For the first time in a while, slashed price tags in the form of seasonal discounts didn’t dominate the month’s list of bestsellers. Instead Domino readers opted for celebrity-backed hidden gems and hacks like an arched floor lamp and full-length mirror (both sourced from a Real Housewives of New York star’s West Village apartment), as well as Drew Barrymore’s reader-favorite swivel chair getting a cool color update. To see what else caught your eye over the course of August, scroll on.
Ever since Drew Barrymore dropped her first furniture collection with Walmart back in April, her affordable swivel lounger has continued to be a reader-favorite product; its bestseller reputation fluctuates with its in-and-out-of-stock status. But at the tail-end of July, the cozy chair returned in a trendy new colorway: sage green. You were all for the earthy update, making it the most bought product in all of August. Good looks aren’t the only reason it’s flying off the shelf. Its oversize silhouette is able to comfortably sit two, and it won’t set you back more than $300.
Last month, fish motifs proved irresistible to Domino readers, particularly in the form of hand-painted dinnerware. This three-piece set, made from clay and glazes sourced from southern Italy (yet still dishwasher-safe!), was the most tempting of them all. Much like the tomato girl summer trend, we’re expecting to see this coastal-inspired decor stick around through the fall.
Who knew we were all missing out on laundry advice from actor and style icon Tracee Ellis Ross? Shortly after posting an Instagram Reel running fans through the hand-washing technique she uses to maintain her luxe closet items, namely a 100% linen Prada dress, readers were sold on her detergent recommendation: Calm’s Lavender and Rose Linen Wash. All you need is a “teeny little bit” from the 16-ounce bottle if you want your delicates to go a long way.
The blue and white swirls created by 1882, an English ceramics brand run by a family of fifth-generation artisans, was the eye-catching deal during Ssense’s home sale last month, when statement tableware was up to 62% off. Unsurprisingly, after being knocked down to $35, this Faye Toogood original is now sold out. There is, however, a pair of fine bone china plates with an emerald rim still up for grabs (our idea of the next best thing), but if you want the experimental creamware in the same rich pigmentation and don’t mind paying full price, all you have to do is head over to Abask.
Clearly, many of you continue to prep your patio. There’s still plenty of good weather in which to enjoy alfresco dinners and happy hours, and your love for H&M’s indoor- and outdoor-friendly small side table—from the brand’s first furniture drop in the U.S.—is proof. While your preferred pick in mint is no longer in stock, we’re just as into the four other powder-coated finishes available (light gray, black, dark red, and orange).
After scrolling through Brynn Whitfield’s rental in Manhattan’s West Village, we discovered the Bravo star is just like us—as in, always up for digging through Amazon for a hidden gem. Case in point: We found two under-$200 finds mingling amid her living room and bedroom decor that you’d never guess came from the online retailer: a brass-framed full-length mirror and massive arched floor lamp.
You can now get the same handheld steamer Andy Cohen’s mom used to de-wrinkle John Mayer’s button-down on sale. It also happens to be one of our favorites overall as far as bang for your buck goes with this gadget. We love that it offers five settings, from delicates to supercharged, that all heat up in under a minute. Another impressive feature is the continuous steam setting—up to 15 minutes’ worth—that doesn’t require you to hold the button down the entire time.

Another Opalhouse x Jungalow creation earns a spot on our monthly list of bestsellers. Dressed head to toe in yellow, this ceramic lamp delivers a true pop of color with its matching linen shade and glossy base. We’re guessing readers also appreciated the 5-foot-long cord and the fact that this piece ships with a LED lightbulb.
After recirculating New York–based creative Madeline Scalzi’s blue cabinet DIY as a part of our No-Reno Kitchen series, we’re guessing the very sheets of contact paper she used ended up becoming someone else’s top choice for redoing their own space. Reviewers on Amazon are also big fans of the brand, impressed by its adhesion and ease of use; they’ve successfully used it to cover up walls, bathroom vanities, bookshelves, and even appliances.
As our style editor, Julia Stevens, has so aptly put it in the past, CB2’s Marta glasses are the only ones you need. Incredibly low price tag aside—only $1.56 a pop, or $9 for a full set of six—the paper-thin yet durable construction and tapered silhouette make them an instant classic. If you didn’t grab them during CB2’s end-of-season promotion, no worries, you can still save a chunk of change on them now. Though we’d opt for the smaller tasting glasses over the old-fashioned style, as the latter is so popular it’s on back order through November.
This cheeky lamp, a realistic homage to the juicy fruit furnished from glass, was one of 50-plus new products to drop last week. It ended up in Domino readers’ carts more than anything else, and we can’t blame you. It’s the very kind of conversation starter we can get behind.
Honestly, we’re shocked you can still get these bamboo and rattan nesting tables over at Chairish, though less surprised that only two sets are left. Domino readers have bought nearly half a dozen since the Labor Day sale started, and we’re happy to report they’re still 20% off, now just $476. Or feel free to peruse other offerings, as there are 73 similar styles up for grabs, too.
From brass knobs to classic chrome pulls, we recently rounded up our favorite hardware for refreshing cabinets. We’re guessing there was just one shopper out there who needed to outfit their entire kitchen, landing on this unlacquered style from Amazon. The single review paints a pretty picture; in addition to the quality being better than expected, they also write, “Heavy in weight so it will withstand a lot of opening and closing. I wished I could find a drawer pull with the same quality. Costumer service was very prompt.”
