Our Ultimate Guide to Online Shopping: 101 Places to Buy Furniture & Home Decor

Our Ultimate Guide to Online Shopping: 101 Places to Buy Furniture & Home Decor

Oh, the joys of online home decor shopping. Not only can you find great deals on all kinds of housewares, you can do it all in your pajamas and from the privacy of your own sofa (that you may or may not having purchased via a website). It goes without saying, the internet is a design lover's dream store.

With all those amazing marketplaces and discounts, though, beware that online shopping can also be overwhelming, if not downright dangerous. That's why it helps to know where to look beforehand, and to have an idea of what to expect in terms of pricing. To encourage smarter shopping, we've rounded up 101 of the best places to buy home goods online (and categorized them by room and price point for safe measure). And while we can't promise it'll keep you from going wild on the world-wide-web (who wouldn't go crazy for Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.'s lighting and home goods, seen above), we can at least take comfort in knowing we tried to make it as effective an experience as possible.
