Best Websites for Buying Furniture Online

Since launched in October 2010, our network of freelance interior design professionals have recommended hundreds of interior products to homeowners all across the U.S. Since designers can suggest products from any retailer of their choosing, we’ve reviewed all of their past recommendations then scoured retailer websites to identify the best places to buy furniture online. Here’s the resulting websites and the reasons we picked each one.


Best Contemporary Furniture

With only 8 physical locations in the U.S. and Canada, many of us are missing out on this Crate & Barrel spinoff store featuring simple, contemporary furniture often available in bold, bright colors. The easy to use website shows each product from several different views and used in an actual room, so you always know exactly what you’re getting and how you can use it. Best for: cheering up a tired space.

CB2 Website


Most Accessible Designer Furniture

2Modern features furniture pieces from many of today’s top modern designers and is an authorized dealer for furniture companies like Flos and Kartell that traditionally have sold only through interior design professionals. Best of all, 2Modern features free shipping on orders over $50. Best for: getting designer furniture shipped straight to your door without jumping through any hoops.

Restoration Hardware

Best Traditional Furniture

Even though Restoration Hardware has over 100 retail locations, their website is one of the best places to check out their furniture collections, which draw upon styles that have endured for centuries. The Room Gallery feature allows you to see inspiring images of fully decorated rooms and then click on furniture pieces with your mouse for more details. Best for: time-tested style in neutral tones.

Best Classic Modern Furniture

YLiving is a web-based retailer that sells classic mid-century modern furniture pieces by designers such as Charles and Ray Eames (Eames Chair), Eero Saarinen (Saarinen Chair), Isamu Noguchi (Noguchi Table) and Mies van der Rohe (Barcelona Chair). Like 2Modern, YLiving is a dealer for many of the major designer furniture companies like Herman Miller and Knoll and also carries contemporary designs.


Best Hand-Crafted Furniture

Etsy is the online shop for all things handmade, including furniture. The furniture available runs the gamut in terms of price but it is all unique and hand-crafted. Among other things, Etsy is a great place to find reclaimed furniture products and woodwork. Also visit the West Elm Etsy page to check out Etsy designers featured by the major furniture retailer West Elm. Best for: unique hand-crafted character.

Best Bargain Deals

The (a.k.a. website helps retailers liquidate excess products, passing along discounts to you in the process. With discounts of between 10 to 50% on everything, you can often find great pieces for less than you’d pay anywhere else. The site can be a bit overwhelming at first because it features furniture of all different design styles, but various search categories on the left side of the site let you narrow down the possibilities by brand, type, etc. The one downside is that if you don’t buy right way the inventory of the product you liked may sell out. This makes it hard to plan ahead for something you’re looking to buy in a month or more. Best for: getting a bargain deal at the time you’re ready to buy.


Most Philanthropic

2% of Bontanist sales benefit a foundation chosen by the designer of the furniture piece. With 18 participating designers, Botantist supports 18 foundations including DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids), Green Dot Public Schools, the Starkey Hearing Foundation, Architecture for Humanity, the Cancer Research Institute and the Surfrider Foundation, among others. Best for: unique furniture that makes a difference.

Walmart & Target (Tie)

Most Affordable and

If you’re looking to completely furnish a room, consider finding a few of your furniture pieces or accessories from Target or Walmart to lower how much you are spending overall. An end table or TV console from a discount retailer often works just as well as a more expensive one. Both Target and Walmart tend to have a more extensive selection of furniture online than you’ll find at your local store.
Best for: adding the finishing touches to a room without breaking the bank.
