Dutch hospitality group La Bergère came up with a very interesting idea. To furnish up their hotel dubbed Hotel X, they are going to decorate it using furniture and knick-knacks purchased from ordinary people. Hotel X is calling on people to rummage through their attics, spare rooms and garages, and offer their unused objects for sale. People can send in the pictures of their items they’d like to sell along with a their asking price.

This is indeed a very clever way to not only find great decorating pieces but also to garner interest in the hotel. So if you have any old unwanted furniture, why not start clearing up your store room. You can sell away unwanted discount classroom furniture or any thing that you may not have any use anymore.
