The sister company to Wayfair, AllModern features pricier pieces, leaning more towards modern furniture (hence its name). Here, you’ll find a wide array of classic mid-century modern-style wares that’ll have people wondering just where you got that from. With so many brands and products under its roof, the quality varies, but you can always fall back on the ample customer reviews to guide your hand.

What Wayfair lacks in overall cool factor, it makes up for in inventory. Scroll through plenty of furniture basics, plus appliances, organization, and even remodeling supplies for the DIY-inclined. Similarly to Amazon, the sheer number of products can be a beast to navigate, so we’d recommend starting with one of the site’s curated sub brands like AllModern.

Beige is king at Arhaus’ contemporary design haven, where you can surface elevated gems for every room in the house.

Best For: Made-to-order heritage sofas
Most furniture industry folks will let you in on the secret that the best American furniture is handmade in North Carolina. Maiden Home works directly with these expert workshops to bring you luxury quality sofas at a significantly lower price. The styles are also meant to last with designs that nicely bridge modern and classic style.
Best For: Attractive furniture with great prices and fast shipping
A lot of companies talk about “cutting out the middleman” to give customers a better product at a lower price, but Article is one of those rare brands that actually seems to have made that happen with modern pieces that you won’t find at other competitors like Ikea or Wayfair. The designs are all sleek and trend-forward—from sculptural tables to stackable seating—at prices you can wrap your head around, and maybe the fastest shipping on the block (because they run their own warehousing and logistics, most orders arrive in two weeks or less).
