Home shopping guide

Filter your preferences to generate an editor-approved selection of gifts—from bedding to kitchenware and more

If you buy something from a Curbed link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics policy.

When shopping for home goods, some categories remain oddly difficult to check off a shopping list (rugs, curtains), while some categories exist in a certain price bracket that’s initially hard to swallow (sofas, bed frames). Some categories offer a lot of options, but few of them any good (floor lamps, trash cans).

Curbed’s editors want to help you sort through your shopping queries—in this case, literally. We’ve built a tool so you can use our home shopping guide as a resource again and again. Start by selecting your preferred filters, deciding on price, style, room (if appropriate), and whether you’re shopping for yourself or for someone else.

Our tool will filter all the options that apply, in order from lowest price to highest*, based on hundreds of home goods and furniture that we’ve personally vetted.
