I just got a Birch Lane, and I really like it, too.

+1 for Ballard for two reasons:

1. Great selection and customer service.
2. When I decided to opt out of receiving print/mail products, Ballard was the quickest and easiest to stop. They emailed me to tell me they'd remove me from all mailing lists, and indeed they did. I never rec'd another one from them. (Actually, that probably falls under "great customer service".)

It's all eye candy that is a minimum of 2,500 miles away from me. Sigh! We can't afford to pay retail and pay for shipping so we decorate with stuff from yard sales. Guess that doesn't count as a true "source", though.

The different stores and magazines have great ideas, though. I have old issues of Architectural Digest, although there's very little actual Architecture in it.

Gosh, shipping would be a killer in HI. Just getting ideas is still fun, though.

My dwelling is 1,200 sqft, and that is split between two floors: so 600 sqft on top of 600 sqft. IKEA is the only catalog I have come across that puts a good amount of focus onto smaller homes. Plus, I can visit one of their local stores and check out the displays in person

I wish we had one, but we are far away. I did get to explore one once.

Arhaus - I love their pieces and room settings.
RH - although they can be overwhelming, I love their source books - great for inspiration.
Frontgate - they tend to be ahead of the market and/or carry better manufactured items. I also like their outdoor and holiday goods.
Horchow - mostly for inspiration, although I'm not always impressed with their products.

Layla Grayce - unique pieces and inspiring room designs. (I've ordered from them before, but I don't believe they have a mail catalog.)

Touchstone - for holiday items.

I also personally like this most, I also feel the same for this catalog.

I like At West End, Wisteria, Room Service Home, RH, Ballard, West Elm as well.

What's fun is getting ideas and then finding similar small items at Ross, or down here, Beall's Outlet. I have found many Room Service Home type doodads at Beall's Outlet, especially.

Anthropologie has some cool stuff but pricey. I may get some of their kitchen things after the remodel.

I used to get one called DWR (Design Within Reach) that's really good, if you like modern furniture. I like it, but never bought anything, so I don't get it anymore.
