Tapping into the “collaborative consumption” trend, the e-commerce furniture store Made.com in the UK has encouraged current and potential customers of the platform to reach out to each other in physical space and share experience. The site prompts shoppers to meet those who have already purchased furniture from the site to see how they integrated the pieces into their interiors.

Ralph Lauren pays tribute to its own archives as well as to the rich history of the USA by launching a new destination, RL Vintage, where it unveils fashionable pieces drawn from the past. On the website, users can explore unique items to discover more about the story behind them, their origin and date of creation. Each season, Ralph Lauren will select different rare pieces from the House’s archives—the pieces will relate to some particular theme. The current range, The Western Collection, celebrates the history of the USA (some of the items are already sold out).
