While we love places like West Elm for their modern furniture pieces, we don’t love the often high prices. That’s why when we come across a lookalike item for much cheaper, we get excited—although it can be hard to determine whether or not those budget-friendly options are good quality. Enter Amazon (of course). We’ve already covered Amazon’s Stone & Beam line, which offers a Pottery Barn-like look for less, but there’s another in-house brand that has caught our eye: Rivet. Full of mid-century modern furniture, lighting, and decor, Rivet is for anyone who loves that kind of look but is looking for a good kind of sticker shock. We scoped out the shop and rounded up our favorite finds below.

Rivet Axel Lift-Up Storage Side Table

We love a good multifunctional piece of furniture (who doesn’t?). This sturdy wood table has a lift-up top that’s perfect for storing smaller objects like books. If you’ve been loving this look but can’t afford to spend nearly $1,000, it’s an awesome alternative.

Rivet Mid-Century Swiveling Wall Sconce

This affordable matte black wall sconce is an excellent option for those looking to jazz up their bedroom or reading nook. At $60, you can snag two for a surprisingly reasonable price.

Rivet Aiden Tufted Leather Sofa

Though this leather sofa is still pricey, sofas are generally a big-ticket home item—and this has enough style to justify the price. The mid-century modern aesthetic and versatility of the piece make it a standout choice, and the style is also available as a chair, chaise, and ottoman.

Rivet Metal Chandelier 

We can’t resist a good pendant light with Edison bulbs to boot, and the good news is that Rivet offers this super stylish option that would look stunning over a dining table or in a living room.

Rivet Curved Desk

This MCM-style desk is distinctive and sophisticated—and looks way more expensive than it is. Already have a work station? This piece would also work as a vanity or entryway table.

Rivet Huxley Accent Chair

We love this bold burnt orange fabric and classic silhouette (but if you prefer, it’s also available in more neutral colors). If you’re looking to set up a reading nook in your space, this type of seating option is perfect.

Rivet Octagon Wall Mirror

A geometric mirror is always a great choice for dressing up a neglected wall. This wooden piece is calling our name (and would also look lovely hung above the desk featured above) while evoking elements of much more expensive similar pieces.

Rivet Steel Arc Floor Lamp

Arc lamps are having a major moment, but they can be expensive unless you do a bit of digging. We were thrilled to come across this piece for under $80—we’ve seen lookalikes for so much more!
