Finding affordable NYC apartments is no easy feat, but once you snag a reasonable walk-up, it's time to decorate! Bottom line: Your studio’s square footage and that costly rent check should never limit you from decking out your digs. That’s why we’ve listed the best shops in NYC where you can score cool, affordable furnishings for every corner of your crib. Bonus for bargain hunters: Some of the price tags at these boutiques beat the ones we found at the best thrift stores in New York.

The best home decor stores in New York

A&G Merch

Add a chic touch to your pad with a mix of contemporary furniture and add-ons from this Williamsburg emporium. Items range from the big-ticket—sofa chairs and sectionals with more than 200 fabric options ($1,299–$4,500), and wooden end tables ($175–$649)—to the purely decorative: knickknacks like wire-mesh alphabet letters filled with miniature toys ($229), wall-mounted papier-mâché deer, goat and bull heads ($169–$269), and bowling-pin–shaped porcelain vases ($69).

Artware Editions

It's maybe a little on the pricier side, but this sleek, white Nolita gallery displays limited-edition pieces that are both functional and visually appealing. Shop pieces by young artists like Brooklyn duo E for Effort and luminaries like Roy Lichtenstein. Our picks: Glen Baldridge’s honey-container–bear bong ($525), Sol LeWitt's hand-painted geometric dinner plates (8 for $640), David Shrigley postcard sets (21 for $21) with quirky drawings and aphorisms, and whimsical circular Christopher Kurtz armchairs ($2,000).

Nolita

Beam

Sure, Brooklyn’s decor scene is a bit of a cliché: Most shops are strewn with Edison bulbs and mason jars filled with wildflowers. But this recently revamped ’Burg joint, with its bold colors and cheeky posters—is "Constantly fucking challenge yourself" motivational enough for you?—feels like a breath of fresh air. We’re most psyched about the Bronsen Project Safari ceramic hippos ($95 each) and the Seletti x Diesel Living candle holders ($90–$133).

Brooklyn Reclamation

If you love vintage-style duds and wish your entire apartment was an extension of your closet, think of this as your one-stop shop for retro and repurposed furniture. It just expanded to a new location in March, dubbed the Backroom, where you can expect to find barnwood frames ($20–$95), metal-locker baskets ($20) and recycled rugs ($40–$65).

Darr

The unique furnishings at this Brooklyn apparel-and-antiques shop cost a pretty penny, but the vintage goods have a haunting yet alluring feel—much like Darr's black-brick walls and dark hardwood floors. Grab English-made ironstone china (sets are between $120–$180), handmade bronze lamps ($800–$1,800) and framed pressed flowers circa 1910 ($125). Go the quirky route with a taxidermied piece: a stuffed bear ($5,000) or insects-under-glass paperweight ($25–$75).

Boerum Hill

Delphinium Home

This off-the-wall home and giftware boutique is the city’s must-visit destination for kitsch buys, thanks to the fun-loving personalities of owners and former musical-theater performers John Soroka, Michael Quinn and Gary Alaimo. These guys go all-out, stocking affordable everyday kitchen and bath essentials with a twist, like Kikkerland's spooky Psycho shower curtain ($20), Fred brass-knuckle tumblers ($20 each) and brightly colored Corkcicles ($25) to keep wine cool.

Hell's Kitchen

DwellStudio

Complete your abode with furniture and trimmings from this Soho flagship, where various decorated vignettes provide a dash of inspiration. Find a luxe velvet Martine Art Deco settee (starting at $3,045), a Sabine ottoman available in a range of fabrics (starting at $424), and safari-animal paperweights ($25–$39) and bookends ($55–$720). Hit the back of the store for a library—complete with ladder—containing the house brand’s assortment of bedding ($80–$440) and decorative pillows ($80–$125). 77 Wooster St (646-442-6000, dwellstudio.com)

Fishs Eddy

There’s a seemingly endless supply of kitchen and vintage finds at this quirky staple. Unused vintage dineresque pieces, circa ’50s–’70s, are priced as low as a dollar, and even the more expensive items, such as jadeite glassware cake stands ($57–$100), are still within reach. Tableware collections are organized by themes, like the NYC skyline ($4–$36), cats and dogs ($6–$24) and striptease ($5–$24). We’re coveting the cow-shaped cream dispensers ($10) and the label’s “intervention-ware” range ($11–$15): think bowls emblazoned with "Finishing your meal in two minutes does not make you a winner."

HomeGoods

The colorful bargain store offers name-brand wares at up to 60 percent off retail prices, with a constantly rotating selection. Culinary goods—such as Tupperware ($3–$5), Calphalon pots and pans ($15–$50) and KitchenAid appliances ($40–$300)—greet you on the first floor. The bulk of the merch is on the lower level, including bedding ($20–$160), bath goods ($4–$40) like Cynthia Rowley ceramic wastebaskets ($25) and a small selection of furniture, including Barcalounger leather love seats ($350) and mirrored nightstands ($125). A $45 delivery service ($15–$35) is available for bulky purchases.
