Magda Bookshelf

Interesting. This bookshelf is basically one steel tube with one central support, a little different from the usual two-bracket-one-flat-shelf idea, isn't it? It's stated that no tools are needed, but seeing as there screws in the picture, you might want to have a Phillips screwdriver handy. Manufactured by Quattria. Painted steel tube with ends of lathed beechwood. Dimensions: W:20″ D:5.1″ H:7.5″ Designed by Project Artik. ...Read more

Shayk Pendant Light

Say what you will about synthetic paper, but don't knock its affordability in the lighting department. Designer Amanda Betz was inspired by the Sheikh Lutf Allah Mosque in Isfahan, Iran, and, as you can see, she created a honeycomb-like pattern to mimic the design on the mosque's dome. Be sure to take a look at the shadows cast by this light, for you'll not be short on ambience if you ...Read more

Kobenstyle Casserole

It's safe to say I've not cooked anything complicated, much less anything involving the word 'casserole', yet I'm certainly drawn to this bold red dish designed by Jens Quistgard. The handle design seems almost too (dare I say) pretty, but the weld points actually limit heat transfer. The lid can also be inverted for use as a trivet. And can you guess when it was designed? Was it a: 1923, b: 1956, ...Read more

Walnut Wire Side Table

This price is right for this side table, especially considering the style and materials. The warm walnut top balances out the cool copper wire base, and the size is just about perfect for a table lamp and a few odds and ends. The top is removable should you want to store something in the base, though who knows what that might look like. Might be better to leave it as is. ...Read more

Fill-in-the-Blanks Bookplates

Bookplates! Maybe not that exciting if you've fully abandoned paper pages, but if you still harbor a love for the old fashioned tome, you might just like to have a few blank bookplates on hand. Keep track of the place/date you bought the book, inscribe a special sentiment before giving as a gift, or, as I might do, write in your name so the book will eventually find its ...Read more

Aluminum Eiffel Stool

First off, the $150 price is for the kid-sized version, but, that said, $225 isn't too bad of a price for an aluminium (or, as us Americans would say, aluminum) stacking stool. The Eiffel stool can easily live indoors or out, and do check out the image below of the stools stacked 5 high (space saving!), and see if that doesn't impress you the tiniest bit more. The Eiffel stool weighs 2kg (4.4lb). ...Read more
