Not only do the clever charging stands from Courant eliminate the need for multiple eyesores, they’re decor in and of themselves. They’ve got a few styles to choose from but the Mag2 is our current fave. The upright design is perfect for a home office since you can use it while you take a video cal and charge those hard working AirPods.

SHOP Open Spaces • $48 Nesting Trays–Set of 3 From the coffee table to your nightstand, fancy up those bibs and bobs with a chic catchall. We’re particularly fond of the trio of nesting trays from Open Spaces which can be used together or separately to host everything from fancy candles to your Airpods. (Or, let’s be real. Pacifiers, old receipts and the handful of rocks your kid brought home from the playground.) SHOP YellowPop • $890 Drip Face by Girl Knew York Neon Light Anyone can hang a picture on their wall, but true trendsetters opt for something a bit brighter. The neon lights from YellowPop are bold enough to hold space solo but also make a super cool addition to a gallery wall. They’ve got tons to choose from and you can even design your own unique piece. But if we had to pick a favorite it would be this incredible collaboration with New York City tattoo Artist Girl Knew York. Her simple line drawings translate perfectly to neon lights!
