Signal Flashlight

Signal Flashlight
You don't think you need a flashlight until you do, so, make sure you have one at the ready, just in case. And, if you have to have a flashlight, why not make it the Signal Flashlight by Sylvain Willenz? It's made from aluminum and silicone and has a handy USB rechargeable battery that powers an ultra-bright LED. As a bonus, you can pick your favorite color option (you know,...Read more

The Abbott Stool

The Abbott Stool
This three-legged stool is comfortable in its nudity. Solid construction with tenon joints, shapely legs, and a slightly beveled top combine to make it easy on the eyes; it'd be a shame for it to hide any of its parts behind paint. Dimensions: Height- 18.5", Seat width- 11.75", Footprint- 13" Lead Time: 8 weeks Materials: White Oak No VOC white oil finish...Read more

Duo and Pool Rug

Duo and Pool Rug
There's something special about irregular rugs. It's the unexpected shape, so different from the regular rectangle, that leads the eye around the rug's circumference and lends a sense of playfulness. Grain's Duo Rug combines two shapes to create one; each shape is composed of a different braiding technique, adding a subtle textural difference. And, if circles are your sort of thing, you may like the Pool Rug (below), as it...Read more

Bari Cheese Grater

Bari Cheese Grater
Spending close to $200 on a cheese grater may sound ridiculous, but then you've never seen how serious I am about cheese. This Bari Cheese Grater combines a grater with a serving dish; this cuts down on dishes needed, of course, but it also elevates your fresh parmesan into a proper experience. A glass lid keeps grated cheese fresh- that's no small thing if you're serious about your cheddar (haha)....Read more

Clouds Poster by Debbie Carlos

Clouds Poster by Debbie Carlos
Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's hard to find an interesting piece of art under $50. This Clouds Poster by Debbie Carlos is pretty much just what it looks like: an image of clouds printed on a plotter, which is a large format printer primarily used to produce architectural and engineering prints. The rougher image is made of a series of dots, just like images from newspapers or magazines....Read more

CoopDPS Cotton Blankets

CoopDPS Cotton Blankets
Blankets in July? WTF, right? Yeah, well, it's cold somewhere right now, and someone is going to want a soft, cozy throw to warm their toes. Plus, summer won't last forever, and these throws by ZigZagZurich (designed by Nathalie Du Pasquier & George Sowden, founder members of Memphis movement) are relatively inexpensive and very much pattern-fantastic. There's more available at CoopDPS, including duvet covers (!). So, go ahead, take a...Read more

Grip LED Torch Flashlight

Grip LED Torch Flashlight
Why not employ the same grips of the BMX bicycle to a flashlight? You don't want to drop it on your toes, after all, especially not in a dark, potentially scary room when there's no electricity. It's a practical, tactile solution to sweaty palms. Brand: PRAXIS Designer: Alexander Taylor Material: Natural Rubber, LED Light Updated price and link; originally from our archives (posted Mar 11, 2013)....Read more

Lumos Helmet

Lumos Helmet
If you're a smart cyclist, you're going to try to be as visible as you can be at night. This helmet will certainly help, as it integrates lights, brakes and turn signals. That's right, it's a smart helmet; the rear lights automatically turn red when you slow down and the turn lights are activated by a small remote on your handlebars. Sounds great, right?

Tower Magazine Rack

Tower Magazine Rack
It's hard to get too excited by a magazine rack, unless having your current stack of books and magazines stacked up perfectly straight is exciting (no one is judging you, promise). A handle on this rack makes carting your stack from the living room to office or bedroom easy, which might just make you a more well-rounded reader. The simple, futuristic styling is pretty perfect.

Cloud High Back Sofa

Cloud High Back Sofa
Prepare yourself, for this high-backed sofa carries a high price tag. But you can understand why, can't you, especially when considering the feather and foam-filled cushions, slim steel legs, and tall, curved shell that envelopes you whenever you sit down to rest your weary feet. You're sure to find that this sofa provides a quiet spot for reading or watching movies (or napping), which is a valuable thing in any...Read more
