Excellent design starts with quality pieces. With so many made-to-order furniture sites and stores floating around the web, it can be challenging for a newcomer to make the best selections. Luckily, that’s my specialty. In one of my most fun posts to date, I share three of my favorite stores for all things décor.
Serena & Lily
Founded by textile design specialist Serena Dugan and boutique owner Lily Kanter in 2003, this furniture line originally sought to address the lack of well-designed nursery décor. Since then, the business has expanded their now-iconic contemporary style to all rooms, boasting a vibrant and sophisticated collection of pieces including sectionals, patio work, upholstery, and even dinnerware.
Veritable veterans of the furniture industry, Jayson Home has been a mainstay of designers for almost twenty years. Their sophisticated, mature collection of both vintage and modern pieces is so carefully selected that their style remains topical even now. A bonus: Their products all carry elegant names, like the Nouvel Stool or Mariel Coffee Table, that make them unforgettable.
Specializing in dramatic, unusual pieces, Made Goods caters to designers and boutique owners with sophisticated tastes. Crafted out of intriguing materials like seashell, emerald, and hammered black iron, each piece is a fascinating and tailored work of art that is sure to command attention at any house party.
