1. Artifox

Calling all minimalists! Artifox is known for minimal yet functional style. This online-only shop offers solid hardwood desk, tables, shelves, lighting, benches and even the occasional wooden bike rack. Everything is designed to work seamlessly with your electronics, making this St. Louis-based company especially popular with the work from home set. 

2. Design Within Reach

With showrooms across the country and a vast online store, Design Within Reach offers a can’t-go-wrong approach. Everything is carefully curated to fit a modern aesthetic, and if you’re not sure where to begin — or are overwhelmed with all your options — they offer complimentary design services in store, in your home or via virtual live chat. 

3. Jonathan Adler

The eponymous Jonathan Adler brand is known for its bold color choices, conversation-starting accessories and glamorous aesthetic. Whether you want to spruce up your decor with just a few vibrant pieces or are going full glam, the Jonathan Adler website is simply bursting with options. Choose from furniture, rugs, lighting, bedding, arts, accessories and even pottery — the medium where Jonathan Adler himself got his start. 

4. Castlery

Channeling your inner Don Draper? Castlery is a haven for Mid-Century Modern design, with clean lines, geometric shapes and the effortless combining of mixed materials. Castlery is a direct-to-consumer brand, which means they oversee the entire build, ship and delivery process. Not sure what you’re looking for? They offer free swatches so you can see what a fabric will look like in your space. 

5. Interior Define

Interior Define appeals to hands-on home decorators who want complete control over their purchase. The site offers the ultimate in customization, with over 20 collections of furniture pieces, over 125 fabrics and more than 20 leg choices. You can even customize the length and depth of your furniture and choose your seat cushions. Free design services and 3D visualizations are an added help when you’re not quite sure about your choices. 

6. Lulu and Georgia 

Don’t let the cute name fool you — Lulu and Georgia is seriously sophisticated. Because they work with a wide range of designers and feature exclusive collaborations, they offer furnishings and one-of-a-kind vintage items for a wide range of design styles. Exclusively online, Lulu and Georgia has everything from wallpaper to outdoor furniture and sofas to barware. 

7. 1st Dibs 

Go green with 1st Dibs. Less a traditional furniture brand and more an online marketplace for design lovers, the site allows trusted sellers to offer vintage, antique and one-of-a-kind pieces through direct purchase or auction scenarios. Because of the wide range of products and styles in the marketplace, 1st Dibs appeals to those who enjoy hunting for something specific or delight in discovering something unexpected. No matter what you find, you’ll love knowing that wonderful pieces are getting a second chance to be loved and used. 

8. MasayaCo

The town of Masaya, Nicaragua, has long been a hub for artisans and handicrafts vendors. It’s also the home of MasayaCo, a design company that offers a unique collection of furnishings handmade from renewable hardwoods and crafted in Nicaragua. Their best-known products are hardwood armchairs, featuring a variety of handwoven patterns on the back and seat. 

9. Sunvilla Home 

When it comes time to furnish your outdoor space, check out Sunvilla Home. This California- and Florida-based furnishings company is dedicated to outdoor seating, dining tables, umbrellas and fire pits. To ensure every piece can stand up to the elements, they use materials like marine-grade rust-proof aluminum, handmade wicker and Italian-made performance fabrics that resist staining and fading. The brand also stands out for its 10-year warranty. 

10. Arhaus

In stark contrast with the “fast furniture” movement, Arhaus was founded in 1986 with the goal of creating heirloom-quality furniture that is sustainably sourced. Today, they continue that mission by partnering with artisans who use reclaimed and recycled materials whenever possible. At Arhaus, you’ll find furniture pieces for every room in the house, all with a clean, modern aesthetic, yet with enough classic styling to endure shifting trends. 

11. Sundays

As the name implies, the design aesthetic at Sundays is relaxed, warm and welcoming — think boucle loveseats, upholstered beds and solid reclaimed oak tables. The company is based in Vancouver, British Columbia, but ships to the United States and offers free swatches. Need to touch and feel before buying? They recently opened their first U.S. showroom in Seattle. 

12. Knoll

Since 1938, Knoll has been collaborating with some of the top modern furniture designers in the world. Today, you can shop these collections online, searching by room or designer — Mies van der Rohe or Eero Saarinen, anyone? In addition to the wide selection of mostly Mid-Century Modern home furnishings, Knoll has an impressive collection of work from home furniture pieces, including desks, work chairs, lighting, storage and accessories. 

13. Kelly Wearstler 

Give your home the look and feel of your favorite high-end hotel with furnishings from Kelly Wearstler. This American designer has furnished everything from the Viceroy Hotels and Residences to the Four Seasons, and you can buy pieces from her collection online. Her furnishings are highly textural, feature geometric patterns and make ample use of stone. 

14. Croft House

For California-chic decor, look no further than Croft House. Designs are bright and airy, making use of woods like birch and alder, plus cream upholstery, to reflect natural light. Because every piece is handmade in the company’s Los Angeles workroom, there are endless opportunities for customization. Change the leather on an armchair. Reconfigure the drawers in an armoire. Extend the length of a sofa to perfectly fit your living room. 

15. Tov

Once you’ve decided on all your core furniture pieces, check out Tov for conversation-starting accessories. While the woman-owned brand does offer furniture, it’s the accessories that really stand out. Choose from lighting, mirrors, wall art, throw pillows, blankets, vases and bookends, many of which showcase an inventive use of metallics, beads and fabrics.  

16. RH

Formerly known as Restoration Hardware, RH offers high-quality designs and effortless style. Perhaps their most famous piece is the Cloud sofa, which they tout as the world’s most comfortable sofa. It has a relaxed silhouette with a low back and broad arms. Simply put, it’s designed so you’ll sink right in. They also offer stylish collections of bedroom furniture, plus enough outdoor furniture to outfit all of your al fresco space. 

17. Perigold 

Instead of offering products from one designer or a singular in-house design team, Perigold is a platform where you can shop a wide selection of upscale design brands, including Soicher Marin, Lalique, Kartell, Flos and Theodore Alexander. In addition to furniture, Perigold has rugs, wallpaper, lighting and accessories. Expert design services are also available. 

18. Maiden Home 

Maiden Home pairs the heritage techniques of North Carolina furniture artisans with a New York-based design studio. The outcome is chic, stylish furniture pieces with a meticulous attention to detail and long-lasting craftsmanship. From sofas and ottomans to dining tables and beds, every piece is made by hand with luxury materials. Design advice is available via email, phone or video call, and you can even take advantage of free services like design boards, floor plans and new home consultations.  

19. Floyd

Founded on Kickstarter in 2013, Floyd started by selling table legs that would allow customers to turn found surface material into a table. Today, they’re a full-fledged furniture company, but their philosophy has remained the same: Furniture should be well designed, long lasting, and evolving — for example, the Floyd Bed can adapt to fit multiple mattress sizes. Their sleek, modular sectional is endlessly configurable and comes in 19 colors, from muted to bold. 

20. Eternity Modern

A darling of design magazines, influencers and interior designers, Eternity Modern sells super-modern home furnishings that truly stand out. Their most well-known piece is the Mario Bellini sofa. It's a modular, bubble-shaped sofa that can be configured to fit any space — and it always stands out. Need to see it in person before you buy? They have an appointment-only showroom in Irvine, California.
