ACCESSORIES

WC Line

Oh, the glamourous world of bath sets. Out of the many available in the marketplace, this is one of the least offensive, and dare I say, even pleasant to look at. Durable silicone combined with sturdy wood is quite practical, and, of course, makes it completely obvious as to their cleaning/storing function. The set ($125) includes a plunger, toilet brush and waste bin, or you can purchase items individually ($45-$55). Take your pick from Black, White, Red, Blue, and Orange.

Facet Doormat

Do you find doormats depressing? Fancy some facets? This 100% natural coir doormat will cheer you up straight away; it’s made with environmentally sensitive dyes and is fade resistant. And, if you’re looking for similarly angular planters to complement your new doormat, perhaps you should consider the Element or Geo planters.

Book Tray

Corral your current books, magazines, and miscellany on this tray that doubles as a charging station. Space under the tray allows cables to be hidden yet accessible while the metal bookends can be adjusted to suit your collection. The Book Tray would be entirely useful for a desk top or perhaps even a shelf in a high traffic area of your home/office.

The Universe and The Galaxy

There’s nothing like a few space prints to make you look like a complete nerd smartypants, and I’d vote for these two by Mike Gottschalk. They’re inexpensive and impressive with just enough text to put things in perspective. (Pretty perfect for those of us not afraid of being nerds.) These prints are also available framed or on stretched canvases, fyi.

This handcrafted swing by Dzierlenga F+U is made from local cedar in upstate NY and can be personalized with a message, name, or initals. Talk about a great housewarming gift, eh?

Petri Dish with Dome Cloche

Oh, how to display your precious objects? Or tiny plants? Those special collectibles and/or living specimens can now live protected in a small glass petri dish under a similarly smallish glass dome. Fact: objects in glass domes make you look smart, unlike just petri dishes, which, if you left lying around, would make people think you’re really weird, or a scientist.

Earth Blocks

These blocks are a bit odd- sort of like a concession between a kid (“I want legos!”) and an interior designer (“No, they’re too colorful!”). Don’t go getting ideas though- replacing a child’s toy blocks with tree bark and tea leaves- that’s what these blocks are made of- is bordering on plain meanness. However, these blocks could be an interesting decorative accent for an eclectic interior.
