ACCESSORIES

Elsie Dodds

I’m more than a little taken with these alphabet cushions by Elsie Dodds. Each cushion is decorated with all sorts of imagery attached to a particular letter which is printed on the reverse. It’s up to you whether you find it appropriate for your living room or for someone learning their ABCs, and maybe for some of you it’ll be both.

Clap on Cube Clock

Yes, it’s a clap-on-clap-off clock. And you thought that particular technology had fallen by the wayside… not so! The LED responds to any sound, so whether you clap or make some other loud noise, the display will be activated. There’s an alarm feature as well, if you need it.

Available in dark and light wood veneer.
Clap your hands to make RED LED time appear.

Belkin Conserve Insight

Continuing their line of energy-saving products as part of their Conserve line, Belkin recently released the Insight, a plug-in energy monitor that will track electricity consumption of any device plugged into it (wattage), carbon dioxide produced, as well as the actual monetary cost of energy usage. Definitely useful for the gadgets you leave on all day like your computer, but it will also aid in finding and keeping tabs on the not-so-obvious devices that draw power unbeknownst to you.

Imperial Rug

We posted this way back in 2005, and if you’ve searched our archives, you know that updates are often needed. This rug by Nauris Kalinauskas is perfect for anyone that likes mixing things up occasionally, as you can interchange the pieces to fit the size and color combination you want. Each set has 10 pieces of the same color, so you can combine multiple sets to find your own unique color pattern.

Pia Layered Pendant

If you’re on a tight budget, check out this layered light. At 14″ by 32″ high, it’s big enough to hold its own over a dining area yet the price ($68) won’t put a big dent in your wallet. I like how it feels organic in a Boontje-esque way.

How. cute. are. these. For real, at these prices, I’m seriously thinking I could find a spot for one somewhere in our kid-less abode. They’re just too darn adorable.

Rose Line Table Lamp

Here’s a surprisingly affordable table lamp from CB2. It’s got that minimal/luxe look with a white linen shade and a handblown glass cylinder base. The red cloth cord is a nice detail too.

SeR+ collection

Using only surplus yarns, each of these rugs by Alicia D. Keshshian is tied in a traditional Tibetan knot and GoodWeave certified. There’s a few different color ways available in each of the different styles, but keep in mind that most sizes are around 24″x36″. All rugs are zero waste.

Real Time analog digital clock

If you’ve got $1,275 to spend, listen up. Dutch designer Maarten Baas‘ Real Time exhibition in Milan this past April is now on Blu-Ray*. That’s right, you can now own a 12 hour long movie in which a performer acts out the motion of a digital clock by painting over and wiping off panels of a glass screen.

Check out these intricate hand cut maps by studiokmo over on Etsy. There’s several cities to choose from, in either white or color, and if you can’t quite afford the larger versions, don’t fret because there’s smaller sizes available (shown below).

Cast Iron Fire Bowl

We featured this fire bowl way back in ’08, but now that it has a Stainless Grill top option, it’s pretty much the perfect thing for these early fall evening dinners… or S’mores, of course.

Triangle Tea Towel

I’ve stated my love for tea towels before, and this triangle drawing has me itching to ‘add to cart’. Also, check out the Triangle Pillow ($45) with the same design on natural linen.

Original drawing of triangles in an indigo blue ink on 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton fabric.

DBA Pen

Maybe you’ve seen this already, maybe you haven’t. Either way, it’s still the only 98% biodegradable pen in the world. The body is composed of bio-plastic, the ink reservoir from biodegradable fiber, and the ink itself is ACMI certified non-toxic. Not enough for you? Well, it’s also produced at a wind-powered facility in the US, so that should be enough to impress.

Designed to decompose in a compost facility within 180 days.

Wine Cork Stoppers and Pourer

I love these new Wine Cork stoppers designed by Aurélien Barbry. The Wine Pourer (right) is pretty clever too, as its top ensures a proper seal. With more and more wineries choosing screw tops over cork stoppers, these will at least keep some of that traditional feel alive.
