Collapsible Pack-Away Bucket

Never underestimate the need for a bucket. Whether it saves the day in the laundry, kitchen, bathroom, or garden, it’s one of the handiest things to have around. Now, add to the ubiquitous bucket this one particular function: collapsibility. Suddenly it’s much easier to stash in the smallest of places, and have one at hand whenever the need appears.

GINO Glass Dripper

Here’s an elegant little coffee dripper that fits directly onto your cup. Made from borosilicate glass, it’s heat and scratch resistant. The dripper has double-walled construction that insulates, and the angle of the cone’s wall and the size of the bottom holes are engineered for an optimal extraction for perfectly brewed coffee. Brew for one or use the Gino Server for two or more.

SAIC Origin Cuatro Platters

Platters with grids will bring out the best of your OCD, or at least that’s what we’ll hope. SAIC student Allison Rokusek uses various fine-lined grids for the design of these porcelain platters, as she believes grids “help section the world into more digestable pieces.” Makes sense, doesn’t it?

Neon Light by Minimalux

Have your own Dan Flavin-esque light sculpture by getting one of these Neon Lights designed by London based MINIMALUX. A bright, radiant glow is made visible from the colorful interiors of a folded steel box, giving off the impression of neon strip lights. Group several together for a bigger lighting statement or just pick one for a quieter glow.

Fragment Cushions

Does anyone else feel like it’s hard to find the right sort of accent pillow? You don’t want anything too wacky, and sometimes a solid block of color seems too safe (and a little boring). Perhaps some might sort these Fragment Cushions from Ferm Living into the wacky pile, but I think they’re fun, and have a bolder color scheme that would inject a good bit of pattern into an otherwise ho-hum room.

Prism Steel Chiminea

If you’re going to have a chimney, it might as well be a geometric, prism-like one. Raw, hand-welded steel will develop a patina (that’s a nice word for rust, by the way) over time and the chimney is removable for cleaning.

Dot Wall Light

There’s nothing complicated about the Dot Light from Lambert & Fils; it’s just a handmade brass disc with plenty of nylon wire to hardwire it onto a wall (or specify a rocker switch and plug). However, the size of the circular base makes the warm reflection of the bulb more visible and entirely more elegant (in a subtle Hollywood glamour sort of way).

Sucabaruca Memphis “Pop” Coffee Service

You better act fast if this coffe service set makes your heart beat faster, as only 10 editions exist. That kind of limited availability halfway explains the price, and once you add in the vibrant, hand mixed color pigments, it makes complete sense. Made by porcelain artist Alissa Coe, the set includes a wood gift box and a small book about the production process of Sucabaruca.

Tribeca Franklin Chandelier

A little brass, a dash of branch-like design… put them together and it’s enough to make you want to assemble your own Adelman Chandelier. However, if putting together a semi-complicated light isn’t your thing, then, not to worry, Søren Rose Studio will hook you up with the Tribeca series, or, more specifically, the Tribeca Franklin Chandelier. Retro-chic? Certainly. A lighting statement? Most definitely. Also be sure to take a look at the Tribeca Leonard Chandelier, the Tribeca Reade Table Lamp, and the Warren Wall Lamp.

Coat Hanger by Norm Architects

Another coat hanger? You might think this is an intervention for your messy hallway, but really, it’s just because the weather is so cold and wet out there, that I can’t help but show hooks and hangers for you to hang your hat (and coat). The Coat Hanger by Norm Architects is slightly different from the others featured recently; it’s a long, vertical rod attached to the wall with one hook and two levels for your shoes/bag and other small sundries. Think of it as your very own private and inanimate butler, for you and you alone, to last until the robots fill the job. Perhaps it’s perfect for your office as well?

Nest Office Caddy

Hmm, this little office caddy has caught my eye with its simple compartments for those small(ish) desk essentials. However, it’s not just for paperclips and rubber bands; stack a few for extra storage or use the steel frame as a stand for your phone or tablet. The frame may also be used as a handle if you tend to move around your home or office to work.

Book Binder

Hmm, here’s something different in the world of bookends. Instead of two separate stand-alone ends, this book binder has an elastic band to hold the books together. The flexibility of the band allows you to remove or add books as you like without them tumbling over and also makes it possible for the stack to be freestanding wherever you wish.

Marina Mirror Rack

Here’s an oak coatrack to ease your entryway woes. Where to hang your bags and coats? Three steel hooks off to the left take care of that. Where to check your face before you leave the house? In the generously sized two-foot diameter mirror, that’s where. That’s plenty of space to make sure you look somewhat presentable, especially in a spatially challenged area like an entry hall.

Houses Throw by Alyson Fox

Need another throw to keep your toes warm? This one is a good choice, as it’s made of 100% baby Alpaca Jacquard (by a socially sustainable collective in Peru, no less) and has a hand embroidered pattern by Alyson Fox. Yes, you’ve probably heard of Alyson Fox and, yes, you probably love her just as much as everyone else. Maybe you’ve seen her rug designs or maybe you’ve run across images of her house via Freunde von Freunden, either way, there’s no arguing she’s got talent.

OK Lamp

You know what’s cool? A floor to ceiling LED light designed by none other than Konstantin Grcic. I swear, I want everything he’s designed, and this ultra-flat light disk hung from a wire is currently at the top of my list (if only I had a place to put it). The light is directable over 360 degrees, so use it as a reading light in the living or bedroom, or just hang it in a corner for an ambient light source. A cone-shaped counterweight keeps it in place.
