House Trivets

This wooden trivet folds into a small, architectural “objet d’art.” That in itself is pretty cute, but it also means that it’d be easy to tuck away in a drawer or on a shelf when not in use. There’s a leather loop for hanging as well. Note: this would make a great housewarming gift for a friend or coworker.

What is it?

And, now, it’s time for another guess at the game of ‘What is it?’ You see an item made from cast iron, so it’s pretty heavy. It’s in the shape of a scoop, so that adds a little more mystery… what could it be? Answer below.

Tropical Walnut Abner Tool Box

This is the nicest toolbox ever. You certainly wouldn’t want to hide it away on dusty shelf in the garage, so think beyond just nails and hammers. Maybe it could keep sewing supplies organized, or your jewelry collection tucked away safe and sound. Made with Nogal wood (a.k.a. Tropical Walnut), each toolbox is made by skilled Nicaraguan craftsmen and features comb joints and an interior tray for smaller items. The tray and lid slot easily through the handle for a clean, streamlined look. On a personal note, I’ve had my eye on this Toolbox for a year now, and recently I was able to see it in person; it’s beautiful and well worth the price point.

Mobile Light by Andrew Neyer

If you have a dark living or dining area, may I suggest the Mobile Light by Andrew Neyer? The rotating arms allow for quite a bit of variety in movement, especially considering the arms are 40″ and 48″ in length. The no-frills, minimal design provides a clean look that would work well with other styles, so it’s a very safe bet for all sorts of interiors.

Hamill Lamp

Looking a little like an ancient artifact, the Hamill Lamp consists of a hammered brass shade, a blackened steel base, and the necessary socket, bulb, and cloth cord. There’s nothing complicated about it, yet the materials will add an extra layer of warmth- and maybe a dash of historical relevance- to an interior. There’s a sconce as well.

Sasso Serving Trays

It’s a large, flat wooden serving tray, so what’s the big deal? As is often the case, the big deal is in the smallest of details. A pebble-like shape finishes in a precise edge, giving the tray a very subtle, sculptural feel that puts the beauty of the wood front and center. But wait, is it too nice for your snacks or hors d’oeuvres? Nope, the price is pretty friendly despite its high-end look.

Less For Less Desk Lamp

Is this the thinnest desk lamp you’ve ever seen? A very slender metal tube bent into a perfect corner comprises the Less For Less Desk Lamp. Could it take up any less room? It’s doubtful; just check out its almost-not-there base. It’s safe to say it won’t get in your way. LED lights will save energy while providing ample light for your workspace.

Concrete Small Format Tape Dispenser

Sure, you’ve seen concrete desk accessories by Magnus Pettersen before, but have you seen the red and blue tape dispensers? Your life is simply not complete until you consider just how good red tape in a red concrete tape dispenser looks. I’m kidding, of course, but it does look pretty sharp, as does the blue. This version is a little smaller than the original version, fyi.

Slow Coffee Style Carafe Set by Kinto

Coffee usually speeds you up, but what about slowing things down? That frazzled go-go-go pace of your life won’t help your overall well being, as you probably already know (but won’t do much about). Perhaps you could dedicate a few moments to, well, smelling the coffee as it brews. Using the pour-over method, this carafe set brews the coffee slowly, forcing you to slow down and add water bit by bit.

Soapstone Shot Cups

Besides the lovely bluish hue, did you know that non-porous soapstone will not trap flavor or odors? And that it keeps your favorite beverage cold? Now, back to the lovely bluish-black hue, let’s hope that’s not just the spotlights creating the color, because it’s something special. Designed by Thea Mehl for Teroforma’s Ekke series and sold as a set of four.
