Baton Rouge shops to find a new sofa, nightstand or wall art

While we may cycle through our wardrobes as seasons and trends pass, the items in our homes have a little more staying power. You’ll watch TV from that sofa every night, pad across that rug all day, and your wall art might be the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning. All the more reason to invest in pieces you can see and touch before you purchase them. And luckily, there are plenty of cool shops around town to find those pieces.


3458 Drusilla Lane, Ste. A
Drusilla Imports
Inside an unassuming shopping center off Drusilla Lane are aisles of concrete statues and pottery in all shapes and sizes, as well as grand furniture like regal tufted headboards, rustic TV stands and charming dining sets. Drusilla Imports also stocks plenty of accents, like yard flags, fountains and vintage-inspired clocks. drusillaimports.com

3655 Perkins Road
The Foyer
So many shops stick to one specific style—particularly here in Louisiana where the aesthetic is so decidedly Southern contemporary. But the best thing about The Foyer: It’s home to more than 75 different vendors, each with their own unique design personality. Whatever you’re looking for—modern minimalist lamps, funky boho rugs, textiles by local makers, the coolest eclectic glassware for your home bar—you have one of the best chances of finding it in this diverse selection. thefoyerbr.com

13539 Hooper Road
318 W. Highway 30, Gonzales
Lancaster House
The fleur de lis in this store’s logo isn’t just for kicks. The iconic lily design is represented all over its collection of candles, statues, wall art, T-shirts and furniture. The wholesale supplier also boasts an array of oil paintings, lamps, ceramics and decorative objects. Check its website or social media for public sale dates. wholesalefleurdelis.com

1010 Nicholson Drive
It’s a little ironic that a furniture store with the slogan “everything modern” is housed in a building that dates back to the early 1900s. Either way, Monochrome is one of the best reasons to visit 1010 Nic, the refurbished warehouse shopping center just south of downtown. With modular sofas, funky armchairs in rich shades of mustard and lime, and candlesticks that look more like art pieces, this is the place to outfit a home that looks like no one else’s. Find Monochrome on Facebook

15680 Perkins Road
1680 Lobdell Ave., Ste. A
Red Onion
Head to Red Onion for its lush greenhouses full of plants, but stick around for the excellently curated goodies like soy candles, best-selling recipe and coffee table books like Salt Fat Acid Heat and The New Bohemians, and curvy clay jewelry so eye-catching you’ll want to display it as decor. Because it’s the little touches that make a house feel like home. redonionbr.com

16016 Perkins Road
2877 Perkins Road
The Royal Standard
This boutique’s inventory is covetable enough, you can actually find its pieces for sale at more than 4,000 retailers across the country. What started as an antique shop in the ’90s morphed into a business that designs and manufactures its own furniture, linens, decor and clothing. At the local storefronts, where the inventory leans shabby-chic Southern, you’re just as likely to find a crisp white sofa as a colorful doormat with a quippy slogan. And as one of those doormats says, “squeeze the day.” theroyalstandard.com

8201 Village Plaza Court, Ste. 1A
Part gift store, part home store, Texture is a well-curated haven for trendsetters. Gilded furniture, fringed rugs, and sculptural bowls and printed water bottles so stylish they deserve a permanent spot on your kitchen counter—you’ll find plenty of gift-worthy objects there this season. Although we can’t promise you won’t be tempted to leave with something for yourself, too. Find Texture on Facebook
