My Favorite Place To ‘Outfit’ A Room On The Cheap

We all know the drill: need an inexpensive couch? Head to Ikea. Need a cheap-but-functional coffee table? Ikea. Ikea, Ikea, Ikea!

Well, I have my fair share of Ikea goodies (I LOVE the Ikea don’t get me wrong) but for the past five years that I’ve been married to a grad student (you read that right) and living on the cheap and needing budget furnishings that still spoke to my personal aesthetic, I been using a different source. One you might not be aware of!

One that is priced the same as cheap as Ikea (and has about the same durability and quality).

Are you curious?

It’s Urban Outfitters!

I’m not the biggest fan of their clothing options, but boy does that apartment line speak directly to the very inner corners of my soul!

Below are some of the pieces from the Urban Outfitters Apartment collection that I own and love, as well as some of the pieces I’m lusting after in a hard core kind of way.
