Anyone tried Interiorexpress.com?Posted by Heather Jennings at January 04. 2006
It's my first posting here after enjoying many months of interesting reading.
I've been on the hunt for a reproduction of Le Corbusier's Sofa and have come across a website called interiorexpress.com. The prices are very reasonable and even have a couch and two chair set that would be exactly what I'm looking for for around $1700. Being a budget, I'm not expecting original or Knoll quality, but am wondering if anyone has purchased furniture from here and if so, how was the process and the product?
I live in Minneapolis and the store is just outside of Chicago, so it is possible that I could take a drive to check it out, but wanted to check with you all first.

I found the reproduction of the LC set to be constructed very well. Metal frame seemed nice along with quality stitching. I did not find it very comfortable though. But I am a big guy. They do make two different series. Petite and Grand. The Grand is obviously larger. I suggest going to the above store mentioned and try it out.

I (and another guy) own interiorexpress.com. I can answer pretty much anything about the products and the process that you could think up.
The reason why items on our webpage (and ebay store at stores.ebay.com/interiorexpress) are inexpensive is that we found that the only way to survive on the web is to sell a really nice item really inexpensively. If people feel they only got a fair value for their product, they either don't come back or don't tell their friends or they complain and leave bad feedback. It's easier for us to just spend a lot of time sourcing good products and take a smaller cut.
If you are looking for unbiased feedback on the corb set, go to the ebay store and pull up one of the ads, there should be a bunch of feedback on the piece listed right in the ads. If not, I'll have Tom, our ebay guy, put what you need together.
We have NEVER had a single corb set returned to us in 3 years.
