Online retailers are quickly becoming the best way to shop for furniture. More and more online only stores are offering free shipping, even on large pieces. The recently redesigned AllModern.com ships all orders over $69 to all 50 states and Canada for free. AllModern's recent site redesign is an effort to make the shop more user-friendly. In addition to streamlining the style with more visible white space, the redesign moved the product categories from an awkward sidebar to the top of the site. From there it's easy to browse by category, brand, or, if you're like us, skip straight to the sale section. (You can compare the designs by looking at AllModern from last month via Way Back Machine.) The Brands page of Allmodern.com reads like a who's who of modern design brands. Alessis, Gus*, Herman Miller, Knoll, to name a few. But the e-commerce site also works with emerging and independent designers, like Dario Antonioni, who designed the Orange22 Natural Bench. Pricing is competitive, especially when factoring in the free shipping. Plus, the site often runs month-long sales, which are advertised in splashes on the front page.
