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.

PD2 Floor Lamp

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll remember the PD4 ABC Table Lamp posted a couple of weeks ago. This is the bigger floor lamp version, so, of course, it’ll cost you quite a bit more, but let’s focus on its beauty, shall we? The base of this lamp collection was inspired by the vaulted ceilings of the famous building “La Pedrera”, also known as Casa Milà, while the lampshades were influenced by the unique, perforated detail of the chimneys.
