ACCESSORIES

Marmoreal White or Black Board

So, maybe you can’t quite afford to have Max Lamb’s Marmoreal Bathroom or even a Marmoreal Side Table. You’re not alone. However, if you’re really, truly in love with the engineered stone, maybe you can afford to serve your cheese on a Marmoreal Board. My favorite is the black (it looks like outer space!) but the white is equally appealing as it showcases the colors just as well.

You’ll have fun twisting and turning these colorful Snake Blocks to make all sorts of interesting shapes and patterns. 24 wooden triangles are held together with an elastic band, and you have your pick of a large or small version. It’ll keep your hands busy when you’re brainstorming (or waiting for an idea to hit, as is often the case).

Playtype Attitude Mugs

Are you an activist, a feminist, or an optimist? Or maybe you’re an egoist, a narcissist, or a materialist? Get the mug to match the quality you most identify with, and then prepare yourself for a high five (or a few raised eyebrows) when you next get your midmorning cup of coffee. Could be a good gift for a friend/family member too.

Turn Around Juicer

If you don’t mind using a little old fashioned elbow grease to produce your morning orange juice, then you’ll want to consider the simplicity of this wooden juicer from KiBiSi and Muuto. The Turn Around Juicer stands on its own and fits the palm nicely. Shall I point out that this won’t need any updating as years come and go, unlike other electrical juicers? Plus, the juice will taste all the more sweeter knowing you made it yourself (and burned some calories whilst doing so).

Prism Magnifier 120mm

That’s right, there’s the smaller Prism Magnifier, and now there’s the larger 120mm version. Through the prism, images and texts are shown at 1.5x the actual size, so we can study things a little closer and maybe squint a little less. As a bonus benefit, if sunlight happens to hit the prism at the right angle, you’ll get a little rainbow across your desk.

Theorem Desk Lamp

Inspired by the hypotenuse of a right triangle, this smaller LED lamp will tuck in nicely amongst your other desk items. You do remember what a hypotenuse is, right? The Theorem Desk Lamp from DAMM is made from hand turned solid Ash base, cerused (I had to look up what that meant), with a natural beeswax finish. And, if you’d like an alternate color scheme, there’s black as well. An alternate arm shape? Piazza.

PIFF Hooks

The all-black set of PIFF Hooks is decidedly suitable for many a modern interior, with its shiny Bakelite and ash posts capable of holding coats and scarves and other miscellany. However, if you don’t mind a bit of color, you absolutely have to consider the color sets: full red, orange/pink/purple, and pink/yellow/blue. So fun.

Get yourself these affordable Peili ash wood servers, because they’re “aesthetically sophisticated” tools.

Grow Greenhouse

Anything that will help keep plants alive is pretty much a must-have, but this Grow Greenhouse has me itching to buy multiples. Two handmade glass parts combine to create a small nursery for beginning plants. A small valve on the top dome allows for air and moisture regulation, and a spout on the dome’s edge allows you to use it for watering. Smart, isn’t it?

Linear Box Planter

We all know that simple, clean-cut planters aren’t abundant at the local plant nurseries. That’s probably why every time we run across one it’s a mad dash to see how much it is, what colors it comes in, and quick! buy it before someone else snatches it up. So, sure, we’re into the Linear Box Planter. Skinny, square legs, and a simple rectangular box, what’s not to like? It’s worth noting that the plywood box has an open bottom, with what looks like a metal cross bar for supporting your own pots in their not-so-pretty plastic.

Piippu Pot

The Piippu Pot by Kaksikko looks a like a distant relative of the Svante Watering Can, no? Its shape and side handle reference traditional tea service, yet the addition of the filter holder makes it suitable for coffee as well. Each pot is crafted by hand by designer Salla Luhtasela and is available in a black engobe finish or white gas-fired porcelain.

Birch Coat Hook

There’s nothing complicated about this Birch Coat Hook. It’s made of two wooden dowels, so it’s simple and sturdy, and will have no trouble holding up your heavy coats and other entryway (or office) miscellany. The lower hook has its tip hand-painted in either white, teal, or gray for just a hint of contrast.

Knot Cushion

I bet this cushion would kick ass in a pillow fight, though you might prefer to take a nap instead as it looks so delightfully soft. Icelandic designer Ragnheiður Ösps Sigurðardóttir was making legs for stuffed teddy bears when inspiration hit: why not tie the flexible tubes into a knot? And this comfortable, soft, sculptural cushion is the result. Pretty fun, don’t you think?

Porter Paper Towel Holder

If you saw this sitting on a kitchen counter, would you immediately know what it was? Probably not, especially if it wasn’t wearing the item it was designed to hold. Yep, it’s a paper towel holder, quite possibly the only one that doesn’t offend a design snob. The top of the rod bends to lock in the paper towel roll; the bent top also functions as a handle.
