One of the best thrills in life is sourcing a purchase so good, from a place so unexpected, that it causes people to declare you a genius. That's why it can seriously be worth your time to sort through Walmart's massive home offerings, because there are some real gems in there — think art deco-inspired accents, dupes for Scandinavian design, and affordable glam furniture. Since we're clearly obsessed, we've compiled a list of Walmart's current offerings that definitely feel like high-design finds.

1. Safavieh Lula Cane Accent Chair, $242.29

We could easily see this accent chair casually gracing an annoyingly perfect corner of a Stockholm apartment.

2. Decomode Modern Blue Ceramic Vase Trio, $37.90

These punchy blue vases feel like they were plucked from a midcentury time capsule.

3. Josef Albers Framed Square Art Print, $87.99

Yes, you could find an original Josef Albers painting, but then you'd be out $10,000.

4. Best Choice Products Velvet Bench, $134.99

This elegant navy velvet bench is inspiring us to create an art deco-inspired ladies lounge.

5. Dainolite Halogen Floor Lamp, $290.84

If you told us this floor lamp was an original from the 1970s, we'd probably believe you.

6. Sagebrook Home 2-Tier Accent Table, $464.49

Not cheap, but tbh, if you found a true vintage, art deco version of this table, you'd be paying double.

7. Surya Quartz Geometric Indoor Area Rug, $63.84-$789

"Oh, which cool Brooklyn home store did you get this at?" — Your BFF

8. Safavieh Couture Ravyn Modern Glam Woven Velvet Ottoman, $169.99

Pretty sure we spotted something similar to this at last year's Stockholm Furniture Fair.

9. MoDRN Scandinavian Grasshopper Floor Lamp, $138

This lamp is pretty blatantly inspired by a classic piece by a renowned Swedish designer.

10. Modrest Pike Modern Elm and Antique Brass End Table, $660.73

This substantial end table combines a glam base with a top that feels hand-worked.

11. Three Hands Ceramic Glaze Vase, $43.99

A pottery relic from the 1960s ... or Walmart find?

12. Retro Lightning by Drew Barrymore Flower Kids, $48

Here's another piece that feels like it could be from the '60s or '70s ... from a distance.

13. Umbra Shift Hoop Magazine Rack, $52.70

Bring some sleek, minimalist design to your organization game.

14. 2xhome Wishbone Chair, $181.50

Fool all your friends with this "Wishbone" chair.

15. Safavieh Elicia Midcentury Glam Retro Velvet Chair, $380.74

Where midcentury meets contemporary.

16. MoDRN Scandinavian Metal Bar Stool, $149

There are similar versions of this modern stool out there ... for three times the price.
