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.

“In the melding of two very design-forward minds, Parachute and Jake Arnold collaborated on another home launch this week. Unlike their previous moody-hued crossover, this 11-piece line features a soothing sage, olive, and cream color scheme across bedding and pillow covers. Count on pretty floral-inspired prints, too, for a timeless-looking touch of flower power — big or small — in your bedroom.” —Blair Donovan, Style Editor

West Elm
was $179.00

“No matter what your interior aesthetic is, this simple standing shelf is bound to fit right in. It boasts a Scandi-chic appearance with its clean lines, matte white finish, and no-frills silhouette. Most importantly, the storage system has three tiers on which you can store a lot of different items, including bath towels, cosmetics, toilet paper, cleaning products, and more. Its solid steel construction makes this piece perfect for holding heavier items, too. In other words, it won’t waver or shake the way a flimsy plastic shelf might.” —Nikol Slatinska, Commerce Shopping Writer

Five Below

“My boyfriend and I have a mid-century modern nightstand with a shelf that we’ve been using to store cords, some of my beauty products, my jewelry, and some odds and ends. The result of this is that the shelf looked like a hot mess, which had been irritating me (and my boyfriend) for many months. I got the opportunity to test Five Below’s small collapsible crates and see if they worked — despite their low cost of just $3.25 each. My qualms were quickly put to rest. I’m constantly pulling these crates out of their spots on my nightstand shelf and carrying them around; they seem as solid as a non-collapsible bin. I also love the pop of color they provide to our mid-century modern nightstand.” —Alicia Kort, Senior Commerce Editor

“I was recently gifted a vinyl record player by U-Turn Audio, and I'm excited to style it in my living room with a cute stand. After scrolling on Amazon for a little bit, I found a small, 3-tier side table with a decent amount of storage as I build my record collection, plus it'll fit my speakers and CDs. And there are three USB ports and two charging outlets!” —Noella Williams, Assistant News & Culture Editor

“Crayola and Kohl's just teamed up on what might be the cutest capsule collection ever, spanning the categories of home, apparel, arts and crafts, and accessories. So many of the pieces are perfect for holiday gifts, but I'm partial to this set of fleece pillows. They're super-soft, feature a fun, abstract print, and come in at less than $10 a piece (as the set of two is $19.99).” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director
