ACCESSORIES

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.

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?

Cloth Extension Cord

Perhaps you’d like a little of the old fashioned feel in your extension cords? If so, Best Made Company has it covered, literally. Their cloth covered extension cords aren’t meant to be hidden, so if you’ve got an unavoidable spot where a cord shows (and it bothers you), this would be a good option. The cords are “woven in Massachusetts using three copper wires, each stranded and covered in PVC insulation.”

Petri Dish with Dome Cloche

Oh, how to display your precious objects? Or tiny plants? Those special collectibles and/or living specimens can now live protected in a small glass petri dish under a similarly smallish glass dome. Fact: objects in glass domes make you look smart, unlike just petri dishes, which, if you left lying around, would make people think you’re really weird, or a scientist.

Earth Blocks

These blocks are a bit odd- sort of like a concession between a kid (“I want legos!”) and an interior designer (“No, they’re too colorful!”). Don’t go getting ideas though- replacing a child’s toy blocks with tree bark and tea leaves- that’s what these blocks are made of- is bordering on plain meanness. However, these blocks could be an interesting decorative accent for an eclectic interior.

World Map (Black)

Sure, a world map is okay wall art, especially as you can try to absorb something while you’re staring off into space not working, but what about a black world map, that will look even better once you add your own scribbles and notes to it? That would be pretty cool, and a very excellent way to chart your travels around the world.

Flour Sack Towels

More tea towels! Except this time you have your pick between black, orange, or grey sets of three, with each towel having a “terrific typographic timbre” to add to your kitchen. I made things complicated by selecting one towel from each set for the main image, but I’m sure you’ll be satisfied with just one set. Right? (Also, House Industries: well done on the copy for these towels. Entertaining.)

One45 Wall Clock

Perhaps this would be a not-so-subtle reminder to be on time, either for yourself or for a loved one (because at that price you aren’t going to buy it for a coworker). At almost 18 inches wide, it would be hard to ignore, and with convex glass and a slim appearance, it is definitely easy to admire.
