What: Viyet Dallas launch party

Where: Jan Showers Showroom

The 411: Dallas VIPs showed up to celebrate the launch of Viyet, an online destination to buy and sell high-end furniture, accessories, and lighting. Jan Showers Showroom was an obvious choice to host the soiree, where Viyet CEO Elizabeth Brown got to know the people who are bound to be her best Dallas clients. “Our business strategy is to curate in top design hubs and sell nationally,” she said. “The real estate and design market is expanding rapidly in Dallas, and Viyet is poised to grow with the city and its burgeoning Design District.”

This is how the white-glove experience works: Viyet’s team does a physical evaluation of each piece, photographs it, and coordinates the pickup and delivery to the buyer. Viyet accepts designer pre-owned furniture, lighting, and accessories sourced from individual homes, interior designers, and showrooms. The benefit to the buyer is, of course, beautiful home furnishings at much-less-than-retail prices, from names like Baker, Blu Dot, Century Furniture, Christian Liaigre, Herman Miller, Alexa Hampton, Jonathan Adler, Knoll, Ligne Roset, Mitchell Gold + BobWilliams, Noguchi, and Philippe Starck.
