The first step of the listing form will ask for you to create a Title for your listing and assign it a category based on the type of item you are selling. The form will also ask for you to upload photos that accurately represent your item for sale. You will upload photos at the beginning of the listing process so that they can be easily referenced as you complete the form. Please reference your photos to describe your item in writing in the Description field, as well as to select Brand/Designer/Artist, Style, Material, Color, and Room tags in Step 2: The Details section of the listing form.
As you are filling out Step 1: The Basics, you will receive error messages as you go if you have left any required fields empty. Once you have completed The Basics, continue onto Step 2 of the listing form. If you would like to save your listing as a draft to finish later, click the Save button in the top right of the listing form page.
Step 1 will include:
- Title of Your Listing
Title of Your Listing
Your listing title should be as descriptive as possible, as the keywords included in the title will help shoppers locate your item.
Use the following formula to create a descriptive title for your item. If you don’t know the maker, date, or style, be as detailed as possible with the details you do know about your item.
Date/Period + Style + Maker/Brand + Color + Material + Category
Example: "1950s Mid-Century Eames Black Leather Lounge Chair"
Please avoid adding any promotional messages in the title, such as: Sale, Free Shipping, BOGO, etc., as they do not contribute to your listing's search rank.

Correctly categorizing your products will help shoppers locate your product quickly via advanced search filters and the navigation menu.
When you click into the Category field, a list of all possible category options available will appear. You can drill down to subcategories to select the most relevant categorization for your type of item.
You can also simply start typing the word for the type of furniture or decor item that best applies to your item for sale. As you start typing, a list of Category tag options will appear. Select the most appropriate Category tag from the list.
Great photography will draw a shopper into your listing when they are browsing or searching on Chairish. Great photos give our customers the confidence to make a purchase - even when they can’t see the product in person.
Please visit our Photo Guide for further tips on taking photos for your listing: Chairish Photo Guide
You can upload up to 12 photos of your item and we encourage you to upload as many photos as possible. Width or height of each photo must be at least 460 pixels.
You can drag and drop a group of images into the photo upload field in order to upload all images for your listing at once. Once all images are uploaded, you can also drag and drop each individual photo to reorder the sequence of the photos. The first photo on the listing form, which is also the largest photo block, will be the thumbnail image for your listing and will receive a silhouette edit on a white background.
In the description, it is encouraged that you document all of the details of the product with a minimum of 2 full sentences. It is also helpful to format the description with correct grammar and punctuation so that the first impression of your item to the shopper is clear and professional.
Although there is no strict format to follow when creating descriptions, it is important to know what should and shouldn’t be included. All keywords in the description are searchable on our site and on search engines. Please add any key terms you think are important for locating your listing via search within the body of the description paragraph(s).
