HGTV Editors' Favorite Home Finds You Probably Wouldn't Guess Are From Amazon
A dining room rug that hides everything, the coziest checkerboard blanket, a chic candle warmer lamp that reduces fire hazards and more — shop our favorite home decor we've (surprisingly!) found on Amazon.
Here at HGTV, we love interior design and home decor (obviously). And individually, the design styles of the editors and producers on our staff range from cottagecore to midcentury modern to modern farmhouse. One thing we all have in common is our love of a good budget-friendly home find. Today, we're sharing the best home decor, furniture and accessories we've bought and loved from Amazon.
"This is probably my favorite vase. I keep evergreen clippings in it on my entryway table. No one would ever know it cost less than $20!" — Kayla Kitts, Managing Editor
"I bought this mirror for my bathroom remodel, and I couldn't be happier with it. The brass finish looks very chic, and I love the shape. We put it on a hinge for a built-in medicine cabinet, and it's the perfect size and weight for that. I would buy it again in a heartbeat!" — Keri Sanders, Editor

"OK, hear me out. I know a blanket might not sound like the most exciting gift ever, but this one I received is. It is the softest material, comes in eight different colors, and has a subtle elastic give to it that makes it so comfortable to snuggle up in, without feeling constricted. It has a microfiber texture, but something about this material feels extra cozy and luxurious compared to other microfiber blankets. Not to mention, it looks cute everywhere. I even love this blanket for road trips because you won't easily overheat in it because of the weave style. It's a bit on the pricey side for a blanket, but it is worth every penny!" — Karen Webb, Associate Producer

"Let me set the scene: I have a baby and a dog and live on a farm. When I tell you I searched for two years for the perfect dining room rug, I *actually* looked for two years. I was determined to find one that was stylish, classic, durable, reasonably priced — all the things. I had seen this Loloi rug everywhere, and when I finally got to the end of my rug-searching rope, I figured I had nothing to lose and ordered it. I could go on and on about this rug, but I'll keep it short and sweet: it's incredible. The thickness? Perfect. The pattern? Hides everything. And I mean everything! (I actually lost a screw on this rug and couldn't find it for 30 minutes.) I've now had the rug for almost three years, and when I tell you it still looks brand new, I'm not kidding. I'm so obsessed with this rug that I've purchased it for my sister and my mom and have contemplated getting one for literally every room in my house. TLDR: Buy this rug. You will not be disappointed." — Ellie Sanders, Assistant Editor
"This rug is SO pretty. The muted rust + blue shades warm up a room without overwhelming it with color. It's also way more plush and thicker than I expected at such a low price point." — Chelsea Faulkner, Editor

"After a close call with a candle fire situation, I started looking into candle warmers, and I'm officially a convert! It burns longer and more evenly without sacrificing the fragrance or my sanity worrying about burning down my place." — Liz Dunlap, Producer
"After learning that letting the wax burn all the way to the edges of a candle before extinguishing the flame and trimming the wick after each burn can help prevent tunneling, I ordered this wick trimmer and use it all the time. Trimming the wick really does help candles burn more evenly, meaning I get more mileage out of them. Plus, this matte black wick trimmer is chic and a nice functional accessory to style on a coffee table or bookshelf." — Laura James, Editor

"This is one of my favorite finds of the year! This modern-style sconce acts as a night light, reading lamp or ambient lighting. The magnetic light stick is removable so you can take it off the wall and navigate in the dark if necessary, just like a flashlight. It's battery-powered and rechargeable — no hardwiring required! And it comes with a strong adhesive backing for easy, damage-free installation. I use these in my camper, but they're also great for kids' rooms." — Chelsea Faulkner, Editor
"Yes, wall hooks can change the look and feel of a room. These wood hooks are large enough to hold towels, coats, bags and more! They also come with extra-strong adhesive strips if you can't or don't want to make holes in the wall. I installed them in a camper and they stayed put, even in fluctuating temperatures." — Chelsea Faulkner, Editor
"I was blown away by how beautiful this shower curtain is for the price. It's heavy and substantial and instantly updated the look of my bathroom." — Chelsea Faulkner, Editor

"I adore these linen curtains. I first saw them in my brother's home office, and I was shocked to learn the price. For $24.99 for two panels, I would have never expected them to look as high quality as they do. I love the subtle texture and the way the light shines through, and I've now put them in every window in my house." — Keri Sanders, Editor
"I actually came across these faux linen curtains on Instagram last year and have since purchased six panels because I love the way they look in my home. I have them in the color birch which is a nice ivory hue and looks great paired with my favorite matte black curtain rod. The versatile panels can be hung three ways — through the rod pocket, through the back tabs or with curtain rings — and are available in practically any shade you can think of. While the faux linen looks like the real deal, they do come out of the package pretty wrinkled and will need a quick iron or steam. Plus, these panels are a great dupe for the Pottery Barn linen curtains. Overall, I love the look, feel and quality of these curtain panels." — Morgan Faulkner, Editorial Assistant
"As fresh takes on traditional, nostalgic design like grandmillennial and cottagecore styles have permeated the design world recently, I've been loving the resurgence of toile, in particular. I snagged two of these 100-percent cotton pillow covers for two armchairs in my living room and was pleasantly surprised with the quality. Paired with this plush down-alternative pillow insert two inches larger than the pillow covers, I now have two throw pillows that look and feel much more expensive than they are. Plus, these pillow covers come in two sizes and four other toile colors." — Laura James, Editor

"I love this soft, decorative pillow insert. It's down-alternative, meaning no feathers protrude out of this pillow. I bought this insert to go into a pillow case I had found, and many of my guests have commented on how soft it is. I plan to replace all of my throw pillow inserts with this brand, as it comes in many different sizes." — Lauren Fansler, Editor
"For less than $20 you can't beat these mustard-yellow pillow covers. The material is so soft and they look stunning on my sofa. They come in a pack of two and fit 18-by-18-inch pillow inserts." — Kayla Kitts, Managing Editor

"Farmhouse style isn't really my thing, but I love these wooden beads. I have them sitting on a stack of my favorite coffee table books in my living room. Plus, they're toddler-friendly!" — Kayla Kitts, Managing Editor
"I needed a spoon rest and came across this simple ceramic one from a Maryland-based shop called Joyful Clay on Amazon Handmade, and I love it. The simple warm white color matches my kitchen, but the shop offers the same product, as well as a mini version, in other glaze colors, too." — Laura James, Editor
"As someone who wears prescription glasses and has accumulated quite a few pairs of sunglasses, I'm always loosing glasses or trying to figure out more stylish ways to store them where they won't get scratched. I stumbled upon this quirky, handmade wooden nose stand and decided to add it to my cart. Face motifs and decor are showing up in interiors in fun ways lately, and I love how this very affordable accessory adds a whimsical touch to any space I put it in. I've styled it in an entryway holding my favorite pair of sunglasses so I won't forget them as I head out the door and on a bookshelf holding a pair of eyeglasses right where I need them." — Laura James, Editor

"I recently gave my main bathroom a design overhaul, removing the traditional medicine cabinet and replacing it with a standing shelf and this oversized artwork. This canvas print looks like I spent way more than I did — and it's huge!" — Kayla Kitts, Managing Editor
"When I tell people that by velvet sofa is from Amazon, they're always shocked. I had never had a couch that wasn't a hand-me-down, so I was definitely overwhelmed when I started my couch-buying journey. Traditional furniture stores didn't have anything close to what I was wanting (read: trendy, unique, cheap), so I turned to the internet and stumbled across Amazon's Rivet brand. I quickly found this velvet sofa that looked similar to a much pricier version I had seen online, so I figured I'd give it a try. The quality truly shocked me. Four years later of daily use, it still looks new. There's no sagging, even though my 140 lb Great Dane sleeps on it every night, and the stitching has remained intact and the cushions have only gotten more comfortable. And! I have been pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to keep clean — a damp rag makes it look brand new. All around, a purchase that I'd make over and over again." — Ellie Sanders, Assistant Editor

"Buying this coffee table was my way of getting midcentury modern-inspired design on a budget. I mean, $54 for a beautiful wooden coffee table? I've had this table for two years now, and it has held up to toddler messes, spills and more. It wipes easily and goes perfectly with my retro MCM-retro aesthetic." — Kayla Kitts, Managing Editor
"This Milliard saucer chair quickly gained attention at a family party, which prompted us to purchase one for our home. It’s soft, comfortable, surprisingly sturdy and bonus points that it folds easily. The chair required no assembly — you simply unfolded the chair from the box and it was ready to sit in. Both of my young kids love to cozy up in the chair together, while I patiently wait my turn (a second chair might be on my Amazon shopping list). The chair comes in multiple colors to match your room and also comes in a kids version and a foot rest version. With over 5K reviews and a 4.4 star rating you cannot go wrong! My only complaint is that it is spot clean only, and you can’t remove the cushion to machine wash. It’s still worth the purchase if you are looking for a cozy chair to add to your space." — Jennifer Cicatelli, Senior Manager of Commerce Analytics
