    full length mirror with arch at top that's leaning against a wall and has a green outer frame

    I recently moved into a new apartment with windows in awkward areas, making my living room darker than it should be during the day. I got this so I could bounce some light from the windows to the other end of the room and it works perfectly! It was one of the first things I put up in my living room and I instantly started getting compliments on it (even though the room is *still* mostly full of unopened boxes).

    olive green sheets on loosely made bed

    Promising review: "These are, without a doubt, the most comfortable sheets I've ever slept on. They are really soft and will continue to soften as you wash and sleep on them, really breaking in after about five washes. After having slept on these sheets for a month, I can honestly say I will never go back to cotton again. If you are menopausal or run hot when you sleep, you will love these — they are so breathable and feel amazing, cool in the summer and warm when they need to be. I can't wait to go to bed at night and don't want to get up in the mornings, they are that wonderful. If this is your first experience with linen sheets, like mine, I would not hesitate to try them.

I’m so glad I went for this despite the price. It’s very sturdy and my cats love to lay on it (they fight for the top bed). When I have guests over, they like to hide inside the bottom cave.

Our nursery is small but this light easily lights up the entire space. My husband hung it in less than 15 minutes. I have received countless compliments on it. I recommend it!" —Amazon Customer

Great plant, I highly recommend!" —Nicole Tuznik

    Promising review: "I had my doubts but I thought, what the heck, for the price I'd give them a try. I am in real estate and known as a lighting snob. The first thing I look at in a kitchen is if there is under-cabinet lighting. These are so nice (it helps if you have a lip at the bottom of your cabinets). They are a true white, very bright, and I was lucky they were just the length I needed. I just ordered a set and had them shipped to my mom's as her halogen transformer, which is buried in a wall, fried, and it drives me nuts that the workspace on the counter is dark. I can't wait until I make the 250-mile drive to install them. I may buy more just to use at our listings!" —pauly

    Promising review: "It is really beautiful, I'd like it even if I didn't have a cat! LOL. There is a plastic double decker one like this but my Norwegian forest cat can knock it over and destroy it. This one has multiple balls. It is solid wood, very durable, and very stable. I love this! If they ever make one even bigger I'd buy it in a heartbeat. This size would even work for kittens." —Anna Aryeh

    38. An abstract rug is gonna bring some character into your minimalist space — attracting lots of attention without taking away from the simplicity you love.

    geometric rug in bright colors

    Promising review: "This is my third Safavieh rug I've purchased online. All three are beautiful. The sculpted wool is really elegant. Different people's monitors show color differently, but on my monitor the depicted colors were exactly what the real rug looks like. I worried that the pictured greenish bits would not in fact be greenish, but they were, and so the rug matches my office perfectly. I know people complain about shedding. But really, that's just what wool rugs do for a very long time and then they settle down. And if you use the beater brush on your vacuum cleaner (as I do) you will at first have a vacuum full of fuzz. But don't worry, your rug is and will be fine. I don't rave about products generally, but I will rave about Safaveih wool rugs. You get an enormous bang for your buck in terms of style, elegance, and quality. They hold up to cat scratching and puking (as cats do) and just continue to look lovely." —Cheshire Calhoun

    embroidered pattern in white bedding

    This includes a quilt and two pillow shams. 

    Promising review: "This quilt is amazing! It looks exactly like the pictures and it is much better quality than I expected for this price. I have a cat and it has yet to snag or pill from her claws which is an issue I usually have with quilts or comforters. The white color is a clean, bright white. The pattern makes it more elegant and interesting than just a plain-colored quilt. I am so pleased with this purchase!" —Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in two sizes and 14 colors).
