Knowing which are the best home decor brands is just as important, if not more important, than what you actually buy. If the selection you're working with isn't up to snuff, how can you compete with the latest and greatest interior design trends?

At Livingetc, we pride ourselves on knowing not just how to design a room, but how to shop for the room, too. So join us as we run through an editor-backed list of chic home decor brands, which includes mainstays like Urban Outfitters, legends like Jonathan Adler, and luxury purveyors like Net-A-Porter.

If you want to shop like a Livingetc writer, now is your chance. And with a combined 20+ years in the interiors industry, our editorial team would never lead you astray. We love contemporary, modern design, but are happy to swing into a whimsical, art deco retailer for a bit of an edge. And although our taste tends to skew a bit expensive, we love a good deal as much as the next shelter publication. There's a little bit of everything here, so you're sure to find an outlet (and price point) you love.

Some you might be familiar with, others you might not. Either way, read on to be inspired.

Andddddddd relax — browsing Lulu and Georgia is the visual equivalent of an afternoon in the spa. Rounded shapes, soft textures, boucle, linen, and curves. This is where you'll find furniture and accessories that come together to make a soothing home; where subtle colors envelop and calm.

Best for following trends: Urban Outfitters

You might know Urban Outfitters as Gen Z's clothing brand of choice, but its interiors selection remains enticing no matter your age. And if you're looking to capitalize on a trend or two, this is 100% the place to look. It has everything: spiraled taper candles, scalloped mirrors, and coquette rugs and pillows. You'll be TikTok-ready in no time.

Best for dining chairs: Interior Define

One of the many great things about Interior Define is its customization options. From fabric to finish, the brand offers essentially a bespoke design service, letting you draw up the product you're buying in the way you want it. But its edit of dining chairs is particularly worth a mention — each one is the sort of piece you can imagine having the most wonderful dinners in, living the best versions of your life. Put simply, these chairs are smart but relaxed, setting just the right tone for how we want to live.

Best for table lamps: Crate and Barrel

Crate and Barrel had honed bleached-out, beached-out chic long before coastal Grandma was a thing. Rough finishes, vaguely distressed wood, and a touch of pervasive calm are what this brand does best, but it's the table lamps that really stand out — a trove of stellar pieces that are easy to mix into most rooms, adding a sense of careworn elegance.

Best for accent chairs: OKA

If you've got a dark corner you're unsure how to handle or a room that needs a little pizazz, then chances are OKA will have just the accent chair you need. Its brand style is traditional-meets-quirky, meaning it sells an aura of grandness that is nothing if not personality-filled. In other words, it's perfect for that statement piece you've been missing.

Best for vases: Jonathan Adler

Friend of Livingetc Jonathan Adler made his name as a potter. And while the only guest editor of our magazine's history has expanded into furniture, textile,s and interior design, it's his characterful objet that he is truly known for. His vases are always refined, works of art in their own right. They're surprisingly delicate, a fact that belies the wit with which they're made. And they add character in spades to a room.

Best for contemporary fabric: Kravet

A one-stop shop for all the most dynamic and desirable fabric brands, it's impossible to browse Kravet and not come away inspired. Donghia, Lee Jofa, and Kravet's own lines showcase the best of both recent and heritage prints. Yet every pattern on display feels fresh and exciting in its own way.

Best for design-forward blankets: Net-A-Porter

The era of the desk blanket is upon us. Think of it as a cashmere or wool wrap that coddles you as you type feverishly all day. Afterwards, it can come with you to the sofa to keep you snug while you decompress. The ultimate in day-to-night home-working dressing. Net-A-Porter excels in this sort of luxe accessory, with blankets from Anya Hindmarch, Erdem and Chloe. Flashes of patterned brilliance that comfort you in their quality.

Best for coffee tables: Anthropologie

Everyone's favorite place for cutesy doorknobs and jugs is secretly killing it when it comes to coffee tables. Yes, Anthropologie does a really, really good job with furniture (shop our Anthropologie editor's choice here), but specifically with coffee tables. Often asymmetric, often rounded, but always beautiful and always looking so much more expensive than they actually are.

Best for mirrors: CB2

Favored by such supreme interior designers as Noa Santos (who used some of its dining chairs in a breathtaking townhouse dining room), CB2 has long been a stylist's secret. Its pieces are sometimes architectural, sometimes artisanal, occasionally aged to look like a treasured antique. And its mirrors are all of these things — from daring shapes to foxed surfaces.

The CB2 sale is also something worth looking out for — when it happens, of course.

Best for uplifting paint colors: Benjamin Moore

It's uncanny how many of the world's best designers love Benjamin Moore. Robert Stilin, Brigette Romanek and Sara Cukerbaum — to name a few — have all highlighted various hues as their top shades of the moment. And while Robert went for a lavender, Brigette for a cream and Sara for a black, each has a richness that energizes a room.

Best for family-friendly rugs: Ruggable

What if we told you that yes, you can have a cream rug, despite owning a dog/child/clumsy life partner? Ruggable's design-forward selection of area rugs are all machine-washable and come out brilliantly.

Best for designer brands: Saks Fifth Avenue

For big names from the clothing world, it's best to turn to Saks Fifth Avenue, long the preferred mega-retailer of choice for the globe's most renowned fashion houses. Of course, you can also find products from high-profile interior designers among the many listings; If you're looking for Ralph Lauren candles or Dolce and Gabbana dishware, this is the place to go.

ABC Carpet & Home is your luxury interiors best friend. Shopping there is like browsing a high-end New York boutique — it's ahead of the trends, it carries the best brands, and you only feel better about your own taste for checking it out to begin with.

The editor's pick of what to buy from ABC Carpet & Home

No matter what you're shopping for, we're confident one or more of these chic, timeless brands will suffice. Let us know what you pick (especially if it's one of the couture pieces from Saks), then invite us over for a cocktail or two. It's really the least you could do!
