9.9.2 Box : Tray

What’s the big deal about a walnut tray? Well, if you own anything, you know that little things tend to multiply, and it helps to have a tray handy to corral important things together. For instance, in the living area, a tray, such as the 9.9.2 Box you see above, would be an ideal spot to hold magazines and those unsightly TV remotes. In the kitchen, a tray would make a short job of setting the table- you can carry an armload’s worth of stuff safely to and fro. Use one in the office for an important stack of papers or in the bedroom for a safe spot for your phone, keys, and other pocket contents. The 9.9.2 Box : Tray is handmade from solid four quarter American black walnut. Check out OnOurTable to see more of their Box Collection, as various sizes (some with lids) are available.

reCAP Mason Jar Pour Cap

You might have liked the Cuppow Mason Jar Lid, but what about the reCAP Mason Jar Pour Cap?

And, if you’re feeling a bit sad because you have no Mason jar, don’t you worry, you can buy one of those from Mason Jars Company as well.

Starry Light by Anagraphic

If you’re fond of constellations, then you’ll like this Starry Light by Anagraphic. The hemispheric shade lends itself to a pattern of the Northern Hemisphere’s two equinoxes and solstices and a LED light fixture projects most of its light downwards, with just enough residual light to bring out the stars on your walls. Also, as the lamp is manufactured by hand, you may customize the light to a specific date, time and geographical location.

Hot Kettle

Not that you need the warning, but this kettle gets HOT. The stainless steel body and handle have a distinct industrial vibe and its two red buttons safely release steam and hot water. Designed by Selab + Alessandro Zambelli for Seletti, it’ll heat your water up safely and efficiently. (Note: boiling water in a pan for tea or coffee is sad. Get a kettle.)

Holmes Sconce

It doesn’t take much deductive reasoning to select this Holmes Sconce from Schoolhouse Electric as one of the better options in the marketplace. It might be inspired by the classic candle sconce in the days before electricity, but the minimalist lines in its steel backplate marks it firmly in the present. Make it your own by choosing a specialty bulb, and know that the smaller size would fit almost anywhere you need an extra source of light.

Animal Boxes

A couple of years ago I saw a few of these Animal boxes by Karl Zahn lined up along a windowsill in someone’s home, and it struck me how it would be a thoughtful tradition to give one each year as a gift for a friend or loved one. Each box represents a “power” animal, a sort of totem for one’s ambitions. Plus, there’s just enough room inside for something small and special should you decide to take the gift a step further.

Squares Blanket

Autumn weather means cozying up with sweaters, and when available, wrapping yourself up in a warm blanket. For those chillier fall evenings, be sure you have a soft throw lying within reach of the sofa, as it’s better to use a throw than to turn up the heat (save money, save energy). This Squares Blanket by Zuzunaga is woven by hand using 100% ecological French merino wool, and just try not to feel anything other than cheeriness when covered, all safe and warm, with its bright pattern of squares.

Tool The Bookworm: Quill, Hand and Pen

I know, you rarely have time for books, and even then it’s safe to say you’re likely to pick up a Kindle or iPad instead of a paperback or hardcover. However, on that rare occasion you do read a book, it’d be nice to have a bookmark made of a digitally etched sheet of golden brass, wouldn’t it? Tom Dixon brings us the Quill, Hand and Pen, all of which would be quite at home in any of your favorite books.

SnapRays Guidelight

There aren’t many night lights to write home about (except for the Night Light Galaxy), and even less that are considered particularly safe for those kiddos running around. That’s exactly why it’s worth taking a look at the SnapRays Guidelight. It replaces your standard electrical outlet cover plate, and lights the way with LEDs embedded along the bottom edge. No more clunky night lights hogging your outlets. Installation is easy (no wiring necessary), it simply clips around your outlet to draw power (5 milliamps = ~10 cents a year). A light sensor automatically detects when it’s needed, allowing it to turn on in the dark and off when it’s light.

Kobenstyle Casserole – Green

Yes, your memory serves correct, we have featured the Kobenstyle Casserole dish before, but that was back in 2012 and it was a bright, tomato red. This time it’s done in a green color exclusive to MoMA, and, who knows, that might appeal to your kitchen’s aesthetic more than the red ever did. Kobenstyle was created in 1956 for Dansk®, a Danish manufacturer, and remains well known today for its lighter-weight enameled steel. The lid is especially handy with its cruciform handles; invert it and use it as the pot’s trivet.
