Of the many joys in life, one of the simplest is a shopping spree at Target, a place you go in looking for one thing but come out with several other pieces you never knew you needed. It happens to the best of us—including interior designers.

With a wide range of decor collections, each boasting a unique aesthetic, Target is a must-shop for decorators. Keep reading to learn what nine design experts have at the top of their Target wish lists right now.

A Fringed Basket

You can never have enough storage, especially if you have little ones. Both Sarah Wittenbraker and Amber Lewis head to Target to snatch up children’s room accessories, gravitating toward its variety of baskets for keeping toys tidy. “Target is the perfect place to find smaller knickknacks and great baskets,” says Lewis.

A Crowd-Pleasing Cheese Board

When you’re in need of a last-minute spread that wows, cheese and charcuterie never fail. Serve it up on this stylish and sturdy option (it’s made of marble!), an entertaining must for designer Katrina Blair Sullivan.

A Buzzy Throw Pillow

All about bright, bold style, Shavonda Gardner of SG Style Blog and Austin designer Claire Zinnecker are craving anything and everything from Target’s boho Opalhouse collection. We’re bugging out over this embellished cushion.

An Unconventional Plant Home

Robin Wilson is feeling the wire mesh and galvanized steel products in Target’s Hearth and Hand collection. (Chip and Jo know how to nail the modern rustic vibe.) Add this adorable plant stand to your porch or a large windowsill.

A Bedding Set That Sparkles

Heather Bullard is looking forward to changing out her sheets for white, washed linen and percale options better suited to the warmer weather. Target is great for more affordable—but still high-quality—bedding, and these starburst-pattern sheets are definitely a worthwhile summer swap.

A Quirky Pair of Bookends

Designer Stephanie Watkins of CasaWatkins has her eye on gold fixtures and brass accessories. Park this adorable duo on a lonely bookshelf for a detail that will make you smile every time you put away a novel.

A Catchall for Anything and Everything

You’ll get tons of use out of a  tray like this one from Opalhouse. Katrina Blair Sullivan recommends gathering a few special collectibles on it, placing it on your coffee table to corral your remotes, or using it for summer entertaining.
