    26 Things That'll Help Make Your Living Room *Extra* Cozy

    Apologies to your Friday night plans, because you're never going to want to sit in anyone else's living room again.

Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them.

    Whether you're a homebody or love to entertain, it's essential that you have the comfiest living room EVER.


    With a few purchases, you can upgrade your living from drab to fab!

    1. A macrame swing that'll amp up your already super-cool living room's bohemian aesthetic.


    OK, I want one of these and I want it NOW. You can hang this swing indoors or outdoors, but I officially have my heart set on putting it up in a quiet corner in my living room to create the ultimate reading nook.

    Promising review: "I bought one of these...and then bought two more. I have these hanging in my living room, and they are perfect. You can hang them from a single hook or from two separate hooks. There are two rings. 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. Maybe just promotional pricing since it's a new product, but 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 $59.99.

    2. A hand-tufted geometric rug, so when you have too many friends over to watch an award show, the person stuck squatting on the floor can still be comfy.


    What? Like you've never been stuck sitting on the floor after the prime spots on the couch run out? Make sure your always-late friend is still comfortable when they come over by getting this soft rug for your living room.

    Get it from Walmart for $229+ (available in two sizes).

    3. Or a super soft rug your guests will prefer to sit on instead of your couch.


    When I visit my parents, I spend 95% of the time laying on the floor with my dog. Don't give up that precious cuddle time just because you only have a wood floor! Bring this plush rug into your life ASAP.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in three sizes and in 14 styles).

    4. A chunky throw blanket that'll keep you warm and make you feel like you're cuddling with a sheep on your couch.

    ChunkyWoolStudio / Etsy

    In my opinion, you can never have too many throw blankets. I've had my eye on this one for quite some time now — it's trendy and looks like you could hibernate in it for DAYS. It's entirely made of wool, so you know it'll feel like hugging a cloud.

    Get it from ChunkyWoolStudio on Etsy for $44.79+ (available in 26 sizes and 12 colors).

    5. And a basket to keep all of your blankets organized and prevent your living room from looking like there's a teenage slumber party in progress.


    You can also use this basket to keep your kiddo's toys out of the way in the living room, but still easily accessible to keep them entertained while you're watching The Real Housewives.

    Promising review: "It's perfect. I have a 7-month-old and needless to say there are blankets and toys EVERYWHERE. So I use my basket to try and keep some semblance of order in my living room. It works great and is also nice for a quick clean when company comes over. I ordered another and keep it under the table with burp cloths, bibs, and muslin wraps that we perpetually need within reach. It definitely holds more than I thought it would." —Jenn

    Get it from Amazon for $15.87+ (available in three styles).

    6. Wallpaper that'll transform your plain old walls into something so magical you'll never want to leave your living room.


    You can spice up your living room with a simple sheet of wallpaper — who woulda thought? Whether you want to bring a tropical feel into your room or you prefer something a bit more abstract, Anthropologie has a ton of whimsical options that are sure to catch your eye.

    Get it from Anthropologie: floral print for $148 or abstract print for $138

    7. A velvet accent armchair to glam up even the most boring of rooms and make you feel bad and boujee in the process.

    Amazon, Walmart

    Can't you just picture sitting back in this freakin' fabulous chair while sipping on a chilled glass of champagne? Ugh, the dream.

    Promising review for the chair on the left: "Wow. I have nothing but good things to say about this chair. It IS heavy, though, and getting it upstairs took some strong guys. It's very well-made and sturdy but looks sort of delicate. The pink is a muted, soft pink and is ever so pretty. I love the velvet aspect as it feels so glamorous. The brass arms and legs give it an elegant feel and look. It's super comfortable to sit in and has become my favorite chair to sit in in my bedroom. I'm really crazy about Rivet stuff in general as it's functional and pretty." —imsocrazy

    Get it from Amazon for $549 (available in dusty rose and navy) or a similar chair from Walmart for $129+ (available in four colors).

    8. A gorgeous lantern you can fill with candles for the ultimate living room ambiance.


    Is there anything better than sitting by the glow of candles while you're reading a book or listening to your favorite record? Ah, this just sounds so relaxing. Take that candlelight to the next level by placing them inside one of these gorgeous lanterns.

    Get it from Anthropologie for $52+ (available in size S–L).

    9. A couch that is VERY reasonably priced and sofa-king comfortable, you'll easily be able to spend hours rewatching Game of Thrones., Amazon

    What's a living room without the perfect cozy couch to spend hours and hours on? This one is inexpensive, comes in a bunch of colors, and is sure to become your new fave spot to chill.

    Promising review: "I went out on a limb and bought this before there were any product reviews. I needed a small chaise sectional for my den and this was the perfect size. It offers a midcentury-ish style while still providing comfort requisite for a den (my living room couch is pure mid-century art and not comfy for sitting, haha). The couch was delivered without incident or damage and it was quite easy to put the legs on (note that there is one non-tapered leg...that one goes under the middle of the couch). The cushions are quite comfy — firm but cushy. The hubs sit on it for a few hours each night and so far, no craters or sags in the cushions at all. The fabric is quite smooth to the touch but has a slightly heathered or tweedy look to it. Overall, I am so pleased with this couch and the price I paid was a steal." —Heather Coburn-Schill

    Get it from Amazon for $249+ (available as a chair, loveseat, sofa, sofa bed, and sectional, and in four colors).

    10. A soothing candle inspired by cozy nights at home, perfect for staying lit while you stay in on a Friday night.

    Evil Queen

    This candle was literally built for snuggling at home on your couch! Scented with clove, incense, sandalwood, amber, patchouli, birch tar, saffron, and cotton, this candle is essentially what wrapping yourself in your favorite sweater would smell like. I feel warm and fuzzy inside just talking about it.

    Get it from Evil Queen for $20 (also available as a double-wick)

    11. Or a Homesick candle, in case you recently moved and want to make your new living room feel familiar.


    Promising review: "I got this as a surprise for my boyfriend. He moved to my state from Texas for college. I wasn't sure about how it would smell but I figured even if he wasn't a fan it would be neat as a decoration for his room. When I surprised him with the candle and he smelled it, he actually got very emotional and started crying because he said the smell instantly brought back so many memories of home." —Bailey K

    Get it from Amazon for $30 (available in all 50 states).

    12. A set of metal planters you can hang on the wall that are so jaw-droppingly beautiful, anyone who visits your home is sure to ~dig~ them.

    stylecharming / Etsy

    I'm pretty sure my husband would cry if I surprised him with these. If you love indoor plants but are constantly struggling to find the perfect place for them in your living room, this is an incredibly gorgeous solution.

    Get it from stylecharming on Etsy for $33.99+ (available in three sizes and four colors).

    13. A pair of blackout curtains, so you'll never have to worry about that annoying glare the sun projects onto the TV during a mid-day movie marathon., Amazon

    Blackout curtains aren't just for your bedroom! You can easily use them in your living room, too. There's nothing more irritating than being snowed in and trying to watch your favorite episode of How I Met Your Mother when the sun suddenly decides to pop up and rudely ruin your view of the television. NEVER AGAIN with these curtains.

    Promising review: "The curtains are heavy, hang well on the rod, and appear to be made of great quality fabric and quality workmanship. You will need a metal rod for use with these panels as they are quite heavy. Love that they will help keep the room from being so cold in the wintertime. Fantastic value!" —Ashlynn

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95+ (available in seven sizes and 17 colors).

    14. A barrel chair you can curl up in like a cat and feel surrounded by warmth.


    This chair is accented with classy nail heads and will make for the perfect addition to your living room. Doesn't it just look like the best chair to snuggle up in and read a book from cover-to-cover?

    Get it from Walmart for $282.42 (available in five colors).

    15. A leather recliner that'll not only give you an identical massage to the one you get while getting a pedicure, but will also swivel 360 degrees!


    Want to add a little luxury to your living room? Well, let me introduce you to this chair. It is soft but sturdy, has two cup holders, storage bags to hold magazines, and a fantastic heating/massaging feature. Say "yes" to comfort, my friends.

    Promising review: "This is a great chair for the price and offers so many great bonus features. The heat and massage is wonderful for middle of the night feedings with my infant. It’s slim and fits well in my space. The cup holders are so convenient. This is a great chair for our nursery!" —Chelsie Zandstra

    Get it from Amazon for $219.99+ (available in five colors and styles).

    16. A velvet throw pillow, so you can feel fun and fancy-free every time you flop down on your couch for a Netflix marathon.


    Have you ever actually taken the time to rub your face against a luxurious velvet pillow? Once you bring this accent piece to your couch or bed, you'll never want to lie on anything else.

    Promising review: "Slate blue is one of my favorite colors, so this pillow fits the bill in that regard. The pillow arrived sealed in its own plastic case separate from the pillow case. I put the throw pillow inside the pillow case, zipped it up, and threw it on the couch. It's very nice. In person, the pillow looks a bit smaller than I imagined. As my wife observed, it makes a good lower back lumbar support pillow. If you're looking for a throw pillow that is not overwhelming in size and slate blue complements your color scheme, I can give this the highest recommendation." —M. Jeffrey McMahon

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in two sizes and four colors).

    17. Or a magical reversible pillow with none other than Jeff Goldblum's face on it, for a living room decoration that's as smooth as his jazz album.


    This fantastic pillow will let you live out your Jeff Goldblum fantasies (don't be shy, we all love him), but then, with a swift hand motion, transform it back into a regular pillow. You can also get it with a unicorn or Nicholas Cage design.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this pillow. I fall asleep with him every night and it makes me sleep so much better with nick by my side. I love the sequins. My family tells me my obsession with him is to much and unhealthy. So when I have company I just flip it back to the red side. He’s my dirty little secret and that just makes it even better. I love it so much. Best purchase I’ve ever made." —Your mommy

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 26 styles).

    18. An illustrated coffee table book that feels like a love letter to books, perfect for adding to your accent table to make your living room feel extra homey.


    Promising review: "The illustrations are what sold me on it to begin with but now that I have it in my hands, I love browsing through all the notes about bookstores and bookstore cats and libraries and groupings of different kinds of book. If you're a true Bibliophile, you must have this book in your library. Oh, but best leave it out on the coffee table so you can open it at random and just enjoy." —Judy Reeves

    Get it from Amazon for $16.96.

    19. And this wooden coffee table, so you have a place to display those heartwarming books and soothing candles of yours., Amazon

    This simple wooden coffee table will pull your entire cozy aesthetic together. It features a warm-colored pine wood and has multiple shelves for decor.

    Promising review: "I’ve been browsing industrial-style coffee tables for months and I finally decided on this one after MUCH scouring of furniture stores, catalogs, and all over the internet. My first priority was style, I was specifically looking for a wood and metal mix with just a little edge to it. I had it narrowed down to three pretty similar looking contenders, but I chose this one because it was the only one made of real wood, no MDF, veneer, or other imposters. It was a great price, arrived in perfect shape, easily assembled, and looks exactly as I hoped. Very sturdy and solid, no cheap ultra thin metal or loose wobbling." —Prity_Kittie

    Get it from Amazon for $102.07 (also available as an end table, sofa table, and dining table).

    20. Speckled votives that'll have you singing "these are a few of my favoooorite things."


    It's amazing what a well-placed votive can do for your living room. Make yourself a cup of cocoa, plop some tea lights into those bad boys, and have yourself a NIGHT.

    Get a set of two from Walmart for $12.

    21. A lamp that recreates the feeling of natural sunlight, so you can fight those winter blues without having to take a tropical vacation.


    Promising review: "I love this lamp, it is the second one I ordered. It gives off sunlight like light so if you struggle on days where you don't get enough sunlight to cheer you up, sit under this lamp. I also like the adjustable neck, I have this one next to my bed so I adjust it to face the book, but if I am watching TV I adjust it back so less light shines out toward the TV." —rebekah

    Get it from Amazon for $72.99 (available in two colors).

    22. A memory-foam chair that's so comfortable, your furry friends will happily join you for a snuggle sesh.,

    This seat is essentially a bean bag chair that doesn't have beans — it is made with durable foam stuffing and is encased in velvety suede. It's also lightweight, so you can move it from room to room as needed. It also seems to be a big hit with pets. :)

    Promising review: "At first it looked way too small, but if you fluff it up (or kick the crap out of it) the foam pieces inside will break up and expand to fill out the bag. It is comfy to sit in, supports the weight of an adult, doesn't make a lot of noise (it is foam, not Styrofoam), and doesn't get hot (fabric breaths nicely, it isn't like old plastic/vinyl ones from decades ago). I'm going to get another one or two for the living room." —M Chateau

    Get it from Amazon for $80 (available in 15 colors).

    23. Or a plush floor pillow, for a seating option that'll look classy but still serve its ultra comfortable purpose.


    Promising review: "This floor pillow is absolutely adorable! It's the perfect size to throw in the corner and use as an extra seat when guests come over. The velvet is super soft and the blush pink color looks great with the rest of my decor. It's actually a little bigger than it seems in the picture — thick enough to provide lots of cushion for someone sitting on it. Overall, great value. I wish it came in more colors!" —decordiva

    Get it from Walmart for $34.

    24. A professionally framed gallery wall, so everyone who visits your home will be convinced you have an ~eye for design~.


    I got married last year and can honestly tell you I haven't printed a single photo from the "best day of my life" (gags). It wasn't until I discovered Framebridge that I even considered doing something with the pics! All you have to do is upload your photos, choose your format and frames, and BOOM! The gallery wall arrives with a guide, so you can decorate stress-free.

    Get this gallery wall from Framebridge for $549 (available in three frame styles). And check out more gallery wall options.

    25. A mermaid tail blanket you'll want to make ~part of your world~.

    Promising review: "Love it! I researched many blankets before settling on this one, and I'm so glad I did. Very soft and warm. I'm picky about the texture of fabrics, I was afraid of getting something that felt cheap or like yarn; this material doesn't feel like either of those. No weird smells either, so you can cuddle up as soon as it arrives. Small opening at the bottom, but not enough to be able to put your legs through and walk around, yet small enough to keep your feet warm. Also, I'm 5'2" and I can wear this blanket and cover most of my arms at the same time, but it doesn't reach my shoulders." —Katharina Harig

    Get it from Amazon for $12.85+ (available in adult and child sizes and in five colors).

    26. And a fake fireplace can actually add warmth to your living room, because who WOULDN'T want that!?

    Just like in those festive Hallmark Christmas movies, you too can romantically place yourself in front of a blazing fire. Except the fire is 3D and not real at all. Regardless, it is sure to set the mood for being cozy!

    Promising review: "This is a cute little electric stove. Make sure that you check out the measurements before you order. I bought it for my utility room in the basement, and it gives the room a lovely glow and cozy warmth. I also love the remote control. You can use the 'fire' without the heat if you choose. The knob on the door is super cute, and when you open the glass door, you can see the thermostat and the other digital numbers that tell you the temperature, the time setting (how long do you want it to run), and the flame intensity. I chose this particular stove because of the glass sides. I thought that was prettier to see the flame by three sides." —J.P.

    Get it from Amazon for $189.99+ (available in four styles).

    Are you going to spend the rest of the year lounging in your cozy living room?
