Have you ever browsed through Designers Portfolio and thought to yourself, “I love these rooms, but where can I find that lamp? My local Target just doesn’t carry things like that!” Well fret no longer Etsy is here to rescue you from the mundane world of big-box retailers. If you’re not familiar with Etsy here’s how they describe themselves.

Big_Etsy_Logo_SmallOur mission is to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers. Our vision is to build a new economy and present a better choice:
Buy, Sell, and Live Handmade.

This week Etsy featured several rooms from HGTV’s Designer’s Portfolio in their Get The Look: Decor series. Taking inspiration from a designer’s room, Etsy has hand-selected some amazing vintage furniture and handmade decor accents. Have a modern living room? Check out these Stacked Plywood Nesting End Tables. Got a contemporary kitchen? These one-of-a-kind Shade Pendants are a must! For more modern inspiration, check out all of Etsy’s selections.

We’re already feeling the Etsy love in the comments area. Are you an Etsy user? Do you have your own Etsy shop? Let us know!

    I don't have cable, but do watch HGTV when I am staying somewhere that does. Love your design shows. If you are in the market for raku pottery stop by http://www.wildweeds.etsy.com Thanks for melding two great things together!

  4. HGTV is a staple in my house. I absolutely adore the wonderful variety of the decorator shows. I do sell on Etsy and just might have the vintage piece to add that finishing touch, that's missing.

  8. We love HGTV and get much inspiration for the remodeling of our old farm house from the how to features. Teaming with Etsy and the handmade community will be a real plus for those of us who desire to work from home and revive this economy one set of crafting hands at a time.

    Finally!!! i've been in love with both Etsy & HGTV for many years…even have written about HGTV in my blog describing my disappointment that I didn't win the Sonoma Dream House…still waiting on a recount.
    Even displayed my messy art studio in hopes the "HGTV fairy" might grant me a wish to revamp it (hint, hint!).

    I'll be waiting for you "HGTV fairy" at:
