Whether you're starting with an unfurnished canvas or looking for one statement piece to upgrade an area, it's difficult to determine where exactly to begin when shopping for your space. As much as the internet is our ally in these DIY endeavors, it can also turn into our worst enemy. We start by Googling a simple keyword, only to end up with an endless sea of sofas to bookcases and every home item in between — turning our search from fun treasure hunt to survival of the strongest.
To avoid any search-result overload, along with misguided over-spending, we rounded up our favorite furniture to decor (and everything in between) sites. Scroll through the destinations ahead, curated by "best for" styles, and take some of the headache out of home shopping. It's time to kick back, relax, and click your way to a better space — without needing to leave your couch.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

Target has really stepped up its home-decor game in recent years, meaning you can grab pieces that look way more luxe than they actually cost. Shopping online has its perks, since many of Target's wares are web exclusives. Still, it can be overwhelming, and it can be hard to find the perfect piece just through search. We recommend checking out some of our favorite collections, like Opalhouse or Threshold, as well as keeping an eye out for some of Target's amazing collaborations, like the seasonal releases from Joanna Gaines.

We especially love the wide variety of couches available for under $500.
