Tool Bookmark byAMT

If you still turn paper pages, you might just need a bookmark like these brass tabs by Alissia Melka-Teichroew (byAMT). One brass bookmark says 'PAGE' and the other 'WORD' so you'll be able to mark your spot with precision. This set of 2 bookmarks were re-designed in 2014 exclusively for the Shop Cooper Hewitt in conjunction with the Cooper Hewitt's exhibition Tools: Extending our Reach.

Brick Lamp

This lamp is reduced down to a simple brick shape with no switch or cord. How do you turn it off? With magic! Just kidding, it's nothing that mysterious, you just lay it flat. The concept of concealing and revealing is at work here, with the light turning on when you raise it onto its side. The side facets work as handles as well as creating a sturdy base with ...Read more

Sweep-It Set

You don't have to tell me how hard it is to keep dust and dirt at bay; I have a dog that likes to step in mud at every opportunity, plus a cat that sheds fur all the effing time. I have Ole Jensen's Dustpan and Brush, but this Sweep-It Set by Klaus Rath for Stelton looks like it would be more functional for everyday messes. The lotus wood brush ...Read more

Superfront Legs

You might have heard of Superfront, but did you know they have legs that fit Ikea's mattress bases? And those legs can be shipped to North America? That means you can get a sharp look for a whole lot less than buying a regular bed from a decent retailer. There's five leg styles to choose from in lots of different colors, so have some fun and play around with what ...Read more

Leoht Tote

A handbag? I know, I know, we don't normally post handbags, but stick with me here, because this particular one has something that's worth talking about. It may not be enough to convince you (or the others around you) to abandon your (their) current It Bag, but it does offer some pretty cool technology that we're hoping will soon catch on when it comes to luxury brands. The Leoht Tote ...Read more

Clothes Rack by Ferm Living

Would you like an alternate version of this other clothing rail ($399) we posted a while ago? Well, Ferm Living has a rather similar idea in the clothes rack you see above. An iron rod hangs from the ceiling by harness leather belts, so there's a material/textural difference- a nice touch, don't you think? Your wallet will be happy that it's less expensive than the other one, and your clothes ...Read more

Neon Mfg. Signs

What if neon signs were more affordable? Maybe you would snap one up faster than you could say 'do i really need one' or maybe you couldn't care less. Either way, some of us like that neon glow, and will spend the next few minutes contemplating just what word or short saying we'd most like to see each and every day, and then we'll be happy that we could order ...Read more

Senz Windproof Umbrella

In preparation for the upcoming April showers, let's ask ourselves this: do we have a decent umbrella? And, by 'decent' I mean one that won't upturn at a gust of wind, nor frustrate us with its finicky folding/unfolding. Yep, it's just as I thought. Most of us could use an upgrade to a Senz Windproof Umbrella. The Senz has an aerodynamic shape that resists winds of up to 62 miles ...Read more

Wald Plug Lamp

The Wald Plug Lamp is a floor lamp without the floor. Huh? It plugs directly into a wall socket, using the plug connection as its sole support. So, technically, I suppose it's actually a wall light, but we'll accept the categorization of a floor lamp because of its height. Might I point out how much easier this would be to install than a wall sconce? It could be a clever ...Read more

Ito Bindery Drawing Pads

How can a drawing pad be beautiful? Just look at the perfectly straight edges, the coal-black (and recycled) cardboard backing, the geometric proportions, and the satin-smooth paper of the Ito Bindery Drawing Pads. And, of course, the lack of any apparent branding. A little too precious for the average note-taker? Perhaps, but that doesn't stop me from wanting a stack of these pads on my desk pronto. Let's toss out ...Read more

Do you want to look like you're on a some sort of urban military mission? That's what I think of when I see Black Ember Modular Urban Backpacks and the various mag-lock pouches and accessories that may be added.
