Ten go-to online shopping sites

The search for perfection ends here

Home Beautiful readers are well versed at finding special pieces for their homes. Chances are you already have a trusty list of sites to trawl at night. Of course, with the world wide web being as infinite as it is, there’s always a new favourite around the corner and an old faithful waiting to be rediscovered.

In the spirit of sharing, we’ve scoured our browser histories and collated the sites we always hit first. Hopefully, next time you’re searching for a specific piece in just the right size and colour, comparing prices, or looking for something to ignite the imagination these sights will help you on your way.

Fenton & Fenton  – Looking for a rug that hits all the right notes, design your own using Fenton & Fenton’s rug builder. Your custom design will be handmade in Rajasthan by their team of skilled weavers. Be warned, though, this colourful site is brimming with one-off curious and artworks so you may end up with more than just a new rug at checkout. 

Greenhouse Interiors – Stylist extraordinaire Julia Green, has created a platform for all her favourite independent artists, makers and designers’ art and design by local talents. Most pieces are limited edition and made to order in Australia. Love! 

Country Road – Country Road is a mainstay for quality pieces with a refined edge. The collection changes seasonally but it can always be counted on for simple, androgynous designs in muted colours and natural textiles. The site is a go-to for wedding and house warning gifts and the sales are insane.

Anthropologie – When you want to nab something no-one else has, go off shore. We have Anthropologie bookmarked for bohemian treasures shipped from the USA.

Designstuff – For the ultimate conversation piece. The good people at Designstuff is our favourite marketplace for design with a story to tell, whether that be an incredible finish, unexpected function or the beautiful meaning behind a special piece.

Zakkia – The online homeware site by Swede-turned-Sydneysider Sara Lundgren brings together a love of natural materials and pure design.

Temple & Webster – Australia’s biggest and the best for hunting down a bargain, this online retailer features over 130,000 products. Many are direct from the supplier, which speeds up delivery times and keeps prices low.  

Hunting For George – Lucy Glade-Wright and Jo Harris have a thing for cool design. Their website combines their own collection of quirky furniture, textiles and accessories as well as a showcase of their favorite brands.

Norsu – A trend explosion but in a good way, Norsu is everything we are loving right this moment in a curated sea of soft colour, as demonstrated by the image at the top of this page.
