Atena Listings on 1stdibs
1stdibs was created in 2001 by the young art collector Michael Bruno who wanted to connect the world's best dealers, shops and galleries with amateurs, curators and designers. His project was born in Paris, when he visited the legendary antique market, Marché aux Puces, in Saint-Ouen. That's when he had the idea of creating a website for all those treasures, otherwise inaccessible to individuals from around the world.
Launched in France, it is in New York, then in Los Angeles, New Orleans and Chigago that the marketplace developed. In 2012, 1stdibs consolidated its action in Europe by acquiring Onlinegalleries.com, the main United Kingdom's marketplace offering a wide selection of antiques for sale. The company continued its international expansion and collaborated with Expertissim, one of the most important e-commerce site selling art, fine antiques and jewelry. At the same time, 1stdibs was expanding in Italy and Spain.
In 2013, the company expanded worldwide and further art dealers from Sweden, Denmark, Germany and Austria joined the platform.
Today, 1stdibs.com is the leading online marketplace for high-end antiques and fine art and the largest North American online store for fine art, jewelry and home decor. According to the Harvard Business Review, "1stdibs.com has become the leading source for antiques and collectibles online searches, surpassing the famous auction houses Christie's and Sotheby's" .
Atena treasures on sale on our website are also available all over the world thanks to 1stdibs.com. Our catalogue of antiques, furniture and 20th century Design is all available on 1stdibs. Our items and collectibles benefit from an international visibility, among passionate collectors and connaisseurs. This presence on 1stdibs reinforces the international position of Atena, which has already an English website.
