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.”

Season Metal Lantern

This looks like it would add a nice patterned glow to your room. It doesn’t specify whether it’s appropriate for outdoors, but it sure looks like you could set a nice outdoor soirĂ©e using these for centerpieces.

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
Dinner Plate, 10 1/2″ diameter, $26.00

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

Copper Shade suspension light

This sounds like it required some very precise scientific procedures, which makes it that much more impressive.

“The appearance of the Copper Shade is achieved by converting copper into a vapor, and then depositing the vapor on the interior of the plastic dome. This ‘vacuum-metalized’ film of copper is only microns thick.”

17.75″ diameter dome

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.”

Butterfly Collection Vase

Each of these vases are handmade and therefore vary slightly…I like how they are rather tall and skinny with just a touch of detail.

These ceramic cups feature a gentle organic ripple pattern on their exterior and a clever insulating double interior wall, making them cool to the touch and easy to hold with even the hottest beverages.

Elan Four-drawer Chest

I like how this is simple, no-nonsense and looks a little like packing crates. It’s got a sturdy price tag because it’s made with all the traditional joinery techniques that make it last forever: tongue and groove, mortise and tenon, and dovetailing.

“Each piece of wood is hand-rubbed with oil to bring out the grain’s character. Four-drawer dresser has an open and airy look with horizontal slats exposing vertical supports and hidden angle-cut self-pulls.”

‘big bend’ desk by jeff miller for baleri italia

This piece is strong enough to stand on it’s own in a large room (it would have to, considering the price).

“a sculptural and flowing desk design from jeff miller that pushes multi-ply wood curvature technology to new limits.

two identical pieces of curved multi-ply wood form the legs and base, supporting a matching multi-ply top that almost appears to float above the base and legs.”

dimensions : small – 39.35″w x 70.86″l x 28.35″h : medium – 39.35″w x 94.5″l x 28.35″h : large – 47.25″w x 106.25″l x 28.35″h
