I LOVE Amazon: It’s my favorite online resource for finding great home decor and furniture steals. Check out my top 5 reasons why I love them so much below:


Fast Shipping:

Almost everyone I know has Amazon Prime. Yes, it’s $100 a year, but SO worth it if you order from Amazon frequently. I don’t know about you, but I become extremely impatient when it comes to ordering items and waiting for said items to be delivered. With Prime, I can get two day shipping or even same day shipping on an abundance of items. Even some large pieces of furniture are eligible for prime (usually 3 day shipping)! If you don’t have Prime already, I highly recommend it.

Fabulous Customer Service:

First off, I have never had to wait to speak with an Amazon representative. If I am ever put on hold, it’s only for a few minutes maximum. Secondly, the actual customer service is amazing. If a mistake is made with an order, they will do everything in their power to fix it. Even if you simply have a generic question about a seller or certain product, they will go above and beyond to try and get that question answered. This is why I feel so comfortable buying large pieces of furniture from Amazon; if anything gets damaged during shipment, their team will fix this issue and make it right with the customer.

Great Return Policy:

If the customer isn’t satisfied, they aren’t satisfied. You can return almost all decor and furniture on Amazon and they make the process extremely easy. I’ve had instances where I needed a large-scale item to be returned and they usually give you an option for a UPS pickup at your door. Return labels are super easy to just print out or you can have one mailed to you if you don’t have access to a printer.

Amazing Selection:

I know this goes without saying but the selection is unbeatable. With just one search you can find almost anything you’re looking for. From gold decor to mirrored furniture, Amazon is a great resource for all of your glam needs. Not only that, but you can find endless bargain deals which would be twice as expensive on another site. Listed below this post are some of my favorite Amazon finds!

Easy to Include Assembly:

On almost every large-scale (or even small-scale) item you find, there’s going to be an “assembly” option before check out. This is super convenient if you aren’t handy OR don’t have much time to put furniture together!

A bonus reason for shopping on Amazon is the “buy used” option. This is great for people who have an obsession with coffee table books but don’t want to pay the full price tag!
