ACCESSORIES

Equal Denim Hangers

Nice! These hangers are made from recycled denim fibers salvaged from Japanese textile factories. Threads- those little flecks of color- are compressed with discarded fabric from the cutting floor into usable hangers for all your clothes. So, you’ll have remnants of clothes hanging your clothes…

Cobra Wall Sconce

The Cobra Wall Sconce might just be the coolest under-the-radar sconce ever. Why? Well, look at the subtle curve of the shade, for starters, and its classic oval shape. Did you know the Swedish architect and designer Greta Grossman designed it way back in 1950? It still looks thoroughly modern, in the quiet way of most mid-century Swedish modernism. The shade may be tilted 90 degrees and rotated a full 360 degrees, allowing you to concentrate light right where you wish.

Chops Cutting Boards and Knife Rack

Knives and cutting boards: two things that work together in the kitchen yet are often pulled from different spots. Chops combines the two, with a metal knife rack that holds two cutting boards upright for storage. Take off one board (or both) and you’ll see the simple black frame of the knife rack. After prep and cleaning, reset the boards on either side, and you have what appears to be just a slender wooden knife rack. Pretty handy.

Large Catch, Walnut

Hello there, little catch-all. How simple and unassuming you are, with just enough space to catch keys, phones, and other pocket contents. Perhaps you need to live on our dressers, desks, or entryway consoles, just to tidy up those spots which accumulate all sorts of miscellany on a daily basis. Hmm, now to decide, which size is best?

Lissoni Salt and Pepper

Should you need an option for no-fuss salt and pepper grinders, consider Piero Lissoni’s pair. Subtle and functional, they’re a smaller scale version of traditional grinders, making them the right size for tabletop use. They’re easy to hold in the palm, and also easy on the wrist thanks to the grinding mechanism at the top. Each fills from the bottom, with a coin to unlock the barrel.

Bollard Lamp

Four lamps in one, really? Yes, it’s true, the Bollard Lamp can be placed in four different ways around your home. Designer Shane Schneck planned the silicone Bollard Lamp to be used in various ways: it can drop down as a simple hanging pendant, you can angle it (hanging) as a spotlight, place it on a table or shelf on its side, or prop it up on its foot to beam light straight up. With all those options, it’ll be easy to find it a spot in your home.

Japanese Daily Calendar

Here, look, yet another perfectly decent calendar, and this time you might learn a little Japanese. What do you see on each page? The current date, of course, a full calendar of the current and previous month, weather predictions, and astrological symbols. You also get a reference key to interpret other details (moon phases and other numbers). Update: The calendar appears to have sold out, fyi (sad face).

Juno and Tara Bronze Hooks

How about some bronze hooks to organize any scarf/coat chaos in your entryway? Each hook was first made in ceramic, then cast by a small foundry. You get the feel of a handmade object with the heft and sturdiness of bronze. There’s the Juno Hooks, which each have a slightly different shape but all are roughly the same size, the Tara Oval Hooks, which sizes vary more noticeably, and the Kali Hooks (not pictured) which have a curvier outline.

Zig Zag Cutting Board Set

The Zig Zag Cutting Board Set does double duty; use the flat side as a cutting board or flip it around to use the zig zag side as a trivet or serving board. Plus, they’ll stack and store neatly away when not in use. Both pieces are finished with a food safe, homemade all-natural mix of beeswax and oil (a small tin of the wood balm is included). Nice, huh?

Ghost Vases

Show off those stems with either (or both) of these vases. Solid concrete paired with a wire frame makes the ideal receptacle for an interesting display of botanics. Magnets within the base keep the white frame stable, which makes eventual cleanup quick and easy.

Hide and Park

Oh, looky what we have here: a coatrack with hidden hooks and a hidden ledge for storing away all sorts of miscellany. The best part is when you’re not using it, there’s no extraneous details to catch your eye- it’s sleek and shows off the material of the wood. Chances are you’ll utilize most, if not all, of the hooks underneath this season, but it’s nice to know when you’re not weighed down with scarves, mittens and hats, you’ll have a visually clean coatrack/shelf to catch and store other sundries as they crop up.

Life is Fantastic Tea Towel X David Shrigley

Isn’t it though? This tea towel features an image by Scottish artist David Shrigley, and will perhaps remind you to appreciate where you are in life every time you dry your hands or dishes. Or, hey, you could even frame the thing as art, if you so desire. And, if you’re not thinking your life is particularly fantastic, maybe now is a good time to assess what would make it so, considering the new year is just around the corner.
