Bookscapes

What, there’s a functional sculpture that displays your favorite books and I’m not going to tell you about it? Please. These ‘functional sculptures’ aren’t cheap, but they are quite special if you have some very special tomes. Mountains holds an open book, so that you may peruse the pages slowly. Peaks intends to show off a book’s cover, or one cover and several spines, if you so wish. Waves has blackened steel upright dividers to mark your place in your smaller novels and other current readings.

Keep Track

This coat rack and shelving system has a sleek sensibility. Metal pieces slide into and along a channel cut into a solid block of alder wood, letting you adjust and change the pieces as you see fit. The larger piece can be flipped up to use as a mail holder or kept level for use as a small shelf. Use the smaller metal pieces as hooks for scarves, bags, and hats. Maybe you’ll use it in the entryway or office?

2017 Sunlight Calendar

Another calendar for your consideration… this one subtly shifts tones from one month to the next, signaling seasonal changes with a “haze of hues.” Pretty, right? Inspired by the sun’s height and intensity, the year is laid out with intuitive color. Don’t worry, the cold winter months are pretty too, perhaps sometimes in direct contradiction with what you may feel when you step outdoors.

Patina Bottle Opener

A beautiful bottle opener? In this case, it’s true. Cofield’s bottle openers are solid brass with three available patina finishes. A polished edge sets off the patina nicely, and somewhat gives an illusion of inset stone. Now, the hard part will be deciding which patina you prefer- do you like the Polychrome, Turquoise, or Black best? Be sure to take a look at Cofield’s Brass Clocks too, which have the same patina treatment.

Round Silicone Lids

These silicone lids will make leftovers a snap. Just stick them on any sheet, pan, or bowl, and you’re done- no separate container necessary. That’s music to anyone’s ears, but especially to those of us with a slight case of lazybones around the holidays. They also keep food hot (a small one for your coffee, perhaps?), or can stand in as the top of a saucepan. Get them for yourself, or as a ‘happy holidays’ sort of host/hostess gift. Also available in a rectangular shape.

O Corkscrew

Simplicity at its best, designer Athanasios Babalis reimagined the corkscrew to sidestep all the extraneous design elements in favor of pure function and form. The O Corkscrew requires only a twist and pull. The bronze and stainless steel will look right at home next to all your fancy bottles of wine and holiday fare, so feel free to leave it out to make imbibing that much easier, and possibly more delightful.

SuperYR Calendar by Supergraph

However will you keep track of your daily habits in the new year? Well, get this big SuperYR Calendar by Supergraph, as then you’d be able to cross off each and every day that you complete your task.
