ACCESSORIES

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.

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.

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.

Music Box

If you’ve not already purchased a Mozartkugel Music Box, then do be sure to consider this other option from Adam + Harborth. It’s a square music box that plays “The Blue Danube” by Johannes Strauss II. Think of it as the perfect gift for someone who has everything- except a modern music box, of course.

Dandelight by Studio Drift

This is another wonderful sort of object we featured years ago (2008) and now deserves an update. Lonneke Gordijn of Studio Drift first started gluing dandelion seeds to LEDs a decade ago, and I think it’s now safe to say that the Dandelight is now somewhat of a design classic, made all the more certain by the MoMA Store offering it up for sale. Plus, right now, MoMA is offering free shipping and guaranteed holiday delivery(!).

True Colors Vase Collection

So pretty… any one of these vases will get you out of a pinch when it comes to selecting a gift. Dutch designer Lex Pott has made each vase from a different metal, with each cylinder shape showcasing both an oxidized and a highly polished finish. This contrast of organic patina and polished metal makes for a spectacular-yet-subtle statement.
