Why is Etsy a good place to shop if you live in a small space?

Custom sizing

You can’t go to John Lewis and say ‘I love this teak desk but any chance you can shave off  a couple of inches from both ends for me, it won’t quite fit in my house.’ But you absolutely can do that on Etsy. The majority of sellers will make to order, so if you have specific measurements, they can usually accommodate. 

Find something unique

The range of apartment size or small space furniture available from major retailers is a little limited (albeit improving), which means the chances of you having the same sofa, rug, bookshelves and coffee table as your friends are pretty high. On Etsy you are bound to find something special and unique that hasn’t already been plastered all over instagram.

Support the independents

Etsy is a great place to discover up and coming brands. There are hundreds of sellers creating beautiful pieces of furniture from all over the globe.
