We know to turn to Urban Outfitters when we’re in need of a good headboard, decorative vessel, or, hey, even a can of paint. But there’s one section of the retailer we’ve been unrightfully neglecting. The store’s Urban Renewal selection, composed of vintage and upcycled products, is well-known to be a treasure trove of secondhand clothes, but it also includes great decor.

Available to shop online, Urban Renewal features a small collection of one-of-a-kind pieces. So you can buy a limited-run overdyed rug or a throw pillow with a cover made out of deadstock fabric. There are even some furniture options from Los Angeles–based brand Amsterdam Vendor. That’s right: You can get the mid-century accent chair you’ve been searching for right on Urban Outfitters.

Of course, this also comes with some risk. When it comes to upcycled options like textiles, the item you get might not look exactly like the item in the picture. For instance, UO warns that the Baoule cloth body pillow might feature a totally different pattern than what’s pictured, so you’ll have to be willing to play vintage roulette. Who knows, you might just end up scoring your new favorite accent piece. Scope out our favorites below and keep your tab open—Urban Renewal drops new pieces every week. The game is afoot.
