Stocks, mutual funds and ETFs are not the only assets attracting attention heading into the new year. High-end furniture, art and fashion are also gaining steam, said David Rosenblatt, CEO of 1stdibs. "Beautiful antiques are never out of fashion and the market is benefiting from the strong economy," said Rosenblatt, adding that collectors are starting to complement their antiques with "equally beautiful" contemporary pieces. 1stdibs offers a global marketplace for collectors and dealers of high-end furniture, art, jewelry and fashion. More and more web sites are shipping worldwide, allowing consumers all over the globe access to their storefront, according to Rosenblatt. The online luxury commerce market continues to grow because consumers no longer feel the need to touch and feel a product before purchasing it, even at very high price points. This is particularly true for high-end furniture, according to Rosenblatt, where consumers don't have boutiques locally that carry what they want. "The average distance between our buyer and seller is 2,134 miles," said Rosenblatt. "This year 1stdibs will sell $150 million in product online. That number is growing at 100%. Three years ago that number was zero. 1stdibs processes over 10 order each day that are north of $10,000, which speaks to the fact that consumers are very comfortable making sizable purchases online."
