Like Temple & Webster, Zanui also offers an extensive product range to help Australians transform their homes. From colourful rugs through to designer lighting, decorative accents and a huge range of kids furniture all online, you’ll be able to find everything you need to deck out your entire home.
And if you’re looking to buy a sofa online, Zanui has plenty on offer. From 2 seater sofas, through to chaises and modular lounges, you’ll find something to suit your requirements in a range of sizes, colours and fabrics.
Look, we all love Hans Wegner, Isamu Noguchi, Eames and Marcel Breuer designs as much as the next person, but it’s pretty hard to afford these pieces without a very sizable bank account. So how do you get that premium designer look and feel, without spending an absolute fortune? Shhh, they’re called Interiors Secret.

They’re disrupting the furniture industry one day at a time, which also includes challenging traditional market pricing guidelines.

6. Castlery – quality mid-century modern furniture
If you haven’t heard of this brand yet, you probably have stumbled upon it while scrolling through #HomeInspo pics on Instagram. Castlery’s one not to miss on this list for neutral, elegant and great quality furniture. You’ll find a lot of modern walnut tones, dark wood with brass accents, and mid-century modern pieces with a fresh twist! The best part about online shopping at Castlery is they showcase a ‘shop the look’ option to help you visualise the pieces together for some great buying ideas.
7. Freedom – stylish and affordable online furniture store
Oh Freedom! You know they’ve just gotta be on this list. This is a furniture brand that’s been around since the 80s, and now with multiple stores set across the country. But their online store is a super helpful tool if you want to see the full range of their furniture and home décor. There’s something there for everyone at any style and budget.
A little FYI for their sofa collection - their range will make you sigh with relief as there's plenty of options. Keen on a particular lounge style but not sure it will fit in your space? Chances are, Freedom will have them in a smaller, or modular size. Want a sofa design in a left or right facing chaise? They probably have that one too, coming at you with a variety of fabric to choose from. Win!
If it’s sofas you’re after, be it a fabric, leather, or a velvet one, you can trust Lounge Lovers to have them for you in a variety of colours, sizes and modular options! But don’t be fooled by the name, it’s not just the lounges - you’ll be delighted at the quality, design and craftsmanship that the rest of their furniture carries. It’s a testament to their brand ethos of delivering high quality, aesthetically pleasing and yet affordable furniture.

10. Matt Blatt – the place for modern furniture online
Ever daydreamed about coming home to your inner-city penthouse after a long day at your high-flying job and pouring yourself a martini? Matt Blatt is probably the online furniture retailer for you.
Matt Blatt’s range gives off some serious Mad Men and ‘Anna Wintour’s office’ kind of vibes – and for good reason. The business is renowned for producing stylish, high-quality pieces, as well as a good range of replica designer furniture.
It truly is the online destination for decorators who want up-to-the-minute furniture with a modern and contemporary edge.
11. Koskela – contemporary furniture with a sustainable twist
If you care deeply about our planet and its people (and we all should), then Koskela’s vision will probably appeal to you. The team at Koskela believe in treading as lightly as possible when it comes to our planet, and this is reflected in the way they work, the materials they source, what they sell and how they treat people.
All of Koskela’s furniture is produced in Australia so that they know how the product is made and are able to have a closer relationship with the people involved in making it.
They also believe in social enterprise, with a portion of all sales going towards the indigenous communities that they work with to produce unique contemporary design products. If you’re arty, want furniture that is truly interesting, and love the likes of Marimekko, Gorman, Scandinavian and Japanese design, then we think you’ll adore Koskela and everything it has to offer.
Oh, Coco Republic, where do we start? Firstly, we’re convinced that this is the place to purchase elegant and stylish furniture online. It’s kind of New York socialite meets inner-city Sydney terrace splashed all over the pages of Vogue Living. It’s the kind of furniture you’d expect your stylish rich aunt to have, and she probably sips cups of tea in a Marchesa ball gown for fun.
Think gilded glass coffee tables, chesterfield sofas, watercolour illustrations, fluffy cushions, ginger jars and pieces of coral. When it comes to furniture from Coco Republic, no detail is spared. Trust us, every design element has been thought about.
Whether you’ve got a minimalist Japanese interior, a Hamptons inspired living room or a luxurious mid-century dining room complete with a ritzy brass drinks trolley, everything you find on Coco Republic will have a sprinkling of luxury at the very least.
If you’re a fan of The Design Files, you’ve probably come across Fenton & Fenton. Owned by Melbourne-based Lucy Fenton, the store has been around for 12 years, and in that time has built a loyal cult following.
Fenton & Fenton fans are bold, experimental, and not afraid of colour. The store is famous for stocking a range of well-known brands doing the rounds in the design world. Brands like Seletti, Sarah Ellison, Sally Kent and Woodrow. In addition, if you were looking for some art to grace your walls, the store stocks a range of beautiful sculptures, limited edition photographic prints, illustrations and paintings by both Australian and international artists.
If you’re chasing Cesca chairs, a Wassily, a travertine hall table or marble plinth, Curated Spaces have got you covered. Amassing a huge Instagram following in recent years, the team behind Curated Spaces are super passionate about sustainability and sourcing gorgeous vintage furniture from all around the world.
The team is run by a group of designers and writers who no doubt have a very good eye for interiors. Occasionally they also sell a selection of new designer furniture and decor, but since the majority of their items are vintage one-offs, you’ve gotta be quick to snap them up.

15. West Elm – modern furniture with a Brooklyn soul
As if we were going to forget about West Elm. These guys are an institution, having been around since 2002. They’re really popular, and it’s not hard to see why. The company is built on an ethos of affordable modern design with a conscience. 90% of West Elm’s products are designed in-house, and the majority of materials used to create each collection is sustainably sourced and Fair Trade Certified.
If you’re a fan of Scandinavian, mid-century, and art-deco shapes, you’re sure to find exactly what you’re looking for at West Elm.
Sydney-based MCM House needs to be on this list. You know that obsession we all have with soft, deep, linen lounges? You can pretty much credit MCM House for popularising that look. Charles Hinckfuss heads-up the brand – he originally wanted to be a painter but ended up sourcing and selling antique furniture. Years of doing this developed his eye for design. This allowed him to create a brand where every piece is designed to be able to sit alongside furniture and decor from any style or period. Cool, right?
The brand is focused on timeless, classic and contemporary furniture, and while it might cost you a bit of coin, it’s the kind of design that stands the test of time from both an aesthetic and quality perspective. According to Charles, the brand is aspirational, yet attainable, and we love that.
