In Our Carts is a monthly series in which I round up my and other editors’ favorite new product launches. They’re taken straight from our #editors-picks Slack channel, where our team drops the many press releases that fill our in-boxes. I sort through them for the best of the best. That way, you can read just about the good stuff—nothing more and nothing less.
It’s easy to forget that IKEA has been around for 80 years, until you take a look at the Swedish brand’s chic vintage lamp selection on Etsy. With its reissued Tuvkornell taper holders, an ’80s design, you don’t have to resort to secondhand to bring that nostalgic charm home. They’re offered in new colorways, either a trio of green, blue, and lilac, or bright orange, that make the simple form feel extra-playful.
Calling all Dry January participants: There’s a new zero-proof beverage on the market. Ghia’s latest flavor, Berry, is “bold, juicy, and tantalizingly tart.” Like any aperitif, pair it with seltzer or sip over ice—except this time, it will be followed by a hangover-free morning.
Clare V. knows how to nail a graphic tee, so it’s no surprise her lighthearted typography translated so seamlessly in her Framebridge collaboration: a series of six poppy prints. Rather than just going to Framebridge for the frame, you can let the company take care of the whole shebang, art and all. We could see them fitting into a maximal gallery wall as easily as standing alone.
Julie Vadnal, Domino’s deputy editor, was lucky enough to test the Rocco Fridge, and our team is more than a little jealous. Cracking open a cold one just hits different when you’re pulling it out of its own designated cooler with a banana yellow finish and ribbed glass door. We’re itching to see what’s next from this new brand.
While Vacation’s old-school branding always hits home, we’d love the product line even if it was in drugstore packaging. The new Chardonnay Lip Oil, made from grape-seed oil and armed with SPF 30, is no exception. If you’re lucky enough to be going on a beach vacation this Christmas, you should probably stash one of these in your carry-on.
It’s party season, and Our Place is getting in on the fun with new multicolored stemware. As described on the site, their form is “playfully squatty,” making them as far from stuffy special-occasion glassware as possible. The vessels are perfect for enjoying an ice-cold Kin, plus you’ll receive a discount code of up to 30% off to use at the nonalcoholic drinks brand if you purchase the exclusive colorway.
If there’s anything we’re thinking about during the short, chilled days of winter, it’s sitting on the beach in the Caribbean. And Gohar World’s shell-filled collaboration with Grand Cayman It hotel Palm Heights is just what we’re craving. The collection, including a swan-shaped spoon, fish-shaped lemon squeezer, and bean-shaped dish, is sprinkled with humor and whimsy.
