Ceramic Birdhouse

This little ceramic birdhouse is on sale- $96.00 down from $120.00. And, if you are concerned about its credentials, don’t worry: it’s made from clay fired in a kiln that’s powered by renewable energy, glazed with an earth-friendly lead-free glaze, has a reclaimed cedar wood roof, and hangs from a suede cord. Satisfied? Also, wouldn’t this be a nice Mother’s Day gift?

Flaca LED Light

This strange* little light is made from a tri-fold sheet of stainless steel that can be bent to reach a height up to fourteen inches. While bending a steel lamp might seem counterintuitive, it’s meant to be customized according to your needs, so flex those arm muscles and bend away. Available for a limited time only from MoMA’s Destination: Mexico collection.

Upcycled Jump Rope

Jump rope! Get in shape with a jump rope made from 100% reclaimed mountain-climbing rope and rubber handles. Since the materials are reclaimed, no two will be the same. A 6.5 foot (single) length is sold at Branch Home, but should you need a 10.5 foot (double) length, go directly to Urban Infant.

Quarry Pendant Lights

Marble has long been a luxurious product, but how about using it as a pendant shade? These hand-turned pendant lights by Benjamin Hubert are pretty spectacular, as they show off the translucent properties of thin-walled marble. By using an LED, the large internal cavity remains open in order to appreciate the rough cuts in direct contrast to the smooth exterior. Here’s hoping they’re in your budget (and if they are, you’re one lucky duck).

Nomu Tea Set

Need an upgrade your tea ritual? The ceramic Nomu teapot has a removable cork sleeve that has two functions- it keeps your hands comfortable while pouring and it keeps your tea hot. There’s a potential third bullet point, of elegance; it certainly doesn’t hurt that there’s a distinct nod to Japanese craft and tradition. Two cups are included.

Book Couch

Here’s another guessing game for you- what do you think this is? The jig is up if you can read, as you’ve seen the title, but drag the image off onto your desktop and now you have an amusing game to play with a coworker to pass the time. Note: if your coworker has any sort of deductive reasoning, he or she might get it straight away, thus ruining hours of fun.

Miss Susan

Have a guess to what this is. Hint: it is not a plate, nor a pie chart showing wood consumption, and the title probably gives it away…

Steel Bookends

Bookends need not be fancy. Case in point, these utilitarian steel bookends from BOOK/SHOP. Perhaps they have the slightest flair with their “sporty side flanges” but really, those aren’t frilly or even close to fancy, they’re sporty, as the retailer states. Available in 3 powder-coated colors; Dark Grey, Light Grey, and Yellow.

Palm Coat Rack

If minimal is your middle name, then this coat rack from Eastvold Furniture might be just the thing for your entry way. No floor space is required; the set of three aluminum bars attach to the wall allowing for coats and bags to be hung from the bend at the top. Here’s where the minimal comes in- one bar has a “palm” wood shelf (measuring 13″W x 5.5D”) for keys, phone, wallet, etc… if your pockets won’t overwhelm that, then you’re good to go. Sold as a set, and custom lengths are available upon request.

Juuri Storage Jars

These are some of the nicest storage jars that I’ve ever seen. Each glass container has a flexible silicone collar that ensures an air-tight seal. While they’re intended for functional kitchen storage, you could easily use them wherever you need a container, say, for organizing desk items or jewelry.

SSB-1 bookcase

No matter that ereaders have most people eschewing physical books, some of us will always need plenty of tomes around us. And, for the current or special collection, what better way to display than this bookcase (or stand, as some would call it). Inspired by the Bruno Matthson Book Crib, the SSB-1 can be used alone or in multiples for a seamless-looking row. It ships flat and slots together, though don’t go thinking it’s low quality- each one is cut and trimmed by hand to make sure it’s an exact fit.

Izola Letter Opener

Combine a letter opener with a ruler? Sure, why not? Made from brass-plated alloy, one side has centimeter metrics with the slogan, ‘Follow the rules.’ The other side has inch metrics with the slogan, ‘Break the rules.’ Actually, it looks like that’s opposite from the image shown, so be prepared for a flip flop of slogans. Regardless, it’s always nice to see one tool with multiple functions.

Toolbox by Arik Levy

Sure, we can hope to organize everything perfectly in neat stacks in drawers and other appropriate places, but sometimes it’s easier to just chuck it into a box, or even better, a toolbox. Store your scissors, tape, rulers, or whatever else you like to keep on hand in this open toolbox and move it from desk to worktable and back again with little fuss. Lots of colors to choose from too.

Leather Strap Cutting Boards

These wooden cutting boards are nice enough to display on a wall in your kitchen, and that will be easy to arrange as they have leather straps for exactly that purpose. Keep in mind that the larger the board, the higher the price, and the more you spend the more you’ll want to keep that board looking good with appropriate cutting board oil (such as BCM&T oil).

Leaf-it Ivy

Ooo, there’s an ivy option for the Leaf-it sticky memo pads. So now when you’ve got a bajillion things to remember, your workspace will be covered in paper ivy instead of just looking like a cluttered mess… well, it still might look cluttered, but it will at least look more natural.
