ACCESSORIES

Trays from Kalon

Need a few nice wooden trays for snacks and drinks and such? Turn your eyes toward Kalon’s set of trays, in either bamboo or black walnut. They’re nice enough that they could venture out of the eating areas and into the living zone- perhaps to keep your pocket contents corralled or your reading stack organized?

Twin Carafe

This double-walled carafe is just about as simple as it gets. For coffee, use the center of the lid as a pour over set. Not big on coffee? The lid’s ridged edge filters loose-leaf tea. Pretty smart that the lid works for both, right? Without the lid, the glass carafe works overtime to hold water, juice, or maybe even (if you’re feeling nice) flowers.

Klein Reid Brass Top

This is a sort of gift for someone who has everything. It’s a toy, so it’s hard not to spin it around, and it’s beautiful, so even when not in use, it’s a lovely little thing to look upon. Precisely turned, hand-polished and signed, each top is gift boxed with with chamois and care and spinning instructions.

Duck Duck Pillows

Just so you know, the Duck Duck Pillows have a bunch of fun color combinations, and they’re all kind of perfect for the sofa, or a reading chair, or as an accent pillow (or two) on the bed (don’t go overboard*). My favorite? Color Mix 5 or Color Mix 3, I can’t quite decide.

Concrete Trivet

Remember the Table Tiles Optic? Now there’s a concrete trivet with the same 3D illusion, which means you’ll be able to join several together for a larger mosaic pattern on your tabletop. Each trivet fits a kettle or saucepan, so double (or triple) them up for larger casserole dishes.

Bub Table Lamp

This isn’t the first or last bulb-stuck-in-the-side-of-a-lampshade you’ll see, but it is perhaps the most alluring. A bulb pierces the side of the hand blown glass shade, at just the right height for a friendly, floating apparition. The olive tint gives the lamp an extra amicable look that’s sure to get along with other pieces in your collection.

Dusen Dusen Sheet Sets

What might you pair with your new Hay Polygon Quilt? How about Dusen Dusen’s Alphabet or Objects Sheet Set? Yes, that makes for a lot of shapes and pattern, but that’s what makes a bed fun… riight? I’m pretty crazy about all the accompanying throw pillows but they’re all sold out (sad face). The throws are so good they’ll need their own post, so stay tuned.

Welcome Set

Talk about organizing your entryway, this Welcome Set by Andres Martinez has a place for all the essentials and fits in the smallest of spaces. Three included hooks give you a hanging zone for coat, bags, and scarves, while the ledge offers a perch for your keys and glasses. Of course, there’s an accompanying mirror just so you can double check that you’re presentable. Spread out all the elements along a wall if you’ve got the space, or create a smaller vignette for tighter spots.

I’m Light Notebooks

These notebooks are just what they say they are: light. With over 600 blank pages to fill with your creative ideas and drawings, you’d expect them to be dense and heavy. However, they’re made from high-quality eco friendly paper, so they’re surprisingly light. And, for those of us that like to fill the whole page, the binding lays flat. Thumbs up.

‘Pion’ Lamps

A lamp by Bertjan Pot, you say? And it’s not too terribly expensive? Well, sign me up. The ‘Pion’ lamps for Wrong.London and Hay have a shape that references a pawn chess piece (‘Pion’ is the Dutch word for “pawn”). Crafted from a stitched composite ‘Nomex’ paper, the lamp gives off a soft, diffused glow that’s sure to set the right ambience in any room. The shape is supported by a steel frame and carbon-fibre rod, and, don’t worry, the shade is both UV-stable and flame resistant. Suitable for floor or table use.

Daily Fiction

If you go weak in the knees for stationery stuff, you’re in trouble. Normann Copenhagen recruited Denmark-based designers Femmes RĂ©gionales to create over 200 different designs in the Daily Fiction collection. There’s 18 colors and four abstract terrazzo prints all over notebooks, stickers, pencil sharpeners, scissors, pens, pencils, and more… all that’s left to say is good luck picking which ones you’ve got to add to your collection.

Studio Arhoj Slurp Cup

Just look at the colors on Studio Arhoj’s Slurp Cups. Pretty, right? Each porcelain cup is hand-cast and glazed in various colors for an interesting take on your morning coffee or afternoon tea. You may choose to just get one for the office, or several for a set at home. There’s also the smaller Sip Cup for espressos or perhaps as a pot for smaller plants and succulents.
