    Interior designers purchase specific items for their client's homes or offices. Some of the "must-have" pieces needed to furnish a home include window treatments like curtains, drapes, and shades; mirrors; TV screens mounted on walls; furniture pieces like sofas, chairs, beds; entertainment centers; desks with chairs on either side of them; wall hangings including pictures or clocks or other decorative objects that can be moved around to change an area's look conveniently. Design stores are not really stores but rather showrooms where people come in and out just to browse around without having to buy anything.

    Interior designers are constantly looking for new ways to merge toughness with beauty. As far as choosing homes or decorating, they know what will work together because their job is capturing the aesthetic vision of others. It's not about picking up a bunch of things that "look pretty" rather it's about selecting colors, textures and patterns that complement each other to help create a particular type of mood. New styles might incorporate the sleekness of metal or black furniture with rough hewn timber or shingles on top to offer contrasting materials without ever being too matchy-matchy.

    Jos A Bank is a national chain that carries high quality suits at low prices. It has plenty of coats, slacks, shirts and shoes. Jos A Bank is my favorite place to buy clothes for work - I always have a hard time finding something in one shot when I go to say, Macy's or Sears or the Gap- but you can find everything in Jos A Bank with relative ease. For everything else they carry - rugs, furniture, upholstery fabric etc.. look on Ebay - there are some great people selling interior design type stuff that you can order directly from their listing without an intermediary taking their cut across the board.

    There's a really wide range of styles and clientele among designers, so it can be tough to pinpoint a specific place. Some do the bulk of their work at discount stores or online retailers then have one or two pieces that have been ordered from a specialty store nearby. Others may spend the majority of their time scouting out treasures in antique shops within driving distance. For many designers, having an elements board on Pinterest is also a great tool because you can browse through posts from other people, make comments on designs you like, and post your own pins for others to look at. If there was one thing I could recommend though? It would be Houzz!

    As interior designers, we shop everywhere. We need to know what you, the client, like and what your budget is in order to make the best suggestion. From boutiques with unique one-of-a-kind pieces to chain furniture stores, you'll find us shopping all over town! One of the most exciting elements for an interior designer is sourcing materials from all over the world. I remember walking into stores in Morocco and seeing gorgeous textiles that no one else was selling; Italy gave me access to marble quarries; Hong Kong had near limitless possibility with both building materials and paints - it never gets old!

    It's no surprise that interior designers are well-versed in the latest trends in home furnishings, décor and surfaces. What is surprising is that there are plenty of great sources for inspiration - even if you're not a designer. Here are our favorite picks for where interior designers love to shop! The Design Center at Chelsea Market - located on the lower level near the Food Network studios, this is a bustling marketplace with shops ranging from purveyors of vintage fabrics and furniture to vendors of eco-friendly housewares. A recent project by the Design Collective features handcrafts from Nepal arranged throughout The Olive Vault section on Bleecker Street.
