Ever wanted to be ahead of the home-shopping curve and one of the first to know about cool under-the-radar brands? Enter Nordstrom. Already touting editor-favorite brands like Marimekko, Our Place, and Diptyque, the department store just welcomed even more exciting names (both big and small) to its well-curated portfolio. (Psst: Even if you’re not an avid Nordy shopper, this is major.)

Here’s the deal: Nordstrom recently launched its first brick-and-mortar home shop in the New York City flagship store. The two-story experience showcases new essentials from the likes of Great Jones, MoMA Design Store, and so much more. And, arguably the best part, there’s also a handful of smaller, up-and-coming home designers like LSA and Estelle Colored Glass to put on your radar. Nordstrom added a local component, too, bringing some lesser-known New York-based brands to the forefront. And don’t worry, you don’t have to live in the Big Apple to shop these styles. With a few exceptions, you’ll find the same home treasures available on Nordstrom’s website.

I got a chance to scope out the new offerings and discover the brands IRL … let me just say, they’re good — as to be expected from Nordstrom, of course. Below, see some of my favorite finds and notable names worth adding to your home goods repertoire (and living space).

1 / 6

Soft, cozy, and lounge-appropriate: That's the mantra of Sunday Citizen, which makes the snuggliest blankets, throws, pillows, and beyond. Bonus points for the fun prints, too, like this palm-frond-inspired accent (or a cute animal pattern!).

2 / 6

Behold, one of the most exciting new Nordstrom brands — MoMA Design Store. Bring home museum-worthy style with a handful of ultra-modern, unique creations, like this counter-enhancing bowl. There’s plenty of holiday gifting potential at MoMA, too. (Hint: the multi-functional vase is one of my faves.)

You may have come across Quiet Town via Instagram at some point (that’s how I found them). If not, all you need to know is that the Brooklyn-based brand started with a mission to make bathrooms less boring. That means punchy geometric shower curtains, boho bath mats, and all the accessories you need to bring a bit of well-crafted design to a (tradtionally) not-so-glamorous space. You really can’t go wrong with any Quiet Town creation, but I especially love the colors and patterns at play on this mat.

If you like what you see here from this Levi’s collab, Thompson Street Studio has plenty more patchwork perfection where these coasters came from. The New York-founded brand takes leftover fabrics and turns them into embroidered pillows, quilts, and more — all with a modern, fresh feel. In fact, the quilts can easily double as wall art.

There are wine glasses — and then there are handblown, mix-and-matchable, pretty-hued wine glasses from Estelle Colored Glass. The now-at-Nordstrom business is named after founder Stephanie Summerson Hall’s grandmother, who had an antiquing affinity, especially for colored glass pieces. Now Stephanie brings that look to life with a series of heirloom-quality drinkware available in pastel or jewel tones. Pick out a single-colored set of six, or go ombré with different pairs stacked on your bar cart.

Within Nordstrom’s bracket of up-and-coming independent home brands, you’ll find London-based LSA. This studio also specializes in handmade glass goods, like design-centric vases, drinking glasses, and candle holders. Each piece looks equally cool and contemporary, but this one, in particular, caught my eye for its shape, texture, and color.
