LOT Founder, Kate Groes
LOT is the brainchild of entrepreneur Kate Groes.
When Kate was unable to find a place for many of her best-loved and most valuable designer furnishings in her new home, she faced the time-consuming process of selling them through an auction house.
It was then that she came up with the idea of an alternative: an online edited marketplace where high-quality modern designer furniture could be sold and bought from a trusted source, without the fuss or unpredictability of the auction house.
Kate has developed the LOT concept, where she and her team review all submissions for their quality, condition and authenticity before they are listed. Lot has been designed to be as easy to use as it is stylish, whether you’re buying or selling. So, what next? If you’re looking to sell, head to How To. Or just click through our categories if you feel like giving a much-loved modern treasure a brand new home!
What is LOT not?
LOT is not an auction site. You won’t find retailers or dealers pushing their wares, or people trying to sell you something that looks like a design classic but isn’t.
There are no airbrushed or photoshopped images; in fact, nothing but the beautiful, unvarnished truth about the designs on display.
