Welcome to In Our Carts, a monthly series in which I’ll be rounding 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.
We recently spotted a small selection of seating from iconic Danish brand FDB Mobler newly available on Schoolhouse. Established in 1942 with Børge Mogensen as the design studio manager, it’s one of the most respected heritage labels in Denmark. But some of the designs are even older than the company. Take Jorgen Baekmark’s J80 chair, designed in 1919, for example. Its clean lines and meticulous handwoven seat will somehow always be in style.
Holiday-themed candles are hit or miss, but our entire team is crushing on Diptyque’s limited-edition Valentine’s Day duo. Available in the brand’s crowd-pleasing Baies and Roses scents, the sweet heart graphic would look perfect on a nightstand.
A day that Nordic Knots drops a new collection is always a very exciting day. Its Park Collection celebrates stripes both wide and narrow, in five new shades from deep burgundy to sky blue. They give off a corduroy-like effect with a mix of woven loops and hand-cut piles, creating a subtle pattern that still allows your furniture to pop.
We’ve always adored Carolina Irving & Daughters’ sweet tablewares, and its new collaboration with interior designer Remy Renzullo delivers even more dinner plates, bowls, and serving platters to ogle. The collection takes inspiration from 18th and 19th ceramics, except they’re dishwasher safe and don’t feel overly precious. For the next three months, you can shop the trunk show exclusively at Moda Operandi.
Rimowa’s newest shade is inspired by the sea, and the cornflower blue is just as vibrant as it is calming. It’s offered in three trunk sizes and various toiletry and packing cube cases. The best part? You’ll always know which suitcase is yours at baggage claim.
The beloved Beast just released a mini-size blender, ideal for single-serving smoothies, salad dressings, and sauces. The regular size starts at $165, but the mini is just $99. Not many blenders come in five colorways, but with Beast, you can choose from dusty blue, warm terracotta, and more; it’s made to look good on your counter. Because of its slimmer size, the blender itself makes for a great smoothie vessel—just add on the straw-cap system and you’re set.
We’re mesmerized by this granite mortar and pestle, perfectly nestled by an architectural ash-wood base—it’s from new Seattle-based kitchenware brand Holcomb. The base actually allows you to pivot the mortar, adding a little more leverage to your grind. On top of that, it has slip-proof feet so it won’t slide around.
Possibly the most satisfying lotion dispenser of all time, Soft Services’s new refillable glass case is designed to live on your nightstand. Packaging aside, it “gloves hands in a soft, waxy layer of nourishing ingredients overnight, for those just-manicured results each morning,” according to the brand. At $62, it makes a lovely gift.
Calling all renovators: RBW just unveiled the maritime-inspired Cape design, and we’re digging the nautical energy. Created in collaboration with Little Wing Lee of Studio & Projects, it’s offered in both a sconce and flush mount.
