This metal shelf unit is the perfect option for displaying plants (whatup cacti lovers?), photos, or anything else you want to show off.

Or you can use it as extra storage. Although the metallic finish might seem out of place, trust, it fits beautifully in any space; really, it all depends on what you choose to fill it with.

Lack Side Table

Price: $15.99

These Lack side tables are. My. Life. When I lived in my tiny apartment (which didn't even technically have a living room), I used these as coffee and end tables.

They're super inexpensive and simple, and small enough to fit anywhere. Plus, you can use them as pretty much anything. Coffee tables, end tables, side tables; or stack them up and make some kind of shelf situation. Whatever you want. These things are adaptable.
