May: the month when everyone who doesn’t live in a temperate climate remembers that they need to replace their patio furniture, or pick up a new set of string lights for the deck, or outfit their plants with new digs. Domino readers were on the case, scooping up beach bags, outdoor umbrellas, and decor for their performance fabric–clad sectionals. Thankfully, there were hundreds of sales happening and big one-off events at Target, Wayfair, and Ssense. Mother’s Day landed smack in the middle of the month, of course, and if you needed a last-minute gift, our flower delivery services guide served you well. Here’s everything you were buying in May, from chic budget-friendly rugs to solar-powered garden lanterns.

Titanium Always Pan Pro, Our Place ($195)

When Our Place releases a new kitchen product, we always want to know what special twist they’re bringing to the table. With the Titanium Always Pan Pro, it’s several: a no-coating nonstick cooking surface, titanium construction, and shiny finish. All of this? You loved it, too.

Farmgirl Flowers Bouquet

Wayfair’s annual Way Day sale happened in April, but its deals kept on coming in May. This 108-inch umbrella is under $200 and decorated with sweet scallops—and it comes in 10 different colors. You were partial to the baby blue with a white contrasting edge.

If you haven’t poked around the lighting selection at H&M Home, you should hop to it. Other Domino readers did when they saw that we covered this metal pendant lamp with a felted cord and frosted glass globe.

Your Target Top Buys in May

The Studio McGee collection at Target is a perennial Domino editor and reader favorite, packed with laid-back and lovely gems. At this time of year, you’ve been all about the outdoor decor, and we can’t blame you.

Your Amazon Top Buys in May

Your go-to purchases on Amazon ranged from outdoor staples like solar lanterns and actually cute fly fans to Domino editor–favorite self-care essentials. A sweet under-$75 side table made it into the mix, and interior designer Lauren Liess’s beachy lookbook was in your carts.
