ACCESSORIES

Stainless Steel cup/carafe Set

Similar in usage to the French Stacking Carafe, this Stainless Steel Carafe set has cups that stack and nest within the mouth, allowing for easy transport to and from the table. However, unlike the glass of the French Carafe, this 1 litre double-walled carafe will keep your drinks at the temperature you want- hot or cold.

Pebble Eraser

As you use this ‘edgy’ eraser, it becomes rounder like a pebble. The many edges give you a sharper point to erase, making it easier to use than normal erasers.

Available in 3 colors.

Box for the Birds

We’ve featured a few birdhouses before, but this will be the first one where you will get the satisfaction of putting it together yourself. No tools are needed either, it snaps (and unsnaps) together in about a minute. Great for kids or ones not so confident in their hand skills.

Measures 10.5″h x 8.5″w x 9.35″d when assembled.

Loop Light by Voon Wong and Benson Saw

Something about this light looks like sex incarnate. Maybe it’s the sleek stainless steel finish or maybe it’s because it reminds me of that Hussein Chalayan hat – the one that sucks the girl’s dress up into it. See the video at Style.com and skip to 4:24. I’m no male chauvinist, but some people might consider that better living through design.

Also available in nickel-painted steel.
19.7 x 6.7 inches

Do you have an extra extension cord lying around? If so, you could make a lamp with this kit. You simply snap the two pieces of the lamp together, insert bulb unit, and then wrap the cord around the lamp using the guide cut outs, and voilà! You have yourself a coil lamp.

Food Map Container

What looks like a small bath tub on wheels is a growing space for an edible garden. It features a special contoured base that drains water quickly and evenly to prevent plants from over-soaking, but also has a central reservoir where a small amount of water collects to keep the soil moist longer. Comes in a Short or Tall configuration, and is priced at $150 and $160 respectively.

Manufactured in Los Angeles County.

Goccia Suspension Light

Whoa, take a look at the different color choices for this light. No surprise it was inspired by the colors found underwater, as it reflects and diffuses a wide range of each hue. Made from Opalflex®, which is a recyclable material.

Geo Planters

I really love these hand-cast planters by Kelly Lamb. It’s quite an interesting mix of materials and textures; they’re cast in concrete for an industrial feel but have a smooth finish to go well in interiors, and of course adding in plants gives it the final touch. Available in small and large sizes, priced at $80 and $125.

Small Geo Planter: 9.5″ diameter, 8lbs
Large Geo Planter: 15″ diameter, 25lbs

Looking Glass Decanter

While this upside down decanter is quite expensive, it would be terribly fun to use. Inspired by the stories of “Alice in Wonderland”, it magnifies and distorts the things seen through it. Chances are that it would be partly used as a decanter and partly a display object, because why in the world would anyone hide something like this in the cabinet?

Hand made in borosilicate glass.
Available as a numbered sequential edition.
