5 European Online Home Sources Worth Paying the Shipping

by Lolz Gonzalez
In a world where Googling online coupon codes can often cancel out those pesky shipping charges, and pre-paid domestic return labels are a matter of course, it can sometimes feel crazy--even reckless!--to commit to an international purchase. But there are times when that far-flung reward is just so drool-worthy that we're happy to throw caution to the wind and shell out a few more dollars (or euros, as the case may be) to get it to our doors. The sources below--from France, Amsterdam, Sweden and England--are often responsible for those times.   dh-worth-paying-shipping-title-05

Denton Pendant, $650 Byron Bench, $1343 Turned Candlesticks, $134
  The vibe of Surrey, England-based furnishings outpost Rowen & Wren is low-key-luxe country pile--perfect for a dose of modern manor. We're dreaming about hanging their industrial rectangular pendant over our farmhouse dining table, landscaping a new garden around their teak indoor-outdoor bench, and putting in a fireplace just to place their turned oak candlesticks in front of it.   dh-worth-paying-shipping-title-04

Lily Round Table, $303 Tony Floor Lamp, $107 Ceramic Casserole Pot, $39

  Paris-based Merci is perfect for your idyllic French purchases--rustic faded red striped linen tablecloth anyone?--and less culturally specific statement items, including tin-moulding-inspired wallpaper, and a stunning conical glass pendant lamp by designer Phillipe Daney, too. dh-worth-paying-shipping-title-01
