Clutch Floor Lamp

If you look closely, you’ll see that there’s no hinges or finicky hardware on this floor lamp. Well, what magic is this? Magnets, of course. Magnets allow you to arrange these two lights on this white oak floor lamp in various ways, without the normal visual clutter. Each light dome has its own on/off floor switch as well.

Field Notes: Red Blooded

The Field Notes Red Blooded Edition is the latest color offering of the trusted and timeless pocket notebook. It’s not news worth shouting from the rooftops, but the timing makes it a great gift for that special someone in your life. Taking the theme and running with it, Field Notes created this video turning one of the notebooks into a heart-warming valentine. They “swear” they’re not trying to sell you notebooks. Really.

Noir Pendant Lamp

The Noir Pendant lamp, which is a powdercoated black matte metal shade with a beech wood cap has a weighty, architectural look to it. With its large scale, the fixture would be most suited as an anchor for a dining table or perhaps a kitchen island.

Collapsible Laundry Basket

This isn’t for everyone, but it seems so handy to have such a large-ish rolling basket to simply collapse and store when not in use. Quite similar to the Collapsible Wire Basket from CB2 (and, most likely from the same maker/manufacturer), this basket collapses when you don’t need it for your household miscellany (toys, laundry, etc.).

Material: Metal
29″ height, 22″ dia., 13.5″ basket depth

Cast Iron Tape Dispenser

This won’t be going anywhere. It’s made from heavy cast iron, so you can be sure it’ll keep your tape in place no matter what. It’s just too bad that it also has a hefty price tag. Available with black or white text.

Geometry Notebooks

A little geometry will do you some good, especially when it has nothing to do with numbers and everything to do with decorating a simple notebook. Each blank book is hand-printed and you have your choice between Ruler (grey), Protractor (pink), or Set Square (yellow).

50 blank pages in each book which measures 4.25″ x 5.75″.

Chalkboard Kitchen Clock

So, take note that ‘kitchen’ is in the title of this clock. We can all probably agree it’s a more casual item intended for use as a little family message center rather than an timepiece meant for a super modern sleek living area. It used to be $248 (yeesh!) but now has the slightly friendlier price tag of $99.95. It’s chalkboard, so of course you can write in your own numbers or notes, but what particularly stands out is it has two pullout holders for the chalk and eraser, making sure the tools are hidden yet at-the-ready.

Strap Mirror from Hay

Well, hello, hello. This is like a Captain’s mirror from the future. With a silicone strap and powder coated steel, it’s got the modern materials to banish any antique store stuffiness. And, hey, the price isn’t too shabby either, especially considering some Captain’s mirrors go for around the $2 G mark (like BDDW’s that starts at $1600).

Also, if you like the more traditional Captain’s mirrors, I did some searching and found a couple of leather ones within the $400-600 price range:

16″ dia: $375 at Empiric Studio
26″ dia: $625 at Empiric Studio
17″ dia: $375 at Maison Luxe (via Remodelista)

Or, check out this DIY video from House and Home showing how you could make your own with an Ikea mirror and a few belts: DIY Captain’s Mirror.

Quips+Queries Cards

I, for one, believe that a quick handwritten note will never go out of style, no matter how advanced technology gets. For those of you that agree, might I direct your attention towards these cards, of which there are 6 different designs all available in a set of 50. My favorites are the 8 ball and Luck designs (shown), but there’s also a pink set (with 5 different French sayings) and a blank set with a silver or gold edge. There’s also an option of 100 cards in an acrylic box if you’d prefer to stock up: Quips+Queries Set, $28.00

‪Envelope Calendar by pigr

Perpetual calendars are pretty much my favorite thing, and this one has an envelope. So, there’s ample space to collect receipts, invoices, etc. all in one place per month. Pretty smart, eh? Be aware that it is available from an Italian site, so there might be some wait time as well as additional shipping charges.
