Forums , blog and Atlas
This site makes Forums, Blog and Atlas comments available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.
You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use Design Addict to post any message which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, threatening, invasive of a person’s privacy, or otherwise violative of any law.
The forum has been set up purely to reflect public opinion and, therefore, Design Addict may not be held liable for any messages appearing therein. Any offensive message brought to the attention of Design Addict will be investigated and, where appropriate, removed.
Considering the real-time nature of this forum, it is impossible for Design Addict to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that we do not always actively monitor the contents of posted messages and are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message.
The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of Design Addict. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact Design Addict, immediately by email.
We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

Buy & Sell
Design Addict will not be held responsible for any listing content, claims, outcome results of responding to any or all listings, as well as the results of any defects that may be found to exist or any other consequential damages that may result from using our services directly or indirectly.
Design Addict will not be held responsible for any transaction made through the Buy & Sell.
Design Addict provides a platform for all items related to one of the categories or sub-categories that organize the Buy & Sell.
The sale is directly between the buyer and the seller. The role of DesignAddict.com is limited to making the Site available and maintaining the Site. DesignAddict.com is an intermediary and not an agent for either the buyer or the seller for any purpose.
The Buy & Sell is curated by Design Addict. To ensure a pleasant experience for our users, we select the items that are submitted on the Buy & Sell.
The appropriate styles are, amongst others: Early Modernism, Bauhaus, Ulm School, Mid-Century Modern, Space-Age Modern, Post-Modernism...
The period covered by the Buy & Sell is from 1910 to 1989 but we might accept more recent items, individually, according to their rarity and their interest as a collectors’ item.
If you post an item on the Buy & Sell that does not fit within this description, you will be contacted regarding your posting and it may be deleted. By using the Buy & Sell, you accept that your listings must be validated by Design Addict before being posted on the Site.
The types of items we don’t accept:
- Recent reproductions of design classics.
- Knock-off or unlicensed reproductions of design classics.
- Items that are presented, intentionally or not, in an inaccurate way.
- Items whose quality doesn’t seem to correspond to the expectations of our visitors.
- Items whose attribution seems wrong or questionable.
- Items listed by a seller who does not seem to offer serious guarantees necessary to the accomplishment of a smooth transaction with the buyer.
Of course, the listing of an item that is not showcased on the Buy & Sell because of one of these reasons will not have to be paid for by the seller. The payment process is activated only after validation of the listing!
Design Addict offers the sellers the possibility to place up to six pictures per listing.
We expect that at least the first image associated to the listing has a quality that is in accordance with the expectations of our visitors (sharp image of a well-lit item on a neutral background).
If none of the uploaded images correspond to these criteria, we reserve the right to replace them with the mention “pictures available on the seller’s website” if the seller decides to redirect the potential buyers on his own website or “ask seller for pictures” if the seller decides to be contacted directly by the potential buyers.
When you select the option «Yes, show my object, and share with the DesignAddict community», you give Design Addict the right to use your images in the other sections of Design Addict for an unlimited period of time.
In return, DesignAddict will associate your image to a courtesy and a link to your Seller page on the Buy & Sell.
