Vitra Tip Ton Chair

Vitra Tip Ton Chair
This solid plastic chair has a forward-tilt action that will help your health apparently: it straightens the pelvis and spine and thus improves circulation to the abdominal and back muscles. Whether that influences your decision to buy one, many, or none at all, I do have to say it has a nice silhouette that would work well in a dining room or office area. Plus, it's stackable and comes in...Read more

Libratone’s Loop Wireless Speaker

Libratone’s Loop Wireless Speaker
There's a never ending stream of new wireless speakers, and we'll all just have to deal with it, whether we're still searching for the perfect audio experience or have respectfully decided to be happy with what we've got. I belong to the latter group, so it's hard to get too excited by any wireless speaker nowadays, but this Loop Wireless Speaker is slim, round, and has changeable wool covers, which...Read more

Piani Table Lamp

Piani Table Lamp
Perhaps with your keen design eye you've guessed that the Bouroullec brothers have something to do with this cute little lamp; you'd be right, of course. With rather petite dimensions and a lower base tray- perfect for those little things like keys and coins- this lamp would do well in an entrance hall or small desk area. And, for what it's worth, I ended up purchasing a green Piani Lamp...Read more

Countdown Clock

Countdown Clock
I'm sure there's not a lot of these in stock, and considering the sale price of $50 (reg.$145.00) it'll be sold out sooner than you can say 'how many days until my next vacation' two hundred times fast. So, how many days until your next vacation? If you had this clock you would know, as it has a specific countdown and a place to note the event. So, no more...Read more

Axial Mini Messenger

Axial Mini Messenger
This bag toes the line between man-purse and messenger bag, and that's its exact magic. No need to carry a bag bigger than you need, after all, and you just look like a dork when you stuff too much stuff in your pockets. Just in case you had a fleeting thought that involved a belt bag (a.k.a. fanny pack) as a solution, let's just clear things up: yes, you will...Read more

Knork

Knork
Spork, knoon, fife, knork. Only two of these things exist as far as I know, and I give you two guesses to pick the other one (other than the Spork, of course). It's the Knork, as you could probably tell from the title and the picture, and it's a combination knife/fork. I don't know how well it works, but you can find out with $5. Could be worth every penny...Read more

Rensselaer Single Sconce

Rensselaer Single Sconce
"She blinded me with science!"... that song will immediately spring to mind each time you walk by this wall sconce, for how could it not when it's made from real chemistry lab supplies? And, shall we take a moment to admire how the look may change depending on the finish, cord color, and bulb you choose? Note: you might be a little sick of Edison bulbs, because they seem to...Read more

Clip Clip by HAY

Clip Clip by HAY
It's always smart to have a clip or two on hand. Why? Maybe to keep your shirt closed after pretending to be the Incredible Hulk, or maybe to keep your nose from smelling your coworker (those strong, semi-jagged teeth on the clip's edge will keep your nostrils shut tight, even when you move around the office! or break into a dance!). Or, maybe, and I know this is crazy, you...Read more

‘Errare’ Eraser

‘Errare’ Eraser
For those days when you really screw up, pick up this eraser and read the notable latin phrase aloud: "Errare humanum est." That translates into 'To err is human' if you hadn't guessed, and will make you feel just a tiny bit better about whatever mess you made. On a side note, you might as well get several, and give them away one by one to friends/coworkers when they need...Read more

Stone Chopping Board

Stone Chopping Board
This looks way too nice to use as a chopping board, doesn't it? White Morwad marble provides a durable surface for dinner prep and serving while the delicate brass saucer is the perfect spot for dips or other special fare. And, if you like the look of the marble and brass, you'll want to consider the Stone Spice Grinder (shown below) and Stone Pestle And Mortar by Tom Dixon as...Read more

QBS

QBS
A box is just a box, unless it's a perfectly square, 17" box with Rift white oak or walnut veneers and lacquered sides. That kind of box, in this case called the QBS, you can use as an end table, bedside table, or group several together as a coffee/cocktail table. Are you picking up what I'm putting down here? Also available with white lacquer, from MDRN. QBS are sold individually...Read more

Nest Protect

Nest Protect
Smoke alarms are a far from exciting, and really, most of us forget about them completely until they start chirping because a battery needs to be changed. Well, just as Nest improved the thermostat, they now aim to improve the smoke alarm, with a carbon monoxide alarm thrown in as well. The Nest Protect will give you an early warning telling you where the danger might be, and, if it's...Read more
