In honor of the Veep’s move into her official residence this week, we humbly put forth our top furniture and accessories choices for her home office. Here’s what we know about her taste from her fashion choices: She likes to stick with monochromatic colors, she loves a tailored look, and she prioritizes comfort (we love that she chicly pairs Converse sneakers with a suit!). When it comes to furniture, we propose sophisticated yet functional pieces, only sourcing from the best for our first female vice president, and, coincidentally, more than half of our recommendations were designed by women.
The days of physically traipsing through staged showrooms to pick out preassembled home pieces that you then wait weeks or even months to be delivered have been replaced by fast and affordable virtual convenience. Amazon hasn't just transformed the ease with which we're able to shop everything from beauty to tech and wellness essentials at the push of an add-to-cart button, the mega-retailer has also created an online furniture warehouse with extensively reviewed stock running the gamut of styles and price points.Unlike your organized weekend excursions to Ikea or Target, Amazon's online aisles can feel a little more uncharted. So, to help you navigate the best buys for your bucks, we weeded through the Wild Product West and pulled out the savviest small-space solutions worth buying. Whether it's a loveseat from a vetted Amazon-exclusive brand, a funkier but still top-rated storage piece, or a compact utility-style table for your nearly nonexistent dining room, the goods ahead are ready to be shopped, boxed, and shipped to your doorstep.At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff—and, while we do receive commission from Amazon, all of the goods linked to on our site are independently selected and supported by our Shopping team editorsSerta Leighton Home Office ChairIf you need to see more on why this chair is so essential, opt for our total review.

Spring is finally here, and after a long winter (and, let’s face it, a long calendar year), we’re looking forward to spending lots of time outside in the sun with our friends and family once the weather gets warmer. But we need a cozy and comfortable space to do it. After all, even the most […]

What happens when 20 top designers join forces to decorate a single house? Well, that's the setup for this year's Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach, the fourth iteration of the Florida version of one of the design world's most famous show houses. This year, twenty designers from across the country descended on a 4,400-square-foot Mediterranean-style villa, and completely transformed it in under three months. This week, it opened for public tours, with all proceeds benefitting the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club in New York and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. Not only did this year's designers manage to pull together a comprehensive renovation under COVID-19 restrictions, they created a house full of decorating inspiration and valuable ideas.
I was recently in an Amazon hole looking for lightbulbs — a worthy Amazon-specific purchase if you’re super picky on bulb types and refuse to once again be lost and alone in a 12-foot-high aisle at the hardware store — when I digitally veered left into things I didn’t really need and ended up perusing blankets. Somewhere in my subconscious, there was an organic cotton bedding seed planted and its promise of cozy textile goodness was blooming on the tip of my brain. It was also following me around Instagram and TikTok where images featuring beds made with mille-feuille cake-inspired layers of sheets and duvets were being served up by the bevy. I’m not sure at what point I said “I’d love to be swaddled in an adult baby blanket” loud enough for the ad-targeting demon in my iPhone to hear me, but like Virgil leading me through the nine rings of Amazon hell, I was ultimately guided down to adult baby blanket Paradiso. View this post on Instagram A post shared by G i n i (@interiorbygini) The Instagram image above can probably be traced back to what first triggered my adult baby blanket itch. (I have a burner IG handle that I use for following home inspo accounts, interior designers, furniture, and decor brands — it’s my safe space on the app.) This image was originally posted by @interiorbygini, a Vienna-based ‘Grammer of ethereal home aesthetics. Or, at least, I think she was the first; it’s been reposted so many times by other accounts, that it’s a constant in my feed. Look at that bedding! The warm light has just slipped away from the bed’s sea of sumptuous cotton muslin, making it the most ideal place on Earth for what was previously referred to as a lazy disco nap. I envisioned myself descending beneath those layers of luxury for a moment of soft reflection — or, if choosing not to muss up the entire masterpiece, simply sliding under its airy top layer. Two weeks later, after thinking about this idyllic scene at least once a day, it happened, I ended up on Amazon typing in the keywords “organic cotton waffle”, “soft muslin blanket”, and “layered organic crinkle gauze blanket” to get the right results. And, judging by all the positive reviews, I wasn’t the only person who came to the conclusion that an adult baby blanket was one of life’s more desirable unspoken luxuries. I felt a special kinship with one reviewer who stated, “I’m a 30-year-old grown-ass woman who is always jealous of my nieces’ and nephews’ muslin blankets because of how insanely cozy they are. I’m so happy I found one big enough for me to snuggle up with.” I’m a 30-year-old grown-ass woman who is always jealous of my nieces’ and nephews’ muslin blankets because of how insanely cozy they are. I’m so happy I found one big enough for me to snuggle up with. Amazon Reviewer Now that I own this Bedsure 50% cotton and 50% bamboo style, it’s something I’d describe as a waffled adult baby blanket you can swaddle yourself up in for self-soothing bliss. The secret about baby blankie Amazon is that it’s a pretty wholesome corner of the behemoth site that many of us loath. While those lightbulbs are a one-and-done click to buy, the gauzy dream blanket scene is filled with sellers who have keys to some of the best textile mills east of Italy, family bedding businesses that do one thing really well, and a slew of other random options — all with near 5-star ratings. The paradox of choice hits hard when you’re virtually surrounded by too much of a good thing. EMME 100% Cotton Muslin 6-Layer Throw Blanket, $39.89 Although I’m extremely satisfied with my purchase, I’m not 100% sure I landed on the exact one that fulfills the aforementioned Instagram vision (seeking a little less waffle, a little more mille-feuille cake). And here’s where I type an on-record statement that I will not buy another adult baby blanket for myself. Not because I don’t want layers of organic cotton gauze swathed across every bed and couch and perhaps they can even serve as a picnic blanket or a tablecloth or a lovely backdrop to a fruit bowl and bouquet of flowers as to which I can sit with an easel and palette and marvel at the still life before me; but because I can see myself becoming a hoarder of cloud-like covers. It’s 2021 and I’m not here to consume more than I can snoo. However — with a capital H because it’s at the beginning of the sentence and also because I want to stress that despite my good intentions — I will probably accumulate a few more when I finally have guests over again. After all, I wouldn’t want to keep the joy that is sweatless slumber-filled nights or oh-so-soft and cool naptimes all to myself. UniDes 4-Layer 100% Muslin Cotton Blanket, $55.99 Ordered this drunk one night. By far the best surprise package I’ve ever received!!! Soft, cozy. Lightweight but still warm—how is that? It’s magic.
