Farmhouse Modern Cupboard

The beauty of a walnut armoire/cabinet done in a minimal, modern design is just plain hard to resist, no matter the cost. Chadhaus (a favorite of ours here at BLTD) has released this new design and it has the same quality marks we've come to know and expect (and love) from their previous pieces. The hand-built nature of the solid wood case and custom-veneered doors guarantees that it will ...Read more

Coin Mirror by 45 Kilo

What's the big deal about a piece of polished copper? For starters, it's hand-polished to a mirror shine, so you can see your face in it every day (you'll have a rosy glow, which will do wonders for your self-confidence). The copper will take on a warm patina over time, giving it an ageless appeal and character- perhaps you'll be lucky enough to say the same about your face? Designed ...Read more

Keyway Ruler

You probably won't care much about this ruler unless you spend time with papers and pencils, but for those of us that still rely on old school tools most of the time or occasionally, it's definitely worth a look. The Keyway Ruler has metric units on one side and imperial units on the other, with a rolled edge that allows you to flip between the two systems. And, if you ...Read more

Beoplay A2 Bluetooth Speaker

Take a look at the size of the BeoPlay A2 Speaker. Compared to other bluetooth speakers, that's a reassuring thing because, as some experts will cry from the rooftops, it's just not easy to pack a great sound into a very small box. The look of it doesn't hurt either, as green, black, and grey are right up our sartorial alleyways. The leather strap makes it easy to carry or ...Read more

Waterworks Bulb

The Waterworks Bulb looks so much better than a wine bottle Plant Nanny, don't you think? It's suitably sized for smaller houseplants, and blends in more with its surroundings thanks to its clear glass bulb. You can also choose which sort of terra-cotta cone you'd like based on the amount of water a specific plant needs, thus ensuring ideal water flow and happier, healthier plants.

BFGF Woven Blankets

If you're shivering alone at night, wondering where all the other weird and wonderful people are, you need a BFGF blanket to keep you company. With simple sketches of banal objects, the blankets give a casual cartoon perspective that is both familiar and funny. The Worldwide Aura Blanket (above) is my favorite, but the others will be just as warm and will perhaps suit you and your décor just ...Read more

Bounce Shade by Karl Zahn

This light bears its name for obvious reasons. The adjustable light projects a beam onto a folded aluminum shade, which then bounces the light back towards its source. The large, sail-like shade seems to float in mid air, yet reality shows a thin chain that hangs from a single point in the ceiling. This complete separation of light source and shade allows for various placements- do have some fun with ...Read more

Weekend Collection by Studio Brichet Ziegler for OXYO

Look at this beauty. In a bright strawberry red, this sun bed will be sure to beckon you towards the outdoors this summer. Don't worry, though, if red isn't your color there are 11 other colors to choose from (including the requisite white and very safe gray). The Weekend Chair (shown below) is what originally caught my eye, as it costs $285, and that's pretty affordable compared to some of the other ...Read more

Aelfie x Studio Proba Rugs

A pretty patterned rug that rolls right in with the spring season is just what our floors need. These Aelfie x Studio Proba Rugs play with colorful, geometric shapes in a flat woven 100% wool. All five designs are easy on the eyes, but these three are my favorites (and seem to be available through the Cooper Hewitt Shop's website). Fair warning, though, there's a limited edition of only 3 each. If ...Read more

Living Wall Planter 2

It's Earth Day, and that means you should probably assess what you can do to make the world around you a bit greener. Maybe that means using less water, maybe it means using mass transportation (or carpooling) a little more, but whatever you do, do something. Maybe you could plant a few more herbs and veggies in or around your home, which will go a long way towards reducing your ...Read more

Drifted Bar Stool L

I did promise to feature all decent barstools, didn't I? This time you'll be very happy with the price tag. Norwegian Lars Beller Fjetland created the Drifted series of stools after finding pieces of old cork washed upon the shore. Cork is a comfortable seating material with a natural water resistance, so it would be ideal for a kitchen or bar area. The oak frame has a traditional influence which ...Read more
