HAVE YOU SEEN THIS?? The New Products Jess Can’t Keep To Herself Any Longer

Ok here’s the deal. I spend likely too much time “fantasy shopping”. I can’t help myself. I see a new line drop or a beautiful new item on Instagram and my adrenaline goes through the roof. It’s involuntary but also a deep passion. So since you all probably have better things to do with your time or you know, have self-control and not scour online shops daily, you might have missed some of the new things to hit the market recently. Fear not because I have no life and want to talk about beautiful new products ALL. DAY. LONG.

Originally this was supposed to be a small but fun post. Maybe 20 or so items that I was really lusting after. Well, my friends, let’s just say self-control isn’t my thing and there are more than 20 items I’ll be showing you today (and that’s not even including the new outdoor goods that popped up after Ryann did this post). I mean when it comes to decor I have a very hard time not wanting to celebrate all of the things I love. The libra in me simply can’t make a decision when needing to cull back products that deserve their time in the sun. I think ultimately you all benefit.

Now, this post isn’t meant to be a “BUY THIS! AND THIS! O AND DON’T FORGET THIS BEAUTY!” But if you are in need of a little decor shake-up or have searching high and low for the perfect “fill in the blank,” I want to show you how even swapping out (or adding) something to your home can really make everything feel brand spanking new.

Let’s start with the Portland Project Living Room by switching out the pedestal side table for fun.

Example One

First off the original side table on the left is still perfection. But let’s say we really wanted to “modern the joint up”. This graphic and bold table still has the same silhouette and natural wood material but gives off a much bigger edge and contrast to that beautiful vintage chair.

Example Two

Again, Julie’s current pendant is perfect but trying out something new is fun! Both pendants are made with organic materials but the softness of the wicker one gives a totally different feel from the geometric one. (P.S. The scale of the mocked up example is likely off so make sure to measure for your own space:))

Example Three

Ok, the photoshopped stools are NOT the right scale either but I do think it’s fun to see a totally different look (except for having backs… Emily Henderson is VERY pro backed stools for the comfort they provide). Also, these are from Target!

Example Four

Let’s mix up some wood tones! That Article sideboard is an EHD favorite but look at how different the room looks with a new and lighter wood tone in town. Both are so pretty (though a dresser as a media console would be tricky… but THOSE HANDLES!)

Example Five

Last but not least we have my old living room. I love that little Target table lamp (no longer available) but throwing in that wicker shade BEAUTY gives a ton of texture to space that it didn’t have before. Both are great but I really like how the new one makes my eyes feel!

Hopefully, with these examples, you can see the value of switching out something (or moving it to another room) and how it can really inject new energy into your space if you want it. So I’ll stop gabbing and get to the real reason you all clicked in…THE PRETTY STUFF.

1. Kenly Table Lamp | 2. Althea Wicker Pendant | 3. Paul McCobb Table Lamp | 4. Happy Pendant Light | 5. Sidnie Lamp – Juniper | 6. 24″ Ormandy Rod Pendant | 7. Desk Lamp with USB Ports | 8. Willow Rattan Floor Lamp | 9. Verner 3-Tiered Pendant | 10. Rik Adjustable Floor Lamp | 11. Vita Lamp | 12. Paul McCobb Table Lamp | 13. Modern Metal Table Lamp | 14. Paul McCobb Pendant | 15. Illona Floor Lamp | 16. Ina Table Lamp | 17. Floor Lamp With Fluted Shade | 18. Tripod Floor Lamp | 19. Frasco Brass Flush Mount | 20. Janice Wall Sconce | 21. Palomino White Table Lamp

Lighting, lighting, lighting you are my favorite (as also proven in this post). I feel like there is something for everyone in this roundup! For the more natural lovers #2, #7, #8, #9, #11, and #21 are right up your alley. Actually, #7 is a pretty great affordable dupe for Em’s favorite table lamp. For the ultra-modern you have #4, #5, #13, and #19. And of course the vintage-inspired lovers (shout out to the CB2 and Paul McCobb collab!) there’s #1, #3, #12, #14, #15, and #17. Clearly, I love ALL of these lights and hope if you are looking there’s one that’s perfect for you:)

1. Diana White Queen Bed | 2. 4-Piece Leather Sectional | 3. Solene Platform Bed | 4. Studio McGee Upholstered Sofa | 5. Marienne Bed | 6. Leisure Power Recliner Sofa

I love all of these pieces (duh) but can we just take a moment to admire the beauty of that Target sofa. So chic! Also, #6 is a DOUBLE reclining sofa so yes, dreams do come true and that leather sofa is so freaking cool without being too loud. Then for the beds, they are all so special and so different. Which is your favorite??

1. Tate Bench | 2. Stilted Storage Ottoman | 3. Escalante Storage Bench | 4. Borrego Small Round Ottoman | 5. Clara Entryway Bench | 6. Round Pom Pom Pouf

My top pick is #4 because while not inexpensive, it looks like it costs triple that. Everything from the fabric choice to the thickness of the legs is SO GOOD. But if storage is what you need, both #2 and #3 are awesome options. Then #1, #5, and #6 are all testaments to the fact that texture is chic in any style (plus that pom pouf is so fun and great for that price:))

1. Round Swivel Barrel Chair | 2. Cane Counter Height Stool | 3. Celeste Accent Chair | 4. Bozzi Chair | 5. Wood Chair with Woven Seat | 6. Weiss Accent Chair | 7. Compass Bar Stool | 8. Reese Curved Chair | 9. Curved Back Dining Chair | 10. Low and Wide Accent Chair | 11. Mixed Material Counter Height Stool | 12. Rivera Leather Recliner | 13. Cane Counter Height Stool | 14. Aria Chair | 15. Dame Dining Chair

Wow can a special chair make/change a room. While all of these are pretty neutral in color, the shapes are incredibly special. Take #12. Those arms are so freaking cool and really elevate what could have easily been a perfectly nice (but not that interesting) recliner. However, comfort doesn’t have to always be sacrificed for shape. All I want to do is curl up in #4, #8, and #14.

1. Ralston 6-Drawer Dresser | 2. Statuer Black End Table | 3. Oval Wood Console Table | 4. White Oak Accent Table | 5. Nadia Low Credenza | 6. Darma Stool | 7. Grayson Kitchen Island | 8. Fayette Nightstand | 9. Studio McGee Round Coffee Table | 10. Kono Dresser | 11. Rosswood Counter Stool | 12. Noralee Coffee Table | 13. Shadow Blackened Wood Dining Table | 14. Rattan & Wood Bedside Cabinet | 15. Linnea 5-Drawer Dresser | 16. Palms Desk | 17. Delta Side Table | 18. Port Blackened Wood Nightstand

You already know the handles on #1 are very dear to my heart to but #15 has a similar vibe at almost half of the price. Also, can you believe that #9 is from Target?! There’s a matching side table too juuuust in case you were wondering:) The last thing I’ll say is that #7 is a freaking kitchen island and would make any kitchen so pretty (and done right could give off some serious deVOL energy).

1. Anaise Cane Room Divider | 2. Rolf Floor Mirror | 3. Valentina Screen | 4. Elise Floor Mirror | 5. Aria Room Divider Screen | 6. Floor Mirror with Ladder and Hooks

Room dividers have been coming back into style for a little while. But now there are some INCREDIBLY cool ones that will kick up your room’s style into the highest of gears. #5 is definitely more decorative than function but is insanely cool. Then while the striped Sarah Ellison one is a pretty penny, it’s also so clear that’s it’s a forever, pass down to the kids/grandkids kinda piece.

1. Geo Moroccan Hand Tufted Shag Area Rug | 2. Drum Basket | 3. Checkerboard Throw Pillow | 4. Lucian Long Lumbar Pillow | 5. Indoor/Outdoor Geo Rug | 6. Araati Blue Floral Pillow Cover | 7. Modern Geometric Rug | 8. Embroidered Modern Lumbar Pillow | 9. Embroidered Thin Line Lumbar Pillow | 10. Bigoulin Mini Duffchon | 11. Dylan Rug | 12. Indoor/Outdoor Checkered Rug

I promise that I didn’t pick out all of these checkered patterns on purpose. I don’t know if I have a problem (likely) or they are just everywhere (another BIG possibility) but I’m not tired of them yet. Actually, #10 was a last-minute add-on from the new Sarah Sherman Samuel Etsy Edit. It took every inch of willpower I had in me to not hit add to cart (to be fair I was meeting with a financial planner and buying a pillow that I don’t have a definite plan for seemed counterproductive…also growing up is SCARY). But there’s a high chance of it sneaking into my MOTO once I get to the finishing touches so keep an eye out.

1. Large White Planter with Wood Stand | 2. Barred Wood Vase | 3. Helsop Vase | 4. Ceramic Stoneware Vase | 5. Vinia Multitaper Holder | 6. Narrow Black Wood Vase | 7. Ramona Mint Pitcher | 8. Sin Doline Vase | 9. Archer Planter | 10. Light + Ladder Tava Vase | 11. Blossom Taper Candle Holder | 12. Tall White Bust Vase

Oh man, I love getting into the little pretty things and if my last kitchen was any indication, I love candlestick holders. I also have a vessel obsession as proven by my EHD prop garage loot. I love “the age” of that dark wood vase (#2) so much. A definite “instant soul” piece. I also think that the mix of the modern clean shape and black wood of #6 is so stunning. #7 is kind of an EHD no-brainer piece because it can be used as a vase or pitcher! Those circle handles are so awesome. Lastly, if you don’t know Virginia Sin of Sin Ceramics go now. Her vessel (#8) is such a statement and will bring in a true piece of art into your room.

1. Abstract Wood Bull | 2. Andrea Glass Storage Containers | 3. Marble Bookends | 4. Robin Fruit Basket | 5. Hilo Lava Stone and Resin Tray | 6. Brass Wall Ledge

Did you think I could end this post without grouping of beautiful stragglers?? No way. So here they are. #1 is an AWESOME object that will surely make your space both cool and will be a conversation starter when people can come to your house again. Those food containers (#2) are incredible and affordable! I can’t tell you how hard it was for me to find food containers that were stylish and not a million dollars. I did find some that are fine so I won’t be switching them out for these. But if you are still on the hunt CONGRATS because you can be the owners of these cuties! Now I could talk about each piece but I will spare as you can clearly see how great they are. BUT that grid tray is incredible and such a freaking great styling piece. DON’T MISS OUT. I know it’s not cheap but if you need a tray and can swing the $129, DO IT.

See? Wasn’t that a blast??? I hope that either your fantasy shopping itch was scratched or you found a great new piece to make your home feel even better. As design lovers, I think it’s kinda our duty to appreciate design whether it’s just looking or buying. So let me know what you think? How do you feel about these cool shapes? Has there been anything you’ve seen recently you need to show us? Let’s talk shop in the comments:)

Love you, mean it.

Jess, YES. It was a total blast! Look, I love a MOTO or a new room reveal as much as anyone, but I don’t currently have the luxury of funding a major makeover anywhere at my house. What I do have is endless capacity for small upgrades and swap-outs, as you so beautifully illustrate, and the gorgeous furnishings you laid out in this piece provide me with lots of new ideas. Thank you for providing this small-scale-but-big-impact inspiration.

“The libra in me simply can’t make a decision when needing to cull back products that deserve their time in the sun. I think ultimately you all benefit.”

Lol. We certainly do. Lots of good stuff to dream about here.

I think you folks should do a post about astrology and decorating. For ex., Shavonda Gardner talks about being a Taurus and how it influences her design style/choices. This could be a really fun topic! Just my 2 cents.

It could be a regular post – once a month and not just a one off post 🙂

Please no astrology. I can’t believe it’s on several design blogs already. It’s all a sham. No wonder people are anti science

Please no astrology. Unless you give equal time to unicorns, fairies, and dragons.

Lane: The fact that, on occasion, I find astrology to be FUN and HUMOROUS — remember what harmless fun is like?? — has zero to do with a belief in science.

You know, you don’t HAVE to rush to judgment.

Judging other people’s belief systems and putting them down isn’t okay.
While astrology isn’t something I pursue, I’m not going to slam it down.
If nothing else, it can be interesting to learn about other belief systems.

Great photoshop work, Jess. So fun to see different pieces in previously designed rooms. And I love the idea of swapping small accessories as a way to freshen a room (moving around furniture is great method to cure design boredom, too).

Love all of the things!! Thank you for this post. I always love round ups but for some reason I really enjoyed this one, maybe these picks just really resonated with my style, but for whatever reason I particularly enjoyed this one.

Woohoo! My fiancé worked on the drawings for the Paul McCobb pieces for CB2. We ordered the light fixture #14 in the white version and it is such a good large scale and good quality.

Absolutely love the #5 three candlestick holder. It’s so cool! Wish I had a place for it.

I love this post! And I want to know more about that Target barrel chair. Is it comfy? sturdy? I love it and want to get two right now but scared that there is no way it can be as great as I think given the price! Has anyone seen this in person??

Jess – love the pictures of new items swapped into previous rooms. It was a great way to see how one item can make a large difference in the feeling you get.

So, as a mega shopper/or at least browser, can you (or anyone else) help me with a question? Jeremiah Brent said in an interview that he loves shopping on – I went and took a look and there is something that I collect that is hard to find in the US (and on the US version of ebay) but is ALL over the French version. Do you have any hints on how to buy from there? Do you have to set up a new log in (when I logged in on the site it immediately took me back to the US site)? Any ideas welcome!

It’s so weird – most of the listing say they will ship to the entire world (or to areas with some exceptions) but when I tried to add one to a cart or to purchase immediately, an address screen pops up. It has a drop down with a lot of countries but when I select États Unis it doesn’t allow it and pops right back to France. Ugh. Have to figure this out – there is stuff I want to buy!

I often just use the local eBay site, but search ‘Worldwide’ under ‘Location.’ The default typically limits listings to the U.S.

This way you only capture sellers who ship worldwide, but you include ones based in France.

I collect vintage copper pots, and often buy them from France or the UK. The prices are often SO much cheaper than U.S. sellers that it’s worth hefty shipping costs.

i love posts like these! it’s so nice to have someone with great taste pulling all these together in one place. i may have had to buy some new lighting today! 🙂

I absolutely love this post! So fun, affordable and helpful, all with Jess’s gorgeous style. I snapped up two of the JWDA-style Target lamps immediately—I’d been looking at the pricier versions for months but couldn’t afford them, so this is a dream. Hope this post becomes a regular series!

Love photos showing the impact of adding a new piece or even swapping in from another room to change things around. The big reveals that are styled to the teeth are gorgeous eye candy but for someone like me who’s never been in a position of decorating an entire room in one fell swoop, they’re not relatable. It’s always been one piece at a time for me.

Second to Em, I come to the blog for Jess’ eye. This was a real treat!

I bought the Robin Fruit Basket from Urban Outfitters 2 weeks ago, so yay! It is on back order though…it is so great, however, and I can’t wait for it to arrive.

I love all your picks, but wish they were more in the target budget range lol…that taupe velvet studio Mcgee chair is to die for….!

Can you please tell us where the three seater beige sofa prominently displayed in the top photograph is from? You have everything else listed but that, yet that’s what I want. It’s perfect for my space.

I really love this post, especially seeing how swapping out one item in a room can totally change the look or vibe. Would love to see more of these!

Some lovely things but to me the before and after shots at the top were so marginal that I feel it would be a waste of the planet’s scarce resources to change in that basis. You could use as one if those kids’ ‘spot the difference‘ games.
Does the site get a commission if these links are clicked on? Whether yes or no, I think in the spirit of transparency and openness, it would be good to disclose either way.
