19 best Etsy shops, as picked by interior designers

Online marketplace Etsy.com is a brilliant resource for one of a kind, vintage and handmade items. However, with innumerable amounts of shops offering ‘bestsellers’ and ‘must haves’, it can be daunting to know where to begin. Yes, there is pleasure to be found in the trawling, but it’s nice to take the guesswork out of things too. In light of this, we asked some of our favourite interior designers to open up their little black books of top Etsy sellers and point us in the right direction.

What are good things to buy on Etsy?

The shops on Etsy often sell a more curated edit of pieces than you find on Ebay, so it can be easier to sniff out good deals. It’s a brilliant resource for decorative pieces, like vintage textiles or hand-turned lamps so look for those special accents. If you’re not sure where to start, we have some wonderful guides on how to buy rugs on Etsy, as well as buying art on Etsy and how to buy lighting on Etsy. 

What are some popular Etsy shops?

Many of the interior designers on our pages are also huge Etsy fans and no one has a better nose for a bargain or a hidden gem than a designer on a budget.

These designers have haunted Etsy’s infinite selection of store fronts, bouncing from shop owner to small business to find our readers the absolute best Etsy shops. Below, you’ll find their top Etsy shops for furniture, accessories, textiles and more.
