The Best Places to Shop for Home Decor Online
Put down the IKEA Catalog. We’ve found a better way. Skip the usual suspects and search these 11 websites that will keep your home from feeling like everybody else’s.
Muji: If you’ve ever been inside of a Muji store you know it smells absolutely divine—thanks to their incredibly sleek diffusers. As if you are inhaling those essential oil blends, let yourself fall under the spell of the Japanese-version of Ikea. So many housewares, so many shirts that are shrunken down into little cubes, so much actually well-designed furniture, and more.
Urban Outfitters: Yes, the place that sells ironic mom jeans also has some pretty solid furniture and art options. Most of it’s online so you don’t even need to go in and look at all of the ‘90s items that have returned to fashion and feel shamed.
Society6: A marketplace for hundreds of thousands of artists to turn their work into just about anything you could want for your home. Find a work you love and have it created on anything from a canvas print to a duvet to a shower curtain. Plus, feel great about giving an independent artist some money. Be warned, the options are dizzying, but it’s worth digging through.
Structube: This might be the worst portmanteau of all time disguising one of the best places for home decor of all time. This Canadian brand is so incredibly affordable you will be shocked, but don’t be alarmed—prices on items these like these adorable ottomans are not a mistake.
Of a Kind: Since 2010, Of a Kind has been churning out limited edition (hence “of a kind”) collaborations of everything from jewelry and apparel to ceramics and art prints. You learn a decent amount about the designers featured on the site with blogs, travel guides, recipes, and even a podcast so you’ll have some backstory when friends inevitably ask you where you got that enviable framed print.
Arro Home: Have you ever read an Australian design magazine? They’re kind of better at everything than we Americans are—which is why Arro Home has a host of affordable options like Memphis-inspired sheets, textured glass tumblers, and groovy rugs. Go ahead and shop and know that every piece in Arro’s collection is blessed with the coolness of the kangaroos.
H&M: The home of “going out tops” has shockingly impressive home decor. The linens strike the perfect balance of on trend and surprisingly chic. Plus everything is priced at the equivalent of what you’re willing to pay for drop-crotch pants you’ll only wear once to try to be cool (read: not much).
Zara: Zara has become the juggernaut of fast-fashion, so it should come as no shock that they do an incredible job of cranking out of-the-moment home accessories, linens, and tableware. Right now you should nab nubby mustard throws, splatterware bath accessories, and this oddly adorable, vintage-inspired duck pitcher.
Article: A startup that’s designed to cut out the middleman. No showroom, just straight from the designers and manufacturers to you, all delivered for $49—everything from leather sectionals to Mid-Century dining tables to minimalist, exposed bulb lamps.
All Modern: The all here really isn’t an understatement. Everything you can imagine that’s even a little bit modern—plus some stuff that isn’t really that modern but we guess they decided to have it anyway!
The Maryn: Former Domino magazine editor decamps to Michigan, opens an impeccably curated online shop that will make you think about moving to Michigan so you have enough space to buy everything from her impeccably curated online shop.
