If there’s one wildly underrated space your home is missing, it’s a spot to carelessly and unapologetically lounge about. That said, creating a calming, stress-free atmosphere (otherwise known as Hygge 101) is easier said than done. Luckily, we recently discovered the secret to ultimate serenity… and it’s waiting for you at Urban Outfitters. 

Introducing, the Rohini Daybed Cushion: a tufted, transformable, overstuffed landing pad that has the power to transform just about any room. Though the oh-so-pillowy piece was made to pair with any of the retailer’s popular daybeds (sold separately), the Rohini Cushion is so much more than a simple sofa insert—and the internet is full of proof. Coming in at under $120, it’s not just the cushion’s sheer versatility that has us feeling especially inspired, but also its budget-friendly price tag. Read on for six ingenious ways to make this seemingly basic cushion your own.

A makeshift headboard

With little room for a bulky headboard in her quiet, whitewashed Brooklyn bedroom, Samantha Litt faked her way to a dreamy (and space-savvy) backdrop by securing the brand’s earthy green velvet version against the wall. Who needs the real deal when an alternative as chic as this can get the job done for a fraction of the cost?

A platform sofa

At the heart of any true chilled-out living room is a sleek, low-sitting sofa that encourages ultimate zen. Literally and figuratively elevate your current seating situation by piling a slew of cushions atop pallets for a semi-industrial look, much like this statement-worthy sectional.

A bonus guest room

Contrary to popular belief, attics are not just a dumping ground for unsightly memorabilia and long-forgotten boxes. Instead of stashing dust-gathering goods in this under-utilized space, turn your attic into a sweet, two-in-one bonus room where out-of-towners can crash. For inspiration, look no further than this charming Nashville abode, where a serene mural and patterned pillows set the scene for a memorable snooze.

A layered office nook

Sitting at a desk in a not-so-sturdy swivel chair all day can take a toll on your back. Have the luxury of working from home? Transform a lonely corner or unused crevice into a secondary workstation by simply stacking two cushions on top of one another—no frame necessary. Thoughtfully layered with graphic throw pillows and woven blankets, this boho-inspired nook has us convinced we deserve a more tranquil spot to catch up on emails.

A peaceful breakfast oasis

Fact: Where you choose to drink your morning coffee says a lot about you. If you’re the type that likes to soak in the day’s first light while you sip, take a cue from this light-filled Minneapolis home. DIY-pro Angela Mueller’s calming, whitewashed nook is the quintessence of elegant lounging. Plus, her peaceful setup doubles as a much-needed reminder that trailing plants are always a good idea.

A monochromatic sectional

Ever since we first laid eyes on OkCupid co-founder Christian Rudder’s Roche Bobois sofa, we’ve been dreaming up ways to steal the look. Luckily, with the help of Urban Outfitter’s Reema Back Cushion, you can instantly replicate this stunning floor sectional with total ease.
