The Best Women-Owned Design and Home Décor Brands

Whether you are redesigning your home, love discovering new houseware products, or simply looking for inspiration, we have curated a collection of women-owned brands you

will love!


Shopping at big box or big name brand stores may be convenient, but it lends itself to being like everyone else. Instead, seek out something new and support women-owned brands when you can.

HOUZZ

Houzz is THE Destination for Home Design. Whether you are looking for inspiration, advice from experts, or where to buy home decor products or building materials, Houzz has it all. They now even have their own mini Home Improvement network- Houzz TV. Where you can watch remodeling segments or learn how to take on a DYI project. Adi Tatarko co-founded Houzz in 2009 after she and her husband had trouble finding ideas for remodeling their home. Houzz attracts 40 million users a month and features over 2.3 million home design pros from 15 different countries.


RUGGABLE

I am obsessed with Ruggable! Machine washable rugs that are stylish and durable! Jeneva Bell set out to create a rug you could wash as easily as bedding or blankets after her dog accidentally ruined one of her rugs. After many years of trial and error, she created and patented a 2-piece rug system.They offer various fabrics from chenille to jute to outdoor rugs in a vast assortment of colors and designs and in a variety of sizes to accommodate every space and style preference. Life-changing is all I can say!




OUR PLACE

This is probably the most thoughtfully-designed, money-saving, space-saving, functional, yet stylish cookware you can buy! The Always Pan is a Do-It-All wonder, that has been designed to replace 8 traditional pieces of cookware, and has a built-in spoon rest- genius, it's a wonder no one has thought of that before! Co-founder Shiza Shahid, a Pakistani immigrant and the co-founder and former CEO of the Malala Fund, was searching for a better kitchen pan that could do more. Thus, the Always Pan was created.

FIVE TWO

What do you get when you take many decades of cooking know-how from two culinary masters and pair it with opinions and feedback from thousands of home-cook enthusiasts?

Five-Two, the product line for kitchen, home, and life by Food52 founders Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs. These are two of my favorites items; the beautiful artisan teak wooden spoons and the must have- Air-tight Silicone Lids!




STASHER

I am obsessed with Stasher bags! You can use them for just about anything, from on-the-go snacks to leftovers in the freezer to toiletries for travel and so much more.

Founded by Kat Nouri, Stasher bags are The Answer to ditching single-use plastic zip bags!! On a mission to reduce her family's plastic baggie usage, and with a background in designing and developing silicone textiles, Kat produced the world's first patented, self-sealing platinum silicone storage bag. They are a mission-led brand so a portion of every Stasher sale goes to nonprofits Surfrider and 5 Gyers, which are dedicated to preserving and rehabilitating our oceans. You can feel good knowing you are doing good by buying and using Stasher bags!


MINTED

When you think of Minted, you probably think of ordering your holiday cards, but the company founded by Mariam Naficy has so much more these days — including TEXTILES! From lampshades to curtains to table linens, the textiles are designed by a community of independent artists from around the world (you can see each artist's bio) and then produced by Minted for you! And if shopping for table linens, once you select your print, you can order the entire matching set, from napkins to placemats and tablecloths.



FOOD52

How much do I love Food52... let me count the ways! They are the ultimate resource of home-cooks but Founders Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, have also have a curated collection of home goods, including furniture, lighting, outdoor, and textiles.

Some of my favorites are: the stunning Handcrafted Metal Fruit Bowls (from $54), the Nolan Iconic Leather Sling Chair ($900), and if you're headed to the beach this month, this Sun Shelter Pop-Up Tent ($65) is a must!




LULU AND GEORGIA

This is Home Decor for the Style-Obsessed! Sara Sugarman, the Founder of Lulu and Georgia, has created a Fabulous online furniture and home store. She and her team design and curate the best and latest in interior design to make all your Pinterest dream rooms a reality. You definitely need to bookmark this site for your next design project.


JENNI KAYNE

Jenni Kayne is best known for her cult-like following shoes but has grown to become the ultimate California lifestyle brand. And now the stylish influencer is creating the perfect home aesthetics- from solid wood furniture to textiles and tabletop- all high-quality and timeless.



SERENA & LILY

Famous for their sunny California style, Serena & Lily was founded by Serena Dugan and Lily Kanter in 2003 with what began as a successful design collaboration for a baby nursery collection. Since then, they have grown into a wildly successful home lifestyle brand featuring gorgeous furniture, textiles, light fixtures, home accessories, and now Design Studio locations across the country.

THE CITIZENRY

The Citizenry is the cool place for unique, beautiful artisan-made accent pieces that are sustainably and ethically sourced and sold in a fair-trade environment. Founders Carly Nance and Rachel Bentley believe our homes deserve designs with a soul, a story, and a purpose. A socially conscious brand, they top it off by giving back 10% to the artisan communities that have created their beautiful products.



THE WHITE COMPANY

Chrissie Rucker had a vision to create a company specializing in stylish, white homeware, combining the highest quality with affordable prices- and that she did! I discovered The White Company 15 years ago when I was on a hunt for crisp white percale sheets- that didn't cost a small fortune. I was thrilled with the quality and price and have remained a customer since. Over the years, they have expanded their collection from beautiful linens to include European stoneware, bone china and elegant home decor but one thing that has remained- exquisite taste and very affordable prices!

They are Having a WHITE SALE now so check it out!


BOLL & BRANCH

Why support Boll & Branch? Because organic isn't a trendy marketing word for founders Missy and Scott Tannen; it is the non-negotiable foundation for their business. Why? Because 100% organic cotton makes for a better life for the people who grow it and makes a better product for the people who use it. It also saves 90% of the water used in conventional farming methods and pays premiums to those who plant, ensuring that the farmers remain debt-free.Because of their standards, they are the first manufacturer of linens to be Fair Trade Certified™.
