A little birdie told us you may or may not be on a strict budget this Way Day. We totally get how easy it is to get caught up in the mega deals—especially when you only have two days (until April 27 at midnight) to shop or forever hold your peace.

To that end, we scoured the blowout sale for expensive-looking furniture within a reasonable price range. The results? From a Mistana Ronaldo lounge chair made for curling up with a book to a 17 Stories coffee table that matches any decor, these 11 pieces of furniture under $500 will not disappoint.

Oh, and did we mention you get free shipping with a few exceptions? It's a win-win.

The 12 Best Apartment Sectionals of 2023


Buyers can't stop talking about how fabulous this chair, crafted from solid rubberwood, looks in person. (It clocks in at 27.5 inches wide by 29 inches tall.) And while assembly is required, its comfy polyester blend makes it worth the effort.

This chic mid-century modern dresser comes in five different colors, but we’re definitely partial to this gorgeous caramel hue, which really shows off the grain. The bottom four drawers are deeper than the top two, and all six combined give you plenty of storage room for sweaters, linens or anything else you want neatly tucked away.

If you dream of having a mini bar in your living room, we support your decision to buy this sleek number. The upper shelf features a built-in wine rack that holds seven bottles; the lower shelf provides an open space to store bar essentials or decorative items. There are also two six-glass racks on its underside that hold stemware, so you can start the party immediately.

Whether you have a TV in the living room or not, you may want to consider scooping up this mid-century-inspired console table anyway because it's super durable, thanks to its solid and engineered wood design with tapered dowel legs. At 14 inches deep and 71 inches long, it's just the right size to house your plants, candles, books and an up to 65-inch TV.

This faux leather sleeper sofa is really as soft and smooth as it looks, according to buyers. "The couch looks great. It was easy to put together and operates well to fold down. The material is also a much higher quality than I was expecting. I have a cat with sharp nails, and there’s zero damage to the couch," one shares. Oh, and at 31.5 inches tall, 81.5 inches wide and 34.5 inches deep, it's apartment-approved.

We love a stain- and scratch-resistant wood coffee table. But above all, we're obsessed with this round shelf design, so we have ample to place things to show off on top and to hide on the bottom. And as far as dimensions, it's 17.8 inches tall, 33.5 inches long and 33.5 inches deep.

7. Sand & Stable Esme Chair

Besides the fact that several reviewers say it only takes five minutes to put together, this armchair, handcrafted from rattan and solid wood, nails the coastal grandma look. One buyer adds, "[It's] the cutest little chair! The fabric is soft and fuzzy. I added a nice accent pillow to go with it. Very durable and such a nice piece of furniture."

You can fill that lonely corner in your living room with this V-shaped, manufactured wood table. You won't regret it, since it's warp-resistant, only protrudes 17 inches from the corner and has two soft-close doors with adjustable metal hinges.

As one shopper says, "This couch is everything. Not for high-traffic couch leisure, but it’s definitely great for movie nights and gaming...the color of this couch is very rich in person!" It has a soft velvet material—available in gray and emerald green—it's stain-resistant and it can support up to 793 pounds.

More than 3,000 reviewers agree that this manufactured wood coffee table is worth ditching your old one for. Not because it holds up to 100 pounds, but because it's spacious (spanning 18 inches tall, 40.125 inches long and 22 inches deep) and its timeless design ensures you'll love it for years to come.

Besides the cozy and luxe polyester blend, you'll appreciate that this armchair is UV- and fade-resistant, plus it's easy to wipe down (just use a moist cloth). But here's why one Wayfair buyer would recommend it: "I love this chair. It's so soft and big enough for me to sit cross-legged comfortably (I'm 5-foot-4). It's perfect for any room, but I got it for my office, and I'd buy another if I needed one."
