The start of a new season can spark your desire to refresh your home, or perhaps even try out a new look altogether! When you’re looking for something convenient and local, it’s exciting to explore places that offer unique and different options at a variety of price points.
Whether you’re just looking for inspiration or have an idea of what you need, here are the places to explore for anything from a new pillow to a fun chair.
If your house is home to young children, the quality of your furniture is definitely tested at one point or another. Furniture from the 1960s and 1970s often feature a higher standard of materials and construction, which ultimately means it can withstand a busy toddler. The other perk of vintage furniture is that it often incorporates clean lines, smaller scale, and real wood.
Mad Modern is a local gem that curates spectacular mid-century modern furniture alongside decor pieces such as lamps and artwork. Check out Mad Modern’s Facebook page for weekly updates and pictures of recent acquisitions. You’ll want to move quickly on purchasing a special piece because items sell quickly.

This national franchise delivers consistent success when it comes to finding the right accent piece, holiday wreath or patterned pillow. Inventory changes weekly, so you’ll enjoy discovering different pieces upon each visit. Not sure an item will fit into your car? No problem! Employees at Homegoods will hold on to your item until you’re able to grab a bigger vehicle. Corridor residents can enjoy Homegoods in both Cedar Rapids & Coralville, each offering different rotating inventory.
Be certain to check out the clearance section for hidden gems like coffee table books and cool ceramic figures. This is also a great place to find nursery decor, faux greenery, and interesting lamps that would cost a small fortune at an upscale boutique.

Not finding the exact piece that you’ve pinned on Pinterest? Jeff Jones is the perfect place to visit. With catalogs upon catalogs of furniture pieces, Jeff Jones is able to special order pieces from various suppliers.

If you’re looking for even better bargains, search the inventory of Jeff Jones’ consignment collection. With the switch of a knob or perhaps a new stain, used furniture can look even better than new!
