1. Dusen Dusen
Can’t get enough bold, original prints? You’ll love Dusen Dusen. Designer Ellen Van Dusen launched Dusen Dusen in 2010 and has since expanded with the launch of Dusen Dusen Home. Turns out, our homes need these gorgeous patterns just as much as our closets!
After earning her MBA, Abigail Cook Stone hatched the idea for Otherland, and our homes have never been the same. Searching for candles that double as decor? You’ll love these colorfully fragrant candles — you just may not be able to pick a single favorite.
Founded in 2017 by Ashley Spierer, Daughter of the Land was created with intention and purpose. Sourcing strictly organic and fair-trade food-grade ingredients, using eco-friendly packaging and employing ethical business practices are the cornerstones of the business. So, you can look *and* feel good when you use these products.
As a married 30-something standing in the drug store, Maude founder Éva Goicochea finally said enough. She then formed Maude, a modern sexual wellness company built on quality, simplicity and inclusivity. With wipes, oils, candles, toys and more, there’s something for everyone.
