New Order Shelving System

I know, shelving is rarely exciting, but this shelving system sort of is. The shelves are made from aluminum- nothing new, I know- but these shelves can be up to 2 meters (>6') long and they'll support books and other weighty items, unlike some of the lesser quality aluminum shelves that bend and/or dent under the slightest stack of books. There's also an option of open or closed units, back ...Read more

It's in the shape of a scoop, so that adds a little more mystery... what could it be? Answer below. It's a door stop! You might have figured that out, as cast iron is usually used for such things.

Serra Portable Side Table

Yes, you could just staple a piece of fabric on an existing side table and call it portable, but I very much doubt it would look as nice as the Serra. The belt across the Serra's middle is high resistance, so it's ideal for carrying the steel table from sofa to chair or from room to room. Use the table's surface for your laptop or for a cup of tea, ...Read more

Cashmends, Tweedmends

We've featured Cashmends before, but they're just too good to forget. We all have favorite sweaters, and it's so very sad when they get worn spots. Cashmends are iron-on patches that spruce up the elbows (or other areas) so you can continue wearing your warmest garments. There's now Tweedmends as well, so you have the opportunity to upgrade an older blazer or jacket as well as your sweaters. Personally, I'm ...Read more

Toboggan® Pull Up Table

The Toboggan Pull Up Table is more suitable for a workspace than one's living area- just take a look at those little plastic feet- they basically scream 'put me in a shared office environment!' So, if you happen to have some influence with the person in charge of ordering furniture for your office, you'd do well to point out that the table can serve as a small work surface ...Read more

Hamill Lamp

Looking a little like an ancient artifact, the Hamill Lamp consists of a hammered brass shade, a blackened steel base, and the necessary socket, bulb, and cloth cord. There's nothing complicated about it, yet the materials will add an extra layer of warmth- and maybe a dash of historical relevance- to an interior. There's a sconce as well. overall: 11"W x 4"D x 8.5"H base: 4" x 4" shade 11"W x 6"H ...Read more

Sasso Serving Trays

It's a large, flat wooden serving tray, so what's the big deal? As is often the case, the big deal is in the smallest of details. A pebble-like shape finishes in a precise edge, giving the tray a very subtle, sculptural feel that puts the beauty of the wood front and center. But wait, is it too nice for your snacks or hors d'oeuvres? Nope, the price is pretty friendly ...Read more
