This week, the theme of our sales update is black-and-white. We aren’t entirely sure how this happened, but maybe we were subconsciously influenced by our recent piece on 12 Minimalist Kitchen Items For People Who Hate Colorful Decor. Whatever the reason, there are a lot of good discounts to check out right now (particularly in the decor department), including a nice ceramic vase, a versatile wall mirror, and some sustainably produced napkins that have significantly more style than a roll of paper towels.
We’re recommending these products because we actually use, and like, them. Things you buy through our links may earn us a commission.
Tykho 3 AM/FM Radio & Bluetooth Speaker
Maybe you already have a Bluetooth speaker. But do you have one in your kitchen? Or in your dining room? Or near your shower for when you want to sing that Olivia Rodrigo song for which Hayley Williams of Paramore now has a writing credit? This speaker is attractive and water-resistant, and it’s somehow only $20. Grab it before Nordstrom’s Summer Sale ends on September 12th.
Ménage à Quatre Set of 4 Conductor Stripe Reclaimed Napkins
If you’re looking for new cloth napkins, Atelier Saucier is a wonderful place to start. Their linens are made in Los Angeles from reclaimed fabrics — and, without exception, they’re all pretty stylish. These ones have a classic railroad-conductor-adjacent motif that should work with any dining setup.
Stevie Glass Watering Can
So many of our plants are dying. Don’t be like us. Get yourself a nice watering vessel to provide some extra plant-maintenance motivation.
Your vases should look just as good empty as they do full of various plants and flowers. With that in mind, here’s a ceramic one with a textured matte-black finish and some loops for added personality.
Oversized Hub Mirror
It’s only $10 off, but still, this mirror probably shouldn’t be on sale in the first place. (Basic round white mirrors aren’t exactly going out of style.) There’s almost definitely a wall in your home that would benefit from this 37-inch, rubber-coated object, so just grab one now, then figure out where to put it.
Ellis Iron Ladder
Are your closets overflowing? And have your friends and houseguests taken notice? Turn your reckless abundance of clothing and linens into a quirky personality trait with this white iron ladder.
Historically, we’ve recommended dupes of the currently trendy Hans Wegner Wishbone chair (because dupes are cheaper). But Design Within Reach is having their Semi Annual Sale right now, so you can pick up the real deal at a 15% discount.
Componibili Storage Unit
Another piece of furniture that’s quickly approaching hey-I-just-saw-that-on-Instagram status, the Kartell Componibili Storage Unit is also currently 15% off. Get one, and throw it in any room of your house that could use a small table, some extra storage, or an object for your guests to fixate on.
Serax X Ann Demeulemeester Porcelain Dishes
You can eat anything out of a bowl (pasta, for example). Bowls also great for serving, especially when they’re collaborations between Serax and Ann Demeulemeester. In other words, get these glossy, chiaroscuro-influenced bowls while they’re still 30% off. (Editorial Director Diana Tsui is also a fan of the Serax X Demeulemeester wine glasses.)
AeroPress Coffee And Espresso Maker
According to Editor in Chief Hillary Reinsberg, the AeroPress is the best way to make a single cup of coffee. All you need is some ground coffee, two minutes, and this on-sale gadget.
Cristel Asparagus Pot With Lid
Asparagus pots are such weirdly specific things. But we’re glad that they exist. They make life more interesting. Plus, you can use this stainless steel pot for steaming assorted vegetables and deep-frying things other than asparagus.
De'Longhi Dedica DeLuxe with Premium Adjustable Frothing Wand
Need something a little more robust than an AeroPress? Here’s a slim De’Longhi espresso machine that’ll provide you quality americanos while taking up minimal counter space. (Right now, you can also get an additional 10% off with the code SAVE.)
Verishop x Hawkins NY Barware Bundle
There’s something missing from your bar cart, and it’s this barware set from Verishop and Hawkins NY. The next time you make a cocktail for a friend (or tell them to make their own drink), you’ll be glad that you have these linen napkins, marble coasters, and glass straws on hand.
