As a style shopping editor, my day-to-day involves keeping tabs on the latest buzz-worthy products and up-and-coming brands. But I’m not the only in-the-know home expert around here: every week I poll my Apartment Therapy team on their own shopping favorites, compiling an ongoing column of editors’ picks. Designed to bring top finds from our radars straight to your very own space, these lists spotlight everything from home goods we’ve tested and DIY project kickstarters to noteworthy new launches and collaborations.

Because we’ve raved about a lot of different smart, space-saving, and on-trend products over the past few months, I uncover a few of the greatest staff-approved hits of 2022. Below, in no particular order, you’ll find a roundup of the most popular, highly-clicked editors’ picks, including stylish decor, bath staples, and even pet accessories. Read on to see what caught the eyes of editors and readers alike this year, starting at just $13.44.

Brooklinen
$112.50
was $125.00

I'm unsurprised that beloved brand Brooklinen topped this list, especially for their modern (and super comfy!) robe — a fave of Assistant News & Culture Editor Noella Williams from first try-on. “I can't believe that I've gone this long without wearing a bathrobe post-shower,” she says. The green checkered design (which comes in sizes XS to XL) and 100 percent Turkish cotton softness make this “arguably better than any blanket that I've owned,” adds Noella.

Lindye Galloway
$45.00

I’m a summer lover through and through, hence why I gravitated toward this Sea Salt scent from designer Lindye Galloway’s latest candle collection. Promising to “transport you to an inspiring environment,” this candle lives up to that in full with a straight-out-of-the-beach aroma that feels like a constant ode to summer. Even in the dead of winter, it lets me cling to my favorite season just a liiiiittle longer. Not to mention, the pretty, minimalist packaging styles well in every room.

Olive & Linen
$34.00

You can never go wrong with a classic Turkish towel, and Apartment Therapy contributor Stella Totino raves about this (fast-drying!) style from Olive & Linen for its looser weave and overall soft, absorbent design. ”To me, they're a wonderful fusion for those who find terry towels (or other plush towels) too heavy, but want to feel a little more substance than a Turkish towel,” she says. Currently available in three striped colorways, these are also surprisingly sizable, at 40 by 70 inches. They’re “big enough to call bath sheets, in my book,” Totino adds. “I think these would even be perfect for the beach, if you wanted to use them for both.”

Walmart
$13.44

Head in the clouds? How about on one — Home Assistant Editor Savannah West uncovered the perfect comfy pillows from Serta (for just $13.44, to boot!) while staying at her sister’s house. “I had the best sleep I’ve ever had and it’s all because of the pillows on her guest bed,” West explains. “They were literally so fluffy, cool to the touch, and never went flat. The bed was full-sized, but she bought the king-size pillows and they were amazing. I already ordered two for myself.”

Etsy
$29.99

“I got an Instagram ad for this adorable beagle ornament (the algorithm has me in its clutches),” explains Deputy Lifestyle Director Madeline Bilis, who gifted it to her mom for Mother’s Day. “I think doggie-themed decor can be a little tacky sometimes, but I love these cute silhouettes!” In fact, this Etsy shop has just about every dog breed covered, from boxers to dachshunds, so bookmark it for the next time you need a little something for new pet parents — or, of course, a unique accent dedicated to your own pup.

6 / 10
Pattern Brands
$50.00

Colored glassware has taken over 2022 design as a cheery — and just plain fun — take on standard drinking glasses. Specifically, Stella can’t get enough of this funky double-walled pair from Pattern Brands, which she notes “make me feel fancy no matter what I'm drinking (even water!).” As durable as they are beautiful, they’re safe for hot or cold drinks, plus come in three statement-making hues. “I have them on deck for future gifts to friends and fam (and another set for myself TBH),” she says.

7 / 10
World Market
$14.99

Deputy Editor Kelly Dawson says she’s “always in the market for little design details that put a smile on my face,” and this “moon phases” hanging art piece from World Market does just that, and more. With the shimmery gold finish, it almost doubles as a suncatcher when the daylight hits just right, projecting pretty celestial shapes. In terms of styling, Kelly hung this in her bedroom, but she adds that it “would also look great as part of a living room gallery wall or at the end of a long hallway.” Step aside, disco balls, there's a new statement accent in town!

8 / 10
Quince
$39.90
was $89.00

Another editor-favorite pillow pick, Quince’s premium down alternative design — available in both soft/medium and medium/firm densities — comes highly recommended by Mark Marino, Director of Commerce. “If you are looking for soft, fluffy pillows that feel luxurious as your head gently sinks into them, [these have] given me the fancy hotel experience (without having to pay for a room!) and truly changed the way I sleep for the better,” he says.

9 / 10
Parachute
$29.00

Parachute’s Cloud Cotton quilt is my favorite bedding I’ve ever owned, hands-down, so I was elated when they expanded their home offerings earlier this year with a new dining collection — featuring none other than Cloud Cotton napkins. They’re perfect for making even Monday night dinners at home feel like a high-end occasion, or consider these your new go-to hostess gift.

10 / 10
Tuft & Paw
$199.00

After upgrading from her original bought-in-a-pinch litter box, Commerce Manager and new kitten owner Tamara Kraus swears by Tuft & Paw’s (award-winning!) Cove design. “Cat parents: If there’s one product you need to make your home cleaner and prettier, it’s this fancy, functional litter box,” she says. Yes, this skews pricey, but Tamara confirms it’s low-maintenance, includes built-in storage for the scoop and sifter, and fits both her cats at once — and clearly seems to have their stamps of approval, too. Bonus, “the removable frosted sides prevent tracking and hide the contents, which are no longer staring me straight in the face every time I walk by,” she adds. Above all, it's proof that stylish-meets-practical litter boxes do exist.
