Without robbing the bank, it is possible to furnish your home with pieces of high style and quality. Apartment Therapy Marketplace is full of mid-century finds for sale. See what picks you should splurge on, save or steal.

Putting your feet up is one of life’s little pleasures. If there was ever a reason to drop almost $200 on a foot rest, this would be the one. The classic mid-century ottoman has shed its old, faded vinyl covering for a lovely blue woven upholstery fabric. Thanks to seller and refurbisher Black House Upholstery, the foam top was also updated, along with plastic glides on the bottom and beautifully finished with covered button and piping detailing. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $175.

House Candy L.A., the seller of this mid-century dresser markets it also as a changing table. And it is indeed a smart purchase for any parent-to-be looking to save money. Add a changing table pad, fill the top drawers with diapers and watch this Danish modern piece grow with your child. The walnut finish is timeless and the dovetail joinery will outlast any new baby furniture you have to assemble yourself. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $549.

What’s not to love about the airy CB2 heather grey chairs? The design is a callback to retro times but with a fresh spin. It’s no longer available on the retailer’s site where it sold for $150 a chair, so being able to grab two for $200 is a steal; you’d be foolish not to jump on it. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $200.
