Gramovox Bluetooth Gramophone

Gramophones made in the 1920s did a couple of things really well; they distributed sound and made a big visual impact with their curvy, horn speakers. Considering we are all about streaming music from our devices nowadays, it's good to see that Gramovox has married the old Gramophone design with bluetooth technology, giving us the Gramovox Bluetooth Gramophone, a sort of nostalgic filter in which to play our tunes. The ...Read more

Snow Peak Wooden Stacking Mug Set

Snow Peak's wooden stacking mugs might not look like much, but if you're out on a day trip, they're a perfect pairing for a full carafe of hot tea or coffee. Hand-crafted in Japan, they're lightweight, durable, and, in my opinion, a pleasure to hold. Consider adding them to your lunch, picnic, or campsite bag for a more tactile (and dignified?) drinking receptacle. You may also purchase the mugs separately, ...Read more

Wish Lists 2014

One of a Kind Quilt by Piet Hein Eek

Recycled quilts are great, but recycled quilts from Piet Hein Eek and Borre Akkersdijk are even better. They're made of unused silk necktie fabrics, and were inspired by a visit to a former ties factory in Milan called the Spazio Rosanna Orlandi. All those silky fabrics with interesting patterns being reused to keep us warm? Yes, please. Smart, and sort of not surprising, considering Piet Hein Eek's work in recycled ...Read more

Pivot Koostik Passive Amplifier

I know, I know, a block of wood with some strange carvings won't make much sense until you pair the title with the picture. It's the Pivot Koostik Passive Amplifier, and it does just what it says- it passively amplifies sound on your iPhone. Two channels allow you to set your phone in either landscape or portrait mode, and you can customize the face. However, fair warning, this is more ...Read more

Two versions are available from Adap.Table (the Delta or the Ribbon) and a contribution of $130 gets you a set of two (add hinges for a fold down table) or $230 gets you a set of four. Made of robust steel, each set of legs ...Read more

Dearborn Glassware

What says 'grown-up glassware' more than the $70 per piece price tag of the Dearborn Glassware? Maybe the intricate, fluted Borosilicate glass, or the knowledge that each piece was expertly created by master glassblowers in the Czech Republic. Borosilicate glass, if you didn't know, gives thermal resistance, which translates into a durability appropriate for daily use- it's safe to use in ovens, microwaves, and dishwashers- and that gives us all a ...Read more
