Everything old is new again, at some point or another, and when it comes to home decor, some things are truly timeless. No matter which way your style fluctuates, the right vintage piece can transform your interior and make your space feel like its one of a kind. That’s precisely why we love following plenty of vintage home goods stores on Instagram.

Sorting through estate sales and antique shows may help you to find some serious steals for your home, but sometimes, it’s helpful to approach decorating with antiques with the help of a curator. Many vintage home stores don’t just curate the offerings in their shops, whether brick-and-mortar or online—they also curate their feeds to show off their own findings and deliver plenty of advice on how you can style them.

If a peacock-style rattan headboard is high up on your wish list (guilty), you’re searching for a mid-century tallboy dresser, or you’d like to snag a statement vase or accent piece, the right Instagram account can make your design dreams a reality. These 15 shops provide decorating inspiration, along with some irresistible shoppable opportunities.

With three outposts in Brooklyn, Dobbin St. Vintage Co-op is rife with velvet couches, lush rugs, and offbeat wall hangings. A favorite of several Domino editors, it’s one of the best places for New York maximalists to find their perfect home furnishings, but even for those who aren’t local, it provides plenty of styling and eBay search inspiration.

@HomeUnion

Based in New York (though with options to ship), Home Union features a large percentage of toned-down, mid-century picks. Here, you’ll find some rarer pieces by notable designers (like lamps by Bill Curray for Laurel), in addition to some timeless investment pieces (like walnut dressers and Danish table sets).

@casa_shop

Perhaps the most mesmerizing of the bunch, Casa Shop displays its wares (largely decorative items and glassware) in motion. Since its curatorial emphasis is on small accents rather than big pieces of furniture, it remains on the accessible side price-wise. Just be sure to act fast—things sell out quickly.

Muted corals and warm oranges lend a cozy vibe to this shop. Much of the decor comes at reasonable, under-$50 price tags—finding the perfect piece (perhaps a ceramic vase or a Moroccan basket?) doesn’t have to blow your budget.

@noihsaf_home

Not exclusively vintage, this account is a sister to the widely popular @noihsaf.bazaar, where sellers can apply to list different clothing items to sell. This account, though, focuses on the home, including a wide array of rugs, textiles, and decorative items. Think of it as a hyper-curated eBay, where you have to act very, very fast.
