COVID-19 has made homebodies out of all of us whether we liked it or not. Throughout the health crisis, we came up with various ways to help us cope with the pandemic stress, such as attempting to harness our inner chefs (maybe even trying our hand in one or two food trends), turning to gardening and plant collecting, or even redecorating our space. Especially redecorating our space.
If, like us, you've found yourself obsessed with homeware during the pandemic, then you're no stranger to the hours spent scouring the internet for the best work-from-home desk lamps, Scandinavian-inspired chairs and tables, affordable kitchen gadgets, and the like.
