Sauder Lux Bar Cart

Price: $174.41

The product: Can you have Midcentury Modern decor without a bar cart? This one by Sauder is in a satin gold finish, is on casters, and is at a price point that will still allow you to afford Scotch. Or gin. Or vodka.

What buyers are saying: “This cart is awesome. I have a thing for bar carts and this is a good one. I like how it is taller than the standard cart and it is sturdy so it would be difficult for a child to tip. The Glass is a good thickness, strong enough to hold my Bose speaker unit on the lower shelf and my laptop on the top shelf.” —Missy G.

Homelegance Erath Fabric Sofa

Price: $470.43

The product: Yes, yes, we have a Midcentury sofa on here, too. And at less than $500, this sofa has some pretty elegant lines and a classic button-tufted seat back. It comes in sand, blue, and orange (if you’re more adventurous), and most reviewers gave it four to five stars.

What buyers are saying: “This is a great sofa. I’ve had it about 4 months and it still looks brand new…pretty amazing considering I have two kids and three dogs. Very comfortable and sturdy. I bought this to replace a custom made sofa I returned made by a well known mid century modern furniture manufacturer. I’m so happy with this purchase because the price is fantastic and the quality is higher than what I was expecting. I wish there was an ottoman to match…I would buy that, too.” — Lindsay K.
