Blu Dot launched over 20 years ago with the mission of filling the gap between high-end designers and IKEA (no shade, they’re also on this list). As a winner of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award, the retailer has succeeded in blending form and function. Plus, because they keep every part of the process in house, they can keep costs accessible to the average design enjoyer.
Hay, a Danish furniture brand, offers bold, quirky designs and strong color options. Though they lack style variety, their unique designs like hole-punch tabletops and wavy benches add a kick to any space, continuing Denmark's iconic furniture tradition.
Interior Icons offers high-quality, affordable designer furniture through a direct-to-consumer model, eliminating unnecessary costs. Known for mid-century-inspired pieces, meticulous quality assurance, fast shipping, a 365-day return policy, and a 10-year warranty.
