We've all been there - it's time to furnish your place, and you want something with "character." But who has time to browse vintage shops? Introducing: AptDeco, an online localized hub for gently used furniture, which launched in NYC in September 2013. We had a moment to chat with AptDeco co-founder, Reham Fagiri, to find out more about this very cool website. Read on, dear friends and fellow furniture enthusiasts!

Give us a little bit more information about the AptDeco experience...

Introduce Us to the Team…

Kalam & Reham are co-founders of AptDeco. Prior to AptDeco, I [Reham] worked at Goldman Sachs as a Technology Manager and then headed to Wharton Business School for an MBA. Kalam, worked at L’Oreal USA’s Maybelline Gariner Essie division as a Vice President of Sales for 10 years.

How did AptDeco get its start?

The idea for AptDeco was born out of pure necessity: after numerous bad experiences dealing with current services, we thought to ourselves, "There must be a way to buy or sell furniture without the scams, hassle, or creepy people going into your apartment!".
