NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaiyo, a full-service marketplace for pre-loved furniture committed to great design, exceptional customer care, and a more sustainable planet, today released its third annual Trend Report. Kaiyo's 2023 Trend Report includes proprietary data, consumer insights, key market trends, and findings highlighting the continued rise of the secondhand furniture market. Featuring commentary from Kaiyo's CEO, Alpay Koralturk, surrounding the industry at large, the report also uncovers 2024 design trend predictions from experts such as Luxury Home Stager Jason Saft (@jasonsaft of @stagedtosellhome), Founder and Creative Director of YOWIE, Shannon Maldonado, Interior Designer + Founder of @normal.nyc Lale Boz (@laleboz), and Design Expert Kellie Brown (@itsmekellieb),
"Nine years ago, I created Kaiyo to make buying and selling pre-loved furniture convenient and better for the planet. In the years since, it's been exciting to see retailers and consumers embrace resale, first in fashion and now across a wide range of verticals. Still, recent inflation and economic fears have fueled a demand for less expensive options across the board, particularly in home decor, creating an influx of low-quality, mass-produced furniture that falls out of fashion as new trends arise.
While we love to see how style evolves, we at Kaiyo have always advocated for timeless designs that transcend trends — pieces made to stand the test of time. We believe owning high-quality furniture does not have to break the bank, and passing on your furnishings when it's time for a change can be hassle- and waste-free. Kaiyo and our customers are building a proud community of caretakers committed to rehoming quality furniture and extending its lives for years to come. We're thrilled to share key insights that we've gathered from our customers and community over the past year." - Alpay Koralturk, Founder & CEO, Kaiyo
