Every month I keep an eye on our new House Tours for inspiration (of course), but also as a way to find good products and see how people fit them into their spaces. While many of the homes we feature include tons of vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces, there are always great finds from brands we know and love—and it’s even better when those products are still available online to buy. This month, I rounded up my favorite House Tour finds that you can shop right now, including some old reliables (hello, inexpensive Wayfair sofa) and some unexpected surprises (a sink from Rejuvenation!).

Avery Wall Mural

There’s a lot to love in Larissa May’s sustainably-minded Williamsburg apartment, but I especially love this vignette. The main attraction is the gorgeous wall mural from Minted, which is basically the most genius, renter-friendly solution to white walls. Throw in the sculptural West Elm side table, roomy chairs, and velvet shell pillow, and you’ve got a nook that seems very hard to leave.

Buy: Avery Wall Mural, starts at $275 from Minted

Mercury Row Garren Sofa

You don’t have to spend a ton of money on a new sofa, as proven by this navy blue find from Wayfair. Found in Tola Akinbiyi’s Chicago space, this affordable mid-century modern sofa has a boxy silhouette, track arms, and tapered legs, plus comes with two bolster pillows. It contrasts nicely against Tola’s white walls, and I especially love how she decided to pair it with dark accent pillows instead of brightly colored ones.

Buy: Mercury Row Garren Sofa, $399.99 $299.99 from Wayfair

Alape Bucket Sink

Did you know you can buy sinks from West Elm’s sister store Rejuvenation? The retailer is known particularly for its lighting selection, but this sink is making us feel emotions we’ve never felt for a sink before. I spotted it in Megan and Austin Forbes’ North Carolina home, and it fits perfectly in their renovated bathroom (the home is over 100 years old!).

Bearaby Cotton Napper

We’ve written about Bearaby’s weighted blankets before, but seeing them in Liz Moody’s Brooklyn apartment (she has two!) really turned me into a big fan. Liz chose the serene, light gray color for her bedroom, and the cheerful, bright yellow option for her living room—and both look extremely comfy in their respective places. The Cotton Napper is currently out of stock (you can join the waitlist), but the TENCEL Tree Napper is still available.

Buy: Bearaby Cotton Napper, $249 from Bearaby

Smeg Refrigerator

It’s always fun to spot a Smeg refrigerator in a tour, and Kelly Siebe’s New Mexico home is no exception. Available at West Elm (who knew?), this retro fridge comes in five colors and has been upgraded with all the modern amenities you’d want. The mint color suits this bright, open, and airy kitchen perfectly, giving it an eclectic vibe that doesn’t overwhelm the small space.

Buy: Smeg Refrigerator, $2999 from West Elm

GDF Studio Dumont Settee

Have a tiny dining area that sits close to a wall? Instead of setting chairs around the entire table, use a bench or small sofa instead. This checkered settee found in Rydhima and Sirtaj Brar’s Los Angeles apartment totally transforms their dining space, and works well paired with the oval dining table and wishbone chairs (which are from Amazon!).

Buy: GDF Studio Dumont Settee, $359.99 $305.99 from Houzz

Stevens Filing Cabinet & Hutch

There’s nothing like a good multifunctional furniture piece to really get me excited, and this hutch found in Sarah Crowley and Jeff Marini’s Chicago apartment is one of my favorite finds of the month. Featuring both open shelving and hidden storage, it’s a simple yet smart and stylish solution for home offices and living rooms.

Buy: Stevens Filing Cabinet & Hutch, $414.98 $390 from AllModern

Oversized Round Mirror

Blueland CEO Sarah Paiji Yoo chose this round West Elm mirror for her NYC apartment, and the result is striking. Everything about this space is big and bold, from the huge art piece and deep sofa to the large plant and double coffee tables, so the oversized mirror is an ideal choice to complete the look. It’s expensive, but certain colors are 20 percent off right now.
