The Fashion Editor’s Secret to Finding Homeware Buys for Less
For any bargain hunters such as myself, eBay has long been a mecca for hidden fashion and interior finds. It’s all about the thrill of the chase: There’s the tantalising possibility of another gem to be discovered on every new page you scroll through. I honestly didn’t think there was any corner of the site that I hadn’t uncovered, but it turns out, I was wrong. Oh hey, homeware outlet.
Packed full of all your favourite homeware brands (including Made.com, Swoon and Ercol) for less, this really is an interiors lover’s paradise. Recently, I’ve been looking for a new chair for my bedroom, and after just a quick scroll, I found countless options, from Made.com’s cult Cecil armchair in a lovely shade of burnt orange to Swoon’s cosy green Kalmar chair. Alongside these hero buys, I found the platform particularly useful for mid-century–inspired wooden furniture, which is right up my street. This Ercol coffee table will add a retro twist to your living room set-up. Meanwhile, OKA’s dining table packs plenty of drama with its metal inlay details. And there’s plenty more where these came from. But you need to see it to believe it, right? Don’t just take my word for it. To save you some time, I’ve scrolled through the latest items in eBay’s interiors outlet and created a definitive edit of pieces I would happily have in my home. Scroll down to see and shop my picks.
