    1. A cloth-upholstered storage ottoman that's double the usual size and a worthy adversary for the mountain of blankets and throw pillows currently cluttering up your space.

    2. A small Nearly Natural plastic wreath for when you want to add a splash of living color to your tiny living room but the only space left is the door. Even if your house is Leslie Knope-level cluttered, you've definitely got space for this beauty.

    3. A tower fan that's small and mighty, for all y'all with tiny living rooms ~and~ no AC.

    4. A Safavieh clear acrylic bar cart for a gorgeous accent piece that's useful and doesn't add a lot of visual bulk. Yes, you can see right through it, but the ~really~ great thing about this for tiny living rooms is that it's got wheels...so it can live somewhere else when you don't need it.

    5. An affordable 1080p projector because TVs are so bulky and who has space for that?!? This bad boy is about the size of a box of cereal, for easy moving and storage. It's also equipped with Wi-Fi streaming to connect to your phone, game console, and speakers...without a big ol' mess of tangled cords.

    6. A bright and beautiful abstract rug to tie together your whole living room. I know it seems counterintuitive to put something so bold in a small room, but hear me out: adding personality and interest to a space will go a long way towards making it more habitable, and since you probably can't make the room any bigger, the next best thing is to find ways to make it cheerier, more interesting, and more enjoyable.

    7. A light and lean side chair named for my hometown, which was also the filming location for the movie Poltergeist. It looks like it costs ~stacks on stacks~, and is super minimal while still being pretty cozy, just right for occasional seating that doesn't make things feel hauntingly cluttered.

    8. And! A simple-yet-unique guitar pick-inspired accent table that has neat, elegant, clean lines. The minimalist aesthetic will help complement what little space you've got, rather than cluttering it.

    9. A minimalist coffee table with cute-yet-functional drawers, because you can take all the extra storage you can get. Unlike your living room, the drawers on this bad boy are *surprisingly* roomy.

    10. A mid-century modern TV stand that offers both open and closed storage, so you can show off the things you're proud of and hide the stuff you don't want to be looking at all the time.

    11. A TV mount so you can live it up like Michael Scott with a screen that comes out from the wall when you need it; if you've got a lot of people in the room and need more space, viola!, right into the wall.

    12. A small sofa with ~loving~ reviews from folks who live in small apartments. Even though you don't have a lot of room, you still deserve to have somewhere to sit down and take a load off!

    13. A slightly splurgey metal hanging planter with room for three plants in it. Even though your living room is tiny, you've probably still got plenty of wall space to make use of, and a little greenery is always appreciated. Plus, it's shiny!

    14. A versatile, six-cube organizer shelf that can be displayed horizontally or vertically depending on the size of your living room and the look you are going for. Reviewers love that the size of each cube is large enough to *actually* store items in — not just to display cute knickknacks.

    15. A sheer curtain panel that only lets in filtered light, so you can have some privacy. After all, if your living room's real small, there's also probably nowhere to hide. These will stop nosy folks from seeing all your business, while allowing the room to remain light and bright.

    16. A rad roll-out sofa bed that's under 4' wide, because its twofer functionality and smart design really help you maximize your limited space.

    17. A rustic floating shelf to add some display or storage space somewhere that's being under-utilized. There's all kinds of places where it makes sense, because you're not likely to bump into it; like behind the couch, above side tables and lower shelving units, or on free wall space near the TV (assuming you have room for one, ofc).

    18. A round, wire basket with copper handles to get décorganizing, because when everything has somewhere to go, your space will feel a whole lot bigger.

    19. A frameless, circular mirror that does all the mirror stuff you know and love like reflect things, add interest, and make the room look bigger...but in a slick Instagrammable design that's also super light aesthetically, because there's no hard border around it.

    20. A few sheets of peel-and-stick wallpaper to change up your room in a big way...without taking up any space at all!

    21. An air-conditioner that's sized just right for tiny living rooms, which also has a built-in dehumidifier to will help the air feel lighter, so your small space isn't so oppressive on sultry summer afternoons.

    22. A G.O.A.T Glade scented candle two-pack with a fresh floral scent, that has an escapist vibe I've been using for *years* to make my small living rooms feel livelier and lovelier.

    23. An accent cabinet that's not too deep but still has a fair amount of space inside it and a narrow-but-usable tabletop. This is a great alternative to a side table when you also need to add some storage.

    24. A textured pouf for when you and yours want to binge your favorite show together, and that loveseat you managed to squeeze into your living room is ~way~ too small for either of you to sprawl out lengthwise.

    25. A Wi-Fi connected Roomba i7 because small living rooms get dirty fast, especially if you have pets that like to shed. This AI-powered wonder is a heck of a lot smaller than a full-size vacuum, and if you're here that's probably a big plus for you as well.

    26. A trendy, small rattan basket that's just the right flourish to set off your final decorative touches...while also being a convenient location to pile up your remotes, stash your keys/phone/wallet, or to turn a covered radiator or window ledge into usable storage space. Whatever it gets used for, it's a classy decorative addition that's also got a little bit of utility to it.

    27. A ladder-style bookshelf you can use to display things that spark joy, or cram full of all the blankets, board games, cables, and other scattered odds and ends that make the space feel smaller than it is.

    28. A gold accent table that's also a stool and looks like something out of Bag End. It's also small, usable, versatile, and looks awesome: that's pretty much all the boxes checked, right there.

    29. A tiny table lamp to light up the room...without taking up too much of it.

    30. A coffee table with two shelves that's got three times the horizontal real-estate of a regular coffee table, so you can stuff it full of a tabletop's worth of stuff...and still have the actual tabletop left over! But the best part: it's natty design helps provide a little coverage for the shelving areas, so you don't have to stare at everything you shoved into it all the time.

    31. A rattan armchair with a light and airy feel, to add a seating area to your small living room without adding a lot of visual bulk.
