At Collécte, we believe designer pieces should be authentic and accessible.
Our belief drives our mission to eliminate the need for replica designer furniture and accessories in the market.
In order to achieve this, we have created Collécte, an Australian marketplace purposely curated to offer authentic, pre-owned designer furniture and accessories.
Collécte is a marketplace that directly connects sellers to buyers offering sellers the most competitive commission rates in the industry.
At Collécte, our values anchor us as we work towards delivering our mission.
Authentic and Curated. Over time, we have seen the damage that replica goods do to the design industry. As such, authenticity is at the core of everything we do. If you buy goods from Collécte, you know that you are always buying authentic and supporting design across the world. Collécte deliver on this promise by reviewing every listing to provide a curated marketplace to our users.
Easy to Use. At Collécte we recognise that in order for our users to engage with one another, the marketplace must be easy to use. That is why we have taken the hassle out of organising the delivery of the goods you buy. We have automated the process for buyers and sellers to directly connect with one another. This is just the beginning and we will continue to drive further ease of use as we go.
Competitive Commission. At Collécte, we have invested in automation to keep the costs of the transactions for our users down. This translates into less commission being charged to our sellers to transact, and more money in our user’s pockets.
Melissa is an interior decorator with a passion for authentic design.
Born in Melbourne, Melissa spent her early career working for two major fashion and cosmetic companies before furthering her studies at RMIT in Interior Decoration.
Following her studies, Melissa co-founded interior decorating firm, G&C Design, and focused on residential spaces for the next seven years.
Melissa spent the next five years living in the USA with her family, where she took the opportunity to expand her knowledge of Interiors, working for a high-end online furniture consignment marketplace.
On her return from overseas, Melissa returned to work as an interior decorator and continued to be frustrated by the easy availability of replica goods, and the lack of avenues to source pre-owned authentic designer goods in Australia.
Melissa started Collécte in 2020 to fix this problem creating a marketplace where Collécte is synonymous with Authenticity.
