Urban Consign & Design
Urban Consign & Design – High end furniture consignment gallery
Now open at 38 Jackson Street downtown, is Hoboken’s first high-end furniture consignment gallery: Urban Consign & Design.
Aiming to modernize the traditional consignment business (the reselling of lightly used, high end home furnishings) Urban Consign & Design offers customers a unique service focused on connecting buyers and sellers in a safe and convenient environment. They renovated a 5000+ square foot old wallpaper factory into a gleaming, funky loft-like gallery unlike anything in Hoboken!
Urban Consign in Hoboken offers luxury furniture at a discount
Founded earlier in 2012, Urban Consign provides luxurious home furnishings for a fraction of their original retail cost. In addition to providing quality merchandise, Urban Consign & Design also believes in simplifying the process for consumers by offering free in-home evaluations and low cost pick up and delivery. They hand inspect all pieces before accepting or reselling in the gallery – you will NOT find IKEA-grade products here.
“We were always amazed of how much furniture goes to waste in Hoboken and Jersey City,” said Cyndi and Paul Fitzgerald, founders of Urban Consign & Design, “There was no safe secondary market for the resale of all this barely used furniture. Everything goes to online classified advertisements, storage or is given away for free. The most common line we’ve heard is “I just spent too much money to just give it away!”
Given Hoboken and Jersey City are transient towns, and the general discontent of movers forced to leave their belongings behind, the husband and wife team saw an opportunity in which they seized. “There is really no reason to pay full retail price for a dining room set in today’s economy, Hoboken and Jersey City are such transient towns most of the items we get in are barely, if ever, used.”
The two believed that by creating Urban Consign & Design, they would offer renovators and decorators alike a “one stop shop” to browse at their leisure, and new residents and homeowners a place to shop for quality items without the markups of retail.
In addition to upscale furniture and household goods, Urban Consign & Design features local artists and amazing photography with a smattering of antiques and other fun things. The gallery currently boasts the works of Richard Satz, one of a kind photography, in one of a kind hand designed frames.
Urban Consign & Design is located at 38 Jackson Street on the 2nd floor of the Chambord Place warehouse, next to the CrossFit Hoboken gym – enter through the doorway on the corner of Jackson Street and Observer Highway or the CrossFit entrance.
They are open Saturdays from 10am-6pm and Sundays from 11am-5pm, with some weekday hours or private viewing appointments available.Hoboken NJ
