    Cool Dwelling vs dwillings

    I understand that one is a plural of the other. However, Is there a difference when we say “dwelling gallery” vs “dwellings gallery”? what does it mean to you? Which is more correct? thanks

    In what context do you want to use one of these unusual phrases?

    Note the corrections I made to your post. If your home accessories business is going to have a website in English, then you need to learn the rules of written English, particularly with regard to capitalisation.

    I find the name of your business very strange. A "dwelling gallery" sounds like an exhibition of photographs/paintings of houses.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Dwelling(s) gallery does not suggest an online home accessories site to me.
