Ultimately, you should shop wherever you want, regardless of whether the brand or retailer in question is cool, trendy, or well-known. But there’s something undeniably satisfying about being able to say you buy your home goods at certain places. For instance, if you get your cookware from Le Creuset, we’re taking notice. If your bedding and bath staples are from Parachute, we’re looking respectfully. Another brand whose street cred will never diminish is, of course, Pottery Barn. Whether you’re in need of a new sofa, rug, or lighting fixture, you’ll always be able to find something equally stylish and functional there. It’s no secret that our editors can’t get enough of their stuff, which is why we thought it might be helpful to round up all their picks in one spot. So check out these tried-and-tested finds below, and bookmark this resource to have on hand for your next online shopping escapade (like Memorial Day Weekend!) — it’s bound to come in handy.

The most notable features of the Astoria platform bed are definitely its turned legs, which add just the right amount of whimsy to this otherwise simple frame. "I love my Astoria bed," Commerce SEO Editor Sarah says. "It’s simple, it’s chic, and it always gets compliments. It’s survived three moves now, so you know it’s a breeze to set up, though I should note that Pottery Barn does the initial setup for you with its white glove delivery!" The bed comes in king and queen sizes and two different finishes.

If you're looking for a good rug for areas that tend to be messy on occasion, such as the dining room, look no further than the Jordie rug. Its wide bouclé-style weave makes cleanup easy for your vacuum, and it also creates texture and adds visual interest. The weave has some charming irregularities, which look even better next to the fringe that lines both ends. You definitely want to place this rug somewhere where it'll be seen by many.

The Carmel sofa instantly caught our eye when we visited Pottery Barn's showroom because of its deep seats and relaxed yet supportive back incline. It's available in four different widths, so whether you're working with no space or all the space, it's a great pick. This is especially true if you're looking for a sofa that lends some coastal charm.

Channel your inner Laura Ingalls with this Americana-inspired quilt. Best List editor Britt describes it as feeling as close to homemade as you can get. "It has charming patchwork in a refreshing colorway that easily brightens up my space," she says. "I love layering it with my bedding as a finishing touch for my bedroom. It also adds a nice weight to the sheets for a cozy night's rest." You can also reverse the multicolored side for a subtler blue-striped pattern.

Just when we thought we'd seen it all, Pottery Barn decided to pleasantly surprise us with a shag rug that's easy to take care of. This microplush rug is every bit as soft as you'd expect, but you'll also be able to vacuum it and keep it free of stains. The rug's durable construction and latex backing allow it to withstand heavy foot traffic. And, of course, we had to give it a 10 out of 10 in the fluff factor department.

We deemed the Jake Sofa Pottery Barn's best statement-making couch, and it's easy to see why. It's on sale now in a stunning brown leather, which sports a slightly distressed, almost suede-like finish. The sofa's contrasting wooden frame only makes it all the more striking. You'll find that the firmness differs a bit between the back and seat cushions, but both provide plenty of comfort and support.

Embrace modernity and reject tradition with the Cayman bed, which we rated highly on appearance and durability. This frame lies low to the ground so you won't have to struggle to hop on, which will come in clutch after particularly tiring days. The bed's kiln-dried wood construction resists cracking, warping, and mildew, so it'll survive lots of moves and summer humidity. What's more, its clean angles and no-frills design will imbue your bedroom with an upscale coastal look.

Plus, it's on sale now in three easy-to-style colors.

Introducing a canopy bed into your room is a wonderful way to instantly add a bit of whimsy. The Farmhouse canopy bed certainly does that, but it also manages to remain simple and practical in its design thanks to its clean lines and pared-back construction. The canopy doesn’t reach too high, nor does the bed frame come all the way to the ground, making it suited for rooms in which excess space is limited. This also means you get a generous storage space underneath for out-of-season clothes and linens.
