The Best Furniture On Amazon, Based On Excellent Ratings & Reviews

Furnishing an entire house or apartment is no small undertaking. It’s a daunting task at best, from big-picture considerations like designing layout and color palette to nailing down the little details like figuring out how your grandmother’s antique lamp fits in with the rest of the décor. Perhaps you’ve created a Pinterest board or ripped out pages from Architectural Digest to save in a folder. But then comes the real legwork of deciding on major purchases, like a couch and coffee table, bed and dresser, dining room table and chairs — all the best furniture for your space.

Luckily, these days there’s no need to spend precious weekend hours schlepping to furniture stores (though seeing pieces in person can sometimes be very helpful with designing and laying out your space). Perhaps surprisingly, Amazon has a wide selection of chic and well-priced furniture for every room of the house — and fro Prime members, free two day shipping for big items like a couch or dresser can actually save you quite a lot of money.

Whether you’re a fan of Midcentury-Modern design, Hollywood glam or prefer an industrial or rustic look, we’ve combed through both enthusiastic five-star reviews and deal-breaker one-star reviews to find the best options to suit all tastes. Here are our top picks for the best furniture you can get right on Amazon.


Best Living Room Furniture

Stone & Beam Bradbury Chesterfield

A classic Chesterfield sofa works with a variety of décor, from traditional and contemporary to glam. This handsome piece is available in leather and stain-resistant upholstered fabric in a range of neutrals, including a soft pepper black and a textured denim-like navy. A coordinating accent chair and ottoman are sold separately as part of the set, which gets 4.7 stars from 500 satisfied customers who say that it’s well made, comfortable, and high quality. 

“Great couch, excellent quality,” says one five-star reviewer. “It is much more comfortable than it appears in pictures. The craftsmanship and stitching is stellar and I can tell that this will hold up over the years.”


Modway Engage Sofa

Another modern classic, this Midcentury-style sofa is a quintessential living room piece. It features a tufted tight-back style, angled arms, and firm, tailored cushions, plus a solid wooden base and tapered legs in cherry-color finish. For upholstery options, there are more than 10 fabrics available, from bright “atomic red” or teal to subdued neutrals, all reminiscent of the Mad Men era. The Engage line from Modway includes a coordinating loveseat and a matching armchair and ottoman, sold separately. Roughly 85 percent of nearly 500 customers give it four or five stars.  

 “I have tracked the prices of this sofa for about a year and I have always liked its style and size,” says a pleased five-star reviewer. “…I couldn’t be more pleased with the purchase. It is literally everything I imagined it to be: sturdy, elegant, and it has the perfect balance of practicality with midcentury-modern style that makes it stand out in any living room setting.”


Emerald Home Chandler Coffee Table

This high-quality coffee table has a modern, rustic-chic look with industrial metal details. It’s made of distressed hardwood, with dark steel angled legs with chunky hardware. Having a bottom shelf for stacking magazines and stashing the remote is super handy, so objects of interest can be set on top. Emerald Home’s Chandler line includes coordinating side tables and a media cabinet, sold separately, and options for finishes range from whitewash to smokey charcoal to pine dark brown. More than 1,800 reviewers give the furniture an average 4.6 stars. 

 “Absolutely perfect,” says a five-star reviewer. “Waited nearly 3 years to find the perfect coffee table in size, appearance and price, and this ticks all the boxes…This table is solid, sturdy, gorgeous, and real wood. And for that, the price cannot be beat.” 

 “So beautiful and stylish,” agrees another satisfied customer. “Wood is heavy and unique. Very easy to put together. Great buy!” 


Monarch Specialties Modern Coffee Table

With ultra-glam Hollywood Regency details, this coffee table pairs perfectly with a thick shag rug, yet with clean lines and a modern look, it also works well in any contemporary living room setting. Set on a polished chrome frame, the top comes in matte-finish natural or dark taupe, plus a high-style, glossy white. There’s a coordinating C-side table sold separately, part of a line that gets a 4.6 rating from more than 1,400 reviewers — and nearly 300 enthusiastic customers use the word “love” to describe it. 

“Love, love, love, this table,” says one five-star reviewer. “This was an awesome buy. It gives my living room the luxurious feel I was going for….Super happy with this purchase.”

Walker Edison Furniture Company Midcentury-Modern Wood Media Cabinet

The piece has two handled doors for storage and an open middle section with a glass shelf. It comes in other sizes and configurations, and several finishes including a striking dark walnut and soft slate gray.

Walker Edison Furniture Company 6-Shelf Wood Console

Here’s another handsome piece of furniture from Walker Edison. With its contemporary style and clean lines, it works in a variety of modern and traditional settings. Constructed with high-quality MDF wood, its shelves are adjustable to accommodate storage needs and there are ports in the back to keep cables  out of sight. Like the Midcentury-Modern piece above, the console comes in other sizes and configurations. With a whopping number of reviews from nearly 12,000 customers, the line gets a 4.5 rating. 

 “This is definitely a solid expensive looking piece of furniture,” says a recent reviewer, who gives it five stars. “I love the height and sturdiness. It is available in several colors so that is an added plus as well.”


Christopher Knight Home Mervynn Midcentury-Modern Recliner

Christopher Knight Home Mervynn Midcentury-Modern Recliner

This attractive chair from Christopher Knight is a fabulous find and receives high marks across the board for style and quality. Along with Midcentury-Modern details, such a button-tufted back, piping detail throughout, and tapered wooden legs, a major highlight among features is that it’s a recliner — but doesn’t look like line one. Rather than your typical oversized, bulky piece, the streamlined chair’s firm, comfortable cushion slides back to reveal a slim, well-designed dual-level footrest. 

“I am impressed with the quality and the color is attractive,” says one satisfied customer.  “I got a lot of compliments from friends and family… Very sturdy and the recliner is an added bonus.”

“Packaging was A+ and the ease of putting it together was fantastic,” says another five-star reviewer. “Screw in feet, snap in back, and recline!…The color is beautiful and feels great. The quality is superb and the price is even better. Love these chairs!”


Best Bedroom Furniture

Novogratz Marion Canopy Bed Frame

For a statement piece in your bedroom, look no further than this modern canopy bed from Novogratz. It comes in a variety of finishes, including a striking metallic gold along with black, gray, and white. The metal frame is solidly constructed, with a headboard, footboard, and metal slats across the base to support a deep mattress, so no box spring is required. Nearly 1,000 customers give it an average 4.3 stars, and several say that it’s easy to assemble. Overall, it’s a well priced, high-quality bed that will add a hint of luxury to your sleeping quarters. 

 “I love the esthetic that this bed gives to a room—and the price is very affordable,” says a customer who gives it five stars. “Want to add style at a low cost, I highly recommend this bed. I’m not that easily impressed, but this bed is amazing.”


Dumee Metal Bed Frame

With vintagey vibes, this iron metal bed is simple yet elegant. Its railed headboard and footboard are detailed with decorative finials, and it’s available in several finishes that give it an heirloom look, including antique brown, bronze, white and black. It also comes in a lovely cornflower blue that would give any neutral bedroom a soft splash of color. The base has 11 metal slats to support a mattress, so you can skip the box spring, plus there’s a decent amount of under-bed storage space. More than 1,500 reviewers give it an average 4.4 stars, and several customers note that it’s sturdy and doesn’t squeak.

“Amazing bed,” says one enthusiastic five-star reviewer. “Just what I have always wanted. Easy to put together solo and sturdy and matches my decor perfectly!!”


Novogratz Kelly Upholstered Storage Platform Bed

Well-concealed storage space is always a perk, particularly in bedrooms that lack square footage for a dresser or have a small minimal closet space (if there’s even a closet!). For those who don’t love the idea of under-bed storage bins—which can make a space look cluttered and get dusty—there’s nothing better than a platform bed frame with deep drawers. This upholstered linen bed from Novogratz is a relative steal, with a Queen costing about $400. The headboard and footboard are lightly padded, and it’s available in three neutral shades, plus a pretty Kelley green. More than 650 reviewers give it an average  4.4 rating. 

 “Wow….all I can say is what an amazing purchase this was,” touts one five-star reviewer. “The fabric I chose was very denim-like and I love it. Easy to assemble, sturdy, amazing for storage… essentially all of the things I was looking for. I can’t think of a single thing someone could find that is wrong with it. 10/10 would buy again.”


24KF Tufted Ottoman Bench

A tufted upholstered bench adds a touch of elegance to any bedroom, plus it’s always nice to have a place to sit that isn’t your bed. This drop-dead gorgeous piece comes in navy, dark gray, and ivory, and its distressed iron frame has a subtle sheen for an overall glam look. The bench is available in two lengths, and the line includes a coordinating headboard, sold separately. It gets a 4.7 rating, and 82 percent of nearly 200 customers give it five stars.

 “I absolutely love this piece,” says one of the five-star reviewers. “It was easy to assemble and looks just like the pictures. Great purchase!” 

“Great looking bench in our bedroom,” says another. “This bench is exactly what we are looking for. The cloth is very soft and stylish. The color adds a warm and modern style to my room. The structure is very sturdy and well-made. The assembly is very easy to install.”


Hofma 3-Drawer Dresser

This three-drawer chest has a rustic look, but its steel legs and clean lines keep it modern and fresh. Several customers say that drawers are relatively deep and slide smoothly on the metal tracks — a must-have feature for a dresser. The piece has a slim, space-saving silhouette, making it ideal for smaller bedrooms, or to use inside a closet for extra storage. Customers give it an average 4.5-star rating. 

“In my opinion far nicer than anything you will find browsing the aisles of Walmart or Target,” says one recent five-star reviewer. “It’s a very solid piece, and the surfaces have a nice texture. The interior of the drawers have the same texture as the outside surface areas. These small touches make a huge difference in how you perceive this piece of furniture.”


Safavieh Home Collection Raina 3-Drawer Nightstand

This nightstand from Safavieh will add instant polish to any bedroom. It has a classic Greek key design on front, with three drawers set on a base with chunky square feet. Constructed of rubberwood — a tropical hardwood of medium density — it comes in five finishes, including a striking red and an attractive navy, and it’s accented with either polished gold or chrome hardware. Nearly 75 percent of reviewers give it four or five stars. 

“My favorite thing about my room!” says one happy customer, who purchased two. “They add a touch of elegance and the drawers slide open/close very easily. High quality furniture!”


Best Dining Room Furniture

Modway Lippa Midcentury-Modern Dining Table

Influenced by Eero Saarinen’s iconic dining table, this showstopper has a faux-marble top and a high-gloss pedestal base available in white, black, gold and rose gold (featured here), with curves and overall proportions that make it look like the real deal. It’s available in additional sizes and finishes, and nearly 75 percent of reviewers give the table a five-star rating. For lovers of Midcentury-Modern design, it’s a piece that’ll quicken your heartbeat every time you step into your dining room. 

“This table is amazing,” says a five-star reviewer. “Totally worth it!! I was looking for a marble table for angling time, and the price was often out of my budget. Until I found this table!! Omg, amazing. It looks so nice, so elegant and modern. People always compliment my new table.”


Modway Alacrity Rustic Farmhouse Dining Table

Modway’s industrial chic Alacrity table is a head-turner — and a solid piece of furniture that’s sure to anchor any dining area. Details like its angled, tapered legs crossed metal bars underneath its galvanized metal top, and mix of matte and polished surfaces make it a standout. For smaller spaces or kitchens, it also comes in a 36-inch square. Nearly 75 percent of customers give a five-star review. 

“LOVE LOVE LOVE this table,” says an enthusiastic customer. “I didn’t not want the standard and overdone wooden table— this gave me everything I wanted! It’s sleek, modern, and a conversation piece.”

“Visually very attractive,” says another. “Good attention to detail. Robust. Great value.”


Poly & Bark Industrial Chair

This chair takes cues from the Tolix Marais chair, designed in 1934 by a French metalworker named Xavier Pauchard. Poly & Bark’s version of the now ubiquitous piece comes in classic polished gunmetal — a great match for the Modway table above — along with bronze, black, white and an appealing bright yellow. Feet caps will prevent the chairs from scratching floors, and they get bonus points for being stackable. They’re sold in singles or a set, and nearly 80 percent of more than 3,000 customers give them five stars.  

“This chair is incredibly sturdy for my desk… so I bought 6 more and replaced my dining table chairs!” says a satisfied customer. “Great price for what you get! Sturdy… well built…gorgeous color… super stylish modern or farm style look and I am sure it will last for years… Couldn’t be more happy!”


Furmax Midcentury-Modern Chair

Available in poppy colors including orange and red, these best-selling chairs are a take on the iconic Eames Eiffel Chair. In addition to great design for a great price, they’re considerably comfortable to sit in, thanks to the seat’s ergonomic shape. Made of durable molded plastic with a matte finish that wipes clean, they’re an especially smart choice for parents who don’t want to sacrifice style for practicality. Another plus is that they’re sturdy, with a base constructed of metal and real wood. Over 3,000 reviewers give them an average 4.4 stars.

“These are DEFINITELY Mom-approved!” says an enthusiastic five-star reviewer. “They comfortably fit everyone in our family from age 2-38 without any issues! They haven’t threatened to tip over at all, despite the 2 yr old climbing up & down on them 300 times already! They are incredibly easy to clean…just wipe right off with a damp dishcloth.”


Mexiya Irina Dining Chair

Mexiya knocked it out of the park with this gorgeous, trend-forward dining chair. It’s upholstered in soft velvet, with details such as tufted channeling around the back, pretty tapered legs, and gently sloped sides that create an elegant silhouette. Polished chrome or gold hardware complete the high-end look. Customers give them an average 4.9 stars for excellent design and easy assembling. 

“I absolutely love these chairs!!!!” says a thrilled five-star reviewer. “Very easy to assemble, very sturdy, and comfortable. I love to entertain so these chairs create the exact vibe needed for family events. Would absolutely purchase again and recommend to friends!”

The Midcentury-Modern piece is part of Modway’s Render collection, which customers give an average 4.5 stars.

“Very happy with my purchase!” says a recent five-star reviewer. “The veneer has a matte finish/texture which enhances the overall appearance….everything fit perfectly and went together easily, no splitting or chipping. It’s a heavy, sturdy piece.”
