Amazon is probably your go-to for books and the odd household item. But if you dig deep enough, you'll find that there are actually some really awesome brands you can shop on the site. Here are our faves in the home and kitchen categories:
Pendleton, the esteemed maker of distinctly American textiles, has plenty of their classic blankets on the 'zon.
Rivet is a midcentury-inspired brand with a heavy focus on midrange furniture.
Areaware, one of our favorite Brooklyn-based design studios, has many of their most popular trinkets on the site.
This utilitarian home brand focused on storage solutions is perfect for minimalist homes.

You could make the trek out to Barneys to get one of these fancy French candles ... or you could just order one in your jammies.
