Being a home editor is a dangerous game. One day I’m covering the luxe jewel-toned furniture trend, and the next, I’m researching Google’s most-wished-for home items—all while attempting to spare my wallet. But alas, covering design trends and shopping for furniture, décor and gadgets is kind of my thing (at least that’s what I tell myself when I ruthlessly click “add to cart” throughout the week). What I’ve noticed? It seems as if the design industry has adopted a fast-fashion mentality—today’s table lamps and armchairs have about the same lifespan as '80s parachute pants.
That said, it’s my job to stay on top of what’s new in the market and aggressively test products to discern what’s truly worth the hype (head to our PureWow100 review series for more on that). Out of the thousands of products I’ve seen this spring, here are the top ten finds I’ve been obsessing over that won’t lose their luster in six months—promise.
