Where to get your furniture online? Top 5 furniture retailers…

Whether you’re moving in to a new or home or simply replacing or upgrading your furniture, shopping for new home items is exciting! Since this year I’ve had more time living (and working) at home, I’ve been paying more attention to my surroundings. I’m not one to change furniture often or who always needs an upgrade but I started to feel that maybe I had just stylistically outgrown some items. My lifestyle has also changed – I am working from home for the time being and also entertaining friends at home more than visiting bars and restaurants. My home office was the first space that needed some changes and my enthusiasm to update quickly turned in to a small home project! 

I know that shopping for new furniture is different for everyone. Some prefer spending hours walking through local furniture stores, testing things, sitting on things – and while this can be relaxing I also find it exhausting! But as far as global trends go, it appears that there is a growing demand when it comes to shopping online and smart furniture brands and retailers are aware of this and adapting to how they care for a customer – making sure that the process is easy and often providing fast and sometimes free shipping. It has never been easier or more cost effective than to shop for furniture online than it is now. 

I love to shop online for home items actually. I find that it’s harder for me to visualise an item in a store than it is when I’m at home and seeing it online. Online furniture and home goods retailers are great at providing many different photos of the item in context which I also find inspiring. It also arrives at your door step reducing the need to find transport (the many of us city dwellers understand well!) But I think the best part of online shopping for furniture is that you can quickly compare prices across different stores easily and feel confident that you’re getting the best price. It is also pretty easy to tell if a brand is trustworthy through online reviews either on their website or on sites like trust pilot. Their social media accounts are also a great way to get to know the brand! 

The choices for shopping online for furniture almost seem endless. You can find a variety options depending on your style or budget. You can buy directly from certain manufacturers or you can find a retail store that offers a wide selection and often from brands that you already know or like.
 
If like me you’ve asked yourself where you should shop online for home decor and furniture, I’d love to provide you with my top 5 favourite furniture stores for online shopping that I’ve come across this year!  


World Market

World Market is a popular choice (if you’re in America). They have a huge selection of everything from furniture to food! It’s a place for multi-cultural finds (items are sourced from around the world), unique styles and affordable prices for any budget. If you’re looking to create an eclectic space, you should have fun browsing here!

The Design Part

I discovered The Design Part through a giveaway of a Pierre Jeanneret Chair by Srelle. I loved their Instagram aesthetic and their website was super easy to browse. Nicely curated, they carry a lot of unique items from some great brands as well! I ordered a few tableware items and shipping was quick and the customer service amazing (and easy through chat on their website!). I highly recommend it as being your first stop since they ship worldwide!

Etsy

I’m always surprised when someone hasn’t heard of Etsy, but even I don’t normally think to visit it for furniture. But I did find myself browsing it quite often and finding some really interesting things, often handmade which is always nice. At Etsy, vendors can list their own store and then you can browse what you’d like from their search function or collections. Each vendor is different so you’re dealing one-on-one with them – but reviews are readily available and Etsy is a trustworthy platform.

White on White

White on White, or WOW, is based in New York City. It started as two American design enthusiasts being inspired by Danish design and bringing it to America. They have such a great variety of mid-century modern furniture, lighting and home accents and seem to serve both high end and budget friendly spaces. I think its a great site to visit when you want a mid-century feel and some surprise!

Kartell

Kartell is a very well known award winning brand from Milan known for its distinctive design. I hesitated to include it because you probably already know it – but I continue to visit their site and find it inspiring. It’s easy to decorate and to stay neutral – but Kartell gives you options that are classic with a twist – so you can infuse your space with some personality!
