Penelope Lounge Chair

Penelope Lounge Chair
It seems like outdoor furniture is either really nice and super expensive or pretty cheap and not great quality. The Penelope Lounge Chair seems to fit comfortably in between those two extremes, as it is made from a powder-coated steel frame with handwoven waterproof plastic as its seat and back. Hairpin legs and a wide seat add modern styling to the otherwise minimal design. It's stackable, too. Material: Xiloplast weave...Read more

Beau Pendant Light

Beau Pendant Light
David Trubridge is well known for his puzzle-like, open-weave light fixtures. With the new Beau Pendant, the same overlapping segment idea is used to direct light downwards, hiding the light source. The light is flat-packed, keeping with the company’s longstanding eco-conscious aim, and is available in a natural, caramel, or black stain. Small: 11" h x 24" w x 24" d (28x60x60cm) Large: 14" h x 30" w x 30"...Read more

Knockout Side Tables

Knockout Side Tables
Simplistic side tables always get my vote, but these cross over into the minimalistic category, which has me making imaginary placards in their honor. They're just so serious, and would be especially great next to a silly chair or sofa (you know the term: juxtaposition). With several shaped bases in solid white marble, black marble, or green Swedish marble, you'll have to consider a cluster (if you can afford it)...Read more

Skultuna Basso Coaster

Skultuna Basso Coaster
No more wine or champagne drips on your precious tabletop, because this Skultuna Basso Coaster will set the bottle dead center each and every time, thanks to its raised center surface. Did you know that indentation at the bottom of bottles is known as a punt or kick-up? Good luck trying to fit that into a conversation without appearing like a complete nerd.

Wire Planters by Norm Architects

Wire Planters by Norm Architects
If things feel dull and dreary in a room, perhaps you need a plant or two. Plants are excellent for purifying the air and they give a much needed dose of nature (and texture) into boring rooms. The new-ish Wire Planters by Norm Architects elevate plants at varying heights, which makes things more interesting and, well, more natural. Designers: Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn of Norm Architects All sizes include...Read more

Aqua Sink Drainer Basket

Aqua Sink Drainer Basket
Sometimes a dish drainer is unavoidable. Instead of settling for the normal/terrible options at the local big box store, please do consider this rather simple plastic option. Use it in the sink for soaking (saves water) and then set it up on the counter to drain (the drain may be repositioned in order to fit your particular layout). Available in red, black, white, olive. Japanese designed, made in China. Measures...Read more

Harris Sofa by Montauk

Harris Sofa by Montauk
Sofas are the most important of furnishings, right up there with mattresses. After all, we spend lots of time on our sofas- reading, watching shows and movies, sleeping. So, you might as well invest in something you really, truly love, right? For a recent project I looked and looked for the right sofa: it needed to be at least 8' long, low, streamlined and soft. As in, take-a-nap-on-it soft. As...Read more

Maybe with both the cutting board and brush you'll be more inclined to fit those fruits and veggies into your daily meal planning. It's worth a shot.

Ada Sconce

Ada Sconce
The Ada Sconce is a versatile little light, for its shade is made of two adjustable reflectors on friction hinges. This means you can move the shades around in many different ways to direct the light exactly where you wish. Fans of Charlotte Perriand might recognize a little of her CP-1 Sconce in this design, as this light was inspired by that exact design. And, another nice tidbit: the Ada...Read more
