Table Light by Iacoli & McAllister

This table light by Iacoli & McAllister is pretty adorable. Yes, I did say adorable, and I mean that in a modern-adorable way (think petite rather than ‘cute-as-pie’). You have your choice between a black or white steel shade and a black, red, or aqua textile cable cord set.

Lead time is currently 4 weeks.

Soufi Mat

Is anyone else suffering from these gray days of January-almost-February? I keep being drawn towards bright pops of colors, specifically yellows and reds (you might have noticed) just to shake off some of the dreary dampness. Naturally, this red rug with its Ottoman-inspired pattern caught my eye, and you’ll be glad to know it’s made from 30% recycled PVC, so it’s bright and durable. Just the thing to get us through to spring.

Hand-wash only.
Size: 40″diam.

Prato Umbrella Stand

I’ve seen my fair share of umbrella stands and I think this one gets an award. After all, on a grey and rainy day, seeing a faux patch of grass holding up a few umbrellas might just cheer someone up a tiny bit. It can hold up to twenty (!) umbrellas.

Made of synthetic resin and steel.

Occasionally we’ll get emails from some of you saying that links on old posts need updating (and thank you very much for those emails, because there’s no way we’re able to spot them all on our own), and a few of you have noticed lately that this Utensilo post from Oct 2, 2007 needed some attention. So.

The Unten.Silo was designed in the 1960s by Dorothe Becker and Ingo Maurer, and has become a somewhat iconic storage solution. I love the fact that it keeps everything in its right place, whether it be in a office workspace, playroom, or kitchen.

Available in white, red, or black.

Licht Lights

Back in November, Supermarket asked us to pick a few things (see Guest curator: Better Living Through Design) and these lamps from Soo Kwon not only made the list but are still stuck in my head. With such a high-design look, it’s amazing that they have such an affordable price tag.
