Apartment living and decorating can be a challenge at times. You need key items that can change the look and feel of your apartment instantly, and of course you want the convenience of shopping online when it comes to finding apartment decor. Today we have a guest post from Jane Blanchard with 5 online stores for apartment decor, just in time for those New Year’s resolutions to makeover the apartment!
Online shopping is quick, easy and practical. When you’re moving into a new apartment, or giving your existing place a makeover, where should you look for fresh ideas, unique accessories and the best deals? Here are five online companies that offer everything from vintage to vogue:
Overstock.com began life as a surplus inventory sales company in 1999. Today, the company partners with suppliers worldwide to bring you everything from cars to throw pillows. Over 1,000,000 products are sold on-site, and “O.co” features amazing customer service, plus free shipping on anything over $50. They offer a vast array of furniture, bedding, accessories and so much more. Prices are very reasonable, so you can afford to get some extra “bling” for your new space.
Wayfair.com advertise themselves as an “on-line destination for a zillion things home.” They feature over seven million products from five brands – AllModern, Birch Lane, Joss & Main, DwellStudio, plus Wayfair.com. There is an amazing selection of classic furniture, and modern décor. Whether you need a single vase, or six rooms worth of furniture, Wayfair.com offers quick, easy ordering and delivery, and—oh yeah—free shipping on orders over $49.
Etsy is a collection of individual businesses, combined to bring the global marketplace directly to you. You can find a whole host of unique, one-of-a-kind pieces to accentuate your design style on this site. Are you looking for vintage? Need a hand-made, eco-friendly art piece? Etsy offers all this and more, at reasonable prices.
Serena & Lily

No online home décor discussion is complete without IKEA. IKEA combines function, design and affordability, all on one site. The company can take care of everything from the design and installation of your new kitchen, to kitting you out with an affordable, sleek living room. Storage pieces, accessories, linens, mattresses and so much more are offered by IKEA, plus unfinished pieces that allow you to personalize your furnishings.
