Perimeter Floor Lamp

With a ship date of October 2011, you've got a little time to think about this floor lamp. Thin loops of powder-coated steel create the base and while it measures 18" wide, it has a rather airy appearance. I love the blue and yellow (either color would pop out in a neutral space) yet the white might be a better choice if you prefer a more subtle look. Material: Powder-coated steel base, ...Read more

A stainless steel insert allows for labeling and there's also shaker screen inserts should you need them.

Grove Office Center

This piece would be perfect for tucking away a home office. The size is big enough to hold a computer, accessories and files, yet it's not too large... as in, it's not a wooden behemoth crouched in the corner of your living room. There's the mid century feel that most of us are fond of, and it's handcrafted (domestically) of solid cherry wood, which means it'll last long enough to ...Read more

Bandana Dinnerware

Seeing as it's the first day of the last month of summer, it's worth reminding that you might as well take advantage of every moment outside if you're experiencing nice weather*. There's something about this bandana dinnerware that says 'summer' loud and clear. Sure, it's got the red/white/blue theme, and a bandana design, but it's also triple-weight melamine, which means durability. *Lucky. Not the case in Houston right ...Read more

That Blows Hanky set

So, now that most of us have eschewed paper towels in favor of clever/artistic washable tea towels in the kitchen, is it time to convert back to cloth when it comes to our noses? Before paper tissue became de rigueur, everyone had a handkerchief for personal hygiene, and perhaps all we need to return to the old fashioned habit is a little encouragement from this set. I especially like ...Read more

Seatbelt Wall Screen

Here's something slightly different in the world of wall screens: this one is made from white/black seatbelts. There's not a whole lot of info on it, nor does there need to be I suppose, other than the dimensions (38 1/2“W x 38 1/2“H x 3“D). (However, be smart and email any questions before purchasing.) ...Read more

Tablée Wooden Cutlery

Will this wooden cutlery break? Possibly, if you press down too hard. Do they look cool/interesting? No doubt. These look very similar to some wooden cutlery I posted back in '09, yet unfortunately the price is quite a bit more. I've included a few more wooden cutlery options below at lower price points.
