Eva Solo’s Hurricane Lamp

Have you sorted out your outdoor lighting situation yet? If not, do consider this hurricane lamp from Eva Solo. Two small but important details: it has a silicone base to make removing any wax easy (simply bend the base) and a hole at the bottom to let in air to reduce sooting. Use the handle to suspend from trees or do without for a simpler look on tables and floors. ...Read more

Torch T1 Illuminated Bicycle Helmet

The Torch T1 helmet is an urban styled bicycle helmet with integrated lights. LEDs are projected onto the wide lenses which disperses the light across the entire surface, creating increased visibility and brighter light from wider viewing angles. The T1 is currently in a Kickstarter funding campaign. An $80 pledge will get you a helmet in red, black, or white, or for $100 you can nab yourself the special Midnight Edition, which ...Read more

Triangle Notebook

Update: Remember this guy? MoMA has it in stock again, with a slight modification to its branding (now it says 'MoMA Triangle Notebook'). I'm not quite sure how a triangular shape notebook would benefit those of us that like notebooks, other than for novelty's sake, but maybe that's reason enough. (For example, I thought I'd skip posting this, but I kept coming back to it.) This notebook belongs to MoMA's ...Read more

Rockport and Scottsdale Croquet Set

Do you know just how many croquet sets are available online? Hundreds, to say the least. I've no idea which set is the best to steer you towards, but I do like the look of the ones from The North Meadow. The Rockport 4 Player Set is $124, while the Scottsdale 6 Player Croquet Set is $185. Not inexpensive, but if you're looking something that will last, they'll most likely be better than the ...Read more

Multi-Tool

Now, don't get too excited, this isn't the sort of thing you'd carry around in your pocket. It's a bit big for that, unless you've huge pockets, and it's probably more suited for your bag than carrying it around in its nylon carrying case on your belt loop (or maybe you can pull that look off, who knows). The Multi-Tool has "a hammer, adjustable wrench, pliers, wire cutter, file, blades, ...Read more

Cork Tray

It's a cork tray. You might think it's a little ho-hum/boring, but I'd wager a guess it would be entirely useful when it comes to shuttling things back and forth from the kitchen to table (or sofa, if that's your preferred spot). Cork is renewable and recyclable, as you know, but the main function here is that it would keep your cups of tea/biscuits/etc. from sliding around ...Read more

Kitchen Remodel

If you've never completed a kitchen remodel, you and I had something in common 7 weeks ago. Fast forward to last week, to my mostly new kitchen (shown above) which sports white shiny cabinets, an almost white Silestone countertop and an off white porcelain backsplash. White, white, white. If you're curious as to how the project progressed, you'll find more pictures and commentary below. The 'before' photo. There wasn't anything wrong ...Read more
