Amateur and professional interior designers will soon have the opportunity to influence the furniture market, as a new website allows them to choose the pieces that will enter mass-production.

The Telegraph reports that internet entrepreneur Ning Li and a team of high-profile investors has announced the launch of Made.com, a new website that links buyers directly to furniture manufacturers.

Designers have the opportunity to showcase their designs on the site, where visitors can vote on their favorite pieces. Items that receive the highest amount of votes will be put into production, and the individuals who voted on them will be able to buy them at a discounted price.

The creators expect that buyers can save between 50 and 80 percent on featured furnishings by eliminating the wholesaler, according to the Made.com.

Buyers will also be able to choose from designs from around the world, as site organizers have already worked with designers from the UK to the Far East, according to the news source.

Li told the media outlet that the online platform is intended to "bring appealing design to as many people as possible, revolutionizing how furniture is sold and how you buy it."
