44 Best Online Furniture Stores For Every Style and Budget

West Elm, one of my favorite online furniture stores

As an interior design editor and enthusiast of all things decor, one of the questions I get asked most is: “What are the best online furniture stores to shop at?” My friends ask, my mom asks, and strangers on the Internet ask.

This website uses affiliate links which may earn a commission for purchases made at no additional cost to you.

Mostly, I find that people want suggestions about where to shop for furniture for a few reasons:

  • They get stuck going to the same couple of local places and are looking for something different
  • They want to know where to find stylish furniture within their budget
  • They love the look of a high end furniture store and want less-expensive alternatives
  • They don’t shop for furniture and decor often and just aren’t sure what’s out there, save for the obvious options.
  • They have something in mind that they want and can’t find it, and want to know where else to look

So, if you fall into one of the above categories, bookmark this page (or pin the photo below). Because I’ve put together a list of my top online home stores.

The Best Online Furniture Stores for Every Style and Price Point

Lulu & Georgia, Another Favorite

I’ve included furniture stores, specialty stores (i.e. ones that only sell throw pillows or accessories), and a healthy mix of online boutiques and national chains stores, so you should be able to find what you’re looking for here. For simplicity’s sake, I only included home decor stores with e-commerce, so you can shop all of these stores online.

I also added little dollar signs next to the name of each store, which is my own personal categorization of how expensive each place is. There’s no real science to it, but I think it’ll give you a good idea of which places are bargain-friendly and which ones are better suited for those investment pieces.

One dollar sign ($) means budget friendly (think Target and HomeGoods), three ($$$) means expensive (like RH), and two ($$) means somewhere in between (i.e. Crate & Barrel or Wayfair).

Bookmark this page, or pin the pin below, and every time you get stumped on where to shop for new throw pillow covers, or dining chairs, or wall art or whatever you’re scouring the internet and curbsides for (where my side-of-the-road furniture people at?), reference this hand guide to the best home decor stores out there.

THE ULTIMATE LIST OF STYLISH HOME DECOR STORES

1. LULU & GEORGIA ($$)

Chairs from Lulu & Georgia

Lulu & Georgia is quickly becoming one of the best online home decor stores for trend-conscious shoppers with an organic modern vibe. Their boho-cool assortment of furniture is high-quality and hip, and feels like it was personally curated by Erin Gates or Sarah Sherman Samuel … which is probably because they’ve done incredible designer collaborations with both, not to mention Bobby Berk, Clare V., and Ellen (yes, that Ellen). Lulu & Georgia also offers a mix of their own original collections and brands like Arteriors, Chilewich, Ollie Ella, and more.

2. PERIGOLD ($$-$$$)

Think of Perigold as Wayfair’s sophisticated older sister. Perigold, which is owned by Wayfair, sells higher-end designer furnishings from brands that are often trade-only (i.e. brands that only interior designers can shop), like EJ Victor, CR Laine, Janus et Cie, and Schumacher. While you might pay a little more than you would at Wayfair, you’ll also get access to options you won’t find anywhere else.

3. WAYFAIR ($$)

Wallpaper from Kelly Clarkson Home via Wayfair

Prefer a more budget-friendly array of options? Wayfair has them. Their slogan is “a zillion things home” and they ain’t lyin’. Wayfair has SO many options that it can sometimes be overwhelming, but if you know what you’re looking for, their search tools will help you whittle down the best options. I prefer Wayfair for accent furniture and case goods, like side tables, ottomans, and benches.

4. H&M HOME ($)

H&M is one of the best online home stores there for on-trend, cute accents and decor. If you want to update your shelfie with the it-objects everyone has on Instagram, you’ll find an affordable version here. I also love their throw pillow cover collections. They change seasonally and are up-to-the-moment trend wise (and CHEAP! Oh so cheap.)

5. HOMEGOODS ($-$$)

There’s not much not to love about HomeGoods. We all know about the thrill of the find, am I right? HomeGoods is a great place to find on-trend, in-budget accent furniture like barstools, benches, side tables, and armchairs, along with rugs, affordable lighting and decor. While they have an online store, I much prefer the in-person experience.

6. ONE KING’S LANE ($$-$$$)

I loooove One King’s Lane. And for a few reasons. First, they group their decor into stylized collections like “Montauk Beach House,” or “Chic Chinoiserie”, so you can shop by the style that speaks to you. They also often have one-of-a-kind vintage items, or trade brands at a discount. It’s just a well-edited site that I always turn to for both shopping and inspiration.

7. REJUVENATION ($$-$$$)

Image via Rejuvenation

If I could live inside one store forever, Rejuvenation might be it. I love the mix of vintage, modern, and traditional pieces they sell, and the whole vibe is just casual-chic meets Americana and I’m here for it. But enough about me. Rejuvenation is an awesome place to shop for lighting, hardware and plumbing fixtures (think cabinet pulls, bathroom towel bars, shelving brackets, stair hardware, sinks, faucets, etc. etc.), and furniture. They also have a great selection of vintage items and antiques.

8. CRATE & BARREL ($$-$$$)

What would a list of the best home decor stores be without Crate & Barrel? This OG furniture retailer is a trust source for quality furnishings at mid-range prices. I personally love their upholstery (sofas & armchairs) because it’s well-made and customizable, but they’re also a great source for kitchen and bath items, and larger case goods like buffets and sideboards, and dining room furniture.

9. ARHAUS ($$$)

If you’re looking for a high-end furniture store with quality and style that will last for decades, head to Arhaus. The retailer is know for its durable upholstered pieces, versatile style, and high-end design aesthetic.

Shop Arhaus

10. BALLARD ($$)

Ballard is another classic home decor store that I’m often surprised to find that people don’t know about (I mean, it’s definitely a huge store and no hidden gem here, but not always as top-of-mind as, say, Crate & Barrel). This is weird, but one of the things Ballard is best for is bar stools. I’ve always found that they’re hard to shop for and Ballard has a great selection. It’s also good for upholstery and larger pieces like dining tables, headboards, and outdoor furniture.

11. MCGEE & CO ($$$)

This gorgeous shop by the founders of Studio McGee (of Instagram fame) is genius. Their original furniture is my favorite (think arm chairs like the ones in the photo above, daybeds, and accent tables) because it’s so unique, and of-the-moment, and not like anything else you’ll see.

12. ETSY ($-$$$)

OK, so this isn’t really a home decor store, and more of a home decor marketplace, but details aside, Etsy is a great place to find unique things for your home. I shop Etsy mostly for art. it includes a bunch of my favorite Etsy stores where you can buy gorgeous wall art for a few dollars, but I also love it for vintage signs, small accent items, and lighting.

14. TARGET ($)

What would a list of incredible home decor stores be without good ol Tarjay. Their seasonal collection get me every time, and I always head straight to Target when I feel like my home is getting a little serious and I need something fun and trendy.

15. CB2 ($$)

CB2 is the ultimate contemporary home store. Their furniture and decor is on-trend, but in an elevated, chic way that seems more designer-sourced than mass-market. I love it for everything from sofas and tables, to mirrors and lighting, to hardware and tabletop.

16. ZARA HOME ($)

Zara’s home decor line is as hip as their clothes. Like H&M, this is mostly a spot for decorative finishing touches like throw pillows, tabletop, cute bath towels, etc.

17. POTTERY BARN ($$-$$$)

Pottery Barn is, of course, a staple, and for good reason. They make great quality furniture, and though it isn’t inexpensive, it’s well worth the price for the quality. Besides furniture, they’re also a great resource for things like bathroom vanities and mirrors, hardware, drapery and drapery rods, and textiles (their towels are divine!).

18. SCOUT & NIMBLE ($$)

I found Scout & Nimble on Instagram, and it actually took me a few months to realize it was a home decor store because I was just so into looking at all of the gorgeous inspiration photos they post. But let me tell ya, once I realized they were selling their aesthetic, I was hooked. They sell a mid-to-high-range selection of trending furniture and decor from high-style, designer favorite brands like Four Hands Furniture, Mitzi Lighting, Noir, and Selamat.

19. AMAZON ($)

My breakfast nook with Amazon curtains

amazon home has awesome basics for the home (and also literally anything you ever wanted, but you knew that). I’ve Primed things like flatware and serving pieces for the kitchen, end tables and bedding. They do offer furniture, but honestly if I were going to order larger things like a sofa or dining table from a huge online store, it would be Wayfair since their customer service is specifically tailored around furniture and I find it to be better.

20. SERENA & LILY ($$$)

Image via Serena & Lily

Serena & Lily is by far the best online furniture store if you have a coastal aesthetic. And it might be the prettiest home decor store of all time. No really, if you haven’t been to one of their bricks-and-mortar stores, go. I know we’re talking online shopping here, but it’s worth the trip in the car. They’re stunning. Serena & Lily is expensive, but if it’s in your budget, check it out for preppy-traditional and coastal-inspired furniture and decor.

21. CHAIRISH ($-$$$)

Every home needs a few good antiques, and Chairish is a great marketplace for sourcing both antiques and vintage finds (art, furniture, rugs, accent pieces). Some of it is super-high-end, dealer-quality stuff, but there’s also plenty of sales and bargains to be had if you dig around a little bit.

22. ANTHROPOLOGIE ($$-$$$)

We’ve all seen the gold, french-inspired Anthropologie mirror sitting atop every mantle on Instagram, but Anthropologie is more than just its ubiquitous mirror. They’ve got great sofas and coffee tables, beds and headboards, bathroom hardware, and even wallpaper and kids stuff, too. But I do really love that mirror…

23. TERRAIN ($$$)

Anthropologie’s sister store, Terrain, is primarily dedicated to garden, faux florals, planters, and outdoor, but they do a great job with decor and candles, too. If you live near one of their retail stores (there’s only a handful of them), they’re beautiful and worth a visit!

24. WEST ELM ($$)

Looking for modern design, trending prints, and of-the-moment colors? You can’t beat West Elm. Their furniture is contemporary, but with an accessible price point that makes it economical to test out the latest looks at home.

25. WORLD MARKET ($-$$)

I love World Market. They always, always have a few gems that make this site (or store if you live near one!) worth a regular visit. A few things I’ve had the best luck with at World Market: Lighting, shelving, and side chairs/dining chairs. It’s also a great source for small tabletop decor, dishes, and bathroom textiles.

Shop World Market

26. DWR ($$$)

If you love minimalist, Scandinavian-style furniture, and name brans design icons, DWR should be a go-to. They offer lots of high end modernist finds that’ll instantly up the cool factor in any room.

27. RUGS USA ($)

Design: @luckyandi featuring a Rugs USA rug.

Sure, you can spend a small fortune on a rug — and there are plenty of vintage oriental rugs I’ve fallen in love with over the years that have cost thousands. But also: I have two kids and a dog, and until none of them live with me any more, I choose slightly more budget friendly rugs for my home. Enter: Rugs USA. I’ve gotten SO many rugs from them. Their selection is huge, they ship fast, and you can get an 8′ x 10′ rug for under $400.

28. URBAN OUTFITTERS ($-$$)

If you haven’t shopped at Urban Outfitters since you were in college, you might want to give it another look. UO is an unexpectedly awesome (not to mention affordable) spot for modern & on-trend decor like throw pillows, wall art, and accent furniture (like this gorgeous little gold side table). They’ve also got a good selection of smaller-scale apartment furniture.

29. KIRKLAND’S ($$)

Kirkland’s is another favorite spot for bargain-friendly decor. I’ve mostly purchased things like mirrors, baskets, and dinnerware, but they’ve got a huge line of products that also includes furniture, drapery, bedding, bath and more. Style-wise, they have a little bit of everything, but their biggest selection by far is farmhouse/country style decor.

30. OVERSTOCK.COM ($$)

Wondering where to shop for furniture that’s similar to Wayfair but not Wayfair? Try Overstock. Overstock is another home decor behemoth where you’ll find anything and everything from tons of different brands. I find their selection is similar to Wayfair, but I’ll often price compare to see which site is offering the better deal.

31. ARTERIORS ($$$)

Arteriors is a design-lovers paradise that’s especially awesome for lighting and accent furniture that makes a statement. Arteriors sells expensive furniture, you’re on a budget, make Arteriors the “high” in your high-low mix and I promise you your entire space will look fabulous and expensive.

32. IKEA ($)

ikea kitchen with open shelving

I couldn’t leave IKEA off a list of home decor stores, could I? (Of course not. It’s IKEA.) It may be cheap, but some of their stuff is pure gold. I have a sofa from IKEA that I bought online and love (the Farlov sectional), and I get most of my picture frames there because they’re cheap and awesome. If you don’t live near an IKEA, or can’t stand sorting through the massive warehouse in person, their website should be a staple.

33. FRONTGATE ($$)

transitional style dining area

Frontgate makes great-quality staples, but especially when it comes to outdoor decor like furniture, address plaques, house numbers, and planters. But! It’s also a robust source for seasonal decor (especially during their post-holiday sales), bedding, and towels.

34. INTERIOR DEFINE ($$)

In the market for a stylish sofa or a set of gorgeous dining chairs you won’t see anywhere else? Check out Interior Define. The direct-to-consumer retailer makes custom furniture accessible and affordable: You choose your silhouette and fabric, and they ship it out to you in a couple of months.

Note that, during the pandemic, the store got a pretty bad rap for supply chain delays of up to 6 months. However, in early 2023, Havenly bought Interior Define and has committed to fixing the company’s lead-time ails. According to what I’ve seen about the company on Reddit since, Havenly is doing a fantastic job.

35. ARTICLE ($$)

modern bed with white room

 Article has been around for a few years now, and is gaining popularity thanks to their high-quality, well-priced sofas, chairs, beds, and case goods. In fact, I purchased a sofa from them for our family room in 2020, before we renovated the space and got a sectional, and it was a great value for the price I paid.

Article’s selection is limited, but everything they’ve got feels fresh and hip, so if you suffer from home decor decision overwhelm, make this your one-stop shop.

36. MAIDEN HOME ($$$)

modern armchair

Maiden Home was founded on a similar concept as Interior Define – custom, made-to-order furnishings for the masses, but the brand is definitely more high-end, with a focus on quality. Maiden Home’s sofas are also American-made, so if that’s important to you, you’ll definitely want to check them out.

37. Room & Board ($$)

gray sofa in white room

From a style standpoint, Room & Board furniture is more modern and midcentury-similar to West Elm, but a bit more contemporary. Like West Elm, Room & Board is a great place to look for those staple furniture items like sofas, coffee tables, dining chairs, and beds.

38. Ethan Allen ($$)

distressed buffet

Ethan Allen is a Connecticut-based furniture brand known for home furnishings that will stand the test of time, Ethan Allen is an excellent bet. From a style standpoint, Ethan Allen design is classic and simple, while pricing is about what you’d pay at Crate & Barrel.

39. HORCHOW ($$)

modern bedroom from horchow

Horchow mainly sells high-end furniture and decor. But, unlike some of the furniture stores on this list, the furniture Horchow sells isn’t under its brand name. Instead, Horchow sells items from top manufacturers like Hooker, Palacek, Global Views, Four Hands, and Interlude Home. As such, the style offerings are more wide-range, and you’ll find everything from minimalist furniture, to coastal styles, to traditional pieces.

40. Z GALLERIE ($$)

Z Gallerie is known for affordable, modern furniture with a glamorous streak. Think: Lots of black, white, and metallics, animal prints, fax-fur, and velvet in modern silhouettes. The looks is sleeker and less-rustic than Arhaus, which makes Z Gallerie a great place to look for items to add a little contrast to your space.

41. JOSS & MAIN ($$)

Joss & Main is another sister site of Wayfair, but with a curated approach (great for those who find the sheer selection at Wayfair to be overwhelming). You’ll find “Sales” based around themes and categories like “kitchen lighting” or “beach house bedroom,” or “coastal bar stools we love,” etc.

42. RH ($$$)

outdoor club chair

RH is a high-end retailer of gorgeous home decor and furnishings. Most are neutral, with a glamorous-meets-rustic vibe that’s become the store’s signature aesthetic.

So there you have it! While this is a pretty exhaustive list, I’m sure there are plenty of killer home decor stores I forgot,  so I’ll update as more pop to mind, or if you know one I left off, feel free to drop it in the comments!

43. ASHLEY FURNITURE ($)

OK. So for the longest time I had an impression that Ashely Furniture only sold frumpy sofas. And, while there are still plenty of frumpy sofas to be had on the site, there are also some hipper things happening at the store in the last five years, so don’t rule them out.

44. BASSETT ($$)

Bassett is another under-appreciated furniture store, at least in my mind. I never really thought about it until my sister got the most comfortable sofa ever there (the Allure sectional, in case you’re wondering). It’s stylish, but cozy, and it’s the first place I got when I get to her house. Overall, Bassett is one of the best online furniture stores for sofas and upholstered furniture, as well as beds, dining tables, and other large furniture piece.

How do I get the best deal at a furniture store?

Furniture is expensive, so it makes sense that you want to get a deal on it. When you’re shopping for furniture here are a few tips for getting the best price:

  • Wait to shop until major holidays. Nearly all big furniture retailers hold sales during big holidays. Think Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Back-to-School, etc. So, waiting a few weeks to buy your items can save hundreds of dollars.
  • Look for floor models. Many furniture stores sell the floor models, or the furniture that’s on display in the stores, at a discounted rate because it’s been sat on and touched. Typically, floor models are sold when new furniture arrives, so ask a salesperson about timing.
  • Try open-box items. Like floor models, online retailers often sell returned items at a discounted rate because the box has been open. so the item can’t be sold as “new” any longer but is likely still in like-new condition.
  • Ask about loyalty discounts, teacher discounts, etc. Some stores offer discounts for those who sign up for their email list or those in a certain profession, like front-line workers or teachers. Ask about any loyalty programs before handing over your credit card.
  • Price match or comparison shop. If you’re shopping online, Google the item you want to buy to see if any other retailers are selling it for cheaper. If you’re in a brick-and-mortar store, ask the salesperson if they’ll price match the lower price. If you’re shopping online, go with the cheaper retailer.
  • Check FB Marketplace first. You’d be surprised at what you might find there! I’ve found brand-new or like new furniture from West Elm, Anthropologie, Target, and more.
