There’s never a bad time to modernize your space, and it doesn’t have to be a major renovation. Just one piece of furniture, no matter how small, can turn a room into something more suited to your life and style.
I’m a big fan of Mid-Century and Minimalist pieces, especially pieces with straight lines and warm tones. But, I also work from home, so I want ultra-comfortable furniture that I can blend in after a day of working at my desk.

3. Hodedah kitchen island
An island-shaped cabinet, whether permanent or temporary, enhances the feel of any kitchen, even a small one when placed strategically. This Hodedah rolling kitchen island is on wheels, making it a great option for moving around or pushing against a wall as needed.

4. Vasagle Lowell bedside table
I think the whole Vasagle line at Amazon is great, and I can speak from personal experience – a close friend of mine actually bought several rooms to furnish his apartment. The look of each room is both modern and warm, likely due to the textured wood and rich colors.
The Lowell nightstand includes a slatted door and an open shelf (or two, if you’re using the adjustable one behind the door). There is plenty of room for a small speaker, a stack of books, and a salt lamp. Depending on what stain you like, this nightstand has a contemporary or rustic appeal.

5. Homall reclining chair
This comfortable and stylish recliner is ideal for relaxing and lounging. It can be a stand-alone chair in a living room or combined with identical chairs in a theater hall. The seat tilts at three angles, allowing you to stay comfortable while watching TV, playing, reading or taking a nap.
The fabric is also easy to clean, so you don’t have to worry about greasy fingers on your buttered popcorn. Take a traditional style with black or spice up your space with a bright cherry red.

6. Zinus Shalini Upholstered Platform Bed Frame
One of the most visible signs that I became a real adult was when I bought a bed frame and stopped sleeping on a mattress on the floor. Not only is my back much happier, but my bedroom looks so much better.
If you’re up for an upgrade or looking for a frame and headboard, this chic and contemporary upholstered frame and headboard set is perfect. It’s affordable and durable, and reviews say assembly is straightforward. Critics also say the frame holds up well over time.

7. Walker Edison Dresser
A horizontal dresser can double as a bookcase, TV stand, or even a baby changing table if you don’t have a lot of space.
Crafted from solid pine, this dresser features six drawers and features a caramel or walnut finish. Reviewers confirm that the drawers work well, slide smoothly, and the product is built to last. There are also three-drawer and two-drawer coordinating pieces.

8. Manhattan Comfort Liberty TV stand
Finding a media console that can also hold your gaming systems and speakers is a surprisingly difficult task, especially if you have a larger TV. However, this retro-chic console is over 5 feet wide.
With 11 different color and finish combinations, the overall vibe of this TV stand can range from contemporary to 70s glam to very yellow. Its front has an open side with shelves and a closed side with cabinet doors, so you can show photos or plants while simultaneously hiding additional cords and remotes. The stand legs also add a nice Mid-Century touch.

10. Zinus Jen wooden dining table
Dining tables with clean lines and a lighter wood finish are not always easy to find, despite the recent popularity of minimalism. But look no further: this 47-inch solid pine wood table comfortably seats four, but seats six. You can get it in three different finishes: natural pine, espresso, and the vibrant looking white table top with natural stain legs.
Reviewers say setup is easy and are incredibly impressed with the customer service. Apparently the company “includes three greeting cards to send to the people you love, just to say hello.” It’s a great idea!
