Looking for a way to inject your interiors with some joy? Step right up KonMari homewares, the new range of interiors accessories from tidying guru Marie Kondo.
Featuring dishes, tea towels, kitchen utensils and a crystal tuning fork, the range has been curated by Marie herself and taking to Instagram, the Netflix star and best-selling author revealed, “I’m so excited to introduce the shop at KonMari. Many people have asked what I use in my everyday life. This online shop is a collection of my favorite things and items that spark joy. The goal of tidying is to make room for meaningful objects, people and experiences. I hope my vision of a joyful life inspires yours.”
While the items are minimalistic in aesthetic, people have taken to social media to voice their concern that the woman who has made her fortune from telling people to have less stuff, now seems to be selling, for want of a better word, stuff.
One fan wrote, “Okay I will be the first to admit I’m a #konmari lifer but you guys she’s SELLING A STICK. #wtf #goop2”.
While another shared, “Marie Kondo: Declutter your home of things you don’t need KonMari shop: Here, but this $75 brass trivet! #konmari”.
But Kondo is defending her decision to launch the line of products, and told the Wall Street Journal that the KonMari method is "not about getting rid of things," but more about keeping things that make you happy.
"It's about heightening your sensitivity to what brings you joy. Once you've completed your tidying, there is room to welcome meaningful objects, people and experiences in your life," she said.
Sticks aside, the bowls are very nice. And the kitchen storage solutions are filling us with a sense of calm just by looking at them.
And more stuff isn’t really that bad… is it?
