This pillow is recommended by experts for side sleepers. It offers a bit more support for about the same price.

The status-y French brand Staub makes some of our favorite cookware. This enamel cast-iron skillet in cherry red is both durable and eye-catching.

We found plenty of excellent deals in Nordstrom’s sale section today. To start, here’s a cheery Marimekko umbrella that’s sure to brighten up any rainy day.

It’s been a few years since we dubbed Otherland as an up-and-coming status candle, and the company has certainly lived up to the label.

These sweat-wicking, wrinkle-resistant Lululemon pants are perfect for staying comfortable on days you need to look more put-together. But don’t dillydally; sizes seem to be selling out fast.
