Teak Cheeseboard

Teak Cheeseboard

Here the holidays are, barreling down the road at us whether we like it or not. And I know what you're thinking, where will you put your fancy cheeses?

What will you give this holiday season? A bunch of presents, some of which will be successful and wonderful and others of which might just be ho-hum. Newsflash: you're not perfect.

Conrad Desk

Conrad Desk

A compact desk with a little storage is just what that disorganized corner of your home needs. Note that I used the word 'little' in conjunction with 'storage': this is a good thing. You don't need much more than the essentials, as clutter tends to multiply when left untended, so this Conrad Desk by Gus Modern will do the job efficiently without taking up too much room. And, hey, since ...Read more

Flip Around Stool/Table

Don't choose between a stool or a table- have both with the Flip Around. For use as a stool, the table's top post handle fits into the base for secure seating; for use as a catchall table top, simply flip the top over to utilize its curved lip to keep contents in their place.

Plunk Desk

Plunk Desk

Standing is better than sitting, blah, blah, blah… you've heard all about it, but you're not about to change out your favorite desk for some kind of wonky contraption that screws up your whole nicely-designed-house/office vibe. Plus, you work from lots of different places, so it might not even make much of a difference anyways. Am I right? Well, that's just where the Plunk Desk fits in. It's a ...Read more

DISH Plate Series

DISH Plate Series

Just for fun, let's take a look at the DISH Plate Series by the Patella Brothers. Each trompe l'oei design has a strange sort of narrative, and for that very reason I think most of us would vote to hang these plates on the wall as art rather than use them day in and day out. However, if you'd like your food to be presented alongside insects and other odd ...Read more
