Grid Planks by Daphna Laurens

The lines on the Grid Planks by Daphna Laurens would certainly tempt you to arrange food precisely along the perfectly ordered grid, for at least the first few moments of food prep anyways. After that, your sanity might be questioned. Consider the smooth side for cutting, and keep the grid side pristine for serving. Designed by Daphna Laurens Material: Beech Wood Dimensions: Small 11.75 x 11.5 x 1.5 in / 29.8 x 29 x 3.8 cm, Medium 15.75 ...Read more

Dalu Table Lamp

The diminutive Dalu Table Lamp won't be the biggest light in the house, and that is exactly its charm. It's just over 10 inches tall, so it's perfect for beside the bed or tucked into a dark corner for just a bit of illumination. You might recognize a sixties era sort of vibe, and you'd be spot on, as this is a re-edition of the original designed in (drumroll) the sixties. ...Read more

Hook Basket by Pinetti

Do you like these Hook Baskets from Pinetti? Because they like you too, and want to be seen somewhere in your home. Maybe in the living area for the kid's toys? Or for keeping your collection of cashmere throws at hand? Perhaps that sounds a little silly, but, let's face it, you're not going to plonk down $375+ for a basket only to shove it in some closet for your dirty ...Read more

Ping Pong Cocktail Trays

See these paddle-shaped, melamine cocktail trays? They're for your guests, so they can stand around and comfortably hold their plate piled high with hors d'oeuvres while shaking hands and sipping drinks. Their thumb goes through the hole for firm grip, and that little detail decreases the likelihood of someone spilling something that will stain your rug. And, yes, who knows, maybe an impromptu game of Ping Pong will break out ...Read more

Menu Grow Pot with Wooden Board

More plant-related paraphernalia for you, but this time the item on show is specifically for the herbs or flowers kept indoors on a windowsill. Set off by an oak plank base, the dark terracotta planter pot will contrast nicely with a small bouquet or your favorite herbs or sprouts without disrupting the clean/minimal vibe you've got going on in the rest of your house.

Water Bulb by Anderssen & Voll for Mjolk

Here's a prettier water bulb for your plants, but it'll cost you a teensy bit more than some of the other options out there. Okay, maybe a lot more, but this one is more of an art object than some ol' watering bulb you'll throw out when you get sick of it, and that explains the price tag. Each one is mouth-blown and hand shaped by glass artist Gregor Herman, ...Read more

Clug Clip Hanging Bike Rack

Please don't attach your bike to a rock. You could, though, judging by Clug's main hero shot, shown above, which gives you an idea of its function and strength. I actually purchased two Clugs when it was a Kickstarter campaign, and now our two bikes are stored orderly in our entry way, and not looking like two drunken hobos crashed crazily against the wall. The Clug Clip all but disappears ...Read more

Copper Chemistry Carafe and Glasses

A little copper makes a big difference in this drinkware set. The copper bands wrapped around each piece are like cummerbunds; it's pretty obvious someone's dressed up for a fancy occasion. And, just like a cummerbund, the copper band could be kept on all the time for a dressier look, or you could take it off to bathe put the set in the dishwasher or go for a more casual ...Read more

Triada Blocks

When the summer laziness hits you, you'd better take a break and do something different. Like, say, play with some three-pronged blocks. Many grownups see blocks as a toy meant purely for the playroom, but others know a pile of wooden blocks can be just as useful on a desk or in an office break room. So, buy a set for yourself or buy a set for some little ones, ...Read more

Upcycled T-Shirt Lampshade Kit

Yes, the Bowie image makes this Upcycled T-Shirt Lampshade Kit way more appealing than it probably is, but you could possibly have some fun with this, especially if you have a t-shirt that you never wear but refuse to donate. Or, might this might be a great project for a favorite kid during these long summer days? Just make sure they use their own t-shirts instead of your prized concert ...Read more

Ceylon Pitcher

Regular water is so offensive. Personally, I only drink lemon-infused water or cucumber-mint water. That's a big fat fib, but I certainly could drink my water that way every single day if this pitcher was in my fridge. Iced tea or fruit infused water is super easy to make and have on hand with the Ceylon Pitcher. The removable filter allows for easy separation of leaves or fruit and the ...Read more

Easy To Strain Bowl by Ryann Aoukar

You do rinse your fruits and vegetables, don't you? There's no telling who sneezed on it, after all, and there's always a chance that some creepy crawly bug has hitched a ride, unbeknownst to us all. But it wastes so much water, you say. I know, I know. The Easy To Strain Bowl by Ryann Aoukar will help with that, as it has a spout/handle that makes draining easy- ...Read more
