    Note: you will need separate hanging hardware to ensure your swing is safe and secure.

    Promising review: "We absolutely love this chair hammock! We had to order hanging hardware separately, but it is hanging in my son's bedroom and he is in it constantly. Reading, napping, playing games. Fantastic purchase!" —Kurt from Pocatello

    Price: $45.76 (available in five styles)

    2. A lil' fan that'll sit on your desk and help you fight the unpredictable temperatures of your apartment.

    an off white, small, retro-looking fan sitting on top of shelving unit

    Promising review: "It truly is vintage-looking right down to the color. I turned it on high and I was happily surprised its not as loud as I thought it would be...even better!"—Sandra from Dewey, AZ

    Price: $39.44

    3. A trio of stands (from Novogratz) to make sure each and every one of your plant babies has a place of their own.

    a one-piece plant stand with three marble platforms spread out for potted plants to sit on top of

    Promising review: "I love this piece. It is a perfect mid-century modern plant stand. I had been looking for months for something unique like this and finally found it on Wayfair. It’s a great price. If it were real marble it would be way more expensive. Easy assembly. I highly recommend and may purchase another for my daughter." —Kathy

    Price: $93.99

    4. A three-shelf organizer that'll conveniently fit over your toilet for a lovely place to put your candles and tissue box.

    a thin metal shelving unit with three shelves that fit over and around a toilet

    Promising review: "Fits perfectly in my tiny bathroom. There was a lot to assemble but the instructions are simple and I was able to complete it in 20 minutes." —Candace

    Price: $26.99

    5. An end table you can place next to your bed to store your multiple chargers, journal, and other odds 'n' ends.

    a light blue end table with two drawers and a bottom shelf

    Promising review: "I absolute love these tables. Great sale price for the value. I purchased one for each side of the bed. Easy to put together by myself. Nice materials. Well-made. I needed good height with my sleigh bed that has both a pillow top mattress and a 4-inch memory foam topper. I like the blend with my antique dark furniture. Adds modernization to the room. I am having glass tops made because metal items easily leave marks on the finish. Definitely need to always use coasters too. Love the extra shelf at bottom for viewable items." —Jenna from Panama City, FL

    Price: $133.99 (originally $219, available in six styles)

    6. Tabletop cereal dispensers that'll make grabbing your morning breakfast a breeze — and likely become a conversation-starter for anyone who visits your home.

    two plastic cannisters filled with cereal placed into a black contraption that'll let you dispense a standard size portion. There's also a crumb collecting tray underneath

    Promising review: "This is listed as a cereal dispenser - but we purchased it for a cat and dog food dispenser. What a GREAT PRODUCT. This lovely piece of equipment sits on our kitchen cabinet and holds/dispenses our cat and dog dry food each day. No more lifting heavy bags all the time. Fill up the containers once and you have a week or two of ease. Just place your pet dish under the spout, turn the wheel and the dish fills up. Looks good and fun to turn the dials." —Jennifer from Greensboro, NC

    Price: $38.99 (originally $68, available in three styles)

    7. A barrel chair you'll pat yourself on the back for buying the next time a storm rolls in and you're looking for a cozy place to post-up and read a book.

    Wayfair / Marie from VA

    Price: $107.32 for two (available in five sizes and three finishes)

    9. Thermal blackout curtains to keep the summer heat from sneaking into your home or to help you *finally* get some much-needed shut-eye.

    Wayfair / Lisa from Sedalia, MO

    Promising review: "These drapes are unlined, yet they really do block the light! I got them in the dark gray and am pretty impressed with the fabric. They are polyester, but have a matte, almost suede-ish finish, are not shiny, and have a nice, heavy feel. They certainly turned out better than I expected for the price I paid! Pros: good fabric, color, functionality." —sammamish, WA

    Promising review: "I can’t say enough how much I love these lamps. They go great in my new home in which I had the walls painted gray!!! These lamps really make my living room look so elegant. They were a breeze to assemble which for me was a huge plus. I bought two lamps to go on either side of my sofa, but honestly having just one light on puts out enough light for the entire room!!! I definitely recommend these to anyone looking for nontraditional end table lighting!!!!!" —Adrienne from Jonesboro, AR

    Price: $60.99 (originally $69.99, available in six styles)

    12. Chevron wallpaper that'll help you finally recreate the accent wall you've been saving to your home decor Pinterest board over and over again.

    14. A Papasan chair that'll likely become your favorite place to unwind — who wouldn't want to feel like they're a baby bird cuddled safely away in a nest? Sounds good to me.

I bought one for my patio which worked out perfectly I will be purchasing two more one for my son's room one for my living room. The color is bright and the materials are durable. I'm very pleased with my purchase!" —Isaac from Los Angeles, CA

The material seems like it is going to be stiff and uncomfortable, but after laying it out we soon found it actually has a nice cushion to it. Our dog loves it and so do we!" —Taylor from Knoxville, TV
