Now that spring is officially here, it’s clear to us that Domino readers aren’t just excited for cherry blossoms and picnics in the park. From a nifty, battery-powered spin scrubber vetted by Elena Lohse of This House 5000 to a tiny patio-friendly table, nearly all of this month’s top buys are made for prepping your home for the warmer weather ahead. Although a few outliers did crop up, such as the TikTok-viral Amazon desk chair and the pup parent–approved chew toy you were loving in 2022. Curious about everything else that accumulated in your carts? Scroll on to see the full list.
The absolute biggest takeaway from March is that Domino readers love to dig through Montreal-based retailer Ssense for a good homeware deal as much as we do. Case in point: This glossy Henry Holland Studio side plate in a marbleized combo of blue and green that was specifically scooped up 40 times in just four days. And we can’t blame you, considering the exclusive clay colorway is (still!) 60% off. Layer it with other dishes on your tabletop or hang the hand-wash-only piece on your wall for an authentic cozy English kitchen look.
Nate Cotterman’s slanted serveware has been sporting a discount so good we also called it out in our weekly deals rundown—and how could we not, when it’s $134 less than its original asking price? The mouth-blown basin features an angled opening and a smoky tint that make it an edgy addition to a kitchen island or hallway console. And we’re happy to report that while we did warn that this markdown was a final sale, you listened when we said unique tableware that’s discounted this heavily is a rarity worth the risk. If you happened to be wary before of whether or not to grab this one-of-a-kind, Cleveland-made bowl, now’s your second chance: It’s still available and 79% off.
Finding a “just-right” pillow takes time and can be a deal breaker between restful sleep and nights full of tossing and turning. It appears there are plenty of others out there who agree with our associate shopping editor, Morgan Bulman, that plushness is key. While Bulman offers an in-depth look at everything she loves about this silk-filled offering, don’t just take her word for it—400-plus reviewers on Cozy Earth’s website have gushed over how much the price is worth it. Better yet, while the Sleep Week deal Bulman originally highlighted has ended, the brand is hosting another sitewide sale through April 4.
One of the early renditions of our weekly Cool Kids series highlighted Areaware’s chalk set. Since it’s small enough to fit in an Easter basket, it’s understandable that parents are stocking up on this find that will get children out of the house and into an intergalactic setting (the bright, nontoxic chalk, designed by Nikolas Bentel, was inspired by space travel). And we hope that those of you reading who scooped the set up have found that the unique, easy-to-grip shapes are already proving to make outdoor drawing more fun.
An old dog parent–approved buyer’s guide recently resurfaced via our shopping email newsletter, and this bobble toy (now only $15) once again took the top-bought spot. Our art director, Kim Gray, was the first one to discover the gem (she purchased it to keep her easily bored Boston terrier quiet throughout the workday), and we’ve since discovered this treat-dispensing puzzle is a favorite among many more pup owners—it’s amassed 1,500 positive reviews on Chewy. One buyer praised the smart design and noted the openings can be tweaked to make it more challenging as needed, and it holds “a decent amount of kibble.”
Pretend holiday or not, Sleep Week was a great excuse to refresh our linen closets. And of all the mattress, sheet set, and pillow sales we rounded up, readers coveted Coyuchi’s gingham duvet cover the most. The classic check pattern in a subdued, neutral taupe is easy to love: The bedding staple is made of 100% organic cotton in a factory that reuses 90% of its wastewater, and shoppers were impressed by its thick feel. Better yet, it’s still 40% off.
Domino readers were all in on H&M Home’s latest collaboration with South African artist Lulama Wolf and Los Angeles–based creative Amber Vittoria, which starred two statement rug designs. Wolf’s tufted beige creation, made with 100% wool, found its way into many carts. Compared to her canvas originals, which can cost $3,000-plus, this soft, textural version is a more palatable $449.
Unsurprisingly, we’ve seen a plethora of Internet-favorite mops, sponges, and other tools gain traction this month. But when we saw Lohse backing this affordable Amazon number, we had to investigate. Our findings? The Voweek cordless scrubber extends from 25 to 43 inches, so you don’t have to get down on hands and knees or stand precariously on the edge of a step stool to whiten your grout. It’s a cleaning lifesaver, and we’re thrilled you were just excited as we were about coming across this handy cleaning tool.
Air purifiers can be a bit of a necessary evil, as was the case for our head of brand and partnerships, Angela Tafoya. Wildfires are the norm for the Northern California resident. And as a new mom, her obsession with monitoring dust and toxins in her home has increased twofold. The problem is finding a device that strikes a balance between being efficient and looking chic. Enter Bloom. The nifty machine filters 1,517 square feet of air, capturing 99.97% of pollutants, and can masquerade as either a side table or planter. Plus it costs significantly less compared to other chic smart machines.
An oldie, but (clearly) still a goodie—this desk chair first came to fame on TikTok and has been purchased by Domino readers en masse ever since. We’re still confident the main reason is because the puffy, pillowy seat is a roomy 25.5 inches, so you can comfortably sit “crisscross applesauce.”
After finding this compact side table on sale at Amazon, we had to share it with readers who may also be in need of a versatile addition to their small outdoor space. The 16-inch tabletop has been proven to hold a drink, book, and little snack simultaneously, making it the perfect piece for a teeny terrace or barely there balcony. It also caught our eye for the four fun finishes it comes in (matte black, crisp white, fiery cherry red, and aquatic teal). Psst: The latter is still a whopping 58% off.
According to designer Hollie Velten, the best beanbag chairs signal that relaxing, laid-back vibes are ahead—and Serena & Lily’s Newport lounger doesn’t disappoint. The low-profile, structured silhouette is as sophisticated as it is comfortable. We’re guessing it caught Domino readers’ attention for that reason during the brand’s Spring Design event, where everything is 20% off (at least until today, March 28!).
For those living somewhere where winter weather is still a reality, we’re guessing you scooped up this knitting kit to pass the time. The box comes with everything needed to create six 6-by-6-inch cotton squares that are machine washable and long-lasting. And the fact that it’s made out of metal instead of plastic makes learning a lot less frustrating. “Our 8-year-old granddaughter wanted a potholder loom set. The colors are bright, and the holders are just as good as my 35-year-old ones,” one shopper writes.
Once all the dusting and vacuuming is done, the next natural step is to invite friends and family over to your home—that is if they have somewhere to sleep. Lulu and Georgia’s linen sleeper sofa is the ultimate respite for overnight guests. The compact three-seater may only be 73 inches wide, but it hides a queen-size mattress within its sloped silhouette that, as we noted in our buyer’s guide, is “firm but wonderful.”
The 1970s are back, meaning terrazzo isn’t going anywhere. Example A: You bought this retro table lamp in bunches—at a seriously steal-worthy price tag of just $34. For a fresh spin, consider swapping out the top. “It comes with a cute little shade but would look fantastic with a [mid-century modern] whipstitch shade!” writes one customer. “It has an understated style that works perfectly on a vintage table.”
