Chris’s birthday was a couple weeks ago and he is constantly fighting with his pillows. Stacking. Unstacking. I saw that this one had so many amazing reviews and I ordered it for him for his birthday. And honestly, it hasn’t stopped talking about it. “It’s the greatest–especially for side sleepers. It’s so comfortable. I haven’t had any neck pain since I got it. It’s very supportive and you can customize the height. I love that it keeps its structure without being rigid or having any foam.” I love it when I do a good job on his gifts!
We’ve had the Sonos speaker for years, but we decided to switch over to this speaker after it promised better sound, plus, the girls all have echo dots in their rooms to listen to lullabies at night (it’s true!), so we knew having a central speaker would allow us to drop in to each of their rooms and create a whole intercom system. As far as sound quality goes–it definitely has better bass than a sonos. The mid to high ranges are less clear than a Sonos but we’ve adjusted it and it sounds super clear now. The best part is definitely all of the Alexa features that Sonos just could never 100% deliver on. We paired it with the echo subwoofer for an even better sound experience.
When these candlesticks arrived, it was like loose change. I didn’t even know what I was looking at! They came in three separate pieces and as I was putting it together I was like, “okay, okay–well they were inexpensive so I guess that’s what you get.” But the funniest thing is I’ve moved them around SO much this month. The thin bases look surprisingly high end–you just got to get around them arriving what appears to be in shambles.
Our social media manager, Brooke, has a beautiful Machete watch Apple band ($60+) when she mentioned there was a dupe on Amazon, I figured–it’s worth an order to see how they compare! I ordered one for $18 and I didn’t expect to fall in love with it!! The blonde tortoise is so perfect for fall. I would say that the coloring of hers is a little warmer and the fasteners are silver metal while mine are black. (I don’t mind the black, but I do like the slightly warmer coloring of hers a bit more. However, mine came with the tools to adjust the band and hers didn’t! All in all, a very great dupe!
I’m not sure why I waited until post-summer to order this, but WOWOW I’m so glad I have one now. No more, “Chrissss????” I use a foam sunless tanner and this applicator is SO soft, and long enough to reach my entire back and shoulders with no extra effort on my part. The material is thick and soft and washes out easily. Wish I wouldn’t have waited so long.
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Yesterday was the launch of our new Polly rug collection with Loloi! The support has been overwhelming and we’re so excited to finally share this labor of love with you all.
