Shopper's Guide

Tired of the same old product shots from megastores like West Elm, Crate & Barrel, and IKEA? If you're a catalog hound, you can easily get your fix by surfing web photos — especially if you know some lesser-known places to look.

  1. Bailey's Home and Garden: A British store that focuses on simple, useful and well made products, they have gorgeous photos of farmhouse-style spaces.
  2. Ferm Living: Wallpapaer companies tend to take beautiful interior photos, and Denmark-based Ferm Living does it as well — or better — than anyone.
  3. Fog Linen Work: This Japanese store carries a mix of vintage and new furniture, as well as lots of natural linens. The catalog aesthetic is minimal and beautiful.
  4. Emery & Cie: This European store has a gorgeous, color-saturated bohemian aesthetic that mixes French, Moroccan, and old-world European styles.
  5. Another Country: A a small contemporary craft furniture company based in Dorset, England, they have lovely product photos shot in English cottages and farmhouses.
  6. Kartell: Their online catalog is difficult to find and a pain to navigate, but once you're there, it's worth it. They have a HUGE archive of fun, colorful, and fashionable photos.
  7. Bisazza Mosaico: This Italian tile company is glam to the max, and their online catalog is full of breathtaking installation shots.
  8. Tine K: This Danish catalog is shot in the home of storeowner Tine, and it's a truly inspirational example of someone living in an uncluttered space furnished with high-quality pieces.
  9. Roche Bobois: From their Apartment Therapy store profile: "Browsing through the catalog pages of French sofa company Roche Bobois is sort of like flipping through Vogue — everything is unattainable, but it's totally worth a look for inspiration, especially if you're looking for gutsy ideas."
  10. Bodie and Fou: Based in London, this store is run by two sisters with an eye for inspiring European and French design. The catalog includes lots of family-friendly spaces and kids' rooms.
