A surprisingly elegant two-drawer filing cabinet, because functionality doesn’t have to be boring. This cabinet gives you plenty of space to organize all your most important pieces of paperwork — and with those clean lines and gold accents, it’s lovely to look at, too.
A curtain of fairy lights so magical, you’ll swear you’ve gone to Narnia every time you turn it on.

It’s like magic!
A faux palm plant, because every home is cozier with a little greenery – even when said greenery isn’t actually, uh, alive. If you have trouble keeping real growing things happy and healthy (hi, it’s me, I’m talking about me), picks like this surprisingly realistic faux palm can still help transform your surroundings into the plant-filled sanctuary you’ve been dreaming of anyway – no plant food or watering cans required.
A set of 16(!) stackable refrigerator organizer bins, so you can finally get your fridge under control and stop losing things aaaaaaaaall the way in the back before they… turn. (Yuck.)

A bamboo bath tray for the most luxurious of self-care nights. Go ahead – draw yourself a bath. Use your favorite bath bombs or essential oils.

Yes, you do. Aren’t you glad you transformed your bathroom into the spa of your dreams?
And a teak bath mat that’ll keep you from slipping on wet tiles in style. Teak is naturally resistant to mold and mildew (that’s why some of the fanciest outdoor furniture is made out of it), meaning it’s ideal for a bathtub or shower situation – and unlike rug-style bath mats, this one is meant to stand the test of time. Also, it’s beautiful. What’s not to love?

A ridiculously pretty essential oil diffuser that’ll fill your home with the sweetest of scents and a gorgeous piece of décor, all in one go.

A gorgeously glam console table that’ll help fill up that weird empty space you don’t really know what to do with – whether it’s in a hallway or right in your living room.

A ludicrously soft faux fur throw blanket, so you can snuggle up in comfort and style when the night gets a little chilly. Reviewers say it’s big enough for two people – but it’s also A-OK if you just want to keep it for yourself. No one will blame you for it. That’s how soft it is.

A unique geometric bookcase, so you can seamlessly integrate your TBR pile with your design scheme. Reviewers say they’re truly astonished by the number of books this shelf holds – and it displays them in such a visually arresting way, you’d be forgiven for mistaking it for a sculpture in a museum. Bookworms, unite!
A trio of rattan storage baskets that’ll make your closets not just super organized, but super ~aesthetic~, too. Ideal for anything from hand towels to dry goods, these baskets all have handles for easy grabbing and stashing – and they’re all different sizes, so a) you’ve got options when it comes to what needs storing and how you store, and b) they nest together when not in use.
A full-length mirror with an elegant, arched frame, because nothing helps open up a space like a huge, reflective surface.

A chunky knit pouf that’ll give you somewhere cozy to kick your feet up on at the end of a long day. Think of it like a mini, grown-up version of a beanbag chair meant just for your toesies. Bonus: It comes in tons of colors, so no matter what your aesthetic might be, there’s almost certain to be a pouf to match.

A kitchen island poised to become the MVP of your food prep space. With a two-door cabinet, three doors, and a towel bar, this wheeled pick offers lots of practical storage space – but that’s not all: The solid wood countertop also has a collapsible leaf, which, when folded out, gives you enough additional surface space to actually use it as a dining spot. Always appreciated!

It all comes full circle, you see.
A comfy gel memory foam mattress, because, I mean, you spend a third of your life sleeping. You deserve to have something good to do it on when you’re snoozing at home. This medium-firmness mattress is designed so that you don’t feel any other motion in the bed; also, it’s breathable and features cooling technology, which — as most people who sleep hot can tell you (me, it’s me, I’m people) — is a boon when it comes to maintaining a comfortable snoozing temperature.
And a set of excellent sheets to go with it. (Why sleep on scratchy sheets if you don’t have to?) This 1,000-thread count, 100% Egyptian-quality cotton set will send you off to the land of Nod in cool, soft comfort.
And lastly, a delightful little cast-iron llama figurine because, I mean… it’s just fun to have in your space, and sometimes, that’s enough. Stick him on your mantle. Set him on your coffee table.
