Moon Lamp

Moon Lamp
Do you need a moon lamp? Hmm, maybe you could justify the purchase if you plan to study the Moon’s craters, elevation and ridges for scientific research... or artistic inspiration?

Citronella by Fredericks and Mae

Hiline Lighting

Hiline Lighting
You can make your own deconstructed, utilitarian lighting, but will your attempt look as good as these Hiline pieces? And, while we're considering your skills, let's reflect on the price of the Hiline Spotlight, Sconce, and Pendant, and think about if it's worth the time and effort to make your own, or if it's best to just support someone else that's doing it right. I vote on the latter. The...Read more

The Abbott Stool

The Abbott Stool
This three-legged stool is comfortable in its nudity. Solid construction with tenon joints, shapely legs, and a slightly beveled top combine to make it easy on the eyes; it'd be a shame for it to hide any of its parts behind paint.

Duo and Pool Rug

Duo and Pool Rug
There's something special about irregular rugs. It's the unexpected shape, so different from the regular rectangle, that leads the eye around the rug's circumference and lends a sense of playfulness. Grain's Duo Rug combines two shapes to create one; each shape is composed of a different braiding technique, adding a subtle textural difference. And, if circles are your sort of thing, you may like the Pool Rug (below), as it...Read more

Bari Cheese Grater

Bari Cheese Grater
Spending close to $200 on a cheese grater may sound ridiculous, but then you've never seen how serious I am about cheese. This Bari Cheese Grater combines a grater with a serving dish; this cuts down on dishes needed, of course, but it also elevates your fresh parmesan into a proper experience. A glass lid keeps grated cheese fresh- that's no small thing if you're serious about your cheddar (haha)....Read more

Clouds Poster by Debbie Carlos

Clouds Poster by Debbie Carlos
Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's hard to find an interesting piece of art under $50. This Clouds Poster by Debbie Carlos is pretty much just what it looks like: an image of clouds printed on a plotter, which is a large format printer primarily used to produce architectural and engineering prints. The rougher image is made of a series of dots, just like images from newspapers or magazines....Read more

CoopDPS Cotton Blankets

CoopDPS Cotton Blankets
Blankets in July? WTF, right? Yeah, well, it's cold somewhere right now, and someone is going to want a soft, cozy throw to warm their toes. Plus, summer won't last forever, and these throws by ZigZagZurich (designed by Nathalie Du Pasquier & George Sowden, founder members of Memphis movement) are relatively inexpensive and very much pattern-fantastic. There's more available at CoopDPS, including duvet covers (!). So, go ahead, take a...Read more

Grip LED Torch Flashlight

Grip LED Torch Flashlight
Why not employ the same grips of the BMX bicycle to a flashlight? You don't want to drop it on your toes, after all, especially not in a dark, potentially scary room when there's no electricity.
