Stone Shelf

If you don't need a small-ish shelf, then good for you. For the rest of us, we could probably use a small perch to set our phone and/or keys when we walk in the door, or as a diminutive ledge for the bathroom or bedside for our watches and jewelry. This one from Fort Standard is made of marble, which adds an extra ounce (or ounces, as the case ...Read more

Constellation Tea Towels

Tea towels are so much better than paper towels, at least for the simple spills in the kitchen.

Constellations + tea towels = yes. (And 40% off today only from the retailer!) 100% cotton tea towel with silver ...Read more
