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.

1 / 8

“I went to the Baggu store and got this bag that went viral on TikTok. I’m a tote bag girl, but this isn’t weighing my shoulders down.” —Noella Williams, Assistant News & Culture Editor

2 / 8

"TikTok introduced me to this type of super-cool frame that swings open and stores additional prints inside. I think it's ingenious for parents of artsy kids and/or people who just like switching out their photos often." —Alison Goldman, Special Projects Director

3 / 8

“I finally got my nightstands in, so I was on the hunt for small bedside table lamps. I found these ones from Etsy to sit right on top, and they’re so cute and compact!” —Stephanie Nguyen, Cleaning & Organizing Editor

4 / 8
was $29.99

“This could be the sexiest storage container of all time. It’s metal, it’s very hefty and not flimsy. It’s got a nice wooden top that looks very moderne. I’ll probably get a lot more for a lot of different places.” —Adrienne Breaux, Real Homes Director

5 / 8

“I’ve seen this white storage bench all over TikTok, but every time I tried to buy it, it was sold out. I finally saw it available and ordered one immediately. It came assembled, is super-deep, and stores all the baby clothes I don’t want to put out. People have told me that since I have a kid now, I can’t keep my modern, neutral design style, and this bench is me protesting that.” —Savannah West, Home Assistant Editor

6 / 8
Cold Picnic

“I’ve officially hit my spring redecorating crisis, but I’m starting small with a bathroom makeover. Mine’s in dire need of some color, and, practically on cue, Cold Picnic just debuted four new bath mats this week. Each essentially looks like a punchy piece of abstract modern art on your bathroom floor. I opted for the seafoam-green Pollinators design, which lends a bright, airy vibe to my windowless room (a first!) that makes me smile every time I go in. It also stays put getting in and out of the shower, thanks to non-slip backing. One small change — major bathroom transformation.” —Blair Donovan, Style Editor

7 / 8
Solo Stove
was $89.99

“It’s been a (very) long winter, but Solo Stove's Mesa has made the cold (somewhat) more bearable. I can’t use traditional fire pits with my wooden deck, so this outdoor tabletop fire pit has been the next best thing. It’s small so it doesn’t crowd the table, but it still produces a good amount of heat and the fire is safe for roasting marshmallows for s’mores, too — talk about cozy winter vibes!” —Jada Wong, Shopping Director

8 / 8

“With shipping delays and longer-than-usual lead times, it’s never too early to start thinking about your outdoor furniture situation. I just bought this all-weather dining table from the Target and Studio McGee collection last week, and I can’t wait to set it up on my deck for al fresco meals when the weather warms up. The top features a fool-the-eye marble finish, and the matte-black metal legs will look great with the bistro chairs I’m eyeing to pair with it.” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director
