Hi everyone! Today I am so excited to share this post with you. I have had so much fun decorating my apartment, and Wayfair has been one of the companies that has helped me with that! I was able to find so many great pieces for my home that were also at an affordable price point for a young professional like me. This post is going to share my Living Room Preview with Wayfair!
The things I always make sure to look for when building out a living room are seating, a nice rug, plants, lighting, and decor! These are what really pull a room together, and they are also things most living rooms need. Everything that I purchased was under $350 (including my couch which was something I was really aiming for)! If you are looking to furnish an apartment, then this post is for you.

Choosing the Perfect Couch
When I first moved in, I knew I wanted a velvet and/or pink couch! I looked on so many sites trying to find one that spoke to me, and was finally able to do so. I love velvet as a fabric because it is so soft and just makes you want to relax and take it easy! That’s something I really wanted out of the items I chose for my home. The one I ended up going with was a pink linen couch that can convert into a bed!
The reason I wanted a couch that can convert into a bed is because my apartment is only a 1B/1B that does’t have any extra space for a second one. That way if someone came to visit, I would be able to quickly and easily give them somewhere to sleep! For a small space, this is a genius idea. I wanted to round up some similar couches to mine below because they’re perfect for apartments!
Picking a Chic Arm Chair
I have always had the dream of a reading nook! They are such cozy spaces to cuddle up in, relax, and read your favorite book. Since I ended up not going with a velvet couch, I knew I wanted a velvet arm chair FOR SURE! Wayfair gifted me the gorgeous deep teal one above and I couldn’t be happier with how it looks in my space. The gold legs work well with my other decor too!
I also love the detail on the back of this chair. The slight texture makes it look more expensive and more high end! I love finding luxury at a great price. I have this chair situated in the corner of my living room with my faux fiddle leaf fig tree next to it! I wanted to share some of the other gorgeous chairs Wayfair has too. There are so many options so feel free to check them out below!
Selecting a Unique Area Rug
Finding the perfect rug for a space is a dream for me! I love adding the final curated touch to a room and I feel a rug is the perfect way to do so. The one above isn’t the exact one that’s in my space, but it’s super close to that! I honestly love the one that I’ve added to this post because it’s even brighter and more fun. I personally prefer a medallion pattern to other types which is why I picked it!
The best way to complete a room is to find a rug that matches the other colors in your space! For me, I made sure to get one that has a lot of pinks and deep blues because that’s what I have a lot of. It’s also a good idea to get one or two accent pillows that match the aesthetic of your rug as well. This will allow everything to be tied together! Check out some rugs below:
Adding Faux Plants to Your Space
I am a strong lover of real plants, but 1) I understand that people do not have the green thumb I have and 2) just want a faux plant so their money will last! Fiddle leaf fig trees have been all the rage this year, and honestly I adore them. The only issue with the real trees is that they’re expensive and SOOOO easy to kill. I have a small one in my apartment and home girl lost like five leaves in one week.
This is the exact reason I opted for a faux fiddle leaf! Wayfair has a ton of faux plants for you to purchase which is something I was so excited anout. They also look really realistic which is what I look for when buying faux plants! If a fiddle leaf isn’t your taste, that is totally okay because they have anything from ferns to monsteras (one of my fav plants). Shop some below:
Finding the Perfect Floor Lamp
The last item I wanted to share with you today from Wayfair was their floor lamps! I have been wanting a very modern style floor lamp for a while now. I feel like they add a fun, almost art deco feel to a room! From the beginning, I knew I wanted a lamp that had a gold stand. This would match the chair I got as well as the other gold accents I have around my apartment!
I also really love lamps that have large and round bulbs. They feel really chic and modern. The lamp I chose is the perfect height for my room and fits in perfectly with my theme. I usually try to make sure and have shades of white in things that I purchase to keep everything looking crisp and clean. My living room table is white (similar to the one above) and it helps to keep things consistent! Shop some other lamps below:
