August 2, 2023 — If you’re looking for a twist on your current couch decor, we highly recommend the recently released Neutral Collection by Jiu Jie. With eight neutral shades available in baby, double knot, and large-size cushions, it’s easy to mix and match (they are neutrals, after all). We specifically like the texture this bouclé material adds, especially if you’ve got the right accent chair to match.
August 4, 2023 — Couldn’t get enough of LoveShackFancy Founder Rebecca Hessel Cohen’s NYC town house? Neither could we—which is why we were delighted to finally see the brand’s collaboration with Gap go live last month. We think we’ve found the perfect farmers market tote in this floral design that looks extra roomy.
August 8, 2023 — Soft Brutalism was the inspiration behind Maiden Home’s latest home collection, with each piece thoughtfully designed to showcase timeless, sculptural silhouettes. The Hyde chair is a specific stand out with a handcrafted white oak frame and Italian leather upholstery that will patina beautifully with use.
August 8, 2023 — For anyone who likes to host, a few of these stackable stools from Burrow’s new dining collection seem like a smart pick-up. Available in walnut or oak and easy to assemble, these seats are also an eye-catching way to prop up plants, spare coffee table books, or a few of your favorite candles too.
August 10, 2023 — Last month, A24 teamed up with Rubik’s to give the classic game cube an Everything Everywhere All at Once makeover. While there may be over one thousand versions of Michelle Yeoh’s Evelyn Wang character in the multiverse, this design features six standouts on each of its sides for both play and display.
August 14, 2023 — Aesop’s newest soaps are the only ones you’ll find in our showers this fall. The three new bars are formulated to cleanse, invigorate, and buff—revealing your best skin yet. Made with a plant-derived glycerin and sustainable palm oil, olfactory highlights include bergamot, ylang ylang, sage leaf, rosemary, lavender, and more.
August 15, 2023 — Clothes-clinging dust and dirt are no match for latest from Staff. Last month, the brand who previously brought you some of the most fashionable toilet accessories on the market released a very stylish lint roller in an easy-to-spot fluorescent colorway. After swiping, just rinse the roller under warm water and voilà—it’s ready to be reused dozens of times.
August 15, 2023 — It’s easy to think of Urban Outfitters as a one-stop-shop to supplement your fall wardrobe, but the brand is fighting to take up space in the rest of your home with its newest furniture and decor releases. UO is re-envisioning interiors through three thoughtful collections: Retro Roomies, Deco Dreams, and Modern Natural. There’s plenty of lovely design finds among them to liven up your space for the season—like this curvy coffee table with sturdy-looking legs.
August 16, 2023 — With that long-awaited vacation in tow, you might be in the market for some new luggage. Thankfully, Monos’s newly launched colorway, Sage, will make sure your belongings are stylishly safe. Inspired by “America’s vast desertscape,” the limited-edition hue is available in all sizes of the brand’s core luggage line—bon voyage!

The deluxe bundle includes an ultra-thin Vivobook S 15 OLED, carrying case, and portable mouse—all adorned with a never-before-seen BAPE camo print—as well as keyboard stickers and a collectable Baby Milo figurine.
August 17, 2023 — Venus et Fleur added new dahlia mixed arrangements to its roster of everlasting florals last month and we think they’re a delightful pop of color to add to your tabletops (or to surprise someone special). Arrangement are available in various porcelain vessels and in two colorways: a vibrant ‘fuchsia’ and soothing ‘meadow.’
August 22, 2023 — If you’re looking to turn your bedroom into a cozy oasis for fall, the newest items from Brooklinen’s organic cotton collection are here to help. Made of 100% GOTS (and OEKO-TEX)-certified organic material, the airy sheets and coordinating quilt sets that make up the expansion are what bedding dreams are made of.
August 22, 2023 — We love a fashionable bathroom moment—and this collaboration from Tubby Todd and Lisa Says Gah definitely fits the bill. Marrying LSG’s signature food-inspired prints with Tubby Todd’s all-natural body care products, the result is an apple-scented wash and lotion duo with charming labels to look sweet on your countertop.
August 22, 2023 — Internet-fave beauty brand Glossier celebrated the launch of their Stretch Fluid Foundation last week, and in tandem with the new cosmetics, a new beauty tool that caught our eye. With a travel-friendly swivel and curved design, the compact brush expertly contours the face while a targeted tip can blend hard-to-reach areas.
August 22, 2023 — We think the new sleepwear that just launched at Tekla is cause for some celebration. In case you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect T-shirt and boxers for bedtime (or running errands), look no further than the unisex silhouettes—like these handsome striped cotton bottoms—from the Scandi lifestyle brand.
August 23, 2023 — Troye Sivan’s Melbourne home will always hold a special place in our hearts (and our archives), so you can only imagine or excitement when the Australian singer launched his new fragrance project, Tsu Lange Yor (“to long years,” in Yiddish). In an interview with associate digital features editor Rachel Davies, Troye said that “interiors are obviously something that I’ve always loved in a really personal way for myself, but sharing it with you guys and seeing the reaction, I realized maybe other people like the same things that I like.”
August 25, 2023 — Stay cozy in crisp, fall weather with your favorite new sweatshirt from Houseplant. Available in washed black and heritage brown colorways, we can’t think of a better uniform to lounge around the house (or maybe even take a well-deserved smoke break).
August 25, 2023 — We feel like taking a long nap after the summer we’ve had. Lucky for us, Sixpenny, one of our favorite furniture brands, unveiled a new line of sleeper sofas in August. Upholstered in the brand’s signature cotton linen and available in three different designs (Neva, Devyn, and Aria), don’t be surprised if you find houseguests begging to stay a few more nights.
August 29, 2023 — If you love ginger ale but not the added sugar, Olipop’s latest flavor launch should satisfy your cravings. Containing five grams of sugar, prebiotics, and fiber to aid digestive health, the brand’s addition to its mix of fruity fun and traditional flavors (which include vintage cola, lemon lime, and banana cream) is the ideal supplement to any meal or snack break.
August 29, 2023 — This week, Anthropologie launched its new home collaboration with French foodie It-girl and author Mimi Thorisson—and we immediately added everything to our fall wish list. At the top? These delicate plates with a sweet hand-painted trim detail.
August 31 , 2023 — Head over to Byredo, where you can shop the brand’s newly released Sweet Grass candle, a fragrant ode to plants and herbs. Clary sage and sweet mirabelle are complemented by woody orris and ciste, for a transformative scent that’s just the thing to cleanse and purify your space.
