    1. A velvet storage ottoman with cute little hairpin legs you’ll never stop finding uses for. It’s seating! It’s a footrest! It’s a side table! And, of course, it’s a place to stash those odds and ends floating around the room that you just want to get out sight!

    The storage ottoman in the color Gray

    Promising review: “Great piece! Matched my chair so well! High quality as well! The storage area is perfect and can accommodate a few small items. Very comfortable – highly recommend! Also easy to put together!” –Jake

    Price: $99.99 (available in two colors)

    2. A pair of rattan belly baskets that’ll provide handy yet beautiful storage for everything from blankets to magazines. Decluttering goes a long, long way towards opening up a space – and sometimes, getting it done is as easy as tossing a few loose items into an aesthetically pleasing basket.

    The baskets

    Promising review: “Love these. Perfect size and look so good on the bottom shelf of our console table.” –Stephanie

    Price: $79.64

    3. A reconfigurable desktop organizer so you can keep your office essentials nearby and neatly placed. This handy organizer is actually made of two interlocking pieces you can arrange in tons of different ways, making it functional for a huge variety of spaces – including almost no space.

    The desktop organizer

    I actually have a similar piece sitting on my desk right now – I use it primarily for decor (I, uh, may have gotten super into mini-succulents over the past year), but it’s also terrific for books, notebooks, pencil holders, or anything else you might need to keep close at hand.

    Promising review: “Perfect for the space I needed it for. Both practical and eye appealing. Using this for books in a computer cabinet. This piece makes good use of the open space above one long row of books and eliminates unorganized mess. Love it.” –Sandra

    Price: $48.99

    4. A compact computer desk with built-in cable management, because nothing helps your workspace feel cleaner than making sure it’s not littered with wires. There’s a small cutout at the back of the desktop you can feed all your cables through; then, just flip down the little cover and voila! No more visible cables running every which way.

    The computer desk in the color Rustic Oak

    Promising review: “The perfect ‘big enough but small enough’ size for my gaming setup in a smaller bedroom!” –Phillip

    Price: $195.99 (available in two colors)

    5. Or, a lift-top coffee table that can convert into a laptop desk if space is at a premium in your home. By doing double-duty, this mid-century-modern-meets-rustic-cottagecore piece lets you cut down on the amount of furniture clogging up your home.

    The coffee table

    Promising review: “I love this coffee table! It’s pretty easy to put together, and doesn’t take a super long time. The lift top is really nice, especially for smaller spaces. I used this to replace a desk I no longer had room for, and it’s working well so far. Looks great, too.” –Lauren

    Price: $209.99

    6. A brightly-colored, four-tier utility cart you can use to store just about anything, and also make it ~cute~ at the same time. This metal cart has wheels for easy movement, although you can also park it and put on the brakes – literally – if you don’t want it go anywhere.

    The utility cart in the color Blue
    Author's own

    I got one of these for myself recently to help tame my embarrassingly large collection of skincare and cosmetics. See all of this? You know where it isn’t anymore? On top of my bathroom sink. In packed-to-the-gills boxes underneath my bathroom sink. Taking up two whole shelves inside the cabinet bit of the “gentleman’s chest” (weird name, but whatever) I use as a dresser. In a random bin on the floor. Instead, it’s aaaaaaaall inside this utility cart – and the difference it’s made for my bedroom is HUGE.

    Promising review: “This cart is just what I needed for some kitchen storage. I wanted a cart that ... has four tiers, which was surprisingly hard to find anywhere else online, so if you're looking for a taller-than-average cart with compact storage, this is probably your best bet. Very easy to assemble, feels sturdy, great for small spaces, and it glides on its wheels with ease.” –Victoria

    Price: $59.90+ (originally $65.99, available in seven colors)

    7. A wall-mounted mail and key organizer so you can keep all your must-haves right by the door – including, yes, mail and keys, but also extra masks, lip balm, hand sanitizer, your sunglasses, your mild sense of panic as you venture out into the world for the first time in eight million years... you know. Regular stuff.

    The mail and key organizer

    Promising review: “Love this!! I have been looking for a way to organize keys and masks and get outgoing mail off my kitchen counter and this is perfect. Solid and well-made piece.” –Marlisse

    Price: $48.99

    8. A chic velvet sectional with a reversible chaise that’ll never stop amazing you with its versatility. You can position the chaise on either end; it’s a sleeper sofa, so you can put up guests on it; AND, if you open the chaise up, you’ll find a delightful surprise: Hidden storage space that’s perfect for blankets, coffee table books, your rapidly growing jigsaw puzzle collection (#quarantinehobbies), and more.

    The sectional in the color Blush Velvet

    Promising review: “I am thrilled with this purchase. Love its versatility – reversible and a sleeping option. Fabric is luxurious, color is stunning. … It is perfect for a small home office. My only critique is that I wish it was 2-3 inches taller, but that's minor and the legs could be switched if I want to pursue it.” –Melissa

    Price: $809.99+ (originally $1,169+, available in six colors)

    9. A wall-mounted, 30-jar spice rack, because you've been bonked on the head by tiny, jar-shaped projectiles after opening up an overstuffed cabinet one too many times.

    The spice rack

    Promising review: “I ordered two of these shelves to place on my empty pantry wall. Several different size jars fit. This shelf holds a lot of items, all easily seen, and now I can find my spices easily and quickly. Yeah! Highly recommend.” –Lola

    Price: $46.96 (originally $119.99)

    10. A rolling kitchen cart so you can beef up your storage space and your prep space, all in one go. This piece has a pine wood frame equipped with two shelves (one of which can be used as a wine rack!), a storage basket, and a drawer, along with a stainless steel countertop – and it’s got a compact footprint, making it perfect for small kitchens.

    The kitchen cart in the color White

    I just picked up a similar piece to this one for my own kitchen (I’d recommend that one to you if I could, but alas, it is currently out of stock), and I honestly cannot believe what a difference stashing my three most-used pieces of cookware on its shelves instead of on my stovetop has made in terms of how neat the space looks.

    Promising review: “I absolutely LOVE this. Fits nicely in a small passage in my NYC apartment. I need the extra counter space, but love that I can use this for some extra storage and decor in my limited space, too. I just put the tray off the top and roll in on over to my teeny tiny Manhattan kitchen when I need it! I hosted my first Thanksgiving in 2019 for a whole host of friends and family and was able to use this to ceremoniously roll out the turkey for some added fun!” –Ruth

    Price: $139.99 (originally $149, available in four colors)

    11. A set of five canvas drawer organizers, because taming your exploding drawers will make you feel so accomplished. This set includes three rectangular inserts and two square ones, making it easy to compartmentalize socks, sweaters, you name it.

    The drawer organizers

    Promising review: “These are great and have a cute design. Using them to temporarily store baby clothes until I can put them nicely in our new dresser. There is a zipper diagonally across each box to help with support when you unfold it into its shape. They are sturdy and I have been packing them to the max to take advantage. This is a product that will not rip easily when you stuff it full. [Will] continue buying these to use in other parts of our house.” –Desiree

    Price: $46.99

    12. A hanging jewelry organizer so you can finally get rid of all those random trays full of tangled necklaces and earrings you’ve got sitting on every surface of your room.

    The jewelry organizer

    Promising review: “Perfect! The reason I got this specific organizer is because it had place to put my rings which was important to me. I love being able to see all of my jewelry which I think will mean I will actually wear it all!” –Irina

    Price: $36 (originally $49)

    13. Or, a free-standing, full-length mirror that opens up to reveal ~secret storage~ for all your jewels. Mirrors can help make spaces look bigger – and so does keeping your clutter under control. This handy, lockable storage solution does both. Also, you can pretend you're an infamous international jewel thief every time you crack it open.


    Promising review: “A surprisingly heavy piece, but it's perfect for our space. My fiancée was in desperate need of jewelry storage and had a ton of it spread out all over the room. … We’ve [also] used the back shelf for candles. By far my favorite thing about this piece is the revolving mirror. It's creepy to have the mirror face our bed so we turn it around at night. The stain and finish on this looked awesome.” –Gavin Mitchell

    Price: $173.99+ (originally $263.88, available in three colors)

    14. A pair of seagrass baskets with wooden handles, so you can keep all your countertop bathroom items in one place. If you have tons of lotions and potions littering the area around your sink, chuck ‘em all in these suckers to give your vanity an instant glow-up.

    The baskets

    Promising review: “Love these, using two of them in my bathroom for toiletries and hair products. They're a good size and go with everything.” –Stacy

    Price: $25.99+ (available in two sizes)

    15. A velvet-upholstered platform storage bed with a tufted headboard that’ll transform your plain ol’ bedroom into the luxe sleeping quarters of your actual dreams.

    The bed in the color Navy Blue

    Promising review: “I love my bed! The headboard is so soft and looks so glam in my new apartment. The drawers are great for storing my second bedding set. You can never have too much storage! Didn’t come with instructions, but assembly was pretty easy to figure out.” –Jenna

    Price: $494.99 (originally $575, available in two colors and two sizes)

    16. A set of 50 slim velvet hangers with so much space-saving power, you can be sure that all your clothes will actually fit inside your closet – no more leaving them draped across all your furniture due to lack of space!

    The hangers in the color Black

    Promising review: “Love these! Plan on buying more. Great quality. Thin so your hangers [are] not taking up a ton of room. And I especially love how it’s rounded so that my sweaters don’t end up stretched out at the shoulders with a funny hanger stretch mark. My plan is to change out all my hangers for these. Love them so much!” –Julie

    Price: $20.99 (available in five colors)

    17. A unique wall-mounted coat rack that’s both practical and museum-worthy. The hooks flip up into the piece when they’re not in use, making the whole thing look more like modern art than a simple place to hang your (literal) hat.

    The coat rack in the color White

    Promising review: “This is such a neat coat rack. It is made of a smooth plastic with a somewhat matte finish. The hooks feel sturdy enough to hold a heavy coat, and when the hooks are up it just looks like a cool piece of wall art.” –Crystal

    Price: $25 (available in three colors)

    18. A set of nine – count ‘em! – woven fabric baskets in various sizes, so your shelves can be both organized and pretty. As a bonus, they nest together, so stashing them when you’re not using them is a breeze.

    The baskets in the color Gray

    Promising review: “These baskets are wonderful! I ordered more so I would be able to use them to organize other closets in my house! They are so durable and hold a lot of weight (if necessary!). I am so happy that I bought these versus the other baskets that I had looked at. The color is perfect also! These were exactly what I was looking for.” –Andrea

    Price: $38+ (originally $39.99+, available in three colors)

    19. A bar-height dining table with built-in shelving, because every little bit of storage helps when you’re trying to give your home the illusion of more space. This rubberwood piece can seat four people comfortably, or as many as six if you're willing to pack it in a bit – and grabbing another bottle of wine for the table is as simple as reaching down right below you.

    The dining table

    Promising review: “Very solid and sturdy. I love the way it has wine storage on the end as well as the two cubbies, very functional. I wanted something that wasn’t too bulky and massive-looking, but still had a little storage. The color of the top is just as pictured, really beautiful.” –Anonymous

    Price: $609.99

    20. A pair of under-shelf baskets that’ll expand your kitchen storage options without cluttering up your countertops. Reviewers use these wire metal baskets to stash everything from plates and food storage container lids to snacks and boxes of tea.

    The basket

    Promising review: “I’m so glad I found these! We have a tiny kitchen with no cabinet space and using these has been a huge help with storage and organizing! I own four of these huge helpers.” –Melissa

    Price: $25.98

    21. A multi-tiered bamboo plant stand, so you make sure all of your green babies can get the sunlight they need to thrive – without taking up every surface in your home.

    The plant stand in the color White

    Promising review: “This was a present for my teenage daughter who has become quite the green thumb. It is a perfect addition to her collection of plants and sits well on top of a low table in front of a window, but still lets in light! She LOVES it!” –Allison

    Price: $77.99+ (originally $96.99+, available in two colors and three sizes)

    22. A free-standing bathroom storage cabinet, because keeping all your towels and toiletries in order doesn’t have to take up a ton of space. The airy, open shelves up top let you keep your most-used items in an easily accessible place, while the cabinet below provides a handy spot to stash bath sheets, wash cloths, extra toilet paper, and more.

    The cabinet

    Promising review: “LOVE THIS PIECE. We recently had our shower expanded but didn't want to lose any storage space from the bathroom. We tossed out the old cabinet and replaced with this one. PERFECT FIT. Exactly what we were looking for, spacious as well as pretty.” –EJ

    Price: $176.99

    23. A three-tiered overdoor hanging organizer, so you can make the most of the underutilized space behind any door.

    The organizer

    Promising review: “This over-the-door hanging organizer allows a closet or bathroom to be neatly picked up with hint of elegance. It was very easy to put together and the baskets are sturdy and deep enough to hold a rolled-up bath towel. I like it very much and I am hoping there’ll be more in stock for future purchases.” –Fleurinette

    Price: $64.77 (originally $70.04)

    24. A sleek, two-drawer filing cabinet that’ll make sorting and securing your most important documents a breeze. With lockable drawers and wheels on each corner, this white metal filer combines form and function in the best way possible.

    The filing cabinet

    Promising review: “I love it, it’s the perfect fit for my home office and the best price I could find online for something nice. It’s lightweight and was really easy to assemble, only needed to add the wheels to the base and the handles to drawer. It’s not your typical filing cabinet – it has a stylish and modern look to it and the color perfectly matches the decor of my office and the color of my desk. Perfect home office addition!” –Tenecia

    Price: $104.99

    25. A wall-mounted ladder bookcase, because there’s a reason open shelving is so popular: It opens up your space in a way that heavy, closed bookcases do not. This six-tier pick, which can hold up to 55 pounds on each shelf, has a streamlined profile that hugs the wall to give your surroundings an even airier feel.

    The shelf in the color Oak/Black

    Promising review: “I'm obsessed with this bookcase. I have a lot of books and not enough space. This was very simple to put together. I loved the little jokes in the instruction. I completely agree with the instructions, it was a little stressful attaching the bookcase to the wall but well worth it. I love the added stability. I did weigh my textbook to make sure I did not go over the 55-lb limit per shelf. Definitely recommend!” –Julissa

    Price: $213.99+ (originally $246.99+, available in three colors)

    26. A storage bench that’ll do wonders for your entryway. First, it gives you a comfy place to put your shoes on and take them off whenever you leave or get home (cushions are included!); and second, it’s got both space to store those shoes and a flip-top compartment underneath the seat to hold even more stuff.

    The storage bench

    Promising review: “This bench worked perfectly for our front entryway. It's sturdy and well-constructed. Can get about five to eight pairs of shoes on the bottom and then the bench opens for more storage. Highly recommend.” –Grace

    The baskets in the color Black

    Promising review: “Perfect for the look and functionality I was looking for. Super easy to hang and holds quite a bit. I chose to screw the bigger basket into a stud to make it sturdy enough for heavier objects.” –Kristina

    Price: $25.99 (originally $49.99, available in three colors)

    28. A glam glass end table that’ll fill your living room with light – and I mean that literally, because every ounce of light the space gets will flow right through this pick. Plus, the storage shelf down below has a mirrored surface, so it can both hold your favorite coffee table books and help bounce even more light around your place. Talk about lighting up your life!

    The end table in the color Antique Brass

    Promising review: “Love these tables! Trendy, and the mirror adds a nice touch. Items packed well and very easy to put together. However, the picture color looks more gold tone and mine were more brushed bronze color. That was okay though. I would recommend these tables.” –Cindy

    Price: $144.99 (available in two colors)

    29. Or, an end table with industrial appeal that comes equipped with a cloth sling to stash your magazines, your tablet, the book you’re currently reading, and more.

    The end table

    The dresser in the color Green

    Promising review: “Beautiful piece! And the best part is it came assembled. Very heavy and sturdy.” –Kate

    Price: $919.99+ (available in two colors)

    31. And a folding bamboo laundry hamper, because getting your dirty clothes off the floor and into some kind of basket can be the dividing line between a disaster zone and a dreamy hideaway.

    The laundry hamper

    Promising review: “Love this laundry basket! Super easy to put together. I was concerned that because it is a folding hamper, it wouldn’t be sturdy, but I was so wrong! This hamper is super sturdy and goes well with my room decor.” –Erika

    Price: $28.99 (originally $39.99)
