Swoop Storage Bag

Swoop Storage Bag
Sadly, the retailer (spoonsisters.com) we originally linked to when we posted this Swoop Storage Bag back in 2011 has closed its virtual doors. Not to worry, we found another place that carries it, with other colors and sizes, no less. With the thirtysomethings now having kids en masse, the complaint of toys taking over an entire home is more often heard than not. How in the world to curb this...Read more

Kiel Mead Brass Coasters

Kiel Mead Brass Coasters
Kiel Mead has the right idea of making the “mundane more precious.” If you're not afraid to go bold with brass coasters, then these four hand-sanded graphic coasters might be a subtle upgrade to whatever you're currently resting your cold drink upon (if you don't have coasters, then you either better not have nice furniture and/or be under the age of 30.) Semi-Circle, Slice, Triangle, and Cross; each $30. Materials:...Read more

Alfredo Carafe

Alfredo Carafe
The stopper on this carafe looks like it could double as a spinning top, though I suppose you would want to be rather careful about suggesting that to (childish) guests, as you'd not want it lost or damaged. That said, it'd be a lovely serving vessel for lemonade or juice for these last few days of summer. Designed by Alfredo Häberli for Georg Jensen. Size: 1 L Material: Glass, oak...Read more

Slow Chair & Ottoman

Slow Chair & Ottoman
Whenever I see the Slow Chair by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra, I am reminded of the Maison Flottante where the chair is shown prominently as the main living area seating. Would you believe that the inspiration behind the Slow Chair was ladies' tights? I'm sure you can, as the strong, precisely shaped knit is stretched over the metal frame, quite similar to a fitted stocking. This sling cover...Read more

Set Edition’s Chipboard Postcards

Set Edition’s Chipboard Postcards
A handwritten note is hard to beat, no matter how gifted you are at typing out a heartfelt message. I could go on and on to try and convince you to pick up a pen, but Set Edition's Chipboard Postcards will most likely do the job for me, as their simple graphics won't get in the way of your impressive (good or bad) handwriting. 100% recycled duplex chipboard postcard....Read more

CMYK Up Lamp

CMYK Up Lamp
What the what is going on with this CMYK Up Lamp? Dennis Parren has combined red, yellow, and blue LED bulbs to create an interesting mix of light. When the three primary colors are combined, you'll see a white light. However, when one of these color bulbs is blocked by the structural form of the lamp itself, then the other two combine to produce tertiary shadows (cyan, magenta, and yellowish...Read more

Slide Mirror

Slide Mirror
Sad news: it looks like there's not a retailer stateside that carries these mirrors anymore. Happy news: you can buy them directly from the designer, Sylvain Willenz. If you buy either of these mirrors, you might just have to get the Cuboid Doormat to continue the 3D illusion. Maybe add the Half a Table by Niels Van Eijk & Miriam Van der Lubbe and some seating from Acne for a...Read more

Chieftains Chair

Chieftains Chair
When we originally posted the Chieftains Chair designed by Finn Juhl, it was 2011 and it cost $11,500. Today's price finds it at $17,175, which, unfortunately, is much higher than the rate of inflation. And so goes the world of design classics and their price fluctuations. Inspired by primitive weaponry, Juhl originally created the chair for the 1949 Cabinetmakers’ Guild in Copenhagen. I've long admired this chair, and while the...Read more

Mirobolite Lamp

Mirobolite Lamp
Let's start the day off with a semi-expensive floor lamp. The Mirobolite has obvious influences from an ordinary task lamp, yet with its multiple joints and color options it becomes slightly extraordinary. 'Slightly' because the black and raw version don't entirely blow your socks off, however, if you're a little more daring in your color scheme, you might prefer the multicolor, which doesn't hold back with its palette one bit....Read more

Color Block Bookcase

Color Block Bookcase
I'm not one for too much color in my own home; grays, browns, and blacks are normally my choice of furnishings. That said, this Color Block Bookcase looks awfully tempting as a storage solution with its soft color palette of grey, powder blue, yellow and red/orange. At first glance, the shelves almost look like translucent glass, yet instead the color is hand-applied enamel poured over smooth, metal shelves. 35.25"Wx11.5"Dx47.5"H -Black...Read more

Dual-Action Watering Can

Dual-Action Watering Can
If you have a green thumb, you might appreciate this sculptural Dual-action Watering Can. A recess in the base allows for a firm hold while the stainless steel lid allows for pouring from a removable spout or showering from the perforated section, take your pick. Holding the can's neck instead of a handle is a bit more ergonomic too, which is a definite plus. Available in White or Black. Material:...Read more
