Shopping on Amazon can sometimes feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. With so many products to choose from, it can be difficult to separate good design from the bad.

The e-commerce giant recently expanded its Interesting Finds feature, which offers a Pinterest-inspired online shopping experience. The curated feed is updated daily, and ‘hearting’ photos allows the algorithm to adjust to your decor taste.

Items are sorted into numerous categories, such as ‘mid-century,’ ‘bar,’ ‘smart home,’ and ‘workspace.’ Everything on the page is eligible for Amazon Prime shipping, which means your new design find will arrive at your doorstep in two days.

Interesting Finds, in its current format, has only been around since July 2016. A site called Canopy, which features strictly Amazon products, but is curated by humans, has been filtering through Amazon’s extensive offerings for nearly four years. The tastemakers at Canopy hand-pick “beautiful and functional products” that are currently in-stock and ready to ship. Plus, they take their own hi-def photos, so shoppers needn’t be squinting at a pixelized thumbnail.

Tydepool is a similar site that curates products from both Amazon and Etsy (another messy marketplace to sift through). The Tumblr page is known for featuring affordable, yet chic items, including furniture, housewares and clothes. Sadly, the site hasn’t been updated since 2015 (it was a one-woman venture), but some of the merch is still available.
