Cork Family

Lest we forget, Jasper Morrison's Cork Family is a smart choice for any living area. Each piece could be a side table or stool and is light enough to move around easily.

Pepper Salt Stones

Modern tabletop accessories can often fall into the angular camp. There's nothing wrong with that, of course, it's just that sometimes it's nice to have more rounded, organic shapes to offset all the sharp corners we deal with on a daily basis. These stone-shaped salt and pepper holders look like real stones found at the waterside and one could assume their smooth surface would be nice to hold/use. Designers: ...Read more
