Phoenix Coat Rack

100 bucks for a strange thrown-together-stick-like coat stand seems like a fair deal, doesn't it?

Material: Powder coated steel Dimensions : width 20.1", depth 17.7", height 70.3", weight 11.9lbs...Read more

Weather Master Wall Clock

Whenever it rains (as it is now) the thought of a hygrometer comes to mind, as if I'd actually pay attention to the humidity levels. If you're more committed to understanding weather pattens than I, perhaps you'd use a combination thermometer and hygrometer wall clock? It's not water proof (pity), so do be careful about where you place it... perhaps a covered patio area or porch? There's also a few ...Read more

Like anyone else, I'm completely charmed by a full and well-organized bookcase. However, having a second stash of go-to or display books has an equally important role in a well decorated home.
