Amazon is already a go-to source for tech, books, fashion, and even food… but with the launch of Amazon Home, more and more stylish pieces of furniture and decorative household items are available at affordable prices. But one of the issues consumers face is finding those items in a sea of ugly, poorly-rated pieces. Lucky for you, Primer has done the grunt work. Keep reading to check out our favorite home decor picks — pieces that we’d put in our homes in a second.
If you’re on the hunt for a comfortable sofa that won’t break the bank, the Revolve Modern Sofa from Rivet may be the perfect solution. Its square lines and slightly tapered legs give it a thoroughly modern feel, and the textured gray upholstery will coordinate with a variety of decor styles. At 80 inches wide, it provides seating for three while still looking natural in a compact city apartment. It’s highly rated, too, with Amazon shoppers raving about its easy set-up, comfort, and versatility.
Render TV Stand
If mid-century modern style appeals to you, then you’re sure to love this low-profile TV stand from Modway. In addition to providing a large surface on which to place your TV, it also has ample storage in which to put cable boxes or other devices. And the slatted door slides back and forth so you can hide the clutter. Reviewers tout its high quality appearance and simple assembly. It also comes in larger sizes for those with more storage needs.
Sorrento Lounge Chair
Upholstered in a versatile gray color, this retro-modern accent chair is paired with a dark walnut wood frame that looks solid yet not bulky. This piece will provide the perfect place for guests to sit, while also adding some serious style to your living room. The button-tufted back cushion makes it feel expensive despite its reasonable price, and the rounded legs give it an extra dose of refinement. It also includes stoppers underneath the bottom cushion, a feature sometimes overlooked in less expensive chairs.
3-Tier Metallic Rolling Cart
With this handy rolling cart from design powerhouse Rivet, the possibilities are endless. Use it in the kitchen for plates and glasses, in the bathroom for towels, or in the living room as a cocktail bar… or roll it from room to room as needed. Two of the wheels lock, so when you find the perfect place to park it, you can rest assured that it won’t roll away. Amazon shoppers love the decorative metal frame and the fact that it comes fully assembled.
Blythe Area Rug
Area rugs can cost an arm and a leg, but nuLOOM has managed to create an affordable rug that actually looks good. The neutral gray and cream color scheme will coordinate with numerous decor styles thanks to its geometric diamond shapes that repeat in different designs across the surface. Reviewers love its affordability, style, and durability, going so far as to call it magic — stains seem to disappear as easily as they appeared.
Decorative Throw Pillow Cover Set
Throw pillows are a simple, affordable way to make a space look professionally styled; Woven Nook has made it easy by picking out coordinating patterns so that you don’t have to. This set includes three geometric black and white patterns, as well as one solid vegan leather cover. Buy two sets and you’ll have enough for your whole apartment. Just note that these are the covers only, so you’ll want to purchase pillow inserts of the same size (don’t worry, Amazon has those, too).
Cotton Geometric Duvet Cover Set
It’s difficult to find a patterned duvet cover set that looks masculine, but Rivet has done it with this unique, reversible triangle patterned design. One side is white with navy lines, while the other is navy with white lines, making it simple to change up the look of your bedroom. The button closure is easy to open and close according to reviewers, and the whole set can be thrown in the washing machine (unlike some higher end alternatives).
Deco Black Accordion Sconce
This functional sconce has an accordion-like arm that allows you to extend the light toward you; it also pivots from left to right. And with a matte black finish and a perfectly rounded metal shade, its functionality is only topped by its attractiveness. Copper accents add a bit of extra style to the top of the shade and the bottom of the arm. And there’s no need to have it hard-wired into your wall thanks to the corded on/off switch.
Modern Tripod Floor Lamp
The combination of materials give this tripod-style floor lamp a high-end feel, but Stone & Beam has managed to produce it without the exorbitant price tag. The wood legs are accented with a shiny metal lamp base, and a fabric drum shade softens the angular silhouette of the piece. So skip all those boring, utilitarian floor lamps out there and give this unique piece a try. It even includes a coordinating bulb, so you don’t have to figure out which one to buy.
It's safe to say that Amazon's new home decor offerings are surprisingly good…you just have to know where to look. We hope that sharing the picks above will help guide your search and make shopping less intimidating— not to mention quicker. (Thank you, one-day shipping!)
