    1. A made-to-order ceramic soap dish with an ingenious drainage spout so excess water trickles out directly into your sink (instead of all over the counter).


    Promising review: "I love this soap dish! I bought some handmade soap at a farmer's market and wanted a soap dish for it. This one caught my eye because of the sensible drain, the minimalist design, and the matte black glaze." —Linda BInder

    Get it from Kim Hau Ceramics on Etsy for $30 (available in four colors).

    2. A fire escape shelving unit for a perfect homage to New York living while you display your succulents.

    8. A lamp that'll cleverly use your outlet as an anchor — cutting out the use of fussy and chaotic cords.

    Human Home

    Get it from Human Home for $285 (available in black and white).

    9. A pack of reusable silicone straws for an eco-friendly and (much more attractive, tbh) alternative to your average plastic straw.

    13. A modern stainless-steel watering can that you'll probably just want to leave out on a shelf and stare at all day.


    Get it from Food52 for $54 (available in three colors).

    14. A console/bench for completely concealing your litter box so as not to draw unnecessary attention (the odor usually does a decent enough job of that).
