The Fashion Stores Where I Secretly Buy All My Home Décor

We all have our favorite décor stores: From West Elm to IKEA, we know that no matter what we're looking for, we're bound to find a great option (or two) by browsing their large home selections. But when it comes to finding unique accessories and smaller accents that we might not otherwise find elsewhere, we have a secret go-to: fashion retailers. While Net-a-Porter or Zara may not immediately come to mind when shopping for anything from linen bedding to scented candles, we can guarantee that certain fashion retailers actually carry a really great selection of trendy home accents.
Browsing the home section of fashion retailers might be second nature to editors who spend their days searching for unique market pieces, but it dawned on us during a recent conversation with friends that not everybody is aware that stores like Barneys and H&M actually have amazing décor selections. Ready to bring your home décor shopping to the next level? Here are our favorite fashion retailers that also carry beautiful home décor.
We all know and love Zara for its seemingly endless supply of affordable trendy fashion pieces, but did you know that Zara Home also has a large selection of home items? Think small accent furniture, beautiful linens, and tabletop essentials at insanely affordable prices. It's like fast fashion, but for your home.
If you're looking for fashion-forward investment pieces for your closet or your home, look no further than The Line. The owner, Vanessa Traina, has a discerning eye to source the best of the best from bath accessories to iconic furniture pieces. Get ready to have a seriously chic home and wardrobe.
H&M is our editors' best-kept secret. Not only do we consistently find great affordable fashion finds on the website, its home section is seriously impressive. Head over for quality linen bedding, kitchen essentials, and tabletop items. They also have a great section of baskets and vases so you can amp up the style and function of your space without spending a ton.
We typically shop Net-a-Porter for its next-level fashion options, but it also has an impressive selection of candles and silk pillowcases. Just look under the beauty and wellness sections. Better yet, Mr. Porter, NAP's counterpart for men, has a full home section full of great home décor essentials.
Our love for Urban Outfitters' home section is no secret, but it truly never ceases to surprise us. From trendy furniture at insanely low prices to quirky accessories, this store has us covered from head to toe and beyond.
Barneys New York
Barneys New York is our go-to store when we want to treat ourselves with something elegant and timeless. While the NYC department store is best known for its high-end fashion, it also carries an impressive home inventory, ranging from entertaining essentials to coffee table books and even small furniture.
While picking up a pair of striped trousers at Nordstrom, it's not rare that we end up adding a tasseled pillow or colored glass vase to our cart as well. The department store carries a ton of great affordable home brands—it even has a large Anthropologie inventory.
Need Supply Co.
Need Supply Co. is our go-to destination for cutting-edge pieces from lesser-known designers—and this goes for our closets as much as our homes. On the décor side, the online retailer carries a ton of great brands like Hawkins New York, Iittala, and more.
