattainable if delivery were not available. Furthermore, our buyers are able to get the furniture they love without having to deal with the hassle of picking up and moving pieces across the city.

Ultimately, we've created a marketplace that makes buying and selling quality used furniture extraordinarily simple. We've addressed all the pain points identified by our users and are continually working to build a product that meets and exceeds their expectations. Furnex brings all the best furniture in a community into one place and makes buying it as simple as clicking a button.
