Do you remember Oriac Design? It was a Newton-based internet retailer that sold a variety of modern home furniture and accessories. It went out of business earlier this year.

Gregory Scott of ECCERE wrote me to say that ECCERE is now selling what's left of Oriac Design's merchandise. Below, please find the bulk of what he wrote:

ECCERE is a Boston company selling the remaining inventory of Oriac Design, a Newton-based internet retailer which tried and failed to compete with the likes of Hive Modern, Design Within Reach, Topdeq, and Unicahome.

The range of products available include: indoor and outdoor furniture, office chairs, accessories for your kitchen, bath, desk, and closet, indoor and outdoor lighting, carpets and floor coverings, desktop audio, luxury hangers, steel house numbers, and storage units. There's a bit of everything, but in many cases, we have only one of two of a given item remaining.

We have items from a number of premium brands including: Alessi, Artemide, Belux, Blomus, Cascando, David Design, Driade, Emform, Fatboy, FSB, Helit, Heller, Iittala, Kartell, Klenk Collection, Luceplan, Magis, Minox, Mono, Mox, Nanimarquina, Nube Italia, Radius Design, Reisenthel, Rexite, Rowenta, Side by Side, Sitag, Spore, Stelton, Tivoli Audio, Toulemonde Bochart, 24Seven, Vipp, Vitra, Wogg, Woodnotes, and Zack.

We are a verified PayPal merchant, and accept credit cards or cash via PayPal.

We normally ship via FedEx or FedEx Freight, but Boston-area customers or visitors can pick up items in our suburban warehouse.

We are NOT yard sale cheap, but our aim is to provide the lowest delivered pricing on the market. Defintely better than local prices on new items.

I have attached a searchable listing of the current inventory with pricing. Please make sure you can see both the Before and Current sale prices. There is not a website at this time (but it is under construction). The rather long list is ordered by product category, but we suggest you review the whole thing carefully, as it covers a LOT of ground. Some quantities are limited and of course, subject to prior sale. Please tell us if you need more than one of a particular item. All items are new.

Unfortunately, we are NOT yard sale cheap. Typically, the discount is twenty percent or more off rarely discounted retail prices. Please note that all prices are BEFORE shipping. Purchases picked up at the warehouse are subject to Massachusetts state sales tax.

If you do not have an old Oriac catalog, the best source of product pictures and details is the manufacturer. In the majority of cases, the attached inventory list includes a manufacturer website. You could also take a look at either cairo.fr or cairo.de , the websites of Oriac's European affiliates, as they have photos of many items. Please contact us at once if you still cannot find the product information that you need. We do have digital images of most products available on request.

Please contact us by e-mail or phone if you see something that interest you. We look forward to meeting your design needs,

Gregory Scott
Boston, MA

Since he wrote "We are not 'yard sale' cheap" twice, don't expect to steal anything from him, but there are some good deals to be had. If you would like a copy of the inventory list (it really is a long list) email me and I will forward it to you. I will also let you know when the ECCERE website is up.
