If you’ve just moved to the area or this is your first apartment, you’re likely in need of some furniture, décor, and living essentials for your new place.

To help the transition to your new home go smoothly, we’ve put together a list of our favorite places to find furniture, décor, and other home goods.

Where to Shop for Your Apartment


625 3rd Avenue Extension

Just 5 minutes from Stonegate is Target. Know for their on-trend and affordable furniture and home goods, this is a great place to start if you’re in need of a lot of items. You’ll find everything from towels and shower curtains to furniture like dining chairs and tables. Shop their kitchen department for affordable utensils, pots and pans, small appliances, and more!


102 Van Rensselaer Avenue

Similar to Target, HomeGoods stocks a variety of furniture, bedding, kitchenware, bath items, and décor. As an off-price retailer, you’ll find name brand items at discount prices, meaning you can furnish your apartment for less! We love heading to HomeGoods to find those finishing touches, like pillows, candles, and artwork.

Habitat ReStore in the Capital District

You may have to do some digging, but the Habitat for Humanity store can feature some high-quality furniture at great prices. With a little paint and elbow grease, a lot of the furniture can be transformed into something that fits your style perfectly. Habitat for Humanity has been known to have a great selection of desks, dressers, kitchen tables and chairs, and TV stands.

Pottery Barn

If you want to purchase an investment piece or two, head to Pottery Barn. The upscale furniture store sells bed & bath items, tableware, lighting, home goods, and furniture. The pieces always feature the latest trends and styles and will make your home feel truly luxurious. You can also purchase custom designed items such as an armchair or couch for furniture that is exactly what you’re looking for.
