Sofa

Usually, an inexpensive sofa lacks arms or comes with a bunch of annoying throw pillows. This sleek number anchors your living room for less than a grand and won’t give you one more thing to arrange.

Rug

A graphic David Hicks-style printed cotton rug can underscore your living room with a bold, dirt-concealing pattern for less than $70. The round rugs from this shop are cute, too, and can add an unexpected shape.

Coffee Table

A crimson finish gives this metal coffee table big personality. A small price tag gives you little reason to resist. Exposed nuts and bolts add a little industrial chic.

Floor Lamp

Lighting might be the most important mood-definer in a room. For that reason, splurge a little on a lamp that can adjust at the touch of a finger. You can find a cheaper lamp, but you’ll pay for it in the long run with its flimsy shade and wonky wiring.

Side Table

Having one organic shape in your room is going to enliven it in the way that a flower arrangement does -- the unpredictable curves and warm tones of the wood bring a touch of nature inside. This tripod table is a great value and a versatile addition to your furniture wardrobe.

Branch Side Table
$179
Available at West Elm

Art in Residence

Affordable reproduction prints are an easy way to fill empty wall space. The popular Etsy.com shop Papermoth Illustration has a low price offshoot selling prints of this artist’s original work for a fraction of the price. Here, $20 gets you a 13- by 19-inch archival print of a vintage WWII poster that seems especially appropriate in this economy.

Keep Calm and Carry On
$20
Available at Cut & Paste Print
