The Secret Affordable Shops Every Designer Swears By
It’s a feeling every design-obsessed person gets as they scroll through their feeds. And it’s no wonder: achieving a pin-worthy room requires the perfect mix of pieces from a range of sources, many of which come with big ol’ price tags.
But we’re going to let you in on a little secret. Having a great space doesn’t mean relying on pricey shops like Design Within Reach (as much as we love it!). So we’re opening up our little black book of online design resources, from a secret shop for midcentury modern-inspired pieces to the best place to get a steal on vintage accessories.
Contrary to its name, AllModern isn’t all modern… and it isn’t all totally affordable either. But with a little digging you can find some serious deals on big, fancy brands like Kartell and Knoll. Every single thing on the site is on sale by a small percentage so you’ll definitely save a pretty penny on quality furniture.
With a range of furniture, decor, and fabrics for every room, Apt2B is perfect for those moving into new places and transitioning into “adult” design. Though the prices aren’t IKEA cheap, the quality is much better.
Dot & Bo
Known for their flawless midcentury reproductions, Dot & Bo is the spot for finding quality pieces without the price tags. Nearly everything they sell is on-trend and often on sale, so if stylish affordability is your thing, Dot & Bo will bring you serious design joy.
EBTH – Everything But The House
We’re letting you in on one of the best-kept secrets out there. Not many designers even know about the goodness that is EBTH . This auction site is like Ebay for interior design — they literally sell everything but the house with bids starting at just a few dollars.
France & Son
France & Son’s collection is expertly curated, so you know you’re getting the highest quality and the highest style for the lowest price. Mostly modern, their stuff is perfect for a small space where a few key pieces make all the difference.
For your shopping convenience, Froy splits their decor into different styles like Nautical, Bohemian, and Scandinavian. There are always a plethora of items on sale so make sure to frequent this design site often.
Everyone knows Home Depot, but not everyone knows that the go-to hardware store is also a mecca for affordable design, including great lamps, plants, outdoor furniture and even rugs.
Worldstock Fair Trade
Lots of designers source from Overstock, but not everyone knows about their fair trade counterpart, Worldstock. If you’re looking for good deals on eclectic design, Worldstock sources from import companies around the world using only the bests practices.
