After months of living, working, and dining at home, we’re reevaluating our decor MVPs. A new desk takes precedence over the vintage end table you’ve had bookmarked on Instagram; a bookshelf to fit all the hardbacks you ordered suddenly tops your wish list. The problem is that new furniture is a pricey investment—which is why Shea McGee’s fall collection with Target is so great. Our favorite bigger purchases are all under $400. 

McGee’s line (her second in an ongoing collaboration with the retailer) is centered on accents that bring cozy fall vibes home. And while we’re always going to have a soft spot for a bouclé throw pillow, we’re zeroing on the furniture, which features an array of trendy materials in timeless silhouettes. Here’s what we’ll be shopping for as soon as the collection is live on September 13.

The Home Office Necessity

Springville Writing Desk, Target ($229)
Shop

It looks like cane isn’t going anywhere, and this writing desk is the ideal blend of form and function. Ditch the dining room table for a proper workspace; it’s small enough to tuck into the only available nook in your apartment while still providing ample room for a task lamp (and your go-to form of aromatherapy).

Fill the shelves with board games and DVDs for a catchall entertaining station you’ll be glad you invested in when the cold weather rolls around. This cane console looks like a vintage score, no doubt thanks to the elegant walnut finish and curved silhouette.
