3. A mint cake stand for some retro bakery charm. Time to start charging your roommates a nickel for each cookie they take. Promising review: "I bought this cake stand as a gift for my sister.

pair of nesting tables you can keep together or break up and use in separate rooms.

industrial bar cart everyone will love to see, even if it's not filled with booze. It's just as nice in the bathroom holding towels and toiletries!
Promising review: "I LOVE this bar cart. It's multi-functional and looks great in any room. I decided to use it as a wine bar/coffee bar. It holds so much! I also love how sturdy this piece is. My only issue when putting it together was that I had too much confidence and didn't read the instructions thoroughly, which resulted in having to take the legs on and off three different times. I definitely recommend reading the instructions as you go. The pieces look similar but they are marked for a purpose! I liked how all the screws and tools came in an organized package which made the process much easier." — Dani
ladder bookshelf to help you climb new literary heights.
Promising review: "This fits into my small studio wonderfully, and now holds my printer and technical items, along with tons of art supplies. And the best news is the tiny bit of floor space it takes up. Plus it looks good! It was relatively easy to set up, despite not-so-simple diagrams. As a retired forms designer, I was itching to redesign and simplify the directions. But love the product, and would buy it again." — CatWoman

clear beauty organizer so you don't have to dig through all your makeup bags looking for one specific eyeshadow palette.

reversible L-shaped desk that looks a lot like — dare I say it? — Megadesk.
Promising review: "You can not beat this desk for the value. It looks like a $1,000 desk for less than $250. Instructions are extremely easy to follow. It said it takes two people 30 minutes to put together and I can see that being a possibility if you were familiar with furniture assembly. It took us longer than that, but we were taking breaks and rereading the instructions. As I said, the instructions were easy to follow; we did not have to redo anything and we did not mess anything up. The hardware comes in a sectioned out plastic tray so that saves you a TON of time because you don't have to sort your screws. Overall, I would recommend this desk 10 out of 10 times." — Jennifer

LED wireless charging lamp providing both light and a charge for your smartphone.
Promising: "This thing is incredibly flexible and the light is bright which makes it a really great desk lamp or for your nightstand. It turns on with a single touch and turns off this way too.

expandable shower caddy for anyone who is sick of accidentally knocking all their shampoo bottles into the tub every time they get in.
Promising review: "This shower caddy is great. One of the best features is the ability to stabilize it. We all have experienced caddy's sliding back and forth on the shower head but with this one it does not. You have to unscrew the tension screws. Also, you can rearrange the baskets and it has multiple hooks to hang things. I love it and highly recommend. Would purchase this item again." — Nahni

Great quality and love the look. I am all about organizing and these are a must!" — Kathryn
