Furniture for some is just a commodity, a necessary part of life but for Kate Hull and Adrian Popa of the recently opened Seattle Consignment at 2501 Harbor Ave SW it's a passion.
The pair are owners of the store located in the former Seaway Marine building and they've stocked the nearly 10,000 square feet of space with a constantly changing array of furnishings and accessories as an adjunct to their other business Seattle Staging which last year did the furniture staging for more than 350 homes for sale in the Seattle area.
That connection, between staging homes for sale and a retail outlet, provides the synergy for what they see as stores elsewhere, first on the eastside and later in cities like Portand and San Francisco.
Hull comes from an interior design background and is from West Seattle. "I've always had a passion for helping people get their homes looking great and stylish." She said she saw the huge demand for how a staged home helps it sell a lot faster and helped her aunt and uncle get their home sold which launched her on this path.More ›
