Izola Soap Dishes

Soap dishes aren’t the most important things, I know, but these caught my eye. The Scout Soap Dish states ‘I PLEDGE TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE, TO BE TRUE AND BRAVE’ which is a rather nice reminder, don’t you think?

Three Potato Four Chalkboard

If you’ve never heard of Three Potato Four, and you like antiques and flea market finds, you’re in for a treat. Besides having their own brick and mortar store located in Philadelphia, PA, they’ve now teamed up with Urban Outfitters to design 3-P4, an eight-piece home collection inspired by the items from their shop. Stu Eli, who owns and runs the store with his wife Janet Morales, says their aim was to create items “manufactured for everyday use”.

Kiosk Table Lamp

Update: The Kiosk Table lamp is on sale for $190 now at DWR, which is a heck of a lot more affordable than the regular price of $380.

This oval shaped lamp would look lovely in any room. It’s substantial as far as size and materials, yet the shape lends itself to working well on sideboards or nightstands. Inspired by classic mid-century Danish lighting.

Porcelain Trays at West Elm

I love this little porcelain tray from West Elm. I think this is the perfect place to put my phone, wallet and keys when I come home after work. It would also be a really cute place for jewelry or make-up or anything that needs a bit of organizing.

$16 for the big one, $6 for the little one. Currently they have free shipping. For $22 you can make out like a bandit and organize to your hearts content!

Nua Nest Set

These colorful little pod-like pieces would be perfect for putting by the door for small things like keys, sunglasses, phone, etc. They’re small enough you can hang a jacket or coat on top, which is a definite plus. Made out of rolled bamboo using traditional Vietnamese skills.

Pail by Monika Piatkowski

A felt bucket, you say? Why would you need that? Well, it’s wonderfully soft and you could fill it with magazines, papers, knitting, toys, so on and so forth. It would be great for toting things up and down the stairs or to and from the car.

Coava Kone Coffee Filter

After moving out to the Northwest it didn’t take long to notice that people take their coffee pretty seriously out here, and I’m not talking about Starbucks or Seattle’s Best. A welcoming local cafe is always a stone’s throw away, catering to both the casual coffee drinker and as well as patrons of the most distinguised taste. In Portland, one of the most unique cafes I have come across is Coava in the Central Eastside district. Sharing a space with a bamboo plywood showroom, the interior is industrial chic (fancy enjoying your coffee at a tablesaw?) yet is warmed by a large, welcoming bamboo counter and of course the lingering aroma of coffee beans. Serving coffee via a Chemex pour-over brewer is their first choice for a rich tasting cup, however co-owner Keith Gehrke saw the single-use paper filters to be quite wasteful. Instead of just dealing with it he decided to design his own filter, called the Kone… (more…)

Cardboard Pendulum Clock

This cardboard clock arrives at your door flat packed and unadorned, ready for you to assemble and decorate in whatever way you see fit. I’d be tempted to leave it as is, especially as it’s currently available with laser-etched detailing of a traditional pendulum clock’s face (limited edition of 50). There’s also a smaller Cardboard Clock for £15.00 (see below).
