    1. Luxe velvet accent chairs to make your desk or dining room table setup feel two notches fancier — upon stepping in your home, your guests will say, "Color me impressed!"


    Promising review: "Honestly, the best chairs for the price out there. It's true to color and the velvet is so soft and high quality. The legs aren't real wood but it doesn't look cheap at all. I use them as desk chairs, but they would also work great as dining room chairs too." —Marissa McClain

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $125.99+ (available in five colors).

    2. A minimalist console table for your plants and random belongings to sit pretty on without taking up much space.


    Promising review: "Another great buy from Walmart! It fits my decor, budget, and does not look cheap at all. It was also easy to assemble. I put it together myself and it only took around 20 mins. This was my first time putting anything together I am happy with this purchase." —RedPrada00

    Get it from Walmart for $44.80 (available in four colors).

    3. A plush sleeper futon that doesn't cost a thousand bucks, will be perfect for any overnight guests you have, *and* a place you won't mind passing out on — which is, after a GoT marathon, very likely.


    Promising review: "Purchased this futon for our playroom. I was worried it would look cheap, but it doesn't and looks amazing (the color in the product's sample photos is very accurate) and everyone compliments on how nice it looks in the room. We've spent a lot of time sitting on it reading books this winter and it hasn't shown any wear. Also it spot-cleaned great." —Pankonin1218

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99 (available in five colors).

    4. A mixed-media coffee table which is probably the non-human equivalent to an art school student who graduated at the top of their class — ambitious, put-together, and capable of hosting the grownup party of the year.


    Promising review: "Very easy to assemble! Holy cow! While putting it together, you'll realize that the wood ain't wood and the metal ain't metal, but it's light because of its materials, so I'm still very glad — I would rather have something less expensive and lightweight, so I don't have to stress about it getting damaged. At the end of the day though, I still love the way it looks and I have been making extensive use of it from the moment it was assembled. Highly recommended!" —Adam

    Get it from Amazon for $83.99+ (available in four colors/styles).

    5. An elegant AF rose gold wine rack that's so gorgeous it might take your breath away — so my advice to you is: breathe in, breathe out, and take a big sip of wine from any of your six bottles.


    Promising review: "This wine rack is even nicer in person. It is a beautiful color and can hold up to six wine glasses. It is so pretty and can definitely be used as decor as well. The rose gold color makes it very on trend and modern. It seems durable and good quality as well. I am very happy with this wine rack. It isn't bulky, so it adds that minimalist look." —slp07e

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in four colors).

    6. A speckled dinnerware set to add just a little bit of excitement to each meal, without feeling like they're *too* special for everyday occasions and must stay locked up for parties/gatherings.

    Crate & Barrel

    I bought the dinner plates and I'm obsessed. Finally graduating with plain white IKEA plates = a big appreciation for small upgrades and a greater desire to cook more and serve food on them.

    Promising review: "I love these plates! The neutral color makes it easy to dress up for a nicer meal setting but they also look casual enough for an everyday meal. They are sturdy with a little texture. They are dishwasher-safe and we haven't had any breaks so far! Recommend them for sure." —Dani

    Get the four-piece set from Crate & Barrel for $32.76.

    7. A golden brass lamp can shine a spotlight on you and your treasured belongings — it'll also guide you through the darkest of times (or novels).


    Promising review: "This lamp looks much more expensive that it is: it's solid and casts a very nice glow." —Poppy Jones

    Get it on Amazon for $69.99 (available in two finishes).

    8. A gilded gold (or silver) geometric end table with a mirrored top to instantly elevate any living room setup from meh to ~glam.~


    Promising review: "Such a cute little side table! It arrived fully assembled and in wonderful condition. The gold has a glam look to it, and the mirror on top is beautiful. It is super lightweight and easy to move, but sturdy enough to be able to hold a lamp or vase. Pay close attention to measurements because it is a bit on the short side, but for the price (I was comparing several accent tables before choosing this one) it is way cheaper and better quality! Total steal!!" —Jessicalynn

    Get it from Amazon for $64.99+ (available in two finishes).

    9. A gorgeous marble cutting board no one will believe you got on Amazon — I mean, the weight, the sturdiness (it has little rubber "feet" to stabilize it), and the contrast makes it perfect for preparing dough or serving cheese and other light bites.


    The marble stone naturally keeps dough and other ingredients cool, helping butter, cheese, and other cooking items chill and firm. And it is recommended you hand-wash the cutting board with a mild detergent.

    Promising review: “In love! I was looking at much more expensive versions of this board and kind of had low expectations based on the price. Silly me. It’s amazing, solid, beautiful, and exactly what I was looking for." —Kaela Beach

    Get it from Amazon for $21.62+ (available in three colors).

    10. Mod nesting side tables you can artfully arrange in a number of ways, and move them around as you see fit (aka, plop them front and center in front of the couch for easy access to your cheese and wine).


    Promising review: "I can’t get over how simple, but elegantly mid-century these things are. First of all, putting them together was a breeze. Secondly, I actually spray painted the ends of the legs in gold to look like they are 'dipped in paint,' which seems to be a trendy things these days. I love how they look. I love the practicality of them and I love how versatile they are. Could be a coffee table, could be side tables. I’m actually using them as bedside tables. For how inexpensive they are, they are well worth it." —Lindsay Stephen

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in circular and triangular).

    11. A set of mirrored makeup holders that'll stand out and attract compliments no matter where you put them — and plus, it's easy to separate your makeup and tools by category.


    Promising review: “My mom gave me an antique vanity for Christmas, and I was looking for something a little more decorative for my makeup brushes than my acrylic holder. After looking at Hobby Lobby, Walmart, and Target, I was very happy to have come across these! They were exactly what I was looking for. They came packaged nicely and none of them were damaged. The holders are very sturdy and hold all my brushes and display them well. They’re not 'cheaply' made, which was my only concern. The mirrored parts are genuine and match the look of what I wanted for my vanity. I would recommend these to anyone who is looking for cute and decorative storage!" —Destiny Campbell

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $32.99.

    12. A shaggy and soft diamond-patterned rug your bank account won't have a heart attack over — just sink your toes in this baby and enjoy your newfound luxury (bye, hard floor!).


    Promising review: "This rug is beautiful! It is super soft underneath my feet! We have had a few spills on it (maybe a bit of red wine) and it is super easy to clean! Hair and crumbs vacuum up well which isn’t normally the case with shaggy rugs. Arrived quickly without any issue! I’m thinking about buying another for a backup!" —HeatherMarie

    Get it from Amazon for $32.29+ (available in 10 sizes/shapes).

    13. A sophisticated vanity setup to make people think you're a professional makeup artist — but no, you just take your lighting very seriously.


    Promising review: "I use this for my makeup studio to seat my clients while I do their makeup and it looks so professional. My clients are always complimenting it. It’s also a great vanity for personal use as well." —Ash

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99 (comes with 3000k or 6000k LED bulbs, which are shipped separately according to reviewers).

    14. An expandable, air-vented bread box that'll house your delicious loaves in and keep them day-one fresh for many breakfasts to come (because they deserve better than those ugly plastic bags they come in!).


    The bread box is dishwasher-safe and BPA-free, and expands to fit various loaf sizes. It also features air vents that can be opened or closed for different climates and closes with magnetic snaps.
 It also collapses to half its size for easy storage!

    Promising review: “I’ve been baking bread for quite a while now. And until I got this bread keeper, my bread would go stale in about three days if I left it out. I could extend it to four days, if I put it in a plastic bag. But there would definitely be mold by the fifth day. But with this bread keeper, I've seemed to be able to keep bread fresh for over a week. The crust definitely gets soft. But there is no mold. And after about 10 days, it is only stale around the edges.” —Casen Davis

    Get it from Amazon for $19.28.

    15. A modern slotted knife stand to slot your varied collection of knives in a more aesthetically pleasing and probably safer manner (knives all jumbled up in a drawer together = scary).


    Promising review: "This is the coolest thing I've purchased in a long time. I replaced two magnetic wall strips where I stored all my knives. I have placed 24 knives (editor's note: if you stack two into one slot) and a pair of kitchen scissors in this baby...NO PROBLEM. Other reviewers talk about their knives touching the bottom. They must have LONG knives. I have three bread knives and three chef knives (all pretty long) and none of them touch the bottom. This is good-looking, remarkably stable, and easy to use. It takes up mere inches on my countertop. I can see all the knives easily. I AM SO HAPPY WITH THIS PURCHASE." —Kelli

    Get it from Amazon for $26+ (available in circular and rectangular shapes).

    16. A clean-cut dining table perfect for that ~adult~ stage in life where you host more dinner parties, and don't dump takeout on it every other day (every three days, however, is perfectly fine).


    Promising review: "This is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Took five minutes to put together and is super sturdy. Couldn't ask for anything better!" —Jessica Boblooch

    Get it from Amazon for $76.24+ (available in three colors).

    17. A chic two-tier nightstand or side table to store everything you need at a moment's notice, either perched on either shelf or tucked away in the drawer — its understated style will go with basically any other home pieces you have.


    Promising review: "I love this little nightstand. I have a really small bedroom so I was looking for something with a storage component and am so glad I bought this little guy. I put it together by myself in about 30 mins and it looks great. It's the perfect size and height and I love the drawer to store your random junk. It seems very high quality and there is a nice coating on the top so I feel safe putting my overnight glass of water on it without fear of rings." —ekd

    Get it from Amazon for $55.99+ (available in two colors).

    18. A beautiful stainless steel kettle you'll definitely want to 'gram on the next rainy day (#cozy) — it has a soft-touch, stay-cool handle that'll never burn ya' as you pour out your afternoon cup of tea.


    FYI, it has a removable wide mouth for easy cleaning (hand-wash only) and an easy-open trigger spout.

    Promising review: "Great look, and the handle — which looks like wood — is actually rubber. It whistles while it works!" —Hunter1875

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $27.29 (originally $56.99).

    19. A leaning ladder rack to keep any clothes not quite ready to be washed or to-be-worn outfits right in sight and neatly hung, instead of strewn all across your floor...and chairs, and desk, and bed frame.


    Promising review: "I'm one of those 'I wore it once and it's not ready to wash yet' people. This ladder is perfect for draping shirts instead of in a pile. Such a simple idea. At first it was awkward assembling it until I figured out how to attach all one side's rungs first; do not try to do one rung at a time on both sides. It's lightweight and has good soft tips at the top and bottom. I love the black and the wooden rung at the top." —amazed

    Get it from Amazon for $50+ (available in white and black).

    20. A simple but chic canopy bed, so you can be one step closer to feeling like a queen slumbering in her luxurious quarters.


    Promising review: "WOW. Best purchase I have ever made based on only seeing online before buying. I HIGHLY recommend this canopy bed to anyone looking for one. All the parts came in one long box, all the tools you need to build it are included, and the instructions were very clear on how to assemble it. My husband and I built in an hour and a half (and then we got the best sleep of our lives). I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this canopy bed. WE LOVE IT!" —Kara A. Lynn

    Get it from Amazon for $159.24+ (available in sizes twin, full, and king and four colors; also available in a built-in headboard version)

    21. A stylish and functional wire wall grid to hang all of your favorite photos and momentos on — because personal touches matter!

    Urban Outfitters

    It includes mounting hardware and nine clips for photos, but you can simply use binder clips if you need to hang up more stuff!

    Promising review: "I bought this in black and was pleased it came with golden clips. They look great together. There were a total of 10 in the pack. I also bought the Wire Grid Shelf and it complements it nicely as well." —nasvsthwrld

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $49 (originally $59; available in two colors).

    22. A contemporary lamp with a hammered metal–inspired finish you'll probably never want to switch off. Ever. And who can blame you (besides your electricity bill)?


    Promising review: "Sturdy, well made, nice-looking lamp that is very reasonably priced. I was looking for a simple, unique-looking lamp for my bedroom, and this is it. The silver base gives it a little pizazz." —SS

    Get it on Amazon for $49.95+ (available in four shades and four heights).

    23. A classy linen futon could be the choice nap spot for you (and your furry pals) during many lazy weekends in your hopefully near future.


    Promising review: "Great price! Quality seems to be great too! Very stylish, I have already had so many compliments on it. I searched and searched for a decent used couch and came up with nothing good, I love that it’s brand new! It’s even longer and deeper than I hoped. Not disappointed. Easy to assemble, took me about an hour. It’s pretty heavy though! A couple pillows in the corners will be the perfect extra comfort. Doesn’t look like a futon at all, but that’s a nice feature to have if you need it. Great color selections. Time will tell if it spot cleans easily, but the material seems like it will. Charlie gave it two paws up before she took a snooze!" —Alexandra

    Get it from Amazon for $243.99+ (available in six colors).

    24. A tufted and roomy faux leather chair just waiting for you (and your butt) to sink into it — you might even prefer it over the couch, gasp!


    Promising review: "Oh my goodness...this chair is amazing! I ordered two to go on both sides of my couch in the living room and they look amazing. They are a little bigger than I though they would be, considering they look mini in the pic, but they are definitely oversized and take up more room than I though they would. However, they still fit into the room and make my living room really pop. However, I had to paint the legs black to match my room but the paint went on easy and dried easy. The assembly took all of 10 minutes or less and the chair is still very sturdy. What else can I say besides this is probably the best online purchase I've ever made!" —Shumeka K. Chandler

    Get it from Amazon for $100.34+ (available in three colors).

    25. A finely crafted bar cart with elegant frosted glass shelves and upside-down glass-holders and standing wine bottle holders for the ultimate posh drinking experience.

    After all, your booze doesn't deserve to be hidden in cabinets!

    Promising review: "I got this cart as a present for someone who loves to entertain but doesn't have much space for serving. It's a classy, compact little serving cart that can hold pretty much anything!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $71.46.

    26. A stylish computer desk you'd probably rather be shopping on right at this very moment — it has just enough space for the essentials (plus a handy drawer!) while not *taking up* a lot of space.


    It has a solid wood base and can hold up to 120 pounds.

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful desk with amazing quality! I love the size of the drawer — it's the perfect size for my Wacom tablet and a few small notebooks. The legs are sturdy and beautifully built. The top is made of an anti-scratch material, which is perfect for my toddler to play on. Assembly was easy in under 30 minutes with two people." —Bryan F.

    Get it from Amazon for $169.99.
