Amazon furniture and decor hidden gems do exist — and in droves — it’s just a matter of knowing how to actually find them. Because with so much stuff available on the online platform nowadays, you honestly need a lot of time and a little bit of a keen eye just to sort through it all.

Lucky for you, our team has already shared some of the best Amazon shopping tips based on style preferences. Taking it one step further, though, I decided to poll Apartment Therapy editors on their own personal favorite Amazon finds, straight out of their homes or decorating wishlists (think: chic side tables, unique sconces, expensive-looking decorative trays, and more — all staff-approved and under $100). Best of all, you’d never guess the seven products below came from the online retailer in the first place.

“I can't get over the smart and stylish design of this side table with rattan detailing. I love the ledge, which allows you to display magazines or a slim art book. I would never guess this is from Amazon (or so cheap at just under $70)!" —Alicia Kort, Senior Commerce Editor

“I love that viral TikTok candle warmer lamp that everyone is obsessed with. It looks so cute, adds some warmth to my kitchen counter, and keeps my expensive candles lasting forever!” — Tara Bellucci, News & Culture Director

“Coming in at just $13, this tray is perfect for anyone in the market for a budget-friendly way to add a touch of glamour to their space. So whether you’re looking for a stylish way to display your day-to-day essentials or a piece of decor that’ll bring some vintage flair to your home, I think you’re going to love this mirror.” —Sarah Vazquez, Commerce SEO Editor

“I’m picky about my home decor, so when I started searching for wireless sconces that actually looked pretty, I knew just any old pair wouldn’t do. I was surprised to find the perfect set from Amazon, though: Two battery-operated lights with a timeless white shade and curved brass base. I love the fun shape most of all, but they also have 16 different color temperature options you can alternate between via remote control.” —Blair Donovan, Style Editor

“I gifted this OSALADI croissant night light from Amazon to my boyfriend for his birthday, but secretly (shh, don't tell him!), it was also a gift for me! We keep it in our living room on the television console, and it's the perfect amount of light for movie nights and adds a moody ambiance during cocktail parties. It's a fabulous conversation-starter for under $20.” —Cullen Ormond, Home Associate Editor

“I've only ever had bulky plastic silverware drawer organizers that somehow collected crumbs and too many twist ties. It never occurred to me there was another way to live! Then I landed on this stylish bamboo organizer for less than $20. It's perfect for narrow drawers (like mine) or for making the most of a standard drawer, and its staggered, wooden structure makes it look built-in." —Sofia Rivera, Associate Lifestyle Editor

“Trays make everything look more luxe, especially marble designs. I can’t believe Amazon has this pretty pink stone version for less than $60. I’d use it to corral perfume on a vanity, but it could work for jewelry storage or other odds and ends, too. It’s quite sizable for the price.” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director
