Triangle Cutting Board

Don’t ask me why you need a triangle cutting board, because I don’t know. Maybe you simply cannot stand rectangles and only allow equilateral shapes in your vicinity at all times. If that’s the case, you’re a little weird/crazy and we should probably be friends. Each triangle is handcrafted by local San Francisco wood worker Luke Bartels from locally salvaged and milled wood. Three sizes available.

Plant Animals

Okay, so not everyone wants to add accessories to their plants, but these Plant Animals are kind of cute. Just attach each animal by folding the hands into shape around the branches or tendrils of your plant. As they’re made from brass, they’ll catch the light every now and then and remind you of your exotic “pet” that requires no care at all (you will have to keep your plant alive, though).

Mixrack

It’s that time of the year when stacks of logs in your living room are entirely permissible… unless you don’t have a fireplace, because then you’ll just look like a hoarder. This Mixrack is a simple frame of powder-coated steel that can accommodate firewood, wine bottles, or magazines. As long as you keep the stack tidy and avoid any other compulsive gathering of multiple materials, it’s an excellent way to store whatever you choose in a minimal way.

Crank Brothers Multi 19 Tool

Multi-tools are must-haves, don’t you think? Whether you keep one on you, in your car, or on your bicycle, you’re prepared for almost anything with a multi-tool. They’re way easier than carrying around than a toolbox, that’s for sure. The Crank Brothers Multi 19 Tool features side grips for a secure handhold and includes a spoke wrench, a chain tool, hex wrenches, open wrench, screwdrivers, and torx. And, yes, I had to look up torx. Also, if you are (or know) a cyclist, do check out the Crane E-Ne Bell in black, also available from the same retailer.

Hand-Painted Abstract Cutting Boards

Okay, so this isn’t going to appeal to everyone, but hand-painted cutting boards! With abstract shapes! Is that not extremely fun to see in the realm of kitchen tools? They’ve got a good safe mineral oil finish, though you’ll still want to take care and treat these boards as what they are: three quarters utilitarian kitchen staple and one quarter piece of art.

Iso Organizer L

Well, hello there. The Iso Organizer comes in a larger, longer profile, which is pretty perfect for organizing all sorts of papers, mail, and books. It’s made of heavy gauge cold rolled steel (6 lbs.) with a cork underside, so it’ll stay put without scratching the surface underneath. I have the original size (in blue) on my desk and I’m now trying to think if I need this larger version somewhere else. Hmm.
