If you like scoring stylish furniture and decor at low prices, then finding some other stores like Homegoods is probably a good idea.
To be fair, the discount decor retailer offers some of the absolute best deals available for furniture and home accent pieces.
But you often have to sift through thousands of square feet worth of less-than-ideal pieces to find the few diamonds in the rough.
And since their inventory turns over so quickly, if you don’t pull the trigger right away, you’ll probably never see that piece again.
Luckily for those of us who want a better shopping experience, HomeGoods is hardly the only game in town – or online.
In this post we’ve rounded up nearly two dozen other IRL and online stores like HomeGoods where you can find some great pieces at good prices.
Our Top Picks↓
We’ll explain more about why we like each store below, but here’s a quick rundown of our favorite Homegoods alternatives:
- Best Brick-and-Mortar Alternative: TJ Maxx
- Best Affordable Online Option: Tie between Amazon & Wayfair
- Best Higher-End (But Pricier) Alternative: West Elm
The Best Stores Like Homegoods for Cheap Decor & Furniture
Rounding Up Some Similar Companies to HomeGoods ↓
Other Good Discount Affordable Decor Stores ↓
TJ Maxx makes the best alternative to Home Goods stores because, in some ways, it’s kind of the same.
It’s a subsidiary of TJX companies, the same parent company that owns both Homegoods and (spoiler for the one below) Marshall’s so it’s no surprise that it makes such a good alternative.
It’s best known as a popular discount store for fashion and accessories, but they also have a great selection of home decor items, and often carry many of the same brands and products you’ll find at HomeGoods.
As mentioned above, Marshall’s is the other sister store owned by the same parent company as Homegoods and T.J. Maxx.
It’s another great place to turn for new home decor items at a similar price point, including everything from wall decor and home accents to accent furniture like a coffee table or bar stools.
World Market prides itself on sourcing unique pieces from all around the globe, so it’s a good place to turn if you’re looking for something that stands out from what they carry at big-box stores.
They’re a little more narrowly focused on artisanal home decor products rather than big-ticket furniture items, so it’s a good option if you’re looking for accent pieces that will add a little international flare to your place.
Chain stores don’t get much bigger than Costco, which is obviously much more than a home decor and furniture store.
But it’s worth considering if you’re looking for a great price on furniture and home design products.
At most locations, their in-store home section usually isn’t huge. But they have a great selection of products online, and often offer better prices than you’d find in a typical furniture store.
Target is one of my favorite places to turn for affordable and on-trend furniture.
The biggest difference between Target and some of its best-known competitors (including the one listed below) is that Target’s always had a reputation for being more stylish and fashion-forward than most discount retailers.
I think a lot of people know that’s true when it comes to fashion, but not as many people realize it also applies to their home and furniture offerings as well.
They have a great combination of contemporary designs, and while all of their stuff is affordable, it doesn’t look cheap.
Walmart may not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of the best home decor stores, especially if your personal style leans more toward contemporary and modern design.
But furniture and home decor are two of the most popular product categories, and, much like Target and Costco, Walmart has a wide selection of reasonably priced pieces.
Much like Costco, their in-store offerings are a little limited, but their online store has a much wider selection.
If you’re looking for fashionable home decor at reasonable prices, H&M Home could easily become one of your favorite stores.
The fast-fashion brand has long been known as the best place to find great prices on modern and of-the-moment styles, and they extend the same philosophy to their line of home accent pieces and decor.
A more affordable alternative to the flagship department store, Nordstrom Rack offers many of the same brands for significantly more affordable prices.
It’s a similar store to TJ Maxx, in the sense that it’s probably thought of more as a clothing store.
But it also carries some great home items, so it’s the perfect place to score a deal on some big-name brands.
Whereas stores like Walmart and Costco are kind of like a general store on steroids, Kirkland’s home is fully dedicated to furniture and home decor for living spaces.
They’ve got a great selection of pieces in a wide variety of styles – including everything from contemporary and coastal to traditional and down-home – all at prices that fall somewhere in between “pretty reasonable” and “quite affordable.”
A Brief (But Heartfelt) Plea:
Support Small Business!
Like Homegoods, most of our suggested alternatives are big-name retailers with well-stocked websites and plenty of stores across North America.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that some of the coolest pieces – and best deals – come from small local shops and secondhand stores.
In addition to scoring some great prices and supporting small businesses, shopping local is a great way to stumble on unique stuff in good condition that you quite literally can’t find anywhere else.
OK, rant over. And with that plea to support local businesses over, let’s move on to our next recommendation, which is (sigh) pretty much the exact opposite of that…
Online Stores Like Homegoods ↓
With an insanely wide selection and some pretty amazing prices, Amazon has become a one-stop shop for… well, just about everything.
That very much includes furniture and home decor, making the behemoth online retailer a great alternative to Homegoods stores.
And the best part is that with Amazon you also get free shipping if you have Prime, in addition to a pretty decent video streaming service.
One of the most well-stocked furniture websites in the world, Wayfair has become a dominant player in the online furniture game, and with good reason.
They offer a huge selection of items at a range of affordable price points, not to mention fast shipping and a pretty good return policy.
As a result, they’re a good go-to for everything from a big kitchen table or area rug to smaller home accent pieces like end tables, lamps, and (much, much) more.
Until recently, Bed Bath & Beyond had a pretty limited selection of home décor.
But a few months after the company filed for bankruptcy in April of 2023, it was scooped up by prominent online marketplace Overstock, which basically retired its brand and put all of its offerings under the “Bed Bath” banner.
So while the brick-and-mortar Bed Bath locations are gone, today their online platform is arguably better than ever.
After merging with Overstock, their website now features a great selection of everything from furniture and wall art to throw pillows, outdoor furniture, lighting and more.
Owned by Wayfair, AllModern is their sister brand that focuses on (you can probably see where this is going) modern and contemporary design (told ya).
Personally, I find that my own taste falls somewhere in between mid-century modern and hyper-contemporary.
So I love AllModern because almost all of their stuff is in my wheelhouse, and it’s nice to not have to sift through a ton of other styles to find the ones I’m looking for (which is probably my least my favorite part of TJ Maxx and Homegoods).
Yet another sister company (or at least sister brand) to Wayfair, Joss & Main actually has two brick-and-mortar locations.
But they’re only in Boston and Chicago, so for the vast majority of us, it’s helpful to think of them as an online-only store.
Joss & Main’s brand is all about “trend spotting,” so their stuff is super contemporary and of-the-moment.
Their price point is slightly higher than discount stores like Homegoods, but comparable to Wayfair and AllModern.
Another great place to turn for online shopping, Castlery offers modern and minimalist furniture that’s well-made and well-priced.
While it’s certainly not quite as cheap as the really affordable stores like HomeGoods and TJ Maxx, at Castlery you’ll find a wide range of quality furniture that’s built to last and provides good value for your money.
Higher-End Homegoods Alternatives ↓
West Elm is one of the best places to turn for well-made and relatively affordable furniture and decor pieces that nicely straddle the line between modern and timeless.
I say “relatively” affordable because the price point at stores like West Elm (and the other entries below) is higher than the discount stores above, but so is the quality.
So even though the total price tags might be steeper, the value-for-money ratio is arguably better, making these stores a great alternative if you’re looking for big-ticket pieces worth investing in, like a new sofa or dining room table.
This is another great place to turn for modern furniture and accessories that are well-made and well-priced when compared to their quality.
In addition to a pretty comprehensive website, they have brick-and-mortar stores all over the United States, and offer a really wide selection that includes everything from large furniture to smaller accent pieces and home accessories.
The preferred choice of Rachel Green and Phoebe Buffay (much to her chagrin), Pottery Barn has the same high quality as West Elm and Crate and Barrel and a comparable price point, but a more classic aesthetic.
Owned by Crate & Barrel, CB2 is kind of like its younger, hipper little brother.
Whereas Crate & Barrel’s designs skew a little more classic (though, as noted, not as much as Pottery Barn), CB2’s aesthetic is aimed toward a younger, hipper audience.
Their designs are trendier, edgier, and more contemporary compared to stores like Crate and Barrel and West Elm, while being comparable in terms of price and quality.
Think of it this way:
CB2 was where I shopped when I was single, in my 20s, and living downtown in a cool converted loft. Now that I’m married, in my (late) 30s and living in a newly built suburban house, Crate and Barrel is more my jam.
What are some other good places like Homegoods?
The stores listed above represent our top picks for affordable home decor and furniture stores that make a good alternative to Homegoods.
But we’re (definitely) not perfect, and this (probably) isn’t an exhaustive list.
So if you know of some other home goods type stores, we’d love to hear ’em.
Is there a local gem near you that other people should know about? A national chain that we somehow overlooked?
Let us know in the comments below if you have some other good suggestions we should add to our list.
