Ask any loyal Muji customer why they shop at the Japanese retailer, and you’ll find they’ll struggle to narrow their obsession down to one reason. With a wide scope of streamlined household essentials—fashion, fragrances, and snacks included—Muji is a shoppable paradise for avid organizers, sworn minimalists, and tidy homebodies alike.

Despite differences, passionate Muji shoppers are united by their search for a simpler way of living. While this far-flung pursuit might seem unattainable, we’ve found the cheat sheet to get you there: the best sellers.

You can learn a lot about a company by the products it offers that constantly sell out. For Muji, one of those always-off-the-shelf items is the Body Fit Cushion: a strictly comfy yet unexpectedly fashionable seating choice that can also be used as a lounger, headrest, and makeshift bed. Similar to classic renditions of the childhood-favorite beanbag chair, this body-hugging cushion boasts a low-profile silhouette and microbead filling. Suffice it to say that it’s certainly sink-worthy.

“You can easily waste a whole afternoon lying into this cushion,” one reviewer wrote. “I love putting it beside the windows and enjoy the sunlight.” Another fan notes in the comment section that the Body Fit Cushion is the perfect squeeze for a small living room. 

Anyone who is intimately familiar with this cozy floor chair will have noticed that it hasn’t been available for purchase over the past few weeks. We’re delighted to reveal that the wait is finally over: The fan-favorite cushion is officially back in stock. The cushion itself retails for $120. Fabric covers are currently marked down to $32.

But don’t check out just yet: We recently tapped Muji for a list of its top-selling home essentials. Trust us: You’ll want to add these cherished items to your cart.

If you’ve ever stepped foot in a Muji store, you’ve probably experienced the soothing scent that its aroma diffuser emanates. The sleek and decidedly minimalist pick lets you purify the air in your home without compromising on style.

Muji’s gel pens feature an ink-prevention mechanism that stops ink from flowing in the wrong direction and causing unforeseen leakage or breaks in your writing. Jotting a note on the fly is finally enjoyable.

In true Muji form, the brand’s best-selling travel essential comes in the form of streamlined carry-on baggage. The Hard Carry Suitcase comes with adjustable wheels that can change from single to double layer in order to reduce noise as it rolls along the ground. Bonus? You can fit a lot in it. One reviewer revealed that she was able to squeeze a yoga mat in the suitcase after she had packed it tight.

Who said anything about leaving your favorite scents at home? This travel-size diffuser is made to follow you along wherever you go—be it the office or on vacation. Its clever design allows it to function without water. All you need are a few drops of oil and voila: fresh air!

Meet the ultimate note-taking buddy. Users who love this office-approved product revere it for its compact size, paper quality, and flexible binding. You’re going to want to write this paper pick down.
