ACCESSORIES

Wörther Wood Mechanical Pencil

I’ve held my share of mechanical pencils, and there’s something entirely comfortable about the hexagonal, thick barrel of the Wörther Wood Mechanical Pencil. That ergonomic shape starts to become very important when you’re sketching or writing for longer periods of time, as you might know if you’re in any creative field. Plus, the fact the 3 mm thick graphite lead doesn’t need sharpening means that it’s an excellent tool for anyone who relies on a pencil for getting their ideas down on paper (or wood, metal, paper, or plastic, as the lead will work on almost every material).

Mirobolite Lamp

Let’s start the day off with a semi-expensive floor lamp. The Mirobolite has obvious influences from an ordinary task lamp, yet with its multiple joints and color options it becomes slightly extraordinary. ‘Slightly’ because the black and raw version don’t entirely blow your socks off, however, if you’re a little more daring in your color scheme, you might prefer the multicolor, which doesn’t hold back with its palette one bit.

Dual-Action Watering Can

If you have a green thumb, you might appreciate this sculptural Dual-action Watering Can. A recess in the base allows for a firm hold while the stainless steel lid allows for pouring from a removable spout or showering from the perforated section, take your pick. Holding the can’s neck instead of a handle is a bit more ergonomic too, which is a definite plus.

Cuboid Doormat

If details matter to you, maybe you’d like a better doormat. This one, made from coir (natural coconut fiber), is pretty cool in a minimal-sleek-undercover way. The 3D illusion makes a statement, or at least more so than a regular doormat. It would go well with this door, though it might look tiny in comparison, or this house (or, even better, this K House).

Future Glass set

The colors of the Future Glass Set remind one of the Spectra Vases, and, lo and behold, they’re from the very same glassworks Holmegaard. Peter Svarrer designed the Future Glass set in 2000, and more than a decade later they look just as lovely on the table… or in a gift box perhaps? Choose between Rose + Yellow, Blue + Green, or Lavender + Aquamarine.

This isn’t the first time we’ve featured Hopewell’s quilts and it certainly won’t be the last. Have you taken a look at their recent collection? There’s quite a few modern pillows and quilts, so if your bed, sofa, or wall needs a little kick in the pants in terms of color, you’d best take a look and see if something catches your fancy.

It can carry around 20 to 25 pens/pencils, so you’ll not need to be picky with your collection. (Ladies, this case could do double duty as makeup brush storage when traveling as well.)

Unfold Pendant by Form Us With Love

As you might have noticed, there have been a few posts lately from the recent and oh-so-long-ago past. That’s because it’s August, and, thankfully, that means it’s time to take a much needed vacation. So, instead of doing all brand spanking new posts each and every weekday, you’ll be seeing some content being fixed and updated and peppered into the line up, which is a good thing unless you like finding a lot of broken links every time you sift through our site.

All that to say that, thankfully, this Unfold Pendant remains at the same price as it was three years ago. Happy day. It’s one of my favorite lights because of its soft silicone shade. That allows this industrial look-a-like pendant to be easily folded, saving space in shipping (or your own moving) boxes.

Pixo LED Table Lamp (black/brass)

With the new color pairing of black and brass, the Pixo looks like it has put on its tux (or little black dress) and is ready for a night out. As you might remember from our previous post last year, the standout feature of the Pixo is not necessarily the 360 degree rotation and three-axis articulated stem; instead its USB port in the base for charging mobile devices seems to set it apart from the pack.

Melting Mug by Studio Arhoj

The thick glaze of the Melting Mug will hopefully give you a better grip so you don’t spill your tea/coffee all over your desk/boss/coworker. Each mug is made of hand-cast porcelain and will fit nicely in the hand, especially as the mug is similar in shape to traditional Japanese Yunomi tea cups. Available in pink, mint, yellow, white, and gray.

Crescendo Wall-mounted Tackboard

No matter how hard we all try to minimize bits and pieces of paper and cards and invites, they show up unbidden in our bags and on our countertops. What to do? Don’t buy a normal (boring) cork board to keep yourself organized, buy this tackboard with stripes! That’s right, it’s a tackboard, made of thin strips of industrial mill-made paper, all of which are stacked tightly together for the express purpose of holding your miscellany all in one place.

11+ World Clock

This might seem like just a simple grey clock, but it has a clever rolling mechanism that allows it to display 24 different time zones. The hands work independently from the body, so you can roll the clock to whatever time zone you wish, and then roll it back to the local time. Only the side shows each time zone, leaving the face free of any extra graphics.

WAKA WAKA’s Shaped Bookends

Fun bookends? Yes, please. WAKA WAKA’s Shin Okuda turns ordinary plywood into these colorful bookends. They’re sold in sets of two, in mismatched colors, mind you, so tell your books to stand up straight for their semi-crazy and exciting new friends. You DIYers might feel an itch to replicate these with your own shapes and colors, and, if so, go for it, as you’ll only need some plywood, glue, paint, and some sort of metal bookend to sandwich between the wood (right?).
