    1. An entryway table to say to your guests, "Oh hi, yes hello, I do in fact have my life together" even if that's not the whole truth. At least your home will look that way.


    Promising review: "I bought this table as an entryway table near my front door. It doesn't stick out too far and is very sturdy. I love it so much and get compliments on it all the time. A few friends have even bought this after seeing it in my house." —Alison

    Get it from Amazon for $61.99+ (available in light and dark brown).

    2. A set of nesting coffee tables because why have only one table, when you can have two that work so nicely together?

    Promising review: "This is a great product, especially for the price. It really brightens up my space next to my dark grey chair. I have a dining table that matches as well, so it pulls the whole space together nicely! It took 10 minutes to assemble. It was easy to figure out without directions." —Brooke Roman

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    3. A three-tier entryway rack to hang coats, hats, and even umbrellas after you get stuck in a downpour you were not prepared for.


    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this item. It was easy to put together, and it really is very functional. I love that you can use it a lot of different ways. It is so handy to have near the front door. I'm the type of person that kicks off my shoes immediately, and all my hats and visors can hang from here. It's also great for hanging jackets up right away, without having to open a closet!!!! I even drape stuff over the entire top of the item, so that things are right where I need them. I actually bought a second one, because it really is a great item." —Regina Holt

    Get it from Amazon for $48.89+ (available in gold and black).

    4. An end table with a storage basket to artfully contain your blankets so they don't end up in a pile in the corner.


    Promising review: "I couldn't be happier with this table! The setup was a breeze. It was simple enough to do while watching an episode of Scandal. I believe it took me 15-20 minutes. I'm using it as a nightstand, and it's sturdy enough to support my 35" TV. You really can't beat the quality at this price!" —petitepineapple808

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99.

    5. An hourglass accent stool with a removable lid you can use for secret storage.


    Promising review: "I bought these for extra seating and also as side tables or remote control storage. They are cool-looking and a nice edgy surprise to traditional apartment look." —Emerimerie

    Get it from Amazon for $29.54+ (available in four colors).

    6. A four-tier corner shelf to help you take advantage of all the space in your home because no matter if you live in a shoebox or a mansion, you can always use more creative ways to store your stuff.


    Promising review: "This is such a great stand! I was skeptical for the good price, but man this is well made and looks great. I do recommend having a second person to help make it easier to put together. If you need extra storage, I say go for it!" —Ryan

    Get it from Amazon for $55.99+ (available in dark brown and light brown).

    7. A small end table people might think you picked up from a flea market because that's how savvy of a shopper you are.


    Promising review: "I am in love with these nightstands! Great for the money and easy to put together. I had a toddler trying to 'help' and still managed to put everything together without any issues. Keep in mind, these are NOT tall stands. I needed short ones because of my low bed height and these worked perfectly." —Jacqueline Cherepinsky

    Get it from Amazon for $51.99.

    8. A modern-looking coffee table with storage shelves so you can show off those coffee table books you bought and have opened approximately once.


    Promising review: "I purchased this table in the natural wood color and it's stunning. Assembly is very quick, it took me 10-15 minutes. It's attractive, sturdy, and affordable. I highly recommend!" —Michael Bucio

    Get it from Amazon for $74.99.

    9. A tv stand with built-in storage so you have a place to put coffee table books, extra blankets, or whatever other devices you have to connect to your TV instead of a cable subscription.


    Promising review: "I'd definitely recommend this TV stand! The wood is a little bit darker in person than in the advertisement, but it looks very nice with the rest of our living room. It's pretty sturdy and wasn't too hard to assemble. For the price, it's definitely a great product! " —spygirl746

    Get it from Walmart for $49 (available in brown and black).

    10. An l-shaped desk you'll put to good use in your office for a very ~L-ong~ time.


    Promising review: "I am very happy with my purchase. Keep in mind the price. It is light and very easy to put together. My husband and I read the instructions first, organized the pieces, and put it together within 40 minutes. It is exactly what I was looking for. It’s not an expensive piece of furniture, but it looks great in my home office." —Claudia Higuero

    Get it from Amazon for $78.97+ (available in brown and black).

    11. An accent chair because it's just a fact that fancy people own accent chairs, so you should too.


    Promising review: "I needed something to fill space in a corner in my living room. This chair is perfect! I added a pillow and grey throw. It's very sturdy and easy to assemble." —Lauren Hornung

    Get it from Amazon for $92.14.

    12. A five-tier bathroom shelving unit because we're not all blessed with optimal storage in every room and sometimes you just need a place to put extra towels instead of just shoving them in a closet with basically everything else you own.


    Promising review: "I was looking for the perfect space-saving sized bath towel and bathroom accessory tower rack—needless to say, this was indeed the perfect find for what I wanted! Sturdy (after constructed correctly—i.e. following the assembly instructions exactly through step by step—as others have said on here), nice black finish, and highly functional. I would buy another one if ever needed." —BigGuyPA

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99.

    13. A faux fur stool for a soft spot to have guests sit when people come over and you realize you have, like, no seating at all.


    Get it from Amazon for $68.72.

    14. A three-tier bookshelf with an industrial feel so you have a place to store all the books you've bought and sworn to yourself that you'll day.


    Promising review: "AMAZING PRICE! I like this narrow bookshelf as it is quite easy to assemble and really sturdy. It only took me about 15 minutes to put together. The industrial style suites my home very well, and it holds a lot of stuff in a small amount of space. I highly recommended!"—A.W.

    Get it from Amazon for $82.99+ (available in three- and four- tiers).

    15. A concord turntable stand because if you've made the investment to have a record player in your home, you should probably have a place to keep it and store the records so you can access them easier.


    Promising review: "This piece is gorgeous and looks great in my home. It has literally revolutionized my house—I play records all the time now! So thankful for this purchase. I love it!!" —Doni Cruz

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $77.61.

    16. A velvet ottoman – everyone who sees it will be ~blushing~ to ask you where you got it so they can get one for themselves. And yeah, they'll def be even more shocked when you tell them how much you paid.


    Promising review: "This is an absolutely gorgeous and versatile piece. The color is very, very close to the photo. Mine are just slightly more blush and that could be because they’re in a brighter room. I get so many compliments on these ottomans!" —Jenna M. Jones

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in six colors).

    17. A end table with three drawers that's also water-proof so you don't have to worry if you accidentally spill some water on it.


    Promising review: "I literally cannot stop looking at this cutie! It is super decent and the size is exactly perfect for my room! It definitely looks much more expensive than the price, but assembling it was kind of painful for me. I spent 2 hours on putting everything together. It should be easier if you are a builder or enjoys problem solving with actual things. Overall, I am very satisfied with this baby." —Zebra the bushes

    Get it from Amazon for $84.99.

    18. A set of two cube ottomans that work great as foot rests if you don't have room in your living room for a coffee table.

    Promising review: "These are so perfect I can't even begin to tell you. My living room needed more seating, and these ottomans work perfectly with my coffee table. I also have Rheumatoid Arthritis, and these are just the level of my sofa so I can put my feet up. Love, love, LOVE these!!" —Nancy Thompson

    Get them from Amazon for $62.64+ (available in four colors).

    19. A lift top coffee table with a hidden storage compartment so you can hide away all the random magazines and catalogs you've been sent in the mail that you haven't gotten around to throwing away yet.


    Promising review: "This is a fantastic coffee table for people with small apartments and need a place to eat without having room for a kitchen table. The coffee table looks nice, is decently sturdy, and folds up into a large TV tray. It's also perfect for binge eating donuts and fried chicken on a Saturday morning while recovering from your hangover." —PV

    Get it from Amazon for $88.99+ (available in white and brown).

    20. A tripod floor lamp with a unique design because you're different and deserve a lamp that shows that off.


    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this lamp! It was easy to assemble (in under 20 minutes) and looks quality (considering the low price point). Plus, it comes with the lightbulb. It gives off a nice little warm light in my bedroom. I would recommend!" —Kim

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in dark and light brown).

    21. A mid-century modern chair that'll be a ~rock~ solid addition to any nursery.


    Promising review: "This chair is fantastic at this low price.. I needed a small chair for the nursery, and this has been great to rock the baby while nursing. It is a smaller chair, so may look weird around huge furniture, but I think it looks great next to a regular dresser. I’m 5’4" and find the seat height super comfortable. My husband at 6’2" feels it is not as comfortable for him. The chair is super easy to put together and feels sturdy. I’m rocking on the wood floor and have no problems with it sliding. The seat is plastic, but it is good looking for the price!" —Cambridge

    Get it from Amazon for $76.48+ (available in five colors).

    22. A bookshelf so different and unusual that it basically also works as a piece of art—and for this price, we love something that can do both.


    Promising review: "This book case is so easy to assemble, and it's sturdy. It is very well made and fits just about anywhere there is wall space. We really like the unique design, and it holds quite a few books. I highly recommend this book shelf. Even if your home is more conventional rather than modernistic, this book shelf fits into the decor." —Shanara Schmidt

    Get it from Amazon for $55.99.

    23. A coffee table you ~clearly~ need to make a statement with in your living room.


    Promising review: "This table is exactly what I wanted! Yes, it is small, so measure it out before you order to make sure it's the right size for your room. It's perfect in my tiny living room, looks very smart! It's very easy to put together. The glass top is a bit heavy, but that makes it sturdy. It has excellent instructions that are very clear, and it's a clever design. It looks exactly like the picture." —Jan

    Get it from Amazon for $67.63 (available in wave top and wave bottom).

    24. A floor lamp with a mid-century modern vibe that will actually add a ton of light to the room.

    I got this lamp when I moved into my apartment because I liked the style of it, but I ended up loving how much light it added to my living room (I only have one window that doesn't get much light through it). It was super easy to install and has a button to turn it on and off on the ground (so you can just step on it). It has such a chic look to it that people can't believe where it's from.

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99 (available in brass and rose gold).

    25. A leaning ladder rack that may look like just another thing to have in the room, but really, it's a great place to store extra blankets or clothes that aren't clean enough to put away but not dirty enough to wash. You know what I'm talking about.


    Promising review: "I love this ladder! It's a modern design with the fun top wood rung. It holds my blankets beautifully, isn’t wobbly, and doesn’t mark up the walls. It seems sturdy and really spruced up the space." —Cellens

    Get it from Amazon for $50 (available in white and black).

    26. A foldable bookshelf with no assembly required—which is perfect if you're like basically everyone else in this world (except my mother) who can't stand putting furniture together. Plus, if you ever had to move, just fold this baby up, and you're GTG.


    Promising review: "I'M SO IMPRESSED! It looks amazing, holds all my books, seems really sturdy, and was ridiculously easy to 'assemble.' You can not beat this for the price." —Amazonian Patron

    Get it from Amazon for $89.88.

    27. A storage ottoman perfect for when people come over out of the ~blue~ because you can easily stash everything you have lying around your living room inside it in a matter of minutes.


    Promising review: "I bought two of these for my two sofas. We love them so much. We love the color, the storage, the look with a rich color, the price (I searched everywhere for a good price), and how comfortable they are to prop up your tired feet and legs. When our grandchildren come over, we scoot the two ottomans together to make a nice bed with a pillow and a blanket. This gives them a comfy area and the adults sofas to relax with more room! I love the storage! We have 2 standard bed pillows and 4 blankets, the grandchildren’s house shoes and iPads in one ottoman. Love, love, love them so much!" —AJ

    Get it from Amazon for $93.71.

    28. A three-tier rolling bar cart that'll add a bit of fanciness to your home, even if you only put the cheapest alcohol on it.


    Promising review: "This gold rolling bar cart is super nice and affordable! It looks very high quality and for the price, you can’t beat it! It is very sturdy! And bonus, it was a breeze to put together! I highly recommend!"—krystle stolleis

    Get it from Amazon for $47.50.

    29. A rolling bakers rack to upgrade the storage situation in your kitchen and give you a chic place to store plates, utensils, or even that Instant Pot you should probably use more.


    Promising review: "I love this table! It’s perfect for a spot in kitchen with no counter space. We use it when we're cooking on the stove. I bought it because the reviews said it was easy to assemble, and it was! I also like that it can roll if you need to move it, plus it has brakes. I also like how it looks. I wish it came in more colors/finishes though." —Joyce H

    Get it from Amazon for $62.99.
