Amazon is the premier site to buy, well, anything. It’s even become a popular stop for budget-minded shoppers looking for home decor pieces.
But, like the rest of the site, the Amazon home decor section is a bottomless pit of products. So to help you sift through all the options and find the real tried-and-true gems, we asked design professionals to share their top picks that they buy over and over again.
Amazon is brimming with home furniture and accessories that interior designers can’t get enough of. Ahead, a curated list of stylish home decor finds at affordable prices.
If you’d like a pair of high-quality drapes that can breathe life into any room, pick up these natural linen curtains. Recommended by Mariya Snisar, the head of interior design at Renowell, these work well with any design style—from rustic and bohemian to industrial and beyond.
“They’re lightweight and work great for light-filtering without making the room look too dim,” Snisar says. “I also think linen has that innate coziness that can make any room look much more welcoming.”
Snisar is also a fan of these vintage-looking knobs that can be added to all different types of furniture.
“They are pretty cheap but can give any drawer a new life, especially if you decide to paint it to match the handles,” she says.
Available in two different finishes, these knobs work perfectly for dresser drawers and kitchen cabinets.
Maximize the storage in your house by ordering a coffee table with a secret compartment to store books, blankets, and more. This pick has a wood grain table top that opens to reveal a hidden nook.
“I love how this table looks rustic but modern at the same time,” Snisar points out. “Plus, the extra storage space may come in handy if your living space is small.”

These throws come in many colors and work great as housewarming gifts.
