Design Trade Service, Inc.

An Ecommerce-driven buying group exclusively for interior designers

Raised $3,000,000

6.0% Convertible Preferred Stock

  • The U.S. interior design market consisted of 75,000 interior designers producing $17 billion in annual sales of furniture. The COVID pandemic caused homeowners to prioritize their home’s décor and the use of interior designers.

  • Founded in 2015, DTS was the only eCommerce-driven purchasing group that represents interior designers exclusively, enabling them to more economically and more easily purchase products made by major furniture manufacturers.

  • In 2020 DTS generated $2.5 million in written sales and $78,000 of cash flow. The company has grown 73%/year since 2015. Proceeds from this financing were invested in marketing, technology & infrastructure to rapidly grow DTS further.

  • DTS consolidates their purchasing power into a powerful buying consortium wherein interior designers and the manufacturers of furniture each benefit.

  • DTS solves for high order minimums, staffing requirements and follow-on order tracking associated with purchasing directly from furniture manufacturers. These barriers otherwise resign many designers to find alternative, less-efficient, higher-priced sources.

Design Trade Services, Inc., (the “Issuer”, “The Company”, or “DTS”) issued $3,000,000 in convertible preferred stock (the “Preferred Stock” or “Securities”) to (i) scale marketing, (ii) hire sales and customer service staff, and (iii) enhance the existing eCommerce infrastructure.
