New year, new decor? We’ve trawled the net and found what we believe to be Australia’s best online homewares stores, so you can freshen up your decor from the comfort of your own living room. From Scandinavian to Industrial Chic, these sites have every style, and budget, covered.
Scout House sources its wares from all over the world, with its founder Orlando Mesiti carefully curating an eclectic collection of goods. From made-to-order pieces to vintage finds, there is a heavy focus on industrial chic.
It’s a great place to pick up a unique yet practical gift or a talking piece for your own home. Scout House’s famous customisable wrought iron beds make a playful focal piece that will liven up any bedroom.
Another online retailer committed to bringing homewares from around the world into Australian homes, Sage and Clare specialise in linens and textiles with a bohemian feel.
Their linen doona covers are exquisite, hand dyed in unexpected colours like tobacco and moss. Be sure to browse their beautiful handcrafted throw pillows, made in lush and tactile materials, to add texture to your bed or lounge.
A rattan and cane lover’s paradise, Family Love Tree has the wares for those wanting a bohemian coastal vibe. If you can name it, the team at Family Love Tree have made it in cane – beds, lounges, occasional chairs, planters, coffee tables and even desks.
The founder’s desire to break design rules is evident in the vivid colours and patterns featured throughout their collection – from candy pink to swirling paisley. They also stock an impressive array of out-there homewares – a pink velvet cushion with tiger motif gets an honourable mention.
This online retailer isn’t for the design shy, as every piece is a statement piece.
No need to travel to the famed Jumbled shop front in Orange NSW to browse their beautiful homewares and one-off paintings – everything Jumbled has to offer can be purchased online.
The team behind Jumbled are extremely passionate about homewares, even jetting off to Morocco each year to source products. The store is an extension of their own style, vowing only to stock an item if it “makes their hearts sing”.
Another plus: the majority of brands they stock are Australian. This all adds up to a captivating mix of wares, each item as lust-worthy as the next.
Be warned: a visit to Jumbled Online usually ends in a purchase.
For those who have caught the Scandinavian bug, look no further than Clickon.com.au. Here you’ll find beautifully-crafted timber furniture and quirky, minimalist homewares.
They also boast an impressive art collection, showcasing artists from all over the globe. This Scandi hub is on the pricier side, but the perfect place to source those forever pieces.
These days Kmart has somewhat of a cult following – Australians are going wild for their super affordable, on-trend homewares. Kmart is great for photo frames and other decorative pieces – you can pick up a chic vase for as little as $5 and a throw cushion for not much more.
Tackling the sheer number of Kmart customers can be a little daunting at times, so luckily the majority of stock is available online.
It’s worth noting: if you’re looking to nab one of their highly-anticipated items, you’ll likely have to pop down to the nearest store and brave the crowds.
