“I’m always looking for decorative accessories that are also functional, so I love the concept behind the new brand Obshay. Think: gorgeous, decorative, marble-look orb-shaped objects for your shelves or surfaces that just happen to also double as ergonomic weights. Right now the collection includes the Swirl 4 pounds and Swirl 7 pounds, available in both white and black marble colorways. You can also buy crystal display bases for them, too. The idea is that seeing them, say, while you're working or watching TV might inspire you to pick them up and squeeze in a quick workout whenever you have a second throughout the day.” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director

“Breaking spooky-season news: Anthropologie just launched its first Halloween collection, so October 31 enthusiasts can celebrate (and decorate) in style. Think: pretty pumpkin-shaped decorative objects, festive candle holders, and even a life-sized rattan bat (trust me, it’s cute). Browse quickly, as the line’s already selling out!” —Blair Donovan, Shopping Editor

Rifle Paper Co.

“Rifle Paper Co. just released three new peel-and-stick wall covering patterns for preorder, and the Colette design is so darling. The oranges and yellows feel very ‘70s and I love how they look with the gold and pink accents — it's the perfect summer-to-fall transition. The paper is also washable and removable (renter-friendly!), which of course means I can't stop imagining it in every corner of my apartment.” —Sofia Rivera, Associate Lifestyle Editor

Revival Rugs

“Made from recycled polyester that’s highly durable, OEKO-TEX certified for safety, mildew-resistant, and machine-washable, the Gambit Rug is the latest in a line of chic, washable releases from Revival Rugs that elevate the idea of what a washable rug can be. Unlike other washable rugs, this piece is not a mat, but a real-deal rug: thick and soft to cushion every step. Coming in at about a half-inch thick, this rug features a classic medium pile that’s so soft it’s hard to believe it is washable. Best of all, it features a super-trendy checkerboard print.” —Sarah Vazquez, Commerce SEO Editor

Sobel Westex

“The Sahara Nights Pillow is the top seller from Sobel Westex, a brand that provides linens to hotels and resorts around the globe. Its quilted outer shell is made from 233-thread-count, 100-percent cotton that’s lightweight and smooth to the touch. On the inside, it’s gently filled with ultra-fine microfiber that’s been infused with gel to help regulate body temperature. The pillow is recommended for stomach and side sleepers due to its medium-soft feel; however, a firmer model of the pillow is available.” —Britt Franklin, Best List Editor
