2. Long-drop pendant lighting

Long-drop, also known as low-hanging lighting, is the style of pendant lights with long ceiling cords. They are popular for creating an intimate atmosphere by bringing the light source closer to eye-level rather than high above your head.

Most often used in stairwells, dining rooms, kitchens, and rooms with high ceilings, this type of lighting is useful for illuminating a focal point from above. This works very well for dining tables, for example, where table lamps are impractical.

Long-drop pendant lighting is set to be a continued trend for home interiors in 2024. According to Google Ads, the term "long drop light" had a notable spike in the number of searches per month by 900% (between August 2022 and August 2023 across the US, UK, Australia, France, Germany, and Spain).

  • Spotlight areas of a room without using floor or table space (unlike lamps)
  • Easy to reach when changing light bulbs
  • Practical for rooms where ceilings are very high

3. Clothing rack

For setting up an open wardrobe, a clothing rack is a furniture item that shoppers love. Unlike a traditional wardrobe, a clothing rack is similar to those used in shops, where trousers, tops, dresses, and jackets can be hung up and easy to see.

Small living arrangements are ideal for the use of a clothing rack. When a large closed wardrobe won't fit, a clothing rack offers a practical solution. Those that are extra-organised appreciate a clothing rack for hanging their outfits for the next day and to help visually put outfits together.

Certain clothing rack designs, such as the vidaXL wooden rack below, are also handy for steaming clothes. The narrow build means that one or two pieces of clothing can be carefully steamed at a time. Additional storage details are a thoughtful touch for dedicating a space to jewellery and accessories for a certain outfit.

  • An alternative to closed wardrobes
  • A dedicated space to hang an outfit for the next day
  • Open design allows for ventilation of the clothes

4. Antique-style desk

With the rise in remote workers since the Covid pandemic, desks and home office furniture are top selling products online. Rather than just appealing to the online customers with a low budget, consider higher-end desks.

Solid wood desks with an antique style are an appealing piece to furnish a home study. They are sturdy, well-built, and have a high standard of craftsmanship. Although they may seem to be an investment piece, better quality desks will be a worthwhile purchase to the online shoppers that prefer antique style.

Many solid wooden antique-style desks are quite affordable and fit into both 'new money' and 'old money' home interior design.

5. Boxing speed ball

Indoor athletic equipment is popular for entertainment and fitness at home. For dropshipping in this category, there are a number of customer segments that are interested. For example, parents appreciate ways to encourage children and teenagers to spend time offline. Adult homeowners like to purchase fun items to keep themselves and friends entertained.

A boxing speed ball is a small hanging punching bag. It is used for training in boxing, which is a sport that has gained a large following recently. There has been a rise in the number of boxing gyms, studios, and boxing classes in many urban areas.

Ideal for stress-relief, boxing can be practised at home without attending a professional gym.

Dog beds give a comfortable space for pets to sleep and rest without ruining the furniture in the house reserved for the humans. Now, there are dog beds in all types of styles and designs. Dog sofas are particularly popular for their novelty of looking like a miniature version of a regular sofa.

Velvet dog sofas with curved backs and art deco aesthetic not only bring glam to the home but they are a fun conversation started with guests.

7. Kids toy easel

Who never had a kids toy easel when they were growing up? The toy easel is a classic children's play set that simply every kid should get to enjoy. Almost every child feels inspired by instinct to be like Picasso, so letting them have a place to paint, draw, and get creative is a no-brainer.

What makes the toy easel so fun is that it makes the child feel like an adult. The standing easel lets kids feel like a teacher or a professional artist and encourages playtime. It is an easy way to set up an art station without needing to use a table or desk.

8. Sustainable baby bouncer

New parents that are eco-conscious prefer baby products that have minimal impact on the environment. Baby items are notorious for using a lot of plastic including baby toys, carriers, bowls and cutlery, high chairs, and playpens. Offering these consumers an eco-friendly option is a way to stand out from other online competitors.

Small living arrangements are ideal for the use of a clothing rack. When a large closed wardrobe won't fit, a clothing rack offers a practical solution. Those that are extra-organised appreciate a clothing rack for hanging their outfits for the next day and to help visually put outfits together.

A baby bouncer made from sustainable beechwood and cotton hammock would appeal to mums and dads that want to make careful purchases. This model of baby bouncer boasts minimal use of plastic and arguably has better craftsmanship than a cheaper, non-sustainable alternative.

This type of baby bouncer not only looks good with home interiors, especially Scandinavian design, but the quality of the product makes it a joy to hand down to other new parents or use again for other siblings. It has been thoughtfully made, cosy and comfortable for baby, and is a stylish way to calm a nervous little one.

Stone sinks are an indoor product to dropship if you want to target an audience that likes luxurious-looking interiors. These basins are reminiscent of high-end hotels and five-star spas. The natural materials add a grounding touch to the home where it might otherwise feel clinical or dull.
