    1. A black rattan tripod floor lamp for a minimalist-yet-moody, ~tropi-goth~ update that looks plucked from the Serena & Lily catalog.

    The lamp

    Promising review: “I love this lamp. I previously had a very plain floor lamp that didn't do much to perk up the living room. I added an Edison-style bulb to this lamp and it makes a huge difference in how pleasing my space feels. I love how the pattern of the lamp gets cast onto the ceiling and wall. It's great to turn off all of your other lights and just enjoy the subtle warm glow from this lamp.” —savage riz

    Price: $100

    2. A white rainbow wall tapestry that'll add warmth and texture to any room.

    The tapestry with complementary neutral accessories

    Promising review: "Great design and weight! It looks great above my bed and adds a simple but interesting-looking design." —Kate416

    Price: $30

    3. An embroidered shower curtain with delicate knotted fringe and contrast stitching for a look that's light and airy as well as polished. Translation: It will hide that wash-day rat nest of drain hair you expect someone else to clean.

    The shower curtain

    Promising review: "Beautiful, high quality, and I like the pattern...exactly what I’d hoped for." —Ainslee1777

    Price: $24.99

    4. A black metal pharmacy mirror, a convincing dupe for much pricier versions, for a bathroom or entryway update that complements any style. The solid-bottomed shelf is perfect for displaying pretty amber bottles and status-y candles.

    The mirror displaying a small plant on its shelf

    Promising review: “This was absolutely perfect for what we needed. We are currently updating our half-bath powder room, and this mirror is the perfect combination of vintage and classic. The black iron trim gives it an eclectic and vintage vibe, and the size is perfect for a tiny bathroom vanity. I could not be happier.” —MereHiggy

    Price: $70 (available in three colors)

    5. A brass hook, similar to ones sold by Schoolhouse, to replace squeaky towel rings, cheap plastic hooks, and clunky coat racks. You’ll want the clean lines and on-trend finishes of these functional beauties in every room.

    The brass hook

    Promising review: "I purchased this in black. It definitely looks nice, it's sturdy and perfect in my kitchen. I added it next to my sink on the wall to hang our dish towel. Minimalist style perfection." —Target reviewer

    Price: $4.99 (available in two colors)

    6. A black globe LED lamp with brass accents that'll give your room a serious glow-up and could easily be mistaken for CB2 lighting.

    The lamp on a bedside table

    Promising review: "These lamps look way more expensive than their price point. The light is a nice soft glow, not too harsh. They instantly freed up space on our little side tables and made everything look cleaner. The base is nice and heavy so there is no worry that they will topple over. I love the way they turn on too with the button on the cord." —Greenwood

    Price: $27.99

    7. A cane pattern, open weave basket made from natural water hyacinth for stashing hand towels or masks. Plant parents — it also does double duty as a super cute planter basket for succulents.

    The basket

    Promising review: "Love this basket to hold my faux plant in an 8" pot. It can go with a variety of home decor styles. My style is more of a modern, boho glam and this little nugget fits right in to help ground the space." —NYCKittymama

    Price: $18

    8. A Novogratz art deco-inspired white metal bed with gold accents to replace outdated (or nonexistent) bedframes. The updated vintage style lends itself to farmhouse, boho, and modern interiors and won't require a box spring.

    The bed

    Promising review: "This bed frame is so pretty. I love the white color with the gold accents. It is well made and very sturdy. It does not rock back and forth or makes those annoying squeaking sounds. I like that it is easy to put together." —Reetl1

    Price: $199.99+ (available in sizes twin–king)

    9. A corrugated tunnel cat scratcher for the modern kitten in your life. The design is playful and eco-friendly — simply recycle it when it's spent.

    The cat scratcher

    Promising review: "My cats love it. In fact, they fight over it." —PHall

    Price: $100

    11. A set of 24 wood and metal hangers, notched for anti-slippage, to replace the hodge-podge of plastic hangers and wire ones with ancient dry cleaner advertisements still on them. Ooo, you fancy.

    The hanger

    Price: $20

    12. A set of two wire dining chairs, with heathered greyish-green linen seat pads, that project restrained Danish modernity. Your space will be transformed from "ho hum" to "holla!"

    The chairs in a dining room

    Promising review: "LOVEEEE these chairs! I am a decorator and couldn't be happier with the quality, comfort, and style!" —Mgambin

    Price: $130 (available in two colors)

    13. A striped, tasseled curtain panel with just the right amount of sheerness to add polish and playfulness to bare windows. Even better, these cute curtains are machine-washable, a major score for allergy sufferers and clean freaks. (Like me.)

    A pair of the curtain panels

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE these curtains! I have changed my curtains out numerous times because I just wasn’t happy with how the looked in my living room. I won’t be changing them again anytime soon! These look very expensive for such a great price! I love that they are not sheer but also not completely light blocking. They have a very nice weight to them. They look great with boho decor and also farmhouse decor!" —Shoe lover

    Price: $24.99 (available in four sizes and two colors)

    14. A wire basket with copper handles that brings style and organization to cluttered pantries, bathrooms, and shelves. Form AND function for the win!

    The basket holds folded bath towels and is displayed with two other types of baskets

    Promising review: "Love, love, love these!!! I have several and used them in the laundry room for supplies, in my pantry for snacks, and in my bathroom for hair items to keep them organized under the sink. The copper looks classy and very neat. I have gotten many compliments on them. I need to purchase more." —kap

    Price: $12

    15. A snuggly boucle throw with plush reverse for both cozy movie nights and casually draping over furniture as the pros do.

    The blanket

    Price: $20 (available in three colors)

    16. A comforter and sham set with a solid and muslin-like striped side, both with cute stitching all over. The reversible comforter comes with two matching shams, the result is both put-together and irresistibly cozy.

    The comforter and sham set

    Promising review: "We had a little bit of a wait for this bedding because it was always sold out! No wonder it was so popular, the colors are subtle but still have a nice texture. The comforter is very light which we LOVE. I think it also complemented our decor seamlessly, which is an incredible relief." —Target reviewer

    Price: $79.99+ (available in sizes twin–king)

    17. A set of six stemless, stackable wineglasses for a minimalist solution to mismatched sets and cluttered cabinets. And at this price, you won't lament the loss should an errant pup tail cause one to break.

    The glasses on a dining table

    Promising review: "Love these! They are as good (or better) than any other more expensive wineglasses." —Shay

    Price: $11

    18. A geometric gray and white accent rug that injects style into literally any room in your home. It's larger than a typical doormat, has a nonslip rubber backing, and is machine-washable.

    The patterned rug

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised with how nice this rug looks. It's so hard to buy a rug online, you never know if the rug is going to look exactly like it does in the picture. I can say that this rug looks much nicer in person than it does in the picture, and actually, it has the feel and look of a much more expensive rug. I like this rug so much that I've already ordered another one." —Jane

    Price: $19.99

    19. An oversized, gray and cream striped lumbar pillow that will instantly elevate basic bedrooms and lackluster living rooms into effortlessly chic loungey respites.

    The lumbar pillow

    Promising review: “Cute AND comfy! This pillow caught my eye because of the cute design. I love the grey and cream color combo. The size is perfect as well. Then I picked it up and it was so plush and comfy! It perfectly matches my bedding set. Total win!” —tpe001

    Price: $29.99

    20. A Novogratz asymmetrical bench you can use as dining table seating, as a plant stand, or in an entry styled with hooks, baskets, and galoshes. The versatility, clean lines, and quirky angles make this piece an upgrade no-brainer.

    The bench

    Promising review: "A cute bench that's easy to assemble, sturdy, and looks great. I’m using this in my sunroom to hold some small plants with room for a small pillow and seating area. It's about the size and height of most entry benches but adds some pizzazz. I tried to order from other vendors but Target had the fastest delivery and easiest ordering!" —Babs

    Price: $109.99 (available in two colors)

    21. A seven-mode Waterpik RainFall shower head that'll make you wonder why the heck you waited so long to treat yo' self.

    A smiling man showering using showerhead

    Price: $29.49

    22. A delicately fringed hand towel to add a pop of color and a hint of whimsy to your bathroom. And, it's not just eye-candy; this towel is durable and dries quickly.

    The hand towel folded on top of the bath towel

    Promising review: "I absolutely adore these towels and grab one or two every time I see them in stock. I’m a fan of thinner towels that fry faster and these are perfect. I’ve washed them many times and they’re just fine!" —Chloe

    Price: $8 (available in two sizes)

    23. A rattan cage accent table for those who can't get enough of the trend. Use it as a side table or nightstand, it adds laid-back breeziness to any room.

    Three of the bar stools

    Promising review: "I ordered two of these for our small island. They’re the perfect size. The wood is a warm, natural tone and they are surprisingly sturdy! I needed something smaller but didn’t want to lose out on comfort and style. These fit the bill perfectly. To my surprise, they arrived already assembled. I’m a big Studio McGee fan, and I have found their Target line to be great so far!" —Jnguyen7

    Price: $79

    26. A set of two Cravings by Chrissy Teigen nonstick frying pans for anyone who's been cooking all day, every day, and all year on the same busted pan. 🙋‍♀️

    The set of two pans

    The set includes a 9- and 11-inch pan in a shade of warm gray.

    Promising review: "I love these pans! I love Chrissy Teigen but I'll be honest, I don't normally buy celebrity "made" products. I'm always a little bit hesitant because I think they're selling the name and the product won't be that good. These pans ARE that good! I hardly use any oil/fat in them when I cook with them. The best part, they are sooo easy to clean. I believe they are dishwasher safe but I always choose to hand wash mine. In conclusion, if you are on the fence about purchasing these pans DO IT. You won't regret it." —LM875

    Price: $34.99 (available in two colors)

    27. An off-white, striped table runner with knotted fringe to elevate and add ease to both festive meals and those involving microwave quesadillas.

    The table runner

    Price: $17.99

    28. A chunky-knit wool area rug in heathered gray for a plush underfoot with oh-so-hygge vibes. Try layering it over a larger rug for an easy update with added interest.

    A closeup of the rug's texture

    Promising review: "These rugs are awesome buys! I have three I get tons of compliments on them. They are mostly wool so they shed but not badly. They are super thick and cushy and the color really hides dirt in high traffic areas. Can’t get enough of them!" —Mystyle

    Price: $24.99+ (available in seven sizes)

    29. A brass-finish wire organizer for tidying magazines, cookbooks, file folders, and paperwork, that'll shine amongst your newly ~zhushed~ decor.

    The magazine file

    Price: $12.99

    30. A Serta all-season feather and down fiber comforter that'll transform your sleep from "OK" to "OMG." The super fluffy, temperature-regulating duvet insert will make you feel like you're sleeping in a cloud.

    The down comforter

    Price: $79.99+ (available in sizes twin–king)

    31. A black metal gallery frame with an oversized bright white mat that'll be the cherry-on-top for a newly spruced space. Now imagine what a triptych of your favorite snaps could do. 🤔

    The frame

    Promising review: "Great picture frames! They arrived on time packaged well with no damage to any of the five frames I purchased. They're lightweight and easy to hang, too. I love the thin, metal frame for a more modern look and the price can't be beat. I used these to hang photos of our dogs in a hallway." —Target reviewer

    Price: $20+ (available in four sizes)
