Pi Glassware

As the retailer says, "Mix your drinks with a bit of math." Just don't start the conversation off by asking people if they've memorized the first hundred digits, because that's a bit of a turn off.

Sfelt Table

Here's a relatively simple idea executed well: a removable felt wrap protects the table's surface from feet, drinks, laptops, etc. The handier among us might replicate this idea on our own coffee tables, but don't discount the table under the smart felt idea just yet. It's solid walnut with nicely curved TIG-welded steel legs, so it'll stand the test of time while easily living up to its name. Solid walnut ...Read more

Cord Chandelier

Do you want a large chandelier? Are you looking to spend around $2,000? If you are nodding your head to both of those questions, please do take a look at this Cord Chandelier from Brendan Ravenhill. It's a tensegrity structure (full definition here), which, in this case, roughly means the constant tension of the arms and electrical wires allow for the radiating design.
