When it comes to the luxury brand names inside the showrooms of design centers like ADAC in Atlanta, there’s a certain level of quality and craftsmanship that can be expected from these high-end lines that are sold to-the-trade. It’s often hard to shop these pieces without designer access, and even harder to source them online. Luckily, there are two websites bringing showroom access to digital marketplaces, and the sources below also include great mark-downs that make these pieces even more accessible. Find out where to shop exclusive showroom furniture after the jump…

The first source, Viyet, which brings hundreds of distinguished lines such as B&B Italia, Cassina, Christian Liaigre, Holly Hunt, Ligne Roset, and Mies van der Rohe to their huge selection of gently-used furniture and decor. In addition to their selection of consigned pieces, they work with designers to bring curated sales of antiques and rare finds to the website (currently, Hutton Wilkinson is selling pieces from the Duquette compound). The authenticity of each piece on the website is guaranteed, and every item is thoroughly examined in person and meticulously assessed for its condition. Shop over 4,000 pieces in their furniture selection here.

  • I like the Shine by SHO sandrine sofa via Viyet! idk if it’s the most comfortable sofa (nothing that a few cushions couldn’t fix hehe), but it looks cool! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
