A trendy glass coffee table to complement any furniture you decide to interior decorate alongside it. Plus, it’ll show off any rug or flooring underneath that you don’t want to cover up!


Promising review: “I wanted a modern coffee table that would let you see the design of the rug. Perfect. Came well packaged (given that it is glass) and is super durable tempered glass. We have two big dogs, and I’m confident it would hold up if they bumped into it.” —Janetta

Promising review: “Let me start by saying I was VERY leery buying something I’ve never seen in person. I also thought the back was going to be too low, but it’s not. Based on the reviews I dove in. I’ve had this couch almost two years, and it’s still beautiful! Its super comfortable to sit on and sleeps really well when you take the cushions off. I have pets (three cats and two dogs) so hair is a given. I get a damp towel and wipe it; all the hair comes off! My husband left a drool spot while sleeping, and I just wiped it off with a towel and water. The cushions are flippable, so if you favor a certain side of the couch, you can swap them around to keep the wear even.” —Andrea

Price: $1,350 (available in five colors)


A velvet vanity swivel stool because you can never have too many extra spots to take a seat around the house. And velvet is always a yes.

A rustic salvaged wood-inspired entertainment center so your TV and gadgets can sport a beachy ~vibe~. It’s got plenty of shelves and cabinets to hold your DVDs, games, and even room decor. Why settle for industrial and boring when you can have this?!

the tv stand


Promising review: “Absolutely love this entertainment center!!! I was skeptical on the price; I thought for sure it wouldn’t be good quality wood or materials considering the price of other entertainment centers. This is a beautiful piece. Solid wood for the heaviest part in a good way —  not a bunch of cheap pressed wood or flimsy materials used. It’s very large and fits our 75″ TV perfectly! It’s just what we wanted. Also super easy to assemble; it all comes mostly put together. Which I was shocked by as well. There are literally like four bolts to install, and tools come with it. This is one of those lifetime pieces of furniture. I plan on keeping this for years to come.” —Jamie

A bedroom with a bed that has a metal bedframe


Promising review: This bed is beautiful. It’s very simple, but that is what we wanted. It took about 30 minutes to put together with two of us, and the instructions were easy to follow. The boxes came a little beat up, but none of the pieces were damaged. Love that it comes with two height options. We chose the higher of the two, but kept the parts to make it lower if we choose to at a later time. It’s white, but not an overly bright white. Fits in perfect with the farmhouse theme.” —Tami

Reviewer's photo of the sofa in the color Yellow


Promising review: “Love my beautiful bright yellow couch! It’s everything I wanted! The color is true to the pictures on Wayfair’s website — real yellow. The fabric is soft to the touch, very nice. The couch is firm. You won’t sink inside it. The storage underneath is huge. The bed will accommodate a tall person and over 400 pounds. I put this couch on my loft, and it fit just perfectly! I received it yesterday and can’t get off it!” —Esther

Price: $1,799.99 (originally $1,899.99, available in five colors)

Reviewer's photo of the jewelry armoire in the color Rustic Brown, open


Promising review: A surprisingly heavy piece, but it’s perfect for our space. My fiancé 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: $234.99 (originally $263.88, available in three colors)
