Design Finds (for Less)!

One of my close girlfriends always jokes that she'll never understand my love for Anthropologie. She actually saw this duster in the store being sold for $68, and snapped a picture of it to send to me.  "They can't be serious.  A cleaning product that can be bought for under $10 at the hardware store is retailing for $68 at Anthro?!"  I understand her point.  Some of the items are a bit ridiculous, but there's no store I'd rather wander through.  I remember studying the company in business school and learning that the store was purposely set up to feel like a treasure hunt.  Among the freestanding racks of clothing are small tables and niches with smaller items (i.e. impulse purchases) that allow your eyes to take a visual break.  While I love their clothing, I've always been drawn to their bedding, bath and furniture. While typically very pricey, I was surprised to come across these stunning lucite + brass bar carts for $698:

I thought my bar cart was a steal, and I still had to spray paint it to get it to be the shade of gold I wanted.  If I could do it over, I'd definitely go with one of the styles above because I love the lucite details.  Any time I find a good deal online, I always want to share it with you. It's rare that I find a beautiful furniture item or art piece that is somewhat affordable without feeling over-done or cheap, but it is possible.  Here are a few of my current favorites:

A few of my go-tos for chic art, lighting, and furniture:

Minted Art (fab photography and art for less, lots of framing options)

One Kings Lane (for unique furniture, accessories, and lighting)

domino (a great source AND a favorite magazine)

cb2 (modern, affordable furniture perfect for small spaces)

Etsy (the perfect place to get that custom, designer look for less)

Do you have a favorite online shop I failed to mention? Let me know, because I'm always out to discover new sources!
