As a shopping editor, I always have an ear to the ground for the coolest, smartest, most need-to-know 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 and exciting brand launches to home project kickstarters. Read on to see what’s got our team buzzing this week.

1 / 7

"I had been eyeing Mitzi's Flora Chandelier pretty much since I spotted it in Jenna Pilant's "Walls That Wow" room at Small/Cool NYC in April. Well, I finally went for it for my dining area, and it looks exactly as I'd hoped." —Alison Goldman, Special Projects Editor

"I’m not usually one to fawn over drinking glasses (and have zero complaints about my current IKEA go-to’s), but Ichendorf Milano’s Laguna Tumblers from Food52 stopped me in my online shopping tracks. I mean — the squiggled rims! The fluted silhouettes! Excuse me while I clear my kitchen cabinets for my new forever everyday set." —Blair Donovan, Style Editor

"For the most part, especially as a career product tester, I do believe you get what you pay for. Among the few exceptions is the BISSELL Featherweight Stick Vacuum, the under-$35 answer to keeping a clean home without shelling out hundreds — if not thousands — for the tools to do so. When I purchased the Featherweight vacuum, I was working on a move to NYC with little to no spare cash… or space for that matter. Not only am I amazed at the heavy-duty jobs it’s handled over the years, but the fact that it’s still going strong is beyond me. Let’s just say, it continues to earn it’s spot as a Best List winner for a reason." —Kendall Cornish, Best List Writer

PSTR studio
was $49.00

"There’s a gigantic empty wall in my kitchen I’ve been trying to find some fun art for. I finally found it in the form of this Negroni poster from PSTR studio. I ordered it right before all the negroni sbagliato TikToks made the rounds, but I love it all the same. The primary colors make it pop on a bright white wall, and the list of ingredients means I’ll never forget how to make my favorite cocktail." —Maddie Bilis, Deputy Lifestyle Director

Surf Shack Puzzles

"I've been brainstorming holiday gift ideas lately, and I'm so into these puzzles that I might just get them for myself! They're from Surf Shack Puzzles, a Native Hawaiian- and woman-owned company. Their puzzles are gorgeous and feature vibrant, beautiful designs by female artists, too. Seriously, you’ll want to display them as art pieces when you’re done putting them together." —Stephanie Nguyen, Cleaning & Organizing Editor

Susan Alexandra

"I’ve admired Susan Alexandra’s colorful handbags, jewelry, and housewares for a couple of years now. With their cheeky motifs and bright colors, the brand's pieces play into the whole trend of bringing more joy and whimsy into the home. That’s why I love the recently launched Ketel One Botanical x Susan Alexandra collaboration. Once again, Susan Alexandra has translated her spunky aesthetic (inspired here by the three Ketel One Botanical varietals) into perfect-for-the-holidays pieces, including hand-blown glass straws, beaded coasters, and a Beverage Bag sized just-right for a bottle of Ketel (that is, if you’re of age to drink). I’m eyeing the Spritz Napkins. They’re just the thing to fancy up a bar cart or living room side table and can be used any season, really." —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director

7 / 7
was $48.00

"My boyfriend and I went to Morocco in September, and I wanted to buy so many things that we didn’t have room for in our bags. For my birthday, he ordered these beautiful tea glasses from Sheherazade Home to remind us of our vacation — and with no crushed luggage-induced panic involved." —Tara Bellucci, News and Culture Director
