February 10, 2022 – Earlier this month, interior designer and author Amber Lewis extended her West Coast design sensibilities to a third capsule collection with Anthropologie. Filled with elegant furniture, decor, and kitchenware—like these woodsy scented candles in ceramic vessels—the collaboration has everything you need to add a touch of California cool to your space for spring.
February 12, 2022 – Cultures meet and great design is born from this collab by Block Shop and Paboy Bojang’s In Casa by Paboy. Combining the Indian hand block printing techniques of California–based Block Shop with the expert craftsmanship of Gambian–born Paboy Bojang into one-of-a-kind cushions, this union is a joyful celebration of each brand’s shared love for eye-catching color and design. Inventory is quickly dwindling, so we recommend snagging one of these luxurious linen and Neapolitan cotton pillows while you can—like this one in a striking cobalt with a playful peach ruffle border.
February 14, 2022 – On Valentine’s Day, Cold Picnic released a new collection of their abstract rugs in sweetly nostalgic designs. Each inspired by and named after Taiwanese and English desserts like mochi, taro, sherbert, and more, the Dessert Collection is the first from the brand to be produced in delicate Bamboo silk yarn that takes on the glistening appearance of luxurious crushed velvet.
February 15, 2022 – Slipping into something more comfortable before bed is easy thanks to Lunya’s new washable silk separates. Launched last week (and available in five stylish colors), the mulberry silk tank and boxers are perfectly chic alone or paired together, while the laundry-friendly material’s thermoregulating properties will keep you cool and comfortable all night long.
February 15, 2022 – Last week, designer and interior stylist Sarah Ellison launched an enviable collection of furniture at Design Within Reach, ripe with coastal influences from Sarah’s native home of Australia in an elegantly modern context. Although we’re smitten with every piece from the collection, we’re especially drawn to the Alva chair, available in bouclé, linen, or velvet upholstery options (though we’re partial to this stunning Malibu velvet).
February 15, 2022 – Hot sleepers rejoice! If you find your bed’s always sauna-like no matter how high the AC’s cranked up, Casper’s here to save you from your night sweats. Last Tuesday, the bed-in-a-box retailer launched the Foam Pillow with Snow Technology—designed to help you sleep comfortably and an extension of the brand’s Cooling Collection, launched last April. Made with Casper’s ultra-breathable AirScape foam, this cushion is the luxuriously supportive sleep accessory that’ll comfortably cradle your noggin throughout the night.
February 15, 2022 – In December, we announced that The Last Line debuted their first collection of stylish homeware to add some flair to your next dinner party. Now, the California jewelry label is bringing the festivities into the kitchen with a brand-new oven-to-table baking set. Crafted in Talavera ceramic and finished with a charming floral print, each set contains one square and two rectangle ceramic dishes, perfect for family-style meals and sharing homemade treats with friends.
February 15, 2022 – Head over to Braindead’s site, where the L.A.–based design collective just released everything you need to get your wardrobe and home decor in check for spring. When warmer weather starts to resurface, don’t be surprised if you catch us bringing this graphic print deck chair to all of our park hangouts or twinning at home with the matching pajamas.
February 16, 2022 – Meet Uni, the newest bodycare brand that’s bringing you a full system of vitamin-packed washes, serums, and haircare essentials to keep you hydrated and looking fresh. With the purpose of eradicating the marine damage caused by plastic waste, Uni is on a mission to set a new standard in the toiletries industry. In fact, all of Uni’s products are formulated with their proprietary Uni Marine Complex, which contains sustainably sourced, naturally osmotic ingredients that work together with super plants to bio-actively lock in moisture from head-to-toe.
February 16, 2022 – If spring calls for a fresh coat of paint, Backdrop is here to help. Last week, the stylish paint company released three new colors: McQueen (black with a purple tint), Stromboli Chess Club (cornflower blue), and Jawbreaker (rosy mauve). So whether you’re looking to touch up your kitchen cabinets with a vibrant blue or paint your spare bedroom a calming shade of mauve, Backdrop’s got you covered.
February 18, 2022 – We anticipate you’ll want to spend the rest of winter and well into Spring sporting Skims’ new Soft Smoothing Seamless collection, which is versatile, flattering, and oh-so-comfy. The collection is available in four earthy neutrals, and they are perfect for lounging at home or layering for outings. We love the supportive but still comfortable look and feel of the collection’s five not-so-basic styles for just about any occasion.
February 21, 2022 – On Monday, MoMA Design store unveiled a new collaborative apparel line from New Era celebrating the work of renowned contemporary Japanese artist Takashi Murakami. If you’re a fan of the Murakami playful aesthetic, we recommend checking out the line, which includes a selection of the artist’s most well-known motifs including DOB, Kaikai Kiki, and Flowers reproduced across baseball caps, beanies, T-shirts, and more to come.
February 22, 2022 – Multi-disciplinary designer and artist Sarah Sherman Samuel has teamed up with Lulu and Georgia (again!) for a new collection of rugs, pillows, and wallpaper. “The collection is really inspired by nature, and then also by my previous travels—and since we weren’t able to travel a lot at that time, inspired by old hotels and European architecture,” Sarah says. This checkerboard wallpaper is a particular standout to us, thanks to its surprisingly neutral and quirky feel.
February 22, 2022 – Our Place, one of our favorite sources for stylish kitchen essentials (and yours too!), unveiled its newest accessory this week. Designed to perfectly rest in your Always Pan or Perfect Pot, the Fry Deck is the newest addition to the brand’s cooking system that’s here to help you whip up your favorite comfort foods without the added mess or dreaded sogginess (available in Sage, Char, Steam, Spice, and Blue Salt).
February 23, 2022 – This newly launched gooseneck kettle from Public Goods is sure to help you stay warm and cozy through your final weeks of winter hibernation. Designed in sleek stainless steel with an upcycled Ambila wood handle, this hot beverage must-have is the perfect pick-me-up for anyone who likes to wake up with a piping hot coffee or wind down with some herbal tea.
February 24, 2022 – If you’re looking to turn your bedroom into a comfy oasis for spring, look no further than Brooklinen’s limited edition collection of 100% long-staple cotton Classic & Luxe Sheets crafted in neutral hues and vintage-inspired prints. Though it’s a difficult choice, we’d opt for these crescent moon-stamped variation inspired by a print originally found at The Design Library, a vintage textile archive located in the Hudson Valley.
