Birch Lane 

Birch Lane—part of the Joss & Main, Wayfair, and AllModern family—has some of the most imaginative beds for kids we've ever seen, like this one that's practically an entire playhouse while also holding twin and full bunk beds. 

Birch Lane sells complete sets of furniture for a cohesive look, or you can mix and match from their wide selection of furniture, linens, and decor pieces. For inspiration, check out their bedroom ideas page, which is full of rooms with distinct design direction.

They also have frequent sales that often include free shipping, so be on the lookout for opportunities to save on investment pieces and large furniture. 

Lulu & Georgia

​If you want your kids' furniture and decor to have as much style as the rest of your home, look at the offerings from Lulu & Georgia. From drop-dead gorgeous wallpaper to sophisticated storage benches and dreamy beds, their highly curated selection is irresistible. Want your kids' room to have its very own (tiny) tufted velvet chair? This is the place to go for that and more statement making decor pieces.

Ikea

For the price, you simply can't beat the Swedish home store for contemporary furniture finds. Yes, you'll have to assemble it yourself. Yes, the shipping gets costly. But if you're investing in a whole room's worth of furniture, the total cost, even with shipping, will be far less than you'll pay at other name-check-worthy stores.

Crate & Kids

When Crate & Barrel rebranded their iconic The Land of Nod stores, they changed the name to Crate & Kids but didn't lose any of the fun and whimsy furniture the original brand was known for. Looking for a stunning, stylish rattan bed frame your child can possibly have until college? They have it. Or an adorable bookcase shaped like a giraffe? Yep, they have that too. 

Pottery Barn Kids

Monograms and mini chairs and bunk beds, oh my! Pottery Barn Kids has everything you could ever need to outfit your little ones with a perfectly put together, sweet, and playful room. Beds, storage, dressers, and chairs can all be coordinated within collections for a cohesive approach, or mix and match your favorites for traditional-with-a-twist. Much of their furniture is made-to-order, so delivery windows can extend as far as a month out, and white-glove service is available.

Wayfair

We rely on Wayfair for just about any kind of home decor purchase we might need, so it's not surprising that their selection of kids' furniture has a little bit of everything. They're almost always having a sale or offering deep discounts, so you can shop confidently knowing you're getting a good price. Shop for everything from dressers to desks to canopies.

Target

Ah, Target. How do we love thee? We could count the ways, but we'll just say that it's easy to get carried away here, even when you're shopping online. They've got furniture for kids of all ages, playroom essentials, beds, and storage pieces to suit any design aesthetic. Many pieces come with free two-day shipping, which is handy when you're anxious to get to decorating!

One Kings Lane

While you might know One Kings Lane best for their flash sales and expertly curated vintage offerings, they also have a fresh and modern selection of children's furniture. If you want your kids' room to feel almost too stylish, you've come to the right place. Eclectic mixes of texture, color, and patterns allow you to create a dreamy and imaginative space for your children to learn and grow.

Design Life Kids

One of our favorite kid-specific online shops, Design Life Kids, has tons of unique finds from designers around the world. Create a global, eclectic vibe in your kids' bedroom or playroom with rattan stools that have secret storage for a few toys and distinctive art and lighting you won't find anywhere else. This is truly one-of-a-kind decor style for the youngest member of the family.

2Modern

For the parent in search of truly modern, statement-making furniture for their kids, 2Modern should be your go-to online shop. Designers like Fermob, Blu Dot, and Knoll offer the kinds of sleek and interesting decor items you'll keep for many years to come, long after your little ones have outgrown them. Heller even offers a colorful twisted polymer cube from their Frank Gehry Collection! Start 'em young, we say! (And for the record, this cube makes a modernist seating option for adults, too.)

What to Look for When Buying Kids' Furniture Online

Variety

Some online retailers are great for specific products, whereas others offer a range of items. That variety will serve you well if you're trying to stick to a single website to outfit an entire room. Retailers that sell everything from bed frames to couches to dressers make the shopping experience so much easier.

Photos

Shopping online for anything, but especially furniture, can feel tricky. That's why it's so important to shop with retailers that have great photos at different angles. This can hopefully cut down on any buyer's remorse, but also give you a better idea of how a piece of furniture might look in your current space. The same goes for measurements. It's really key to read the descriptions and measurements to ensure the furniture can actually fit in a room and even through your home's doorway.

Return Policy

Sometimes, even in spite of the most thoughtful purchases, it's necessary to return an item. Before adding to cart and purchasing furniture, be sure to check and double check the store's return policy. Some items are easier to ship back, but for heavier pieces like a bed frame or dresser, it's convenient to have a return service that picks the item up at your doorstep.

FAQ
  • Should I involve my child in picking out their furniture?

    For children who can vocalize their likes and dislikes, why not involve them in the furniture shopping process? They may have preferences when it comes to certain colors and styles. However, as a parent, you have more insight into what furniture items are functional but also have the potential to last through the years.

  • When is the best time to buy kids' furniture online?

    The time of year you shop for kids' furniture can depend on so many factors. Spring and fall can offer a range of new collections and designs being released. If you're shopping with a budget in mind, then those early spring, late fall, and holiday sales can be a perfect time to finalize your decisions and take advantage of wallet-friendly home and furniture sales.

  • How much should I spend or invest in kids' furniture?

    Everyone's idea of affordability is pretty subjective. It's always best to determine whatever your specific budget is based on your wallet and your child's needs. Some items like a bed frame for an older child might be worth more of an investment, whereas a trendy night table might be something you can save on.
