Happy Tuesday, everyone! Sorry for dropping off the face of the earth like that! The flu had me down for a full week (Literally – I could barely lift my head!) It has settled into a lovely hacking-cough. Fellow survivors of this hell tell me it doesn’t go away for a loooong time. *sigh. But enough complaining! (I have felt like such a complainer lately!) Time for shopping!
When I am putzing around on the internet I tend to gravitate towards a few reliable sources. These aren’t the cheapest options (that is another post for another day!) but they have reliable collections and great aesthetics! Today I have pulled together (in no particular order) some of my favorites and why.
One of the things I love most about World Market is their range! They have almost everything decor related that you could think of, and all in a very reasonable price range. As the name might suggest they have a lot in the Global and Boho styles which are great for layering into pretty much every other style!
CB2 is definitely one of my favorites overall. Their aesthetic is clean, modern, and high end with a hint of drama. While some of their prices for things like dining chairs are on the more expensive end of the spectrum, most of it is very reasonably priced. Almost everything I design has something from them. When I think about CB2 the first thing I think is: not boring.
Article is most known for their incredible sofas but the rest of their products are stellar too! They are experts in MCM and sell high end furniture. The prices are in the mid to high range. (the art is from OKL, Article doesn’t have any wall art)
Rejuvenation has a really reliable collection of traditional and high end products and it is my favorite place to go for mirrors, hardware, lighting, and art. Their art game is phenomenal if you are looking for something traditional but still on trend. The price tags are on the higher end and for good reason! Rejuvenation’s products have an incredible range. They can be focal pieces or supporting characters.
For a while I felt kind of foolish for not knowing that H&M had a home goods section. I was always a fan of their clothes (still am!) but I was utterly blown away by their collection and especially by the price! They haven’t moved into any big furniture but their textiles and accessories are killer! They have a soft, Scandinavian quality with lots of pops of black and fun, modern, patterns. I cannot stress this enough: the price is unbeatable. Luckily they are always adding to their collection, so there is always something new!

Chairish is really special because it is an online resource for one-of-a-kind vintage finds! This solves the problem of online design – heart. Because most designers will tell you that having something vintage in a room gives a sense of history and soul. As with most vintage, the price range is extremely varied. Some things are dirt cheap and others are astronomical. This is a great place to go for something eclectic or zany!
Blu Dot is a contemporary home decor company that provides truly stunning original designs. They have a modern, airy aesthetic, and a high price range. Their products are stellar and they are the perfect place to go for a sleek statement.
Ikea had to be included on this list. We all know Ikea! It is very familiar, reliable, and incredibly affordable. What I love about their style is that they don’t carry any items that are loud focal points. Their pieces are all supporting characters that can take center stage, but mostly help along other pieces. That doesn’t mean they are boring! The “filler” pieces are really beautiful and delicate as is characteristic of scandi design.
Obviously I shop at a lot more places than just this, but these are some of my go-to places where I know I will find what I need. I am always looking to expand my list of sources so please comment with your favorite online shop!
