Accor selling used furniture on eBay

On Tuesday Accor, Courcouronnes, France, launched reBorn, a special eBay online store to sell the hotel giant’s used furniture.

The store includes both indoor and outdoor furniture as well as decorating accessories. A total amount of 2,500 items in good condition, including Louis XVI bedside tables, bronze chandeliers, 1980s wing armchairs, minibar furniture and even safes will be sold.

“The reBorn project satisfies a current social trend that gives new value to second-hand items in good condition by creating new circular economy models. Just look at the success of garage sales, second-hand swaps and bargain websites,” said Sophie Flak, Accor’s executive vice president for academies and sustainable development.
