After stumbling upon ParkStudioLA, I rediscovered Etsy and fell down a rabbit hole of endless treasure troves. Here is the low-down of the best Etsy shops I discovered recently.
I discovered Katy Skelton at High Point Market last October and fell in love with her mid-century marble and brass sensibilities. Based out of Brooklyn, Katy creates beautiful products designed with social responsibility in mind. I love her Admiral’s Tray, and her collection of brass hairpin side tables makes me weak in the knees.
I can’t remember how I stumbled upon ParkStudioLA‘s Etsy shop, but I remember obsessively searching for the chandelier that graced the ceilings of the Marlton Hotel‘s lobby and restaurant Margaux, after having dinner there a couple of months ago. I was in love with the stark contrast between the minimal modern chandelier against the over-ornate ceilings. Then I found it: the Cotati Chandelier in all its glory.
Pink Rug Co. specializes in hand-selected vintage Moroccan rugs. From the understated traditional black and white Beni Ourain rugs to the uber-colorful Boucherouite rugs (they’re like an acid trip on your floors—and I mean that in the best possible way), their Moroccan rugs collection is truly second to none.
A few years ago, LA-based Croft House founder Riley Rea refurbished an old desk he found on Craigslist for his workspace. It didn’t fit quite right, so he sold the desk on Craigslist for 5x the price. He followed the same method a few more times and when demand grew, he started replicating vintage furniture with reclaimed local wood. Croft House now specializes in modern reclaimed wood furniture and has even expanded to upholstery.
506070 is a London-based shop that specializes in (you guessed it) 50s, 60s and 70s hand-selected vintage furniture and decorative items. With a keen eye for design and a specialty in mid-century Scandinavian products, owner Franck London has curated a selection of pieces that is second to none on Etsy; from coveted Arne Norell safari chairs to Borge Mogensen cabinets. And fear not the UK address, 506070 ships worldwide.
I’ve you’ve seen my One Room Challenge reveal, you might have noticed that I essentially have the same indigo batik pillows as the one featured above, which makes BohoPillow an obvious choice. Their specialty: to turn vintage global and ethnic textiles into pillows. Here you’ll find Hmong, Batik, Indigo, Mudcloth and wedding blanket textiles from China, Guatemala, Morocco and more.
