If your taste runs to modern furniture and décor from stores like West Elm, IKEA, and Target, there’s a new design destination you should check out—Walmart. Surprised? With an unexpectedly chic design line called MoDRN, Walmart now offers what it calls “elevated modern design with effortless style.”
Whether your personal aesthetic is Scandinavian Minimalist, Retro Glam, or Refined Industrial, I really think Walmart has nailed it. And since it’s Walmart, you know it’s all affordable—well, relatively. You can purchase a couch for $899 or pay $35 for a 10-piece set of kitchen tools. The point is, it all looks pricier than it actually is.
You won’t see these pieces in your local Walmart store, but you can get it all online.
I’ve been writing about and styling homes for years, so I put my expertise to work choosing the trendiest and most inspiring pieces from this amazing new collection. Here are the 12 best pieces in Walmart’s MoDRN furniture line:
1. This charming accent chair your guests will fight over
Literally nobody will believe you got a chair this cute from Walmart. The barrel shape is right on trend and the five colors are scrumptious, though we like the rose tan best.
2. A real marble coffee table for elegance beyond words
So elegant and welcoming in any living room, this round marble-topped coffee table has rose gold trim. It’s actually made with real marble, which is a steal for the price.
3. Lovely dishes to set for dinner
New dishes—yes, please. These come in amazing colors, and you can mix them with your plain white plates for a special dinner.
4. Velvety floor pillows to accommodate guests
A soft, comfy floor pillow is ideal for when you have more guests in the room than space on the couch. This pillow is one to buy in multiples. Use it on the sofa until you need it on the floor.
5. A cabinet to keep any room organized
This slate blue Scandinavian-inspired cabinet has two doors and an adjustable shelf to let you store (hide) lots of stuff. The cord management cutouts make it the perfect place for your electronics, too.
6. A rug that makes any room
You can beautify any space with a bordered area rug. The teal, mauve, and burgundy color combo of this area rug has a retro ’80s look, and in soft wool, it should last a long time.
7. Counter stools that work in every kitchen
The steel construction of these stools has a minimalist vibe that will up your kitchen design game. Get a pair of these stools in black or brown and pull them up to your island. They’re not made with real leather, but they sure look like it. What more do you need?
8. Kitchen utensils that are so Instagrammable
If your kitchen tools look tired, why not replace them with a new wood and silicone set? Your food won’t taste any different, but this set is sure to boost your meal prep experience.
9. This stunning mirrored pitcher perfect for entertaining
The asymmetrical shape and shining finish mark this gorgeous water pitcher as a high-end boutique find, not a Walmart score. We won’t tell if you won’t.
10. Pendant lighting for over the kitchen island
Minimalist yet perfect, these black (or white) wide pendants are like task lights for mealtime. The latest way to use pendant lights like these is to hang only two of them over the island. You can still use three if you have room.
11. A kitchen table to make casual meals feel fancier
You don’t need an elaborate kitchen table, but it would be nice to have one with clean lines and mid-century style. Did you know that a round table takes up less space than a rectangular one and can fit more people around it?
12. A ladder bookshelf for a storage solution that will ‘spark joy’
Marie Kondo says you should only have 30 books. But you have our permission to keep as many as you like, as long as you have a good place to put them. Ladder bookcases are especially practical because they provide lots of room and take up very little visual space. These look great on either side of a fireplace.
