Best Places to Buy Home Decor Online

The Spruce / Sabrina Jiang

Your home is your personal sanctuary, so it's important to design it in a way that suits your style (and needs) best. While finding a comfortable couch and stylish dining table may seem simple, the real magic is in the decorative details.

Whether you love a glam look or want to create a calming oasis, there are several retailers that make it easy to find the perfect pieces to finish your space. From vintage to modern and everything in between, we researched the best places to buy home decor and evaluated them based on their affordability, delivery options, inventory size, aesthetics, and business practices. Our top picks include direct-to-consumer model Parachute, contemporary and stylish CB2, and Wayfair, which has a diverse range of products at a friendly price,

Here, the best places to buy home decor.

Wayfair

Wayfair

What We Like
  • Budget-friendly

  • Diverse inventory

  • High quality products

What We Don't Like
  • Confusing product assembly instructions

  • Shipping delays

Wayfair should be your go-to shop when you want to shave a bit off your budget. From headboards and lighting to outdoor furniture and rugs—plus almost anything else you can think of—Wayfair has it. Many of their pieces have the look of designer furniture available at a fraction of the cost, and the retailer almost always has a big sale going on. Some of our favorite pieces from Wayfair are the Bungalow Rose Oriental Handmade Tufted Wool Area Rug, which has a durable backing, attractive design, and is made of thick material, and the Lark Manor Raspberry Rolled Arm Sofa Bed, which is made from genuine leather upholstery and features a decently supportive mattress. In testing, we especially enjoyed the high end look of the Lark Manor sofa bed, which completely disguises its secondary purpose as a pull-out sleeping spot. 

You can find Wayfair products nestled into practically every roundup in our home decor section. Keep in mind that certain products from Wayfair may take longer to ship, especially items from their custom upholstery line, or larger items like mattresses and closet systems. In addition to home decor, Wayfair is a great place to shop for major appliance brands Whirlpool, Café, and LG.

“Wayfair offers free in-home delivery for this sectional [the Inifini Furnishings Reversible Sectional Sofa], and it usually ships in 24 hours. Assembly can be added for an additional price…”

Some of our favorite products from Anthropologie include the Audrina Woven Leather Mirror, the Nifty Napkins, and the Moroccan Wedding Pouf.

CB2

CB2 Novo Acrylic Folding Table

CB2

What We Like
  • More affordable than Crate & Barrel

  • Modern design

  • Generous return policy

What We Don't Like
  • Limited U.S. locations

The younger sibling of Crate & Barrel, CB2 is truly just a touch less traditional and slightly more affordable than the original brand.

In addition to the quality of their products, they also offer a generous 90 day return policy on all non-furniture items. 

The CB2 Novo Acrylic Folding Table stands out as one of our favorite products for its impressive craftsmanship and stylish appearance that could easily serve as a permanent piece of furniture in your home.

IKEA

IKEA FADO Table Lamp

IKEA

What We Like
  • Affordable pieces

  • Minimalist design

  • Large inventory

What We Don't Like
  • Expensive shipping on large items

  • Vague or confusing assembly instructions

IKEA’s iconic affordable approach to Swedish minimalism continues to be a popular choice for first-time homeowners and renters. Whether you shop online to browse their expansive inventory or visit one of their stores—with a side of Swedish meatballs at the end—you won’t leave empty-handed or disappointed in your experience. Just beware that shipping can be expensive for big-ticket items like beds and furniture.

It’s also important to note that most of IKEA’s furniture pieces require assembly, and the directions can be confusing. The FADO Table Lamp with LED Bulb is a great bedside table lamp option if you’re looking for soft lighting with a minimalist design. A toggle switch on the cord makes it easy to turn on and off when you’re ready to wind down for bed.

Their Sven sofa is easy to assemble, plus its deep cushion and 88-inch-long option is great for lounging comfortably. 

But don't miss Article's other offerings—their nightstands, console tables, outdoor furniture, and accent chairs are also worth browsing. The Article Natica Gray Rug is a great indoor-outdoor rug that would fit under a bistro dining table or accent any seating area.

Pottery Barn

Pottery Barn Faux Fur Alpaca Throw

Pottery Barn

What We Like
  • Quality products

  • Free or express shipping on certain items

  • Free interior design consultations

What We Don't Like
  • Expensive

Another member of the Williams-Sonoma brand family, Pottery Barn has been furnishing homes across the U.S. for over 70 years. Its sister brands Pottery Barn Kids and PB Teen allow every age group to find decor and furniture that speaks to their personal style. In addition to offering a variety of quality-made products, Pottery Barn also has an experienced team of designers that give free consultations to work with customers on bringing their personal vision to life. 

One of our home testers tried out the Pottery Barn Faux Alpaca Throw and its appreciated its light weight and soft texture. However, she did note that it was difficult to dry and that it wasn’t quite large enough to use as a full body blanket. As with most of Pottery Barn’s inventory, you also pay a hefty price for the brand’s name and reputation.

The picture frame section of Target is especially convenient not only for its variety but also for its cost effective options.

One Kings Lane

One Kings Lane Moroccan Whimsy Wallpaper

One Kings Lane

What We Like
  • Vintage items available

  • Diverse styles in inventory

  • Frequent sales

What We Don't Like
  • No price adjustments

There are so many ways to shop at One Kings Lane. You can browse online by themes like Parisian Chic, American Classic, or Hotel Luxe, as well as search by room, brand, or the more traditional way: items and groupings. Along with stylish new items, One Kings Lane also carries an impressive variety of vintage pieces.

Although One Kings Lane does offer frequent sales, they do not accommodate price adjustments on sale items that you may have purchased prior to their price drop. We’re particularly fond of the Moroccan Whimsy Wallpaper in Greenwich Green and White because of its quality and sustainable materials. It’s also available in several other color combinations.

West Elm

West Elm Modern Weave Rattan Baskets

West Elm

What We Like
  • High quality products offered at reasonable prices

  • Sustainable options available

  • Delivery and in-store pickup

What We Don't Like
  • Some back-ordered products can take months to arrive

  • Pricier than competitors

For furniture with a mid-century modern look, West Elm should be your go-to. Along with keep-forever furniture pieces, West Elm also carries high-quality bed linens and statement-making lighting, much of which features exposed bulbs and brass fixtures. Our favorite products include the 400-Thread-Count Organic Cotton Percale Sheet Set, the Cotton Canvas Pouf, and the Modern Weave Rattan Harvest Basket

We also love that West Elm is a vendor for several small businesses. If mid-century modern design isn’t your taste, then West Elm may not be the best home decor brand for you. West Elm also has sales throughout the year and often offers free shipping if you keep an eye on deals.

What to Look for in Home Decor

Price

Home decor is offered at a wide range of prices. In some cases, it can be sold affordably, but in other instances, pieces may be more of an investment. You will want to determine what items you need for your home right away and what items make sense to save up for over time, as purchasing decorative objects for an entire home can be quite pricey, no matter where you shop.

Style

Do you prefer glam accents, or is your style more boho? Are you a minimalist or a maximalist? Determining your personal style is a key component to shopping for home decor. You will want to go into your search with a clear sense of your aesthetic and decorating goals so that you don't end up wasting money on items that you'll tire of a few months down the line.

Lead Time

While some home decor websites can ship furniture and accents within just a few days, others require several weeks of lead time—if not longer. Consider how quickly you will need your items and how long you are willing to wait for pieces, even if they are not essentials.

Material

Home decor can be made from plastic, or it might be quite fragile. If you have young children or host guests frequently, you may wish to opt for pieces that aren't so precious. If you live alone and take good care of your belongings, go ahead and purchase that delicate vase or sculpture.
