Madewell is a well-loved go-to for premium denim, cozy essentials, and reliable leather, but, take a closer look, and you’ll see there’s a lot more. In fact, you can fully embrace the Madewell lifestyle, not just dress like it.  We discovered their perfectly crafted home decor section and we’re asking ourselves, how did this selection of throw blankets, planters, and kitchen essentials fly under our radar for so long?

Under the Life tab, along with a whole section devoted to Wellness, lies the Home + Gift section, with respective categories for kitchen and bar, bed and bath, home decor, and even DIY and games.  The next time you need a gift, want to browse some new art prints, or collect bespoke planters for your new plant, you’ll want to bookmark this section. It’s just that good. 

Moreover, the majority of the decor items aren’t Madewell branded, but rather a carefully curated selection of bedding, kitchen items, decor, and art from up and coming brands. It’s part of what Madewell calls it Madewell Marketplace, which allows the businesses to be seen by Madewell’s shoppers, but they handle fulfillment and customer service on their own. There’s even a special section devoted to Hometown Heroes, where Madewell highlights various creators and makers from across the country, giving them a platform to reach a larger audience. 

We rounded up several Madewell home decor picks that caught our eye, and we think you’ll be pretty impressed with their selection. So yes, you can now buy your favorite jeans and aesthetically-pleasing homewares at the same exact time.
