Whether you’re starting with an unfurnished canvas or looking for one statement piece to upgrade an area, it’s difficult to determine where exactly to begin when shopping for your space. As much as the internet is our ally in these DIY endeavors, it can also turn into our worst enemy. We start by Googling a simple keyword, only to end up with an endless sea of sofas to bookcases and every home item in between — turning our search from fun treasure hunt to survival of the strongest.
To avoid any search-result overload, along with misguided over-spending, we rounded up our favorite furniture to decor (and everything in between) sites. Scroll through the destinations ahead, curated by “best for” styles, and take some of the headache out of home shopping. It’s time to kick back, relax, and click your way to a better space — without needing to leave your couch.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
