If you’re sick of searching high and low for your keys every time you leave the house, it’s time to consider this magnetic key rack, which gives your keys a home to call their own.

Blonde wood warms up any space. Bring some brightness into your home with these hand-carved wooden plates. Made from New England ash and hand-finished wood in Vermont, these plates bring a little clean-lined elegance (and a taste of the outdoors) to your kitchen table.
Is it a table lamp or is it a cool contemporary art piece? We’d argue both—and should mention that Tom Raffield’s designs Hanter Table Light won “Best Emerging Luxury British Brand” at the 2017 British Luxury Awards, so, you know, it’ll make you much fancier.

We’re going to call this one like we see it: This electric tea kettle makes other electric tea kettles look like ancient garbage.

Nothing beats a good shower, but it’s not always easy finding the best towels. Let’s be real: even if you wash them regularly, towels build up bacteria over time, and changing out your towels completely is key to a good spring cleaning session For an instant upgrade, try these Onseen towels, which are super absorbent and dry quickly—preventing mildew, mold, and musty smells. Even better, they get softer and softer with every wash, and are made of long-staple cotton that’s Oeko-Tex certified (which means they’re more environmentally-friendly than your old towels).
Cast concrete is such a cool material, and it goes with absolutely everything. These hand-textured, hand-pigmented moon coasters will look cool on every surface of your home, and they come with a soft backing, so they won’t scratch, too.
Make your warm-weather cocktails pop in these very on-trend pineapple tumblers. A cool summertime addition to your bar cart, these copper cups will keep your drinks cold (and you feeling so, so good).
Candles are great for some added winter coziness, but this ultrasonic essential oil diffuser is perfect for spring time. What makes this particular diffuser stand out is that it doesn’t actually use heat. Instead, it uses ultrasonic vibrations to get your favorite scent going. Plus, it streams at time intervals of your choosing (with an automatic shutoff after six hours), so it’s great for drifting off to sleep.
This spring, add some drama and color to your home with an authentic vintage Turkish rug. These unique, handmade rugs are carefully sourced by experts who ensure their high quality (and revitalize their color and patterns with specialized methods).
