    5. A set of mirrored trays that'll spruce up the coffee table you've been using since your college dorm days — adorn it with a candle, books, your TV remote, whatever! It's going to look absolutely fabulous., Amazon

    Promising review: "They are much larger than you expect, which is so rare on Amazon. They are the first mirrored item I’ve had delivered with the mirror intact. The gold has a slight worn look to it, which looks nice and I don’t mind because it’s not actively flaking. They already have little pads on the bottom to protect your furniture. Plus gold is super in right now ;) I already know everyone is going to compliment them." —Sean August Horvath

    Get it from Amazon for $41.88+ (available in five styles).

    6. A macrame swing for the corner of the room — just imagine how soothing it would be to curl up with a blanket and nap or read in there. Delightful.,

    Promising review: "Bought this for my 6-year-old's room makeover. She loves it and curls up in it most days. She piles in the pillows and blankets to make the ropes cozy. I had my dad, who built houses for a living, install it for me to make sure it was secure but I think as long as you use a stud finder and have a good screw driver, anyone can do this." —KrisSquared

    Get it from Amazon for $46.99.

    7. Wood floating shelves you'll find super simple to install so instead of wasting time reading instructions you can spend your day deciding what to put on display instead.

    Promising review: "Purchased these shelves to display our growing Game of Thrones Funko collection. The shelves were super easy to install and are really sturdy. We loved the color!

    Get them from Amazon for $22.94+ (available in three sizes).

    8. Temporary wallpaper that'll transform your living room into one you'd expect to see in a Wes Anderson film — which, IMO, is home decor goals.

    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed writer Mallory Mower has and loves her frame TV. She said: "This is honest and truly the best splurge I have ever made. It has massively upgraded the look in my living room. My husband loves the photography options and I love all the classical paintings – as someone who loves changing up my decor, being able to update the display images has been so fun. The quality is fantastic while watching movies and TV...but I'm pretty sure I love it as a piece of art in my home even more."

    Promising review: "We love our new frame TV. At first I was expecting to display my own photos but we really enjoy the high quality and high resolution photos that are available with the service and decided to continue our subscription. We tour different famous works and love the selection. The flat mount was easy to install and the design is sleek and smart. It makes our living space pop with color versus just having a normal TV." —Rich D

    Get it from Amazon for $597.99+ (available in six sizes, six styles, and with or without expert installation).

    11. A wooden beaded garland you can wrap around that *very* pricey candle you insisted you needed to really take your decor to the next level.,

    Promising review: "Love, love, love! It’s the perfect farmhouse accent! It’s versatile and very pretty. It’s not long enough to run my mantel length, but I’ve had several uses for it so far. It just brings pretty to any space you want to pop. It’s thick, but not too thick either, and the beads are smooth and well-made." —May@36

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    12. A unique bookshelf to put your favorites on display in a more artful way — finally somewhere appropriate to show off your Jane Austen collection.

    a walnut colored shelf with slanted shelves throughout

    Promising review: "What a gorgeous piece of practical and artistic furniture. I always seem to need bookshelves for my growing home library but didn’t want to just put a boxy bookcase against the limited wall space I have. This book tree is a fantastic solution. It allows me to display books in a unique manner I can easily find the book I need. It was not difficult to assemble and it took less than 20 minutes to have it installed." —Sunshine Mel

    Get it from Amazon for $95.99.

    13. A bouquet of dried pampas grass for a natural look you'll never tire of — great for anyone who is a newbie to decorating and fearful of overdoing it (ahem, me).,

    Get a 30-piece bouquet from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in two colors).

    14. A curtain of twinkle lights to make you feel like you're hanging out inside a magical fairyland. Who wouldn't want that?

    a reviewer's living room with twinkle lights hanging down the windows

    If it were up to me, I would leave my Christmas lights up inside my home all year long. These twinkle lights are a great way to create that look without being overtly holiday-themed. Tinker Bell would certainly approve!

    Promising review: "I saw a few pictures online of fairy lights with sheer curtains and loved the look. These lights in particular are perfect for what I was looking for. It gives off a warm, cozy glow and really adds a nice touch of oomph to the room." —NG

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    15. A bar cart you'll be able to put together faster than it takes you to shake up the perfect cocktail.

    a gold two tiered bar cart on wheels

    Promising review: "This cart is the perfect size and such a pretty color gold. It’s more of a matte color and not too shiny. I love that it has a wine rack underneath for additional storage. It was very easy to put together. I got the gold mirrored tray and copper mule mugs on Amazon as well." —Alison

    Get it from Amazon for $89.91+ (available in three styles).

    16. A chic cube-shaped candle to put every one all of your basic cylinder candles to shame — you might not even want to light this one, it'll look just as nice hangin' out on a decorative tray atop your coffee table.

    West Clay Company / Amazon

    West Clay Company is a small business that sells candles and other pieces of home decor. This beautifully designed candle smells like marshmallows, yum!

    Promising review: "This candle burns beautifully. The scent is fragrant, but not too strong. I purchased as a gift, and my friend loves it." —R Peters

    Get it from West Clay Company on Amazon Handmade for $19.97.

    17. A chic futon that'll look amazing in your living room but also create an extra place for your family members to sleep when they inevitably come visit for a weekend to see your new digs.


    Promising review: "Great price! Quality seems to be great too! Very stylish, I have already had so many compliments on it. I searched and searched for a decent used couch and came up with nothing good, I love that it’s brand new! It’s even longer and deeper than I hoped. Not disappointed. Easy to assemble, took me about an hour. It’s pretty heavy though! A couple pillows in the corners will be the perfect extra comfort. Doesn’t look like a futon at all, but that’s a nice feature to have if you need it. Great color selections. Time will tell if it spot cleans easily, but the material seems like it will." —Alexandra

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $295.80+ (available in nine colors).

    18. A sofa arm table that'll be your saving grace if you have a relative who is forever complaining the coffee table is *waaaaay* too far from the couch.

    Promising review: "I love this!!! It is extremely sturdy, and I can use it to place my drink on it with confidence that it won't fall! It's the perfect solution to not having enough space for an end table!!!" —Michelle B

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in three styles).

    19. A remote organizer, perfect for keeping your various remotes, clickers, channel changers (whatever you call it in your house) in check while looking chic.

    You're only human if you don't know where your TV remotes are... ever. This contraption is perfect for storing remotes, house phones (if ya' have one), and even your cell phone if you want to really focus on what you're watching.

    Promising review: "This remote control holder is the best I’ve ever owned. Not only is it elegant and attractive, it is nice and lightweight and has room for at least five remote controls, however depending on the thinness of the controllers, you could probably fit more in there. Since it basically just sits on a side table, I believe it’s made of quality material, and will last a very long time. It matched my decor perfectly, and looks exactly as pictured." —Nicole Cook

    Get it from Amazon for $20 (available in two colors).

    20. An art print that'll add a little *somethin' somethin'* to the bare walls of your living room and help you show off your personality a bit.

    21. A storage ottoman you can use to stow away things like throw blankets, shoes, books — whatever your heart desires! All that matters is that your home is about to look a lot more organized.

    Promising review: "I was very surprised by this bench. For the price, I figured it would be flimsy and/or cheap looking, but this thing is solid! You would never know it’s a fold-up bench once put together (which takes two seconds). My boyfriend and I are able to sit on it together with no worries. Awesome bench!!" —Caitlin W

    Get it from Amazon for $56.99+ (available in two colors).

    22. A beautifully designed table lamp – it'll look great and bring tons of light into your space so you can put off having Hyatts installed for just a *little* bit longer.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Mitzi

    I have this gorgeous lamp and am obsessed with it, TBH. It's *so* much larger than I anticipated it would be which was a delightful surprise. It really does add so much light to my living room and it looks fantastic with the walnut and brass end table from Burrow I've paired it with!

    Get it from Mitzi for $260 (available in three styles).

    23. A turntable that'll help bring music into your living room in an old school (but now super trendy) way while also adding in a conversational piece of decor.


    My husband has this record player and it's become such a beloved piece in our home. We love putting it on during dinner time and letting the music drift from the living room into the kitchen while we cook. Super soothing and gives you an excuse to start searching for all kinds of vinyl records to add to your collection. Note that you'll need to also pick up a pair of speakers to get the full experience.

    Promising review: "I've been collecting vinyl for about nine years now and finally upgraded from my Crosley (a great beginner turntable) to this system. The sound quality is to die for, and I am incredibly happy about my purchase! I paired this system with Edifier R1280T Powered Bookshelf Speakers — I am very satisfied with the sound output, and the setup between the system and speakers was incredibly easy (especially for someone who isn't incredibly tech savvy). Would recommend if you are looking for an upgrade from a 'basic' turntable and want to hear an improved quality of your records, but don't want to break the bank." —RK

    Get it from Amazon for $119+ (available in four styles).

    24. And an acrylic vinyl holder to store some of your favorite records while also showing anyone who sets foot in your living room what great taste in music you have. Excuse me while I go find my copy of Taylor Swift's Folklore album...


    Promising review: "This item is the perfect addition to my record storage! I can easily flip through my favorite records without causing any damage to them. At first I didn't believe this would be strong enough to flip through up to 50 records and have them hold on the acrylic end piece. I was very wrong! This item is sturdy and strong. I started off just buying just one to see if I would like it and ended up getting another almost immediately. I have many different storage options for my vinyl and this is absolutely my current favorite!" —Kohl

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in six styles).

    25. An open shelf bookcase that'll take no time at all to put up so you can get right back to color coordinating your books.

    the bookcase with long wooden shelves and metal pole accents

    Promising review: "This shelf is just what I wanted. After looking for quite some time, I settled on this unit. The packaging was great, very protective. Everything was in great shape because of the nice packing job. It went together really easily and the overall fit and finish and build quality is rock solid once you get all the screws tightened. Thanks for making such a quality piece of furniture!" —G. Mark Phillips

    Get it from Amazon for $99.46+ (available in four sizes).

    26. A soft-to-the-touch area rug featuring an array of neutral shades that'll look fantastic without disrupting your carefully curated color scheme

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Boutique Rugs

    Choosing rugs for an entire house is surprisingly really difficult! My husband and I debated for a while and finally settled on this beauty — we have no regrets! It was VERY heavy to carry up a small flight of stairs (that's on us) but mainly because it's more plush than it appears online. I had planned to get a rug pad for under it but didn't need one since it's already so comfortable and thick! It came in perfect condition and we couldn't be happier with the way it pulls together our living room.

    Get it from Boutique Rugs for $196+ (available in four sizes).

    27. An electric fireplace to create the ultimate cozy experience right inside your very own living room.


    Is there anything cozier than relaxing in front of a fireplace? Definitely not. Transform your living room into a makeshift ski lodge by bringing in this electric fireplace that actually generates heat. This is going on my wish list right nowwww.|

    Promising review: "Wish we had ordered years ago. We got tired of mess and work to build fires and we don't have natural gas. My spouse was concerned about the look of the flames and the view of the device and we were not able to see a live unit anywhere. Easy out-of-the-box setup. The flames looked very real." —John Collier

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99.

    28. A personalized block you can place on an end table or in your bookshelf for a subtle nod to your favorite Disney film.

    29. A rustic end table that'll look lovely whether you use it in your living room or place it next to your bed as a nightstand.

    the medium colored wood nightstand with a drawer open

    Promising review: "One of the easiest and simplest nightstands to put together and the quality of the stand is great for the price. The directions (picture and labels) are just so simple only took me 30 minutes to put together. I placed this in my bedroom where I have a low profile bed so the 21" height was perfect in my situation but it may not be for everyone." —Frank Anderson

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

    30. A wireless library light you can position over your collection of vintage books to bring Beauty and the Beast library vibes to your home. I can't think of anything more magical than that, TBH.,

    The portrait lights are AAA battery-operated and wireless so no need to fret about installation. It includes a remote so you can set the light to different brightnesses and schedule a timer for 15, 30, 60, or 120 minutes. Please note that some reviewers thought the gold was a little orange.

    Promising review: "This light is WAY better than others in the same price category. Very easy install, love the different color settings (warm or cool and full or half light), even has a timer. I am100% satisfied!" —Birkie

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in three colors).

    31. A media cabinet that'll function beautifully as a TV stand or a fancy place to store your records / place your record player. The brushed brass accents are quite lovely, don't you think?

    the black cabinet with brass legs and four cabinets throuhgout

    I recently moved into my first home and bought nearly all of my furniture from Article. It all comes 95% built (incredible) and is made with such high quality. Their customer service is downright jolly (can you believe it?) and the entire experience of shopping from them has been a 10/10.

    Promising review: "This is a gorgeous piece. We were so delighted when we opened the box. It's very sturdy and well made. Finishes are amazing. And it was fully assembled!! It was our first piece from Article and we'll be ordering more for sure!" —Audrey H.

    Get it from Article for $929 (available in two colors).
