When it was first unveiled, there was an element of surprise associated with the home-related finds at Urban Outfitters. Most people had been aware of this brand before, of course, as a place for trendy clothes and knickknacks, but never for something like bed linens or even a sofa. That's why it was so exciting, years ago, when Urban Outfitters introduced home products. Suddenly Urban Outfitters became just as well known for its budget-friendly furnishings and accessories as it had been for its effortlessly cool fashion.

All types of sleek furnishes can be found here—from perennially chic chairs to variegated glassware—and most things come in a number of options.

This mega retailer is home to Drew Barrymore's Flower Home collection, which merges the midcentury modern and boho aesthetics with a touch of whimsy and irreverence. Bright colors and bold patterns prevail, while furnishings are a modern take on classic silhouettes.
Urban Outfitters has come to embody a certain wayward traveler persona to its home items—as if its ideal shopper is also someone who furnishes a home with items collected from throughout the world. The Citizenry takes that lived-in look further by actually sourcing its products globally. The company finds artisans from various faraway locales, like India, Morocco, and Vietnam, and sells their collections of vibrant and comfortable goods. There's a wide array of items to choose from, but the textiles and side chairs are best-sellers.

Aside from its much-buzzed-about pendants, Schoolhouse Electric also sells furniture, hardware, and accessories that'll give a home a highbrow finish.
MoMA Design Store
Speaking of highbrow, that's probably an adjective that can come to mind when describing modern art. But as it turns out, the MoMA Design Store is also known for its fun, daring, and all-around delightful pieces, which range from colorful rugs and modern seating to bright accessories and entertaining tech. Consider this home option if you're looking for guests to ask you where you found a certain exciting item.
