    1. A Novogratz computer desk that's simple but will get the job done — and help you get your job done at the same time.

    A simple black desk with two open storage shelves and wire legs

    Promising review: "I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS DESK!!! It exceeded my expectations. I needed a work area in my studio apartment, and this desk added an upscale and classic flair to my space. It didn’t arrive damaged as other reviewers have said theirs did. The assembly took me less than 15 minutes. I am SO happy and recommend it to anyone. I LOVE IT. It's not too big or bulky. It's perfect." —Desaree

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $129.99 (available in black and white).

    2. A storage cabinet you could use as a pantry, linen closet, or just a place to store all the random stuff you don't have a place for.

    A tall and thin cabinet with two doors in grey in a laundry room

    Promising review: "I am using this storage cabinet as a pantry. It is a very good cabinet just as the other reviews have said. It's not too big and not too small. The adjustable shelves make it nice to fit your personal needs. It's strong enough and solid. It sure gave me more room in my kitchen cabinets to be able to move most of my food to this pantry. I recommend this product." —Carrie

    Get it from Amazon for $274.99 (available in three sizes and three colors).

    3. A four-panel folding screen to add some privacy or break up a room into two. This is especially great if you have a small space or studio and want to feel like you actually have more rooms without, you know, actually putting in a wall.

    The screen with brown checkered design and white inside in a room

    Promising review: "This is perfect for creating a privacy wall between my queen-sized bed and the front door of my very small studio apartment. It also makes the bed feel a bit cozier and almost has the feeling of creating another room, albeit large enough only for a bed. It's exactly long enough, while folded enough to stand up, to stretch from end to end at the foot of the bed." —JDH

    Get it from Amazon for $114.95.

    4. A bean bag chair you'll find soooooo comfortable during your next TV binge, you may not leave it all day (and that's not a bad thing).

    The big bean bag chair in red with a model sitting in it in a living room

    Promising review: "I cannot describe how much I love this bean bag chair! My husband and I live in a studio apartment and this is the only piece of furniture that we own that doesn't convert into another use. It's quite large in our small space but comfortable enough to be worth the space. I will say that it was difficult to fluff out the stuffing from the original packaging. You have to manually separate the pieces by pulling them apart from the incasing. After that, though, fluffing and reshaping the chair is easy. I try to re-mold ours every couple of days so it doesn't get too flat. I often fall asleep reading or relaxing on the chair, so it is comfortable enough to rest on for long periods. I wouldn't recommend using this to sleep on for any longer than a nap, but it's great as a chill place in your living area." —Danyale

    Get it from Amazon for $155 (available in 28 styles).

    5. A storage console that's not only great to hold your TV, but also has four cubbies so you can keep DVDs, blankets, and pillows close but organized.

    The storage console in black with four shelves filled with assorted things

    Promising review: "I've been looking a long time for just the right TV stand.... Found it. I got it in the driftwood color. It's beautiful. It's a sturdy piece, and was easy to put together. It's not real wood, but it's textured to feel like it, and no one will tell the difference. I put a 55-inch TV on it with plenty of room to spare. It's a great looking piece. I would recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade from those standard black TV stands we all had or for the larger flat-screen TVs 55 to 60 inches. This one is a 5-star for sure." —Cathy Healey

    Get it from Amazon for $129 (available in 11 styles).

    6. A large storage basket to really make the room ~pop~, and also give you a place to discretely store your dirty clothes.

    A large woven basket with a lid and handles on the side with patches of different rainbow colors all over
    Expedition Subsahara

    Expedition Subsahara is a Black- women-owned businesses founded to bring colorful African decor to Americans. The shop also works to provide an income for African women by and 20 percent of the profit goes into a fund to build a STEAM school for girls in Senegal, West Africa.

    Promising review: "I did not know I could experience the joy and happiness over a hamper, but that's what happened. Pure JOY! I love the colors, the size is perfect for my family of three, and I honestly just love how happy the basket is. You all should re-name it to the happy basket. I highly recommend it." —Sarah

    Get it from Expedition Subsahara for $125+ (available in large, XL, and XXL).

    7. A three-piece table set designed to fit in small spaces because even though your home is small, that doesn't mean you don't deserve to eat dinner at a table!

    A tall table in brown with a marble-like top and two stools on either side of it, also in brown

    Promising review: "I was nervous at first to buy this table and stools because I thought it was going to be a mini table and stools and just overall be too small. I use this table as a island for my kitchen (I have a studio so not much kitchen space), and I absolutely love it! I had no complaints about it when I got it. Nothing came broken and all pieces come with the table to set up. Just for a heads up, this table and stool set does include a little tool to help you put everything together! I love it. :)" —Elisha Danielle Thomas

    Get it from Amazon for $94.75.

    8. A Novogratz futon couch that folds flat to reveal a super comfortable bed you can totally sleep on.


    Promising review: "This is so much better than I expected! This was so easy to put together and looks absolutely beauuuuutiful! Got it in grey, and it absolutely goes perfectly with the bohemian modern theme of my living room for my small apartment." —Sunrise

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $439+ (available in four colors).

    9. A loft bed frame perfect for kids who need a bit more space in their rooms but don't want to feel like they're sleeping an inch from the ceiling.

    The silver twin-sized loft bed frame in a room with a beanbag chair underneath

    Promising review: "I purchased this for my son for his 14th birthday. I updated his bedroom and wanted to give him a bit more space. He doesn't like the feel of the full-sized loft beds as they put him too close to the low ceilings in our house. This was an excellent compromise. The space underneath makes a nice little hang out for him to read, play with his legos, play video games, and just relax. This bed went together very easily, there was almost nothing to it. He is the size of an adult now, and it has been sturdy and doesn't shake or creak when he gets in and out. I don't like the feel of the ladder on my feet, but it doesn't seem to bother him." —Shannon Shires

    Get it from Amazon for $120.03+ (available in four colors).

    10. A set of two folding chairs that actually don't look like folding chairs, so when the holidays roll around, your Aunt Kathy won't look down on you when you force her to use one for dinner.

    The chair in brown with a ladder-style back in a room

    Promising review: "I love these chairs! They're very easy to put away and very durable when they are folded out. Occasionally, I have even had to stand on them to move things around. I was nervous to do it at first, but have now issue now. The leather seat is very comfortable. I use one of the chairs at my home desk; sometimes sitting on it for more than four or five hours a day. No complaints at all." —Matthew Mahaffy

    Get it from Amazon for $84.57 (available in two styles).

    11. A desk chair so comfortable that the day may fly by as you breeze through all the work you have to get done.

    The chair with wheels, padded seat, back, and armrests in black

    Promising review: "Excellent home office chair, comfortable, sturdy, affordable, and high quality. I bought this chair back in June and assembled it in less than an hour. It's pretty easy to assemble and is very comfortable. I can play games for hours, relaxed sitting in this chair. I have not yet seen any issues with the armrests cracking or anything of that sort. I would definitely recommend this chair!" —G. Tan

    Get it from Amazon for $95.86+ (available in black and white).

    12. A velvet sectional with the perfect space to put your feet up and relax — you deserve it.

    Sabai Design / Via

    Sabai Design is a small woman-owned business that makes beautiful furniture using sustainable products and ethical manufacturing. The velvet fabric they use is made of 100% recycled water bottles. You can customize this sectional to make it fit your space. For example, the chaise extension on this sectional can be set up on either side.

    Promising review: "This is absolutely the sofa of my dreams! It is super comfortable, firm with a bounce, and the cushions are filled tightly, not deflated or loose. The color is very accurate to the description. The material is very soft and high-quality velvet. I had an easy time putting it together with the help of a friend, and it feels very sturdy. It shipped and arrived so fast — I was so impressed. The seller was super sweet, kept great communication, and accommodated any concerns I had. I am so pleased with my purchase and absolutely recommend it to others. It's well worth the price!" —Fei Lee

    Get it from Sabai Design for $1,395 (available in eight fabric options and two leg options).

    13. A coffee table designed with a raised lower shelf perfect for some additional storage that doesn't hurt the design.

    The coffee table with a glass top in gold in a living room

    Promising review: "This is an absolutely stunning piece for less than half the price of the similar-looking ones. I'm very happy! It was very easy to put together. Pro tip: slip the glass pieces in before giving the frame a final tighten." —Anonymous

    Get it from Wayfair for $164.99 (originally $229.99; available in gold and silver).

    14. A Novogratz turntable stand so you can finally have a way to organize your records and use them more than once a year.

    A brown wood stand with two large cubbies with metal dividers with record albums in them and two grey drawers above them and a record player on top

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this product. I was searching for something like this for so long, and this is exactly what I had hoped to find. I was slightly wary of ordering something like this online, but I couldn’t be happier. The piece is very good quality for the price and style, too. The directions said it would take an hour to assemble with two people, but I did it alone and it took two hours. I recommend finding a power drill and someone to help at least holding stuff in place while putting in screws. That part was tricky with only two hands. However, viewing it all set up was very satisfying and well worth the effort." —Bridget C. Shaw

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon $199.99 (available in four styles and four colors).

    15. A kitchen cart designed to give you some extra storage space *and* a place to prep your food, because we're not all lucky enough to have a kitchen big enough to have an actual island in it. One day... *sigh*

    The silver metal three-tier kitchen cart with a wood cutting board on top and assorted kitchen products on it

    Promising review: "I love this kitchen cart. I live in an apartment and have limited counter space, but then I bought an InstaPot and had no place to put it. What was great about this cart is that you can adjust the shelves to suit your needs. So I measured the height of the InstaPot and adjusted the shelves so it could get off my counter and fit on the bottom shelf of this cart. It was very easy to put together and another great thing is that the top is a real butcher block. Others I looked at were just a laminate. It also has wheels with two locking wheels so I can move it when I need to open my cupboard doors." —Susan Nehez

    Get it from Amazon for $71.71 (available in four styles).

    16. A chair-side table with a shelf you can totally use to display all those coffee table books you've somehow accumulated over the years, have never read, but are so beautiful that you can't get bear to get rid of them. You know the ones I'm talking about.

    The table in brown with a lower shelf with a stack of books on it

    Promising review: "I needed a small table for my upstairs hallway. This one was perfect. It came quickly and was very well packaged. I live alone, and I cannot lift heavy objects, and this needed to go upstairs. It took me about 15 minutes to assemble—everything is supplied except a Phillips screwdriver. I plan on purchasing the matching coffee table. I'm very happy with the product." —Ally

    Get it from Amazon for $50+ (available in three styles).

    17. A console table that's perfect for your entryway to help you make use of the space and also has a place to set your keys when you enter.

    The wood console in black in a room with books and a plant on top

    Promising review: "It's an easy piece of furniture to assemble and provides a nice stylish update without too much flash. I'm using this in my entryway/hallway area and it was just what the space needed to look finished. I have a few books on there and a key tray/valet, but nothing too heavy. I don't think I'd feel safe putting anything on there more than 10+ pounds. It just doesn't seem sturdy enough for that. The simple legs may be the reason why this isn't that strong to hold heavy items, but at the same time, it also provides a lot of space to put stuff underneath the table, which is what I did. I have some stools that fit perfectly right under the table, so this really served my purposes well. Overall, I'm happy with the product." —JC

    Get it from Amazon for $77 (available in six colors).

    18. A Novogratz metal bed frame to upgrade your bed system and make you feel like you're actually an adult (no matter how old you are).

    A metal bed frame in dark grey with round finial posts on the headboard and foot board in a bedroom

    Promising review: "This bed frame is absolutely stunning. I put it together by myself in around 40 minutes, while having two kids running around and poking at things. It was very easy to put together, and you can't beat the price. It's very sturdy and offers good support. Before this bed frame, my husband and I had a wood platform bed ($300 and it was basically just plywood) that bit the dust. So we were sleeping on two mattresses stacked, this is the first time in months I've slept and woke without back pain. We have a thicker mattress so it's on it's lower setting. We love it! So easy to put together and so stylish. You will not regret this purchase!" —Olivia

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $169.49 (available in full, queen, king and in five colors).

    19. A cocoon chair with a cushion perfect for curling up with a blanket in to finish that book you've been reading.

    The cocoon chair made out of wood with a curved back design and a cushion and pillow inside
    World Market

    Promising review: "There is a reason this chair has such great is perfect. It was easy to set up. It only has six bolts, and they give you the wrench. The pillow is comfortable and so is the chair, and it looks amazing!! What a steal on sale and even full price it's still a bargain." —OR

    Get it from World Market for $229.99.

    20. A toy organizer designed to make it super easy for your kids to put away their own toys (*hopefully*).

    The organizer with four shelves and different sized colored bins on each shelf with toys in them

    Promising review: "I bought this as a much-needed form of organization for my daughter’s toys. I wanted something that was inexpensive and would help keep the toys organized. I shopped around and went to a couple of furniture stores looking for something, but just couldn’t find the right thing. For the price, this is an awesome little piece of furniture. It looks great in my daughter’s room and was super easy to put together. I think it took me 20 minutes max to put it together and get it all set up. I did need to use a screwdriver!" —Karin

    Get it from Amazon for $43.66 (available in three styles).

    21. A textured pouf you can use as a footrest in front of a chair or couch (or if you're like me and don't have room for a coffee table, as a good alternative to one).

    A square pouf in beige with stripes of green, blue, and teal and a variety of tassels, tufting and beads

    Promising review: "This is one of the coolest pieces of furniture I own! It's super lightweight and easy to move. And it's the perfect height for resting my feet while sitting on the couch. Plus, it works well as extra seating." —srah

    Get it from Target for $49.99 (available in three styles).

    22. A corner shelf designed to help you take full advantage of all the space you have in your home. You can put trinkets, pictures, or anything else on the shelves.

    The shelf with five brown shelves and black tubes connecting them in the corner of the room with trinkets on it

    Promising review: "I'm so impressed with this shelf that I ordered a few more for other areas/rooms. They are simple and pretty, really brighten up a room. They're great space savers and stable enough to hold small decor/candles or some lightweight books. I wouldn't put anything too heavy on them and chance it. Screwing in the tubes is a big work-out for the arms, but the end result is well worth it. For the price, you cannot beat any of the shelving units in this line. They all look very classy while also being very simplistic. The quality is also impressive!" —Brennas-Mommy

    Get it from Amazon $74.90 (available in 3-, 4- and 5-tier and in 16 styles).

    23. A bar cart perfect for displaying your collection of alcohol and wine bottles and glasses so they're not taking up your precious cabinet space.

    A gold bar cart with three shelves and places to store four wine bottles and hang wine glasses

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this bar cart! It's so pretty and has lots of room for all my barware, plus space for some pretty decorative items! Put it together in a snap, too!" —Keith

    Get it from Wayfair for $232.99 (originally $339).

    24. A folding storage bench with a removable lid so you can fill it with extra blankets and pillows so they're not piled up on the floor all the time.

    The storage bench in black with the tufted lid on the side of it to show that it is filled with toys and pillows

    Promising review: "This was my favorite purchase of the year. I needed extra storage space for sheets since my linen closet is quite small and only fits my towels. I spotted this gem on Amazon and absolutely love it. It looks like a real leather bench, very sturdy. There is an insert you put inside, which you don't have to use, but I did. It separates my winter and summer sheets. I have eight sets of queen sheets in this beauty and now my storage problem is over. I'm going to order another one for the guest room. Amazon, you rock !" —Mare

    Get it from Amazon for $53.99+ (available in five colors).

    25. A laptop table that's simple yet effective. Plus, it's foldable, so you can easily hide it away in a closet when you're not using it.

    The desk with brown top, black wire legs with a laptop and assorted things on it

    Promising review: "I love this desk! It is just the right size, sturdy, and extremely easy to assemble. The assembly pretty much consisted of taking it out of its box, opening up the frame/legs of the table (the are already screwed together and ready to go), and snapping the table top into the frame. Done! It is lightweight, portable, and looks perfect as an office "corner" in my bedroom." —Richard Lawson

    Get it from Amazon for $94.88 (available in five styles).

    26. A platform bed to upgrade your sleeping situation because nobody, and I mean nobody, should just sleep on a mattress on the floor.

    The platform bed with a tufted headboard in dark grey with a mattress on top

    Promising review: "This bed is ingeniously designed, well-constructed, and looks very chic and beautiful. It went together like a breeze. One person can do it. The fabric is very good quality and the workmanship is high-quality. None of the materials has a chemical smell like so many goods do these days. This bed is totally worth the money. It is the level of quality we should all expect from economy-priced goods. I almost never write reviews, but this bed so impressed me with the quality and ingenious design that I had to share the information. I will look to this company first when I need furniture in the future." —Durbie's girl

    Get it from Amazon for $160+ (available full, queen, and king and in dark and light gray).

    27. A simple side table you can also use as a nightstand, and at this low of a price, you might as well buy a couple and use them all around your house.

    The side table with two shelves and a fabric bin in one shelf

    Promising review: "My wife was complaining about how she needed a nightstand by our bed. I searched and found this small but yet wonderful piece of furniture. It's the perfect size for the side of the bed, most nightstands are bulky and hard to get into tight spaces. I love the cloth style drawer. She uses it mainly for books and to hide candy in the drawer. It's the perfect height. The last one we had was higher than the bed and she kept hitting her head on it. We have had it for a year now, and it's still in perfect condition." —Jeremy Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $22.87+ (available in 10 colors).

    28. A bookcase to store your every-growing collection of book and also plants and whatever else you want on display.

    A four-shelf bookcase with wood shelves and iron base with books and other trinkets on it

    Promising review: "I'm so happy with my purchase. The bookcase looks so good. It was very easy to assemble. It only took us 30 minutes. I would definitely recommend it. We got the bookcase in the darkest shade." —Jovie

    Get it from Wayfair for $179.99 (originally $249; available in three styles).

    29. An entryway bench with storage for your shoes and coats so they don't end up in a pile you trip over every time you go through the door.

    The bench with a wood seat and two metal shelves for shoes and two sets of hooks for jackets and accessories

    Promising review: "This is great! It holds many things and looks nice doing so. It feels sturdy and stable. I did not anchor it to the wall. I have had it a few months now, and it was money well spent." —Anonymous

    Get it from Wayfair for $81.99.

    30. A velvet arm chair to add a luxe touch to your room and leave any guests in shock that you didn't get it from a super fancy boutique.

    The velvet armchair in pink with a gold metal base

    Promising review: "This is a gorgeous chair! It looks soooo luxe! Everyone compliments us on it and is shocked that it’s from Target. It is also sooo comfortable!!! If I had space for two, I would buy another one!" —britterfritter

    Get it from Target for $299.99 (available in pink, green, and blue).

    31. A vanity that'll change the way you get ready and make you feel like a movie star in the process. Who wants to stand and get ready when you can sit and look at yourself in these big mirrors!?!

    The vanity with five drawers in the front and a three-part mirror in white with a small stool with a padded fabric top

    Promising review: "Let me just start off by saying, I NEVER write reviews for anything, but everything about the vanity was perfect. I had low expectations and was a bit skeptical before buying it because you can't really trust everything you buy online. So when I received this, I was beyond happy. First of all, the shipment arrived 5 days earlier than expected, which was a pleasant surprise. Setting the vanity up was easy (just make sure you read the instructions haha), and it's the perfect size. It's not too small and not huge either. It's also a fairly decent price for such a fantastic and beautiful vanity. Not a single scratch, and it's just so beautiful. I'd highly recommend this for anyone who's looking for a small adorable functional vanity for a fair price. Truly worth every penny spent. I'm buying LED lights, and I'm attaching them onto the mirror, and I can't wait to continue dolling up at my vanity." —Leena A.

    Get it from Amazon for $231.82 (available in four colors).

    32. A toddler bed for when it's time for your little one to graduate from the crib to a "big kid bed."

    The bed in brown with a head and footboard and rails on either side

    Promising review: "This toddler bed has been a lifesaver! It's the perfect size for our almost 2-year-old who has refused to get out of our bed for months. She never slept in her crib when she was younger but now that we have 'baby bed' she climbs right in and loves it. It is sturdy enough that mama can sometimes get in and cuddle (I'm about 160 lbs). It's also compact enough that it fits in the corner of our bedroom so that she can still climb into our bed if she needs us in the middle of the night. This is one of my favorite purchases!" —Myst

    Get it from Amazon for $77.43 (available in 11 colors).

    33. A coffee table people will probably think you paid quite a pretty penny on. Your secret is safe with me!

    The coffee table with a light brown wood top and silver legs

    Promising review: "Love love love. This table came packaged great. No damage or issues. So easy to put together. Honestly took about five minutes. Shocked how good it looks, because of the price. I honestly love it more than tables I looked at for hundreds of dollars. Dust and dog hair does not show on this at all. I've had it for a while and it's just perfect for us." —CMiles1985

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99+ (available in five styles).

    34. A snack table so you can watch your favorite shows *and* eat dinner at the same time.

    The table with a glass top and silver legs

    Promising review: "I'm using this right now as I write this review. This is the perfect size for my sofa, and I use it every morning and evening to hold my coffee, some paperwork, whatever I happen to be doing. It is extremely well-made and I bought this because it has the double supports. The modern design lends itself well to most decors but I particularly like the tempered glass top which means you can spill things and never have to worry." —Amazone

    Get it from Amazon for $42.87.
