Covet Desk

A glass top desk often appears sharp and sleek, but most lack drawers which can be a little annoying when it comes to desk miscellany. This desk has a drawer plus a storage solution built into its frame which solves that 'where-do-I-put-my-paperclips-and-files' question without sacrificing the clean look of a glass work surface. Available in Oak or Walnut. Design by Shin Azumi. By Case Furniture. Material(s): Oak, walnut Dimensions: 58.25" ...Read more

Nearest is Dearest Picture Frame Set

If you're still searching for a Valentine's Day gift, listen up. Unless you have the time to make something thoughtful (like your own valentine notebook), do not, I repeat, do not, resort to a heart shaped box of chocolates or fluffy teddy bear. It lacks all kinds of imagination and is just plain wrong. You can do better. Perhaps pick out a picture frame, or two, such as this Nearest ...Read more

Thermostatic Freestanding Shower

I'm in the midst of remodeling a 100 year old craftsman home, which means I'm pouring through several hundred design retailers in search of craftsman appropriate fixtures. Which also means I find fixtures that I love but are definitely not craftsman appropriate. This makes me cry a little inside. Here's a modern fixture that I would love to put in a home one day. It won't be this current one...but ...Read more

B&B Italia Leather Sectional Sofa by Afra Scarpa

I'm obsessing over 1970's vintage leather right now, and mainly this arose out of living with a man who is allergic to my cat. My wool Bottoni sofa is a virtual sponge for cat dander, and my poor boyfriend can't take it any longer. We looked at new leather--but if you buy a high quality piece it will cost about as much as a car. So, on to Ebay I ...Read more

Rustic Storage Console

I've been looking for a table for my entry for things like mail, keys and other remnants from a long day of work. At the time, I wasn't able to find anything, so I had something made by a local craftsman for under $300. It's a nice sturdy piece, but it doesn't have drawers, and that would definitely keep that area tidier than it is looking now. This piece by WestElm ...Read more
