Discover & Deliver
Newly launched London-based website Discover & Deliver acts as a conduit between hotel furnishings manufacturers and design-savvy consumers. Intended for those who can’t get enough of hotel chic, the site allows consumers to buy the products they’ve seen in top hotels and restaurants while away from home.
The website has collaborated with a network of restaurants and hotels to obtain a vast repertoire of stylish but usually hard-to-find furnishings.
Consumers without a specific product in mind, but a taste for hospitality-standard products, can be inspired by browsing through Places – a collection of hotels and restaurants hand-picked for their “commitment to design excellence” – or Designers, a catalogue of works by specific designers and design groups.
In addition, the site offers a special sourcing service. Looking for that Frank Lloyd Wright cherry wood barrel chair that got away, for instance? For a fee of £25 ($38) (which is refunded if a purchase is made), one can enlist the support of the website’s Find It service; submit a personal photo of a coveted item along with the location and name of the hotel or restaurant, and D&D helps locate it. If the requested item can’t be traced, D&D will present comparable available alternatives.
All items are shipped for free, around the globe.
