"You probably know Burrow best from their couches, but the DTC brand just launched their first foray into outdoor furniture this past Wednesday. I got a sneak peek at their NYC showroom back in February, and having looked at a lot of all-weather pieces in my day, I have to say the whole Outdoor Collection is a super-thoughtful reaction to improve what’s on the market already. Just like their indoor offerings, the outdoor sofas are modular, require almost zero assembly (but can be broken down for easy off-season storage), and while sturdy and substantial, are super-comfy, too. I sat on the Relay sectional and admired the pitch — you really feel like you’re lounging back and sinking into the seat. Same goes for the Banks Outdoor Chair, which is a beautiful wicker lounger that comes in two finishes— natural rope and black — and will hold up to all the elements. The assortment also includes a powder coated coffee table and dining table/chairs, too." —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director

"The best way to avoid having unused or underutilized corners is to set them up with storage or shelving units that work for your space. This versatile Amazon find fits in any size living room, bedroom, or home office, and it’s an especially smart solution for small spaces. Plus, it looks way more chic than its $70 price point would let on." —Nic Dobija-Nootens, Commerce SEO Writer

"There’s something to be said for organizers that don’t merely add more clutter to the room they occupy, which is why your best bet is to find something that’s simultaneously small and able to hold a lot. For that, our go-to brand here at AT is Yamazaki. That’s where we stumbled upon this adjustable shoe rack, which is compact enough to fit just about anywhere — even in the tiniest of homes." —Nikol Slatinska, Editorial Assistant

"I’ve been searching for a way to brighten up these dreary days, and I just may have found the solution in Nearly Natural’s 82-Inch Artificial Olive Tree. I got the opportunity to try one out in my apartment, and I have to say that it adds some much-needed oomph and a bit of Sicilian sunshine to my tiny New York City space. The brown, slightly rough tree trunk looks and feels very much like actual wood, with realistic green leaves (they’re polyester) extending upward from the branches. Scattered throughout the branches are plump plastic olives in shades of green and purplish-black that indicate their different levels of ripeness." —Mark Marino, Executive Director of Commerce

"If my extensive candle collection is any indication, I pride myself on maintaing a good-smelling apartment. But for a longer-lasting fragrance boost, I’ve recently been turning to the new line of room ‘deodorants’ from Homecourt, Courtney Cox’s home and cleaning brand. These better-than-an-air-freshener sprays come in a beautiful minimalist vessel with four different scent options (all of which linger in a space well after the first spritz). At $45 a pop, they're on the pricier side, but stay true to the company’s tagline of ‘beauty products for the home.’” —Blair Donovan, Style Editor
