Nate Berkus' Five Favorite Places to Shop for the Home:
- Pavilion Antiques - Chicago, IL - "I've been shopping here for almost 20 years since I first opened my design firm. Whenever I am back in Chicago, it's the first place I visit. They showcase only the very best...in furniture, art, decorative pieces. I always find something that is perfect for a client project. Or for my own home. Whatever it is, it always ends up being a talking point."
- Showplace Antiques - New York, NY - "I really missed this when I was out in LA filming 'American Dream Builders'. Because when I'm in New York, I literally shop here every weekend. For jewelry, furniture, one-of-a-kind finds...I'm all about the hunt. I love having to uncover things."
- La Cienega Design Quarter - Los Angeles, CA - "One of my favorite places in LA. As a designer, it's just such an incredible resource. For fabric, rugs, furniture, lighting...you name it. The whole area is dedicated to design so you can pretty much find whatever it is that you are looking for."
- Target - Everywhere, U.S. - "Coming from Minneapolis, Target was always the place my mother took us for school supplies or Halloween costumes. To now have my own home collection sold there, is amazing. I don't know one person who doesn't love shopping at Target. I'm always adding pieces from my collection into my home. Right now I'm obsessed with the Hexagonal side tables. And the gold mirrored geometric trays."
- Lawson-Fenning - Silver Lake, CA - "This was a go-to store for the contestants on the show. Week after week, our designers were pulling off jaw-dropping transformations. This store has the most beautiful antiques, accessories, lighting and furniture. Go in, if only to get a huge dose of design inspiration."
