Rosenthal Sugar and Creamer

Do you have a proper sugar and creamer set? Not the end of the world if you don't, of course, but it's something to consider if you use sugar and cream/milk consistently in your coffee or tea. It lends an air of civility, sure, but there's something about enjoying the small pleasures and ceremonies of daily life and taking care to surround yourself with things that are both useful ...Read more

JACK Table Legs

Table legs sold separately are always a good bet as you're able to change out the surface to whatever suits your fancy. Plywood, wood, stone, glass, you name it, you can alter your desk/work top to whatever you want. These JACK table legs were named after the game jacks (reference there for you young things that have no idea) and will look excellent with whichever table top you prefer. ...Read more

Organic Tote Bags

Time to feature some totes again, especially as SFMOMA has a couple of good ones from FluffyCo. You've heard time and time again that totes are great alternatives to those icky plastic bags, so if you don't have one you're a bad person. Not really, of course, but carrying around a tote does make you a better person, at least according to the people at the local health food store. ...Read more

ARKCANARY II

Don't get too excited, it's not a modern day earhorn for your less-than-great hearing (though I suppose you could try it out to see if it works), it's an analog acoustic speaker for the iPhone 4. You know all about acoustic speakers, as we've posted several, but this pint sized version seems all the more charming because of its size (and because it looks like an earhorn). Manufacturer: ARKWHAT Material: PVC ...Read more

Cuppow Mason Jar Lid

Yeah I know, canning jars are extremely trendy right now, even more than the actual canning process. I'm drinking out of one in a coffee shop at this exact moment. But beyond fashion, they are simple and robust in their design, perfect for drinking glasses. However, the open top proves to be unwieldy when on-the-go. Cue the Cuppow, a plastic drinking lid designed to convert any mason jar into a ...Read more

The Backyard House

If you've not seen Megan Lea's Backyard House, you're in for a treat. Intended as an extra space for an office or as a guest room, the 154 square foot house was built in a small corner of her vegetable garden in less than six months using salvaged barn lumber and a salvaged copper roof. Natural plaster walls and a wood stove keep it cozy while a small loft provides extra ...Read more

YMSK Triangle Clips

If you think the standard paper or binder clip cannot be improved, think again. Yamsaki Design Works has made a simple revision in shape that improves the function of a paperclip. The triangle clips lay flat, thus keeping a low profile when holding papers together, and leave the paper unwarped when slipped off. Small changes, sure, but small details sometimes make a big difference. Pack of 25 clips. Stainless steel. Made ...Read more

Sbriciola Bread Cutting Board

Corral bread crumbs easily with this cutting board from Alessi. As you slice bread, crumbs fall between the slats into the tray below, which then pulls out for quick cleaning. Designed by Anna and Gian Franco Gasparini, the very same couple who designed the Milky Way Minor Cheese Knife Set. If you know someone serious about their bread and cheese, you might consider either (or both, if you're feeling generous) ...Read more

Help Remedies

Help® has added a couple of new products to their online store. If you're not familiar with the company, let's just say this: their solutions are made with a single active ingredient, the drugs are not dyed or coated, and each drug is labeled clearly for the specific symtom so everyone understands exactly what they are taking and why.

AIRbudz

Can you guess what this is from the photo above? If your guess had anything to do with earbuds, you're right. AIRbudz is an earbud attachement that allows you to hear ambient noise while you're listening to music. When you're out walking or running, certain noises can alert you to potential safety hazards (like bikes, cars, buses) and unfortunately your regular headphones muffle, if not completely silence, those sounds that ...Read more
