It’s surprisingly easy to come up with a shopping list of everything a home is missing. But figuring out where to actually take that shopping list to purchase said items? Not quite as easy. This is especially true if you’re working on a tight budget, and everything on your shopping list is a piece of furniture rather than a small decorative item.

So without further ado, scroll through to start furnishing your digs and shop our three favorites from each along the way.
For Statement Accents: ABC Carpet & Home
Though some of its items tend to be on the more expensive side, ABC Carpet & Home carries a lot of accent pieces worth investing in, and they won’t break the bank if you save up for them. It’s a multibrand, boutique-type store, but it also carries its own line: a mix of elegant and industrial styles that balances form with function. If you don’t want to spend too much on bigger-ticket items like sofas or bed frames, invest in a personality-packed, artful accent chair or desk.
