About

Hey there, I’m Sean Washington. I’m currently leading the charge as CTO at Design Kollective. In a nutshell:

Design Kollective is an online space for you to shop from local brick and mortar furniture retailers. Browse their curated sales to find fun and unique pieces that you can have in a flash, or shop by location to find that cool shop in your local neighborhood and see what they have to offer from the comfort of your own home.
