Whether you work from home 24/7 or have the need for a separate home classroom/office to get some work done, we understand that you may not want to break the bank to get the essentials. With that, we have compiled a list of some affordable places where you can seek out quality home office furniture! Yes, this list consists of stores outside of your typical box retailers!
Shopping for furniture online can be intimidating yet convenient. One downside is that you may not be able to get the full scope of what you are purchasing due to not seeing, touching, and fully evaluating the color, pattern, and material in person. However, shopping online for furniture at store like Furniturebox is beneficial because you can do it from the convenience of your home (don’t have to deal with people or lines), and shopping online makes comparing prices a lot easier.
There are a few online furniture outlets that actually take overstocked or ‘out of date’ items from high-end retail companies and sell them at an amazing markdown.
One of these online retailers is Wayfair. What started as a stereo rack and stand shop grew to become one of the most well-known destinations for home furnishings and décor. This site’s portfolio contains multiple well-known brands including Wayfair, Joss & Main, AllModern, Birch Lane, and Perigold. Wayfair’s mission is to make home a reality for more of the many people in need of safe shelter and basic household items that help make a home. They do this through low prices, amazing deals, and great social responsibility efforts.
On Wayfair.com, you can find over seven million products from more than 7,000 suppliers. Talk about options and price comparisons! You can also sign up to receive the latest and greatest deals via email from them. A majority of these deals will flood the top of their website on a daily basis so that consumers are aware of the amazing price cuts available to them. If you are a returning customer of Wayfair, the site will become customized with price cut “top picks for you” based on previous searches, saves, and buys.
Overstock is literally based on the idea of taking overstocked furniture from f retailers and selling it at a huge discount. Much like Wayfair, overstock values itself in social responsibility and offering quality products at affordable prices. With thousands of suppliers, Overstock offers huge name brands like West Elm at up to 70% off of those designer names. Overstock also offers customers a variety of coupons that are stackable on top of the already great prices that they offer. So, what we are saying here is that you can get the look you want at an affordable price from your couch!
The last online retailer that is worth a large mention is Amazon. Although it started out as an online book store, Amazon.com has grown into a world renowned retailer for just about any item you may want or need, including furniture. Although Amazon may not offer the type of discounted name brand products that Wayfair and Overstock do, it definitely allows you to compare prices and find something affordable to match your style conveniently from your couch! Plus, Amazon offers 1- to 2-day shipping on many items, making shopping that much more convenient.
Online shopping isn’t for everyone, especially when it comes to the comfort level of furniture in your home. You can’t test how long you will be able to sit in a specific office chair before your back hurts if you order it online so to speak. With that, there are also very affordable physical stores where you can purchase furniture.
Ikea’s furniture has a very modern appeal; therefore, it may not fit everyone’s taste. The store does have a large variety of items that could fit anyone’s bill, though! Ikea is a lot older than many would think. Beginning in the early 1900s as mobile match delivery service, Ikea’s Swedish beginnings have since evolved into a major retail store in over 40 countries/territories around the world. Ikea’s business idea is “to offer a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishing products at prices so low, that as many people as possible will be able to afford them.” With that, people can shop Ikea for quality furniture, decor, and home essentials without breaking the bank from just about anywhere in the world.
We know, we know – you are probably thinking, WALMART?! Walmart is a big box store; however, did you know that they have their own home furniture line? Some of the items can be found in store; however, you can easily go online and order a product that matches your style and needs. What’s even better? If you shop at Walmart (online or in-store), the return policy is so incredibly simple and forgiving that you have nothing to lose!
