Etsy Shops You And Your Apartment Will Love
Etsy is a wonderful site where artists and entrepreneurs can sell their unique, hand-crafted products or vintage finds from around the world! With literally millions of Etsy shops to sort through, it can feel more like a chore than a fun shopping spree to purchase from the online marketplace. That’s why we did the heavy lifting work for you!
Below, we’ve rounded up a selection of shops specializing in home furnishings that are perfect for adding a special touch to your home. This will help you add unique flare to your NYC home, no matter if you’re going for an Upper East Side preppy vibe or Westside funky vibe!
For Rugs: Old New House
A really amazing rug can make or break a room, so this is an area it pays to spend a little extra money. If you’re looking for something truly unique, skip ABC Carpet in Downtown Manhattan, and click on over to the Etsy shop Old New House, which features “original rugs for the inspired home”. Started in 2010 by husband and wife team Melissa and Dave (also New Yorkers!), they specialize in semi-antique rugs, that are truly one of a kind. They currently have over 2,000 items for sale in their shop (with hundreds of positive customer reviews), making this big investment decision one you can feel secure about.
Good to Know: They offer a 3-day return policy on their items, in case the piece just doesn’t vibe with your space.
For Pillows: PopOColor
Throw pillows are a great starter way to refresh your space for a few reasons. They’re a relatively small purchase on the grand scheme of home design (much less than a piece of furniture, both in space and cost!) This makes it easy to try something new without the fear of hating it in a few months. And even if you do, you can always choose to swap your pillows out seasonally, since they’re so easy to store (just keep the inserts and fold up the cases, putting them into your linen closet until next summer/fall/winter/spring!)
We love the diversity of options available at PopOColor. The Etsy shop has been live since 2011, and hails from Boston by designer Katie Corrigan. She believes “pillows are the jewelry of a room”, and with over 500 current designs to choose from, there’ss surely something to fit in with your personal style. Even if you can’t find your exact dream pillow, just message her, as she’s happy to take custom orders (and even search for your dream fabric for you–this is her specialty!)
Good to Know: There’s a selection of pillows at 50% off, which is a steal of a way to freshen up your living space, or even your outdoor balcony furniture if you’re at a Glenwood residence with outdoor space, such as The Bamford.
Upscale Apartments at The BamfordThere’s no shortage of indoor space for socializing, working out, or relaxing in luxury at The Bamford. Find your perfect unit with us today.
For Furniture: VintageRefinedDecor
If you’re looking for a piece of furniture to complete a room, say a set of drawers for your new nursery, a desk for your home office, a side table to complete your master suite, or chairs for your dining room, look no further than VintageRefinedDecor. Based out of Chicago by Ashley Harding, we’re confident you’ll love this shop as much as we do for the following reasons. Ashley spends her time sourcing high quality, vintage furniture, which she then brings to her studio and perfects. This could mean staining it a color to meet your decor needs, or putting a fresh coat of navy paint on to fit in with your nautical themed living room, or even adding fun knobs for a hint of whimsy. Whatever the case, each piece is finished with love, and a personalization of your choosing.
Good to Know: Did you just inherit old furniture from your grandparents? Get in touch, as Ashley also takes pieces already in your possession and will finish them off to your liking.
