In celebration of its 10th birthday, The Sill, the direct-to-consumer houseplant company, is hosting a major sale event on some of its best-selling plants and planters. The company got its start in New York in 2012 with the idea that “plants make people happy,” and has since expanded to several other cities, including Los Angeles, Boston, and Chicago. During the month of May, use the code BIRTHDAY to take 10 percent off one item, 20 percent off two items, and 30 percent off three or more items in the birthday sale collection, which includes favorites like the fiddle leaf fig, snake plant, and philodendron.

It’s house plant season

And for everything else, including a stylish robe and comfortable bedding, these companies are committed to helping you do a little better for the planet while you catch some Zs.

If you live in the city, you probably don’t have acres of yard or a sprawling patio (if you have access to any private outdoor space at all, you’re in a fortunate minority). Choose furniture, gadgets, and decor items that work in your space, and you’ll find yourself with an outdoor living paradise.

A side table adds functionality and convenience, providing a great place to set drinks and food, eyeglasses, the remote, and other items. Some people use them for lamps, floral arrangements, photos, and other decor items. Others use a stylish side table as a design element, either as a cohesive piece that brings the other furniture in the room together or for a unique pop of color. If you have a small space, you may be limited in size. However, these 12 side tables ensure that you won’t be limited in style and function, while also not breaking the bank, with selected pieces ranging in price from $100 to $450.

While it can be exciting to live in The City That Never Sleeps, you are not the city, and you do, indeed, need to sleep. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend at least seven hours of sleep per night. A good night’s sleep helps the body to rest and recuperate, and it even positively affects your mental health. However, work and family stress, unhealthy habits – and yes, living in The City That Never Sleeps – can all wreak havoc on your ability to sleep soundly. These are the best items you need to sleep well at night and awake refreshed the next day.
