ACCESSORIES

Imperial Rug

We posted this way back in 2005, and if you’ve searched our archives, you know that updates are often needed. This rug by Nauris Kalinauskas is perfect for anyone that likes mixing things up occasionally, as you can interchange the pieces to fit the size and color combination you want. Each set has 10 pieces of the same color, so you can combine multiple sets to find your own unique color pattern.

Pia Layered Pendant

If you’re on a tight budget, check out this layered light. At 14″ by 32″ high, it’s big enough to hold its own over a dining area yet the price ($68) won’t put a big dent in your wallet. I like how it feels organic in a Boontje-esque way.

Peanut Butter Dynamite Rugs

How. cute. are. these. For real, at these prices, I’m seriously thinking I could find a spot for one somewhere in our kid-less abode. They’re just too darn adorable.

Rose Line Table Lamp

Here’s a surprisingly affordable table lamp from CB2. It’s got that minimal/luxe look with a white linen shade and a handblown glass cylinder base. The red cloth cord is a nice detail too.

SeR+ collection

Using only surplus yarns, each of these rugs by Alicia D. Keshshian is tied in a traditional Tibetan knot and GoodWeave certified. There’s a few different color ways available in each of the different styles, but keep in mind that most sizes are around 24″x36″. All rugs are zero waste.

Real Time analog digital clock

If you’ve got $1,275 to spend, listen up. Dutch designer Maarten Baas‘ Real Time exhibition in Milan this past April is now on Blu-Ray*. That’s right, you can now own a 12 hour long movie in which a performer acts out the motion of a digital clock by painting over and wiping off panels of a glass screen.

studiokmo Mapcuts

Check out these intricate hand cut maps by studiokmo over on Etsy. There’s several cities to choose from, in either white or color, and if you can’t quite afford the larger versions, don’t fret because there’s smaller sizes available (shown below).

Cast Iron Fire Bowl

We featured this fire bowl way back in ’08, but now that it has a Stainless Grill top option, it’s pretty much the perfect thing for these early fall evening dinners… or S’mores, of course.

Triangle Tea Towel

I’ve stated my love for tea towels before, and this triangle drawing has me itching to ‘add to cart’. Also, check out the Triangle Pillow ($45) with the same design on natural linen.

Original drawing of triangles in an indigo blue ink on 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton fabric.

DBA Pen

Maybe you’ve seen this already, maybe you haven’t. Either way, it’s still the only 98% biodegradable pen in the world. The body is composed of bio-plastic, the ink reservoir from biodegradable fiber, and the ink itself is ACMI certified non-toxic. Not enough for you? Well, it’s also produced at a wind-powered facility in the US, so that should be enough to impress.

Designed to decompose in a compost facility within 180 days.

Wine Cork Stoppers and Pourer

I love these new Wine Cork stoppers designed by Aurélien Barbry. The Wine Pourer (right) is pretty clever too, as its top ensures a proper seal. With more and more wineries choosing screw tops over cork stoppers, these will at least keep some of that traditional feel alive.

Paige Russell + Fossil Planter

Check out this stoneware planter from Paige Russell. Fossil asked four artists to create an original piece of artwork that illustrates the Fossil motto/slogan ‘Long Live Vintage’. Inspired by the Eames Lounge Chair, this planter by Paige is my absolute favorite.

Choco Tape Dispenser

If you’ve got a faux allergy to plastic, consider this walnut tape dispenser. And you thought your office mates were jealous of your Swingline, just wait until you unveil this baby. Takes standard sized tape; one roll of Japanese washi paper tape included.

Globo di Luce Pendant

If you’ve long been a fan of Roberto Menghi’s iconic Globo di Luce Pendant (1968), you’ll be happy to know that the copper version is on sale right now. I’m not sure if DWR is discontinuing the copper or if it’s just a summer sale, but either way you’ll save half off the regular price.

Date Ruler by André Klauser

I posted this a while ago, but seeing as it is now available stateside it’s worth a second look.

If you had the right sort of metal ruler and circular magnets, you might be able to replicate this yourself, or you could just spend £15 and get this one (thereby supporting the designer who thought up the idea in the first place).
