As a shopping editor, I always have an ear to the ground for the coolest, smartest, most need-to-know home products — it’s kind of my thing. Now I’m letting you in on the fun, bringing top picks from our editors’ radars straight to your very own space.

Not sure where to shop, or just need some quick inspo? Start here with a weekly rundown of AT editors’ favorite finds, from things we’ve tested, to exciting brand launches, to home project kickstarters. Read on to see what’s got our team buzzing this week.

Yamazaki Home

“This Yamazaki magnetic laundry organizer is great for small spaces because it sticks right onto the side of your washer and dryer and has some great handy features. The small shelf up top is perfect for bottles of detergent, softener, and more. Fair warning that the shelf isn’t very big, though, so you won’t be able to fit bulk buys here; I keep mine on the floor underneath the organizer. The hooks are great for hanging stain remover brushes, and the towel bar comes in clutch as a drying rack.” —Jada Wong, Shopping Director

“With a width of nearly seven inches, the LEHOM slim rolling storage cart really can fit almost anywhere. You may be thinking — seven inches? How much can I really fit on that? A surprising amount, actually. The cart has four tiers that are extremely durable — it can hold up to 66 pounds — and they have a lot of space between them, so you’re free to stack anything you’d like on it. And you don’t have to worry about anything falling off, because every shelf has high guardrails on all sides. If you don’t want the cart to be quite so tall, it also can be adjusted to two or three shelves instead.” —Morgan Pryor, Commerce Editorial Assistant

“I’m already a hardcore Backdrop fan (my own bedroom is coated in their 'Cool Moon'), but the brand’s latest wallpaper collection has me even more smitten. The four-piece line feels equal parts modern, abstract, and whimsical — perfect for perking up blank walls without overtaking the entire space. I especially love the HEAVENLY BODIES design — its small motifs resemble 3D paint strokes.” —Blair Donovan, Shopping Editor

“Measuring less than a foot in width, this Umbra organizer is compact but still manages to hold a lot. That’s because it offers three roomy tiers of storage space, where you can place all kinds of packaged eats, such as granola bars, tea bags, grab-and-go chip bags, and more. Because the tiers sit at different levels, you’ll always be able to see exactly what’s inside your cabinet and keep track of what needs restocking. The organizer’s dividers are also removable, so if you find that its shelves are too narrow to accommodate a certain snack, remove a divider, and you’re all set! You can forever say goodbye to an overcrowded pantry and cupboard.” —Nikol Slaktinska, Shopping Writer

“Hands-down, my favorite piece of furniture in the house is my 'chair and a half' because that’s exactly what it is. It's bigger than an accent chair, but smaller than a loveseat, and perfect for one person to curl up in. I have mine in my home office, which also doubles as a space I like to retreat to watch TV or read a book when I want to be alone. It's the best seat in the house.” —Savannah West, Home Assistant Editor

“I received a cable wrangler (along with a 6-foot charging cable) from Smartish, and it has quickly become a nightstand essential. Now, I don't have to search for the cable on the ground — it just magnetically sticks to the wrangler. So easy!” —Stephanie Nguyen, Cleaning & Organizing Editor

Bergdorf Goodman

“Call me strange, but as a writer, editor, and general words enthusiast, I love the smell of old bookstores, and D.S. & Durga’s Be Still candle, well, smells just like one. I’ve been lighting it as I write for a little bit of inspiration and ambiance.” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director
