Welcome to Launch Party, our monthly column where we uncover the best new home and kitchen launches to add to your shopping cart.
Welcome to 2022. While it’s been a stressful start to the year with the unrelenting pandemic, thankfully consumer goods brands are kicking things off with a slew of new launches that encourage relaxation, spark joy or simply add ease to our otherwise hectic lives. Case in point: Brooklinen’s limited edition collection of silk pillowcases and eye masks that are equal parts indulgent and necessary at this moment in time. We would also be remiss to not mention Haus’ delicious pomegranate rosemary aperitif that’s perfect for sipping on cold, wintry nights.
Additionally, several brands also launched kitchen and home essentials that could be handy in the new year. We’re talking Outer’s luxe fire pit table, Acid League’s pantry staples, Drew Barrymore’s new kitchen appliances and an upgraded version of Zinus’ bestselling mattress. In other exciting news, Public Goods just added sustainable wines to its offerings, Simplehuman now sells a trashcan with the face of a 90s icon and DTC brands Material and Made In launched new tabletop accessories. If you need more inspiration for your home and kitchen, you can always check out last year’s launches that are equally as fun and exciting.
