    3. A wide storage ottoman – it's a great multi-purpose item with a cushy, supportive structure that you can use to kick your feet up on after a long day or as extra seating, and a spacious storage facility for blankets, pillows, and other essentials.

    4. A 12-inch hybrid mattress that combines foam and coil technology to give you the best night's sleep possible. It's just thick enough to give you tons of support without being super stiff, and

    5. A cottage-inspired kitchen island set with two matching stools, because it's an easy way to upgrade your kitchen (especially if the fixtures that came with the place aren't quite the best). You'll instantly add storage space, dining space, and increase the space's visual appeal.

    6. A wooden upholstered drawer storage bench, so you can say goodbye to the days of overly cluttered dresser drawers and hello to organization! This splayed-leg bench is a great spot to put on shoes, savor a morning coffee, or just pile your favorite blankets.
