“Sorry, Stanley tumblers, but Corkcicle is my drink(ware) of choice. I’m currently eyeing their new web-exclusive periwinkle cold cup XL.” —Stephanie Nguyen, Cleaning & Organizing Editor

“My sister gifted me this candle as a housewarming present and I love the musky aroma. It's not overwhelming when it burns, and when it's not lit, the yellow-green vessel is such a fun pop of color on my mantel. I didn't know about this line of Target candles before, but I'm so glad I do now, ahead of gifting season — especially ‘the scent of cancelled plans.’ On a snowy winter day, I can't imagine any better smell.” —Sofia Rivera, Associate Lifestyle Editor

John Robshaw

“Designer John Robshaw has just partnered with Cloth & Co. on another exclusive collection, and the new printed linen fabrics truly run the gamut, from ditsy florals to beautiful birding scenes and graphic geometrics. Pick your pattern and your silhouette — chairs, beds, benches, and beyond — and it’ll be custom-made for you in about three weeks’ time. I’m partial to the Shiza Ottoman in the Sadhil Moss Cotton Linen material. The quatrefoil shape and button detailing is so special, and it’d be lovely teamed up with a vanity or used in a pair under an entryway console table.” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director

Urban Outfitters

“Take the arguably least glamorous chore and make it, dare I say, fun with the Staff Toilet Plunger. The colorful acrylic handle comes in multiple shades and is adorned with their signature smiley face. You likely won't mirror the smile while using it, but the happy touch counts.” —Cullen Ormond, Associate Home Editor

Rugs USA

“We’re happy to relay the news that Rugs USA just launched a sophisticated new collection in tandem with fashion designer Prabal Gurung. The release features 28 new designs and a wide range of materials, patterns, and price points. Some of the new drops are even washable! The collection, titled “West Meets East,” encapsulates Gurung’s love for New York City and his native Nepal. As a result, you’ll find both contemporary elements and traditional motifs among his fabulous creations. It doesn’t matter if you like to stick with neutrals or play with vibrant colors — you’ll find something here that suits your fancy.” —Nikol Slatinska, Commerce Shopping Writer
