For years, the brilliant minds at Pottery Barn have worked tirelessly to bring us the best simple, functional, and elegant furniture and decor. We depend on the brand like we depend on our closest friends, leaning on its plentiful products in times of interior design despair (which happens more often than you'd think).

It's truly one of the best home decor brands and it's not hard to see why. There's something for everyone, at every age (see Pottery Barn Kids and Pottery Barn Teen) and in every color. Many of its products are contract-grade, so you know they're durable and high quality. And while its pieces are certainly an investment, the pricing is fair for what you're getting.

How do we know? Well, we've invested time, both online and in-store. If one could earn a degree in Pottery Barn, we'd hold PhDs. We scrutinize each piece like discerning parents meeting their child's new significant other, noting every detail — quality, construction, colors, materials — and if they don't meet our standards, they're out.

In light of this dedication, we’ve curated the best items from each product category, including the best table lamps, the best couches and sofas, and the best accent chairs. You're going to love what you see, and soon, if it's not already, Pottery Barn is about to be your new best friend.

Absolutely! Pottery Barn offers fantastic sales events throughout the year. While you may come across clearance deals or markdowns occasionally, the real gems are found during key sales events.

These typically align with major holidays like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Presidents’ Day, and Memorial Day. During these times, you can enjoy discounts of up to 50% off on a wide range of best-selling furniture and home decor items. Keep an eye on Pottery Barn's Home sale page for updates, or check out our curated Pottery Barn sale edit for detailed information on the best deals to shop.


One of the perks of our job is getting to go out into the field — by which we mean shopping. After scouting our favorite pieces from Pottery Barn’s website, we embark on a field trip to their stores to interact with the items we fell in love with on screen. We sit on chairs, open and close drawers, test the weight of flatware, and even take mirror selfies (see Julia doing so below).

All of this is to say that most of the time when we recommend something from Pottery Barn, it's based on personal experience. If, for whatever reason, we’re not impressed (which rarely ever happens), you won't find it in one of our edits. From sofas to lamps, trust that everything you see above (and in any of our work) is top-tier.
