While pure Peruvian alpaca wool blankets can set you back $300+ easily, direct-to-consumer bedding obsessives Brooklinen have a slightly less expensive version that doesn't sacrifice quality. The sumptuous, soft throw keeps warmth without the weight—you'll be wrapping yourself in it year-round—and makes a reliable Netflix and chill partner.
Of course the actual fragrances of BYREDO's new range of room sprays are the most important, but the oversized black glass bottles are so sophisticated that you'll want to have it on display. Available in Bibliotheque, Cotton Poplin and Tree House, the perfumes are subtle but pretty. Our choice is Tree House, which has notes of bamboo, myrrh, leather and cedar. Price is in Euros.
With everything needed to start a matcha obsession, Ippodo's matcha tea kit includes all items required for regular and consistent matcha-making. There's a strainer, whisk, bamboo ladle, whisk stand and (of course) ceremonial-grade matcha, but the kit's booklet might be the most important item as it offers guidance through the matcha preparation ritual.
Made for Mondays is Montreal-based Raised by Wolves' "Fuck Off" collection. Perhaps the best item in the range, these printed slides tell it like it is. Available in several colorways, the blue and white is our pick.
Room shoes are Japanese home essentials and a tradition growing more common in the Western world. Crafted from Sasawashi fabric, these Osaka-made slippers from Rikumo absorb moisture (and odors) and won't pill. Best of all, of course, they are comfortable to slip into after a long day.
Available in four different (but equally cheery) colorways, Verloop's "Borders" colorblock knitted throw is ideal for autumn's transitional weather. Complete with handmade pom-poms at the corners, the blanket has a playful edge, but it's certainly at home in an adult house.
Multi-talented Mark Gonzales has just released a bunch of prints, apparel and accessories—our pick is the colorful giclée print "Jacobs." Featuring Gonzales' familiar winged creatures, this print is bold and charming. Printed on archival paper, it measures 18 by 18 inches.
Designed and made in Kennebunk, Maine, SPADONE HOME's "J Vase" draws inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright’s gorgeous Guggenheim Museum—and, fittingly, is visually appealing from all angles. Crafted from Meganite (similar to marble) the vase is available in various speckled colorways: a deep blue, off-white with multi-colored splashes, or a speckled grey. With a water-tight tube for flowers (which is also removable), this is a lovely piece of design that's entirely functional.
Instead of requiring disposable filters, the Coffee Gator has a reusable laser-cut steel filter designed to pull the most out of your beans. This offers a cleaner flavor than the French-press method. Easy to clean, this hassle-free piece of equipment—that yields 400ml, or three cups—can handle years of repeat use.
Still one of our favorite records from 2016, Kishi Bashi's Sonderlust is beautifully uplifting despite its pathos. Deeply personal and yet universally relatable, the record features all the sparkle we've grown to expect and adore from the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist—a tremendous blend of melancholy and joyful luminescence. And, with production help from Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor, this is one of Kishi Bashi's best albums thus far.
Made from ultra-fine, 100% merino wool, this eye mask is super-soft and comfortable. It fits snugly on your head with a knitted headband (also merino wool) to avoid sleep interruption. This mask works better than those made from unnatural fabrics as it's breathable, an asset that prevents wearers from overheating while using it.
For introverts, homebodies and those with hangovers, this Stay Home Club T-shirt says it all so you don't have to. Designed by Olivia Mew, the white top is made in the USA and printed in Canada, with pale blue lettering and navy cuffs and crewneck. Available in extra-small to double-XL, the T-shirt is unisex but keep in mind it's a slim fit.
Co-authored by Michael Strauss (a professor of astrophysics at Princeton University), J. Richard Gott (professor of astrophysical sciences at Princeton University) and Neil Degrasse Tyson (astrophysicist, cosmologist and Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space), this book about space has some star-power behind it. "Welcome To The Universe" is an introduction to astronomy, but in no way is it dumbed down—rather, readers will feel like they're understanding the impossible. Covering questions about intelligent life, black holes, worm holes and time travel, this book feels almost as infinite as the universe itself.
With pop culture—and vegetation—references aplenty, BFGF's WWA pillow casts contemporary charm alongside its plush comfort. Jacquard-woven with black backing, this cushion measures in at 17" x 17". Some of the visuals, including Lisa Simpson and the Nike swoosh are regulars on Lilian Martinez's art-based design brand—and they're quite welcome here.
Several steps up from your regular cotton T-shirt and underwear, Olivia von Halle's sleepwear and robes are luxurious. With pretty prices to match, her 100% silk pajamas are divine—with colorways and patterns aplenty. Our pick is the classic navy blue, which is sophisticated and—for those klutzes among us—will hide coffee stains more easily than white.
Made by Leesa, the Sapira is a one-type-fits-all mattress offering genuine comfort. Its blend of pocket springs and high-performance foams (all 100% American-made) means that it's not too firm, but also doesn't leave you sinking into the bed. There's even a top layer that allows for air flow for those who run hot at night. Available in twin, twin XL, full, queen, king and California king options, everybody's needs are met. The company donates one mattress for every 10 sold, and also partners with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant one tree for every mattress sold.
Robes tend to reflect a justifiable luxury: they keep you warm and comfy post-shower or whenever you need a little coziness. Here, Coyuchi updates the classic unisex spa robe with an airy waffle pattern. Crafted from fine organic cotton, the robe comes in both gray and Alpine white colorways. Additionally, it's washing-machine safe.
