Even if you’re completely dissatisfied with the current look of your living room, simply implementing a new sectional or a beautiful handwoven rug will give the space an obvious transformation — and visitors will surely notice. So waste no time, and check out these fabulous finds while they’re on sale.

The Carmel is one of Pottery Barn's most customizable sofa options, as you can choose among six different widths, two seat cushion styles, and numerous fabrics and colors. It has a clean, almost beachy design, like something you'd find in a Hamptons home. Its square arms are wide and make resting your own arms an easy feat, and its cushions are neither too soft nor too firm.

Add texture without making your surroundings look too busy by placing this handwoven rug in the bedroom, living room, or home office. It has a unique pebbled weave, as well as two fringed edges for a boho look. These features, combined with the sandy color options, would look great in similarly neutral-toned rooms. There are lots of things you could call this rug. Earthy? Granola? Perhaps. Boring? Definitely not.

The ideal sofa for hosting guests, the Pearce sectional fits nicely into corners while still maintaining a softly rounded look.

Aside from the fact that it's partially made from recycled plastic bottles, this handwoven rug is cool because it has a slightly reflective surface (hence the name "Prism"). If you have a room that's monochromatic and could use some depth, the indigo shade will work wonders. And because of its flat weave pattern, this floor covering is super easy to vacuum and will withstand heavy foot traffic.

What impressed our Best List writer most about the Jake sofa is its timeless appearance, which can largely be attributed to its leather material. The classy leather has a slightly worn-in look, so you won't feel hesitant about sinking into its comfy cushions. The leather on this piece is also designed to lighten and soften even more over time, creating a homey piece that's unique to your household.

It might seem like a bad idea to put a rug in the bathroom, kitchen or dining room, as these are places where spills and drops frequently occur. But the Heather rug is the ideal addition to such rooms because it's vacuumable and much easier to take care of than long-fibered alternatives. This rug is also lightweight, so you can even shake it out from time to time. And its inconsistent texture will make any snags or imperfections virtually unnoticeable.

How can we not rate the Big Sur sectional a 10 out of 10 on nappability when it's twice as wide as the average sofa? You can truly sprawl out on this piece without worrying about your limbs falling off the sides. What's more, steel interior springs give the seat cushions a subtly firm feel, providing you with lots of support. You won't sink in, but you can relax nonetheless.

Who doesn't love a chunky knit sweater? If you can't get enough of a good cable knit around your torso, I'm excited to tell you that you can now have one on your floor, too. This rug features an ultra-thick braided pattern that's just perfect for the chilly days ahead. It's handwoven from wool and jute, which provide a soft feeling underneath your feet instead of the scratchiness found among lower quality rugs.
