Brick Lamp

Maybe you’re a no-nonsense sort of person, and if so, maybe you’d like the Brick Lamp by Philippe Malouin. It’s a task light, that’s for sure, but it’s reduced down to the bare essentials. The aluminum light rod (with LEDs) may be moved by shifting/poking it through the holes of the concrete “brick” base. Would this fit within the industrial aesthetic arena? Yes, indeed. The Brick Lamp will provide a visual weight (and physical heft) to your work area.

Avva Small Tumblers

Any self-respecting whiskey drinker isn’t going to pour their water of life into any ol’ glass… unless the circumstances are quite dire, and then, of course, it is permissible to drink directly from the bottle. On normal and/or celebratory evenings, be sure to treat your whiskey well by drinking it from a receptacle like these mouth-blown, non-lead crystal glasses. One nests inside the other for storage, and, as you may have guessed, their shapes enhance the body of your beverage.

Brass Towel Hanger and Toilet Paper Holder

Towel rings and toilet paper holders… yawn. Those two things are perhaps the least exciting items in a bathroom and possibly the hardest to find for any discerning modernist. Now, considering there are several nice brass home accessories available nowadays from respectable retailers, we shouldn’t be too surprised to find that Ferm Living has these two options available. Solid brass combined with oak wood does the job without getting in the way of a quiet, minimal look.

Above Home Floor Mat

You might see simple, graphic squares adorning these woven mats, but these images are stylized patterns of backyards and swimming pools as seen from above. Made of abaca, an odor and moisture resistant natural plant fiber, and designed by Icelandic-born designer Hlynur Atlason, the Above Home Floor Mat gives you a place to wipe your feet along with a little rectangle of conceptual outdoor space.

9.9.2 Box : Tray

What’s the big deal about a walnut tray? Well, if you own anything, you know that little things tend to multiply, and it helps to have a tray handy to corral important things together. For instance, in the living area, a tray, such as the 9.9.2 Box you see above, would be an ideal spot to hold magazines and those unsightly TV remotes. In the kitchen, a tray would make a short job of setting the table- you can carry an armload’s worth of stuff safely to and fro. Use one in the office for an important stack of papers or in the bedroom for a safe spot for your phone, keys, and other pocket contents. The 9.9.2 Box : Tray is handmade from solid four quarter American black walnut. Check out OnOurTable to see more of their Box Collection, as various sizes (some with lids) are available.

You might have liked the Cuppow Mason Jar Lid, but what about the reCAP Mason Jar Pour Cap? It goes a step further by providing a spill-proof option for a Mason jar, allowing you to store dry goods, syrups, dressings, or, yes, even tote around your favorite beverage.

Starry Light by Anagraphic

If you’re fond of constellations, then you’ll like this Starry Light by Anagraphic. The hemispheric shade lends itself to a pattern of the Northern Hemisphere’s two equinoxes and solstices and a LED light fixture projects most of its light downwards, with just enough residual light to bring out the stars on your walls. Also, as the lamp is manufactured by hand, you may customize the light to a specific date, time and geographical location.

Hot Kettle

Not that you need the warning, but this kettle gets HOT. The stainless steel body and handle have a distinct industrial vibe and its two red buttons safely release steam and hot water. Designed by Selab + Alessandro Zambelli for Seletti, it’ll heat your water up safely and efficiently. (Note: boiling water in a pan for tea or coffee is sad. Get a kettle.)

Holmes Sconce

It doesn’t take much deductive reasoning to select this Holmes Sconce from Schoolhouse Electric as one of the better options in the marketplace. It might be inspired by the classic candle sconce in the days before electricity, but the minimalist lines in its steel backplate marks it firmly in the present. Make it your own by choosing a specialty bulb, and know that the smaller size would fit almost anywhere you need an extra source of light.

Animal Boxes

A couple of years ago I saw a few of these Animal boxes by Karl Zahn lined up along a windowsill in someone’s home, and it struck me how it would be a thoughtful tradition to give one each year as a gift for a friend or loved one. Each box represents a “power” animal, a sort of totem for one’s ambitions. Plus, there’s just enough room inside for something small and special should you decide to take the gift a step further.
