Membership types and costs:
There are two levels of Membership in our Trade Program; Standard Trade Membership and Premium Trade Membership.

Membership Benefits Overview:
How do I become a Premium Member?
A Trade Member can become a Premium Member in one of two different ways:
- For an annual membership fee of $995
- Trade Member spends $10,000 or more over a 12 month period
I purchased items on Chairish prior to becoming a Trade Member. Will that count toward my spend for Premium Membership?
Yes. All spending on Chairish, in the 12 months prior to joing the Trade Program, and using the same email address used for Trade Membership, will count toward your 12 month spend.
Does everyone at the same company qualify for Premium Membership?
Chairish recognizes "companies" as groups of individuals with the same business email domain. If you are a company member, your spend is pooled with that of your colleagues. If your cumulative 12-month spend is $10K or greater, all members of the company will become Premium members. If your company paid for the yearly subscription of Premium, all company members become Premium. Learn how to join a company here. Please note that all additional members of a known Company must upload their tax exemption documentation to their individual account here.
Do all Premium Members get a Designer Directory Portfolio?
All Premium Members are eligible to submit their Company Information and photos for consideration to join our Designer Directory. All portfolios are subject to review, ensuring that the portfolio is complete and meets our requirements, before publishing on our site. All portfolios must contain at least 10 professionally photographed images, company name and address. We suggest that you consult with our Trade Member Specialist prior to uploading content to ensure it will be approved.
What happens if I paid $995 for a Premium Membership but later surpass the $10,000 spend threshold?
A Trade Member who pays $995 for a Premium Membership, and spends $10,000 or more during their 12 month paid subscription period will receive a coupon in the amount of $995, for use on qualifying puchases on Chairish.
What happens if my 12 month spend drops below $10,000?
If your spend drops below the $10,000 threshold, you are provided with a 90-day grace period to get your spend back up to $10,000. or more. Your dedicated point of contact will alert you when your grace period begins and again, once you have 30 days left. If you have not surpassed $10,000 at the end of your 90 day grace period, your membership will revert back to our the Standard Trade Membership level. You always have the option to buy back into the Premium status by paying an annual fee of $995.
What happens to my Designer Directory Portfolio if my spend drops below $10,000 or my annual paid subscription ends?
In both scenarios, your portfolio will be paused. You always have the option to turn it back on by either buying into the Premium Membership or surpassing the $10,000 spend.
