The 'maybe' mirror is for all the times in between. A small keyhole is milled into the back for easy hanging on a screw. Hardware included. Designed By Chen Chen And Kai ...Read more

Fort Standard Oak Coat Hooks

Fort Standard Oak Coat Hooks

If you're thinking that these coat hooks look a lot like other circular coat hooks you've seen here and there, you'd be right. However, the best thing about these (other than their faceted edges) is that they come in three different sizes, in sets of 2, 3, and 4. All of the sets are the same price, which means you just have to decide on one thing: what size (and number) of hooks ...Read more

Medamade Oil Dispenser

Medamade Oil Dispenser

Oil is a finicky liquid; it really likes to escape its container at every opportunity. What to do? Get a better container, that's what. The Medamade Oil Dispenser has a handy stainless steel lid that opens with gravity, thus keeping your fingers (and the dispenser's sides) oil free. You'll also learn a little science along with your salad, as the molecular structure of olive oil adorns the borosilicate glass. Designed ...Read more

Do we or do we not all need a couple of extra storage containers? The Hough Storage Vessels will hold all those annoyingly tiny things out of sight, thanks to their natural cork and rubber lids.

Well Planter and Babylon Light

Well Planter and Babylon Light

Question: How much do you want a light fixture that is also a planter? Answer: a) sort of a lot b) it'd be nice c) give it to me now. I'm wavering between a and b, because if plants were at eye level, I'd be less likely to forget to water them. You, however, would probably be ace at your plant care, and would therefore have a beautiful, thriving plant (...Read more
