Our Top 10 Amazon Finds


Okay, so… it’s been decided: Amazon can take all of our money. 

We constantly find ourselves uncovering new products that not only fit the exact aesthetic we’re looking for, but also the price that we’re wishing for. Nowadays, it feels like if we walk in a random furniture store looking for a lamp to brighten up the place (no pun intended), we have to give up a portion of Sam’s college fund to make it happen. But in the last few years we’ve had a lot of luck finding exactly what we have in mind: both in terms of style and budget.

Over the last few years, we’ve tried to perfect our style in both our home and our personal fashion, and Amazon has been a great tool to help us through that process. Whether you’re looking for a lamp for your bedside table, or a stylish cover to mask the random print on a tissue box, (yes, it exists and is on this list!) there’s a version of it within just a few clicks.

We wanted to share our 10 favorite finds from Amazon to hopefully offer some inspo for your home:

  1. Cordless Table Lamps

Do you ever feel like you have a spot that needs a lamp that a cord wouldn’t reach, or there isn’t an outlet in the place you need it to be, or you simply hate having cords strung all over the place (because same)?! These cordless table lamps will absolutely do the trick for you. We have a couple of these in our home and they not only add nice lighting, they have so much character to them (and the shade isn’t glass so it’s 10x safer and more practical!) They are battery powered and have a dimmer on them as well. They look like a beautiful antique without the hefty price tag.

  1. Bamboo Blinds

To me, the type of blinds you have can completely transform your home. These bamboo blinds gave our windows a delightful touch. They added a level of charm and coziness that certainly adds style to our home! They are made of 100% bamboo, cordless, and are free of toxic dyes and chemicals!

  1. Wireless Picture Light

Something that has always caught my eye in someone’s home are art lights. I feel that they exude a sense of elegance, charm, and classic glamor in your home. These wireless picture lights do just that. They can effortlessly add dimension to gallery walls, and since they are cordless, battery powered, and dimmable, it’s really easy to place them wherever you want. We’re big on ambience, and these enhance the ambience in our home in a really great way.

  1. Flameless Candles

I’ve always loved tall candlesticks. Like, I love them. But burning them sometimes isn’t always the safest thing and they go out pretty quickly. So, these flameless candles give off that exact appearance and mood that is so desirable, but without the fear of them falling over and catching something on fire (big yikes!) We’ve found they’re legitimately versatile–you can sit them at a dinner table, in your bathroom for a spa night, or in your windows. I can say honestly that these are an unexpected and subtle addition to our space!

  1. Oval Frame

Frames are such an important part of enhancing the photos or art we want to display in our homes. However, usually they are painfully expensive (especially if you’re wanting some with character and personality!), but these frames are timelessly beautiful and budget-friendly! The gold frame instantly adds depth, beauty, and warmth to your home, while amplifying the photos or art that you want to display!

  1. Bamboo Frames

These silver, metal frames are so stunning! Rather than your typical silver frame, this frame has a detailed bamboo design on it that gives it texture and can really brighten up any vignette in your home. They feel incredibly luxurious and will make any photo or art piece you place in them a lovely touch!

  1. Tufted Ottoman

Okay–I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about this product! I bought this ottoman a few months back and have loved every minute I’ve owned it. It not only is our first step in child-proofing our living room, provides additional seating, and a fantastic foot rest–but it is its own piece of art! It really ties together our living space nicely and can act as a coffee table as well (we love a good coffee table book)! Ottomans are another item where their price tag can run ridiculously high, but this specific one is a great price and a quality product. 

  1. Peel and Stick Backsplash

We all know that tile installation can be *so* expensive and in recent years peel and stick has been the way to go — we love a renter friendly solution! This peel and stick backsplash is such a clean and modern way to amp up your space. We’re not huge DIY-ers, but we have been really happy with how this specific project (applying these to our not-working fireplace) turned out — both in terms of the process and the end result.

  1. Square Rattan Tissue Box Cover

Okay this one may feel strange, but it’s legitimately been a wonderful touch of elegance in our home! Typically, tissue box brands put a random print on them that are commonly, well, to put it nicely, not aesthetically appealing. When I saw this product, I knew I just had to have it. We love having tissues around (it’s an underrated luxury not having to reach for toilet paper or paper towels to blow your nose), and now we can display them without compromising “the vibes”.

  1. Classic Cottage Lamp

This has to be one of our favorite pieces in our apartment! There’s a comfort and coziness that comes with these style of prints, while the blue and white Chinoiserie print gives off an elegant and traditional feel. If you’ve been here any amount of time, you know this piece is right up Anna’s alley, and adding it to our bar cart gives it such an great element of design that we just can’t help but adore!

    Had a good belly laugh over those gorgeous lamps — which I love! A single lamp is $52.99. But you can get a pair — set of 2 — for $127.07. Gotta love Amazon.
