Just like the best and most advanced technologies often depend on, whether people use them for good or evil, Instagram is a handy tool that serves a much larger purpose than trolling ex-boyfriends. Just last night, while scrolling through Instagram, I ended up in a deep spiral of discovery that ended with me following about 100 talented designers and furniture makers I wish I'd already known about—raise your hand if it's ever happened to you, too. There's no denying that if Instagram can serve as marketing for the masses, it's also a handy tool for sourcing interesting products from smaller makers, local shops, and cool little-known brands.

Since we can't single-handedly comb Instagram for the coolest décor accounts (but trust that we do try), we turned to our loyal followers to share their favorite décor stores to follow. We weren't disappointed: ahead, a handful of shops and makers from all over the U.S. left us wanting to entirely redecorate. Trust us—you'll want to know about these brands and creators before everybody else.

Asa Pingree

Asa Pingree Pilar Lounge Chair $2700

We were smitten when we discovered Asa Pingree, a Brooklyn-based furniture designer. Recommended by @brooklynsmith, the collection comprises simple, beautifully made pieces you'll want to keep for a lifetime.

@SaraBlankenship suggested Coveted Home, a Kansas City blog and shop that also sells a collection of furniture, accessories and vintage finds online.

We were positively charmed by M.Naeve's beautiful selection after @mattercreative recommended it to us. Owned by designer Margaret Naeve Parker in Houston, Texas, the eponymous store also lives on 1stdibs.

The Citizenry

The Citizenry Aldama Chair $775

Recommended by @beccaquandt, The Citizenry is a one-stop shop for all things worldly (and ethically sourced).

MONC XIII

Confession: We did know about MONC XIII before, but when @the_lud recommended it, we just had to reiterate how insanely chic this Sag Harbor, New York, store is.

Croft House

Croft House Spaulding Dining Chair $950
Shop

@EnergyRemodelingInc was just as big a fan of Croft House as we are. The L.A.-based design studio specializes in expertly crafted, locally manufactured furniture in laid-back California style.

Sazerac Stitches

Sazerac Stitches Tchoup-10 Chandelier $1800

@PrettyGreenDoor recommended Sazerac Stitches for its linear, midcentury-inspired Italian light fixtures and globe pendants. With lighting starting at just $55, we see why it's a handy resource.

Dear Keaton

Dear Keaton Diamond Rattan Chair $290

"Resort living, every day" is Dear Keaton's motto—and one we should frankly all abide by. Founder @chris_hutcheson suggested the brand for its mix of tasseled pillows and rattan furniture. Visit if you want your home to feel like a Harbour Island bungalow.
