Hee Outdoor Seating

I like these so much.

“Inspiration can come from anywhere, and in the case of Hee Welling, it was the interior of a refrigerator. More specifically, the shelves inside the refrigerator caught the eye of this industrial designer…
The durable powder coat finish makes the Hee Lounge suitable for indoor and outdoor use by protecting the solid steel underneath. The coating also provides a surprisingly soft seat, and gives a slight “give” to the surface.”

Available in White, Yellow, or Green.

Made of solid steel with a durable powder coat finish.
All are stackable.

Ivy Panels by Tord Boontje’s

“Tord Boontje’s distinctive vision is now available in modular panels that link together to form wall hangings, room dividers or screening curtains; their uses limited only by your imagination. Each panel is 7″ x 11″, and they come six to a box, so each box assembles into a total area of 7″ x 66″ or 42″ x 11″ . These dreamy floral gardens are cut into plated steel and then coated in brass or silver.”

* Packaging: Gift box
* Size: Each panel is 7″ x 11″ , 6 panels to a box.

orloff bowls

It’s no secret we like hexagons here at bltd, so it comes naturally that a ‘geodetic’ dome by Patricia Urquiola would, of course, be posted.

“From the designer of the ‘T-table”, “Usame” and “Buckle” watch, comes “Orloff”. Patricia Urquiola imagined a sort of inverse geodetic dome, transformed into bowls of two sizes. The project put deep-molding technicians to the test, as the containers are made from a single disc of drawn plate 18/10 stainless steel, without welding.”

Lexon Foam Radio

A new clever foam radio from Lexon…

This funky little radio by Elise Berthier is pretty basic – a straightforward AM/FM radio encased in a slab of foam – but produces surprisingly good sound, thanks to its built-in amplifier. Takes 4 AAA batteries (included). Also available in black.

Care instructions: Avoid getting wet. Dust with a soft, dry cloth

Silhouette Wall Light

The floor lamp version is especially interesting…

“In its ‘off’ position this is a white rectangle, seemingly blending into the wall. But pull on the cord, and the glow of a sconce is revealed.”

MDF board, fire resistant fabric, cord.

Fine Bone China Plates

Though this might be slightly more expensive than your average plate, it certainly sounds nice to say, “Please bring out the fine bone china”… as well as that, it looks to have an awfully nice black and white pattern which would probably push it into the ‘timeless’ category.

Hand wash.

Charger/Serving Plate, 12″ diameter, $45.00

Home Sweet Home

Like Katie, I’m surprised I haven’t reached total annoyance level with vinyl wall decor. (What’s wrong with us???)

Anyway, this “Home Sweet Home” vinyl decor is something I’d actually put on my walls. It’s nice and large in scale (34″ x 4″) and would look quite nice on a sparse wall.

“Decorate any wall you wish with pressure sensitive application. Wall Words are not reusable. Made in the USA.”

Endless Necklace

I swear I’ve made a bracelet just like this, except it broke and fell off somewhere because I used lesser quality supplies.

“The Endless Necklace is constructed of functional jewelry closures, mimicking the form of the classic pearl necklace but rendered entirely in clasps. This deceptively simple necklace belies its historic influence.”

Material: Sterling Silver Size: d.16″(40cm) +1”(2.5cm) extra

Strut Coffee Table

If you’ve seen this before, sorry for the repeat. If you haven’t, may I call attention to the simple structural design and nice color choices?

“Stucture and design are one with the Strut. A proud stance for any gathering. Choose ivory or robin’s egg blue for a subtle impact, or dark olive or watermelon for more punch power.”

Powder-coated steel frame with a durable polyurethane finish over MDF for the top.

14H x 54W
