Top online shops that do the heavy lifting for you.

We just wrote about him in our March/April issue, but we can’t get enough of the unique home items curated by Los Angeles–based designer Ryan Saghian. From abstract works of art to adorn our walls to L.A.-specific wallpaper to spruce up small spaces, his curated site of eclectic finds has something for every room and is constantly updated with an endless array of fabulous finds.

One step into the expansive Santa Ynez General brick and mortar up north, and we instantly fell in love with everything owners Pearson McGee and Spencer Turnbull source from makers near (like L.A.-based Style Union Home) and far (like Paris-based, Scandinavian-inspired Eldvarm). Though the Central Coast isn’t a tough trek, there’s nothing like shopping for ceramics by Cym Warkov, oxidized oak ladders from Lostine, and cozy blankets from Blacksaw from the comfort of your sofa.

The new West Hollywood showroom is a fantastic source for inspiration, but should you find the options overwhelming—or you’re just seeking inspiration from a broader catalog—the e-comm site for Soho Home is sure to delight. Its elegant barware is always a favorite, but don’t miss the new rug collection, inspired by houses around the world.

Instead of relying on a warehouse, global e-comm giant Farfetch teams up with boutiques around the world to source its range of fashionable items. When you’re done adding anything from the latest Frame denim to vintage Hermès bags to your cart, move on to the home items and explore the range of everything from Alexandra Llewellyn backgammon sets and sculptures from KAWS to Brunello Cucinelli ceramics and Dolce & Gabbana cotton towels.

Whether you gravitate toward Baies or Feu de Bois, any Diptyque candle is elevated when placed inside one of the iconic French brand’s glass candle holders—just some of the expanded offerings beyond fragrances. The label is also a terrific source for elevated throws, graphic wallpaper, tabletop wares, and even office accessories.

You may have come across its boutiques in Newport Beach, Napa Valley, or Playa Vista and fallen in love with the curated collection of jewelry, one-of-a-kind artworks, and ceramics. When you can’t make the drive, shop the Alchemy Works website for the latest from Flamingo Estate, Isabel Halley, Earl Home, Sandoval, and more.

Based in Los Angeles but operating exclusively online, Lulu and Georgia won us over with its range of stylish home furnishings—from sofas in every size and shape to case goods and soft goods and even one-off vintage items—and then with its generous return policy and reasonable prices. Browse through the site for high-quality wares or just to absorb design inspiration.

Sometimes you need an elegant cake stand that matches the china you already own. Other times, you need the perfect non-glass drinkware for enjoying cocktails poolside. Then, there are the times when you need that perfect beach chair, or watering can, or eye-catching serving set. There’s hardly an occasion involving the home that Hudson Grace doesn’t have an item for.

Not everyone has the time, patience, and packing skills to bring home artisanal crafts found on vacation in Mexico. Should “overflow duffel” not be in your vocabulary, two of Mexico’s best sources for hand-picked ceramics, textiles, and accessories made by artisans across the country have established e-comm sites. Check out Evoke the Spirit for trademark rope wall hangings, pom-poms, and hand-woven skulls, and Nakawe Trading for vegetable-dyed blankets, woven rugs, Mexican clay pottery, and more.
