Promising review: "I wanted a desk I could use on my deck now that the weather is nice without it being a permanent fixture. This desk is perfect. Nice looking, compact, folds up easily, light enough to move easily from place to place while also being remarkably sturdy, put together with very clear obstructions in a matter of minutes, and the best part may be this final instruction: 'You are so awesome, congratulations you get a new desk.' Made me smile." —DMC

Promising review: "Oh m'gosh! Do I love this coffee table!! It is perfect for keeping my living room uncluttered. Puzzle books, magazines, pencils and pens, laptop and power cord, and TV remotes are all securely put away at the end of the day. I chose the finish with the beachy look and it looks really good. I love that you can lift the top without having to remove everything on it. Best of all, I put it together by myself. I was a little intimidated at first as I've never done any furniture assembly. I'm 70-years-old and a widow. VOILÀ!! I called a neighbor at the very end of the assembly to hold the top for me while I attached it to the rest of the table. I love it!" —Kathy C

Promising review: "This mirror is cute and modern. It looks very expensive. It's good quality. I set it up horizontal ways and it adds a lot of interest to an otherwise blank wall." —Brittttttttt1
Get it from Urban Outfitters from $129+ (available in two sizes)
Promising review: "First off, I'd recommend ordering nonslip rug liners at the same time you order this rug, it's pretty slippery on tile/wood floors.
The size is perfect for what I was looking for. I specifically wanted a rug to keep on the sides of my bed, as I have wood floors in my house and wanted something soft to step on near the bed. I have a queen size bed and it is a great size for keeping next to the bed. I imagine it would look great next to smaller beds, too.
What really was unexpected, was actually how SOFT this rug is. Like, obviously it's fuzzy and I was expecting it to feel nice, but this is just beyond. If you ever shop at Walmart and feel the furry fluffy rugs they sell there, they have a pretty rough synthetic fiber feel to them. But, this one is so soft and nice.
Only downside I've noticed is in high-traffic areas (such as right by my bed) the fur does get flat after a while. However, after a good vacuum and fluffing and it comes back pretty well. Overall, I'd definitely recommend it if you are looking for a small/medium-sized runner rug!" —Savannah

Urbansize is a woman-owned small business out of London that makes floating bedside tables.
Promising review: "Absolutely love these nightstands, they are perfect and just what we were looking for! We have a bed that has storage drawers underneath so we have been on the hunt for floating nightstands and we are so happy with this purchase. We also have a small space and the large size of these fit so well in our bedroom. They arrived within three days (I live in Canada), great quality and easy to mount onto the wall. Quick note to customers overseas, although the shipping is free, you will likely have to pay customs/duties. (I paid around $50 Canadian.)" —Sabrina Loria

Promising review: "This is a great price for the furniture you get! I have little to no building experience I was able to build table in about 30 minutes! I can't wait to style it!" —Taylor
Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in six colors)
Promising review: "I really loved the amount of storage. It did take me about two hours to assemble, but it was worth it! I love the simple design, and for the price I think overall it is a good headboard/ bed frame." —Krystal Rodriguez
Get it from Amazon for $169.99+ (available in full–king and three colors)
Promising review: "These are quite beautiful. They are ivory in person, and have two orange stitches, as some reviewers mentioned, running vertically along the drapes, but it's certainly not overpowering or a "focal point." The embroidery is quite beautiful, giving them a very boho luxe feel." —LeaS
Get it from Anthropologie for $108+ (available in three colors and four sizes)
Promising review: "Nothing to really have to put together: Just put the cart wheels on and that's not hard at all! It folds up into a cart right out of the box, and folds down into a portable price of kit that you can easily take out onto the patio for more prep space in your outdoor cooking or BBQ area or out at the fire pit for drinks service or really whatever you need anywhere in the house or outdoors. I had no problems rolling it around on the patio, but I did have to carry out to the fire pit to unfold it and then take the cooler out there. The wheels are just a tad bit too small to roll on the lawn ... But that doesn't diminish its creative design or usefulness for literally anything you need counter space for wherever you need it!!!" —Jay Mac

Promising review: "This little table fits perfectly next to our couch, and fits a coffee mug and glass of water at the same time. It's very lightweight but it still sturdy. Perfect for what I was looking for!" —cat

Promising review: "I LOVE THIS PEEL-AND-STICK WALLPAPER! I used this to add an accent wall in my bedroom and I’m in love! definitely recommend using a squeegee to smooth it out and lots of patience! Wasn't too hard to install but then again my handyman dad helped me so it worked out! I used five rolls for the entire wall." —jeannette

Promising review: "I was skeptical about these but they are great!! My husband has an easy time installing these and they are very sturdy. I love the "invisible" feature! Will be purchasing more for sure! These were a great choice for us as we have TONS of books but not a lot of space that is conducive to traditional bookshelves." —Maddy St J
Get it from Amazon for $11.50+ (available in two sizes, two colors, and also in a set of three)
Promising review: "Wow I can't believe I was able to put it all together by myself. I’m not handy and it was easy instructions, super manageable, and very pretty when I was done. The only thing that I wished I had known before I started was I didn't need to go 86 inches from the floor. There were about 6 inches I could’ve lowered it to. But it was my first time ever using anything like this in my closet and next time I’ll know. Happy, happy, happy with this product" —Holly
Get it from Amazon for $144.02+ (available in two sizes and two colors)
Promising review: "It is just the right size. Love that it is a three-way lamp so I can add brightness if necessary. It doesn't take up a lot of room. Provides perfect lighting in the early morning so I don't have to turn on the bright overhead light. I also like that it turns on with just a touch." —Ruth K.

Promising review: "I have been eyeing these poufs for months — but absolutely fell in LOVE with this design. The lighter camel color matches my decor perfectly. With Prime, my pouf casing arrived in two days. The material is thick, does not have a smell (this was a concern for a lot of similar companies I had been considering), and I am so pleased with the color. I stuffed mine with 5–7 old throw blankets, a twin comforter, two old throw pillows, old scarves, and it STILL could hold more! Beautiful solution to hide/store linens you don't need. I am thrilled with my purchase and can't wait to use this as my reading nook!" —Heather Kleber

Promising review: "Perfect size and great price, in comparison to other ones we’ve looked at. So far it's held up great in our newly renovated bathroom. I highly recommend" —Trixie
Get it from Amazon for $75.99 for a 30" round mirror (also available in a gold color).
Promising review: "These are very easy to set up. The metal pops into place and there are little white Velcro straps that keep the metal support in place. They look really clean and the canvas seems to be good quality. The leather handles are fake and kind of a soft texture, but I prefer that they’re matte and soft and not shiny and fake looking. Definitely worth the price! Couldn't find anything else in comparison for this price." —Anthony
Get it from Amazon for $23.79+ (available in three sizes and six colors).
Promising review: "I used these for short term rentals in an older structure. It gave the bathrooms a clean, neat space for amenities and simple decor. You can hang hand towels and washcloths. Super easy to install (well, my husband made it look easy). I bought a set for each bathroom — they come is different colors, but are all pretty." —Jane Churchill
Get it from Amazon for $19.79+ (available in seven colors).
Promising review: "I spent days hunting for the perfect bar cart for my space! This one fit the bill, but I'm always hesitant about furniture on Amazon. This couldn't have worked out better. Came in perfect condition, is easy to assemble, looks gorgeous, and has been working well for weeks now!" –Jax
Get it from Amazon for $129.99.
Promising review: "We bought this to help create more space in our room. The TV mount is great for our 32-inch TV. it is able to move with easy so we can adjust with no problem. Just make sure when you mount this it is in the studs of the wall. We almost made that mistake but grateful we caught it. Also easy to set up but better with two people!" —Caeley Jardell

Promising review: "Easy to install. I love how it completed the deigner look I was envisioning." —Janet M Ramos
Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in three finishes)
Promising review: "Such a fan of these lights that I’ve ordered them three times. No, nothing has been wrong with them to have had to order more — in fact they’ve held up really well. The only issue I have is that when I saw everyone loves them I mean everyone, including squirrels. Do yourself a favor and add some critter repellent to your order too. Otherwise, they’re perfect." —K Richey
Get it from Amazon for $15.41+ (available in four sizes and seven colors).
Promising review: "Very happy with this striking blown glass lamp. Great quality, nice source of tiny indirect light. Matches some similar larger lamps I have that were five times the price." —Stephen Selke
Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in eight colors)
Promising review: "So pleased with this basket! I was a little worried at first because it was even bigger than I expected. But it holds all my equipment perfectly, leaving room for a full-sized roller and weights to come. I followed the instructions with pillows and then steamed, too. Worth the time and effort for the end result!
I was persuaded to give this basket a chance when another review said it looks high end. They were right! It feels sturdy and does not feel cheap at all. Very happy and look forward to having it for years to come." —Amazon Customer
