ACCESSORIES

Raised Fist Poster

The clenched fist is a “a universal sign of solidarity and support.” Should you feel beaten down by the news of the past few days, remember, you are not alone. This particular print may just be enough to keep you going… organizing, uniting, and working to make sure your voice is heard.

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.

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.

Bottle Humidifier Mini

You may be needing a humidifier to combat the dry winter air or to provide some relief from seasonal allergies. This little mini 11+ Bottle Humidifier promises to supply enough humidity for any personal space, all powered via USB. Skeptical? That’s understandable, due to its compact size, but it is powerful enough to use in a bedroom, office, or living room. There’s also the regular sized Bottle Humidifier ($69), if you prefer a bigger size.

Moon Bowls by Normann Copenhagen

You could probably use an extra decorative bowl or two, as there’s usually a few odds and ends floating about that need a home temporarily (because you’re eventually going to put it away to where it belongs, riiight?). The concave wooden vessels you see above and below are named after the moon, for they resemble perfectly shaped moon craters. Use them together or individually to hold your smaller things in the office (paperclips), closet (jewelry or keys), or kitchen (dry foods only).

Jackson Pollock Table Textiles

Do you find these Jackson Pollock Table Textiles amusing? Those of us with any interest in art history may be a tiny bit offended (eating on a likeness of a Pollock painting? Gasp!), yet the pragmatic side of us must admit his art could hide a multitude of dining sins, thus making these textiles very… convenient.

Wire Planters by Norm Architects

If things feel dull and dreary in a room, perhaps you need a plant or two. Plants are excellent for purifying the air and they give a much needed dose of nature (and texture) into boring rooms. The Wire Planters by Norm Architects elevate plants at varying heights, which makes things more interesting and, well, more natural.

Alphacrete, Concrete Neon Light

Get your message across with some heavy lettering- though you’d be smart to keep it short and sweet (each letter sets you back $200). Maybe just one, short word? Seletti’s Alphacrete Lamps have neon glass surrounded by concrete for a sharp contrast. Kind of fun, right? They can go indoors or outside and can be hung on the wall or kept on a tabletop or shelf. Keep in mind to add the right transformer to your order for the amount of letters you buy.

Magnetic Dustpan and Brush Set

Tidying up will become much easier when you pick up this Magnetic Dustpan and Brush Set by Bürstenhaus Redecker. Not only does it have a horsehair brush and an oiled beech handle, which will feel right at home in your hand, but embedded magnets let the brush snap back in place on the dustpan once you’re done. Be sure to take a look at the Shoe Cleaning Hedgehog too- it’s pretty cute.

Note that you could place it against your backsplash to save room or even use it as a bookend for your cookbooks. So, now to decide, do you prefer Acacia wood or walnut?

2017 Sunlight Calendar

Another calendar for your consideration… this one subtly shifts tones from one month to the next, signaling seasonal changes with a “haze of hues.” Pretty, right? Inspired by the sun’s height and intensity, the year is laid out with intuitive color. Don’t worry, the cold winter months are pretty too, perhaps sometimes in direct contradiction with what you may feel when you step outdoors.
