Rail Wardrobe System

This may be described as a ‘wardrobe system’ but let’s just say it’s an excellent coatrack/hook option for any of your clothing or accessories. With three different editions (standing, wall-down, wall-up), you’re able to pick just the right size for your space. Each very linear design would give you an extra storage option, along with a big dose of edginess for an otherwise ho-hum space.

Power Planters by Chen Chen & Kai Williams

Do you love these Power Planters by Chen Chen & Kai Williams because their own saucers are integrated into the design or because they remind you of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man’s legs?

Kartio Glassware

Glassware may not be the most exciting thing to you, but, hey, you use it every single day for your juice/water/spirits. Why not upgrade to something more visually appealing than the mix-matched set you’ve had since college?

There are quite a few subtle colors (you’re sure to find something to suit your preferences) and they’re durable enough for everyday use.
