Ding Enameled Cast Iron Casserole with Stand

I know next to nothing about cooking, but I sure know a handsome casserole dish when I see one. Made from cast iron (which is very efficient at retaining heat), the dish has a flat base that sits easily on an oven rack or stovetop with a separate stand (and non-slip silicone pads) to raise the dish for tabletop serving. Those of you familiar with the the ancient Chinese tradition ...Read more

The Palmerston Stool

Here's another excellent option for a counter stool, straight from Coolican & Company. Handcrafted from solid Black Walnut (harvested on the Niagara Escarpment), the counter height stool has a classic turned leg with an interesting faceted top for comfort. The pared down styling makes it a future classic, as it would work well with many other design periods. The price is pretty reasonable too- or, at least not crazy expensive considering ...Read more

Pinson Carafe

This carafe by designer Céline Frébault (in collaboration with the Sentou gallery) incorporates a rather odd beaker-like handle, which fills when the carafe is full. As far as carafes go, it's definitely got a high end (semi-mad-scientist?) look... any guesses as to the price? Is it $50, $100, $200? If you guessed around the $100 mark, you are correct. It comes with a $115 price tag. 10" high. "I endeavour to keep only what ...Read more

Simone Table and Bench

If you're looking for a super-minimal table or bench, you might like the looks of the Simone Collection by 57st. design. Double-thick Baltic birch plywood has dovetailed ends (spaced in irregular intervals) for visual interest and overall strength. The short or long bench would do well in an entryway or hallway, and won't break the bank, thankfully. Free shipping, too, just in case that sweetens the deal. Materials: Baltic Birch ...Read more

Hummingbird Foldable Bike

A folding bike that weighs the same as two cats? For reals? The Hummingbird Bike is the lightest folding bike on the market, thanks to its carbon fibre frame and smart design. It weighs in at 6.5 kilograms (that's 14.33 pounds)- pretty impressive. After all, is there anyone sane who enjoys lugging their bike up stairs after they've pedaled for miles and miles?
