It’s true that what’s old is inevitably new again, and nowhere is this clearer than in Urban Outfitters’s latest launch. The retailer just announced its fall collection, featuring hundreds of stylish furniture finds. One standout category? The chrome-look-alike pieces, which make the perfect addition to any contemporary space. With tubular metal frames and sleek silhouettes, our favorite items look like they’re inspired by Le Corbusier, a Swiss architect and designer whose structured furniture from the late 1920s feels as fresh as ever today. UO’s take is a more budget-friendly option, available in subdued creams and earthy terracottas—these are our top picks.

The Sofa

Give your living room the focal point it deserves with this rust-hued couch—the exposed frame lends an edge to the cushy piece. 

The Coffee Table

This two-tier item gives you plenty of space to display all your favorite ceramics and tchotchkes. Plus it’s made to order, so you get the feeling of custom furniture at a fraction of the price. 

The Chair

If you want to zhuzh up your dining room, a set of these sleek stools will do the trick. Pair the polished design with a simple table to keep the focus on the tubular frame. 

The Lamp 

Mix up the usual suspects on your console by integrating a domed light fixture—it’ll be a modernist foil to stacked books and bouquets of flowers. 

The Side Table 

This hourglass-shaped fixture will hold all your wind-down essentials, from the candle you love to burn every night to the analog alarm clock you swear you’re going to switch to. It’s a versatile surface for any room in the house—pop it in your entry as a chic catchall for keys and mail.
