It seems almost too good to be true: home decor with the look of Crate & Barrel and the prices of IKEA. Sounds like a match made in design heaven, right?

Well, consider this brand heaven on earth. I recently discovered a brand with a treasure trove of gorgeous home items all at a great price. If you're looking for a furniture refresh, Nathan James is the brand you’ve been waiting for.

Their pieces are a bit modern, a bit midcentury, and a lot stunning. I'm positive that they'll outfit every room in your home, from storage and seating, to sofas and tables, to outdoor furniture and lighting.

Each style includes high-end materials and craftsmanship—without high-end price tags, might I add.

“We design home furnishing and lighting to provide chic pieces without the luxury markup,” Brooklyn Burdon, Chief Design Officer at Nathan James, tells us. “We’ve prioritized keeping the pricing budget-friendly so customers can transform their Pinterest inspirations into reality without breaking the bank."
