Knitted Pouf from CB2

Finally, an affordable pouf.

I’ve really loved the looks of the poufs from DWR, but at $1600, the cost was prohibitive to say the least. Now CB2 has come out with one in 100% cotton. The bad news: it only comes in the one color. The good news, it’s 100% cotton so it’s ripe for a quick little DIY using either bleach or Rit-dye to suit even the most sophisticated color-palates.

Dimensions
left pouf (CB2): H 14″ Diameter 20″
right poufs (DWR): H 11″ Diameter 24″ (top), H 15″ Diameter 33″ (bottom)

Produce Bags

I live right by a great farmer’s market and I like to use my usual canvas bags when I go, but canvas is sort of bulky and not the best for smaller items. The produce bags bridge the gap between large canvas totes and plastic bags because they’re light and translucent.

Because they’re mesh, you can wash your produce right in the bag; they’ve got color-coded tabs (in a lovely palette), and they’re fully machine washable. Best of all, you get a set of 5 bags (one of each tab color).

Dimensions: 12� x 14″

Price: $11.00 for a set of 5

U Kindle Case by Hard Graft

The whole collection of cases and bags by Hard Graft are simple and just look really sophisticated. The U Kindle case is nice because it’s better than that silly case that comes with the Kindle, and the elastic strap looks like it’s easy to slip the Kindle in and out of it’s case without too much hassle.

Confetti System Pinatas

These are pretty fantastic and festive.–although if I paid $135 for a piñata I wouldn’t want anyone to destroy it with a stick. These might be nice for a birthday or the upcoming holidays as decor.

Helvetica/Avant Garde Necklaces

These typeface necklaces remind me a little of these, obviously due to the same material and construction method. These are super cute and would be a nice gift for your favorite graphic designer friend for the upcoming holidays.

I’m way into Avant Garde and Herb Lubalin and his collaboration with Ralph Ginzburg, Avant Garde Magazine, for which the font was created.

Wow, if you’re planning a bath remodel or working on one currently, have I got a deal for you. This awesome sink is 50% off at DWR. I love this sink and it hurts me that it would be perfect for my dream house but not so much my current house or else I’d snap this up in a second.

This sink is intended for wall mounted faucets, and it includes counterspace to the right of the sink. Oh man. I love it. I may just get one.
