Index Collection Tea Towels

If you're interested in color theory, have I got the tea towels for you. Raw Color has created a series of tea towels that explore concepts from graphic design in woven form. From 10% to 100% intensity, each box of color appears to be printed on as a sort of large scale screen key (those little boxes on the sides of printed fabrics), yet each is expressed by altering the fabric weave. ...Read more

On a Roll Tape Dispenser

A tape dispenser is rarely described as anything other than just plain (snore) useful, but black + blum have certainly put their brains to use in creating one that is decidedly better than above average- and that translates into pretty damn good. Yep, you read it right, that's a 'damn' in front of a 'good' and I'm talking about a tape dispenser. Gravity removes the need for a separate spindle and ...Read more

3 Leg Table

You won't like the price tag, but you will probably grow to like- or even love- Wrk-shp's 3 Leg Table. It's a little quirky but also entirely minimal and simple in its approach to providing a surface and a light. Three steel legs, one of which houses the fabric covered cord of the light fixture, balance the console-sized wood top, resulting in a perfect piece to live in an entryway or ...Read more

NYC Transit Kerchief

Maybe you have the NYC Subway map memorized, and, if so, good for you. The rest of us rely on our smart phones when we're in the city, and, oh, the horror when our battery dies and there's not a reliable map to be found street side. If we had a NYC Transit Kerchief (or a Crumpled City Map), we could pull it out of our bag or pocket and ...Read more

Corner Hanging Bar

What is this, you ask? It's a Corner Hanging Bar, and it has come to rescue that pile of clothes on the floor. Now, this might be handier to have during the winter months, as there are all sorts of scarves and coats and such that seemingly multiply without so much as a second glance, but summer has its array of accessories as well. And, if you need some extra ...Read more

Plum Cocktail Shaker

Let's be honest: some of Tom Dixon's products look like they should be on the altar of some strange, futuristic church (Cog Candelabra) or else an excellent receptacle for cremains (Beat Vessel). That might sound a little morbid or serious, but I mean it as a compliment. For instance, the Plum Cocktail Shaker could easily live in some sacred place with its bright copper plating. However, considering its purpose, best ...Read more

Smash Cup

You can plan to donate or recycle your big travel mug, because you won't need it once the Smash Cup ships in October. But you love your travel mug, don't you? Well, is your mug collapsible and highly portable? No? I thought so. The Smash Cup is a reusable cup that can be 'smashed' down after you've finished your coffee/tea. Fun, right? It's leak-proof, so you can stuff it ...Read more

Peg Board

The old peg board: we all know it has its usefulness, but it could stand for a makeover. That's the thought behind Human Crafted's Peg Board. Made by hand from machined walnut, each board also comes with a bungee cord, which gives the board various storage functions. Choose a few accessory hooks and you have more possible customizations for specific items (kitchen tools, keys, etc.). Combine all three sizes for ...Read more

Funnell – EJECT | WEAR

You know when you're riding your bike or walking on the street and all of the sudden it starts to rain? You have to stop, get out your rain gear- if you have it- and put it on, then pedal or walk to your destination partially soaked, which is really no fun at all. That's exactly where this backpack comes into play. A jacket ejects out of the backpack quickly (...Read more

Handy Gold Caddy

If you're going to have anything on your desk or dining table called a 'caddy' you might as well make it gold, or gold-plated, at least. A black pine handle shows off the oh-so-shiny gold, and it could hold your mail, pens and notepads just as easily as flatware and napkins. Less is usually more, so don't go overboard with other gold accessories. You don't want to blind coworkers or ...Read more

Reclaimed Wood Tree Swing

Do you see the size of this Reclaimed Wood Tree Swing? Sure, there's a little kid in the photo, but it's still pretty sturdy in terms of length, width, and depth. Made from salvaged antique flooring, this swing from Peg and Awl has a vintage look that will fit in any backyard, especially when hung from a large tree branch. Natural tung oil keeps the seat water resistant and a ...Read more

Cross, Hex, and Tri Pendants

If money was not a concern, I'm sure many of us would opt for one of these pendants designed by Resident Studio. Aluminum or brass channels have LEDs hidden inside to keep the shape extremely clean and sculptural. The results are a group of light fixtures that double as art objects; each could provide a modern contrast with more traditional interiors or fit in easily with similarly minimal/modern furnishings. ...Read more

Perimeter Tray

I know, a serving tray is not on the top of your list on this Monday morning after the holiday weekend. I wouldn't care much either, except it's the Perimeter Tray, and if you remember from our previous post last year, it normally retails for $195. And now MoMA Store has it on sale for $139.95 ($125.95 members). That's a price that one could afford for a nice tray made of reclaimed walnut ...Read more
