52 Best Online Furniture Stores to Bookmark Now (2024)

The best online furniture stores have a few things in common: The stock is relatively large, there’s a bit of variety, and there’s more than a touch of style. The problem is that there are so many places to seek out new furniture online—where is a person to start? Hiring someone to work out design services for your space isn’t usually a possibility, so prepare to go on yourself. Luckily, we can help with that: One of our editors’ favorite pastimes is scrolling for new home additions online.

On these sites you’ll find gorgeous furniture and home decor in a wide variety of styles, plus fast (and often free) shipping. Some of these retailers you’d expect to see—Target, IKEA, Crate & Barrel, etc.—but others, like Urban Outfitters and Etsy, might come as a surprise. Read on and discover the 52 best online furniture stores now spanning bestsellers for the bedroom to bathroom storage. Happy shopping!

Shop Our Top Picks:

1. Best Online-Only Furniture Brand: Article

Lenia White Oak 6-Drawer Dresser

The outdoor furniture selection at Article can’t be beat. There’s a huge selection, plus there are plenty of special pieces (think sofas draped in performance fabric with wood frames and woven elements). Although the outdoor furniture sets shouldn’t be missed, there are pieces to fill the entire home—the Nordby sleeper sofa is an editor fave.

2. Best Outdoor Furniture Brand: Castlery

Kelsey Marble Dining Table

Castlery Jonathan Chaise Sectional Sofa

Online shopping is a breeze with Castlery. All the pieces of furniture are organized by room (i.e. bedroom furniture>nightstands, living room furniture>coffee tables, etc.) and can be easily filtered by price point, material, color, size, and more. They have a huge selection with a lot of classic, contemporary, and midcentury-modern pieces. They also have a virtual showroom that lets you “wander” through their actual warehouse. Castlery will send out three free swatches for any product you’re interested in and has a 14-day return policy. We’ve personally tested the Jonathan sofa and the Ingrid arm chair with glowing reviews.

3. Best Budget Furniture Brand: Wayfair

Isley 26.68” Wide Rolling Kitchen Island with Solid Wood Top

AllModern Williams Nightstand

Wayfair has multiple sales going on daily, so you can find everything you could possibly want for the indoors or outdoors for up to 70% off. The brand’s annual Way Day sale, with discounts on thousands of items and a bunch of flash sales, is not to be missed either. All orders for more than $49 ship for free.

4. Best Splurge Furniture Brand: Arhaus

Arhaus (which is German for house) offers high-end, heirloom-quality furniture. They also have a huge selection of unique artisanal decor and lighting solutions. The Kipton sofa, with its easy silhouette and seemingly endless customization options, is another Clever favorite.

5. Best Minimalist Furniture Brand: Maiden Home

Quality pieces abound at Maiden Home. Find seating, tables, rugs, and lighting (all made in the US) in their online storefront—a Clever favorite is the Dune sectional sofa with its delightful slipcovered silo. You can also visit their flagship store in Los Angeles, or their other locations in Austin, Boston, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.

6. Best Upholstery Options: Serena & Lily

Riviera Rattan Dining Chair

Serena & Lily channels calm, coastal vibes that we can’t get enough of. Shop the brand’s collection for deep couches, statement-making end tables, expansive coffee tables, unique console tables, hand-knotted area rugs, striking outdoor dining sets, and so much more.

Anthropologie’s furniture selection is a breath of fresh air, and every time a new collection is unveiled, it’s guaranteed we want something (if not everything) from it. Packed with as much personality as their clothing and decor options, the designs—like the Havana leather chair we reviewed during Seat Week—are made to stand out. Splurge-worthy for sure (we might even recommend waiting to strike when the brand runs one of its famous online furniture sales), it’s also quick and easy to talk to a furniture consultant online about any questions you have as you shop.

Auburn Rectangular Grand Coffee Table

Cayman Platform Bed and Headboard

This mainstay is a household name for a reason. Based in San Francisco as part of the Williams-Sonoma portfolio (alongside West Elm and Rejuvenation), there are many locations you can shop in-store around the world, but Pottery Barn has a huge online selection that puts their collections at your fingertips no matter where you are. Their high-quality furniture ranges from classic to contemporary—and, after nearly a century in business, they’re prioritizing sustainability with initiatives centered on responsibly sourced wood and cotton and recycled fabrics.

Banana Republic’s interior line, BR Home, introduces graceful curves, neutral color palettes, and subtle textures into homes. Despite having a very similar vibe, each piece of the curation has its own distinct personality. This is a good place to start if you’re looking for high-design style without the massive price tag—but be warned, the furniture here is still an investment.

Laura Davidson Furniture Padded Office Chair

Tailia Light Blue Dot Office Chair

You already know Amazon has everything under the sun, but did you know that includes budget-friendly furniture that looks way more expensive than it really is, complete with free delivery?

Amazon is also the exclusive retailer for a few different decor brands, including Rivet, Stone & Beam, Ravenna Home, and, our personal favorite, Now House by Jonathan Adler.

West Elm Kids Groovy Swivel Chair

Dalton 2-Piece Chaise Sectional

Brooklyn-based West Elm, a Williams-Sonoma brand, is obviously a go-to for affordable modern decor, but that’s only part of the store’s appeal. West Elm also sells tons of organic, handcrafted, sustainably sourced, and Fair Trade Certified items. With frequent sales, plus 15% off when you sign up for their emails, you can get even better deals on the selection.

Rove Concepts is the place to shop if you’re looking to mimic the effortlessly chic vibes of your favorite celebrity’s home. The furniture sets in particular are worth checking out, as most are made up of pieces that look just as sleek alone as they do clustered together in a room.

In addition to furniture, they also have a solid selection of rugs and lighting to finish a space.

Block Nomad Leather Sofa with Ottoman

One of the things we love most about Burrow is its infinitely customizable furniture. You can choose, for example, a couch or chair and then customize the fabric color, leg finish, arm style, and whether or not the pillows are tufted. With all these options, it’s easy to get exactly what you want. Did we mention Burrow offers free shipping on all orders? Sounds good to us.

The Two-Drawer Nightstand

Sometimes bedroom furniture doesn’t need to scream “conversation starter!” This is where Thuma comes into the picture. Known for its luxe bedding and mattresses, the brand also makes a small selection of bedroom furniture. The designs include bed frames, nightstands, and storage options, each in simple wood finishes and sleek silhouettes.

Highlights include bed frames, coffee tables, children’s furniture, and the Neva Chaise Sectional design editor Zoë Sessums called “One of the most comfy couches I’ve spent time on in a while.”

Sixpenny Neva Chaise Sectional

Sixpenny Aria Leather Sofa

Endlessly adaptable and incredibly easy to clean, the Clever-approved Lovesac Sactional is just one piece from the brand that’ll transform your home into a cozy oasis. With three different base pieces (the Sectional seat, Wedge seat, and Storage seat) that can be configured into just about any seating arrangement, you can really have it all—from a full living room set to an extra-large U-shaped sectional. Looking for something that fits an even more relaxed vibe? We recommend checking out an ultra-comfy Sac, which can seat anywhere from one to four people.

Kartell Colonna Side Table

For both iconic designs and one-offs from emerging designers, check out the MoMA Design Store.

Hay is fun. There’s no other way to describe what it has to offer. Hay may lack variety of styles—its products go from bold and quirky sofa shapes to spaghetti-inspired lounge chairs—but it definitely makes it up in strong color and design options. Particularly with the outdoor furniture, the silhouettes may lean classic, but elements like hole-punch tabletops and wavy benches will give your space just the kick it needs.

Jive Desk with Post Leg, Color Pop Collection

There is a lot of cool stuff on Schoolhouse’s webpage, but we’re partial to the stools. Hear us out: You’d be surprised how handy a stool can be. They serve as seating at a party where one too many guests bring a plus one, or to stack books on them for a cozy little decor moment (or a reminder to read something from your growing stack of to-be-read), or to reach a tall spot above the refrigerator. The stools from Schoolhouse come in bright colors (think, candy apple red) and will look great when not in use. Make sure to check out the rest of the inventory too. It’s all worth a look.

Options are a beautiful thing.

What to consider before making an online furniture purchase:

But before you go all in on something, there are a couple of things you’ll want to keep in mind during your search. First up: measure, measure, measure. Testing out furniture IRL is great but not always possible. The last thing you want is to fall in love with something online only to find out it won’t fit through your front door or in the nook it was meant to inhabit. On that note, make sure to measure the package as well—the box will add a couple of inches that you’ll have to account for.

In addition to measuring, consider if you’re going to want this piece of furniture to travel with you from home to home. If you’re working with a larger budget and consider the furniture you’re seeking out to be an investment piece of sorts, you may not want to lean completely into a trending color or texture—such as a hot pink corduroy couch. And we have nothing against hot pink corduroy couches (we love them), but you may not be as into the bold statement in 10 years as you are now. Consider this food for thought.

With two of the biggest considerations out of the way, go forth and seek out that ottoman or couch you’ve been thinking about for years.
