Do you charge a sales fee or commission?
No. It's completely free to list on LushPad. We don't charge a listing fee, or a commission on anything sold on our site.
Once you list your item on our site, your ad goes into a moderation queue that we review to make sure your items fit with the LushPad mandate of used high-quality contemporary designer furniture, and vintage mid-century modern furniture and accessories.
Your ad should go live within 24 hours. We will email you to let you know if it's been accepted or rejected.
If you have ANY questions about our listing process, please contact us via our contact page. We'll get you set up on the right path.
Approximately how long to receive a registration confirmation email?
Your LushPad Registration confirmation is sent immediately. If you do not receive it, you should check your junk mail folder in case it has been redirected there. If you still can't find your confirmation email, you can contact us through the site and we will manually activate your account.
I can't add my website address. What gives?
Our site doesn't allow linking within the ads, but if you'd like to buy a featured ad, there's a special field you can add your URL.
How does your Condition rating system work?
The condition rating system is broken to five levels. It's important to be honest in your assessment of the condition of the item you're listing.
Excellent - A brand new, unused piece or a used piece in mint condition. No detectable wear and tear.
Very Good - Wear and tear is practically undetectable. There are no obvious nicks or scratches. All parts are accounted for and fully functional.
Good - The piece shows a modicum of wear and tear, or some very light scratches, but is presentable.
Fair - Scratches and worn or loose components can be easily repaired.
Poor - The piece requires significant repair, or parts in good condition can be used to refurbish another piece.

What is considered an original?
Furniture & Accessories - Authentic Originals are pieces from the mid-century era or from the era they were initially designed. They usually have a makers mark, or high quality manufacturing (joints put together well, expensive upholstering, etc.).
Licensed Originals are classic designs that are manufactured by the company who holds the license to the original design. For iconic pieces of mid-century design, these are usually easy to names to recognize such as Herman Miller, Vitra, Knoll, Cassina, etc.
Fine Art - An original piece of fine art is traceable back to the artist via signature and provenance. It is also usually a one-off.
I bought an item but did not receive it. Are you guys to blame?
It's unfortunate if this situation has happened to you, but Lushpad is not liable. We only provide a platform for people to buy and sell.
We will however do our best to help you resolve this situation. Once the situation has been fully assessed and it proves that the seller is in error, we will ban seller from our site permanently.
