Faux Wood Table Lamp

Entryway table with white lamp and fern fronds.

Emily White

“When scoping out the new collection with Studio McGee, I knew immediately that the beautiful wood-based lamp and the woven box were coming home with me. Beyond their amazing quality and wallet-friendly prices, I love the attention to detail on these items. The beautiful tapered shade on the lamp is very on-trend, and the woven box has the cutest little leather clasp—the perfect accessories for my traditional-inspired entryway.” — Emily White, blogger

Shelburne Wood Nightstand

“Wooden accent furniture with curved legs is typically pricey, so I was thrilled to find these cute nightstands for my main bedroom at Target. The transitional style of the nightstand works well with many styles of décor, and this one is large enough that it can be used alongside a taller bed frame or even as an accent table in a living room. Spray paint the small drawer knob, or swap it out with something more ornate to give the piece a unique feel.” — Kate Dreyer, blogger

Thin Single Picture Frame

Gallery wall next to large rattan chair.

Lidia Salazar

“I was thrilled to find these alabaster oak frames at Target. I have been wanting to do a gallery wall of family pictures for some time, but I needed to stay on a tight budget. These frames have a modern, thin wood in the most perfect oak color and already come with a sleek white mat. The price point is amazing for this high-end professional look.” — Lidia Salazar, Instagrammer

Esters Wood Armchair

“You've most likely seen this chair before—because designers love it. It's one of those pieces that pulls way above its price point. The style, quality, and materials are really sharp, and let me just tell you, $300 for a good size, comfortable, upholstered arm chair is a great deal. They continue to offer this chair in more and more upholstery options, which is also exciting. If it’s out of stock in the fabric you desire, don't fear: Target is good about restocking this piece. Just keep an eye on it.” — Megan Hopp, designer

Accent Drink Table

Gray chair in living room.

Alaina Kaczmarski

“When we set out to design our new family room, we opted to get a cozy sectional and an ottoman for maximum comfort and safety for our two little boys. The problem is that once we are nestled into the corner of the sectional to watch a movie, we have nowhere to safely set a drink within reach. When I spotted this charming wooden drink table at Target, I immediately added it to my cart. It's a versatile style and the perfect size to easily move around the space wherever anyone needs a tabletop.” — Alaina Kaczmarski, co-founder, The Everygirl

Channel Stitch Velvet Quilt

Rust colored quilt on white bedding.

Jessie Ruane

“My favorite Target find is my rust quilt. Target sells tons of these, and I think they're an amazing way to add a pop of color, texture, and coziness to your bed. I still sleep with my comforter and use my quilt when we need extra warmth. It gives my bed that layered, ‘super cozy’ look and feel. It's like a fancy hotel bed.” — Jessie Ruane, Instagrammer

Crosby Schoolhouse Desk Lamp

“The schoolhouse trend may be past its peak, but I can’t seem to quit this little desk lamp, which I snagged at Target for a mere $35. It’s the kind of piece that I feel like I could bring with me wherever I go. It would fit in nearly any home and shine in nearly any room. And while it’s not a true antique, it looks like it could be—a little piece of history that lived a life long before I did.” — Sarah Jacobson, Instagrammer

Shaker Coffee Table

Living room with black table, two ottomans, and brown leather couch.

Stefana Silber

“In my living room, pictured above, you’ll see a Shaker coffee table in black from the Hearth and Hand collection. Next to it are the two upholstered cubes from the Studio McGee collection. In the background you can see the table lamp from the same collection. These two collections are inspired by high-end design, but their pieces are affordable and accessible to the general public. I’ve also incorporated small accessories from the Studio McGee line: The round leather tray on the ottoman and the woven bowl on the coffee table. And yes, another Target piece is the floor lamp next to the sofa! It’s a great alternative to expensive designer lamps for under $100.” — Stefana Silber, blogger

Artificial Leafy Wreath

“I love fresh wreaths, but they can be hard to care for, and the best-looking ones are expensive. This pretty, simple faux wreath from Target is a perfect addition to any door as we transition to spring. I added a black and white grosgrain striped ribbon to mine for an extra punch of personality.”  — Kate Dreyer, blogger

Wood and Cane Accent Table

This table I have in my own home and recommend to clients all the time. It’s a really nice size, slightly oversized but not too big. The shelf makes for really practical storage—I use my table as a corner storage piece in my bathroom to house folded towels on the shelf and special toiletries on the table top.” — Megan Hopp, designer
