In an age in which a few virtual clicks can bring almost anything to our finger tips, it’s a wonder why the idea for a lifestyle website enabling us to purchase furniture we've seen in design hotels around the world hasn’t appeared sooner.
The brainchild of Isabel Rutland, Discover & Deliver sells a tightly curated selection of designs by the likes of Sergio Rodrigues, Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobson and Jean Prouve, as seen in hotels and restaurants from Hotel Americano in New York to the Waterhouse in Shanghai and Belgraves in London.
Searchable via hotel or designer, the items can be purchased directly through Discover & Deliver and are made by the original manufacturer. And should you not be able to find an item you’ve seen, then send them a snap and the company’s ‘Find It’ service will do their best to identify and provide you the opportunity to purchase it.
The website also acts as an online design library, showcasing styles that range from the Arts & Crafts movement of the 19th Century and the Fin de siècle Viennese and early German modernist works, through to Bauhaus and Modernism, right up to the present day.
