Here at Design Milk, we think the only thing better than good design, is sharing modern finds with friends. And our fellow design-lovers at Hunker feel the same way – from homeowner hacks and how-tos, to furniture shopping tips and interior design inspo, they’re no strangers to dishing out solid design advice and recommendations to inspire your next home project. Which is why we were delighted when the Hunker Editors shared their editor-approved picks from the Design Milk Shop ! Read on to see what Hunker Recommends.

Granny Candleholder by Northern
“Northern has thoughtfully reimagined candleholders in a way that makes them stylized for today’s day and age. In addition to the minimalistic look of the holder, I love how it’s actually functional. There’s a bowl-shaped base to catch wax drippings, while the brass knob assists you in removing leftover wax from the holder’s interior. Perfect for a Dickens-inspired interior with a contemporary twist.” — Anna Gragert, Senior Lifestyle Editor

OneClock Alarm Clock
“I’m continuously on the hunt for ways to make my morning routine more calm, and this gorgeous OneClock Alarm Clock looks like just the ticket. It promises a gentle wake-up – with soothing music (composed by Grammy-award winning artists) instead of a buzzing, chirping, blindingly-bright phone – and a stunning, sustainable design that looks more like a piece of art than a utilitarian item.” — Jamie Birdwell-Branson, Senior Utility Editor

Beast Blender by Beast Health
“As a shopping editor, I’m constantly bombarded with sleek kitchen appliances that promise both style and function. While not all of them live up to the hype, the Beast Blender is a rare one that actually exceeds it. Sure, it’s compact and design-forward, but it also blends like a dream and has both a quick pulse feature and a perfectly timed minute-long blend cycle. The different attachments help easily convert it to a food processor when needed and also make cleaning a breeze – plus, I love that it’s not overly loud.” — Katie Maguire, Senior Commerce Editor

Varick 20 Self-Watering Pot by Greenery Unlimited
“This plant pot is the ultimate marriage of aesthetic and functionality. Not only is the overall design SO chic, it also includes an elevated base which hides a water reservoir for self-watering. As someone who constantly forgets to water my plants, this piece is a life (and plant) saver.” — Lacey Won, Senior Social Media Manager

Sand Rug by Heymat
“If I had to pick one word to describe this doormat it would be: mesmerizing. The unique sculptural design, reminiscent of a Japanese Zen Garden, is impossible not to look at and it just begs to be touched. Plus, it’s made from 100% recycled plastic, so you can feel good about splurging on a stylish piece to welcome your houseguests.” — Ariane Moore, Senior Design Editor
