Hidden Gems: Home Furnishings Edition

It’s no news that online shopping has revolutionized the way we live, and buy things. Trouble is, sometimes it’s hard to know where to look online to find the unique, especially since retailers selling such items have been late to the web-store game. Never fear. We at The Charlotte will bring you all the hidden online gems that we’ve come across.

Here are three home stores that I doubt you know of (and if you do, wow you’re cool) that have some very unique wares on offer.

1. Canvas
A collection of ceramics, wooden objects, textiles, accessories and furniture for the home created by artisans and craftsmen from the US and abroad. It has a definite Scandinavian feel, and the styling of the images alone is worth perusing the site.

2. Mothology
Their motto is “The Science of Style” and they sell things that look old (but aren’t), all of which have a reasonable price point. Ever wonder how to get original looking accessories without hunting cool antique places that can overwhelm and make you broke? Simply shop here.

3. Room Service Home
This is a lot like Ballard Design but has a more curated collection. You can find the perfect hostess gift, desk set, or, even some clean looking furniture. I think their home office section is particularly fine, especially all the pretty folders that make organizing something you might actually want to do.

    Cate, I love this blog and really enjoy reading your posts! You’ve inspired me to finally frame all of these prints I have been collecting over the years. Any good tips on DIY cost-conscious framing tips? THANKS!
