If you’re shopping for new furniture — whether it’s one piece or you’re trying to update an entire room — you know how frustrating it can be. If you want something a little more bespoke, there are often wait times upwards of two or three months before it ships, and even then, there’s no guarantee it’ll get delivered in that time period. And if you don’t have the time to wait that long, you’ll either have to pay way more for quick construction and fast shipping, or you can look for more affordable furniture from big box stores that will come in a few days. If you go the more affordable furniture route, there’s good news: you can actually find beautifully constructed, high-quality furniture that looks much more expensive than it is.

The secret to expensive-looking furniture without the price point is carefully choosing specific pieces by size: the larger you go, the simpler the furniture should be. Smaller pieces, like accent chairs and side tables, can be made with luxe fabrics or have unique finishes that model more expensive options. These upgrades will add pops of interest to your home without being too overwhelming. However, larger pieces like bookshelves, dressers and sideboards should be made with clean, simple lines and muted neutral colors. The more complicated or ornate something is, the harder it is to create with more affordable materials, so keeping to pieces made from wood or iron will look more well-made. Then, have fun with things like velvet on accent chairs or chrome finishes on side tables. Below, we round up our favorite furniture pieces on Amazon that all come in under $400. They’re all beautiful and quality pieces, despite the lower price tag.

Simple Neutrals With Texture + Wood

These clean, simple pieces are made with light wood and have textural accents that make them feel more elevated. Things like rattan embellishments, natural wood grain or sleek iron legs keep them from feeling far from basic. From bookshelves to sideboards, these are the larger pieces that will look much more expensive than what you paid for them.

Opulent Gold + Silver Touches

Pops of luxe gold and silver will look beautiful as accents in a living room or an entryway. If the style of your room is more on the warm side (think caramel, beige or orange), stick with things like this beautiful gold coffee table. If your room leans more toward blue, green and black, try out something silver like the unique hammered side table on this list.

Statement-Making Side Tables

Side tables are the perfect furniture piece to experiment with unusual or bold finishes. If you're looking to add a wow factor to your living room, there are some interesting finds on this list, like the luminous acrylic side table which will feel incredibly modern and artsy by your couch, or a more neutral (but still unique) tree stump table that can even be used as a stool. And if you recognize that chrome drip side table, it's probably because it's taken over your FYP on TikTok, especially if you follow maximalist interior design accounts. So jump in and take a risk with some of these finds.

Classic Midcentury Modern Pieces

Midcentury modern has become a classic, long-lasting design choice, and it's a great one for more oversized, affordable furniture. After all, the style is defined by its straightforward pieces and functional designs. Focusing on clean lines, a lack of ornate extras and solid wood construction, the trend has been as popular for as long as it has because of its enduring simplicity. It's a great style to look for in bookcases, sideboards and console tables and will stay on-trend for years to come.

Faux Carrara Marble Surfaces

Carrara marble is that ultra-recognizable white or light gray marble with darker grey lines that was first popularized in Rome and now appears in lots of expensive homes. Instead of trying to DIY your laminated floors (which can take a long time and require a lot of patience), opt for some faux Carrara marble coffee tabletops or finishes. It will look expensive and require no trips to the hardware store.

Luxe Velvet Seating

Velvet is back in style and, while it's always been associated with luxury, could sometimes look and feel dated. Instead of opting for heavy velvet curtains or old-school velvet couches, try accent chairs or ottomans to add comfortable seating that looks and feels luxurious. The storage ottomans on this list would make an excellent seat for a bedroom vanity, and the gray chair is a beautiful piece for the price.
