ACCESSORIES

Clear Glass Beakers

Beakers: receptacle for flowers or just a decorative item to make you look interesting? Actually, the whole I’m-influenced-by-science-and-taxidermy trend has sort of come and gone (though it could be argued that abc home carries them is proof to the contrary), so you’re most likely in safe territory to add a few to your collection without getting the icky ‘trendy’ label. Not that we care about such things, of course.

Pearson Clip Lamp

This is not your humble clamp light ($9), as you can tell from the price. David Weeks has designed this clip lamp for DWR, and, as expected, it features his signature asymmetric shade along with rubber-padded clamp rings for stability. Now, is it worth the $256 price difference? As usual, that is entirely up to you.

The cover shows the contents; the exterior design is the same on the interior pages (except the pages are offwhite). Choose between the Lined or Grid cover, or choose both if you are in need of an extra notebook. FYI: This notebook fits the Notefolio perfectly.

Rosenthal Sugar and Creamer

Do you have a proper sugar and creamer set? Not the end of the world if you don’t, of course, but it’s something to consider if you use sugar and cream/milk consistently in your coffee or tea. It lends an air of civility, sure, but there’s something about enjoying the small pleasures and ceremonies of daily life and taking care to surround yourself with things that are both useful and, in some cases, also beautiful. (“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” William Morris)

YMSK Triangle Clips

If you think the standard paper or binder clip cannot be improved, think again. Yamsaki Design Works has made a simple revision in shape that improves the function of a paperclip. The triangle clips lay flat, thus keeping a low profile when holding papers together, and leave the paper unwarped when slipped off. Small changes, sure, but small details sometimes make a big difference.

Sbriciola Bread Cutting Board

Corral bread crumbs easily with this cutting board from Alessi. As you slice bread, crumbs fall between the slats into the tray below, which then pulls out for quick cleaning. Designed by Anna and Gian Franco Gasparini, the very same couple who designed the Milky Way Minor Cheese Knife Set. If you know someone serious about their bread and cheese, you might consider either (or both, if you’re feeling generous) as a good gift idea.

Cafino Coffee Maker

No filter bag needed for this coffee maker. The Cafino has a double stainless steel mesh sieve that fits into a heat resistant borosilicate glass cylinder. Simply place your ground coffee beans into the sieve, pour boiled water, and voilà, you have coffee. It’s quite similar to the metal Kone Coffee Filter used with the Chemex Coffeemaker, yet in a more familiar coffee press silhouette.

Classic Games Set

Let the games begin, or rather, que les Jeux commencent*! Dominoes, Chess, Pick-Up Sticks, and Checkers. The four classics all pack up neatly in this box that you can take on the go- the chess board is on the bottom of the box and the checker board is on the bottom of the lid. Could be a good thing to have on hand for your next road trip, or maybe just for those lazy summer days outside (of which you’ll have plenty, right?).

Eva Solo Grill Globe

Snazzy, isn’t it? While the price is significantly higher than a charcoal grill you’ll find at your local store (say, a Weber Kettle Grill for $99), it does look significantly nicer… though, I suppose it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth 460 bucks more. Yes? No?

Mega and Mini Dot Quilt

Aside from not having more US distributers, Hay can do no wrong in my book. These reversible Mega Dot Quilts hit the target for lighter summer bedding, yet, as usual, be prepared to pay a little extra for the spot-on subtle pattern and colors. If you’d rather have a smaller size as a throw for the cooler spring/summer nights, or for a smaller children’s bed, there’s the Mini Dot Quilt for $186.00.

KINK Vinegar Bottles

Just when you think your kitchen needs nothing more, someone goes and makes a vinegar bottle beautiful. Who needs a beautiful vinegar bottle? Well, nobody, really, but if you’re particular about the tiniest details, then you might as well go all out on a vinegar receptacle. There’s also the Kink Oil Bottle ($125) if you want a matching set.
