Weight Vases

Yes, here's another vase, but considering the holiday that takes place this Sunday, I figure there is going to be a plethora of flowers around, and you'll have ample opportunity to assess whether or not the receptacle in which they are placed is aesthetically acceptable. If it isn't, you're in the market for a better vase. Now, there's no question in my mind that these Weight Vases by Decha Archjananum ...Read more

Hide Pendant Lights

If you're vegan, just skip reading this post or spending too long looking at these pendant lights. For the rest of us, you might notice that these lamps are made of laser cut leather (locally sourced, mind you), hand molded and hand dyed to the correct color. As with other fine leather goods, they're not inexpensive, yet for certain rooms or environments, they just might be worth the price. Designed ...Read more

601Street 4×4 Envelope Notebook

Don't underestimate the effect a handwritten thank you note can have, especially as they're rare to give and receive nowadays.

There's also a 6x4 Envelope Notebook, $13.95 (24 sheets ...Read more

That's right, it's an electric paint pen. It's completely safe, as the electrically conductive paint is formatted to be non-toxic, solvent-free, and water-soluble, and only becomes conductive when dry. And what would you use this pen for? If you're especially handy, you could repair devices, draw circuits on all sorts of materials, solder stuff... you fill in the rest. The paint dries after five minutes and can be removed with ...Read more

Rigby Media Console

What's that price tag doing on such a modern media console? And it can be mounted directly on the wall without the base, thus bringing the price down to $999? Hmm, perhaps we need to consider where it could live in our own homes. I especially like the option of the wall mount version, as it could be hung at any height and do the job of an entryway console or ...Read more
