Steel Bookends

Bookends need not be fancy. Case in point, these utilitarian steel bookends from BOOK/SHOP. Perhaps they have the slightest flair with their "sporty side flanges" but really, those aren't frilly or even close to fancy, they're sporty, as the retailer states. Available in 3 powder-coated colors; Dark Grey, Light Grey, and Yellow. Back: 8 1/2H x 4"W Base: 6W x 5 5/8"D Made in the USA ...Read more

Wool Pouf by Ferm Living

This octahedral* pouf would add a little geometry to a space while providing a very comfortable place to rest one's weary feet. Never underestimate a good pouf or an ottoman, by the way, as they make a big difference in relaxation (as witnessed by multitudes who involuntarily emit a sigh of relief once placing their lower limbs on their own said pouf/ottoman). Back to the octahedron: this one is ...Read more

Izola Letter Opener

Combine a letter opener with a ruler? Sure, why not? Made from brass-plated alloy, one side has centimeter metrics with the slogan, 'Follow the rules.' The other side has inch metrics with the slogan, 'Break the rules.' Actually, it looks like that's opposite from the image shown, so be prepared for a flip flop of slogans. Regardless, it's always nice to see one tool with multiple functions. Constructed ...Read more

Toolbox by Arik Levy

Geo Stool

There's nothing like a big hunk of zinc to make you plunk down 800 bucks, especially when there's hexagons pentagons involved. That's probably an untrue statement, as you most likely wouldn't plunk down 800 bucks for much of anything, let alone a zinc stool, but the hexagons pentagons do make one a bit dizzy with design lust, as they would fit well in many a modern interior. -19" x 19" -zinc (Thanks Todd ...Read more

WC Line

Oh, the glamourous world of bath sets. Out of the many available in the marketplace, this is one of the least offensive, and dare I say, even pleasant to look at. Durable silicone combined with sturdy wood is quite practical, and, of course, makes it completely obvious as to their cleaning/storing function. The set ($125) includes a plunger, toilet brush and waste bin, or you can purchase items individually ($45-$55). ...Read more
