Living in fear of the inevitable crystal candy dish from Grandma Gertie? Pottery Barn a little too traditional for your speed and Crate and Barrel isn’t slick enough? Here are some modern, hip places that provide registries that you can use as primary lists or to pepper your gifts with something a little more contemporary.
CB2: Crate and Barrel’s younger, hipper little sister. Sleek, attractive furniture and home accessories in a surprisingly affordable price range.
Design Public: featuring some of the best designers in modern decor today, DP is a treasure trove of cool stuff. A little pricier overall, they do offer the option to buy giftcards you can use towards the purchase of something there if everything left on the list is outside of the guest’s afforability range.
Design Within Reach: if you’ve ever been in one of their stores, you know – it’s a design paradise. Higher end products and labels push up the price range, but gift cards are available to be purchased in different denominations.
Relish: an eclectic mix of great finds. Items can be found across a good variety of price points, and gift certificates are available for purchase so a guest can pay towards a higher end item.
Chiasso: like Relish, also has a lot of great finds over a wide price range.
