For centuries, artists and designers had to go to great lengths to get their work seen by the public. They’d set up tables and carts in the town square where they’d try to entice the public to buy their products. Or, they’d travel from gallery to gallery with their work under their arm, hoping that a dealer might be interested in the work.
Even worse, the people who consume these objects had to go out and physically buy these things, walking from shop to shop until they found something they liked.
Not anymore. With Etsy, selling and buying art and design products is easier than ever.
We’ve put this article together to show off some of the best Etsy shops we’ve come across. This is our way of celebrating the amazing, 21st-century marketplace that is Etsy.com
This platform attracts buyers and makers from all over the world who are united by a love of finely-crafted goods. And, if you’re a home decor connoisseur, you should have it bookmarked.
Whether you’re looking for vintage furniture, ceramic vases, hand-stitched rugs, or even artisanal cleaning products, Etsy has everything you need for your home.
Here are a few of the best Etsy shops we’ve found for home decor products.
KARVED Bend Wall-Mounted Liquor Cabinet
HouseVH specializes in wall-mounted pieces that double as both artworks and functional objects. Their cabinet units, for example, feature finely carved designed on the exterior face but contain shelving on the inside. Any midcentury furniture enthusiast will love their space-saving decor.
Danish Teak Nightstand End Table
OtherTimesVintage traffics in secondhand vintage furniture. Their catalog is AMAZING and should impress any fan of midcentury furniture.
This 1950’s nightstand end table, for example, is a prime example of the modestly gorgeous furniture that came out of the mid-20th century. Typically, OtherTimes only has one of each piece, so make sure to grab it before someone else does!
Modern Square Geometric Drawer Knob
Who doesn’t love quirky, unique drawer knobs? Isn’t that the reason we all fell in love with Anthropologie?
Well, if you’re a fan of Anthro, you’ve got to check out the DaRosa Creations Etsy shop. They specialize in fun drawer knobs that will help you customize every drawer in your house.
We’re huge fans of their selection of modern geometric drawer knobs. Typically, drawer knobs are round. But, DeRosa has a huge catalog of squares, rectangles, triangles, and other weirdly-shaped knobs!
