If you’re a certifiable binge-watcher, couch potato, or homebody, you probably spend a lot of time in your living room. And while we’ve already explored the world of cheap-but-expensive–looking apartment décor, bathroom décor, kitchen décor, and bedroom décor, we’ve now moved on to the living room. Below, find everything from a multi-tiered coffee table to a velvety pillow.

Armen Living LCSUCHWACH Summer Chair in Charcoal Fabric

We just love the silhouette on this chair — it almost looks like a pet.

BERTERI Ashtray Lips

A very fun set of lips as an ashtray — great even if you’ve never touched a cigarette.

Umbra Hub Wall Mirror With Rubber Frame

An on-trend circular mirror to make your space seem bigger and brighter.

Umbra Estique Over-the-Door Multi-Use Organizer

If your entryway and living room are one and the same, we recommend this extremely affordable coat rack.

Goodpick Large Cotton Rope Basket

A nice basket for magazines or dog toys that you don’t want just strewn about.

Ryan Rove Ashley Oval Two-Tier Glass Coffee Table

In the right apartment — maybe one a bit more normcore than this — the tiered glass coffee table would make quite the statement.

Brightech Gabriel LED Reading and Floor Lamp

Strategist writer Billy Domineau says this lamp “has a quiet, understated majesty and a three-step dimmer.”

The Labyrinth by Saul Steinberg

First published in 1960 and long out of print until it was revived last fall, this book collects a broad swath of Steinberg’s drawings, with an introduction by Nicholson Baker and afterword by Harold Rosenberg. It wouldn’t go wrong on any coffee table.

Now House by Jonathan Adler Miami Decorative Tray

A good spot to throw your keys, some gum, and postcards, from Jonathan Adler’s standout home collection on Amazon.

Boy Smells St. Al Candle

Our pick for the next status candle has notes of sandalwood, clay, clove flower, oud, and ylang-ylang.

Vale Arbor Acrylic Tray

We like a clear tray for keeping coffee-table trappings organized.

Rivet Geometric Modern Glass and Metal End Table

A vintage-looking brass side table to keep by the reading chair.

HOMFA Nesting Tables

Two Scandi-inspired nesting end tables. Keep them together to make a space-saving coffee table, or separate them for two coordinating end tables.

Raw Sugar Art Studio Rolling Stones / Stevie Wonder 1972 Akron Concert Poster

The Rolling Stones and Stevie Wonder in concert was a moment to commemorate.

Ballerina Dish

This jadeite little lady can collect all your odds and ends while looking just a bit vintage.

Arus Highlands Collection Tartan Plaid Design Throw Blanket Off-White 60” X 80”

A cozy throw blanket in a neutral shade that matches pretty much any style of home décor.

Rotot Pouf Cover

A versatile and affordable pouf (similar to one that Amy Sedaris owns) that can serve as an extra seat, a side table, or a foot rest.

Costa Farms Live Indoor Strelitzia Nicolai

A plant that will breathe fresh air into a space (literally).

Umbra Bolo Wall and Ceiling Planter

And if you don’t have a ton of floor space, these plant hangers are great to suspend your new plant friends from the ceiling.

Dongliflower Natural Pampas Grass

Or go with a perennial, no-maintenance favorite: pampas grass.

Now House by Jonathan Adler Small Cloud Pottery Vase

An elegant vase option from Jonathan Adler that would make bodega flowers look nice.

Rivet Glass Ball Metal Table Lamp With Bulb

A “floating” lamp with a yellow bulb that casts a warm, flattering glow.

Unique Loom Solo Solid Shag Gray Rug

A five-by-eight–foot classic shag carpet that you can really sink your toes into.
