 Agate:

Its everywhere in home décor lately! While you don't need a large piece of art like this, it can be bookends, standing art accents, coasters or even peel and stick wall paper!

 Velvet:

Its another biggie that's been around for a few years. Large furniture like couches, coffee tables, benches and head boards are beautiful and statement pieces but you don't have to go big. Just add pillows, throws , runners or even drapes if you dare.
