31 Practical Yet Gorgeous Things From Wayfair You’ll Probably Feel Smart For Owning
There's only one thing better than buying cute stuff for your house, and that's buying cute stuff for your house that actually does something.

1. A mid-century-style velvet bench that flips open, revealing lots of hidden space to store all of your extremely modern stuff.
2. A set of three versatile geometric nesting tables with faux marble surfaces and gold-tone steel bases, so you can reorganize your living room depending on your needs — use them in different parts of the room when you're having guests over for cocktails, stow them away when you're cleaning, or set them up together to create one big coffee table, Voltron-style.
3. An ultra-modern, sculptural coat rack that basically just looks like a work of art, but can also hold 5 pounds of weight on each flip-down hook.
4. A reclaimed wood coffee table with two large cubbies, so you can have the midcentury modern design touches you love, like hairpin legs, and the open storage space you desperately need.
5. A set of four stainless-steel-and-glass kitchen canisters that are way chicer than Tupperware, sandwich bags, old yogurt containers, or whatever else you're currently using to store your bulk foods.
6. Or a set of three textured ceramic kitchen canisters with wooden lids, so you can finally give your ground coffee the luxe home it deserves.
7. A sleek, futuristic-looking bread box, because you have to admit it — you've been baking bread for over a year now, and you have still not figured out the correct place to store it (besides your mouth).
8. A tufted mid-century arm chair with solid wood legs and an extra-broad seat, so everyone can sit comfortably — the upright-sitters, the crisscrossers, and yes, even the one-legs-hanging-over-one-of-the-arm-ers (you weirdos).
9. A square-arm velvet sleeper sofa that folds down into a bed, so you don't have to choose between midcentury glam and making your mom sleep on the floor when she visits.
10. A whimsical, monochromatic house-shaped tissue box, because nothing will ruin your careful design scheme like a random Kleenex box with Spider-Man on it (NOT that there is anything wrong with Spider-Man).
11. A simple, modern farmhouse storage ottoman, so you can solve your "where do I put my feet?" and "where do I put my 49 couch-blankets?" problems at the same time.
12. An iron etagere bookcase with a unique triangular shelf that's perfect for showcasing vinyl, stacking up books, or having your cat claim as their new bed.
13. A faux-weathered modern farmhouse end table with a drawer, cabinet space, and built-in USB ports and outlets, so you don't have to ruin your living room vibe with a bunch of very un-aesthetic cords.
14. A circular floating shelving unit with three asymmetrical wooden shelves, for Scandinavian design aficionados, or anyone who's just kind of over more typical floating shelves.
15. A rustic, three-level Z-frame shoe rack that can hold at least nine pairs of shoes, because it's much more stylish than your current option, "putting all your shoes in a big pile in the closet and then lying to yourself about how you'll organize them later."
16. A two-drawer wooden nightstand with midcentury styling and splayed legs, so you'll have someplace incredibly chic to store your retainer.
17. A set of three dangling, geometric mirrors that can be hung together or apart, to help brighten up your room, make it look larger, or just help you check for poppy seeds in your teeth (all worthy undertakings).
18. A Kelly Clarkson Home velvet wingback swivel chair with wheels, so you can combine "beautiful design" with "actually being able to move around your home office."
19. A slim, faux-distressed console table that looks French country-stylish and also has four working drawers, so you can stow away all the very important things in your life that are neither French nor stylish (looking at you, leash and doggy doo bags).
20. A two-piece set of ombre Le Creuset salt-and-pepper grinders, because they're basically pieces of art that ALSO season your food. Our ancient ancestors called that "witchcraft," but I call it "value."
21. A three-piece vanity set with a dresser, stool, and mirror, so you can actually enjoy getting ready in the morning, instead of hunching over the sink and accidentally knocking your eyebrow pencil down the drain.
22. A simple wood and steel console table that gives you space to display items without taking up a lot of room.
23. A dramatically arched floor lamp with adjustable height and a foot switch, so you can turn even the dankest, darkest rooms of your home into beautifully lit lil' sanctuaries.
24. A Novogratz industrial-chic tiered plant stand that can be mounted on the wall or sit on the floor—wherever your green bbs will thrive the most.
25. A velvet scalloped chair so you can always feel retro-glamorous, even if you are just sitting in it to fold some laundry.
26. A set of three two-tone woven seagrass baskets that bring a coastal, beachy vibe to any space. Use them as decor accents, to hold potted plants, to store all those dog toys that you keep stepping on. The possibilities are endless!
27. A column lamp with three levels of open storage, so you can totally transform any dark, cluttered corners of your house.
28. A minimalist Novogratz writing desk with deep open storage cubbies for all of your stuff, because you deserve to feel sleek and stylish, even if you can't KonMari to save your life.
29. A French country-esque pedestal table that will give your room a pop of color and a place to put your coffee. Win-win!
30. A sleek counter dining set with two stools and a pub table with three built-in shelves, so even the smallest studio apartment-dwellers can still have an elegant dinner spot.
31. A TV stand that combines midcentury design, contemporary wood finishes, and practical details like two closed cubbies and a hidden cable management area. It's the best of both worlds, as Hannah Montana used to say (yes, she was singing about a TV stand).
