For game nights and gatherings

What we love

The modular design and accompanying ottoman make this couch adaptable to almost every design and room. Plus, you can take the sections apart and put them back together to fully customize your space.

What we don’t love

Reviewers say the seven boxes this couch comes in can be a tad cumbersome to navigate, even if the end result is totally worth it. Additionally, some reviewers also reported the couch slid around on hardwood floors until they placed a rug underneath.

For traditional elegance

This Birch Lane couch, with its distinctive silhouette, is not only a piece of furniture, but also a piece of art that will make a statement. Its rolled arms, button tufting details, and turned legs make it an instant winner for any traditionally-decorated space.

What we love

The couch’s foam cushioning and premium top-grade leather finishes are designed to last, ensuring that the investment you made in your couch pays off. The couch is also amazingly easy to assemble and comes in three beautiful colors, one of which is sure to fit perfectly in your home.

What we don’t love

If you’re looking for a couch you can sink into, this isn’t the one for you. The durable, reversible foam cushions are definitely a bit on the hard side, so keep that in mind when you purchase.

For simple quality

This contemporary sofa from George Oliver is a steal. Its squared, clean design and linen-inspired fabric would seamlessly blend in with any modern room. Designed to work into compact spaces, it features chic buttonless tufting, sturdy wooden legs, and comes in three colors.

What we love

This couch’s boxy silhouette ensures it will fit well in almost any large or small space, regardless of size constraints or design style. It’s also incredibly easy to put together even if you’ve never put a couch together before, which is a bonus!

What we don’t love

While the couch’s cushions are comfortable, the armrests are a little hard, so if you make a habit of leaning on your couch, you may want to drape a throw blanket for extra comfort. Some reviewers also mentioned that the couch colors pictured online were inaccurate compared to the item they received.

For leather lovers

Looking for an easy-to-clean leather option? The West Point Sofa Bed from Omnia has buttery leather cushions that feel oh-so-luxurious. This couch comes in dozens of color options, so you’re sure to find an option that will easily complement whatever decor is already in place.

What we love

Aside from the color versatility, this couch also folds out into a sleeping space perfect for overnight guests…or when you’re too invested in your latest binge-watch to leave the couch.

What we don’t love

While the plethora of color options are impressive, it can be overwhelming to sift through multiple shades of black, brown, or blue to find the perfect shade, especially when you can’t see the couch in person.

For eye-catching details

When it comes to the Garren Sofa, details are everything. From its clean square lines to its tapered wooden feet, this couch will add a stylish touch to any space. Two bolster pillows accent each side, and a center cushion features tufted detailing.

What we love

According to Wayfair, this couch was designed with sustainability in mind, which is a huge selling point in our eyes. According to Wayfair’s Green Living promise, this couch is certified to have fewer negative impacts on people and the planet than the manufacture of similar items.

What we don’t love

This couch, as beautiful as it is, only comes in two shades of grey, meaning that if you want a bit of color variety in your space, this isn’t the couch for you.

For a retro pop of color

Have a tiny room? Just because you are short on space doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style. We love the mid-century lines on the Cavillo Loveseat. Its retro-style includes flared legs and button tufting detail, and it comes in four fun colors that will add visual interest to any room.

What we love

This couch sits right at the intersection of a couch and a loveseat, making it the perfect size for a small apartment living room or a reading nook. And, while we love a pop of color as much as the next person, the grey version is a welcome addition to rooms with more muted decor.

What we don’t love

Reviewers say this couch is lightcompared to other couches on the market, which makes it easy to move but could pose a danger to children who pull themselves up onto surfaces regularly.

Whether you regularly entertain or spend most nights lounging solo in your living room, the right couch is essential to your home’s comfort and design. When it comes time to elevate your home’s seating, you’re sure to find your new favorite couch among our top Wayfair picks.

What a hardwood contractor says your wood flooring says about you
According to a hardwood contractor, the species, stain, and cut of your wood floors can say a lot about you

The home is a canvas for your personality, and your interiors should reflect your personal aesthetics. A professional hardwood contractor on TikTok, @lumberjackwoodsupply, says your wood flooring may reveal more about you than you might have thought. Here is what the species, color, and style of your wood flooring say about you (though, of course, some of these are a bit tongue-in-cheek).
What your wood flooring species says about you
If you have lighter, slim, natural pine floors, this TikToker says you likely fall into one of two categories. “You definitely have an appreciation for old things,” says @lumberjackwoodsupply. Alternatively, “you most likely own an old house that had these floors underneath.”
Walnut flooring
Walnut flooring is classy, elegant, and often sold at a steeper price. The hardwood contractor says homeowners with walnut flooring “have taste.”
Red oak
“There’s a good chance you didn’t choose to install this. It was just already in your house,” says this TikToker. But if you did choose to install red oak flooring, “you are either on a budget or you like to go against the status quo.”
Brazilian Cherry
“You probably live in an upscale but slightly outdated suburban home,” says the hardwood contractor. “There’s a good chance you hate the red.”
If you favor the sleek light wood tones of maple flooring to curate an airy and uplifting aesthetic, “You either live on the beach, or you want to look like you live on the beach,” says this TikToker.
Hickory flooring is well-known for its boldness. It’s a unique wood with a quirky grain and various hues. If you have hickory flooring, “you like unique things,” says the hardwood contractor. “You want to be different.”

HomeGoods offers homeowners stunning and sophisticated pieces to add to their interior designs without blowing their reno budget out of the water. However, just because HomeGoods boasts incredible prices for luxe-looking goods doesn’t mean every decor item is a must-have. Here is some advice from an interior designer about what you should and should not buy at HomeGoods.
What you should buy at HomeGoods
Interior designer @the_avantgarde on TikTok shares her take on what homeowners should never pass up at HomeGoods. When decorating on a budget, these are some must-grab items.
Snag the plain white sheets
Julie Sousa, the interior decorator behind the account, says, “Plain white sheets: this is literally the place to find them on a budget.” Plain white sheets are a classic addition to any bedroom, fit with nearly every color palette, and offer a hotel luxe aesthetic. Sousa also recommends snagging the Calvin Klein or Ralph Lauren bed sheets, saying they are “always the best ones.”
Go for the classic bath accessories
According to Sousa, another pro tip when shopping at home decor stores is to go for classic bath accessories. Flat bath mats and classic white towels give the bathroom what Sousa calls “hotel vibes.” If you want that gorgeous hotel-luxe look in your space while remaining under budget, then you don’t want to pass up this HomeGoods find.
The vase combos are a must
Sousa also gushes over the amazing vase combos you can find in HomeGoods. With plenty of options and an array of sizes, shapes, and colors, homeowners can find vase pairings that blend with their existing home decor.
Don’t pass up the decorative baskets
Decorative baskets are another decor steal this interior designer says not to pass up. HomeGoods has several options in many hues, so you can find exactly what you need.
If you see All-Clad pots and pans, get them
Sousa says, “Sometimes you can get lucky and find some All-Clad pots and pans.” She continues by noting that “this is the best brand for pots and pans.” So, if you want chef-grade goods on a budget, add these to your cart.
Save money with large lamps
In her TikTok video, Sousa adds that HomeGoods has fantastic options for saving money on large lamps. If you’re looking to spruce up your interior with a larger lamp but don’t want to drain your wallet, HomeGoods could have just what you need.
