Monthly Sticky Note

For us visual planners, a small overview of the month is pretty necessary, and these sticky notes seem like they would accompany our weekly planner or notebook quite well. Each pad has 15 sheets showing an empty grid; quickly jot down the current month's dates and you'll have your calendar wherever you want it. (The price is almost negligible, so maybe you can add some other fun sticky notes to your ...Read more

Poet Stool

This Poet Stool by Misewell might be a tad expensive, but goodness, once you take a look at the construction, you begin to understand why. The three legs are connected to the seat by mortise and tenon joints, which, if you're not aware, is both a simple and strong joint that needs to be cut exactly to specification. Steel connects each leg, further strengthening the structure and providing a perfect ...Read more

tld desk

This desk brings to mind the Primary Desk by Nathan Yong, doesn't it? There's a vast difference in pricing/materials/craftsmanship, of course, but they share the same idea of a small upper storage shelf.

What is it?

Now, for another game of 'What is it?' Do you know? Can you guess? Hint: it is not a torture device, nor a strange sort of holder for a beverage. It was designed by Carl Mertens, who has designed all manner of steel accessories, and measures approximately 5 x 3 inches. Do you know now? Answer below.

Paulistano Armchair in Canvas

The Paulistano chair, now available in cotton canvas. Are you excited? Even a little bit? Because you should be.
