Argard M10 Bluetooth Headset

Look at this tiny little headset! No wires, no clips. It’s less than the size of a quarter, and it’s so much better than the crazy-big-behind-the-ear ones that so many people wear even when they aren’t talking on their phones. Be slightly less obvious with this new gadget…

“…it doesn’t require a behind the ear clip, mainly because its unique shape ‘sticks’ in the ear… You put it on with one turning movement (yes, somewhat like a screw) and it just stays in your ear. And it obviously comes with three different sized silicone covers to adjust it to your earsize…”

Gauge Poster by Marten Lindquist

Will we get hatemail for posting this on the 4th of July? I promise, no political statement is intended, I just think this is a clever play on a familiar graphic. Perhaps a few of you will agree.

“Marten Lindquist won the international Brushstokes competition with this brilliant graphic. We have a few of the posters, printed in Sweden, from a limited edition of 200, signed and numbered by Marten. In addition, we sourced some brilliant black (to match the poster) posterhangers, an ingenious invention from Denmark, so you can buy the poster and solve the perennial problem of how to hang it (framing is so expensive, and Bluetack so…tacky).”

Size: 27.7″ w x 19.5″ t

Phone/PDA Charging Station

A charging station that actually looks good? For real, it’s true. Stations that house and charge our electronic appendages cut down on many unsightly cords that get tangled easily, and makes it ever so much easier to find the phone, camera, ipod, etc. So, hurray for one that does no harm to your aesthetic environment.

“You can corral up to three items and neatly tuck a 10” power strip out of sight behind the sliding door. No room on your desktop for the 13″ long Charging Station? You can also mount it to the wall as easily as a clock with two dry wall screws (included).”

Available in black or navy.

13”L x 3.75”W x 5”H

B-set dinner service by Hella Jongerius

“Hella Jongerius turns imperfections into ideals with the B-set dinner service. Each piece is fired in an overheated kiln to slightly warp the porcelain into uniquely distorted shapes. The result is a curiously charming dinner-set, unified by its consistent inconsistencies.
The porcelain and glaze recipes used are stamped on the side of each item as a tribute to the ceramics recipe culture.”

Beaker small: 3″Ø x 2.5″H
Beaker large: 3″Ø x 4.5″H
Bowl small: 4.75″Ø x 3.5″H

Britt Floating Nightstand

Wall-mounting bamboo nightstand. Also can be used as an entry way table or hung in multiples.

“All bamboo used in modernlink furniture is farm harvested and sustainable. Comes in “Baked” or “Raw” finish. Raw is the color of bamboo unadorned, leaving the surface as it would be naturally. The baked finish is achieved by literally toasting raw bamboo at high temperatures browning the silica in the bamboo naturally.”

Take Away Bird Feeder by Eva Solo

If you like our feathered friends, you might also like this lovely glass bird feeder. Very simple and elegant (as far as birdfeeders go), this looks like it would blend in nicely with any outdoor environment.

“This bird feeder is made from mouth-blown glass and designed to withstand wind, weather and beating wings. The ball can easily be suspended from bushes, trees and the eaves of your house – and filling it with seed and other natural products is extremely straightforward.”

Jorine Oosterhoff Mad Hatter Bowls

While you might not have the disposable income to afford these pieces, you might know someone that does, and that someone might be less grumpy during teatime if they owned one or two of these to hold their snacks.

“With experimental forms and avant-garde design, these progressive and playful pieces are sure to inspire an afternoon of tea and delectable goodies. As the designer herself describes, ‘My products become characters, like individual things that seem to live their own life. They have their own identity and personality. Sometimes they seem to come from a fairytale-world. Products making us feel like being in a different world.'”

Unglazed porcelain on the outside, glazed inside.

Gun Earrings

I know, I know, guns aren’t considered the most neutral of topics, but I do like them in earring form.

“These earrings are toy versions of the AK47, a rather famous automatic rifle. Swords to ploughshares? Ironic comment on gun culture? Self defence for earlobes? You decide….”

Twinkle Living Shadowlands Rug

This rug is lovely- the organic shapes next to pixel-like squares add an interesting twist to an otherwise simple graphic rug.
