Here are some simple furniture + design ideas for your living room…
Chunky knit blanket
It doesn’t matter if you’re laying on a couch made of concrete, a chunky knit blanket can turn any room into a cozy retreat. They’re a bit pricey (upwards of $300 for a king-sized one), but it’s sure to keep you comfy all winter long.

Giant star light
A sort of contemporary take on the chandelier, these giant star lights are a way to illuminate your room with style. They look great as hanging decorations by themselves, but they’re especially magical at night time when they’re the only light in the room!
The large ones are quite expensive, but Wayfair sells a slightly smaller model for only $20.
Tribal print rug
These can add a bit of exotic flair to an otherwise bland home. They look just as stylish in a traditional New England cottage as they do in a bohemian apartment loft. So versatile!
I like this ivory on beige design from Tiwari: https://www.amazon.com/Tiwari-Home-Tribal-Pattern-Rectangular/dp/B07TSTNF82
Burnt orange/earth tones sectional
I’d love to have this one in my house. With its stylish midcentury shape and that amazing burnt orange upholstery, sitting on it feels like it’s 1971 and I’m hanging out with the Rolling Stones after a show.
Wayfair comes through again with an affordable version of this couch:
Candle-glow wall sconce
The wall sconce is back in fashion, and I’m totally here for it! Although I wouldn’t recommend using real candleholders (too dangerous), there are plenty of great lightbulb sconces out there.
I actually just came across these ones at Urban Outfitters that I love. They’re kind of like Ray Eames meets Edgar Allen Poe: https://www.urbanoutfitters.com/shop/anders-wall-sconce-accessory?category=SEARCHRESULTS&color=040
