By Lauren Conklin
You shopped, we listened. Read on to see the most cherished goods chosen by Dwell readers this year.
East Fork Mug
Mugs tend to pile up in your cupboard. You get one from a gift shop at a National Park, another at a holiday gift exchange, another at a craft fair. Like your stuffed animals when you were a kid, you take turns using each one cuz you kinda feel bad for them. Until this one came along.
Marimekko Orkanen Queen Sheet Set
The grey and white Orkanen sheet set is made with 300-thread-count 100% cotton percale for a smooth, crisp feel.
Thuma The Bed
Each bed is inherently unique, featuring the natural imperfections of handcrafted, repurposed wood. No MDF or Veneers. Natural walnut coloring boasts unique wood grains and knots. Subtle color variances are to be expected and celebrated.
HAY Cat Sponge
Colorful shaped sponges that make washing the dishes a little bit more fun. HAY’s sponges come in a variety of playful designs.
House Industries Neutra Modern House Numbers
In 2001, renowned design studio House Industries partnered with the estate of late architect Richard Neutra – whose notable projects include the Kaufmann House (1947) in Palm Springs, the Lovell Health House (1929) in Los Angeles and the Kronish House (1955) in Beverly Hills, among others – to...
Avocado Green Pillow
Our non-toxic pillow has a customizable GOLS organic certified latex and GOTS organic certified kapok fill. The fill is stuffed within an inner organic jersey cotton liner. The liner lives inside a machine-washable, zippered GOTS organic certified quilted cotton cover.
Lékué Collapsible Silicone Popcorn Popper
Pippity poppity. You can do a lot better than microwave popcorn in the bag—opt for this silicone popper and you’ll see the difference right away. For one, it was actually designed in collaboration with the Alícia Foundation based on scientific research (it’ll pop over 90% of the kernels!).
Eldon Solid Color Sheet Set
Spruce up your teen’s restful retreat with this essential sheet set, including a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and pillowcase(s). Crafted from brushed microfiber, it fosters an inviting atmosphere while resisting wrinkling, staining, and fading to keep the ensemble looking crisp.
Yamazaki Wood-Handled Dish Rack
You wash, I’ll dry. We finally found it! A dish rack that looks neat on your countertop and (dare we say) is good looking. The Japanese design is minimalist: a white steel frame with walnut handles.
Afteroom Story Bookcase
Book storage is difficult in small spaces. With a small footprint, and discreet frame, Story Bookcase was designed to make the most of your space and show off books and other collectibles. “We simply want to create things people won’t get rid of,” says Story designer Chen-Yen.
Wild One Toy Kit
Tug, toss, and chew your heart out. Bundle our Triangle Tug, Twist Toss, and Bolt Bite, and get all the Wild One toys your dog will love. Made with 100% natural rubber, 100% organic cotton, and designed so you don’t have to compromise on aesthetics or functionality.
Parachute Down Alternative Side Sleeper Pillow
Break the wake, flip and fluff cycle of side sleeping on a regular pillow. Our medium-density side sleeper pillow offers unparalleled support and perfect plushness.
Bamboozle Bamboo Compost Bin
A modern compost bin that eliminates food waste and looks damn good in the process. For nearly everyone, food waste is an inevitable part of daily life.
World Market Blush and Charcoal Geometric Wool Kilim Calypso Area Rug
Handwoven of wool with a geometric design in blush and charcoal-gray, our exclusive kilim area rug has a striking mixed texture with raised shaggy stripes that feel amazing underfoot.
Avocado Green Mattress
Our natural hybrid latex mattress features GOLS organic certified latex, 100% GOTS organic certified wool, 100% GOTS organic certified cotton and up to 1,414 individually pocketed support coils arranged in 5 strategic zones. A GOTS organic certified product.
Buffy Eucalyptus Sheets
Wrap yourself in naturally soft, naturally-dyed sheets. Move over, cotton! Our cool-to-the-touch eucalyptus fabric is more breathable than cotton and softer than linen. You might be tempted to never take them off your bed, but our sheets are designed to get softer after every wash.
Buffy Cloud Pillow
Soft yet supportive—a pillow for every sleeper. Pick your firmness! Our standard-sized pillow comes in three fill levels to hug your head just the way you like it. Choose softer if you like some plush give, medium if you want something balanced, or firmer for extra support. Feel good fluff.
