Where Our Designers Like To Shop For Homeware

May 3, 2018

The finishing touches can make or break your renovation. When it comes to furnishing your renovation it’s important that items complement the changes you have made. Navigating your way through homeware stores can be challenging. We asked our designers where they like to shop and where they recommend our clients look for home decor items.  

In no particular order here are some of our favourite places to shop for homeware.

Structube  

Budget: $$

What they do well: Structube has fantastic furniture for very reasonable prices. Raw and natural style pieces, this store provides furniture that will fit into many styles of renovation and will stand the test of time.

Ikea

Budget: $

What they do well: We couldn’t make a list and not include IKEA. Yes, it’s budget, however, there are just some items that you don’t need to spend $$$$ on. For example, clever storage solutions, hooks, perhaps basement suite or rental furniture. We rely on them for items such as basic frames and mirrors.

Wayfair

Budget: $-$$$$

What they do well: A bit of everything! Textures such as towels, bedding are a fave of ours from Wayfair. It’s also a great website to check out if you need furniture or lighting. It doesn’t pigeonhole itself into a certain trend, Wayfair provides furniture to please all tastes.

CB2

Budget: $$$

What they do well: Very modern and sleek, it’s the perfect store to get everything from furniture to decor items. Luxe style items for the modern condo or home.

Union Wood Co.

Budget: $$$-$$$$

What they do well: Custom Wood furniture that is really stunning. Union Wood can build items that fit perfectly into your home and style. They recently build custom items for our latest loft renovation – Sugar Coated

Homesense
Budget $-$$

What they do well: Bedding and decor items! Homesense is our guilty pleasure. It’s the perfect place if you want to add some decor to your home but hasn’t got a huge budget. Now and again they also have great furniture on sale. Since all the stores are different, it can be total potluck.

Article

Budget: $$$

What they do well: Simple, no fuss, impactful furniture. As it’s online you can make some great savings on items that would normally cost you significantly more. We are in love with their sofas.

Van special

Budget: $$$$

What they do well: This high-end store embodies Scandinavian design and Japanese minimalism. We wouldn’t recommend buying all your homeware from this store unless you’re made of money. However, it’s a great option if you’re looking for a big ticket item that you love.

The Cross

Budget: $$-$$$

What they do well: Romantic decor. This store is like a fairytale dream. Soft colours and textures, this store is perfect for a more feminine lighter decor. Our Designers love the candles and throws. Think shabby chic interiors.

Urban Outfitters

Budget: $

What they do well: Young, fun and playful decor items. Boho style decor which can brighten up for your apartment. A hipster’s dream.

Restoration Hardware

Budget: $$$-$$$$

What they do well: Industrial, rustic style items. Industrial furniture pieces are at the heart of this store. Our Designers also really like the lighting here.
