Our Top Favorite Retailers
We have many favorite retailers when it comes to shopping for unique products. However, the two retailers we love the most are Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn. They have the same aesthetic, yet they are different in many ways as they produce unique pieces.
Let’s explore the style and aesthetic of our two favorite retailers.
Crate And Barrel
Crate and Barrel is known for creating timeless pieces as their aesthetic is classic and elegant. They have kept this consistent for a very long time and will continue to do so. However, once in a while, every brand needs a bit of change to mix things up.
That is what Crate and Barrel have done by collaborating with Leanne Ford. Her collection has completely changed the aesthetic of the brand. She has brought one-of-a-kind pieces that have texture, personality but are still timeless.
Such a design element has changed people's view of Crate and Barrel, and it has done well to attract more diverse customers. If the brand mixes its aesthetic with different designers, it can create more diverse and unique pieces that will capture many people's attention.
Crate and Barrel is a favorite among people, and it has a loyal customer base that will keep on buying from the brand. After all, who doesn’t like timeless pieces?
When anyone hears the word Pottery Barn, a rustic aesthetic instantly comes to mind. They are known for making rustic items that have soft and muted shades blended with vintage cottage décor. Their style leans towards natural, but every once in a while, they mix it up.
For example, if you don't want something too rustic, you can shop from West Elm or Pottery Barns Apartment Collection. They include many mid-century modern furniture pieces that will add a cozy yet modern vibe to your living space.
We love that Pottery Barn has always been diverse and created versatile pieces for their customers, and that is why they are loyal to the brand.
The Difference Between Pottery Barn And Crate And Barrel
While both the retailers are brilliant at creating unique pieces, they are different in many ways too. Crate and Barrel has a much wider selection that includes more décor and furniture. However, Pottery Barn only has a wider selection of home products such as apartment living, towels, and linens.
Their design and aesthetic may be similar, but they differ in terms of the range of selection. So, you may find many similar pieces when it comes to both these retailers.
Looking For More Unique Items?
As designers, we love these big stores and retailers. However, if you truly want unique products, then boutique stores are where you should shop. Items from boutique stores will help you set up your space differently than anyone else you know.
That was the idea behind Shoppe Hunter Hue. Each product on our store is timeless and curated to suit a specific style. So, if you want items that no one else has, browse through our collection now.
