ACCESSORIES

Potence Pivotante Wall Lamp

You’re familiar with the Potence Lamp, right? Nemo has re-launched the original design by Charlotte Perriand in collaboration with Prouvé’s Tropique house. The long-armed, L-shaped light rotates 180 degrees on the wall, which lets light reach all around a room, making the most of its single halogen bulb. Of course, this version is a little more pared-down and straightforward than the angled Potence. Don’t tell anyone, but I think I prefer it.

Onsen Bath Towels

Do you have slightly musty bath towels? Uh-oh, that means bacteria is growing. Yuck. Don’t worry though, Onsen towels are to the rescue. They have a waffle weave design that is “effortlessly absorbent” and very quick to dry. Made of 100% premium cotton, they are soft and strong, yet surprisingly lightweight. Tempted to refresh your towel collection? Me too.

Fun! No need for fancy vases here, thank you very much, because there’s this water-resistant Paper vase that slips right over any small glass or plastic vessel. Its die-cut pattern and assertive color add a modern touch, so you’ll have an instant impressive display of wildflowers, a single stem, or a precious bouquet, quick as can be.

Chamfer Serving Boards

When you need to dress up your dinner spread, you can’t go wrong with one of these Chamfer Serving Boards. The ebony marble or clear crystal glass are heavy and luxe, which means you could put cheap crackers and cheese on them and they’d still look nice (though you would never do that, would you?). The sloped edges look sharp, and have the added benefit of easy lifting from the table.

Boom Table Light

Need a little light? The Boom task light by Tom Dixon is composed of a series of cylinders and tubes arranged in a semi-industrial sculptural stack. Inspired by traditional draftsman’s and machinist’s lamps, the pivoting arm and head will focus light right where you need it, which may just help you get your work done a tiny bit faster. If not that, then at the very least you won’t have headaches from eye strain.

Trash Me Lamp

Do you have any egg cartons lying around? Maybe you could make a lamp… or, at least appreciate that this small lamp is made from paper pulp comprising of four egg cartons, water, and aluminum screws. Designed by Victor Vetterlein, the lamp is intended to reflect the transient nature of the material used. At the end of its life the lamp can be recycled.

Next Cardboard Cactus Air Purifier

Huh? This cardboard cactus is an air purifier? Apparently so, and, according to the description, it breaks down “bacteria, fine dust and pollutants” with filters and a fan inside the cardboard structure. A particular surface treatment plus the use of chitosan and titanium dioxide (with an ultraviolet LED) all combine to make the surrounding air a little cleaner. Anyone interested in testing the efficacy of such technologies?

OMY Giant Coloring Page

C’mon, it looks fun, right? A giant coloring page to fill, with markers or crayons or both. You could certainly wile a few minutes (or hours) away, and we’ve not even talked about how much kids would like it. Pin it in the hallway at home or at the office with a box of art supplies nearby so people will occasionally stop to help out (and smell the scented markers). Plus, everything seems to move a little slower from February to March, so no one will notice if you end up filling in a section or two all by yourself.

Sheepopco Popcorn Bowl

See that little side bit on this Sheepopco Popcorn Bowl? That’s what you get to eat, because the rest is mine. Or, okay, I’ll share, but let’s do the fun thing and mix something with the plain popcorn for the right sweet-and-salty pairing. That’ll make movie nights all the more fun. Two bowls are included in the pack; one standard popcorn bag will fill both.

Naturally Cooling Ceramic Wine Cooler

When you’re drinking rosé or white wine, do you really want to deal with ice and buckets? Nope. Get yourself this Ceramic Wine Cooler from Magisso and then pat yourself on the back for making chilled drinks that much easier. Soak the cooler in cold water for just a few minutes, then let the natural evaporation process keep your bottle perfectly chilled for 2 to 4 hours, no ice necessary. A glazed base prevents water rings. Smart, right? It does the trick; I own one myself and couldn’t be more pleased (unless it somehow opened the bottle of wine for me, of course).

HeartShapes Blocks

February is just a couple of days away, so you know what that means… Valentine’s Day is looming (barf). If you have to get something for your significant other, consider the HeartShapes Blocks from Zoe Miller and David Goodman. The set of 50 wooden pieces are boxed in the shape of a heart, but can be configured into plenty of patterns; it includes an illustration sheet of designs to try out.

Indigo Splatter Ceramics by Chris Earl

An indigo splattered coffee cup is just what your tea or coffee would like to live in (however briefly) before you sip/gulp/slurp it down. Los Angeles-based designer Chris Earl is the man with the blue paint brush, and he splatters indigo glaze across his hand-thrown tumblers, coffee cups and bowls with equal enthusiasm.

Lak Wall Sconce

This little Lak Wall Sconce manages to be both cute and considered. Made by Jielde, a company known for their work lamps, the sconce is a reissue of a design originally conceived in the 1960s by Jean Louis-Domecq. And, should you need a particular hue, you might just be thrilled to know there are many excellent color options available, in either a high gloss or matt finish, or you can get a more precise color match by requesting a RAL color chart.
