Smart Style on Budget: Textured Modern Living Room Under $1800

Pin it button big

I'm always looking for pieces with great style that fit a slim budget. Were I to refit my own living room with completely new pieces (though I'm a vintage girl at heart), it might go something like this:

1. "Polyglot IV" by David Dauncey 30" x 30", World Market on sale $80.99*

2. RANARP Floor Reading Lamp, IKEA $59.99

3. White-Dipped Salad Bowl World Market, $24.99

4. SODERHAMN Three-Seat Section in Samsa Dark Gray IKEA $449

5. Design By Conran Fen Cast Metal-Top Accent Table JCPenney, $89 on clearance

6. Threshold Mixed Metal Coffee Table Target, $109.65

7. Basket-Weave Jute Rug, 6' x 9', World Market $127.49 on sale

8. Teterete Red Diamond Runner, Urban Outfitters $199 + 20% off

9. Mid-Century Rocker, Land of Nod $599

10. Magical Thinking Tulum Pillow, Urban Outfitters $49

GRAND TOTAL: $1,757.11

*One caveat: I'd paint an original painting myself, or buy one off an artist friend, but for store bought? You can't beat it.
