That Look Expensive

Outfitting your home is no small task. And it certainly comes at a cost. You don't want to cheap out when buying major furniture pieces like your sofa, dining table or your bed—those should be investments that can stand both time and the abuse you'll put them through. But thankfully, there are pieces out there that look like they cost a lot but thankfully don't. We scoured the market for handsome design finds that are surprisingly inexpensive.

Accent Furniture

We don't like the name "poufs," but these sturdy upholstered cubes are great to have on hand. The serve as seating options, foot rests and can even double as a side table. And they're usually pretty affordable.
