    1. A chic, mid-century-inspired Novogratz convertible sofa, because "chic" and "convertible sofa" do actually belong in the same sentence.


    Promising review: "Super easy to put together and very stylish! Adds a little something extra to my very small one bedroom apartment. It's very firm, though, so if you prefer softer furniture, it may not be for you." —Target customer

    Price: $389.99 (available in three colors)

    2. A sleek, off-white table lamp that offers two options — traditional bulb light, or softer illumination from the base — so you can have mood lighting for every mood.

    The lamp, which has a shade and base both in off-white, and the base also illuminates

    Promising review: "It’s small but mighty. The two different light options are awesome. The lighting is warm and friendly. It arrived in perfect condition, and was so easy to put together. Love that the light bulb was included. You will love this lamp!" —Laura

    Price: $45

    3. A fluffy, oversized, cable knit throw pillow, for when you want to give your couch a stylish winter look and have something cozy to snuggle up with when it gets cold.

    The pillow, which has the same design and texture as a cable knit sweater

    Promising review: "LOVE this pillow! It is gorgeous, very soft and comfortable. Looks like I paid much more than $30!" —kp

    Price: $30 (available in four colors)

    4. A woodgrain-and-matte-white essential oil diffuser with automatic shut-off, so you can spend your time admiring its aesthetics, not trying to remember if you turned it off.

    The diffuser, which has a woodgrain bottom, white top, and looks like a teardrop vase

    Price: $27.99

    5. A woven grass bathroom wastebasket with a lid that provides an elegant way to stop looking at your weird bathroom trash (how did you use so many cotton swabs in one week?? WHAT WERE YOU DOING??).

    The woven wastebasket, which is made from strands of light brown and white fiber, and has a top with a small handle

    Promising review: "I waited for this to come back in stock and when it did, I ordered right away! It’s even better than I expected! There are similar ones out there and they’re all double the price! This is a steal! I love that it comes with a liner, and the lid makes it a must-have!" —Ash

    Price: $19.99

    6. A set of brightly colored blackout curtains, because no one should have to choose between having a cute room and getting a decent night's sleep.

    The curtains, which hang all the way to the floor

    Promising review: "I love these curtains for our baby girl’s nursery! The curtains are thick and they definitely block out the light! I couldn’t be happier, and the price was very reasonable." —Tiffany1989

    Price: $16.99+ (available in three sizes and seven colors)

    Price: $25

    9. A clean line, expandable bamboo spice rack that extends to give you a little more room for that extra bottle of cumin (or whatever else you want to use it to organize).

    Promising review: "I love this product! I used it to display my products for a pop-up shop for my small business! When I am not using it for events, I use it as a desk organizer to stack my acrylic paint tubes!" —Brooke

    10. A sleek bamboo desk organizer and Qi wireless charging station, so you can have a stylish place for everything and everything in its stylish place.

    Promising review: "This wireless charger works perfectly with my iPhone, and the mail slot is perfect for holding my iPad Mini while it charges (using one of the two extra USB ports on the back of the unit). The unit is sturdier than I expected, and the rubber feet keep it from sliding around." —krosenberg

    Price: $40

    The table in white, which has one large shelf area, and USB and traditional outlets under the rim of the tabletop

    Price: $17.99+ (available in three colors)

    13. A wooden hair styling station that will help you neatly organize your brushes, hair dryer and heat tools—oh yeah, and it's magnetized, so you can stick your bobby pins and hair ties directly to the side. All your (styling tool storage-related) dreams are now a reality!

    The caddy, which has three rounded holes on top for brushes, hair dryers, or heat tools, as well as three smaller trays in front for hair products, hair ties, scrunchies, etc

    Promising review: "Yay!!!! This works fantastic and it’s a gorgeous wood color. Its front panel is magnetic, too!!!" —KenzBZN

    Promising review: "I love this piece! My record player and receiver fit perfectly in the center shelves (about 15" wide), while the cabinets hold 12" vinyl on one shelf and 7" or cassettes on the other. TV sits on top. It comes with very easy and clear building instructions, and I was able to do this alone in about an hour. Beautiful quality." —helenalux

    Price: $230+ (available in four colors)

    15. A set of round, faux marble finish nesting tables, so you can stack them when you need to save some room, and spread them out when it's time to display all your extremely glam belongings.

    The two tables, both of which have a light gray marble-look rounded top and four wood legs, and one of which is shorter than the other

    Promising review: "Great nesting tables that I am using as a coffee table set up. The grey marbling is darker than it is in the online photo (I like the contrast). Set up was SO easy! These are also lightweight and easy to move, although the smaller table is a little less stable since the legs/base is not as wide. Great price for what I needed." —Dani

    Price: $63.99

    16. A minimalist, terrazzo-finish toothbrush holder with two separate compartments, for roommates who love to hang out (but don't want their toothbrushes to do the same).

    Promising review: "Beautiful! Expensive-looking and big enough for all of our toothbrushes and razors." —cconeill

    Price: $12.99

    17. A matte cream-colored 3-quart slow cooker, because stylish appliances produce tastier foods (okay, fine, they don't — but they're great to look at while you're waiting for your stew to finish cooking).

    The slow cookers, which has a matter, cream body, and black handles and accents

    Promising review: "It looks so sleek in design. Perfect for dips or dinners for two." —Valdin

    Price: $15.99 (originally $17.99)

    The clock, which is round, with a white, numberless face, and a gold tone outer area

    Promising review: "This is about as good as it gets for a $25 clock. It looks a lot more expensive. It's a really fun statement piece in my entryway and looks nice up close." —mercedesnm

    Price: $25

    19. A brass tripod floor lamp, for a look that combines great style and even greater stability.

    The pour-over coffee maker, which is a large glass carafe with a cork panel in the middle so that you can hold it, and a mesh filter that fits into the funnel-shaped top

    Promising review: "Purchased as a gift for someone who wanted to venture into pour-over coffee, and he has had it for over a week now. He likes it because it's easy to use, easy to clean, and his coffee tastes great. I like it because it is more visually pleasing than his old basic coffee maker, and easy to put anywhere now that it doesn't need to be near an outlet. He says this will now be his everyday use coffee maker." —AforAwesome

    Price: $19.99

    21. A faux leather storage ottoman, because whenever you get the chance make a design statement that will also solve your living room clutter problem, you should take it.

    Price: $14.99

    24. A metal-and-wood leaning ladder bookcase, because you need a lot of storage options, and this shelf provides them all — each shelf is a slightly different size, and the bookcase takes up very little floor space.

    The bookshelf, which has 5 levels, which get smaller as they get closer to the top, and which has wooden shelves and two metal sides

    Promising review: "This is the shelf you are looking for! The wood is very high quality, it's beautiful, and the shelf is sturdy. It looks way more expensive than it actually is. Easy to put together — took me 20 or so minutes to do it myself. Truly, this is the best deal out there for leaning ladder shelves, look no further!" —sabina

    Price: $100 (available in three colors)

    25. An industrial-chic mug holder with space for all your creamers and sweeteners, so you're always ready for an impromptu brunch (yes, eating yogurt alone ~absolutely~ counts as brunch).

    Four metal bars installed on a wall, each with four hooks to hold mugs, plus two small hanging baskets to hold spices

    Price: $28.97

    26. A black steel freestanding towel rack, because your towels will dry faster when you drape them on this stylish piece than they will when you cram them onto your wall-mounted rack.


    Promising review: "Easy to assemble, good quality. I know this is for towels, but as an esthetician, I wanted something for my clients to hang their clothes on and a place to put their shoes in my treatment room. So it’s versatile as well!" —pretty neat

    Price: $49.99

    27. A white-and-gold geometric planter, so you can maximize your wall space and show off your little green buddies in style.

    The planter, which is made of white ceramic in an angular, geometric shape, with gold tone wire wrapped around it and providing a handle to hang from the wall

    Price: $13

    28. A geometric cage desk lamp with a faux marble base, for times when only a totally unique lighting look that illuminates the room and makes an intriguing design statement will do.

    The lamp, which has a circular faux marble base, and a geometric brass-tone cage as a shade, leaving the bulb visible

    Promising review: "This lamp is quality. The marble base is heavy, not cheap plastic. The brass surrounding part is a solid metal. It doesn't feel or look cheap. I also like that it has a on/off switch. I added a decorative Edison style bulb and it fit perfectly in our mid-century modern bar area." —Toddlermom

    Price: $35+ (available with or without bulb)

    29. A green cut-glass dispenser for your hand soap, lotions, or any nonfood liquid that could benefit from some sharp vintage style.

    Promising review: "It’s the cutest mirror with a very nice real wood pine shelf. I used it in my bathroom renovation and I am obsessed — I’m amazed more people are not talking about this. I searched high and low for something this style and everything else is $100+. It’s well-priced for what it is—get it before people find this hidden gem." —Jessica M.

    Price: $59.99 (originally $74.99)

    31. A gold-finish leaf tray you could use to hold basically anything: bar soap, jewelry, paper clips, your hopes and dreams...

    The tray, which is slightly rounded, gold-toned, and shaped like a leaf

    Promising review: "It’s a really cute tray that can be used in the bathroom, on a night stand, or even in the office." —essie
