    Promising review: "This desk got me through my last semester of undergrad.

It is definitely a must-buy for college students!" —Cyndi

    4. A metal utility cart you can use to wheel around your kitchen appliances, electronics, or craft supplies.

    Metal utility cart on wheels with three shelves filled with kitchen supplies

    Promising review: "I was looking for something with wheels to replace a bedside table so I could move it around easily. I saw this and decided to get two of them to try out. I couldn't be happier. I am using them in place of bedside tables and they are the perfect size. I really like the size and depth of the baskets as well as how spaced apart they are. My laptop is about 15-16 inches and fits perfectly in the baskets, which was a huge plus. While these work great for what I'm using them for now, I do expect to repurpose them once my boyfriend and I are able to afford to buy our own house. Thus, I feel these are great for a multitude of applications. I also really like the color more than I thought I would; it's kind of matte, which I like." —meags

    Price: $147.19 (available in four colors)

    6. A geometric storage cabinet for the person who, not unlike these cubes, has more than one dimension.

    Wooden storage cabinet with geometric-cube design on doors

    Promising review: "What a beautiful piece! Arrived quickly and packaging was in great shape. The wood is solid and beautifully designed. I’m a 25-year-old girl and the least handy person imaginable, but the instructions were extremely easy to follow. It took me around 20 minutes from start to finish to attach the bottom pieces to the larger cabinet. Color is beautiful and wood very sturdy. I’m beyond stoked!!" —Bri

    Price: $169.99

    7. A wheeled bar cart that'll make for a crucial entertainment piece.

    Gold bar cart with bottles and bar supplies on it

    Promising review: "West Elm style at a Target price! I had been eyeing a similar bar cart at West Elm that was double to triple the price of this. I am SO glad that I bought this cart. It has such a stunning high-end look. I could not be happier with this purchase. I am absolutely obsessed and highly recommend." —tammy

    Price: $149.99 (available in gold and brass)

    Promising review: "This just arrived, it was easy to assemble, and we love it! Our living room is mid-century modern, and this looks great. We find it comfortable to sit on and watch TV. The fabric is easily wipeable (our 3-year-old already christened it with peanut butter). Really looking forward to having company over and show it off." —Cait

    Price: $261.74+ (available in five colors)

    10. A three-shelf trestle bookcase if you want to lean into the open shelving look.

    Wooden leaning shelf with books and succulents

    Promising review: "I am in love with this bookshelf! My son has run out of room on his combo toy chest/bookshelf, plus he has lots of taller books that weren't able to stand up on the shelf and they were weighing the top shelf down. Needless to say I was looking for a sturdier, taller shelf. This bookshelf surpassed my expectations! It's very sturdy, high quality, and beautiful to look at (I almost think it's too nice for a 5-year-old little boy's room)." —EasternNCMommy

    Price: $41.99

    11. A super comfy upholstered bench your pet pooch is destined to take over as their throne.

    12. A three-door media cabinet if you like your decor functional, stylish, and unfussy.

    Rustic wood and black trim media cabinet with television mounted above

    Promising review: "This is a very good, sturdy entertainment stand. It is a beautiful design. Assembly took me alone about two hours (would have been an hour and a half but I put a piece on backwards and had to redo half the assembly again). It includes all items needed to assemble so even if you don't have a toolbox you will be OK. I also love the hinges on the door are the gentle shut, so my kids can't slam them and they allow for adjustments with only a screw turn." —Crissys2angels

    Price: $199.99 (available in two colorways)

    13. An oak shoe rack to give your kicks a proper home that won't disrupt the flow of your rustic decor.

    Minimalist white shoe rack with wooden surface

    Promising review: "Exactly as described and shown in photo. Good quality, sturdy, and top ‘wood’ shelf looks nice. Plus it is stackable which I didn’t realize at time of purchase. Fits perfectly on side of standard closet to help maximize those harder-to-access spaces." —Pottsgirl

    Price: $39.99

    14. A five-shelf bookshelf if you want a stylish (and durable) storage solution for your books and trinkets.

    Wooden five-shelf bookcase filled with books and trinkets

    Promising review: "Absolutely love it! Sometimes you can see something in a picture and when it comes it doesn’t look the same. Not in this case! Met my expectations." —Leena

    Price: $154.99 (available in seven colors).

    15. A six-cube organizer to take full advantage of your storage space and provide an alternative to kicking your shoes off at the front door.

    Six-cube wooden organizer filled with bins and rain boots

    Promising review: "Very pleased with the organizer, bought it for the kids' books, puzzles, and smaller toys. Very easy to put together, and so sturdy, I am already looking to purchase a second!" —JR

    Black hanging box with minimalist rose gold hardware mounted against wall

    Promising review: "I love these! I ordered two of them to fill a space on my wall, and they go perfectly. Also, they are higher-quality than I thought they would be. They’re a nice heavy ceramic which is great, they look so classy. They also come with hanging hardware in matching metal which is nice. Highly suggest!" —Jvoth19
