Loop Tea Strainer

Another tea strainer. Aren’t you excited? I know how important it is to you, that perfect (elusive?) cup of tea, and Kinto has yet another option to consider. This stick-shaped tea strainer has a slidable side that allows you to scoop tea leaves directly without the use of a spoon. Slide the side back down to cover, and then place in your cup with hot water. The slidable part is easy to remove completely for cleaning.

Rinse Bowl & Strainer

A rinsing bowl that has a strainer is different from just a strainer, right? Right. This bowl has a strainer ‘side’ that folds out to catch your pasta/fruit/veggies, so you can rinse and then strain out the water all in one bowl. Sort of smart, isn’t it? Also available in red and green/avocado.

Abeego Food Storage

You recycle everything, you minimize car travel, you try very hard to buy local foods, so why the hell are you still using plastic bags for food storage? Maybe you could take one tiny extra step and get some reusable food storage already (duh).

The Abeego material is a hemp and cotton fabric infused with a blend of beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil that keeps food fresh. What? Huh? How? Keep your pants on, and listen. When at room temperature, the cloth is slightly adhesive and malleable, and when it’s cool, it stiffens and holds the form you create. The natural coating is fluid and air resistant, and you just hand-wash in cold water to clean. There are a couple of drawbacks, though: no dishwasher or microwave use, and you might be accused of being a hippie. (Kidding about the last bit, of course.)

OYOY Silicone Placemats

Messy eaters, rejoice, for OYOY has some nicely patterned silicone placemats to protect your tabletop from yourself (and/or kids) and guests who tend to spill and splatter.

Quattro LED Task Lamp

Degree, Quattro, what are we here, a drugstore? Despite that bad imagery, turn your eyes toward the new Quattro LED Task Lamp by Robert Sonneman and Peter Polick. If Mondrian and Rietveld come to mind, you’re not alone- the black, yellow and red finish along with the rectilinear form are spot on De Stijl, and if you’re not familiar with those names, do yourself a favor and follow the links (it’s difficult to fully appreciate modern design without knowing its roots). Back to the lamp- it uses Flat Panel LED technology to produce an even and glare-free light. There’s also touchless dimming control thanks to an optical sensor. Also available in black, white, and aluminum finish if the red/yellow/black doesn’t suit your taste.

onefortythree Wall Lamps

Bear with me here as I calm myself down from a conniption fit. I’m frantically trying to figure out where in my home I need an extra (and rather large) swing arm lamp after perusing the awfully affordable wall lights from onefortythree. (Have we posted these lamps before? Who cares?) You think I’m over exaggerating, and I am ever so slightly, but just take a look at the prices- $95, $145, $275- and each light is remarkably lovely. You can’t go wrong with those prices or any of the lamps… but, if you do, just let me know and I’ll be happy to take it/them off your hands.

Riviera tray

Need an elegant landing pad for your precious phone, keys, and other pocket contents? The Riviera tray is hand made with solid wood, and the only decoration is the interwoven slats of the two sides.

Windowfarms

Short on space but still want to grow your own greens? Not a problem. A Windowfarm utilizes vertical window space for year-round growing. A hydroponic system allows maximum yield; nutrient-spiked water is pumped from a reservoir down through each bottle to bathe the roots of the plants, giving them adequate food and water on a set schedule. You can order a system directly from Windowfarms, or if you’d prefer, simply build your own by gathering parts and recycled materials yourself (note: this will take a fair bit of effort/time).

Soft Blocks

Bookmark this block set as a gift for your favorite little one, and save yourself the trauma of going into a toy store. This 30 piece set is waterproof (they float – think bath time) so kids from 3 years and up can safely throw them around without hurting anyone… or the furniture, as might be the case. And, who knows, maybe you can practice your construction skills alongside the little future architect/designer and learn a thing or two about unedited creativity. Also available in color.
