Scholten & Baijings Tea Towels

You might be familiar with the blankets and cushions of Scholten & Baijings, which are entirely amazing and retail anywhere from ~$250 per pillow and ~$700 – $1,700 per blanket (expensive, but, as I said, a-maze-ing). These graphic tea towels for Hay Denmark are an affordable way to enjoy the design duo’s fluorescent patterns; the towels cost $32 for a set of 2.

Punkt DP01 Phone

If the name Jasper Morrison rings your bell, you’ll be ecstatic to know his shop is now online. And what lovely offers are on hand? Well, the Punkt phone, of course, designed my Mr. Morrison himself. If you still have a landline, I’d say it’s a great choice; there’s a fully integrated answer machine, phonebook, and ten ringtones to choose from. The handset is upside down, which allows you to read who’s calling and answer the phone without picking it up.

Woodnotes Flake Curtain

I don’t know if you feel the same way, but I’ve always struggled a tiny bit with deciding on window coverings. Finding something that provided privacy without being too formal or too frilly, or frankly, too I-just-bought-this-from-IKEA, is always a long drawn out search, with the result often being I end up making something myself. I should add that this DIY window covering is hastily made and almost always unfinished. The solution might just be getting this textured tyvek curtain. It looks soft, modern and entirely interesting.

Quote Hook coat hook

Need a bit of inspiration when heading out the door? These coat hooks from Blend Design will do the trick. Choose between ‘Keep Moving Forward’, ‘You Make It Happen’, and ‘Live Your Life’. I can think of a few others that I’d like to see (‘stop your whining’ ‘get over it’ etc.) but they wouldn’t necessarily be labeled as inspirational.

Blackened Metal Mirror by West Elm

I’ve been pretty impressed with the quality of designs coming out of West Elm lately. I’m haven’t been the hugest champion of their case goods, but I think their accessories have been spot-on.

These mirrors have a refined blackened frame, and would be perfect in an entry, above a fireplace or above a dresser. The round one (above) is 30″ diameter and $149, while the small rectangular one is 36″ x 24″ and $129. The large one (not shown) is $349, and is not one solid mirror but features smaller mirror tiles.

Placa Lamps

The Placa Lamp is a charming little light that rests on a simple board. This plinth-like base sets off the lamp and switch elements, making a sort of stage to set items upon. The double and triple versions have additional lamp shades, which add to the stage feel (almost like actors conspiring). To purchase, please contact the Show Me Gallery directly at geral(at)showme.com.pt.

Izola Soap Dishes

Soap dishes aren’t the most important things, I know, but these caught my eye. The Scout Soap Dish states ‘I PLEDGE TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE, TO BE TRUE AND BRAVE’ which is a rather nice reminder, don’t you think?

Three Potato Four Chalkboard

If you’ve never heard of Three Potato Four, and you like antiques and flea market finds, you’re in for a treat. Besides having their own brick and mortar store located in Philadelphia, PA, they’ve now teamed up with Urban Outfitters to design 3-P4, an eight-piece home collection inspired by the items from their shop. Stu Eli, who owns and runs the store with his wife Janet Morales, says their aim was to create items “manufactured for everyday use”.
