ACCESSORIES

Steel Bookends

Bookends need not be fancy. Case in point, these utilitarian steel bookends from BOOK/SHOP. Perhaps they have the slightest flair with their “sporty side flanges” but really, those aren’t frilly or even close to fancy, they’re sporty, as the retailer states. Available in 3 powder-coated colors; Dark Grey, Light Grey, and Yellow.

Palm Coat Rack

If minimal is your middle name, then this coat rack from Eastvold Furniture might be just the thing for your entry way. No floor space is required; the set of three aluminum bars attach to the wall allowing for coats and bags to be hung from the bend at the top. Here’s where the minimal comes in- one bar has a “palm” wood shelf (measuring 13″W x 5.5D”) for keys, phone, wallet, etc… if your pockets won’t overwhelm that, then you’re good to go. Sold as a set, and custom lengths are available upon request.

Juuri Storage Jars

These are some of the nicest storage jars that I’ve ever seen. Each glass container has a flexible silicone collar that ensures an air-tight seal. While they’re intended for functional kitchen storage, you could easily use them wherever you need a container, say, for organizing desk items or jewelry.

SSB-1 bookcase

No matter that ereaders have most people eschewing physical books, some of us will always need plenty of tomes around us. And, for the current or special collection, what better way to display than this bookcase (or stand, as some would call it). Inspired by the Bruno Matthson Book Crib, the SSB-1 can be used alone or in multiples for a seamless-looking row. It ships flat and slots together, though don’t go thinking it’s low quality- each one is cut and trimmed by hand to make sure it’s an exact fit.

Izola Letter Opener

Combine a letter opener with a ruler? Sure, why not? Made from brass-plated alloy, one side has centimeter metrics with the slogan, ‘Follow the rules.’ The other side has inch metrics with the slogan, ‘Break the rules.’ Actually, it looks like that’s opposite from the image shown, so be prepared for a flip flop of slogans. Regardless, it’s always nice to see one tool with multiple functions.

Toolbox by Arik Levy

Sure, we can hope to organize everything perfectly in neat stacks in drawers and other appropriate places, but sometimes it’s easier to just chuck it into a box, or even better, a toolbox. Store your scissors, tape, rulers, or whatever else you like to keep on hand in this open toolbox and move it from desk to worktable and back again with little fuss. Lots of colors to choose from too.

Leather Strap Cutting Boards

These wooden cutting boards are nice enough to display on a wall in your kitchen, and that will be easy to arrange as they have leather straps for exactly that purpose. Keep in mind that the larger the board, the higher the price, and the more you spend the more you’ll want to keep that board looking good with appropriate cutting board oil (such as BCM&T oil).

Leaf-it Ivy

Ooo, there’s an ivy option for the Leaf-it sticky memo pads. So now when you’ve got a bajillion things to remember, your workspace will be covered in paper ivy instead of just looking like a cluttered mess… well, it still might look cluttered, but it will at least look more natural.

WC Line

Oh, the glamourous world of bath sets. Out of the many available in the marketplace, this is one of the least offensive, and dare I say, even pleasant to look at. Durable silicone combined with sturdy wood is quite practical, and, of course, makes it completely obvious as to their cleaning/storing function. The set ($125) includes a plunger, toilet brush and waste bin, or you can purchase items individually ($45-$55). Take your pick from Black, White, Red, Blue, and Orange.

Facet Doormat

Do you find doormats depressing? Fancy some facets? This 100% natural coir doormat will cheer you up straight away; it’s made with environmentally sensitive dyes and is fade resistant. And, if you’re looking for similarly angular planters to complement your new doormat, perhaps you should consider the Element or Geo planters.

Book Tray

Corral your current books, magazines, and miscellany on this tray that doubles as a charging station. Space under the tray allows cables to be hidden yet accessible while the metal bookends can be adjusted to suit your collection. The Book Tray would be entirely useful for a desk top or perhaps even a shelf in a high traffic area of your home/office.

The Universe and The Galaxy

There’s nothing like a few space prints to make you look like a complete nerd smartypants, and I’d vote for these two by Mike Gottschalk. They’re inexpensive and impressive with just enough text to put things in perspective. (Pretty perfect for those of us not afraid of being nerds.) These prints are also available framed or on stretched canvases, fyi.

Pony Planters

Despite this planter feeling a little or a lot like an elongated tin can, it offers a great versatile option for adding greenery to your porch, patio or balcony. Stack the large and small planters as you wish to fit your space perfectly, or space them apart to add spots of color to a larger outdoor area.

If you have a tree where a swing would work and 150 bucks lying around*, what are you waiting for?

This handcrafted swing by Dzierlenga F+U is made from local cedar in upstate NY and can be personalized with a message, name, or initals. Talk about a great housewarming gift, eh?
