Don’t get me wrong. I love IKEA. Many of the core pieces in my home came from the Swedish retailer, and of course, the prices are hard to beat. However, when I’m ready to trade up my BESTA media cabinet, my many hacked RAST chests, and my well-loved LOHALS rug for furnishings I didn’t build myself, there is a wide world of home decor purveyors out there for my—and your—picking. If you find yourself wanting a little upgrade but aren’t sure where to start looking, let this list of 15 modern shops (both online and brick-and-mortar) be your guide. (And if budget is key, we also rounded up the best affordable modern furniture stores here.)
