    35 Stylish Pieces Of Furniture From Walmart That Only Look Expensive

    It turns out cute AND affordable — really, everything is under $500 — can go together!

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. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A vintage sleeper sofa that will make you feel so fancy with its Victorian-style legs and tufted, velour upholstery that I expect you to start having your friends address you as, your majesty.


    Many reviewers mention that it comfortably fits one person, but two people can be a tight squeeze.

    Promising review: "I mulled over picking a couch for this room for months! I had a sofas on my list ranging up to $1,600. I am SO pleased with this purchase! I've had it four months. It is beautiful, sturdy, good quality, and many times, a conversation piece! We use it in our sitting room, so it gets used a couple hours 3-4 times a week (plus anytime we make a fire). It still has the same sturdiness and look it did the day it arrived. It's not uncomfortable but VERY firm. I love a good firm sofa. This couch should not be as inexpensive as it is! Do yourself a favor and buy'll be so happy with it even if 'cheaper' items aren't your thing." —Sarah

    Price: $415+ (available in five colors)

    2. A simple end table for adding some easy storage in your living room. The traditional style makes it perfect for all types of home aesthetics.


    Price: $79 (available in two colors)

    3. An oval mirror with a subtle scalloped detailing around the edges because bathrooms *can* (and deserve to) feel elegant.


    Price: $96.88

    4. A double-door cabinet with shelves so you can display all your cool items on one side, and hide everything you don't want people to see on the other. It's all about balance.


    Price: $299

    5. A canopy bed frame that'll trick you into thinking you're on vacation at a fancy resort even though you're cozied up right in your bedroom — which doesn't sound too bad, tbh.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this bed. It's surprisingly stronger than what I thought it would be. I love that it has rods on the base so you can just use the mattress. Otherwise it would be a high climb into bed. But you can still use a boxspring if you want. It is time consuming to put together. But the instructions are easy to follow and understand. Would recommend having two people to put it together, but one could do it by themselves if they had to. Two people makes it easier to hold poles up while bolting into place. Great buy for a good price." —cris

    Price: $109+ (available in sizes twin, queen, king and three colors)

    6. A multipurpose kitchen cart to display your finest wines and give you extra space for all that food prepping you're going to start doing thanks to this!


    Promising review: "I have two of these and bought them specifically to help free up some of the cabinet space in my kitchen and to store wine. It is a solid, quality piece of furniture and adds a nice industrial-rustic quality to the space. The finish on both the wood and metal pieces are smooth. Although the feet are circular, they are not wheels and do not move. The bottoms of the feet are actually sufficiently flat, making for a stable stand. It was quite easy to put together, taking less than 25 minutes. All-in-all, it's a great design and I couldn't be happier with it." —HoustonStrong

    Price: $109

    7. A barrel accent chair you can only sit in if you're in a classy robe by the fireplace. I am sorry, those are the rules.


    Price: $349 (available in five colors)

    8. A mid-mod coffee table that can partially lift up so you never have to leave the couch (except to answer the door to get your food delivery, of course).


    You can also use the lift top and cubby to store all your living room items.

    Promising review: "I ordered the entire mid century modern furniture line, but especially appreciate this lift top coffee table. The function is outstanding. My family uses the lift top to eat and for laptop work. The design is solid and sophisticated. It came fully assembled aside from the legs, and was packaged well. Great value; great find!" —Sara

    Price: $341.52

    9. A ladder shelf for holding books, frames, knick knacks, and other things that don't have a set home, until now!


    Promising review: "This fits into my small studio wonderfully, and now holds my printer and technical items, along with tons of art supplies. And the best news is the tiny bit of floor space it takes up. Plus it looks good! It was relatively easy to set up, despite not-so-simple diagrams. As a retired forms designer, I was itching to redesign and simplify the directions. But love the product, and would buy it again." —CatWoman

    Price: $77.63+ (available in four colors)

    10. A ~dreamy~ metal headboard that'll, without a doubt, be your bedroom's statement piece.


    Price: $126.39+ (available in sizes twin, full, queen and four colors)

    11. A modern farmhouse cabinet with a sliding barn door (!!!) because you don't have to sacrifice style in the name of storage.


    Promising review: "This is a perfect fit for my kitchen/eating area! Although it took a while because it's heavy, the assembly instructions were flawless and easy to follow. I put it together myself and I'm not too handy. It's a pretty piece of furniture and it's very sturdy. Overall I'm very happy with it!" —chichi13

    Price: $219

    12. A headboard guaranteed to make you feel so fancy with its channel-tufted design. Honestly, I now expect you to start having your friends address you as, your majesty.


    Price: $299 (available in sizes full-king and three colors)

    13. A no-frills entertainment stand you can easily style up with baskets and other decor.


    Price: $49 (available in two colors).

    14. A luxurious rose gold vanity set that'll maybe, just maybe, make you *want* to get up and get ready for the day.


    Price: $234

    15. A set of two barstools that you can DIY to match your kitchen (we love to paint!) or leave as is for a rustic touch.


    Promising review: "I am very happy with these stools! They were quite simple to assemble with the tools provided — it took me less than 30 minutes. They are solid wood, very sturdy, and they look great at my kitchen breakfast bar. The seats are wide enough to be comfortable. You just can't beat these stools for the price! I saw them on other sites for $50 each and you had to pay shipping on those, too. The stools arrived a week before the estimated delivery. —DavenportJP

    Price: $58.46+ (available in three sizes)

    16. A sleek, statement-making credenza with adjustable shelves and ample storage that will have all your guests asking where you got it.


    Promising review: "I thought I would have to spend $500+ on something that would satisfy my needs, but not really the look I wanted. I was thrilled when I came across this credenza for far less than $500. I am a 50-year-old woman and put this together by myself in much less time than other projects I've tackled. This credenza is very sturdy and offers a lot of useful storage space for the size. I love the clean, simple look that blends well with a large wood daybed and brass and glass desk I have in the same room. If you are looking for a very functional piece of furniture at an extremely low price, don't hesitate to take a chance with this. It will not disappoint!!" —Beth

    Price: $179.98

    17. A stylish accent chair because the couch shouldn't be the only thing in the living room getting all the attention.


    Promising review: "I have been on the hunt for a gorgeous accent chair and was so excited when I saw this one by the Novogratz! They've long been on the top of my list of my favorite designers. I honestly think it looks so much more expensive that it really is. The fabric is high quality and the finish of the wood is beautiful. It's the perfect mid-century accent chair for my bedroom!" —Leigh

    Price: $149+ (available in two colors)

    18. A cute lil' outdoor bistro set that's reason enough to cook a quaint summer meal and eat by candlelight. Dinner is at your house!


    Price: $59

    19. A minimalistic desk with a top that lifts to reveal some pretty sneaky smart storage space.


    Price: $249

    20. A reversible L-shaped desk big enough to organize your office essentials and so stylish you just might want to do your work.


    Promising review: "You can not beat this desk for the value. It looks like a $1000 desk for less than $250. Instructions are extremely easy to follow. It said it takes two people 30 minutes to put together and I can see that being a possibility if you were familiar with furniture assembly. It took us longer than that, but we were taking breaks and rereading the instructions. As I said, the instructions were easy to follow; we did not have to redo anything and we did not mess anything up. The hardware comes in a sectioned out plastic tray so that saves you a TON of time because you don't have to sort your screws. Overall, I would recommend this desk 10 out of 10 times." —Jennifer

    Price: $253.78+ (available in three colors)

    21. A storage ottoman that'll give you more space to conveniently keep things around the house...and another reason to buy more shoes. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


    Promising review: "This ottoman was so reasonably priced that I was skeptical about ordering it. When it arrived I was delighted! No assembly required. It looked exactly like the photo and it fit perfectly into my den. I am very happy with it and love the storage as an added plus. This is a terrific buy!" —Ginny

    Price: $69.99 (available in four colors).

    22. A faux-concrete top pub set great for small spaces...and those long days when you could just really use a place to enjoy a stiff drink.


    Promising review: "I love everything about this three-piece table set. I'm a person that doesn't like a crowded area, that's why I chose this set and it didn't disappoint. It's big enough for two people and has side for storage which I use for cookies, bread, etc. Building it was so easy it and it didn't take much effort to get it. The top piece is the heaviest of them all which is a plus because it keeps the table in place and very study. I love my new table." —mrsloveable

    Price: $149

    23. A mini mudroom organizer to help solve the entryway clutter that always manages to pile up in like five minutes.


    Price: $140.14

    24. A standing armoire with so many compartments and drawers for literally every style of jewelry that Monica Geller-Bing herself would be impressed with this level of organization!


    Price: $246.48

    25. A versatile metal bed frame that'll be a step up from a mattress on the floor and seamlessly fit in with a ton of home decor aesthetics.


    Promising review: "I love this bed. It is so much more than I thought it would be. We purchased an old farmhouse and were unable to get our box spring up to the second floor. I purchased this as a temporary option until we built a bed. We love this bed so much it will be our permanent bed. This bed is very sturdy and can hold our family of five on it at one time (that was my main concern about the weight it would hold). It has two different ways that you can put it (higher or lower), we picked higher and love it. A great bed for the price, I highly recommend it. My mother and my sister are both planning to purchase same bed in near future." —BabyOnWayEndofDecember

    Price: $129 (available in sizes full-king and four colors).

    26. A small and trusty love seat you can dress up with fun pillows to perfectly match your apartment's vibe.


    Promising review: "The sofa is very attractive, modern, and sleek. We bought it for our wine bar/lounge TV room and it's not too big, not too small — the perfect size for a party of three (hubby, dog, and me). My giant schnauzer was already trying to take ownership of it even before it was fully assembled! My husband likes the firmness and support of the cushions. It seems like it will hold up well over time. Be sure to read the assembly instructions carefully and you will not have any issues. You cannot beat the great value of this sofa. It looks a lot more expensive than it is. Thank you, Walmart!!!" —StellasMum

    Price: $199

    27. A chic gold end table for adding a hint of glam to your living space or bedroom. Just be prepared to have everyone asking you where you got it!


    Price: $69.86

    28. A multifunctional cart that'll look just as good in the bathroom as it will in the living room. Use it as a plant stand or for your whiskey collection — get creative, I believe in you.


    Promising review: "I LOVE this bar cart. It's multi-functional and looks great in any room. I decided to use it as a wine bar/coffee bar. It holds so much! I also love how sturdy this piece is. My only issue when putting it together was that I had too much confidence and didn't read the instructions thoroughly, which resulted in having to take the legs on and off three different times. I definitely recommend reading the instructions as you go. The pieces look similar but they are marked for a purpose! I liked how all the screws and tools came in an organized package which made the process much easier." —Dani

    Price: $139

    29. A pair of mid-century modern chairs because can one ever have too much seating in their home? The answer is an obvious NO!


    Promising review: "Love these mid-century modern chairs! Easy to put together and perfect with an accent pillow (also a Walmart find). These will not disappoint anyone wanting to achieve this look and add style to their home! —Mamaburg

    Price: $81.23+ (for a set of two; available in four colors)

    30. An elegant nightstand you'll never want to live without after you experience the joys of its storage.


    Promising review: "The item arrived at our house very well packaged and fully assembled. There were no scratches, damages, etc. It is a beautiful piece of furniture. Looks expensive. Very well made and is real wood. The drawers are functional and on good sliders. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this. We love it." —MaxandSophia

    Price: $253.80

    31. A narrow console table that'll take up minimal space while still offering up a place for baskets and smaller things.


    Promising review: "This is a great entry/sofa table, and the price was a steal!! The size was perfect for my semi-narrow entryway — just what I've been looking for. The table was very easy to put together. The table did come with a visual diagram with everything numbered and it was very easy to follow. The table looks like I paid several hundred dollars for it." —cardsfan1

    Price: $100

    32. A three-piece, rustic-style dining table set so you can finally throw that dinner party you've been promising your friends.


    Price: $357.30

    33. A metal daybed and trundle twin that'll make the last-minute overnight guest situation a total breeze.


    Price: $178.83+ (available in three colors)

    34. A stunning wood desk for your office that offers storage *AND* style — which is the perfect combination, IMO.


    Promising review: "Beautiful! This desk looks just like the reclaimed wooden ones selling for over $1500. VERY large in person and quite heavy, but definitely worth it. My husband has desk envy and is returning his desk and purchasing this one instead! Feels like a very high-quality desk (definitely a steal for the quality)." —AHoffman1991

    Price: $281.99

    35. A small sectional sofa so you can comfortably cozy up for movie nights, even if you have a tiny apartment.


    Promising review: "I love my couch! I had it for two months. At first, it was a little uncomfortable like an office couch but after awhile it starts to break in. It's the perfect size for a 400 square feet studio apartment. I wanted something small but with a lot of seating and I got it with this perfect little sectional. If you're just starting out I would recommend it because it's affordable, trendy and with some accent pillows you can achieve that comfort you need to relax." —Mariah

    Price: $299

    36. And lastly, a pair of nesting end tables to complete your living room, because you shouldn't have to sacrifice style just to get everything to fit in a small space.


    Promising review: "Love these nesting tables. Exactly what I needed for my living room. Small, but not too small. I can move them around where I need them, split them up or keep them together. Perfect for what I need." —Peggy

    Price: $73.70+ (available in three colors)
