Interior Designer: Voila
For Dark and Sleek Nordic Designs: Grey & Sanders
Expect an emphasis on darker finishes and hues at Grey and Sanders. Specialising in various solid wood (live edge, walnut, pecan) furniture, the label aims to bring quality, timbered pieces at an accessible price point. With clean, classic lines reminiscent of mid-modern century designs, we love that the brand’s website has a cool 360-degree function for users to check out every piece at any angle.
For Scandinavian Basics: PRIMERO
Featuring the hallmarks of Scandinavian design (clean, simple lines with an equal dose of wood), PRIMERO offers an entire range of designer-inspired furnishings at a surprisingly affordable price. From dining tables, chairs to bed frames and sofas, homeowners can also get to enjoy a peace of mind from their purchase, thanks to PRIMERO’s generous 30-day returns and 1 year warranty.
For Jungalow-Style Furnishings: Elements Concept
Get that laid-back, Jungalow vibe at home without making a soul trip to Bali! Hailing from Indonesia, Elements Concept’s range of teak and rattan furniture is a perfect fit for indoor and outdoor spaces. Each piece is handcrafted by local artisans in the brand’s workshop (or from home), and feature rustic designs in elegant, rounded shapes. The best part? These stylish fittings (which have been featured on the likes of Vogue) don’t cost and arm or a leg. Prices start from $125 for a stool, and $104 for a side table.
For Modern-Contemporary Essentials (With An Industrial Slant): Prestige Affairs
Love the gritty industrial look, but hate looking like you live in a junkyard or abandoned factory? Fret not; balancing the right mix of rustic edginess and polished, modern lines, Prestige Affairs brings an array of on-trend furnishings – without the designer price tag. Working directly with manufacturers, the label prides itself in providing significant savings on quality, furniture made a variety of materials, including solid acacia and pine wood.
For Pretty, Scandi/Mod Pieces (For Adults and Kids): 3LittlePicks
The only time you can get away with cutesy stuff (that your other half probably won’t approve)? When you’re decorating your baby/kid’s bedroom! And, we think this online store might just be the bane of your decorating fantasies – stocked with gorgeous,
insta-worthy children’s furniture, accents and toys, 3LittlePicks also offers a selection of trendy, adult-sized chairs, tables and knick knacks too - so you can also secretly squeeze in some of that ‘cute’ into your space.

For Bright, Eclectic Standouts: Homlab
Apple green, cherry red – how about a dash of glitzy gold and precious pinks? Bold (but never brash), the pickings from online store Homlab might tempt even the most serious minimalists to go all out with colour, shape and pattern. Think mesh-wire stools, bamboo-framed glass tables and even gorgeous bone-inlaid nightstands – all at a surprisingly affordable price.
