Pottery Barn has long been a destination for functional, stylish, modern furniture that’s sophisticated without being stuffy. Their products are well-crafted, designed for the contemporary home, and built to last. It’s the kind of store where you can almost always find a chair, a table, or a piece of home décor that you love.
But Pottery Barn isn’t the only game in town.
If you’re on a quest for a new couch, coffee table, bed, or accent piece, here are 11 stores like Pottery Barn to shop right now.
1. West Elm
West Elm has a knack for crafting furniture and décor that looks timeless, modern, and effortless. Whether your style is minimalist, contemporary, or mid-century, you’ll find plenty of versatile pieces at West Elm. What’s great about West Elm is that their pieces are easy to coordinate together without being too matchy-matchy.
Like Pottery Barn, West Elm offers an entire collection of rugs, curtains, pillows, and lighting fixtures. They also sell chic garden furniture and patio essentials to beautify your outdoor space.
2. Crate & Barrel
Crate & Barrel sells a whole collection of furniture, but what we really love about C&B is their tabletop décor, barware, and kitchen accessories.
If you’re looking to set a gorgeous dining table, head to Crate & Barrel. Their selection of table runners, placemats, napkins, napkin rings, and place card holders beats Pottery Barn’s by a mile!
3. Design Within Reach
Design Within Reach is a great Pottery Barn alternative if you’re shopping strictly for contemporary furniture. Their prices are higher, but they also sell products from notable architects and brands. Here you’ll find stunning pieces from designers such as Herman Miller, Fritz Hansen, and Knoll.
If you’re on the hunt for an Eames chair or an authentic Barcelona chair, DWR is the place to go.
4. One Kings Lane
We love One Kings Lane for its sophisticated styling, luxe upholstery options, and gorgeous wood finishes.
With styles ranging from traditional to modern to rustic, it’s easy to find something that suits your personal style. Unfortunately, it might not fit your budget. (One Kings Lane is on the pricey side).
What makes One Kings Lane extra-special is its curated collection of vintage and antique furniture. It’s the perfect place to find a one-of-a-kind heirloom piece that you can put on display in your home for generations to come.
5. Joss and Main
Of all the stores to make this list, Joss and Main is perhaps the most like Pottery Barn, both in terms of style and price. Every piece is designed to make your home look beautiful and encourage you to live comfortably.
If you’re not in the market for new furniture, check out their Home Improvement category. They have a wide assortment of fixtures, wallpaper prints, tiles, and hardware that are perfect if you’re looking to make a few minor tweaks.
6. ABC Carpet & Home
Don’t let the name fool you — ABC Carpet & Home sells much more than just area rugs.
At ABC, you’ll find a large assortment of both modern and vintage furniture, as well as a massive collection of rugs of all shapes and sizes. But where they really stand out is in their selection of pillows and throws.
Most of their pillows range in price from about $75 to $400. That is a bit steep for many home decorators, but they’re much more unique than any of the pillows you’ll find at Pottery Barn.
7. All Modern
If it’s clean lines and minimalist design that you love, check out All Modern. It’s the best store to shop if you’re looking for unique pieces to make your home or apartment different from everyone else you know.
Minimalist, mid-century, Scandinavian, and modern farmhouse are the key looks offered here. Though they sell a few sofas and chair sets, the fun of shopping at All Modern is mixing and matching all sorts of different items together.
8. Lulu and Georgia
Lulu and Georgia is the place to shop for interior decorators in the know. The Lulu & Georgia offers an entire collection of furniture and décor for every room of the home. They have that Pottery Barn-esque aesthetic, just a bit more upscale (and a bit pricier).
Whether your style is traditional, modern, rustic, or a bit retro, you’re sure to find a unique piece that fits your mood and attitude.
HomeGoods is the ultimate treasure hunt. They don’t sell products online, so you’ll have to head to an actual store, but that’s sort of the fun of it.
HomeGoods does sell furniture, but where they especially stand out is in their home accessories and décor. From pillows to dinnerware to tabletop accessories, this is the place to go to find one-of-a-kind items.
Is your home already full of Pottery Barn furniture?
HomeGoods is the way to make your home look unique and not like it’s straight off the page of a PB catalog.
10. Restoration Hardware
Restoration Hardware is equal parts elegant and understated. From luxe Italian leather chairs to rustic wood dining tables, they have a way of blending classic, rustic, modern, and industrial style together with ease. It’s modern luxury, and unfortunately, it comes at a luxury price tag.
If you haven’t shopped RH before, you might suffer a bit of sticker shock.

Frontgate is perfect for the home decorator with a traditional eye for style. Many of the pieces here are clean and modern, but most tend to have a more classic feel. It’s a great place to shop if you want to elevate the look and feel of your home.
Frontgate sells furniture for every room of the house as well as outdoor furniture, game tables, and all sorts of décor and accessories. Their prices are comparable to Pottery Barn, but their style is a bit more ornate.
We’ll always be fans of Pottery Barn, but there are lots of other (even better) places to shop. The next time you’re in the market for a new sofa, bed frame, or console table for your entryway, check out some of the other stores on this list.
You can always rely on Pottery Barn to find stylish, functional items. But it’s more fun to mix and match items from different brands than it is to decorate your entire home with items from only one store!
