    1. A linen futon in a cheery mustard yellow that's sure to have you thinking, "Well color me impressed!" every time you step into your living room and see the prime palette you've put together.


    Promising review: "I am very impressed with this couch, especially for the money! We put it in our Airstream trailer, and it has taken the design to another level. I'm so happy we pulled the trigger on this. I also like the mustard color; it's unique and funky. It is firm but still comfortable." —William Skyles

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $283.99 (available in eight colors).

    2. A set of three floating bookshelves to add a mod kind of magic to your stark white walls, while saving your minimal floor space from bulky bookshelves.


    Promising review: "These are so much fun! We ordered the small size, which fits standard hardback books (five to seven hardbacks in my experience). They're a great way to add some extra storage to our very small home, and we've placed them in our hallway so people ask us about them all the time. I highly recommend them! These are one of my favorite Amazon purchases ever!" —LaBuenaVidaMere

    Get them from Amazon for $19.79+ (available in two sizes).

    3. A pair of rainbow drip candles you can put inside a vase, wine bottle, or candle holder. These colorful candles will brighten up your room even better than the flame you light 'em with!


    Promising review: "These have to be the coolest thing I have ever purchased. I have them in an empty wine bottle. I will be buying many more to cover the entire bottle in wax." —Bre

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99.

    4. A bleached oak dresser – I'd say you should throw your TV on this and make it the centerpiece of your living room but I'm worried it'll be too lovely to stop looking at...your shows won't stand a chance.


    TBH, worth it.

    Get it from Anthropologie for $1,498.

    5. A marine palm wallpaper you can easily stick on your rental's walls and eventually remove it...damage-free. Honestly! You won't beleaf how much this improves your space.


    Promising review: "I love, love, love this wall paper!!! It is beautiful and unique, refined and elegant, and heavy duty quality. I found it super easy to install, though I opted to use it for a room border versus full wall coverage. I also found it very forgiving, allowing me to pull it back off and adjust areas without leaving permanent dents in the design. It gave my son’s bedroom a whole new look and I have gotten lots of compliments on this wallpaper! I absolutely love it!" —Melissa

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $39.99.

    6. A magnetic lamp with "floating" orbs that'll look, ahem, amazeballs in your space.


    Promising review: "This lamp is so beautiful it is a piece of art itself. I put it in my family room and it changed the style for the entire room. I feel everything in the room has been upgraded. The light is soft and warm, it isn't to bright or dark and it makes the room feel cozy. It is so pretty it's also nice just as an art figure. Well done." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $69.95+ (available in four colors).

    7. A blue and ivory rug that's stain and mildew resistant (i.e. kid and pet-friendly) – for families who want one space in the house that actually *does* look as great in real life as it does on Instagram.


    Promising review: "If you're looking at this one you won't be sorry. The blues are true to picture and the texture is lovely. It's not super thick, about what you'd expect. When I unrolled this large one there were NO wrinkles. There's also no oder. I'm not always pleased ordering online but I couldn't be happier with this purchase!" —Angela

    Get it from Amazon for $54.26+ (available in two colors and 19 sizes).

    8. An entryway mirror that'll do wonders on your walls. The minute you see how much elegance this adds, you'll vow to keep it around forever.,

    Promising review: "I am in love with this mirror! It is very large and perfect for what I needed! It came packaged well and shipped pretty quickly! I love the modern look and love the price!" —Rachel H.

    Get it from Amazon for $50+ (available in eight colors and six sizes).

    9. A mint dresser with enough storage to hide all your knickknacks. This is sure to have your living room looking like it's in ~mint~ condition (no matter what mess you have hiding in the drawers).


    Promising review: "I have zero issues with this well made dresser. The handles fit perfectly and the mint green gets compliments all day long. I love it and am 100% happy with my purchase. It's cheerful and happy." —C&H

    Get it from Amazon for $378.11+ (available in two colors).

    10. A Pantone storage stool that's gonna delight artistic types who want something special to put their feet up on when they are ~swatching~ TV.

    Uncommon Goods

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $80.

    11. An AeroGarden that'll be a truly fool-proof way to grow fresh herbs outside of a garden and inside of your fifth-floor walkup.


    This uses energy-efficient LED lights that automatically turn on and off and it has feed/water reminders to help keep your herbs, you know, alive. It also includes Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, mint, thyme, Thai basil, and Miracle-Gro plant food. My BuzzFeed coworker has one of these and wrote a full review about how easy it is to grow plants in your apartment with this AeroGarden.

    Promising review: "I am really enjoying my AeroGarden. First, its narrow clean design fits into my kitchen well. Of the six seedlings, only the mint didn’t grow, but I have more dill and basil than I can use some weeks. I was apprehensive about the 'every two week clean out', but it is very easy; it only takes five minutes. I like it better than my 'click and grow' which is not hydroponic. I just bought another to give to my sister as a gift. It's a great product! And thank you for the great price Macy’s!" —LDianeP

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $129.99 (available in two colors).

    12. A customizable sleeper sofa with an incredibly comfortable queen-sized mattress and a stunning velvet style for anyone who wants their guests to dream about life in your impossibly lovely living room.


    I constantly have guests staying at my apartment and I needed a sleeper sofa that wouldn't take up much space, while still being comfortable enough for two people to sleep on for extended periods of time (because when our parents visit, my husband and I are the ones on the sofa). I ordered this sofa in a customized color/fabric and I couldn't be happier! It's comfortable, gorgeous, and the queen-sized mattress is almost more comfortable than my bed. Seriously.

    Get it from Joybird for $2029+ (material, color, and wood-stain customizations available).

    13. A sequin accent chair – this is sure to make your kids absolutely beside themselves with joy when they see it. Kids love sequins and sequins love kids. That's a fact.


    Promising review: "Well, my beach theme is complete now that I have a mermaid chair. The teal color is great. Everyone tells me I'm crazy and that I don't need a sequined chair...but who cares what they say, right? Its mine. I like it. It looks cute. It's also sturdy, well made, and doesn't feel cheap." —MyPenName

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $158.94+ (available in two colors).

    14. A droplet vase so pretty, a flower would almost take away from it (which is great news for anyone who knows plants don't live long in their living room).


    Promising review: "Beautiful is an understatement! This is a must have for small and big apartments and homes. I’m even more pleased with some of the pottery in Now House than Adler's more expensive line — which I own a lot of!" —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $28.

    15. A photography book that just might be the picture perfect way (literally) to add a striking conversation piece to your coffee table.


    Promising review: "My kids are seven and four and they ask to spend time every night looking at the pictures and reading about them. The photos are very eye-opening and give the kids, and myself, a new perspective on this world we live in. The quality of the printing and paper is quite nice as well. We have a lot of books around but this one seems to have captured the kids' attention more than any other." —Holland

    Get it from Amazon for $23.97.

    16. An ice cream clock that'll add something sweet to your living room lick-edy split!

    Modern Moose

    Promising review: "I saw this clock for sale at a couple of different museum stores and knew right away that it would be a tastefully cute addition to my daughter's room. It's been great!" —JW

    Get it from Modern Moose for $57.99.

    17. A pair of pom pom pillow covers so you can cover up the stains on your sofa with something so chic no one will dare move them to sit down...and thus, the unfortunate spaghetti stain of 2017 can stay hidden forever.


    Promising review: "I bought these in the off-white color. The material is soft and silky but not gaudily shiny. It doesn’t wrinkle and doesn’t require ironing. The quality and price totally meets my expectation and budget — great quality at a great price!" —Zuma

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99 (available in 20 colors and seven sizes).

    18. A trinket dish that's gonna catch your keys, jewelry, and tiny treasures in a truly eye-catching way.

    Get it from Anthropologie for $828.

    20. A chrome accent table that's sure to prove your aesthetic is anything but square.


    Promising review: "I am in love with this table! It is stylish without being over the top, which makes it perfect for my studio apartment. The package was delivered when it was promised, and the table was packed very securely. It's definitely a high-quality, heavy piece which is exactly what I wanted and hoped it would be. It's finished well around the edges and the price was great. This exceeded my expectations – highly recommend!" —Vanim

    Get it from Amazon for $176.99 (available in two colors).

    21. A metal moon phase garland so you can have one simple piece in your place that leaves your guests starry-eyed.


    Promising review: "I am absolutely in love with this statement piece! The moons are so well crafted and the metal doesn't feel cheap. The packaging was so cute I want to keep it. It even came with a cute little care card. This is perfect to help brighten up any room in your house!" —Roriann

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two colors and sizes).

    22. A tree bookshelf that'll really ~spruce~ up your room.


    Promising review: "I love this bookshelf! It’s a work of art! I have not yet fastened it to the wall as I hate to put more holes in the wall but may have to once I fill it up with more books. This is the cutest." –Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $71.99+ (available in two colors).

    23. A surprisingly unique bamboo wall clock with useful shelf space, warm, open coloring, and a wordy clock face that's gonna tell it how it is.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "Yeah it's a little expensive but it can also be used as a shelf and it keeps perfect time. I'm very happy with it." —ChrisKing

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $295.

    24. A cotton throw blanket – honestly, finding another throw this cute sounds like too much of a ~tassel~ so forget looking can go ahead and get this right the heck now.


    Promising review: "Great, stylish blanket. I have gotten so many compliments, and it’s just as cozy as it is stylish. Good buy!" —l.johnston

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

    25. A leather floor pouf to help you actually enjoy your nontraditional seating when your studio laughs in the face of a full-sized sofa.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "The neutral is true to color. I really wanted this color and I searched elsewhere but wasn’t able to find this color at a cheaper price. It’s definitely a lot to spend but I am happy with the purchase. I would recommend. It's great!"—UrbanSarah31

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $269 (available in six colors).

    26. A ceramic wall hook that's totally gonna make your friends say, "I've gotta ~hand~ it to you, your decor game is on point."


    Promising review: "This is really beautiful! I was going to use it for towels in the bathroom. It holds them well enough but it's much too pretty to cover up! I like this for holding a phone." —Lyss3891

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    27. A handwoven natural fiber rug sure to give your home an earthy look you'll love with every ~fiber~ of your being.


    Promising review: "I love this rug, it's tough and cute! I've had it for a couple of months and there's barely any wear, minus a snag from an attack kitty claw, but even that I was able to smooth out. It has nice quality and color. The ends are just yarn and I think is cute and fits with the natural materials of rug. It is perfect for entryway and heavy enough to not need rubber backing underneath. Great quality and customer service." —Suzy

    Get it from Amazon for $47.14+ (available in seven sizes).

    28. An upholstered mushroom stool for anyone who is all, "I'm too old for this shiitake!" when searching for darling, dependable home decor has got you down. Guess what? Your job is done. You've found it.

    Urban Outfitters

    29. A tiered weathered oak desk which, despite it's tiny footprint, will hold a home-office-sized amount of stuff in the corner of your living room you endearingly call " the office."


    Promising review: "This is a great, cool, modern desk for a fraction of the price. This is the perfect height and width to hold a 27"– 35". This is shockingly well made and quick to ensemble. It's also super perfect for small places." —CBGrundy

    Get it from Amazon for $55+ (available in four colors).

    30. A stunning national parks wall calendar so adventurers suffering from wanderlust can keep a detailed schedule of their future travels in view at all times, on a calendar that's a view all on its own.

    Studio Inception

    31. Or a lovely Grand Canyon, Smoky Mountains, or Yellowstone candle that'll let you breathe in the fresh scent of your next vacation before you even leave your living room.

    Promising review (Yellowstone): "Everything about this candle is amazing! The look, size, and smell are perfect! I’m obsessed and plan to purchase it as gifts for family, friends, and myself again!" —Shelby H.

    32. And finally, a decorative pillow for people who love bread so much they want their decor to incorporate at ~yeast~ a loaf or two.


    Promising review: "This is one of the greatest gifts for someone who loves pillows or bread. I got this for my wife. She loves it. She laughed at it. Is it comfortable? You bet your bottom dollar it is. It heats up just like a fresh loaf of bread right out of the oven if you sleep hot." —J's Review
