As an interior designer, I am not always shopping “to the trade” resources. Often I do specify retail shopping sources for my clients to make their own purchases. So it is important for me to know the best local retail stores (some of which also offer shopping online) that can provide me with a lot of options for furniture and home goods for my clients.  While I like to check out big purchases in person, to ensure the quality is what I am looking for, there are many great items for the home that can be found online.  Since February is the month dedicated to LOVE, I’ve created a list of some of the retail shopping resources I love, where you can find stylish and affordable goods.

1. Z Gallerie – Head here to shop for glamorous, trendy, colorful or metallic looking décor.

3. Williams Sonoma – I’m a sucker for gadgets, so I often find myself shopping here for kitchen goodies. There is also a Williams Sonoma HOME that I love…but for cookware to cutlery, linens to small appliances, and some yummy ingredients in store, you can easily find many of your kitchen needs at their original brand.

4. West Elm – This chain retailer is under the Williams Sonoma brand also – and is always on trend.  They offer a huge selection of modern furniture and home décor featuring designs that are clean, with straight lines and appealing to both males & females.
