Polo Table Lamp

Polo Table Lamp
An articulated task lamp is essential if you're at your desk in the early morning or very late at night, though let's hope you're not working too hard.

Switch Stool and Table

Switch Stool and Table
What's better, a side table or a stool? That's a tough one, so how about both? Bend Goods offers up the Switch Stool and Table. Add a glass top to the base and it's a table. Add a stool pad (in vegan leather) and it's a seat. The stool pad flips over for a more compact side table option too. Pretty handy to have around, don't you think? Material: Hot-dip...Read more

Trays from Kalon

Trays from Kalon
Need a few nice wooden trays for snacks and drinks and such? Turn your eyes toward Kalon's set of trays, in either bamboo or black walnut. They're nice enough that they could venture out of the eating areas and into the living zone- perhaps to keep your pocket contents corralled or your reading stack organized?

Twin Carafe

Twin Carafe
This double-walled carafe is just about as simple as it gets. For coffee, use the center of the lid as a pour over set. Not big on coffee? The lid's ridged edge filters loose-leaf tea. Pretty smart that the lid works for both, right? Without the lid, the glass carafe works overtime to hold water, juice, or maybe even (if you're feeling nice) flowers.

Duck Duck Pillows

Duck Duck Pillows
Just so you know, the Duck Duck Pillows have a bunch of fun color combinations, and they're all kind of perfect for the sofa, or a reading chair, or as an accent pillow (or two) on the bed (don't go overboard*). My favorite? Color Mix 5 or Color Mix 3, I can't quite decide. Duck Duck Small Lumbar Pillow, $59.00 Duck Duck Square Pillow, $89.00 Duck Duck Large Lumbar Pillow,...Read more

Kime Shoe Horn

Kime Shoe Horn
Do you sometimes need a shoe horn? You know, that thing that helps you put on your nice shoes without crushing their heels? If so, get this one, because it's beautiful. Perfectly symmetrical and carved from a single piece of wood, the Kime Shoe Horn appears to be an art piece rather than a functional tool. Lucky for us, it's both. “Kime” means texture or wood grain in Japanese and...Read more

Bub Table Lamp

Bub Table Lamp
This isn't the first or last bulb-stuck-in-the-side-of-a-lampshade you'll see, but it is perhaps the most alluring. A bulb pierces the side of the hand blown glass shade, at just the right height for a friendly, floating apparition. The olive tint gives the lamp an extra amicable look that's sure to get along with other pieces in your collection. Olive tinted blown glass Cloth-covered cord with inline switch Maximum wattage 100W...Read more
