Black Lace Bowl

I’m a sucker for old ideas reinterpreted with modern processes, and here’s another great example.

“Handcrafted using advanced metal processing technologies, this bowl is inspired by vintage Eastern European lace handkerchiefs collected in antique shops in Israel. Uniquely shaped and structured, each piece is a one-of-a-kind creation and can be used for serving or decoration. Stainless steel. Hand-wash only.”

Urban Cup Holder

It’s not often that a product forays into uncharted territory- yet that’s what this does for the urban setting. Claim that post for your own, I say.

“The aim of the urban cup holder is to encourage people to reinterpret street settings and claim them as their territory, instead of just using them as a means of passage from A to B. The cup holder is easily clamped with one hand to posts in the street, then used as a coat/bag/umbrella hanger and a drink holder. In turn, giving the user a feeling of control and creating a more personal space, a temporary territory.”

Trace Coffee Table

Such a sleek proportioned table; the glass top would certainly help a living space feel more open and light.

“The Trace Table’s glass top sits flush with the table’s meticulously finished steel frame. The visual lightness of the design and beautiful combination of materials makes the table a complement to any space.”

Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp

I love the scale of this floor lamp.

“The Tolomeo design begins with a heavy base and ends with a matte anodized aluminum diffuser that swivels 360 degrees and can be easily turned with a cool-to-the-touch steel handle. In between, the lamp’s dual-arm body adjusts by loosening and tightening the central and bottom joints, and steel tension cables provide infinite positions in which the lamp can be held. The Mega comes with a 17″ parchment shade that reaches far over a sofa or bed.”

Daily Aesthetics Collection

I love this stuff.

“Inspired by some of our favorite food containers, Lekker is pleased to introduce the “Daily Aesthetics” collection by Italian Design House Seletti. From popcorn bags to milk cartons, from plastic cups to canned anchovies, all products are made of porcelain or glass. Instead of throwing it away, you’ll use it again and again. Keeps the environment happy too.”

Poketo Artist Melamine Plates by Ogi (s/2)

Dioscuri Ceiling/Wall Lamp by Michele de Lucchi

We have posted the regular Dioscuri Lamps before, but this is the ceiling/wall version, and I do have to say I’m quite taken with this as an option for above a bathroom mirror.

“this ceiling/wall mounted luminaire produces brilliant incandescent lighting. it is UL listed for wet locations and suitable for indoor and outdoor applications. a minimalist design features a simple globe and a totally hidden support structure. globe diffusers are comprised of etched white hand-blown glass, available in two distinct sizes 25(10″) and 35(14″). even though not normally visible the white mounting plate is made of durable and sleek polycarbonate. the lamp is designed for mounting to standard electrical junction boxes UL approved.”

Atelier Lzc Oval Mirror Houx

Yep, it’s decorative, leaning towards folksy, and it has flowers to boot, but I still think it’s such a find. I think it would contrast quite nicely with modern furniture, pulling out those qualities which become more prominent when put beside their polar opposite (an “eclectic” mix).

Make an anti-watch statement with this very witty bracelet.

“Seifart plays with the trend in which watches are increasingly being used as fashion accessories rather than as a way of telling time. This timeless bracelet is made from stainless steel and has a traditional fold-over clasp.”
