Faux Cactus Plant

Cacti tend to be way easier to care for than other plants, but some of us are still such plant-killing offenders that we need other options. This five-foot-tall faux cactus is a fantastic choice if you want to quickly and easily get that desert feeling flowing in your home. To make the cactus look even more real, you could "plant" it in another pot with real dirt.

The clean, bold geometric pattern of this handy pouf has us smitten. With a neutral black-and-white palette, this pouf could work well with almost any type of decor. Use it for some extra seating in your living or family room or even as a side table.

Rattan Halo Mirror

Rattan can sometimes look a bit Golden Girls-esque, but we think this pretty mirror is all kinds of chic. The sunburst style makes us think of a hot summer day, and the varying length spikey pieces give the piece a fun, funky edge to it.
