Because 1stDibs is a marketplace that connects buyers and sellers, we do not own or store the inventory ourselves. Therefore, we are unable to place orders or check out items on behalf of customers. If you are a member of our Trade program, we can schedule a site demo to show you how to purchase through your account and answer any questions about the checkout process. You can find step by step instructions on how to purchase here. If you are not yet a member of the Trade program but are an active design, architecture, hospitality, or procurement firm, you can apply here.
