The leaves are falling and the daylight window is slowly closing, shutting many of us inside where the thermostat can still make it feel like summer. As the weather changes and more of our time is spent indoors, we have the perfect opportunity to create a haven for hibernation within our homes. The following online stores have a unique selection that’s sure to make your home decor dreams come true.

Discount Diva

Affordable and abounding with possibilities in every cut and color, Overstock.com is the mecca for those seeking home decor. Overstock.com offers steep discounts and free shipping on purchases over $45. The website also offers clearance and liquidation sales, with rugs, bath accessories, bedding and other home goods up to 75% off the original price.

Vintage Value

ModCloth is not only a superstar when it comes to selling ‘50s polka-dotted A-line skirts. It also has quite a large selection of time-honored treasures that will transform your space. You can create “Little House on the Prairie” vibes with ModCloth’s old-fashioned duvet covers, shams and pillows.

With most items under $100, free exchanges and free shipping on orders over $75, vintage lovers can purchase statement pieces with staying power without breaking the bank.

Design with a Difference

Novica is passionate about empowering artisans around the world by connecting their products to a global marketplace of socially conscious consumers. Designing your home with the fair trade decor on Novica’s website helps preserve ancient artistic traditions, such as wood carving in Bali and ceramics in Peru.

Novica offers handcrafted furniture in wood, leather and teak. The woven woolen tapestry of Peruvian llamas is sure to warm your walls as well as your heart once you read the story of the brother artists behind the hanging creation. Novica also ships to over 100 countries around the world.

For the Rare Birds

The unique finds at Uncommon Goods are perfect conversation starters for the friends and family you’ll be hosting over the holidays. Each of the unique items on the site includes a background story, and the handcrafted goods include a maker bio. The creative decorative pieces, such as the wooden door harp (why knock when you can announce your entrance with strings?), also make great housewarming gifts for the hostess who has everything.

Not Your Mama’s Crate and Barrel

CB2, Crate and Barrel’s cheaper and more modern sister, offers surprisingly good sales without sacrificing style. Geometric vases, unique lighting, storage accessories and more await you! You can also sign up for their emails and be the first to know when sales or special offers are available.

Wanderlust for World Market

For those of us whose vacation days were spent well before July, World Market’s eclectic decor will transform your home into an international destination without the hassle of heavy luggage and long flights. And there’s almost always a sale both in stores and online.

The Craft collection by World Market is a dynamic array of limited-edition, handcrafted goods from artisanal communities across the globe. Each item in the collection requires a minimum number of pre-orders before the artisan proceeds with the craft’s production.

Eclectic and Budget Friendly

It’s hard to not get sucked into the world of Zulily every time you visit their site. Not only do they offer clothing and shoes at discounted prices, but they also offer home decor at reduced prices from brands you know and love. It’s important to note that the sales run for just a couple of days per collection, so you have to act fast if you want an item. Purchases are final sale, but their customer service team will work with you to find a solution if you find that you’re not happy with your purchase.

Shopping online for unusual and affordable home decor can be a fun and exciting way to reflect your personality in your home and surround yourself with comfort every season of the year.

  1. Great, informative article, Lydia. A site I use often is Amani ja Juu. It is a fair trade company selling hand crafted items for personal and home use…from Africa. I know the founder and respect her greatly. Check out their story. It is a neat place to buy hostess gifts.
