San Diego, Calif. (June 4, 2014) – Loveseat , a furniture market app and website designed to connect local buyers and sellers of stylish, unique and hard-to-find items, today announced the debut of its platform in its flagship city of San Diego. With Loveseat’s person-to-person marketplace concept, consumers can connect with local sellers, pay for items and schedule deliveries for an interactive and hassle-free furniture shopping experience.
“We realized during our move to San Diego from the East Coast that selling and shopping for quality, vintage pieces of furniture is not easy,” said Chris Stanchak, who founded Loveseat along with his wife, Jenny. “We developed Loveseat to provide people with a reputable, easy-to-use platform that connects retailers and consumers and we’re thrilled to be launching it first in San Diego where the company is headquartered.”
During development stages, the duo worked together to combine Chris’s background in ecommerce and mobile payments with Jenny’s expertise in software engineering and iOS development. Chris previously worked as the founder of TicketLeap, while Jenny was a software engineer for Venmo.
With Loveseat, buyers can browse items locally based on geographic area, save and share favorite items, bid on items with any major credit card and contact sellers directly through the platform to avoid having to share personal contact information. Sellers can set a minimum price on listed items, share listings through social media to connect to prospective buyers, and have the option to enable Loveseat delivery to entice new buyers.
Buyers and sellers can download the Loveseat App for free through the App Store, or create a free profile online at Loveseat Used Furniture App. There is no fee to list a piece of furniture through Loveseat; sellers are charged three percent only once they sell an item, and buyers pay a 10 percent fee on top of the item price.
