8 Affordable Statement Pieces Straight From AT House Tours
We can’t all live in a beautiful Airstream, but it is possible to steal some products from house tours. Even better: seeing products in people’s actual homes can sometimes be way more inspiring than the lifestyle shots included on retailer’s websites. Here are eight inexpensive home buys you can get right now–without breaking the bank.
These chairs come in a set of two, since they’re technically intended for a dining room set. However, separated, they can be great accent chairs for extra seating in a pinch, and work anywhere you don’t have room for a full-sized armchair, like in this Kansas City arts and crafts bungalow.
White Wire Larkin Molded Armchairs Set Of 2, $127 at World Market
You don’t have to live in a 385 square foot NYC apartment to have a room that needs a coffee table but is short on space. An acrylic coffee table helps the center of the room still feel open, while providing a spot for take-out containers or laptops to perch.
Clear Acrylic Coffee Table, $216 at Overstock
Bar carts are hardly a new trend, but we like that this one has lots of great details, like three tiers of storage and mirrored surfaces, all at a good price point. You can also find a use for it in just about any room in the house: it would be great in the bathroom for storing towels, or in the bedroom as a beautiful vanity.
Gold Cole 3-Tier Rolling Bar Cart, $170 at World Market
If you don’t have a lot of space for lamps, like in this small rental, a Target lamp with 3 separate heads is a great (and chic) way to provide plenty of light.
Project 62 3-Head Metal Globe Floor Lamp, $124 at Target
Mirrors are another way to add openness to a space, but you don’t have to opt for a super pricey framed option to get some personality. While the exact asymmetrical mirror from this house tour is out of stock, a less expensive, similar one is still available. The rounded corners keep it visually interesting with a minimal footprint, but its also tall enough to be functional.
Frameless Wall Mirror, $90 at West Elm
Futons are incredibly handy for homes without guest bedrooms. Even better it looks great as a couch when it’s not in use–and even better if its under $300. (Yup, you read that right.) Just look at how high-end it looks in this Hell’s Kitchen home.
Novogratz Brittany Sofa Futon, $256 at Amazon
Behold, the ever-adaptable acrylic coffee table once again! In this bright and cheery apartment, it provides visible storage for books and magazines, as well as two poufs that provide extra seating for get-togethers that can be neatly stacked when not in use.
Banana Leaves Floor Pillow by CatyArte, $80 at Society6
Something has to be really good to earn space in this tiny renovated Airstream. Like this Target lamp that brings sculptural elements and natural colors to the space while still managing to be useful.
