Non-Dorky Racing Specs: Article One x Ciele GTGlass 2.0 Sunglasses

Article One makes some seriously impressive eyewear, especially those designed for sweaty workouts. Hell, Ryan Gosling loves the brand so much he wears their slick shades on red carpets. It’s re-partnered with running brand Ciele on a new pair of aviator-style running shades that block 100% of UVA/UVB rays and stay put no matter how much perspiration is dripping down your face.

The Teflon Don of Cookware: Our Place Titanium Always Pan Pro

Over the years, Our Place has given its Always Pan a number of makeovers. It made it small; it made it super-sized; it made it out of cast iron. Now it’s made of titanium. The Always Pan Pro remains nonstick like the original cookware that made the brand famous, except it’s coating-free and made without PFAs, or those icky chemicals you really don’t want to leech into your food. The titanium surface is super hard, and it’s even able to withstand temperatures up to 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Sure, maybe you’re just reheating some cold pizza every now and again, but this remix of the Always Pan can still do all the things you know and love about the OG.

The Countertop Barista: Fellow Aiden Precision Coffee Maker


Aiden Precision Coffee Maker

Having already released its take on the pour-over dripper and French press, Fellow’s entry point into the drip coffee maker arena feels long overdue. Then you learn just what goes on with the Aiden Precision coffee maker, and you realize, sure, maybe the brand did need to take a minute to figure all this out. Drip coffee isn’t always the best, but Fellow claims that Aiden brews pour-over-style coffee with just the push of a button. How? By getting super specific with the water temperature and coffee-to-water ratio and integrating a bloom cycle, the new brewer seems ready to take prime real estate on your counter. You can even use your phone to control the thing and have coffee going before you’ve hit snooze on your alarm for the fifth time.

For the Busy Bee With a Soft Side: Branch Softside Chair

Instead of running around making individual cocktails at your summer parties, go ahead and grab a little case of Aperol’s pre-bottled spritzes. They now come in sets of four, and they’re mixed perfectly so that you don’t have to worry about screwing up that prosecco-to-Aperol ratio.

Old School Designs Get a Paint Job: Herman Miller Archives

Herman Miller

Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair

When it comes to the Eamses, you know what you’re getting: well-designed mid-century modern grails. But decades after their initial designs have graced countless homes, what else is there to do to freshen things up than giving things a fresh coat of paint? Herman Miller took its Hang-It-All coat rack and livened it up with splashes of blue and red, inspired by newly discovered sketches by Ray Eames. Additionally, the Molded Plywood Lounge Chair with Wood Base is now available in ochre, which was originally seen in a 1946 Eames exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art.

Lightweight Cordura Training Shirt

The Clean Sweep (and Mop): iRobot Roomba Combo Essential


Roomba Combo Essential Robot Vacuum and Mop

At this point, you know all about iRobot and its legion of Roomba robot vacuums (and Braava robot mops).

Avocado is known for its ethically made bedding, and it’s applied that same standard of sourcing and manufacturing to the new down collection. The first piece of the collection is a duvet insert that’s available in a lightweight, year-round option, depending on how badly you overheat at night. There’s also a new pillow, available in three levels of support, that’ll cradle that precious head of yours to sleep like you’re lying on a fluffy (but supportive!) marshmallow.


The Smart, Spacious Kettle: Fellow Clyde

Fellow’s synonymous with its coffee snob-approved gooseneck kettles, but for people who care more about volume and speed than precision, there’s a new addition to the family. Named Clyde, it’s an electric model combining a traditional shape with smart, temperature-setting technology that should come in clutch the next time you’re boiling a giant vat of pasta water.

The Tabletop Turbine: Windmill Fan

Windmill emerged onto the scene a few years ago with an actually stylish, double-insulated air conditioner to trump the clunky accordion styles you haul out every summer. Its newest launch gives the humble fan the same aesthetic treatment, promising better airflow and better looks than traditional tabletop breeze-makers.

The Massive Summer Scent: Malin + Goetz Bergamot Supercandle

The Affordable AirPods Alternative: JBL Tune 770NC


Tune 770NC Noise-Cancelling Headphones

Rocking out on a budget doesn’t mean you need to settle for subpar audio. JBL’s new Tune 770NC over-ear headphones cost way less than the AirPods Max, but boast an even longer battery life of 70 hours and cushy leather ear cups. For such an affordable pair of headphones, it’s an even bigger boost that they feature adaptive noise-cancelling depending on your environment, so you can tune out the world when you need to.

The Thick-as-Hell Towels: Buffy Bath Towels


Deluxe Cotton Bath Towels (2-Pack)

Buffy’s best known for its temperature-regulating bedding, but it recently expanded into bath towels that are both wildly plushy (at 850 grams per square meter, they’re as thick as a winter sweater) and highly absorbent. In colors like navy, wheat, and lavender, they look even better in pairs, which is just how the brand is selling them right now.

The Non-Dorky Waist Pack: Janji Multipass Mini

For trail runners and travelers, Janji’s Multipass mini bag offers multiple ways to store your small goods (whether suspended by the bungee cords in front or zipped up in the two storage pockets outside). Shoutout to the roomy interior cavity, too, which keeps your passports and soft flasks tucked away. Wear it slung across your body during your sojourns or strapped around your waist when you’re hitting your stride on the trails.

For the Home-Obsessed Audiophile: USM x Symbol

Symbol, a brand that specializes in design-minded record stands and consoles, collaborated with USM on a capsule collection utilizing the latter’s iconic modular shelving. If you’ve got the budget to go big on your audio setup, may as well invest in the vibiest storage to display all that gear.

The Pop-Up Camping Table: Helinox Table Four

Helinox produces some of the lightest, brightest outdoor gear out there, stuff that’s made for portability so you can set up camp in a jiffy. The brand’s Table Four—a collapsible table that, you guessed it, seats four people—is just the latest addition to its lineup that neatly folds up so you can stow it away in your car for impromptu getaways. Pair it with the brand’s colorblocked camping chairs for a cozy backyard or backwoods meal.

For the Person with an AD Subscription: Oak + Fort Senn

Affordable luxury line Oak and Fort is more well-known for minimalist basics than homewares, but it’s recently spun its pared-back aesthetic into a new offshoot of tasteful home goods that it’s calling “Senn”. From abstract vases to muted throw blankets, there’s a lot here under 100 bones that you could pass off as artisanal.


Seth Rogen-Approved Coffee: Houseplant x Cometeer

Cometeer’s flash-frozen coffee is the laziest way to get delicious coffee without dedicating half your counter space to an at-home coffee setup. The brand packs its concentrated brews in a pod that you dilute with water to create a regular cup of Joe—and now Seth Rogen’s weed-loving lifestyle brand Houseplant has teamed up to create two new brews: a dark roast and a light roast. Either should work well as part of a balanced wake and bake.

For Brain Power: Moon Juice Mini Dew

Moon Juice

Mini Dew Electrolyte Powder

Moon Juice’s latest dissolvable supplement is for all of you who aren’t drinking as much water as you should be. The brand took its Mini Dew powder, once only available in a watermelon flavor, and cooked up a pomelo option. New, zingier flavor, but all the same purported benefits: support for collagen production (shoutout to joint health), plenty of vitamins and minerals, and, you know, delicious water. All of which should help you feel like your best, most hydrated self.

For the Chronic Water Drinker: Owala FreeSip Twist

Cult followings around beverage containers are in full swing, thanks in part to the Stanley cup hype. Owala has a similar hype train behind it because of its innovative spout that lets you sip or chug. Its latest release slims down the OG bottle design so it slips more easily into a bag without leaving you high and dry midday.

The Newbie Runner’s Smartwatch: Garmin Forerunner 165

When it comes to fitness trackers, Garmin’s broad line of Forerunners give runners (duh) all the info they need to crush their goals. The newest addition to the collection is the Forerunner 165, a more affordable option for the masses crushing daily park runs and 10Ks. It has 11 days of battery life plus daily suggested workouts that take into account your body’s recovery state, so you can push yourself to be better without pushing yourself over the edge.

For Wet Weather Wanderers: Outerknown Cloudburst Rain Jacket

Outerknown is best know for its surf gear, like its very impressive swim trunks, but we’re glad the brand’s expanding on its outdoor love by releasing its first all-weather rain jacket. The Cloudburst is made with recycled PET and offers some serious protection against the most brutal downpours. There’s always tomorrow’s dawn patrol.

Schmidt Brothers

Artisan Series 7-Piece Knife Block Set

In the world of chef’s knives, Schmidt Bros. is a name to know.

Grab it if you’re looking to hone your chef skills. (Perfect-fitting white t-shirt not included.)

For Speed Racers: Hoka Cielo 1

Hoka is a running shoe brand with a rep for putting comfy clouds on your feet—but the beefy-soled brand does make some serious racers. Like, say, the new Cielo X1. Hoka put all its R&D into one thing: speed. There’s a carbon plate tucked inside the denser, aggressively rockered sole, in an overall lighter shoe than the rest of the brand’s lineup. If you’re a Hoka devotee looking for an edge or just trying to crack open a new PR, lace these up and you’ll likely find yourself soaring to the finish line faster than ever.

The WFH Upgrade: Branch Daily Desk

If your “home office” is still a piece of furniture that you also eat dinner on or watch TV from, please do yourself and your aching spine a favor by investing in a real desk. “Invest” is even a strong word: Branch is turning out clean, handsome home-office furniture at, well, Hoka sneaker prices. The Daily Desk ships flat, assembles in almost no time, and won’t dominate your apartment or that spare bedroom with the futon and your dumbbells. Once you’ve hit “order” on the desk, get the right office chair and watch your productivity increase 10-fold.

Smell-Good Artist Merch: Boy Smells x Kacey Musgraves Deeper Well Candle

Boy Smells x Kacey Musgraves

Deeper Well Scented Candle

Kacey Musgraves released a new single this month and because this is 2024, it’s accompanied by a candle from one of our (and Kacey’s) favorite brands, Boy Smells. Deeper Well—the name of the candle, Musgraves’ new single, and her upcoming album—has aromas of oakmoss, raspberry, sage, and (judging by the song’s lyrics) a blossoming sense of self-love.

The Better Night’s Sleep: Thuma Bedding


Complete Linen Bedding Set


Cotton Percale Duvet Cover

Since releasing its jigsaw-puzzle-like bed frame, Thuma’s been pumping out a consistent stream of bedroom furniture (like these nice side tables it dropped last month). Now the brand wants to deliver the soft stuff, too. From sheet sets to quilts in a variety of fabrics, Thuma’s turned into a one-stop shop for upgrading those eight hours (okay, 5.5 hours) you spend sleeping.

For Always-On Transparency Mode: Bose Ultra Open Earbuds

When are earbuds not exactly earbuds? When Bose gets wild and drops these, the new Ultra Open Earbuds. They basically clip onto the outside of your ears, like an ear cuff, and aim the audio right at your eardrums. Bose says that no one else will hear your ’90s emo playlist—but you’ll be able to hear what’s going on around you. Think of it like adding a soundtrack to your life (though maybe keep your noise-cancelling headphones for the plane).

The Cozy-Boy Launch: Trumbull


Vintage Wash Full-Zip Sweatshirt


Vintage Wash Classic Sweatpant

Aaron Levine, who’s helped revive Abercrombie, Club Monaco, and Madewell, teamed up with Huckberry on a new in-house brand for the online superstore: Trumbull.

For Sleepytime Comfort: Purple DreamLayer Pillow

Purple’s newest release isn’t a mattress, but an adjustable pillow so you can rest your sleepy little head however you please. Like its mattresses, Purple ditches the memory foam for an open-weave GelFlex grid, which helps improve air circulation and prevent you from waking up in a pool of your own sweat. It molds to your head for a cradling feeling, and you can adjust the height if your broad shoulders require more loft.

Thuma’s quick-assembly furniture has expanded to side tables, whether it’s for your bedside or sofa-side. They’re available in four wood finishes to complement your home aesthetic.

A Pedestal for Your Grails: USM x Afternoon Light Perforated Shoe Rack

USM collaborated with the GQ Home Award-approved retailer Afternoon Light on a three-tier shoe rack that’s available in six colors. It’s about as attractive as the shoes you’re going to be putting on it, and when you expand your footwear collection, cop another rack to place side by side.

The Funky French Press: Bodum Caffettiera

Bodum makes some damn good coffee gear, French presses included. As part of a long-going partnership with the MoMA Design Store, the Danish coffee brand decked out its Caffettiera brewer with some colorful accents, notably on the handle and lid.

For Copping a Squat: Ten Thousand Interval Pants

One of our favorite brands for workout shirts and shorts, Ten Thousand took its popular Foundation short and elongated them into pants. Made for heavy lifting (think deadlifts and squats), the Foundation pants are made of a durable, stretchy fabric, which has been tested to withstand over 95,000 rubs in abrasion testing.

The Office Desk Upgrade: Twelve South BookArc Flex

Your laptop probably doesn’t take up much space just lying around on your desk, but if you’re looking to declutter, Twelve South’s latest BookArc Flex lets you keep your laptop sitting upright to open up some space. And if you connect it to an external monitor, you’ll be able to tuck away the computer so it’s out of the way and you have a bigger, better screen to gaze at.

More Bougie Bedding Options: Article Bedding

The online bedding marketplace is a crowded space, and it’s adding another competitor to the mix in the form of Article, one of our favorite places to buy furniture online. The new bedding collection offers the usual suspects, from duvet covers to sheet sets in breezy fabrics like linen and cotton.

A Do-It-All Stanley Substitute: S’well Explorer Bottle

Another water bottle has entered the Stanley cup war—and this time it’s from the skinny water bottle legends, S’well. For a sleek, sizeable tumbler that doesn’t have a wait list down the block (yet), then the Explorer bottle which comes equipped with a sippy straw may be the next best thing.

For the Smoothie Lover With a Small Space: Beast Mini Blender

For small apartment dwellers with a minimal square footage and an even leaner kitchen counter, Beast just unveiled a scaled-down version of its popular hourglass-shaped blender.

The Low-Cost, High-Quality Headphones: JBuds Lux ANC

Great noise-cancelling headphones don’t need to be expensive, at least according to JLab. The brand has staked its reputation on affordable tech that punches way above its price point, and its latest drop is a super-cheap pair of active noise-cancelling headphones called the Lux ANC. This over-the-ear model has a whopping 70-hour battery life (or 40 hours with ANC turned on) and a transparency mode for when you want to remain somewhat grounded in reality. One of its rarer features though is the Bluetooth multipoint functionality—something not even available on some high-end models—which allows you to stream sounds simultaneously from separate devices.

The Stanley Cup Competitor: Miir All Day Straw Cup

You’ve seen the all the hooplah over the Stanley cup, but Miir has just thrown down the gauntlet with its own mega tumbler, the All Day straw cup. It’s made of 90% recycled stainless steel, comes with its own reusable straw (obviously), can keep your bevvies chilled for hours, and you won’t even have to queue up overnight at Target to get one.

The Turntable That’s Gone Wireless: JBL Spinner Bluetooth Turntable


Spinner Bluetooth Turntable

JBL decided to switch things up from its regularly scheduled output of headphones and earbuds by dropping its first-ever turntable recently. This one connects with your speaker via Bluetooth so you don’t have to fuss around with a tangle of wires (though it usually nets better sound quality if you do go the wired route), which makes it an excellent companion to any of the brand’s vast catalogue of Bluetooth speakers and soundbars.
