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.
