Surprisingly, Madewell, everyone's favorite hipster-cool clothing store, quietly added a small selection of home goods to its website late last year. Perhaps less surprisingly, we were in love. Now, the retailer has expanded the line-up, including a partnership with The New Denim Project, a company that creates textile from — you guessed it — your old, worn-out jeans. The full line-up of Madewell's home decor is as cool as you'd expect. Here are our top picks:
