IKEA may reign as the affordable furniture brand of choice (until it comes time to build each piece, that is), but you'd be surprised at the number of equally budget- and assembly-friendly furnishing hotspots to outfit your entire home. And while there's nothing wrong with resorting to the beloved (even by royalty) Swedish-based line, you can still get your ready-to-assemble furniture fix without spending hours roaming around a massive warehouse and a significant chunk of your paycheck.
Welcome to the vast expanse that is the affordable online (and brick-and-mortar) furniture world. No matter your interior design style, there's a cost-effective brand just waiting to cater to yours and your partner's home decor needs. For the bohemian, quirky couple, consider scoping out the Urban Outfitters home line, which is just as reliable as the label's clothing collection. If you're in love with modern furniture fads but not the attached price tag, Houzz's in-depth selections have come to the rescue. And, to get the luxe look for less, there's none other than CB2, the more affordable sister of Crate & Barrel.
To further expand your affordable furniture shopping horizons, we rounded up 13 of our favorite spots to ensure your most stylish home yet. IKEA, who?
Houzz is the epitome of on-trend furniture for less. Filter your searches by style, with picks like "Eclectic" to "Southwestern" and everything in between, to truly curate your shopping experience. You can even browse home photos for design inspiration and shop related products.
2. World Market
Featuring unique, original items from around the globe, World Market needs to be your new home go-to. The line's diverse furniture assortment, notorious for its beautiful international styles, earns an A+ in our book—especially the Artisan collection. We're talking tassel stools from New Delhi, a hand-painted cabinet from India, and a storage bench inspired by Chinese design that you'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.
The larger the furniture, the higher the price, but Urban offers bedding, wall art, organization, and rugs galore that won't break the bank. Outfit (pun intended) your humble abode with all things modern, minimal, and completely eccentric. You've come to the right place to get your novelty fix, as well, with plenty of cooky spins on in-home essentials.
Wayfair boasts over 10 million products and 10,000 suppliers, so your affordable furniture options aren't exactly limited thanks to its expansive online marketplace. Thorough filters tailored to each category allow you to narrow your search and discover exactly what you're looking for, whether it be a budget-friendly TV stand or lighting fixture.
Chic storage units have never been so cost-friendly. Kvell's website comes well-stocked with your pick of the organizational lot. Think everything from hampers to closet storage to living room-worthy velvet ottomans. We're also loving the store's colorful array of wall clocks within the aptly-titled Pop collection.
As an extension of Crate & Barrel, CB2 falls a bit pricier on the affordability scale. But, you can still score big with some economical furnishings, especially within the decor department. Upgrade your house numbers with cool brass renditions, or restyle your coffee table with decorative accents that only look like you spent an arm and a leg.
This should come as no surprise—Target has everything a frugal consumer could ever want. Admittedly, though, the superstore may not always be the first that comes to mind in terms of furniture, but we beg you to think again. Start with the brand's Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia collaboration, spearheaded by design husband-and-wife gurus Chip and Joanna Gaines. For color fanatics, Opalhouse is right up your alley, and you're also in good hands with Target's midcentury modern collection, Project 62.
Wayfair's more modern relative (hence the name) marks the perfect spot to snag all your big-ticket items at discounted prices. Cross off the sofa, dining room table set, dresser, and whatever else your furniture checklist demands.
If IKEA still lies at the forefront of your furniture preferences, think of Muji as its Japanese counterpart. The all-encompassing lifestyle brand has a little bit of everything, from hangers to desks to beds, all within a similar IKEA cost and quality range.
10. Dot & Bo
Dot & Bo truly can't be beat, with prices up to 60% off and picks fit to match any style. Nail the farmhouse look with an affordable side table, or keep things industrial thanks to metal dinner chairs.
If a furniture brand produces more products than it needs, Overstock picks up some of the leftovers, which you can take advantage of for a great deal. The value-friendly Internet retailer also has no shortage of new merchandise, as well, that won't leave you cringing over your credit card statement.
Deemed the "Casper of couches," this delivery-only, direct-to-consumer company exclusively carries one product—a sofa, for which you can customize length, legs, fabric, and arm height. The modular design of the furniture makes for easy transport and assembly, especially should you ever want to expand your couch or loveseat. Plus, ordering a couch-in-a-box eliminates markups you may encounter while shopping within a retail store, meaning big savings for you.

Hayneedle boasts one of the largest outdoor selections, but that doesn't mean you should limit your search entirely to hammocks and fire pits (although this is the best spot). Alas, even the brand's indoor furniture collection comes without any lofty fees, so you can make this your one-stop-shop for any pieces that you're missing, from the kitchen to the garden.
