Moooi Sponge Vase

Moooi Sponge Vase

Would you believe that we originally featured Marcel Wanders' Sponge Vase way back in the fall of 2007? Here's a quick lesson on how it's made: a sponge form is dipped into fluid porcelain clay, then fired in an oven where the sponge burns away, leaving only the porcelain form in its place. Neat, right? I'd count it among one of the top gifts for any discerning design fan, as it's ...Read more

Bookend and Paper Holder by Scandola Marmi

Bookend and Paper Holder by Scandola Marmi

Maybe a bookend sounds like a boring gift, but this isn't just a bookend. It also holds CDs (remember those?) and papers, thanks to its angled side slots. It would be an excellent entryway or office accessory, as it would do multiple jobs of holding and organizing books and papers. Fun tidbit of info: it was inspired by the Dome of Milan. Rotate the bookend (on its long edge) to ...Read more

Normann Copenhagen Basic Bronze Bar Tools

Normann Copenhagen Basic Bronze Bar Tools

What do you get your favorite wino oenophile? These Bronze Wine Tools from Normann Copenhagen, that's what. However, if they're a true oenophile, they probably already have a preferred opener/set, so they'll most likely say, 'oh, that's so nice of you, but I already have a preferred opener, so please, do keep it for your own use...' and then you'll have to pretend to be embarrassed instead of ...Read more
