Roundup: Favorite Online Decor Shops

In the design world, we call it sourcing, purposeful shopping, research, inquest. As a designer, furniture are not just rectangular pieces {or whatever shape} to us & swoon-worthy objet trouves makes us gasp with excitement every time. We consider these items a piece of a story that seamlessly narrates what our design client is all about. Don’t get me wrong, going to brick and mortar shops is a must as well as developing relationships with trade partners and vendors is crucial {especially with local artisans}. But when we’re explaining a piece to a client, nothing is easier than capturing an image or a link online and saying…”something like this.” And helps in finishing up design boards too {check mine at Houzz!}. Well, my purposeful shopping and research always bring me to these online shops that seem to absolutely get me & my client’s needs:

For accessories….

Domino online shop

Domino, the beloved mag which launched a slew of design-loving and decorating-savvy community may have initially collapsed but it’s thriving again with it’s e-magazine, quarterly printed issues & yes, a wonderful e-shop. It sells various home items but I’m especially in love with their accessories.

furbish studio

For vibrant, colorful and even whimsical little finds, you won’t get disappointed shopping at Furbish Studio.

For amazing vintage finds ….

chairish vintage

Of course there’s always Craigslist but Chairish is amazingly curated and well-edited, I couldn’t help but “heart” almost every piece. Additional perk, you can actually negotiate on the item pricing, now that is awesome!

One Kings Lane shop

Of course One King’s Lane is one of my faves. Flash sales of impeccable pieces is an adventure in itself. You should really check out their vintage items!

For deals …

wayfair shop

Contrary to what most people think, Wayfair does not carry only low to medium-end products. It also carries high design brands like Jonathan Adler and Herman Miller. Their discounts are not to be beat. Here’s a tip, if you are a designer or working with a designer, join their Trade Services which gives you more discounts on already discounted prices. You’ll get personalized assistance from a dedicated rep & the Wayfair brand includes other amazing shops; All Modern, Dwell Studio & Birch Lane.

For the modern lover….

all modern shop

All Modern is amazing! Sometimes these items can be downright super pricey but this shop has alternatives for the same look!

For the eclectic ….

dwell studio shop

Dwell Studio… Eclectic with the occasional glam, whimsical & bohemian vibe, this is a brand neo-traditionalists can relate to.

For masculine finds ….

jayson home and garden shop

I’ve been in love with Jayson Home & Garden ever since I stepped into their shop in Chicago about 6 years ago. The feel is masculine, global and rustic and all around just sophisticated.

For the traditional …

horchow shop

Then there’s Horchow, Neiman Marcus’s sister brand for all things home related. It’s all about beautiful, more ornate and Euro-traditional items & pieces.
