Valentine’s Day Stuff

If you absolutely have to participate in the overblown holiday that is Valentine's Day, you have my sympathy. To provide you with support, here are a few things that are a design aficionado's equivalent to a fluffy teddy bear and a shiny-red-heart-shaped mylar balloon, and are therefore entirely acceptable to give to someone you care about. A sappy/sentimental card is optional. 1. Wörther Wood Mechanical Pencil, $42.00 2. 'Love Heart' coffee ...Read more

Brooklyn Desk

The Brooklyn Desk has clever little storage boxes that slip over its edge, which means the boxes can be arranged to suit the user's preferences exactly. Now, do keep in mind it is a smaller worktop, so it's ideal for smaller people (and smaller spaces), and would be especially suitable for a growing child, as the desk height is adjustable (up to adult height). Perhaps with enough interest, Oeuf will ...Read more

Wings Lamps by Haim Evgi Design Studio

While these lamps are inspired by different bird wings, some of us may tend towards a stronger zoomorphic interpretation, for the lamp can appear to stand like a bird, with the solid oak shade as its head. A thin iron leg and base gives the lamp a perched stance, which takes up minimal room on a desktop or tight floor plan. Shade made of solid oak; can illuminate up and ...Read more

Austin Maynard Architects: Mills House

Yes, the Mills House by Austin Maynard Architects does have a cool metal mesh on its rear facade to shade it from the sun. It also has the same mesh running throughout the home, most notably on the stairs and on the floor of the upper level. That's a neat material to use, as it lets light filter through and the air circulate. There's also a smart little design detail (...Read more
