ACCESSORIES

Cold Picnic Knit Blanket

Who else wants a warm, knit blanket with abstract art patterns? It’ll keep our toes warm and our eyes happy, as the colors and composition agree with our aesthetic sensibilities. And, as you’d expect, it being Cold Picnic, there’s the Tonal Boob Knit Blanket to coordinate with their Boob Bath Mat. Cold Picnic’s quilts are impressive as well, but deserve to be featured separately (perhaps next week).

You’re sure to cheer up with the 100% cotton throws, especially since their crazy, vivid shapes and patterns are visual statements of general well-being and positivity.

Nood Lamp

Uh, whaaaat? Tell me you’re not tempted to buy a bunch of these semi-insane Nood Lamps, because then I won’t want to snap every single one up for myself. They’re made of cast porcelain, with a good jolt of crazy color/pattern to wake up any dull corner. You won’t be accused of being boring with one of these guys in your house, that’s for sure.

Chip Hook

Look close at the Chip Hook and you’ll see that it’s made from wood fiber and polypropylene. Probably why it’s named ‘chip,’ right?

Three different sizes and three different colors give you the option to create just the right hook arrangement to fit your dressing area or entryway.
