Pitcher with Cup from Lagos del Mundo

Maybe you think this pitcher and cup from Lagos del Mundo doesn’t belong on your ‘must have’ list, but that will all change when you’re sitting outside on a hot summer’s day without an aesthetically pleasing receptacle for a cool, refreshing drink. The ceramic pitcher with cup is handmade from natural clay and glazes; the same materials have been used for over 3,000 years, so you’ll not need to worry about this set ever going out of style.

Repurposed Beer Cloth Apron

If you want to look cool while cooking, throw one of these aprons on. Then, when someone says, ‘Hey, that’s a cool apron’ you can say, ‘Oh, this thing? Yeah, it’s a repurposed beer cloth with old climbing rope for the neck strap and waist tie. Kind of cool, huh?’ And then you’ll flip your omelette (or gourmet pancakes or some other incredibly delicious breakfast food) and look like you’ve got your life completely figured out, you smug bastard.

The Level from FluidStance

No, it’s not a hoverboard, but it certainly will help you move around more. The Level by FluidStance is a platform that increases your range of movement while standing. It’s similar to a skateboard in size, yet it has a central rounded base that keeps your muscles engaged- they’ll need to work a little harder to keep you steady.

Ceramic Self-Watering Planter

Thank goodness, there’s a self-watering planter that hides the fact that you suck at taking care of your plants. It’s ceramic, so that in itself helps make it look nicer, and has two parts to reduce your watering chores. The upper matte cylinder holds the plant and the lower glossy water reservoir will let the plants roots drink as much as they like. Finally, you’ll have a happy plant in a happy, nice-looking planter. It’s a win/win sort of situation.

Tomnuk Walnut Trivet Tray Set

Why should you care about a walnut trivet tray set? Maybe you shouldn’t, as there are much more important things going on in your life, but your dining table just emailed to let me know that it cares an awful lot about not being burnt from hot pots and pans, and why don’t you stop being a slob and protect your nice furniture?

Fire Tools by Arik Levy

If you have a fireplace (lucky you), you’d best have a decent set of fire tools to keep the flames under control. This set by Arik Levy includes tongs, shovel, brush, and a bucket with the word ‘fire’ on its side just in case anyone gets confused. The tools are constructed of sturdy lightweight aluminum with rubber handles for a strong grip.

GINO Glass Dripper

Here’s an elegant little coffee dripper that fits directly onto your cup. Made from borosilicate glass, it’s heat and scratch resistant.

Brew for one or use the Gino Server for two or more.

SAIC Origin Cuatro Platters

Platters with grids will bring out the best of your OCD, or at least that’s what we’ll hope. SAIC student Allison Rokusek uses various fine-lined grids for the design of these porcelain platters, as she believes grids “help section the world into more digestable pieces.” Makes sense, doesn’t it?

Neon Light by Minimalux

Have your own Dan Flavin-esque light sculpture by getting one of these Neon Lights designed by London based MINIMALUX. A bright, radiant glow is made visible from the colorful interiors of a folded steel box, giving off the impression of neon strip lights. Group several together for a bigger lighting statement or just pick one for a quieter glow.

Fragment Cushions

Does anyone else feel like it’s hard to find the right sort of accent pillow? You don’t want anything too wacky, and sometimes a solid block of color seems too safe (and a little boring). Perhaps some might sort these Fragment Cushions from Ferm Living into the wacky pile, but I think they’re fun, and have a bolder color scheme that would inject a good bit of pattern into an otherwise ho-hum room.

Prism Steel Chiminea

If you’re going to have a chimney, it might as well be a geometric, prism-like one. Raw, hand-welded steel will develop a patina (that’s a nice word for rust, by the way) over time and the chimney is removable for cleaning.

Dot Wall Light

There’s nothing complicated about the Dot Light from Lambert & Fils; it’s just a handmade brass disc with plenty of nylon wire to hardwire it onto a wall (or specify a rocker switch and plug). However, the size of the circular base makes the warm reflection of the bulb more visible and entirely more elegant (in a subtle Hollywood glamour sort of way).

Sucabaruca Memphis “Pop” Coffee Service

You better act fast if this coffe service set makes your heart beat faster, as only 10 editions exist. That kind of limited availability halfway explains the price, and once you add in the vibrant, hand mixed color pigments, it makes complete sense. Made by porcelain artist Alissa Coe, the set includes a wood gift box and a small book about the production process of Sucabaruca.

Tribeca Franklin Chandelier

A little brass, a dash of branch-like design… put them together and it’s enough to make you want to assemble your own Adelman Chandelier. However, if putting together a semi-complicated light isn’t your thing, then, not to worry, Søren Rose Studio will hook you up with the Tribeca series, or, more specifically, the Tribeca Franklin Chandelier. Retro-chic? Certainly. A lighting statement? Most definitely. Also be sure to take a look at the Tribeca Leonard Chandelier, the Tribeca Reade Table Lamp, and the Warren Wall Lamp.
