West Elm is one of the most popular furniture retailers, and it’s not hard to see why. Not only does the brand have an expansive collection of home goods, but all of its pieces fit a specific, highly coveted aesthetic — namely, mid-century modern sophistication. West Elm’s furniture isn’t loud. Instead, it has the power to tie a space together and give it a calming, contemporary aura. For those reasons, it was one of the first stops in our Personal Shopper series.

What Furniture Brands Are Like West Elm?

Perhaps you’re already familiar with West Elm’s best-selling pieces, whether you’ve bought furniture from them before or you’re browsing for your next big-ticket purchase, and you wish you had some additional options. If that’s the case, we found 10 retailers who have also mastered the mid-century aesthetic and whose products will fit right in with your West Elm pieces. (Some of them might also save you a good chunk of change.) They’re all definitely worth a look!

Do you have any furniture brands that remind you of West Elm? We want to hear all about them! Let us know in the comment section below.


With AllModern, the aesthetic is in the name. Compared to many others in its category, this retailer is quite affordable, regardless of what you’re looking for. Their popular bed frames, slope dining chairs, and other budget-friendly pieces will elevate every room in your home and last you a lifetime. Take this designer glass dining table, for example. Its wooden legs flare out in a distinctly retro fashion and have rounded edges that are Scandi-inspired. We like that its round shape makes it small-space-friendly, too.


Burrow is an editor favorite, especially when it comes to living room seating. Not only are their customizable sofas super stylish, but they arrive in modules that allow for quick and easy assembly. In particular, the Nomad sofa is a hit among shoppers because of its easy-to-style silhouette, small-space-friendly size, and chic upholstery options. If you opt for the full-grain leather, you’ll find it to be smooth and soft, not to mention highly durable. Of course, Burrow also offers contemporary bedroom and dining room pieces, as well as outdoor furniture.


For furniture that looks great in any space, head to Article. Many of their pieces are designed to be easy to assemble and boast streamlined, minimalist silhouettes. The Vireo dresser in particular maintains the signature mid-century style Article has built its foundation on, with a modular frame and integrated handles. This piece would work well in the bedroom, though it could also reside by your dining table to hold extra dishware, or in the living room. In other words, it’s a versatile furnishing you’ll have in your home for years to come.


We have an entire post dedicated to DTC brand Castlery, where we deemed it the “Brooklinen of furniture” thanks to its reasonably priced yet high-quality products. When you shop at Castlery, you’ll find furniture that strikes a balance between contemporary and classic, especially where the living room, bedroom, and dining room are concerned. You’ll find many unique items, such as the Vincent coffee table set, which is actually two small walnut tables pushed together. You can keep them next to each other, or position them separately as side tables should you need a bit of storage space in different areas.

Joss & Main

Wayfair also has many solid mid-century pieces, but if you want something a little more upscale, you’ll want to check out their sister site, Joss & Main. Their furniture and decor will make your home feel grown-up and add a sophisticated touch wherever you might need it. Adding an accent chair is the quickest way to create an inviting corner, which is why we suggest having a look at the Julina armchair. It arrives fully assembled and sports a sturdy wood frame, which is nicely juxtaposed with moss-green cushions. The chair is pretty enough to double as a work of art, but its reclined silhouette also allows you to kick back and relax.

Nathan James

As a company, Nathan James is built on the winning trifecta of style, easy assembly, and affordable prices. You’ll find several Scandi-chic pieces among their many offerings, as well as some classic mid-century designs, such as this acacia nightstand. Its long legs help create the illusion of spaciousness when, in reality, this side table could easily fit into the tightest of corners. If you need anything on four legs, whether it’s a table, storage cabinet, or desk, you have to check out this site. A lot of their items have nice accents, too, including rattan panels and brass details.


If you’re a fan of West Elm’s sleek style and top-notch craftsmanship, Arhaus is right up your alley. The brand focuses on artisan-crafted furniture and home decor, showcasing unique designs and eco-friendly materials. Picture your place with handcrafted pieces inspired by nature and cultures from around the world (re: the Malta Leather Sofa). Whether you’re into Arhaus’ rustic style or eco-conscious values, the brand matches you with carefully selected pieces to fit your style and beliefs.

Sundays Furniture

Owned and operated by four friends and designers, Sundays Furniture was born out of a shared goal: to create high-quality, timeless furniture pieces that are built to last and easily accessible. Meeting every Sunday, they established the company, hence the name. Similar to West Elm, Sundays Furniture offers contemporary designs that are stylish and modern. Their tuck-in dining chair is thoughtfully made and timeless, resembling something you could find at West Elm.

Grandin Road

Unlike the other retailers, Grandin Road doesn’t only specialize in mid-century modern-inspired designs, though you’ll definitely still find a decent number of them on the site. In general, their furniture and decor are neutral in color, and if you’re balling on a budget, you’ll want to hit up their huge clearance section. While browsing, we came across this stunning table lamp, which dazzles in brass and sports a marble base. Its star feature, however, is its dome-shaped shade, which is a classic mid-century design. Place the lamp on your nightstand, side table, or desk for some pleasant ambient lighting.

World Market

We’re more familiar with World Market for their giftable decor section and seasonal holiday offerings, but you’ll be happy to learn that they have a pretty impressive furniture section, too. You’ll find some beautiful pieces, such as this two-toned sideboard. It’s largely made of acacia wood, though it also has vintage walnut details and legs made of powder-coated metal for added sturdiness. World Market’s seating is also very mid-century modern inspired; their velvet and leather sofas and chairs serve as strong complementary pieces to the many simple wooden tables and accent cabinets on offer. We could scroll through them all day!
