    1. An oversized cushion accent chair actually comfy enough for you to want to sit in it for hours on end, because it has plywood-reinforced sides and back for added support.

    Oversized cushion and back chair in grey with low-slung arms and stainless steel base

    Promising review: "I have been drooling over the chair for about two years until I could not take it anymore, and I could not keep living without it it is a most comfortable chair on Earth. No one is allowed to sit on my throne. This chair is much much more beautiful in person. I literally built my living room around it. I have got to say it was positively worth it!!!!" —dia daze

    Get it from Amazon for $478.89+ (available in grey, yellow, and blue).

    2. A resin and iron vintage-inspired floor-length mirror you've probably been ~eyeing~ for years now, but this is the sign from the universe that this beauty deserves its chance to shine in your home.

    Wide floor-length mirror with a rounded top and gold frame with jeweled adornments on the top middle and bottom side edges.

    Promising review: "I’ve had my eye on this mirror for so long and finally decided to purchase it. I got the 7-foot one. It is worth the purchase. The mirror is beautiful and detailed. It opens up my living room area. I definitely recommend it if you’re undecided!" —Samra

    Get it from Anthropologie for $1,548 (for the 7-foot size pictured above; $498+ for the other sizes; available in four sizes and gold, silver, and black).

    3. A four-in-one folding ottoman sleeper that easily changes from an ottoman to a lounger to a twin bed, which is especially great for anyone with limited space who may have guests stopping by every once and a while.

    Promising review: "I am very impressed with this ottoman. I live in a small apartment in NY with absolutely no storage or closet space, so I'm always looking for functional furniture and alternatives to air mattresses because I have nowhere to put them! This ottoman arrived quickly and assembled. It goes from ottoman, to chair, to lounger, to twin bed. It's very sturdy. I am 5-foot-7 and weigh 215 lbs. I was able to fit in this perfectly. The cushioning is very firm, so I bought a mattress topper for when guests have to sleep on it. Also, the linen-like material looks to be very durable, but not comfortable (think outdoor furniture material). However, I will not be using this for anything more than the ottoman and occasional bed, so that is not an issue for me, but if you are going to use this as a place to sit on a daily basis, I suggest getting the suede version of this. All in all, this product exceeded my expectations, and I think it is definitely worth the money." —Denise Baez

    Get it from Amazon for $355.99+ (available in six colors).

    4. A shallow bookshelf so absolutely beautiful that it will transform your home *and* give you a place to display your favorite trinkets and all those painted vases you tried after seeing that hack on TikTok.

    Promising review: "I am not sure why I waited for months to buy this. It was easy to install and looks amazing. It is sturdy enough, but be careful I believe it could chip easily if you are reckless. This is basically a statement piece and it needs a vase." —The FJH

    Get it from Amazon for $100.98.

It's beautifully made, easy to assemble with two people, super comfortable, economically made and packaged, and the customer service with Sabai is top-notch. I have neck issues and always have a lot of pain after napping on couches and have had no issues with napping on this couch. The only bad part of this couch is my dogs like to take the sectional portion away from me!." —Katherine Bechdol

    Crate & Barrel

    Plus, you can also just lift one of the sides and use the table as a desk, which is great if you're going to be working from home for a while now.

    Promising review: "I bought this table when I moved into my home over five years ago. It looks as beautiful as the day I bought it. It's sturdy, and I've never had an issue with the leaves sagging. The wood is really good quality and the colors are beautiful. The table is versatile and can work with a lot of different design styles. I love it with my black metal farmhouse chairs! This is a quality table that has stood the test of time, and at the same time is absolutely timeless." —CarrieGold

    Promising review: "The most beautiful, elegant day bed ever. It looks just like the picture. It has a nice tall back. I love the design. It is strong and sturdy. It does not wobble at all. Assembly is quick once you get flowing with it. Be very careful and pay special attention to not to strip the Allen screws." —Joy

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $245.91 (available in four colors).

    10. A hand-woven printed stool with boho-inspired flair you can use as a place to rest your feet while you sit on your couch or even an extra seat.

    Jungalow is a Black woman-owned business founded by Justina Blakeney filled with home collections designed in Los Angeles. For every purchase, at least two trees are planted.

    Promising review: "We LOVE this stool for our living room! It arrived within a week, which is super impressive considering COVID-19 normal shipping delays. It came in perfect condition as well, and I appreciate the re-using of cardboard boxes to help save the planet! It really is such a fun touch to liven up our living room, as well as provide extra seating. It can hold a lot of weight and is super sturdy. The wool stitching is soft and comfortable. The colors are bright and vibrant, while being muted enough to blend into most color palettes. I used a gift card I had gotten for my birthday from here, and it was super user friendly to order. I even posted on Instagram and the social media team is super lovely. I can't wait to order again from Jungalow!" —Alli K.

    Get it from Jungalo for $210.

    11. A four-door mirror console table designed to be thin so it can fit basically anywhere in your home — from your entry way to even behind your couch.

    Reviewer pic of the thin wood-top table with four doors in the front with mirrors and a design on top of them.

    Promising review: "It’s gorgeous. It’s a bit smaller than what I expected, but it’s still a huge piece and looks amazing in my entryway. It’s not a true grey, however. It’s a greenish tinted grey. It’s still great, and no one is bugged by the slight greenish tint. The shelves hold quite a bit, but will bow if there’s too much weight on them." —Eddy

    Get it from Amazon for $738.32 (available in black and grey).

    12. An industrial heavy duty clothing rack you *could* use as a place to store any extra clothes and shoes that don't fit in your closet or just as a place to display your favorite pieces as part of your decor.

    The garment rack with clothes on it and two wood shelves at the bottom with shoes and accessories and a shelf at the top with other accessories on it.

    Promising review: "I love this clothing rack! It’s made with real wood that’s very nicely stained. The metal pipe and fittings are heavy-duty and add to the industrial look of it. You’ll need a couple hours and a drill to put it together, but it’s well worth it. It’s also a great value for the price compared to others I’ve seen. I highly recommend it!" —TraceyH

    Get it from Amazon for $229.89.

    13. A gold metal bar cart with tempered glass shelves that have a silk-screen geometric pattern for a fun added detail, plus wheels on the bottom that lock into place so you can easily rearrange it in the room until you find the exact perfect spot.

    Reviewer pic of the bar cart with two glass-top shelves with a geometric pattern to them  and assorted alcohol bottles and glasses on each one.

    Promising review: "This bar cart is perfect for our needs. A great size, it can hold a substantial amount of products and the thickness of the glass helps it feel very sturdy. The glass pattern — really, the cart's whole design — helps make this a (usable) statement piece. One glass panel arrived with a slight scratch — barely noticeable to admirers, but we knew it was there — and the company replaced it immediately free of charge once we had sent through a photo. Excellent customer service and prompt communication. I'm very happy with the choice we made after searching for so long and can't help admiring it each time we walk through our front door." —KP

    Get it from Amazon for $169.77.

    14. A handmade wood bed frame so simple yet absolutely breathtaking that even if you decide to change your bedroom decor over the years, it will match whatever style you choose.

    Wood bed frame with slots in the headboard in a bedroom.

    Promising review: "This bed is gorgeous. It's made of solid alder wood with a walnut finish that shows the lovely grain of the wood. The pieces are beautifully finished and fit together with no gaps. The design is simple; there is no need to screw anything together. The bed is solid, with no awkward shifting or squeaking. I was surprised by how well the bed was packed for shipment. It fits in a flat box, with a wooden frame built around the exterior of the box, with the pieces inside well padded. The two gentlemen who did the white-glove delivery were courteous and meticulous in how they carried the box into my house and set up the bed just the way I wanted. I love this bed so much that I bought a second one as a wedding gift for my son and his new wife (to go with the new Parachute mattress). My only dilemma is to find nightstands that do this bed justice." —Caz W.

    Get it from Parachute for $2,500+ (available in queen and king and in brown and black).

    15. A velvet green accent chair to add a luxe touch to the room and make you feel like royalty anytime you sit in it.

    Green velvet chair with back pillow and black metal frame in a living room.

    Promising review: "This chair is beautiful! It’s the perfect addition to my small living room. It’s not the most comfortable chair ever but no one really is going to sit in it for a long period of time. I may just grab another one of these in the near future." —Paige

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $229.99 (available in green and grey).

    16. A handmade oak bench made from recycled wood you can set at the end of your bed or even by the door as a nice place to put your shoes on before you head out.

    Promising review: "The bookshelf looks amazing! Super sturdy and made with real wood!!! Good quality and fast shipping with the price! So easy to put it together!

    Promising review: "Love at first sight! No photo or description can fully give this justice to how beautiful it is in person! The craftsmanship-quality is top-notch, really super nice! This is a high-end item for sure. The drawers are even super nice. It's sturdy and heavy-duty. The details are exquisite. The manufacturer really packaged it with care, it arrived in perfect condition. Use glass cleaner with a microfiber cloth. and it sparkles. I can’t stop looking at it! It’s the most gorgeous thing in my bedroom now!" —Leah

    Dark brown wood tv stand with peg legs and two shelves and two doors on either side with a tv sitting on top of it.

    Promising review: "This cabinet is even a great deal nicer than in the picture. The assembly is easy and accomplished in a few hours and that includes getting interrupted with a number of professional phone calls. The design is mid-century, very clean and straight. Most of the wood is actual wood so the cabinet is heavy and solid. The finish is a warm medium brown. This cabinet is a winner. I love this cabinet." —Peter

    Get it from Novogratz on Wayfair for $306.99.

    21. A round wood-top pedestal table for a sleek yet sophisticated piece you can easily fit four people around without taking up your whole kitchen.

    22. A walnut wood dresser to give yourself an easy place to organize and store your ever-growing clothing collection while also adding a sleek look to your bedroom.

    The wood five-drawer dresser with leather pull tabs and white frame with dark brown legs in a room.

    Promising review: "I really love the aesthetic and quality of this dresser. The white frame is painted wood, so to me, it looks better than a lacquer or plastic finish. The self-closing drawers are also a great touch. Echoing other reviewers, I have found that the drawers may not close all the way because they get caught on the leather pulls of the drawer below. That said, I found that just giving the pulls a little tug down before each time you close a drawer will prevent this from happening." —Paul C.

    Get it from Article for $849 (for the five-drawer style pictured above; $649+ for the other sizes; available in 3-, 5-, and 6- drawers).

    23. An upholstered headboard to elevate your bedroom so it basically shouts to everyone, "AN ADULT LIVES HERE."

    Reviewer pic of the tufted headboard with thick border behind a bed in a room.

    Get it from Amazon for $219.99 (for the king size; $129.99+ for the other sizes; available in twin-king and in six colors).

    24. A wood cabinet that's compact enough to keep in any room where you need more storage, because your place will look cleaner (and in turn feel bigger) when your belongings are tucked inside.

    Wood cabinet with two doors and black metal base in a living room.

    Promising review: "I had a very small space to fit a cabinet and this one was a perfect fit. It’s a beautiful color and soft closing doors make it a wonderful addition to my living room." —Ashley

    Get it from CB2 for $849.

    25. A triple-wide cabinet wide enough to fit a sound bar as well as other smart designs to hide cables and TV accessories that might otherwise be an eyesore in the room.

    The triple-wide cabinet with wood slotted front and black metal legs under a TV in a living room.

    Promising review: "This a beautiful and functional piece of furniture that offers a modern design with a variety of features that make component installation and cable management a breeze. What isn't evident in the pictures is the amount of thought given to ventilating heat not only through the front but from the top and back as well. The top surface is frosted glass that rests on rubber pads above the wooden top of the console that has ventilation slots to allow heat to escape. The surface has a nice smooth texture that is non-reflective and doesn't show fingerprints. The wood surfaces are well finished and consistently stained. All-in-all, I'm extremely pleased with the unit. There are certainly less expensive options available elsewhere but as is typically the case, you get what you pay for. If you like your audio/video/gaming gear but want to have it packaged in a way that will look great in a living or family room, I highly recommend it." —Drew Spencer

    Get it from Amazon for $2,529 (available in three colors).

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

    Get it from World Market for $229.99.

    27. And a breathtakingly beautiful curved velvet sofa you may think belongs in a modern art museum instead of your own home.

    Curved sofa with velvet teal fabric and wood legs in a room.
    Jonathan Adler

    Promising review: "I receive my lovely sofa today, and I must say I'm obsessed. It's so elegant and easy to move around my living room because of the shape. I get to play with what corner I want to use. :) The color is perfect and can go with anything. I was a little worried if it would be comfy however, I'm still able to snuggle up with a throw to watch TV. I'm a happy customer." —Maurice
