Accent Furniture for the Recent Grad

Graduation season is rapidly approaching. Do you find yourself racking your brain about what gift to give the graduate for their big day? Whether they’re moving out for the first time or preparing for their first apartment after college, there are a number of accent furniture gift ideas from Twin Star Home™ to help them succeed.

Accent Furniture Graduation Gifts They’ll Love

Any graduate’s new apartment should be filled with reminders of home. What better way to display family photos and heirlooms than with a stylish multi-purpose bookcase? A perfect accent to any bedroom, living room, or dining area, the modern and sleek Ashford Bookcase (BK10444-TPP01) would make a great addition. It has adjustable display shelving and removable partitions to make arranging books, picture frames and other décor a breeze. Meanwhile, its full extension storage drawer and file drawer offer a concealed storage solution for bills, office supplies, craft items, and more.

Maybe the graduate in your life could use an additional workspace? Off them a break from the one at their campus library or first job after college. A power-enabled standing desk is a great fit, especially for those situated in tight quarters. For a fun, contemporary style, try the Ashford Standing Desk (ODP10556-48D908), which is topped with dry-erase friendly glass. This desk will keep your graduate active, and offers the following features:

  • Height range from 29.5” to 47”
  • Illumitouch™ seamless control panel
  • Reminders to stand up with the GetActive™ timer
  • Integrated multiport charging station with three 2.4 amp USB inputs
  • (and they can write on their desk with the dry-erase compatible top!)

Or maybe your graduate could use a more traditional desk, like the simple industrial-style desk pictured below. With cool industrial loft style and open architecture, it’s flexible and functional, with a hidden bonus – integrated USB charging.

More Storage with the Right Accent Furniture

Recent graduates can always use more storage space – whether they’re moving from their childhood bedroom into a small dorm room or from campus to a studio apartment in a big city. For any scenario, we recommend the Genevieve Rolling Filing Cabinet (FC7506-I622), which offers storage and doubles as a charging station with two AC power outlets and two USB power ports. It rolls from room to room in case they need it to double as both a night table and accent cabinet. And it can keep their devices charged wherever they’re hanging out.

Another perfect storage solution for the graduate is a multi-purpose accent cabinet like the one pictured below. It has a sliding barn door and striking two-tone color scheme, so it works with a variety of styles including industrial loft, rustic, and modern farmhouse. Better still, three large drawers on one side and an adjustable shelf on the other side offer flexible storage that suits any need. So, whether your recent grad is storing office supplies, linens, clothing, or kitchenware, this cabinet is perfect for the job.

You can even give your grad the gift of comfort with the electric fireplaces, stove heaters, and lanterns from the Twin Star Home™ family of brands.
