I'm feeling lazy tonight, so here is just a list of websites with interesting furniture and homewares if you're kind of tired the Pottery Barn or Ikea options.
Rose and Radish - modern, simple, clean, with a little bit of weird (bowl with a skull?).
Orla Kiely - cute prints, as viewed in the post below.
BrocadeHome - girly, Rococo, think Marie Antoinette.
CB2 - modern, smart, hip (sister company of Crate and Barrel).
West Elm - modern (clearly I can't think of any other ways to describe these things) and cool.
