Every month, we curate a list of the coolest décor items culled from all the leading home retailers' latest collections. Spanning rising names like Year & Day and Hem to established powerhouses like CB2 and Anthropologie, we sift through every brand's new arrivals section in search of standout pieces truly worth splurging on.
