    11. A swing net chair so you have the most ideal (and stylish!) reading nook ever created for mankind. This + some natural light = instant ~boho chic~ appeal., Amazon

    This is how I imagine Zoe Kravitz's character spends all her time on Big Little Lies.

    Promising review: "I bought one of these...and then bought two more. I have these hanging in my living room, and they are perfect. I have each swing hanging from a single hook (you just put both rings over the same one). The quality is fantastic and the price was great. I'm pretty sure this is the same quality as the swings that cost almost double the price. Go for it. You won't regret it. These are great." —Emily

    Get it from Amazon for $68+ (available in two styles).

    12. A metal canopy bed frame for designing what I assume Marie Antoinette's bedroom would look like if she lived in present day. You'll probably feel so royal with this, you'll start shopping for crowns. I say go for it.


    It comes with a built-in headboard and footboard, as well as secured metal slats, side rails, and center legs for ensured stability.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about this bed because of the price. I moved across the country and left my favorite king size canopy frame behind in storage, because it was too large to transport at the time. I found this and jumped on the deal. If I’m being honest...I think I like it more than my $500 bed frame. It’s beautiful and has a very minimalistic feel to it. It isn’t overpowering. It's very sturdy! I imagine that I’ll have this bed frame for years to come." —DenaMarie

    Get it from Amazon for $167.43+ (available in sizes full–king and three colors).

    World Market

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised when this pouf arrived! The color is dusty rose, just like the picture. It perfectly matched my decor. It's very nice — I would buy it again if it came in other colors." —Sabura

    Get it from World Market for $44.99.

    14. A pair of ombré curtains that'll ~shed a light~ on your amazing taste (and *not* how much you spent). But seriously, it WILL make the most out of available natural light to help make your room feel airier.


    Promising review: "This is airy, light, and beautiful! It's all that I wanted it to be: just the right amount of sheer; it's not as transparent as tule. The linen texture gives it an elegant look. I'm very satisfied!" —Glenda

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in two sizes and five colors).

    15. A dark walnut hall tree so you can welcome guests with stylish decor as soon as they walk in — all while sneakily controlling clutter. Now a piles of shoes won't be the first thing you see.


    Promising review: "We got this for our entryway to keep shoes, bags, backpacks and such in a contained area. So far it is doing the job wonderfully. I was a little nervous about whether it would look as nice as the photos. It does! It's rustic but sleek and goes with our traditional decor. It is sturdy but I would recommend that it be placed against a wall." —VA from Bama

    Get it from Amazon for $147.32+ (available in two sizes/styles and in eight colors).

    16. A tufted split-back futon for updating your living room with a modern touch (hello, burst of color) without spending more than all your student loans combined just to get a new couch.

    Did I mention its fabric is hypoallergenic?

    Promising review: "I was worried it would look cheap. It doesn't, it looks amazing (color in the products sample photos is very accurate) and everyone compliments on how nice it looks in the room. It is comfortable to sit on. We've spent a lot of time sitting on it reading books this winter and it hasn't shown any wear. Also, it spot cleaned great." —Pankonin1218

    Get it from Amazon for $219.99+ (available in two colors).

    17. A retro oak desk with a riser and hairpin legs, because this'll give you somewhere chic to do your work instead of spending your entire hard-earned paycheck on furniture.

    Get it from Amazon for $59.80+ (available in five colors).

    18. A tasseled lighting sconce that'll add some unexpected texture to any space and fill it with warm light so your room always feels like a welcoming, cozy nook.


    Get it from Anthropologie for $89.95 (originally $118).

    19. A metal-and-wood bookcase so people won't be able to ~read~ between the lines when it comes to how much you spent. Who knew it took so little to make your home look so darn stately?

    Promising review: "I love this as my bedroom end table! It is easy to build. It is the perfect size for any sized bedroom or area. The wood-like material is also very beautiful. It brings luxury to a room. It was well-worth the purchase." —Nate & Neena

    Get it from Amazon for $64.85+ (available in two colors).

    20. A faux leather bar stool for making sure your guests always dine in style, even when you're just having leftover pizza. I do believe this will win your kitchen at LEAST one Michelin star.


    You can also get this as a dining chair or counter stool!

    Promising review: "These are quite nice, comfortable, and I totally love the mid-century style. I did not expect to have such quality of a product, especially for the price. It seems the quality is quite durable!" —rpb

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $70.77++ (available in four colors and three styles).

    21. A bamboo display shelf, because you can use this for just about anything — to show off your impressive plant collection, organize your bathroom, clear clutter in your living room, you get it. No matter what, this'll make everything on it look more refined.


    Promising review: "I have a new hobby: succulents! I share an apartment porch with a next door apartment, so I needed something like this to keep all my little plants organized but looking good. The quality of the bamboo felt great and it was overall easy to assemble once you figured out the general scheme of things. Everything went better than I expected. It's a great shelf, and my apartment neighbor already commented she might want one for herself!" —James G.

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (available in two colors).

    22. A studded velvet headboard that'll upgrade the very bed you've had since childhood into a hotel-worthy statement piece. You suddenly have a lot of staycations on your horizon.


    Get it from Target for $125.99+ (originally $139.99+; available in sizes twin–king and in pink).

    23. A wooden TV stand so your friends can admire your stylish placement of knick-knacks every movie night. What once just looked like clutter (hello, little succulents on your coffee table) now have a proper place. And! Harry Potter will look even better when on this impressive stage.


    Promising review: "I was a little worried about ordering a product online without seeing it up close, but it arrived one day early and was packaged extremely well. It is so pretty! Highly recommend to anyone that is interested, only took me about an hour and 15 minutes to put together myself, because I took my time and used all the wood glue for extra stability! It holds my Vizio 55", sound bar, and extras with room to spare." —Bre

    Get it from Amazon for $249+ (available in two sizes with or without a mount and in 11 colors).

    24. A tufted ottoman bench for hiding all your magazines from 2009 to automatically make your home look more put-together. Not to mention, you'll now have a sophisticated place to rest your feet.


    Promising review: "First off, this arrived so well packed that it was hard to open, which is a good thing. I just had to attach the four feet, and it was ready to use. It looks very expensive and looks quite good paired with my genuine black leather sofa. It's very sturdy, it has endured my dog jumping on it constantly as well as my two small grandchildren climbing inside of the storage area. I love the hinges on this, because they are safety ones that won't collapse on my grand kids." —Raisin

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in three colors).

    25. A metal console table, because what better says "sophisticated adult" than some chic entryway decor? No, we don't just throw our keys ANYWHERE. Please.


    Promising review: "This is a good buy! My sister took it upon herself to put this together for me, and she had no problems at all. It looks great in my entryway and is a place to drop my keys when I get home from work. Its slim design frees up space, and it's simple design doesn't compete with my existing furniture." —Teddi.Ursine

    Get it from Amazon for $71.96+ (available in seven colors).

    26. An over-the-toilet storage tower that'll not only make sure you're never stranded without TP again, but transform your extra towels and toiletry into a pretty display (without your savings going down the drain).

    Get it from Wayfair for $41.99.

    27. A shelf ladder bookcase so your furniture becomes a work of art itself. Better yet, it's designed to fit in corners for those of us with limited space — and for a price that's probably a fraction of what we spent on college textbooks.


    I paid good money for my textbooks — you better believe I'm putting them on display so people think I'm smart.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this bookshelf. I was worried that it would be flimsy, but the vertical supports are made of metal, so it can actually hold a lot. I have a ton of books on mine AND a three-gallon fish tank, and it's still holding steady." —Joy Houston

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99 (also available in black).

    28. A glass globe floor lamp for ditching the lighting you've been using since college in favor of a more modern look. People will think you're *brilliant* before they even learn how much you saved.

    If you get a smart outlet ($16.99 on Amazon), this is compatible with Alexa, Google Home Assistant, or Apple HomeKit!

    Promising review: "What a great price and quality. It’s very similar to the West Elm version, but it’s $100 cheaper. It's so, so worth it." —lory

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in three colors).

    29. A mirrored end table, because this won't reflect how much you spent. Dare I say, guests will think you're the next Joanna Gaines. Just smile and nod.


    It comes with three drawers!

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful piece. I am so pleased with my purchases with this company. It looks very elegant and sophisticated. This accent piece really works in almost any room and gives it a modern yet classic edge." —Laura Klein

    Get it from Amazon for $142+ (available in eight finishes).

    30. A vinyl storage table that'll double as a trendy accent piece when you fill it with your impressive collection. I do believe the money you save when you don't need to buy more decor will be *music to your ears*.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "I am very happy that I bought this! I had been looking for a record stand for awhile, but they are all very expensive. This is very reasonably priced and can hold quite a few records." —Loloo97

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $89 (available in three colors).
