Buying new furniture is very exciting, although it can at times be quite daunting with so many options to choose from and so many factors to consider before making a final decision. If you are not keen to drive around, browsing online furniture stores is a great alternative.
Well-made pieces that look like heirloom antiques (without the hefty price tags) are what you’ll find here, with stately wood and metal side tables, chic leather X-benches, and ladylike linen vanity stools among the standouts. “I love the upholstered headboards—they’re curvy and elegant, with details like nailheads and tufting,” says designer Jessica Becker. Also notable: a supply-your-own material program. The site outlines the yardage and the specs needed for each item (like an ottoman or an armchair); you send in your fabric for a custom piece.
The gems at this easy-to-search online warehouse never cease to amaze. Filter your results by price, pattern type, color, style, and more to comb through the reliably great selection of steeply discounted furniture in every style, with (bonus) free shipping over $50. The range of chests and dressers is especially stellar. Think traditional, goes-with-anything painted-wood pieces and dressier mirrored styles.
This mecca for clean, contemporary furnishings turns out high-design, reasonably priced goods, including leather beds, lacquer nightstands, and reclaimed-wood dressers. Largely responsible for making the trendy midcentury style more mainstream, this retailer has deftly crafted pieces that strike a beautiful balance—bold enough to anchor a room yet subtle enough to seamlessly blend in. City dwellers: Behold the plethora of options for small spaces, like beds with built-in storage and nightstands with petite proportions.
