A while ago someone wrote in enquiring after modern Lazy Susans, and here we are, months after the initial request with a smacker of an option.

See the Lazy Suzi in action or read more about Lazy Susans in general over at SUITE New York.

Stick-Up Monthly Planner

If you had one of these Stick-Up Monthly Planners you could keep better track of certain events like Mother’s Day in the UK this Sunday (Mother’s Day in the US is May 11, sorry if my post yesterday confused you). And, in true Poketo style, the planner is open dated so you can use it whenever you wish. In busy months, write down important events and stick the page on a mirror or wall so you won’t forget. And, of course, there’s always the Stick-Up Weekly Calendar ($10) if you need more detail.

Thin Light

How’s this for an elegant task light? The Thin Light by designer Peter Bristol can stretch out to about three feet across a desk, yet when folded only takes up a minimal vertical space. A ball joint at the base allows for multi directional movement and 33 high-powered dimmable LEDs produce over 500 lumens- that’s enough for an even, warm white light.

Fender Floor Lamp

Some of the most interesting interiors have a mix of modern and traditional elements, which is why some of us are always drawn towards pieces with a sense of history. After seeing the price on this Fender Floor Lamp from Wilkos Electric, I certainly was sold; I think it will live next to one of my more modern armchairs. Each Fender is individually handcrafted by Maciek Wilkos in his Montréal-based workshop and can be customized to suit your space.

Fading Mirror

Feeling a little hazy? That’s understandable if you’re gazing into this Fading Mirror by Amsterdam designer Thomas Eurlings, as it has a printed gradient under the glass to give a soft reflection. The smoke-like edging will give you a dreamy, floating image whenever you should happen to pass by… and, good news, it won’t break the bank.

M Lamp

This little guy looks like he needs to star in a Pixar film, doesn’t he? Inspired by the archetypal miner’s lamps of 19th century, the M Lamp is powered by a rechargeable Lithium long-life battery, and if you’re asking how long is ‘long-life’ you’ll be happy to know that it is rated to “to last 50,000 hours, for up to 2,000 charging cycles with no loss in performance.” Is that impressive, or what? A handle makes the M Lamp very portable, so you can move it around the home whenever you need an extra light.

Heavy-duty Steel Spade, Shovel, Fork

If you’re planning on digging in the dirt to plant new flowers and such, you’d better have the right tools to minimize any aching backs. Longer handles will help with that, just like you see with this set available from Kaufmann Mercantile. Fabricated from airplane-quality steel for strength, each tool is handmade one at a time in the same factory since 1964 in New Jersey.

Fatboy Picnic Lounge

Yes, the large tag on this Fatboy Picnic Lounge is a little obnoxious, but it’s also a little pouch for your keys, phone, etc. so you don’t lose them at the beach or park (or backyard?). Maybe we’ll just tuck it under the lounge rug so it doesn’t distract us and/or others from all the fun we’ll be having. Four giant pins, a hole in the middle for a sunshade, and an included brush make this Picnic Lounge perfect for a sunny day outdoors. And, when the day is done, roll it up and carry it home with its specially designed strap.

Chikuno Cube House

The above photo initially baffled me, as I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking at. The honeycomb structure is what caused the confusion, as the Chikuno Cube is normally shown as a black, charcoal cube, and its honeycomb composition is not usually highlighted. If you’re not familiar, the Chikuno Cube is made of activated bamboo charcoal and clay, and with tiny air pockets, the cube absorbs odor; to “recharge” the cube, just set it in direct sunlight for a few hours. The simple wood base gives the cube a home, allowing it to make sense amongst your other things in your closet or bathroom. And, yes, $68 is quite a bit of money to spend on a air freshener, however, I’d argue it’s a much better alternative (both in function and in the looks department) to some of your other choices*.

Modfire vs. Target

Ouch. It physically pains me to see blatant rip-offs*. On the left, you have Modfire’s Urbanfire; on the right, Target’s recent Threshold™ Chiminea. Notice that trademark symbol? Not cool. For more information, visit Modfire’s facebook page.

Flourish Paper Table Runner

You’ve got guests coming over for dinner, but your dining table is looking oh-so-sad and very unadorned, and you’ve not much money to dress it up with a fancy tablecloth. Tablecloths are a bother, anyway, as they need to be laundered and pressed after each use. So, what to do? How about adding some ‘flourish’ with a paper table runner? An ornate black scroll will dress up your tabletop while the kraft paper says ‘Hey, I’m not trying too hard.’ It’s long enough for around 4 separate lengths of an average sized table.

Minim Playing Cards

How minimal can you get? Turns out you can go super minimal even when it comes to your playing cards. The Minim Playing Cards by Joe Doucet are regulation playing cards that reduce hearts, clubs, diamonds, and spades to their simplest geometric forms. A diagonal line marks the back.

What is it?

Hmm, what in the world could this small, ramp-like item be? It’s made from natural cork and is about the size of a medium sized notepad (for lack of a better comparison). Any guesses? Pay attention to the incline, ribbing, and bumper at the end… would you be able to store, say, longer, flat things on it somehow?
