Most visitors to Ibiza fantasise about the life they could have if they lived there. Be it in a quaint farmhouse stuffed with rattan weave and rustic-chic furnishings, or a sleek minimalist villa adorned with avant-garde artworks, there are numerous boutiques on the island to cater for every taste. Here’s a rundown of our favourite places to shop to kit out your dream Ibizan home.
In the picturesque village of Santa Gertrudis, Es Cucons is the kind of shop you struggle to walk past and not pop in. Outside the store are piled baskets in every size, shape and style imaginable, while under a wicker awning are stacks of ceramics, cushions, fabrics and rails of boho-chic clothing. Inside, the maze-like shop is surprisingly big, with more homewares, clothes and toys. A shop you will happily come back to every time you visit the island, Es Cucons is styled in a way that will make you long for that bohemian life in Ibiza (and a house on the island to furnish).
A particularly colourful feast for the eyes, <a href=”https://www.sluiz.com/”>Sluiz</a> is a veritable emporium of kitsch, packed with every kind of homeware you can imagine, including rugs, ceramics, candles, furniture, garden gnomes and much more. If the more ordinary items don’t tickle your fancy, there are giant plastic cacti, huge brightly coloured cows, rhinos and other random items (although you might have difficulty getting them home). Once shopping is out of the way, you can sit for a while and enjoy a drink in the shady garden.
Located on the road into Santa Gertrudis, this sleek and stylish shop run by two interior designers is bright and airy, with reams of fabrics piled on the walls, and a beautiful range of furniture, rugs, lighting and other household items. There is a cafe on site and <a href=”http://www.tanisibiza.com/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Tanis</a> offer an interior styling and design consultancy, as well as an upholstery service.

Fronted by enormous sculptures of robots, silver skulls and pink elephants, it’s hard to miss this interior design concept store on the road to Sant Josep. Inside La Maison de l’Elephant, there are five floors dedicated entirely to interiors with some outrageously quirky and avant-garde contemporary designs. Among the art, there are homewares, antiques, unique furniture and even fashion, ranging from the humbly affordable to eye-wateringly expensive. The founder, Bruno Reymond, has styled the interiors of many a famous building on the island, including the extravagant Ushuaia superclub and the Pacha Hotel.
<a href=”https://www.cocoqibiza.com/home” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Cocoq Home Store</a> is a large showroom and warehouse-style interiors shop, selling everything you might ever need for your home, from bigger items of furniture right down to ornaments and knick-knacks. A good place for a wander around, there are various themed and styled ‘rooms’ to get you inspired.
<a href=”https://www.lagaleriaelefante.com/product-category/home-living/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>La Galeria Elefantia</a> is good for smaller household items, colourful kitchenware, novelty cushions and textiles, all boho-inspired. They also sell clothes, jewellery and a huge range of candles and incense. If you can’t get to the store, you can purchase some of their items online.
Located in an ostentatious white, neo-classical building close to the resort of Santa Eulalia, <a href=”https://www.lamaisonblanche-ibiza.com/”>La Maison Blanche</a> specialises in furniture and homewares from Southeast Asia, India and Morocco. The interiors of the shop are as lavish as the entrance to the building suggests, with four-poster beds, vast banqueting tables with ornate chairs and a huge garden at the back filled with bali-beds, Indonesian temple-style gazebos, urns and statues.
