Our days are punctuated by scouting new talent, attending market appointments, and scrolling Instagram in an effort to unearth the products, people, and news you actually need to know. Here’s what we Slacked one another about this week.

Ode to Joy: BADG x Pottery Barn

Beyoncé’s Favorite Candle Brand Just Launched a Wallpaper Collection, and We’re Obsessed

Entertaining has always been a personal matter, but Pottery Barn’s new partnership with the Black Artists + Designers Guild (BADG) is giving hosting new meaning. The inspiration behind the collection is Black Joy, Black Family Lifestyle, and Black Celebration (the line spans more than 25 pieces, from barware to bedding, that draw on symbolic themes from the lives of artists Penny Francis, Casi St. Julian, and Lisa Turner). Among the conversation-sparking items: matching woven chargers and napkin holders. Lydia Geisel, associate home editor 

Sleep Mode: Snoozewear Collection by Casper 

Beyoncé’s Favorite Candle Brand Just Launched a Wallpaper Collection, and We’re Obsessed

With frequent frosty mornings this winter, coziness and warmth are my main priorities when getting dressed. Luckily the Snoozewear collection by Casper is about to make my transition from bed to home office a little smoother. I’m most excited for the Blanket Robe—puffy, duvet-like, and with pockets—which will help me take the comfort of my bed throughout my space and ease into the day. Cassandra McCook, associate social editor

Fired Up: MoMA x Raawii

Beyoncé’s Favorite Candle Brand Just Launched a Wallpaper Collection, and We’re Obsessed

Omar Sosa, creative director of Apartamento magazine, just made the chicest collection of earthenware with Copenhagen-based design brand Raawii, and now it’s available at MoMA Design Store. All of the nine colors are meant to work together, and the four shapes—shallow bowls, a vase, and a carafe—are stackable, which is good news for my crowded cabinets. I haven’t been this excited for something since solving Worlde in three tries. Julie Vadnal, deputy editor

To the Walls: Diptyque’s Wallpaper Collection

Beyoncé’s Favorite Candle Brand Just Launched a Wallpaper Collection, and We’re Obsessed

As a home editor, I come across beautiful wallpaper all the time, but it’s rare that I discover a pattern I could actually imagine living with—wall covering is a big decision and really needs to resonate. But when I heard that Diptyque, aka Beyoncé’s favorite candle brand, was launching a wallpaper collection, I had a feeling it would be chic. (Fun fact: The company got its start in fabric and wallpaper design.) And after once glance at the Impressionist watercolors and inky sketches, all derived from the founders’ original artwork, I think you’ll agree, too. Julia Stevens, associate style editor 

Wine and Dine: Clare V. x El Vino

Beyoncé’s Favorite Candle Brand Just Launched a Wallpaper Collection, and We’re Obsessed

The cofounders of women-led wine brand El Vino, who all met in the fashion industry, have been smartly collaborating with different artists and creatives on limited-edition products, and just last week they debuted their latest wine—a 2020 Tempranillo—in partnership with perennial Domino fave Clare V. Along with a fresh bottle label, you can pick up a tie-dyed sweatsuit, upcycled coasters, and a sorbet-hued scarf. I’ll take one of each, please.Samantha Weiss-Hills, deputy commerce editor
