Big-ticket items like couches, bookshelves, and bed frames are foundational purchases that set the scene for the decor style you’re embracing — and accent pieces tie it all together. They’re like the sprinkles on a sundae: You can enjoy the ice cream without them, but things look pretty boring when they’re missing.
Amazon has recently made it easier to find just the right picks with its new curated Design Textures storefront, dedicated to these detailed pieces that make a room pop. As the name implies, there are plenty of textures, finishes, and materials to choose from. Shoppers can pick out tables and lamps adorned with metallic hardware, artsy tapestries with abstract prints, and shiny geometric mirrors.
These pieces can easily be worked into a living room that’s feeling a bit blasé or a bedroom that needs a little oomph. And there’s something for homes of every design taste, whether that’s cottagecore, coastal grandmother, or mid-century modern. Best of all, everything is reasonably priced.
Even the simplest accent objects can make a difference. For example, if you’re bored by the plastic garbage cans dotting the corners of your home, replace them with a glint of metallic, courtesy of a golden waste basket. It’s an unexpected way to add a little more style.
Looking to jazz up functional pieces of furniture? The gold-tinged side table set from DlandHome is both useful and gorgeous. The duo can be arranged as a separate coffee and side table or stacked for a cool structural look; either arrangement adds extra storage space.
If you’re lacking vases, it might be time to add a playful holder to your collection. These “impeccable” ceramic vases are perfect for displaying blooms both faux and real. They’re fun enough on their own, but with a spray of branches or flowers, you have an easy accent piece for lackluster tabletops.
Having an accent rug underfoot never fails to jazz up a room, either. Case in point? This super soft woven textile. It has a bold pattern, but the neutral gray and subdued blue color options make it feel chic rather than over the top. “I’ve gotten several compliments on this area rug,” wrote a reviewer, who added that vacuuming it is a piece of cake, too.
