As a home editor, I’ve written about décor for publications from MyDomaine, where I was previously managing editor, to Lonny to Hunker, covering everything from Zara Home items that look designer to Anthropologie-approved trends to watch to how to get a French-girl apartment on an IKEA budget. In other words, I’ve spent a lot of time scrolling through the new arrivals section of home décor retailers’ sites in search of the coolest items (aka shopping).
Although it’s part of my job to seek out under-the-radar brands, not even a home editor can’t resist the allure of affordable wares at Target and IKEA. Whether I’m sourcing everyday basics at realistic price points or looking for thrifty, trend-forward pieces, Target and IKEA always deliver. So what’s on my radar now? From a $20 side table in the color that’s about to be everywhere this fall to an $8 set of wine glasses that’ll lend a refined edge to any table, keep scrolling to see the 19 pieces I’m currently coveting and shop the edit for yourself.
