Effortless Composition Home Decor

This home decor store has everything you need for just about every room in the house. You can shop by category, or browse the site’s curated sections (this roundup of office accessories will up your work-from-home game). We also love its range of vessels, statues, and textiles, like this shibori-style cotton throw.

The Jungalow

We are long time fans of The Jungalow founder Justina Blakeney—the queen of boheme shares her eclectic eye with us on her colorful, lush e-commerce site, which offers bohemian-modern home decor. Justina’s art prints are some of our favorites. They add instant, effervescent cheer to any space at a fabulous price point.

LooHoo

LooHoo founder and CEO Cyndi Prince wanted to reduce toxic chemicals in her family’s household, so she created pretty, reusable wool dryer balls that could honestly double as objets d’art. These energy-saving alternatives to dryer sheets are made in Maine using 100 percent domestic wool. Cyndi sources wool from a historic mill less than 100 miles from her headquarters in Camden, Maine. Using the LooHoo wool dryer balls leave clothes smelling fresh without any chemicals and can reduce dry time by 10 to 25 percent.

Estelle Colored Glass

Estelle Colored Glass offers hand-blown colored glass cake stands and stemware in the most gorgeous colors. A hand-blown cake stand from this luxury brand would make for the ultimate hostess gift, while a mix-and-match set of stemware creates a charming, rainbow effect. Based in South Carolina, founder Stephanie Summerson Hall started the company as an homage to her grandmother, Estelle, who loved to go antiquing.

Clare

Nicole Gibbons has an impressive resume—television personality, interior designer, Emmy winner. She added “entrepreneur” to the list in 2018, launching Clare, an intuitive paint company that helps users find their perfect color using complex algorithms.

Perry Boyce

Visual artist Tracey Boyce started her home fragrance company, Perry Boyce, after spending $60 on a candle that didn’t impart much fragrance. Her company focuses on luxe yet affordable home scents, including candles and room sprays. Everything is handmade using an all-natural blend of essential oils. Check out the Concrete + Jungle scent—a fitting ode to the company’s Brooklyn roots.

Duett Interiors

Tiffany Thompson brings the coolest aesthetic to Duett Interiors. No surprise: her background includes nearly a decade at Nike, where she executed creative projects and designs. Her cheeky pillows use gorgeous fabrics in eye-catching prints and colors (the La Paz colorway is our favorite). Then, she covers them in PVC recycled plastic. It’s grandmillennial style in the best way.

UNWRP

UNWRP brings personality and sustainability to gift giving, be it prints, stickers, pillows, bandanas and even the giftwrap itself. There are so many patterns to love, but we’re feeling the summery color scheme and subject matter of the Glasses style, from artist Taylor McManus.

Mommy Wipes

These individually packaged, on-the-go cleaning wipes were created by a mom who felt her clothes couldn’t stay clean for longer than two minutes. Can any moms out there relate? Unlike other stain removal products, Mommy Wipes don’t have harsh chemicals, dyes, perfumes, bleach or parabens and can be used to remove makeup, spit-up, juice and other stains from clothing, shoes and fabrics. You can also use them to remove stubborn stains from upholstered furniture.

Brown and Coconut

We’ve mostly covered home decor companies, but we’re rounding out the list with a self-care moment. Founded by sisters Letisha and Zeena Brown, Brown and Coconut offers plant-based, small-batch, cruelty-free, vegan skin-care products made without GMOs, artificial colors and fragrances, parabens or sulfates. The healing kale mask is an absolute treat for skin, featuring French green clay, lemon verbena, neem, thyme, honeysuckle, vitamin A and (of course) kale.
