Spring travel, bar crawls, and other typical recreational expenditures may not be in your immediate future, but perhaps a little bit of retail therapy can help ease your quarantine boredom. You can’t see it or touch it in person, but ordering furniture online is easier than ever nowadays, with lots of places offering free (or at least reasonable) returns. Best of all, it’ll help you scratch that itch for a fresh start.
Here are 10 great places to find home furnishings in virtually every style you can imagine:
In times like this, skipping the big retailers and buying directly from small businesses is especially appreciated. Etsy is a great place to find unique furniture and home accessories, including vintage pieces like original Eames chairs and handmade tables made of reclaimed wood, like this one by Umbuzo Rustic.
Their stores may be temporarily closed, but West Elm is still open for business online, with free shipping on orders over $75. Their couches are especially beloved by fans of well-made contemporary furniture, and since you’re likely spending a lot of time in your living room right now, why not upgrade? Pictured here is the Dekalb leather sectional in the color “molasses.”
Bringing in a little bit of a global influence, World Market offers furniture collections with themes like “Modern Boho,” “Family-Style Farmhouse,” “Urban Loft,” and “Mid-Century Hip.” And while you’re buying furniture, you might as well check out their extensive international food offerings as well, which you can usually tack onto your order.
Carrying a huge range of international designers and brands, Wayfair is almost guaranteed to have whatever you’re looking for at a great price. Pictured here is the Lampkins Standard Configurable Bedroom Set by Alcott Hill.
Lulu & Georgia
Interior designers love this carefully curated collection of furniture and decor. Lulu & Georgia features lots of gorgeous pieces in both the affordable and high-end categories, and their offerings always feel up-to-the-minute without being overly trendy.
Another designer favorite (and one that tends to fly a little bit under the radar), Jayson Home is packed with items you simply won’t find at bigger name retailers. Based in Chicago, this is one of those shops you book a flight just to browse in person (and they normally offer complimentary home stylist appointments to help you choose!) — but online shopping will certainly do for now.
Don’t sleep on Anthropologie’s furniture section, even if their clothes aren’t your style. They tend to have a rotating selection of standout pieces that will make your guests literally gasp when they see them, and now they offer Afterpay as an online payment option, so you can buy now and split up the payments over time.
Looking to upgrade your home office? Check out LexMod, which offers both free shipping and financing via Klarna. Prices are extremely competitive for pieces that look high-end, like the Sector Office Desk in white gold.
Crate & Barrel’s hipper sibling CB2 is a great place to find the latest, greatest spring and summer styles to make the most of staying at home (for however long your state or country might require). Check out their “Spring Statements” sale for tons of finishing touches to elevate your space.
One Kings Lane
If your taste runs a little more toward the traditional side, but with a fresh, contemporary feel, this retailer is well worth a browse. Their outdoor furniture is especially tempting, offering classic-looking pieces like the Frances Chaise in black and white stripe, the Aya Pagoda Fringe patio umbrella, and the Frances side table in black and antiqued gold.
