bendo luxe wall hooks

1. CLIP Luxe Wall Hook by BENDO

We don’t mean to brag, but Bendo’s CLIP Wall Hooks went viral on our TikTok earlier this month – so clearly, they’re doing something right. The Luxe version of their best-selling paperclip design features ultra-modern, neutral, and metallic finishes for a sleek, high-end look. Each one of these durable wall hooks can hold up to 13 lbs. and be used both in and outdoors, making them much more than playful wall decor (watch interior decorate Dani Klaric put hers to the test on her TikTok!). Use them to hang hats, towels, bags, scarves, or to display and store vinyl records, and other prized items. Just one note! Bendo goods are carefully shipped from their home base in Australia, and 100% worth the wait.

Open Spaces’ Shelf Risers are a holy grail for small space living.

3. FACETT Mirror by Puik Design

A not-so-secret weapon for making small spaces appear larger, mirrors are a must for adding depth and natural light to a room. The FACETT Mirror cleverly turns this trope on its head thanks to its three-dimensional design that gives depth to a typically flat object. The precise edge cuts give the modern wall mirror a sleek, geometric look while the playful 3D aesthetic doesn’t take itself too seriously.

innermost lamp

6. YOY Wall Light by Innermost

When living in a smaller space, the less you have on floors and surfaces, the better. Which is why wall mounted light fixtures like the YOY Wall Light by Innermost are so essential. Unlike your typical wall sconce, the YOY projects light back onto the wall in the shape of a lampshade, creating a modern optical illusion that even your minimalist friends will appreciate. Cleverly hidden inside the fixture’s crisp white aluminum and steel form, the YOY’s light source projects a powerful glow that’s functional and decorative at once.
