Doll Lamp

Inspired by the shape of the traditional Japanese ‘Kokeshi Doll‘, this small lamp combines “feminine sensitivity and Foscarini’s technological design research capabilities.” Let’s also say that it’ll be your little lamp friend, shedding light on those dark, lonely nights. The blown glass ‘head’ emits a warm, diffused light while the plastic body allows for several color options. And, as the size comes in at just 8.5″ high and 6.5″ diameter, it can tuck into smaller spots quite well.

Giant Valentine’s Day Posters

It’s Valentine’s Day, whoop-do-doo, right? No time to get a gift if you’ve not done it already, and sorry, but a stuffed bear and flowers definitely do not count as a thoughtful gift. Now, a giant poster, on the other hand, that’s something to hang on the wall. And a cost of $5 and approximately 15-20 minutes to print it out at your local print shop? That’s a very small price to pay for the big smile you’ll get once that certain someone unrolls it. Download the images at Oh Happy Day.

Sheffield Kevlar Shears

Arm yourself with these shears and there will be nothing you can’t cut. Designed to cut through Kevlar (a para-aramid synthetic fiber, by the way), the Sheffield Shears will cut through practically any household material- tape, cardboard, thick fabric, you name it- as they’re extremely sharp and indestructible.

MagContainer

Magnetic wooden boxes that fit together for storing all sorts of sundries? Yes, please. Too bad it seems like only one retailer stocks a few pieces stateside, but that’s better than nothing. Crafted by artisans from Tokushima, each box is created in shapes of 30-degree increments. The magnets are embedded within the sides, so you may combine them in random geometric stacks that’ll stay put until you decide to change things up.

Kitchen Grip

Hmm, this is a rather hi-tech oven mitt, isn’t it? Made of pliable neoprene (FLXaPrene, to be exact), this mitt repels stains and bacteria buildup and the textured surface gives you a good, safe grip. What else do you want in an oven mitt? Maybe to throw it in the dishwasher when it needs cleaning? Done. Your wish is granted.

Asahineko Table Broom & Dust Pan

Go ahead and scoff at the $140 price tag. It is a table broom and dust pan, after all. However, the next time you’ve swept crumbs off the table with your gross sponge or inept hands and scattered some of the mess on the floor and chairs, don’t come back here complaining that there’s nothing you can do about it.

Star Cutting Board

Who’s a star? You are! Especially when you’re chopping up vegetables in the kitchen, or pulling this stellar cutting board out as an impromptu coaster or trivet for the table. And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Dot Coat Hooks

Hmm, maybe these are a direct attempt at copying the Coatrack Dots, or maybe it’s just a coincidence. Either way, $10 for a set of 3 coat hooks isn’t too bad of a deal, even if they are just flat, wooden disks without the rounded, smooth edges of the higher-end alternative. However, do be sure to consider the one review so you know what you’re getting.

Hang Around Cooking/Serving Set

These cooking/serving tools designed by Danish design firm KiBiSi have notches on the back so that they may gently rest on a pot or pan while you work. Made from white beech, they’re functionally minimal (or minimally functional?) as can only be expected from the manufacturer, Muuto.

Like-It Door Hook Organizer

Okay, let’s make a deal. We won’t hate this door hook organizer thing if we all agree to put it only where it’s absolutely necessary. That will be discretionary, of course, but I think we can all trust each other to use it to organize and de-clutter those spots that are magnets to miscellany- hall closets, laundry rooms, kid’s rooms (better in a kid’s closet), some bathrooms, etc. Each strap has 6 height-adjustable hooks that hold up up to 1kg (2.2 lb) on each hook.

Save The Date Cards

You know there are classier ways to send out a ‘save the date’ request than through email, right? And I’m talking about actual cards, those paper invites that the post office may still bring to our doors, if we’re lucky. Each card in this set is designed like a ticket, giving adequate space to note the date and event. Envelopes aren’t included, but that just means you can pick your own color scheme. Maybe liven things up a bit with a bright color?

Pablo Tube Top Pendant

The Pablo Tube Top lamps have been around for years- before 2007 at least – but this pendant takes the stretcher idea to new heights (so to speak). While the 36″ wide version, shown above, is perfectly proportioned for a rectangular dining area, the smaller 7″ or 14″ could work quite well above a bar or as a pendant above a bedside table.
