Soapstone Shot Cups

Besides the lovely bluish hue, did you know that non-porous soapstone will not trap flavor or odors? And that it keeps your favorite beverage cold? Now, back to the lovely bluish-black hue, let's hope that's not just the spotlights creating the color, because it's something special. Designed by Thea Mehl for Teroforma’s Ekke series and sold as a set of four. Material: Soapstone Size: 2.1" h, Volume: 2 fl. oz Set of 4 ...Read more

Muuto Around Tables

The aim of Thomas Bentzen's Around table for Muuto is functional simplicity. The tables are meant to be stable, durable, and the edge around the table keeps coffee cups and drinks right where they belong. As Bentzen says, "around thus forms a practical and welcoming place to gather." Two different sizes are available: a larger coffee table and a smaller side. Around table coffee, size: Height 37,5 cm, diameter 72 cm, $699.00 Around ...Read more

“A Tempo” Laundry Basket

Remember last week's "A Tempo" Stool? Well, rarely is a laundry basket something worth featuring, but designer Pauline Deltour has made this one with metal wire, and, as was the case with the stool, it's something to notice. Rarely would a laundry basket command such a price, but this one is infinitely better than your local big box store selection. There's also an additional tray ($34) if you want to hide ...Read more

4th Dimension Concrete Clock

It's fair to say that there aren't many clocks made of concrete. Though this particular hand made wall clock is striking in its choice of materials, I wonder just how heavy it is and what would be the means of securing it to the wall. The play of light and shadow would be interesting as it changes with time, for sure. "Concept of linking time and space is visualized with ...Read more

Almond Rug by DwellStudio

Whoa, if you're a sucker for black and white patterns, check out these flat woven rugs from DwellStudio. The runner is a winner, for sure, with its simple almond shapes taking the full width of pattern. Flat woven rugs are often the best choice for high traffic areas as they don't show wear as much as a higher pile rug. They're often much easier to clean as well. 80% wool / 20% cotton. ...Read more

Blocks by Brinca Dada

Whoa, are these crazy blocks or what? Brinca Dada is usually known for their dollhouses, which are actually pretty amazing, but these blocks are fit for adults and kids alike. Instead of fitting together snugly or simply, they're completely wonky and will encourage you to play "with the simplicity of imperfection." Nice idea, isn't it? Material: Teak Hardwood Set contains 21 pieces. ...Read more

Castiglioni Splugen Bottle Opener

Never underestimate a good bottle opener; the same goes for a corkscrew. If you use it often, a well designed opener can make the experience of removing the lid of your beer or beverage even better, while using a poorly designed one can be quite irritating, and even dangerous (if and when inebriated). This bottle opener was originally designed in 1960 by Achille Castiglioni for the Splugen Brau bar project in ...Read more

WineSkin

At the risk of sounding like a pretentious wino, when you travel with wine, you want it to make sure it arrives unharmed. And when that wine is, say, a little expensive (why else would you travel with it) you'd do well to invest $4 in making sure it's protected. This durable vinyl WineSkin has a double closure and an interior bubble pack that acts as an insulating shock absorber. It's ...Read more

24h Tuokio Tableware

If you would like a more established tableware set (i.e. nicer than what you bought at IKEA), you could do a whole lot worse than this set from Heikki Orvola. If you're a complete dinnerware-obsessed nutcase*, you might recognize the 24h series, which Orvola designed for his own use. While perhaps the collection didn't necessarily need improvement, Finnish designer duo Helorinne & Kallio added a little pep and pizazz (for ...Read more

Dopp Kit by hard graft

Have you ever seen a nicer wash bag? It's almost too nice to get anywhere near water, though you could protect the leather/suede with a Scotchguard-ish spray and wax. If you've cycled through several wash bags in your recent past, it might be time to consider investing in something that will last, not to mention that looks so darn good. It's worth mentioning it could also be used as ...Read more
