Looking to add a bit of California to your life without the plane ticket? Exir, the beloved Santa Monica home decor company, may be the answer: The store just launched an online shop, so you can now start adding that signature breezy West Coast style to your home from the comfort of your couch—even if that couch happens to be located in a tiny, windowless New York City rental apartment.

While Exir describes itself as a globally inspired shop (and several of the items are indeed produced around the world), the prevalence of natural textures and reliance on simple yet simultaneously effortless chic designs is definitely reminiscent of California. Though the website might not have all of the offerings you would find in Exir’s brick and mortar location, it provides a curated selection of some of its best.

Smaller pieces range from a set of five white vases designed to resemble pomegranates to decorative teak bowls that are both natural and organic to even lava rock potpourri from perfume house Mad et Len.

Outfit your kitchen with natural-looking pieces such as a ceramic utensil holder and a wooden salt & pepper “cellar” (because regular salt and pepper shakers are not very California cool).


Exir also has a gorgeous collection of textiles. Handwoven beach blankets from Ethiopia are perfect for any winter escapes you may be plotting—not to mention, they’re so much chicer than standard cotton beach blankets—and washed linen towels are richly-colored and ideal for jazzing up a plain kitchen.  


Some of the items are pricier than others, meaning that while this may not be an affordable homeware solution for everyone it’s great for upcoming holiday gifting. And for anyone on your list who’s a fan of Cali style, Exir has you covered with all the organic materials they’ll ever need.
