  • Puur Design Studio

    It's always intriguing to see which design studio is putting out what, and which products actually make it through the initial 'wow' factor and into the actual 'i want that and am willing to pay for it' consumer realm. So, with that said, Puur Design Studio has a small but interesting array of furniture and home accessories. I especially love the 'Whoa' light with the base that plugs directly into the outlet and allows you to bend around any which way you want. Cuurve (Chair): Molded Plastic, € 750 Earthquake Clock: Aluminum, € 99 Magic (Chair(s)): Wood, € 1750 Whoa (light): Enforced bendable metal, € 69

  • BLTD webclip

    Yes, we've jumped on the bandwagon (albeit rather late) due to many a request. For those of you with iPhones, you can now add our BLTD webclip icon to your homescreen, allowing access with a mere touch of your finger.

If you've not added BLTD yet (gasp!) or if you're not sure how, here's a quick walk through: On your iPhone: 1. Find BLTD in Safari 2. Tap ...
