TDK Boomboxes

Bringing up the name TDK to music lovers who didn’t grow up with an iPod is  sure to warm their hearts in some way. I’m still a bit young myself, but I certainly have great memories of dubbing  songs off the radio and creating mixtapes with handwritten liner notes. TDK is a storage media company, but has recently branched into the home audio market with these fantastic boombox-inspired stereos.

Cord Lamp by Brendan Ravenhill

Whoa, talk about being pleasantly surprised, this wall Cord Lamp by Brendan Ravenhill is one heck of a deal at $150. If I still lived in the US, I would buy two of these for bedside lamps and then sit back and congratulate myself for finding such a bargain. Simple, modern, and affordable? Music to the ears.

Flax Rug

You might remember the Flocks Aran Rug by Christien Meindertsma, which features a thick knitted sweater pattern. This flax rug is part of Meindertsma’s Flax Project for Thomas Eyck, in which she aims to make a series of products from flax that are produced locally in the Netherlands. (visit to learn more). I like how it feels minimal and modern while its material (and production technique perhaps?) is traditional.

Frame Pendant Lamps by Iacoli and McAllister

These bright frame lights from Seattle based Iacoli & McAllister provide a nice pop of color, don’t they? I know I just posted their Table Light the other day, but I’m liking their collection too much to let it fall by the wayside (or get lost in my bookmarks, which is often the case). Their Spica Light ($800) is pretty fantastic too, but I’ll save that for another day.

Enormous Moon Floor Cushion

Do you go crazy for moon-inspired products too? Are you close to losing it over this e-nor-mous floor cushion? If your home doesn’t have something crazy/nutty/childish, I think this would be good compromise. It’s the moon, in a floor cushion.

Huge, comfortable floor cushion with big thick moleskin-finish outer. Zipped.

Soufi Mat

Is anyone else suffering from these gray days of January-almost-February? I keep being drawn towards bright pops of colors, specifically yellows and reds (you might have noticed) just to shake off some of the dreary dampness. Naturally, this red rug with its Ottoman-inspired pattern caught my eye, and you’ll be glad to know it’s made from 30% recycled PVC, so it’s bright and durable. Just the thing to get us through to spring.

Hand-wash only.
