Unique Places to Shop for Home Accessories

Have you ever found yourself in a shopping rut, treading a worn path over the same ground over and over in search of an elusive item for your home? We definitely have our short list of favorite stores, so when we're looking for something for our homes, we tend to browse through each one--either online or in person--to find the best options (and prices!).

If you're a frequent shopper for home accessories, then you may already know about some of the favorite go-to stores like Target, HomeGoods, World Market, and IKEA, as well as online one-stop shops like Wayfair and Hayneedle. (If, by chance, you haven't checked each of these out, by all means, do so!) But maybe you've run into a dead end on your search, or just want to add some great sites to your online shopping circuit. If so, read on to find a list of stores to add into your rotation. The best part? You don't even have to leave the house to shop at any of them!

    Zara Home

    Like all things fast fashion, you can't exactly rely on Zara Home for high-quality, last-forever pieces. However, when your home could use a little pick-me-up (not unlike your wardrobe, from time to time) they have all kinds of affordable finds. We particularly love their bath linens and baskets, which are perfect for storage and display around the house.

    Serena & Lily

    Will all the preppy, classic ladies please stand up? If you love crisp linens, bold-but-timeless colors and all things you might describe as "elegant"—then Serena & Lily is for you. But don't mistake their love of wicker and all things white-and-navy as stuffy or boring. Serena & Lily takes a modern approach to home accessories that could fill an entire home on Nantucket or be amazing, sophisticated décor accents in a funky Brooklyn apartment. It's all in how you style it, right?

    Practical, coastally-inspired and always beautiful—Parachute is where we go for no-nonsense, luxury bedding, linens, tabletop finds and gifts. We love their home accessories because the clean lines, unisex vibes and modern "it all goes together" shopping experience appeals to any kind of home shopper. Basically, whatever kind of design aesthetic you might be going for, you can find the perfect soft touches and sophisticated linens at Parachute.

    Urban Outfitters

    Just because Urban Outfitters labels their home section "apartment" doesn't mean their selection of affordable, somewhat bohemian-leaning décor items won't work in a full-size home. UO offers bedding, lighting, storage and even furniture that suits a youthful approach to design, also perfect for starter homes and yes, apartments. Also keep an eye out and cruise the site frequently for deals—they are almost always having a sale and sooner or later it will include that couch, duvet, lamp or piece of wall art you've had your eye on.

    Fishs Eddy

    New Yorkers in the know know that it's impossible to stop into the Fishs Eddy store in the Flatiron District without buying something. Luckily their online store brings the brand's quirky designs and affordable (yet stylish) tabletop basics to anyone with an internet connection. From the perfect double old fashioned glass to the prettiest cake stands around—there aren't many better places to shop for dishes online.

    West Elm

    We know we shouldn't (because we're free-thinking, smart and savvy shoppers) but sometimes we wonder what it would be like to deck out our entire home in West Elm finds. We love their entire aesthetic—gilded side tables, club-y leather sofas and thoughtful lighting designs. Prices are what we would call "reasonable," since their goods are high-quality and they constantly have great sales going on.

    Last but not-even-a-little-bit least, we had to include the amazing shop page from Dwell magazine. We love to comb through Dwell on a regular basis, searching for the latest design trends and inspiration, plus fun stories about people making waves in décor and home furnishings. But did you know that if you tab over to the magazine's "shop" page, you'll find a unique resource for scouting unusual and unique housewares they sourced from all over the world. Smaller and under-the-radar brands get the spotlight here, and we're obsessed.

    Anthropologie (and Terrain)

    For the home shopper that's graduated beyond Urban Outfitters but hasn't lost their eclectic sense of style, there's Anthropologie and their outdoor-centric sister store, Terrain. From beautifully printed bed linens and those famous "latte bowls" to outdoor dining furniture and funky tableware, these two stores are as aesthetically inspiring as they are insanely shoppable. Prices run the gamut from wildly affordable (plates for $12!) to investment-worthy (full-length mirrors at over $2000).

    One Kings Lane

    Whether we want an affordable night stand or major home décor inspiration, One Kings Lane is often our first stop. While you can find tons of modern and contemporary buys, it's OKL's selection of vintage art, furnishings and more that keep us coming back time and time again. They do an absolutely masterful job of merchandising their best pieces into themes, locations and stories, allowing you, the shopper, to build an entire dream room around just a few pieces. Due to the huge variety of what OKL sells, their prices also run the gamut.

    Joss & Main

    A sister company of Wayfair, Dwell Studio, Allmodern and more, it's no wonder that we included flash sale site Joss & Main on this list. And while yes, certain sales come around that make this site particularly enticing, they have a constant and ever-updating collection of home goods that are always well-priced.
