11 Indie Home Brands Guaranteed To Break You Out Of Your Big Box Store Rut

As much as we love the ease and low price points of home megastores like Ikea and Target, furnishing your entire apartment with their wares can feel predictable. Do you really want to have the exact same coffee table or curtains as three other people you know? Probably not. Thankfully, it's possible to back away from the big box stores in favor of independent designers and forward-thinking furniture companies that will help ensure your residence is as unique as you are.
From garment racks that looks like fine art to carpets so cute you'll want to Instagram them, some of these finds may require a little saving up for. But, when you're fielding inquiries about their origins from pretty much everyone who sets foot inside your space, it'll be totally worth it.
