The Best Furniture Stores in NYC for Every Budget



Furniture Stores in New York City

Today I realized it’s been over a year since I moved into my apartment solo and it feels great.

Before I always had a revolving door of roommates and different random pieces of furniture so I never really felt like I could decorate.. plus I was on the tightest budget possible.

Now that I have a place that’s all my own, I’ve slowly filled it up with furniture and accessories that fit my style (although to be honest, I’m still figuring out what exactly my style is) and that fit my wallet! 

I’ve shopped everywhere, from higher end to budget and wanted to share a couple of my favorite home stores.





Or pin this post for later:






The Best NYC Furniture Stores




CB 2

I love CB2’s kitchenware in particular. They have gorgeous marble pieces, cocktail glasses and serving platters. I also really like their furniture, like this modern sleigh bed and in general they focus on modern furniture.

Occasionally, they’ll do fun celebrity collaborations and they also have a “studio” which produces apartment sized furniture.

Crate & Barrel

There’s one massive flagship in Soho featuring two floors of interior design goodness.

The first floor stocks kitchenware, appliances and storage containers while the second floor has living room + bedroom furniture.

Amazon Home

Lately, it feels like Amazon is expanding into everything.

Their furniture though, is actually great for the price! We’ve bought a couple velvet bed frames through Amazon (this grey one and this navy one) and been happy with the quality for the cost.

In particular, check out Rivet for mid-century modern, Stone & Beam for comfy traditional and Ravenna for classic decor. Amazon Home even has a Dorm collection and a collaboration with Jonathan Adler!

Boho meets bougie. I love to check in on Anthropologie online to see their home & kitchen section although there are select stores in NYC that carry home pieces including Rockefeller Center and Chelsea Market.

Best for: cute kitchen flatware, bowls & mugs; statement rugs and mirrors; velvet couches and daybeds. If you love color, pattern and whimsical, this is the home store for you.

West Elm

I always like to pop into West Elm for their accessories.

They have lots of great dinnerware and flatware – from classic white plates, glam stuff for a new year’s eve dinner, retro Italian coffee cups etc. They have centerpieces, dessert plates, napkin rings etc too.

I’ve been eyeing their container storage ceramics for things like coffee, tea and flour forever – West Elm can be a little bit pricier but has frequent sales. West Elm is the more contemporary sister brand to Pottery Barn and William Sonoma Home.

Pottery Barn

I love Pottery Barn for their holiday decor, candle holders and bed/bath furniture.

I bought my bed frame here as I was looking specifically for a tufted, higher back frame of high quality. If you want the tufted bed frame look without a huge price tag, check out any of the online sites.

If you want really beautiful fabric that covers the full front and back, buy it from Pottery Barn. They also assemble which was very helpful. Pottery Barn sister brands include William Sonoma Home and West Elm.

Best Home Furniture Store H&M Home


H&M Home

If you thought H&M only had clothes, you’re missing out!

I love H&M for trendy home decor, like bath and kitchen accessories. I’m always picking up cute jars, plates and canisters for kitchen storage and switching out my sheets way too often because their bedding sets are so affordable.

They have a huge, constantly rotating selection of new home accessories and the full selection is online. I find the quality to be decent for the price but HM Home also has a premium collection as well as an eco-conscious line.

In NYC, you can head to their 5th avenue store to shop their home stuff.

H&M Home



One Kings Lane

One Kings Lane is primarily an online website (shop it here) with one of a kind pieces and great deals but if you ever want some help with designing your rooms, pop by their studio for a 1 on 1 consult.

One Kings Lane switches up the decor every season or so so you’ll always have new interior inspo to look forward to! The loft space only houses a small curated selection. For full stock, shop One Kings Lane online.

Best Home Furniture Store Target Home



Target carries affordable, stylish furniture as well as a full range of bed, bath & dining accessories.

In particular, they carry sofas and furniture for different styles (beachy, mid century modern, industrial, farmhouse) and for every room – patio, nursery, teen, living, bath, etc.

They also have a good selection of products sized for small spaces! I pop in to their Tribeca store to check out the new nick knacks, but the full selection is only shoppable online.


 Shop Now: 




Jonathan Adler

There are a number of physical Jonathan Adler stores in New York and I always love popping in to see what’s new. He specializes in “pop culture-y” kind of furniture – think bright colors, modern shapes and fun quirky accents.

I absolutely love his reading chairs and bar carts but am saving up as they’re currently out of my budget!

Jonathan Adler








Arhaus is where I got my comfortable yet chic blue velvet couch.

They make gorgeous home pieces similar to Restoration Hardware and Anthropologie and at approximately the same price point. I recommend their couches and bed frames in particular!



Design Within Reach

This oxymoron-ly named design store features modern furniture beloved by new yorkers.


 Shop Now: 

Design Within Reach







Dwell Studio

Dwell features a warm, modern interior that will satisfy both classic design lovers and those who prefer modern pieces.

I love their safari animal figurines and their understated but luxurious couches and coffee tables. Unfortunately, I think they recently shuttered their Soho store.

Also check out sister brands Wayfair Joss & Main.




Allswell makes stylish mattresses in a box. 

You can order online and get it shipped right to your door in days. We ordered a king size to try out and it didn’t disappoint (read our in depth review here).

We also love their Turkish style waffle bath towels and organic bedding! We have the bed basics set and the combination of a plush mattress pad and down duvet insert completely transformed our bed into that of a luxury hotel.

Apt 2B makes simple but stylish furniture for small spaces. Think East Coast cool with a little bit of West Coast flavor.

Much of their furniture can do double duty – like sleeper sofas and beds with storage – making it a great furniture store for small space living.

Apt 2B



Ashley Homestore

Ashley Homestore has an outlet in Brooklyn but you can order from the main store online.

They have a huge selection of furniture, decor, mattresses and even outdoor and baby items. They’re quite similar to Raymour – they have furniture in every price point and style so they’re worth browsing.

Bed Bath & Beyond

Bed Bath & Beyond is a staple. They sell everything from kitchen gadgets to bath mats, bedding to cleaning supplies.

While you won’t find tons of large furniture, you can easily pick up all the small furniture and storage items to keep your NYC place tidy! We find their shoe storage, bath caddys and curtain rods really handy.

Bed Bath & Beyond



The Container Store

The Container Store is another goodie. Pop into their flagship for a storage mecca.

We have their Elfa system to maximize every inch of our tiny closets and love their jewelry and makeup storage.

Most NYC apartments don’t have enough closet space, especially when you have roommates, so their under-the-bed clothing boxes and containers are great for keeping out of season items clean and out of sight!

The Container Store








Brooklinen carries all sorts of comfy, luxurious sheets at an affordable price point. Whether you like linen, percale or Egyptian cotton, they have premium bedding at a great price.

Brooklinen’s also branched out into lounge wear, towels and blankets.

Home Depot

Home Depot has all the handy tools for when your furniture needs fixing.

Their tile, faucet and cabinets are a great option for bath and kitchen renovations. Live in a rental and want to make a small but noticeable change? Pick up some cabinet hardware and door knobs!

ABC Carpet & Home

For your upper east sider or mega yuppie, ABC is the place for 7 floors of high end fixtures, furniture and flatware. I like to come here for some inspiration and to browse the gorgeous wall of Astier de Villatte ceramics.

Sadly, have yet to purchase anything here but my wallet thanks me.




BDDW is a beautiful, airy space that highlights designer Tyler’s one of a kind furniture pieces. Come here for beautifully crafted wood furniture and metal / hardware consoles.







Ethan Allen

I just visited the Ethan Allen store recently and loved the understated, easy luxury of all the pieces. The store spans two large floors on the UES and offers a number of customization options for fabrics and furniture.

For anyone with kids, they have a number of baby and child rooms and recently launched a Disney collaboration which I thought was adorable.



Fishs Eddy


Fishs Eddy is a quirky dishware and kitchen supply shop that got its start scrounging for unwanted items at the restaurant supply stores on Bowery.

Come here for iconic NYC skyline dinnerware and mugs.







Gracious Home


$$$ | 2 locations | Upper East Side – 1220 Third Ave | Upper West Side – 1992 Broadway








Everyone knows Ikea!

When I first graduated college, everything I had was Ikea and although it was a pain to put together it was a great price and very solid quality.

They have great inexpensive kitchen accessories (I bought a coffee milk frother here for $2 or so), herb jars / container type things, faux fur rugs, things like that!



Ligne Roset

This classic French design stores has beautiful modern furniture that’s both highly functional and quirky. I love the muted color palette.

$$$ | 2 Locations | Midtown – 250 Park Ave S | Soho – 155 Wooster St








Muji’s flagship location on 5th ave stocks its Japanese minimalist home wares. Grab mini containers for travel, re-organize your closet with their organization systems or stock up on home office supplies. You can also browse and shop online here.

| Midtown – 475 Fifth Ave




$$$ | Soho – 462 Broome St

$$$$ | Little Italy – 11 Howard St



Restoration Hardware

For a long time, I wanted my apartment to be a walking RH catalog. They build these massive “concept stores” in large cities and literally everything in them is drool worthy… but not at all made for the tight confines of the average NYC apartment. I did save up to buy some items here like my bed nightstands and a couch.

I give RH a huge thumbs up in the design department but wasn’t too impressed with the furniture quality. It definitely is pricey and originally I bought a bedroom chest but the drawers didn’t have soft close and kept arriving with nicks so if you really love the design spring for it, but for quality and function maybe look elsewhere.

They do have great customer service though!







Roll & Hill

Roll & Hill creates the most stunning modern lighting fixtures. Pop by the showroom for rich jewel toned furniture and modern electrical works of art.

$$$$ | 2 Locations | Soho – 3 Mercer Street | Greenwood – 32 33rd St #10



Room and Board

$$$$ | Chelsea – 236 West 18th Street







The Apartment by The Line

Take the nondescript elevator straight into this light filled, aerie Soho masterpiece.

The interior design “store” is artfully designed as an apartment with everyday home furnishings and objects lying around – albeit of the luxurious kind.

Admire the cobblestone streets from the velvet couch, browse a modern closet of epic designer proportions and contemplate a bath in the freestanding tub.

$$$$ | Soho – 76 Greene St




The Future Perfect

The Future Perfect houses designs from a mix of independent artists for a unique, modern look. Every time I step foot in this place I dream of a massive and minimalist Nordic apartment. Everything here is actually perfect.

$$$$ | Noho – 55 Great Jones St A







Tom Dixon

Tom Dixon is the elevated Jonathan Adler – color, whimsy and modern design with a touch of elegance. A British designer specializing in lighting and furniture, his best works of art are on display here.

$$$$ | Little Italy – 19 Howard St

    Hi All, where can I find the picture/store in the lead-in page? It has a dining table, tall black trim windows, and the most wonderful rug – black (navy?) with ivory images of animals and plants. I’d love to find that rug!

      Hi Kemyell – haha GREAT taste – that’s one of my favorites too! It’s from a local NYC brand called Ochre. They have a store in Soho where you can see the sofas in person
