While I'm pretty resourceful when it comes to finding statement pieces for my home, I'll admit that I made my mind up about Urban Outfitters a long time ago. I'd always viewed the brand as synonymous with dorm décor and bohemian finds, and given that my personal style is sleek and minimal, I overlooked it. But when I browsed the site a few weeks ago, I started to stumble across some hidden gems. First, it was a beveled mirror that looked like it had been plucked straight from the walls of Hotel Panache in Paris. Then I came across a sheet metal coffee table that would look right at home in a fashion blogger's loft.
It turns out the brand has grown up a lot since I last checked, and now it's the first place I turn to for affordable décor. Take a peek at the 13 best buys currently sitting in my cart—there's nothing boho about these sleek, bold finds.
