The Goodhood Store has been selling clothing and accessories for men and women since '07 but this year saw the launch of their Life Store, stocked with fresh and funky goods to outfit the home. The folks behind The Goodhood Store set out to be the destination for design in London's East End. Luckily for those of us who don't get the UK often (or ... ever) they also have a great web shop.
TRNK New York co-founders Tariq Dixon and Nick Nemechek got their first taste for selling vintage finds via the Apartment Therapy Classifieds. With their collective eye for quality pieces and good design, we took notice of their corner of the Classifieds almost immediately. They recently launched their own e-commerce site and, not surprisingly, it's stocked full of amazing one-of-a-kind vintage pieces.
Mantiques Modern transports you to another time when brass and metal were materials of choice. At every glance there are hidden gems in their vast Manhattan gallery. From restored airplane engines as coffee tables to vintage European jewelry, these guys have it all. Their attention to detail, and an eye for quality, puts their collection at the forefront of antique dealers in New York.
We often say that you should stick with neutral furniture and then drop in color with accessories. We're also fans of swapping out throw pillows and blankets to freshen up a home. If you stick with these maxims, you'll definitely want to check out Pyar & Co.'s colorful pillows and throws sourced from fair trade laborers in India.
Claire Kier, the owner of UK webshop Idyll Home, has a knack for curating a collection of awesome organic modern goods for the home. Based in Staffordshire, Idyll Home's offerings allow you to transfer a little bit of that English countryside charm to your own home, no matter where that may be.
For those of us who frequently redecorate, a service like Viyet could come in very handy. The New York based service picks up your furniture, lists it in their webshop and, if it sells, you get 50% of it. No fuss, no muss.
Where would we be without a little ingenuity? For one thing, we wouldn't have new products like RD Shady, a line of interchangeable lampshade covers out of Olympia, Washington. Based on the concept that it should be as easy to update a lamp as it is a throw pillow, these clever covers zip on and off in jiffy.
You wouldn't expect a company named Lamps.com to have a 100 year history and yet it does. What started as Harry Horn Electric Supply in 1914, a business that thrived for more than 80 years and three generations, later morphed into Arch Street Lighting, an upscale lighting showroom. Flash forward 20 more years and it was time for the Philadelphia lighting stalwart to go online. And Lamps.com was born.
