Spectra Vases

Spectra Vases
Just how lovely are these glass nesting vases? So lovely that they're being reshuffled to an updated post for today, as the link and price have changed. Pastels can sometimes look a bit boring, but these shades are quite beautiful. And, did you know that these colors are the same formulas as the original glass first made at Holmegaard back in 1839? Antique colors for a modern design... nice. Mouth...Read more

Prouvé Standard SP Chair

Prouvé Standard SP Chair
Fans of Prouvé are familiar with the high price tags associated with the name, and that's exactly why everyone should sit up and pay attention to this version of the original Standard Chair. Notice the 'SP' in Prouvé Standard SP Chair? That, my dear, indicates 'Siège en Plastique' which means an ASA plastic seat and back.

Electric Paint Pen

Electric Paint Pen
That's right, it's an electric paint pen. It's completely safe, as the electrically conductive paint is formatted to be non-toxic, solvent-free, and water-soluble, and only becomes conductive when dry. And what would you use this pen for? If you're especially handy, you could repair devices, draw circuits on all sorts of materials, solder stuff... you fill in the rest. The paint dries after five minutes and can be removed with...Read more

Rigby Media Console

Rigby Media Console
What's that price tag doing on such a modern media console? And it can be mounted directly on the wall without the base, thus bringing the price down to $999? Hmm, perhaps we need to consider where it could live in our own homes. I especially like the option of the wall mount version, as it could be hung at any height and do the job of an entryway console...Read more
