Mid-century modern furniture rocks a swanky Mad Men look. That’s why I was so excited when I found out that Target was celebrating its 1962 founding with a new line of furniture celebrating styles from back then. Most of us can’t afford the vintage originals from those days, but the Project 62 collection is filled with clever pieces that look a lot like them, and are actually terrific values.
Small details make a room, especially a small room. If you live in a tiny space, this collection can help you add fun pieces that keep it looking airy. And even if you thought you were done furnishing your place, try to find a way to mix in a few of these things for an inexpensive style update. Decor prices start at $5.99. Mixing high-end and low-end in the same room can elevate a space, so you don’t have to take yourself (or your room) too seriously.
Here some of the most elegant choices in the Project 62 collection.
1. This on-trend blue velvet chair
The velvet channel-tufted chair is the winner of the collection. It’s so stunning that you’ll want a pair of them. With its rich cobalt color, this chair can work equally well in a sophisticated living room or a casual family room.

2. A chic gold side table
Metals have the power to change a room from boring to chic, and Target uses plenty of them in the collection. The white marble top looks luxe. Slide this shapely table next to a dark chair and watch it pop. Or use it instead of a desk chair.

Snazzy metallic barware will dazzle your friends when you host your next party. This shaker is absolutely sleek, with its metal body and acacia wood top. It will instantly become your go-to. It may even bump up your bartending skills.

4. A dining room set you can mix and match
A white top lets this dining room table take up very little visual space, but it’s large enough for family dinners. The pretty teal chairs really set it off. And who knew I would desperately want to buy a chandelier at Target?
