    Minted

    This design marketplace’s gallery wall game has been winning since it first made its mark as a source of affordable fine-art prints in 2012. Now Minted has doubled down with museum-grade matting and float mounting, plus fancy metal frame options and the ability to print images full bleed. If mapping out a pretty arrangement feels overwhelming, consider MintedGallery. You can hire a stylist to pull together a complete wall grouping or an entire room scheme that’ll work with your existing furnishings. 

    MintedGallery Art Wall Service, from $79 per consultation (art not included)

  • Crane & Canopy

    Think of this California-based textile company as the Warby Parker of bedding. Owners and husband-wife duo Christopher and Karin Sun totally geek out over linens and decided to go straight to the best factories to bring customers luxury bedding for a fraction of what high-end retailers charge. New patterns are added regularly, and the site always stocks crisp hotel-style sheets and duvets.

    Custom framing at its finest, from the comfort of your couch. Upload a digital file to the website or mail in your artwork, packaged in a prepaid Framebridge tube or box. Preview your piece in 39 made-in-the-USA frames before selecting, then keep an eye out for your special delivery. On-staff designers can walk you through the entire process—the only thing they can’t do is hang the artwork for you.

  • Interior Define

    The made-to-order-sofa site may be a relatively new concept, but this Chicago-based store is nailing it. Good things take time, so if you need a couch tomorrow, don’t search here. But if you want to choose your ideal silhouette, fabric, leg style, cushion-fill and exact dimensions (down to the inch!), then, boy, does Interior Define deliver.

    Spoonflower

    Unleash your inner designer by choosing from more than 350,000 patterns to create custom wall coverings and fabrics. You can browse by tags and themes, so it’s easy to find, say, cheery butterflies for a playroom or sophisticated dots for an entryway. Everything gets printed digitally with water-based inks and dyes, including the renter-friendly peel-and-stick papers, and there’s no minimum order.

    Shopping Loom is like having a personal seamstress on call with access to pretty, to-the-trade-only fabrics. Whatever you choose—curtains, bedding, cushions or table linens—will be stitched up and sent out in one to two weeks. The best part: free shipping and competitive pricing, particularly when it comes to pillows and oversize poufs.
