Anthropologie is one of my all-time favorite home decor brands. No, really — if I was forced to choose one retailer at which to shop for the rest of my life, I'd know my answer in seconds. Anthro all the way.

Given this enduring and lifelong obsession, it should come as no shock that I am quite enthralled with and knowledgable about the brand's home-related product offerings. Indeed, I've spent many hours perusing its stylish shelves for plates and pillows, and probably even more time scrolling online, where I'm endlessly impressed by its even larger selection and colorful, trendy offerings.

Like any editor, though, I have my favorites, some of which I nailed down during a recent in-store visit (I like to take frequent trips just to get a sense of what I'm writing about. It makes recommending things even easier!). Below, find a current round-up of what I'm loving the most, including accent chairs, sofas, and more.

Here's also hoping all or some of these delectable picks will be included in the Anthropologie sale for Memorial Day, which should kick off sometime around May 20th and run through the weekend. I'll be updating that page as the sale gets closer then begins in earnest, so be sure to bookmark it for easy access to all the best deals and highlights.

Anthropologie's Best Lights

Anthropologie's lighting section is particularly enticing — unexpected little gems that (literally) glow with personality and style.

You can view the full Anthropologie lighting section here.

Anthropologie's Best Furniture

Many of my favorite designers — Noa Santos, Olga Ashby, Brigette Romanek — are using soft colors and rounded textures right now. Such tones create infinitely liveable spaces that invite you to take your shoes off and relax. That's the vibe of much of Anthro's furniture, too — an elevated take on design.

Anthropologie's Best Home Decor

I often like to browse Anthropologie's new-in accessories section for inspiration. The dominance is particularly strong when it comes to collections of vases and candlesticks, though its area rugs are some of the softest available at this price level.

Of course, Anthropologie has so much more on offer than just my edit, and you can view all of Anthropologie new home arrivals here.
