Desktop Series by Another Country

Another Country has some lovely furniture, for sure, but have you seen these desk accessories? The smaller items have just as much thoughtful function and considered style as the furniture pieces, and, dare I say, it's hard to go wrong with that particular brand of consistency. There's a tall Pencil Pot, a Sharpener Pot (for pencil shavings), a Tape Dispenser, and an Eraser Pot with an actual eraser as its ...Read more

October the 1st already! And do you have your 2013 calendar yet?

Ping-Pong Conference Table

Brilliant! Now your conference table can also be a ping-pong table, thus saving space and encouraging 'fun' breaks for you and your team. The central panel either functions as the ping-pong net support or as a hide-away cable management, while drawers at either end house all the ping-pong (or meeting) supplies. How is this not a good idea? Powder-coated White tubular steel construction Includes ping-pong paddles, net, and balls oh ...Read more

ReFleece iPad Sleeve

Every single case is made in the US from recycled materials that are sourced locally. There's also a ReFleece Kindle Cover ($25, shown ...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. Custom sizing is also available, with a lead ...Read more

Faraday Porteur Bicycle

Clunky batteries, impractical, and just plain ugly are words that come to mind when the words "electric bicycle" come up. However, as urban bicycle ridership increases, bicycle manufacturers such as new start-up Farady are addressing these issues. Their flagship bicycle, the Porteur, is their first offering. It starts with a US-made steel frame with time-tested geometry. Safety and practicality are built-in with a removable front rack, integrated lights, wood fenders, ...Read more

WASARA Bamboo Utensils

We all know plastic cutlery is super cheap, but we also know it's not very durable and certainly not very nice to look at. Maybe there's an alternative? An alternative that perhaps is both beautiful and compostable? Meet the WASARA Bamboo Utensils. These utensils accompany the WASARA tableware collection, and, similarly, are intended for single-use occasions (think picnics, parties, etc.). Each one securely attaches to the edge of a WASARA ...Read more

Emu Ivy Pouf

What's so special about an upside down wire basket? Well, for starters, it's not an upside down wire basket: it's a seat/ottoman/side table and light. The small grey bar on the top is a solar panel, and that solar panel fuels the five LED lights that illuminate the under table at night. A webbed nylon loop on the side makes moving it around your lawn (or patio) a ...Read more

OW150 Daybed

Let's just pretend that we have space for a daybed, and budget enough to not blink an eye at the price tag of the OW150. Any guess as to who the designer is? Put your deerstalker hat on and connect the dots: OW150 = OW = Ole Wanscher. Ole Wanscher, whose furniture "exudes underplayed elegance and is it timeless, classic and thoroughly modern at one and the same time." The bottom/seat ...Read more
