ACCESSORIES

Concrete Brick Lamp by Hyfen

This LED lamp has no switch, shade, or wires, which begs the question, how on earth do you turn it on? Well, it’s more of an intuitive system, so, you simply raise it in an upright position to turn it on. Lay it facedown to turn it off. It’s completely portable- remember, no wires- so, pick it up and take it with you from room to room to get a warm, white light illuminating your immediate vicinity.

Portable Barbecue by Groovebox

Don’t say goodbye to outdoor eating just yet- Groovebox has this oh-so-convenient Portable Barbecue to get us grilling out on our patios/parks/campsites in the crisp fall air. The whole design breaks down flat to make transport easy (it has a carry bag), so make sure to bring it with you on your next outing. Don’t forget the marshmallows.

Polygons Flat 4-in-1 Measuring Spoon

Polygons is an origami-like measuring spoon that lays completely flat; how you pick it up determines which spoon size you’ll get. Pretty smart, right? Premarked areas show you where to grasp to get the right measurement, making it easy to switch between volumes while cooking or baking. Use the Polygons to scoop and spread, and know that clean up is quick and unfussy. Now, who wants one of these for their kitchen? Back the project over at Kickstarter.

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. And, it’s now on sale, at 15% off through October 20.

Aurora Light Kit

Fun! The Aurora Light Kit is a set of set of nine interlocking, triangular LED lights that you can program with your smartphone or your voice (there’s an included controller as well). Attach them to any flat surface- no holes required- then play around with colors and patterns to create your own lighting installation. Light up a dark hallway or add a little luster to a boring lounge area; they might be just the thing to add some sparkle for your upcoming holiday soirées.

Dymaxion Folding Globe

You may be familiar with Buckminster Fuller’s 1946 patented a map of Earth, as it presents no visible distortion of the relative sizes of land masses. Designer Brendan Ravenhill has taken Fuller’s projection (and architect Shoji Sadao’s hand drawn 1954 Dymaxion Projection) and turned it into a magnetic folding globe, which means we all have something to do with our hands next time we’re waiting for a brainstorming session to strike. Fold it into a geometric globe or unfold it to see our planet flattened out.

Hem’s wool throw collection by fashion designer Arthur Arbesser is still available, plus some designs from Sylvain Willenz thrown in to tempt you further. Dare we say that each pattern and colorway is both modern and fun, and absolutely perfect for any interior?

Maple Raised Chopping Block

Short on counter space? The Maple Raised Chopping Block is just for you, as it creates space underneath for placing knives or other accoutrements. Quality craftsmanship takes it straight to the table for food presentation, as the sliding dovetail joints are cut with such precision that no glue is required. It’s equally suited for camping, as the legs keep the board off the ground and the surface is long grain (instead of the usual end grain) to keep the board light and packable.

Iso Organizer L

Well, hello there. The Iso Organizer now 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.

Snowe Bath Towels

If you need to refresh your bath towels, you need to look at Snowe’s offerings. I ended up buying their Starter Bathe Bundle last year* and I can honestly say they’re the nicest towels I’ve ever owned. They’re soft and lightweight, and soo much better than the top-of-the-line towels I used to buy from you know where. I am still impressed with the quality, so much so that I ended up buying another towel bundle (plus two bath sheets) from them just now**.

Boob Hook

If you don’t mind a little humor in your home furnishings, take a look at the Boob Hook from Thing Industries. It’s a play on the particular part of the body that so many people obsess over. If you choose to add one or two to your entryway or dressing area (a pair are encouraged, but certainly not necessary), not only will you have two functioning hooks to hang your keys or clothes, you’ll be celebrating boobs. BOOBS! Fun.

Landmarks Bowl by Klemens Schillinger

Contain those odds and ends with a bowl that looks even better empty. Maybe that will motivate you to put everything away in its right place? We can hope. Klemens Schillinger’s Landmarks Bowls have a sculptural presence with their stepped interiors that looks way more expensive than they are, meaning you get a whole lot of bang for your buck. Choose between the larger oblong or the smaller, circular size.
