The Frame TV

The Frame TV
Who loves that the TV is being reconsidered as art? I sure do. There's the Serif TV, an excellent option by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, and now there's this one, The Frame. It transforms into a piece of art when you're not watching a show or movie, making it blend into your home's decor. A TV that doesn't look like a TV? Sign me up. How 'real' does it look?...Read more

Portside Lounger

Portside Lounger
Is it just me, or does this seem like one heck of a deal? Finding outdoor loungers that are comfortable on the backside and easy on the eyes can be a daunting task for someone that appreciates a pared-down approach, so seeing a less-than-$400 option is a nice surprise. This lounger is made from sustainably sourced wood and features Textilene® fabric for extra breathability. Plus, it's on sale, which makes...Read more

Lands Rug

Lands Rug
Do you see the aerial landscape inspiration in this rug from Grain? There's a little hint of crop circles, of course, but the overall shape is what sets this rug apart from its very rectangular siblings in the retail world. And, if you'd prefer a less neutral colorway, the braided wool rug may be ordered in custom sizes, colors, and materials. Handmade in New England by a mill with 30...Read more

MagLock Sunglasses

MagLock Sunglasses
Oh, this is such a smart idea, and I hope it starts a trend. The MagLock Sunglasses have magnets embedded into their frame so that they 'clip' onto your shirt instead of falling off. No more worrying about losing your shades! No more scratched lenses! Wonderful, right? The magnets also mean you can attach the frames to any magnetic surface (even a thumbtack). Here's hoping they expand the frame selection...Read more

Panobook Notebook

Panobook Notebook
Picky about notebooks? Me too, and I just bought/backed the Panobook, a notebook intended for your desk. What's so special about it? Well, it has a panoramic format (160 mm x 288 mm) that fits nicely in front of or next to your keyboard. A subtle dot grid lets you draw layouts easily (most prominently, three 16:9 boxes or quadrants) and a slip case is included for storage. Nice! Each...Read more

Collet Corkscrew

Collet Corkscrew
Yes, this does look like a tool for a spaceship, but it's even better (because you don't have a spaceship). It's a bottle opener that conceals a corkscrew. That's right, two tools in one, shiny, solid bar of brass that'll look just fine left out on the counter or tabletop, if you so desire. It may be a good gift for someone special, so bookmark it for the future. Dimensions:...Read more

Monument Bookend

Monument Bookend
The Monument Bookend by Chen Chen & Kai Williams will keep any books in place, thanks to the heft of Italian White Carrara marble. The triangular shape will fit right into any geometry fan's aesthetic ideal while the neoprene under the bookend's base will protect the surface of any tabletop, desk or shelf. Super minimal and very sleek, I'd think many a modernist would be happy to receive this as...Read more

It's cute, right? Available in white, blush, misty blue, or midnight blue, the Cap Table Lamp has an adjustable shade on a small, cylindrical base.

Could be. Take a look at...Read more

Plus, they'll stack and store neatly away when not in use. Both pieces are finished with a food safe, homemade all-natural mix of beeswax and oil (a small tin of the wood balm is included).
