With the month capping off on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, November is the best time of year to find big-ticket items like furniture at massive discounts. While furniture is one of the priciest items you can buy for your home, the pieces themselves are not always the biggest. Sometimes, the smaller the better, and when it comes to saving space, more streamlined pieces of furniture with multipurpose use are a strategic way to make the most out of tight corners. Plus, it means more room for holiday decor, like artificial Christmas trees, which are already marked down ahead of Black Friday.

For the best space-saving furniture items, we searched early Black Friday deals and found ten clever items marked down up to 69 percent off from Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Wayfair. Save money on furniture that will enhance your living space while giving you the flexibility you need, like smart sleeper futons and clip-on tables—on sale with prices starting at only $25.

50 Modern Living Room Ideas You’ll LoveJanis Nicolay

Defined by clean lines, natural materials and minimalist decor, modern home design is one of the most well-known interior design styles. In the living room, the aesthetic translates to a space that feels airy and uncluttered, yet cozy and welcoming. Here, we’ve rounded up dreamy modern living room ideas that showcase steal-worthy design trends and functional layouts for casual family time.

Whether you’re designing a family-friendly living room or looking for small living room ideas, there are many design avenues that can be taken to achieve a fresh and elevated space. Sleek sky-high shelving, custom fireplaces and grand architectural elements can create a modern living environment filled with both visual interest and functionality. The right accessories, like stylish area rugs, colorful accent chairs or statement lighting fixtures can quickly modernize a simple interior. Patterned wallpaper, pops of colorful fabric and a fresh coat of paint can all result in a modern, chic and inviting space.

As you scroll, you’ll find there’s something for everyone — even if your design style strays a little more traditional, rustic, boho or coastal. There are endless ways to infuse a touch of modern design into your living room design, no matter the overall feel of the home. For those designing an apartment living room, we’ve sprinkled in plenty of renter-friendly ideas (think artwork, peel-and-stick wallpaper and ultra-modern furniture).

Decorate Sky-High Shelving

Not only do these striking shelves take advantage of vertical space, they showcase collectibles, books and artwork and infuse color into the interior. Here, JAM Interior Design uses a mix of modern, traditional and vintage pieces for a curated look.

This furniture trend is the ultimate trick for small spaces

  • October 21, 2023

The Y2K revival trend continues to reign over all facets of lifestyle as new (or should that be old?) micro trends of the era keep popping up. One of the noughties interior styles that we’re most excited about having a resurgence is the transparent furniture trend. Which as it happens is a great small living room idea to maximise on a small-scale living space.

It might be a retro trend, but it still manages to look super modern. Plus the use of clear glass, acrylic or perspex in this trend is a surefire way for making a small living room look bigger.

See-through furniture isn’t the easiest trend to style – things can get tacky real fast with these Y2K trends. However, we’ve spoken to design experts to find out how to get the look just right, and the best pieces to snap up now to nail the look at home.

The noughties-inspired trend was made popular in the early 2000s with the release of the Kartell Louis Ghost Armchair, sold at Heal’s for £294, which is now considered a design classic.

‘Whilst transparent acrylic furniture has been around since the 1960 and 70s, it was Phillipe Starck’s Louis Ghost Chair that really propelled the trend into people’s homes in the early noughties,’ says Lucy Mather, design expert from Arighi Bianchi.

Sabina Miller, buying director at Heal’s, agrees, ‘Some of the most iconic furniture designers of the last century have paid homage to this trend, from the iconic Noguchi coffee table designed by Isamu Noguchi in 1944, to the iconic Louis Ghost chair designed by Philippe Starck for Kartell in 2002.’

25 Midcentury Modern Furniture Pieces That Will Always Be in Style

  • August 15, 2023

“Hearst Magazines and Yahoo may earn commission or revenue on some items through these links.”

If you’re in the market for retro-feeling yet timeless home design, perhaps no style is as enduring–or as worth the investment–as the best midcentury modern furniture. This period of design, which began post-World War II and continued into the 1960s, is identifiable by its soft-edges and functional style. At the time, craftspeople, architects, and furniture designers were looking for a way to create new and innovative pieces that leaned minimalistic, using materials like wood, vinyl, and glass to create organically-shaped furniture. Rather than the angular shapes and straight lines that were seen before, midcentury modern furniture embraced funky seating, rounder tables, and unusual shapes. This era of design has continued to be popular today in part because of its balance of utility and eye-catching details.

Whether you’re in the market for a new comfortable couch or an angular bookshelf to store your coffee table books, midcentury modern furniture may be the best choice for you. These days, many luxury furniture brands create pieces that replicate the style, with a fresh twist. If you’re committed to the genre, you can also find iconic designs from the time period that are still being made today, such as the Eames Lounge Chair. No matter which room in your home you’re designing, there is a midcentury modern piece that will fit perfectly.

Here, shop the 25 best midcentury modern furniture that will instantly elevate your home.
