ACCESSORIES

Lempi Glasses

Sometimes those cheap plastic cups just won’t cut it at the dinner table. Upgrade to the Lempi (means ‘favourite’ in Finnish) Glassware from Iittala. Use them for everyday water or for that special occasion wine; they’ll fit every occasion. And, as a major bonus, the Lempi is stackable to save space in your kitchen. If you’d rather a bit of color, check out the lilac, light blue, and grey.

Fermob Planter Baskets

Fermob has plenty of practical outdoor furnishings, but these Planter Baskets are particularly perfect for a patio. Why? Well, the handles, of course. If you’ve ever tried to move a heavy planter, you know the value in that. They also have two holes for water drainage (with plugs) and the feet and trays separate for easy filling and transport. The baskets are available in a plethora of colors, several of which are sure to suit your fancy.

Tonal Boob Pillow

It’s a Tonal Boob Pillow, and why wouldn’t you want one? You’re not the type to shy away from an cartoonish image of a body part, and, in fact, you can celebrate it without any of the awkwardness that may come from someone more serious.

Koki Ice Cream Scoop

I scream, you scream, we all scream for… you know the rest. Make sure you have a decent scoop for your ice cream, because you don’t want it to melt while you wrestle your serving (plus others) out of the box or tub. The Koki’s handle is comfortable to hold and has a length suitable for all types of containers. It’s perfect for soft and creamy ice creams (homemade is best!).

Verterra Compostable Dinnerware

At your next summer soirée, upgrade the dinnerware from the humble paper plate to compostable dinnerware made from fallen leaves. What, you say? Yep, spend a bit more and have a sturdier surface for food (no collapsing, no mess), and know you can toss it all in the compost when the party’s over. Sounds good, right?

PH 5 Pendant Light

If you’re going to buy a PH 5 Pendant Light, it might as well be on sale. This classic light was designed by Poul Henningsen in 1958 and remains one of the smarter choices for glare-free illumination. You’re probably familiar with the slightly more popular PH Artichoke by Henningsen, yet the price tag on that makes it a little less attainable. The curved reflectors on the PH5 ensure that light is directed appropriately, and, with several superb color combinations, it’s a perfect choice for above a dining table or workspace.

Sans Calendar by Rationale

It’s the middle of May and you’re seeing a calendar. What’s up with that? Well, this calendar is worth buying, if only for half a year’s use, as dates are listed as two vertical columns with space for important notes. The vertical layout may be just a little more workable for your desktop area. If the minimal black, white, and red design looks familiar, that’s because it’s got the same sort of feel as Massimo Vignelli’s popular Stendig Calendar.

Flange Vessels

Ooo, these vessels are want-worthy. Maybe plant a few cacti for an impressive grouping, or use the bowls as a gathering spot for keys and mail. In any case, you’d do well to get a few, say, three or all five, so you can make a modern terra-cotta statement somewhere within your home. Or perhaps even on your patio?

Slow Brew Iced Tea Maker

Slow brewed tea sounds slightly pretentious, I know, but this little guy makes it look super easy and worth a try. After all, summer is almost here, right? Apparently cold-brewed tea is less bitter and astringent, just like cold-brewed coffee. A double-walled, clear infuser lets you keep an eye on the color while also keeping the tea’s temperature stable. You can even try cold-brewing coffee in it, as the retailer notes.

Space Pod Playhouse

If any of your kiddos are even slightly interested in space, you’re kind of obligated to get this Space Pod Playhouse. It’s a kit, so it’ll take a tiny bit of elbow grease to construct the “four-foot cosmic cruiser” (75 plastic fasteners and tools are included). Who knows, you may encourage a career in astronomy or engineering. 55 cardboard panels printed with all sorts of details help encourage playtime.

Magnetic Mirror Shelf

Who needs a small-ish magnetic mirror with a shelf? Because this one is the bee’s knees, as the saying goes. Set your phone, sunglasses and keys on the shelf in an entryway or office for safekeeping, or even hang it in the bathroom to have a handy spot for toiletries. The magnetic backing (plus two included magnets) offers you all the more storage- be sure to utilize that feature by posting reminders, notes, or special keepsake photos out where you’ll see them everyday. Now on sale (reg. $110)

Kaenjusai Watering Can

Will a pretty watering can make your houseplants happy? Probably, but it will be because you’re happy watering them with the Kaenjusai Watering Can by designer Keita Suzuki. See the matching angle of the handle and spout? That will give you a precise “point-and-pour control” to ensure less spillage. A walnut handle compliments the copper body.

Tea Kettle By NORM Architects

This tea kettle/pot by NORM Architects has a built in steeper that is secured to the top lid when brewing is finished, making the process tidy and efficient. Plus, as the teapot is glass, you can see the brewing process and stop it once the shade is exactly to your liking- especially useful for those of us that are particular about tea. Pair it with the tealight heater to keep the tea warm.

Cactus Vases

Okay, ‘love’ would be an appropriate word to describe my feelings towards these Cactus Vases by Serax. Texture! Color! Shape! And, of course, they look like cacti. Get a bunch of them, please, and arrange them on shelves or tables until you are completely content. No need to fill them with flowers, but, if you want, get a bunch of pretty stems every once in a while just to remind yourself that they are, in fact, vases.
