September 10, 2021 – Last week, West Elm expanded its upholstery line to include over 400 options—including material finishes like rich velvet, cozy linen, and sharp-looking tweed in a range of fall-appropriate colors. To unveil the exciting expansion, the brand tapped celebrated photographer William Wegman who, along with his beloved team of Weimaraners, showcased the brand’s new offerings in a series of thoughtful portraits that paired the furniture and canine muses in loving poses.

September 13, 2021 – Haute towel brand BAINA has joined forces with the soap gurus at Binu Binu for a collab that cleans up quite nicely if we do say so ourselves. Right now you can head to either retailer to scope out the duo’s collaborative efforts in the form of a very stylish yellow-and-gray checkerboard hand towel complemented by two of Binu Binu’s Korean-bathhouse-inspired soaps—one made with rice milk and shea butter and the other a sea salt and peppermint bar.

September 13, 2021 – Cozy Earth, the brand with Oprah’s stamp of approval and the sleep creatives behind some of our favorite cooling sheets, has released a new line of ultra-comfortable rib-knit loungewear. Made of a seriously cozy bamboo viscose and available in a variety of women’s styles, including dresses, tops, and bottoms, this collection will make a welcome addition to your cold-weather loungewear rotation this upcoming fall and winter.

September 13, 2021 – The Gap has teamed up with Walmart for a home collection of chic bedding, kitchen, and home essentials. While you won’t find any “Gap” mega-logo sheets or duvets to match your favorite hoodie, you can expect colorful bedding, serveware, and bath decor in timeless designs and classic silhouettes to spruce up your space.

September 14, 2021 – Brightland is celebrating National Honey Month with two new honeys to start your fall on a sweet note. Sourced directly from third- and fourth-generation beekeeping families in Kauai, Hawaii, and California’s Central Valley, the two sweet flavors—Kauai Wildflower Honey and California Orange Blossom Honey—offer the natural health benefits, aroma, texture, and flavor of pure raw honey. They also mark the brand’s first venture outside the realms of olive oil and vinegar.

September 14, 2021 – This week, up-and-coming sustainable home brand Eddi released elegant stainless steel–and–zinc alloy hand-soap dispensers to elevate your sink-side decor. Created in collaboration with Box Clever (the award-winning industrial design firm behind Caraway Home), the Eddi dispenser is available in vibrant colors like cornflower blue and midnight teal. Its modern design and aromatic hand soaps make for a stylishly sustainable duo that will help you easily eliminate wasteful plastics.

September 14, 2021 – If you’ll need a boost of energy in between apple-picking and hay rides this fall, check out Moon Juice’s newest release. Ting is a mango-flavored vitamin B12 powder with ingredients like B-complex and adaptogenic ginseng that aim to “support brain function, cellular energy, mood and metabolism.” It was originally created because Moon Juice’s Amanda Chantal Bacon wanted an at-home alternative to vitamin B12 shots, and the founder says Ting has quickly become her hydration must-have by helping her drink more water throughout the day.

September 14, 2021 – We’ve been smelling something sweet in the air—but that might just be because Otherland has dropped its newest fall candle collection, Homestead. Comprised of six cozy scents for the season (each with its own lively artwork by New York–based artist and designer Happy Menocal), this new line is all about serenity spent in the comfort of your own home and enjoying the moments and aromas that make the season unique.

September 14, 2021 – Backed by Jay-Z and Rihanna, Partake is the inclusive food brand you’ll be snacking on all season long. Its line of gluten-free, vegan, and allergy-friendly cookies and baking mixes (including limited-edition pumpkin spice cookies for fall!) have already garnered rave reviews, and now the brand has gone savory with the introduction of its new pizza crust mix. What’s more: Partake says the dough would even make an ideal base for other delicious treats like calzones, breadsticks, rolls, and garlic knots.

September 15, 2021 – If your plans for fall entail staying cozied up under a big blanket, this one’s for you. Bearaby has just released its best-selling Tree Napper weighted blanket in a brand-new lineup of nature-inspired hues. The blanket is available in 15-, 20-, and 25-pound weights, and the warm color palette includes five woodsy hues (maple, mahogany, cocoa, driftwood, and ironbark) we think would make the perfect addition to your decor—especially if “upstate cabin in the woods” is your vibe for autumn.

September 15, 2021 – Bokksu, the go-to source for delicious Japanese snacks, just launched a new collection of Japanese-made kitchen essentials that dares to ask “What if you used a pair of scissors to cut your pizza?” In addition to its ingenious pizza scissors, the brand has released a full array of must-have items like beautiful glassware, handsome kitchen knives, and even a DIY tofu kit with everything you need to make tasty tofu from your own home.

September 15, 2021 – Parachute makes some of our favorite bedding, so we’re happy to announce the refreshing home brand has recently launched three thoughtfully designed bed frames to awaken your space. Designed by Parachute’s in-house team, each bed frame (Canyon, Dune, and Horizon) is elegantly minimal and inspired by the brand’s birthplace of Los Angeles—from the curves of Laurel Canyon to the dunes of the Mojave. Available in highly comfortable upholstery options and a range of neutral hues like charcoal, cream, gray, and oatmeal, this release also marks the brand’s first-ever venture into furniture—with more pieces to come.

September 16, 2021 – You’ll need something to hold all those pumpkin spice lattes, chai teas, and cafe lattes come fall, so why not opt for one of YOWIE’s unique chug mugs? Each mug is handmade by Copenhagen-based Studio Arhoj and available in a dreamy array of celestial-like gradients of blue, lilac, and orange. But hurry! These definitely won’t stick around for long.
