Let’s get one thing straight: You don’t need a huge budget to have a great eye for design.
Sure, it would be nice to have the latest (and priciest) pieces from Paris or Milan; however, there’s something satisfying about searching high and low for a great deal. Plus, how cool is it when all your friends are fawning over an ottoman or throw blanket when you know you got it for next to nothing.
Of course, we’re not the only ones who love some cheap thrills. Turns out, interior designers love their share of reasonably priced furniture and accessories. So, the next time you’re looking for a great design deal, check out these expert-approved stores. Happy shopping!
