Since we are spending more time than usual at home, I thought it might be fun (and useful) to make a roundup of my favorite 5 online shops when I’m on the hunt for new furniture pieces.
I also really love to buy directly from designers but multi-brand retailers are very convenient when I need to have an overview of the possibilities. The amazing thing about the web is being able to literally shop worldwide without leaving our laptops so the following shops are based in different corners of the world and ship nearly everywhere. Here are my 5 online shops for furniture lovers.
FINNISH DESIGN SHOP – A gold mine if you are in love with Scandinavian design. Here you can shop all the most famous Scandi brands such as Muuto, Artek, Montana, Iittala, Secto, or Norman Copenhagen but also lots of international established brands such as Artemide, Fornasetti,.. you can choose among 200 labels. I bought my first plant stand from Ferm Living here. Greenery decor is the best, it’s a cool way to bring nature in no matter the season.
PAMONO – Did anyone say vintage or Mid-Century? This is the online destination if you are looking for vintage and Mid-Century furniture. They source all kinds of items, from furniture, lighting, and carpets to decor pieces. On Pamono you can also sell your vintage pieces to their vendors: I find it a cool option if you want to refresh your interior and put your furniture back into the market. Buy less but better!
CONNOX – A very international platform selling both well established and smaller brands. Connox is one of the few online shops that also has a .ch platform (friends based in Switzerland this is for you). From design classics to Scandinavian design, from ecodesign to Bauhaus pieces, here you can find fur sure something that will match your style.
MOHD – Since 1968, it’s usually my place to check if I’m looking for established international brands that make timeless pieces. This is my place to go when I look for Italian masterpieces: Cassina, Zanotta, Flos, Poltrona Frau…you name it. Have also a look at their selection of outdoor pieces: at the end it’s June and we are allowed for an outdoor restyling!
MADE.COM – Discovered many years ago, it’s perfect if you want to create an eclectic style. Lots of options for furniture with a focus on independent designers. They collaborate directly with them with no middleman and that means fairer prices for everybody.
