If H&M Home is an affordable decor destination that’s been chilling under the radar for you, get ready to see those flying money emojis multiply. The cult-favorite clothing behemoth’s lifestyle offshoot is a well-known source among Domino editors when it comes to securing expensive-looking designs that belie their IKEA-low prices. The envy-inducing furniture, boldly colored linens, highly rated tabletop gems, and whimsical kids’ products are just scratching the surface of the 2,000-plus stockist’s shopping allure. Another plus? According to the company, it aims to work only with recycled, organic, and other sustainably sourced materials by 2030. If you’re curious about what the best things to buy at H&M Home are, just take a cue from our editors’ most-eyed items, below. The roster features fresh picks from the brand, including a strong showing of compliment-grabbing bedding, a kids’ section full of sleeper scores, and some very good vases.
We collectively breathed a sign of relief when H&M Home’s highly anticipated furniture and lighting finally dropped in the U.S. Lilac-hued lamps, rattan and wood folding chairs, and the sweetest little wall shelf are just a few highlights, but don’t sleep on the kids’ collection.
Chic, affordable vases are hard to find—unless you’ve got the inside scoop on H&M Home’s trove of offerings. The retailer is brimming with an impressive mix of vessels in all sizes and sleek silhouettes.
Solids, stripes, pastels, trim—there’s really something for everyone in the bedding category at H&M Home. While cotton makes up most of the sheet selection, you can take your pick of linen, muslin, flannel, and satin, too. We’re fans of its quilts, which come at a fraction of the price of other investment brands.
The jute selection is tight at H&M Home, but the shapes and textures available more than make up for it. We adore this red-bordered option and the simplicity of this fringed runner. Nubby wool, classic patterns, and cute kid-size rugs also pop up in the new arrivals.
We are particularly enthusiastic about H&M Home’s glassware, but its porcelain mugs and metal accessories are worthy of praise, too. This section is also stocked with affordable linen napkins and tablecloths as well as extremely reasonable serving vessels.
Soothing neutrals with a few pops of color is the story in the bath section at H&M Home. We’re partial to the woven accents, as well as the refined towels that punch above their weight.
If you asked our shopping director, Liz Buxton, what the best things to buy at H&M Home are, she would tell you, “Throw pillows and seat cushions, hard stop.” The expensive-looking designs—made of stonewashed linen, tufted cotton, and vibrant velvet—are the most affordable you’re likely to find.
Bins, baskets, containers with lids—all good things. H&M Home’s storage and organization accessories run the gamut in color and material, with transitional space appeal. Take, for instance, this woven basket and lid (below); it could also be a mail bin or onion holder. Laundry baskets need not be for T-shirts destined for the wash—why not stash towels or toys in one? Let your mind run wild.
Candles can run steep sometimes, but not at H&M Home. Taper holders we love are $5 at the moment, and candlesticks come in all shapes and sizes without running up the tab. That goes for trays as well—whether you’re seeking something that’s glossy green or matte marble. The elegant glaze on this planter pot, too, is sure to elicit surprise from guests who’d never guess its sub-$50 price tag.
Children’s decor brands are all over the place when it comes to price and quality, not to mention style. But we can count on H&M Home for a seemingly endless trove of adorable and durable kids’ room furnishings. We particularly like the brand’s bedding, which offers some of the best bang for your buck. There’s always a cheerful mix of playful patterns and colors to be found. Not to mention, hello, this adorable cushion and table lamp.
