Chairish, an online consignment-like high-end reseller, launched today and is self-funded, without any venture funding. The company is open to raising capital in the future from the right VC, but didn’t need to for its launch, “thanks to our previous outcomes.” Chairish was founded by a team of senior executives and founding entrepreneurs from Hotwire and TripIt, including Anna and Greg Brockway, Andy Denmark (formerly with Tripit), Eric Grosse (Hotwire) and Nancy Ramamurthi (Tripit). The launch of Chairish comes at a time when a number of heavily venture-backed ecommerce retailers are trying to tap into the online furniture market, such as 1stbids, Wayfair and One Kings Lane.
