Gather Vases

The Gather Vases by Sam Anderson invite you to arrange your floral bouquet across a variety of different receptacles. Choose just one for for a singular statement or collect all five for a larger, more spectacular display. All are made from borosilicate glass, so they’ll withstand your occasional clumsiness (for the most part).

Plantation Porcelain Element

Hello there, little Plantation Porcelain Element. You’d be perfect for growing herbs and other plants, as you would fit inside any existing glass as the ideal home for new cuttings or germinating seeds. Let’s notice how you can be used right side up or upside down, depending on the cutting and our plant tending preferences. Now, the question is, do we need just one, or several to start our own plant nursery?

Pepper Tray

Pepper dust. If you have a pepper mill, you know all about how it sits just under your mill whenever you set it down, creating little dust piles of pepper. How about a tray to keep it contained? Yes, it’s the smallest detail, and maybe a little unnecessary, but you like to keep your kitchen spic and span, this may be your pepper mill’s new best friend.

Porcelain Spear Mortar & Pestle

Mortar and pestles are sculptural kitchen necessities, so they’re often found out on the countertop. Now, this particular Porcelain Spear Mortar & Pestle would be an absolute shame to hide away, because it’s plainly beautiful. It’s a functional object, to be sure, yet its elegant curves add just a hint of decoration. The white unglazed porcelain is effective for grinding spices and won’t get in the way of your minimalist tendencies.

2017 Scratchable Wall Calendar

May I suggest you sit down, take a sip of water, and prepare yourself? Because this is the first calendar of 2017 I’ve seen and it surprised the hell out of me. 2017!? It’s July, though, yes, just barely. It’ll soon be August, then September, October… you know the rest. The onslaught of holidays, etc. Ugh. Maybe you could get a jumpstart on the impending doom, or at least ease yourself into it, with this Scratchable Wall Calendar. The matte black PVC surface can be written on with chalk, then erased. You can also scratch off the white and silver ink, giving you ample opportunity to make the calendar more suited to your minimalist (or maximalist?) preferences.

15.0% Ice Cream Spoon

Before you roll your eyes at a $45 spoon, you need to know this is a special spoon, for ice cream. It uses your body heat to cut through frozen ice cream, which makes your “scooping experience” effortless. The solid aluminum spoon has a thermal conductivity of 237 W/mK (watts per meter kelvin), so you’ll be slicing through your favorite flavor with ease like a ice-cream-eating ninja.

Folded Vessel

Ah-ha! This proves that some designers are mercifully kind to those of us that can’t afford to just plonk down a thousand plus dollars for a beautiful book/magazine stand. Chen Chen & Kai Williams have designed the Folded Vessel for Good Thing, and it’s similar, though less expensive, to their Third Eye Vessel design. Three identical petals fasten together to form the floor-standing container, giving you an excellent spot to keep your records, books, and magazines. The matte-black is a no-brainer, but the pale pink or cobalt blue are also appealing options if you don’t mind a little color.

Chopping Blocks

Nice! These solid American Ash chopping boards are made from off-cuts. That means every circle, octagon, or square board you buy, you’re reducing the amount of wood that ends up in a landfill. Each block has a rope handle for convenient hanging for storage (or for swinging it around your head when you want to look crazy or dangerous).

Ile w153 Table Lamp by Wastberg

In love with a lamp… that should be a song title, shouldn’t it? The Ile w153 Table Lamp, designed by Inga Sempe, aims straight for our hearts, as it can be clamped to a ledge or tabletop, mounted on the wall, or set upon a flat surface. The shade moves smoothly, as it has a magnetic connection to the base. Now, the question is, just which color would be perfect for your bedside, reading chair, or desk? (Two grey/brown lamps are calling my name, I think.)

Bambus Glass Carafe

How about another nice carafe to hold your hydration source? This handblown carafe was inspired by the bamboo of Zen gardens; it has an elegant handle and a drinking glass that fits perfectly on top. As stated before, a carafe lets you rely less on plastic bottles of water (hooray!) and more on your own two feet… to get water from the office cooler or your fridge’s filter. Perhaps while you walk to replenish said water you can be thankful that it’s clean and plentiful, and that you’re crossing a distance of yards instead of miles, unlike lots of other people in other parts of the world. Did you know you’d get a guilt trip while reading about why a carafe is so great? Surprise, and you’re welcome.

Brace Wall Hook

Here’s a wall hook that does double duty: the looped brace gives you an extra spot to clip your keys or hang scarves or umbrellas. It’s also extremely kind to your clothes, as there’s no angular hook to create havoc in the neck area of shirts or jackets. The cast bronze shape is like a jewelry piece for your entryway; just enough subtle glitz to give a sense of specialness.

Cutlery Set

Ditch those plastic forks, spoons, and knives, because you’re going to buy this Cutlery Set. All three utensils nest together into a compact case for safekeeping and easy transport, which is convenient for your daily lunch at the office or your next camping trip. Stainless steel won’t bend or break, and, as a bonus, you can freely lecture anyone around you about how their use of plastic cutlery is lame, both in function and for the environment. You may not make new friends this way, so maybe it’s best to just wait as others slowly notice your superior eating utensils, then tell them all about it.
