Merican Dream Mug

How’s your Merican dream doing? It may or may not be doing great, due to the current political situation, but perhaps you could use a little reminding that certain opportunities and dreams are still possible here in the good ol’ US of A. Remembering that along with your morning cup of coffee/tea everyday might do you some good. The Merican Doormat is still available too, fyi.

Menu Grow Pot with Wooden Board

More plant-related paraphernalia for you, but this time the item on show is specifically for the herbs or flowers kept indoors on a windowsill. Set off by an oak plank base, the dark terra cotta planter pot will contrast nicely with a small bouquet or your favorite herbs or sprouts without disrupting the clean/minimal vibe you’ve got going on in the rest of your house. Set your Japanese garden scissors (or other elegant clippers) beside the pot for easy trimming and a casual oh-I-use-fresh-herbs-so-often-I-need-scissors-out-all-the-time sort of look.

Polo Table Lamp

An articulated task lamp is essential if you’re at your desk in the early morning or very late at night, though let’s hope you’re not working too hard. Check out the Polo Table Lamp, with its small footprint and long, skinny arms. Three joints allow for precise illumination and smooth movement, both a must when you’re in a work zone. A succinct shade takes up little visual space, allowing for a minimal vibe that fits your workspace perfectly.

Trays from Kalon

Need a few nice wooden trays for snacks and drinks and such? Turn your eyes toward Kalon’s set of trays, in either bamboo or black walnut. They’re nice enough that they could venture out of the eating areas and into the living zone- perhaps to keep your pocket contents corralled or your reading stack organized?

Twin Carafe

This double-walled carafe is just about as simple as it gets. For coffee, use the center of the lid as a pour over set. Not big on coffee? The lid’s ridged edge filters loose-leaf tea. Pretty smart that the lid works for both, right? Without the lid, the glass carafe works overtime to hold water, juice, or maybe even (if you’re feeling nice) flowers.
