7 Etsy Shops For Design Enthusiasts

Discover the best artisans and curators on Etsy with our guide to the top shops for every category of home. Whether you’re sourcing modern ceramics, antique textiles, or Scandinavian-inspired accents, these seven Etsy sellers are the go-to experts for high-quality, distinctive pieces to elevate your space with sophistication and time-worn character.

Since its founding in 2005, Etsy has fundamentally changed the way we shop. The platform is a connection point to small makers and curators, allowing us to fill our homes with handmade pieces and found objects from across the world. Etsy has always been a haven for design enthusiasts, but over the last several years, it’s really become a one-stop-shop for nearly every category of home. Lighting, art, rugs, furnishings—the works. There’s often some hesitation around sourcing from Etsy, particularly sourcing vintage, but that’s where it helps to do your homework. We’re spotlighting seven Etsy sellers who excel in their given specialty, demonstrating their artistry and expertise time and time again.

For One-of-a-Kind Lighting

Shop: Mullan Lighting

Specialty: Custom light fixtures, handmade in Ireland

As seen in The Austin Tudor sky loft, Mullan Lighting has been a longtime favorite in the design community. Shoppers will find over 600 customizable fixtures, with wall lights and pendant lights making up the vast majority of the inventory. While by no means a small maker, Mullan Lighting proudly handcrafts all their fixtures from their facility in Ireland. Among shop favorites is The Elle Picture Light in antique brass, featured below.
