    1. A coffee table you ~clearly~ need to make a statement 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).

    2. 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 $61.99.

    3. A decorative tray that'll make your coffee table feel super fancy.


    Get it from Walmart for $29.

    4. A set of apothecary jars to help organize your bathroom, because we all know cotton swabs deserve better than the plastic box they come in.


    Get a set of three jars (15 ounces, 30 ounces, and 60 ounces) from Amazon for $26.99.

    5. An adjustable kitchen cart for when your counter space situation just isn't cutting it.


    I just want to be able to stand in my kitchen and chop vegetables, but apparently that is too much to ask!

    Get it from Wayfair for $52.99 (originally $82.99).

    6. A mirror tray to display all your "nice" jewels on — you know, the ones that look fancy but that you actually got for super cheap.


    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    7. A super soft faux sheepskin rug you can put on the floor to add a soft spot...or even on a chair that needs a little extra love.


    Get it from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in nine sizes and in white and grey).

    8. A four-tier vintage bookcase so you have a place to put all those books you have. You'll read them all one day, you swear! *Goes out to buy more.*

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! It's exactly what I needed. It didn’t fit my bigger plants but fit medium ones just fine. It's surprisingly super sturdy once the screws are tightened. It's the perfect height and silhouette. I want to buy another , but I am trying to convince myself I don’t need it. The directions were straightforward, and I couldn’t be happier." —richelle

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in black and metal/wood).

    9. A wall-mounted cup rack to display all those coffee mugs you've accumulated over the years as gifts from all your friends and family.


    Promising review: "I live in studio apartment, and this is helping me save space out of my cabinet. It looks great. I'm happy with it." —Nita jade Steel

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    10. A gold wire photo wall frame to showcase photos, mementos, and other small trinkets.

    World Market

    Promising review: "I love this! I put this on my bedroom wall for photos, cards, and inspiration pictures. It's easy to hang, looks great, doesn't take up too much space, and comes with the clips. It's easy to change out the photos too." —lori

    Get it from World Market for $15.99.

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

    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.

    12. A four-cube floating shelf as something different to put up on your wall other than just "normal" art.

    Promising review: "These are really simple but nice shelves. I love the design. It really adds to any room. It took about 10 minutes to put the shelves together. I looked at the photo on Amazon as I linked the pieces together. It was easy." —K.F

    Get it from Amazon for $23.39+ (available in white, gray, and brown).

    13. A modern sofa people will think you spent so much more on than you did. Couches are expensive, but this has the quality without the high cost.


    I recently moved to a new apartment and wanted to upgrade my couch situation without spending a ton of money. This couch is great because it looks super chic, is actually very comfortable, and is a great price. It fits in my small-ish space (hello NYC living), and was actually super easy to put together (it did need two people, but it only took about 10 minutes). Plus, most of the pieces came stored in the base of the couch, so I can easily take it apart and do that again if I (ever) decide to move.

    Get it from Walmart for $319 (originally $339).

    14. A macrame wall hanging to give your home that boho-chic look you've been trying to achieve without the boutique price tag.


    Promising review: "THIS IS LITERALLY AMAZING. At other 'trendy' stores, this would be $60+ dollars, but I can tell you this is way better. It's such amazing quality and really a great accent piece to my wall. The price is amazing for what you get. Now my little sitting area looks like one of those boho rooms you see on Pinterest! I highly recommend!!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    15. A faux fur pouf you can use as an extra seat when you have friends over or as a soft place to rest your feet while you watch TV. We love multipurpose items!

    JC Penny

    Get it from JC Penny for $71.40 (available in ivory, grey, and brown).

    16. A coat and shoe rack that'll take advantage of any extra space you have in your entry way. No coat closet? No problem! Now, your coats, shoes, and accessories can act as decor.


    Promising review: "This is an awesome coat stand. It's really nice in the area we have by our front door in our little home. We hang more than 5 jackets/coats, 3 backpacks, a leather motorcycle jacket, and umbrellas on it, plus all of our shoes and a small tool box. It keeps everything in place and we haven't had one issue yet." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in black and white).

    17. 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).

    18. A set of four pillow covers that are an easy upgrade to whatever situation you currently have going on in your home. Just put these on your couch, and you'll feel like the room is instantly refreshed.


    And don't forget the pillow inserts!

    Promising review: "I love these pillow covers. I have been trying to do simple updates to my furnishings, and I think throw pillows are the perfect way to do it! These are a great price and great quality! I'm pleasantly surprised at how sturdy the zipper is and how great the material feels! I think these pillows are even better in person. So happy I purchased them!!" —Christi

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95.

    19. A floor lamp to add ~watts~ and ~watts~ of light to the room.


    Promising review: "I love this lamp! I was recently at a large, furniture store (think Swedish meatballs) shopping for lamps, and most of them were nice but came with a 50 dollar or up price tag so I just wasn’t 'feeling it,' as the kids like to say. Imagine my surprise when this lamp came up in a recent Amazon search. I love everything about it—quick shipping, easy assembly (my 11 year old did it) and great light output. It has three settings. The space where we put the lamp is odd, so the adjustable abilities of this lamp come in very handy!" —heather lockard

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in black and gold).

    20. A hanging mirror so you can take another look at yourself Ally Maine-style before you leave in the morning.


    Get it from Target for $24.99.

    21. A chic two-tier desk – you can display decor on the upper level without worrying about it interfering with your actual work space.

    Promising review: "This desk, once put together, is very beautiful, sturdy, modern, and looks expensive. I assembled it by myself in about an hour. Highly recommend! I use it for when I work from home and I’ve loved it every time." —Alexci

    Get it from Amazon for $53.51+ (available in four finishes).

    22. A bar cart to store all your bottles of wine and alcohol so they don't clutter your cabinets.


    Promising review: "It was very easy to assemble and it looked just like the picture. It looks very classy and really sets off the room. I couldn't wait to buy liquor and show it off. My guests are so impressed." —shea

    Get it from Walmart for $64.

    23. A dinnerware set so you can *finally* replace that mismatched set you've been using for a few years too long.


    The set includes four dinner plates, four dessert plates, and four bowls.

    Promising review: "These are modern without a high price tag. They are a perfect budget buy. The color is a perfect matte grey, and the dishes are sturdy. They hold up to everyday use and are dishwasher safe. Not a single scratch from forks and knives." —ERICA JONES

    Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $42.46+ (available in four colors).

    24. A set of prisma wall decor you can put up on your wall to ~shine bright like a diamond~.


    Promising review: "I love these! You can either keep individual and place on a shelf or hang on the wall (mounting strips included) or can connect the same pieces (you get 2 of all 3 different shapes) with plastic pieces that are included and hang from the ceiling with wire and hook that are ALSO INCLUDED! It's super simple, and you can get very creative with placement. I definitely love these! I am planning to buy some air plants to add to my wall display." —Adam D.

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $29.99 (available in copper, black, and brass).

    25. An accent chair that'll become the focal point of the room. Everyone will love it so much, they'll start fighting over who gets to sit there. Savesies!


    Get it from Wayfair for $83.99.

    26. A modern leather table lamp to illuminate your room and your sense of style.


    Promising review: "I would order another in a heartbeat. The rectangular shape of the base and lampshade make it space saving. I use this on a bedside table with stick bulb, and it provides the perfect ambiance. The glow from the bulb is not overbearing as the bulb is well contained in the shade. The on/off switch is on the cord, which works for me, but may be challenging for individuals with fine motor problems or arthritic hands. This lamp arrived in perfect condition with no knicks, dings, dints, creases, or other unsightly blemishes. Had I known I like so well, I would have ordered another at the same time to ensure an identical set." —JVM123

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in 18 colors).

    27. A food storage jar so chic, you'll want to put your coffee (or quinoa or whatever else you stock up on) in them ASAP.


    Promising review: "I love the look of this canister, and it seems to be well made. It seals securely. I use it for tea, and it works just great. I'm very happy with the purchase." —in paradise 123

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in three sizes).

    28. A framed canvas that'll make you look like a modern art fan even if you'll never be able to afford a real piece.

    TJ Maxx

    Get it from TJ Maxx for $39.99.

    29. A throw blanket because there's honestly not much better than spending your Friday night on your couch binging the latest season of Killing Eve under a blanket. Bars? Who needs to go to bars on Friday night?


    Promising review: "I've had these blankets for about a month. I have the large and the small diamond print teal blankets. I bought them for my guest beds, just as a throw in case someone needed an extra layer. At first, I wasn't super jazzed. They had a bit of an itchy texture and smelled new. After I washed them, they were "fine", for a throw blanket in a guest room. However, over the last month, I noticed my guests have grown attached to them, and they get carried all over he house! As I've washed them multiple times, every time they get softer. I really have come to like these blankets and would definitely recommend them!" —luvbug

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in five styles and 10 colors).

    30. An artificial cactus so even if you don't have a green thumb (it's okay, I don't either), you can add a bit of greenery to your home.


    Promising review: "I love this little guy! The cactus is the perfect size and is of very high quality. Everyone that has seen it thinks it’s real, which is certainly a plus." —ChicRaquel

    Get it from Target for $24.99.
