Hang On Easy Diffuser

You’ve no excuse for bare bulbs, especially after being reminded that Droog has this shade. In a few seconds, cover your bare bulb with the Hang On Easy Diffuser and then step back and bask in the soft glow of your lovely new light source. This was one of the earlier posts (c. 2006?) here on BLTD, and it’s nice to see that it remains such an easy and elegant solution.

Doodle Tablecloth

Don’t go thinking this tablecloth is just for kids- it would be just as fun at a dinner party or outdoor cookout. After you scribble and scrawl your masterpiece or menu and your guests/family have had their fill of fabric markers, throw the tablecloth into the washer and you’ll soon have a blank canvas for your next event.

Tokyo Lamp I & II

Who is this little guy and where did he come from? The Tokyo lamp is from Misewell, and, as said earlier, Misewell can do no wrong when it comes to furniture and accessories. Little lamps are great fits for smaller tables, and as you can see from the picture below, it would complement the Grain Desk quite nicely. The shade pivots and the neck can be adjusted to give the right stance.

Fredericks & Mae Kites

Let’s go fly a kite, up to the highest height… How long has it been since you flew a kite? Years? Decades? Change that answer to ‘days’ by considering one of these kites by Fredericks & Mae, or, if $64 is a bit too high for your taste, make your own.

Better Stuff Doormat

This natural coir doormat will be a perfect place to clean off muddy or sandy shoes. Now, whether or not it actually deters or redirects burglars from your own front door, that’s a risk you’d best mitigate with other methods (alarm system, booby traps, etc.).

Wardrope

It’s officially summer, so there’s minimal jackets and scarves lying around, but what about all those hats and bags strewn about your front door? Consider this simple rope structure: you’re able to position the hooks freely, and when you hang an object the hooks lock into place. The polymide rope is usually used for mountain climbing, so rest assured that it will safely hold up to 30 lbs. of whatever you need to hang, all while taking up minimal space.
