Shopping for new furniture for a home, apartment, or office? An increasing number of people are turning to online retailers for furnishings due to their varied selections and low prices. Though Amazon isn't necessarily known for its furniture, the site has a wealth of options that look far more stylish than their price tags would suggest.

Whether you're looking for chairs with a mid-century vibe, shelves that will fit in a tiny apartment, or multi-functional patio seating, cancel your usual IKEA visit and check out some of the great (and cheap!) furniture that Amazon will ship directly to your home.
