    2. An orb chandelier that'll delight modern design-minded folks who want a statment piece that'll really light up a room.

    3. A magnetic knife block sure to keep your minimalist apartment looking ~sharp.~ Your kitchen is about to look as crisp as the french fries you keep popping outta that new air fryer of yours.

    4. A cabinet hammock — a fun, decorative option for folks who love having produce ~hanging~ around within eye site. I can't think of anything that'd convince me to impulse-eat fruits and veggies as well as this cute display!

    5. A table lamp that's equal parts modern and timeless – i.e. a piece you're gonna need if you prefer filling your home with aesthetically pleasing investments that are worth the splurge.

    6. A gray and black crocodile peel-and-stick wallpaper for giving a wall or old piece of furniture some texture and depth. This is no croc — this material is *made* for sprucing up your rental's plain white walls.

    7. A walnut bath caddy so you can be sure you have all the essentials by your side during a relaxing bath *and* know it looks as luxurious as it feels.

    9. A leopard print duvet cover for showing off your wild child side when you live in the city but that jungle life is calling your name. Rawr.

    10. Interlocking Teak tiles I'm pretty certain were made specifically to turn rentals into brag-worthy homes. You don't need tools to install them as long as they're going on a hard, flat surface. That means you'll be able to simply take them apart and pack them up the next time you move!

    11. A Memphis rug to make sure even your floors have a hearty dose of darling personality.

    18. A bed canopy (that doesn't require bed posts!) sure to massively enhancing even the barest of bedrooms. Have a mattress on the floor? It's about to look magic.

    19. A natural wood roller toy — if the millennial enthusiasm for pet parenthood has given us anything, it's pet toys that aren't an eyesore! Grab this for your kitten and know that, in their eyes, *you* are the pick of the litter.

    20. A fiber art tapestry you can use as a headboard (even with a bare bones bed frame). This lightweight option is also great if you move around a lot! It's fun to have a statement-making bed, but nobody wants to be lugging a headboard to a third-floor walkup.

    24. A mod cat bed that'll make Whiskers look even cuter while they sleep. Didn't think that was possible? Neither did I. This thing proved us wrong! And I'm not mad.

    25. A baroque mirror sure to shock your friends when you tell them you found it on Amazon. That is, IF you tell them.

    Promising review: "All I can say is woooow! This mirror is not only affordable, but the quality is amazing. It’s heavy and not cheap-looking. The gold color is not so tacky, and it’s done just right. My main concern was receiving a broken mirror but the packaging was great and arrived in one piece. Don’t hesitate buying this gem, you need it!" —Celeste C

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in multiple shapes and sizes).

    26. A ceramic side table that'll add an abstract touch to your blessedly eclectic style.

    27. A CovoBox that's hollow on the inside, so you can cover your Wi-Fi router with elegant "books" instead of leaving it out on display. What a *novel* idea!

    Before adding this to your cart, you have the option to customize it, including selecting from 14 lengths and 15 colors (including custom colors). The CovoBox is made from reclaimed books and sustainable wood.

    BTW — Covogoods is a small family-owned business creating home decor in Utah!

    Promising review: "I’m pretty sure I’ve never loved a purchase from Amazon as much as I love this one. This product is EXTREMELY well made and very unique. Plus, it does the job of hiding the ugly routers and cords. And the customer service was great and responsive. I was a little hesitant to spend the money on this but after years of living with the husband’s pile of technology, the money was well spent!" —AmazonEmme

    Get it from Covogoods on Amazon Handmade for $29+ (available in customizable sizes and colors).

    28. An abstract vase because, let's ~face~ it, you're running out of water bottles to hold all the fresh flowers you've brought home this summer. This is gonna look so good next to all its new water bottle buddies.

    29. An elegant switch plate cover for sprucing up your space if the fixer upper you own needs updates from top to bottom. These inexpensive plate covers were *made* for making bland walls look bold.

    Promising review: "These are absolutely beautiful! If I ever move, I'm taking them with me. You may think they're a little pricey, but they're REALLY heavy and far nicer than the stuff you find at the local hardware store. I bought the switch plate, outlet plates, and even a blank plate to cover an old electrical box left behind by DirecTV." —Karebow

    Get it from Amazon for $15+ (available in six finishes). 

    30. An ultra soft faux fur rug sure to feel luxurious every time you get out of bed and have this fancy fuzz between your toes instead of the cold wood floors beneath your feet.

    Promising review: "My parents went to Europe and sat outside on furs like these and now they do the same at home. They live in the mountains in Utah. They put these on their metal patio chairs and then cover themselves with a blanket outside in the winter. The furs keep your backside insulated and then topped with the blanket they are able to have cocktail hour(s) on the deck all year long! It’s honestly pretty sweet and the dog gets her own to lie on when she’s outside too." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in two sizes and eight colors). 

    31. A coffee table from BloomingTables you'll simply ~plant~ in front of your sofa and then let the compliments roll in. I own this and I have never, in all my years, had a piece of furniture receive so much attention. People go wild over this thing!

    I have a coffee table from this San Diego-based small biz and I LOVE it. I am an unapologetic maximalist — my apartment is chock-full of eye-catching decor that's all fighting to be the statement-making centerpiece of my home, but this coffee table is officially the winner. The table is completely leak free, and the draining valve keeps me from overwatering my furniture (a thing that is possible with this table, because the future is now). Be sure to check out the site's Instagram for inspiration!

    Get it from BloomingTables for $389 (available in two colors). 

    32. An arched floor mirror — it's gonna add a modern elegance to your room and help bounce light around your space. Every time you look at this piece you're gonna ~reflect~ on all your good decor life choices. I promise.

    33. A wireless library light with both warm and cool settings, so you can highlight favorite books or pieces of art in your home.

    This uses three AAA batteries and includes a remote that lets you set the light to different brightnesses and schedule a timer for 15, 30, 60, or 120 minutes.

    Promising review: "For the price you can’t beat it. Super easy to install and lightweight. The gold had a slight orange tint to it, so be mindful of that. I actually just taped over the light and spray-painted ours with gold spray paint I had left over and then they were absolutely perfect." —Paris Seder

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in three colors).

    34. A firework chandelier — a modern statement piece that'll enhance your front hallway, showing all your guests you REALLY know how to make an entrance.

    35. A roll of peel-and-stick wallpaper that's gonna take you to a tropical paradise — without even leaving your home.

    36. An upholstered sofa with a cozy design you can count on when trying to enhance your entire space with one specific piece. This gorgeous sofa proves that color isn't everything when it comes to making a statement. Go off the walls...with minimalism.

    37. A stainless-steel rainfall shower head that'll turn your simple shower into a simply luxurious spa experience every time you turn the water on.

    38. And finally, a pack of absurdly pretty toilet paper made of bamboo for *cheeky* maximalists who wanna live in a world where clashing patterns are the rule, rather than a rarity...even when it comes to toilet paper.

    When your home looks worthy of some HGTV attention:
