Beer Goggles Glass

As a companion piece to the Good Grief Glasses, this pint glass shows the unfortunate decline of our standards as our alcohol intake increases. Funny, right? Keep it in mind for the next birthday gift for your favorite drinking buddy, but be sure to buy two as one alone is just depressing. 16 oz. pint glass. Made in the USA. ...Read more

Say a quiet, dignified 'hello' to the Lineage Pillow collection from Cofield. The two patterns play with traditional American quilt block patterns to create a "graphic representation of an ...Read more

Bola Service Table

Pingpong anyone? Imagine Thanksgiving around this table: a nice dinner with the family, then bring out the net and it's every man/woman to him/herself. The first serve goes straight into the mashed potatoes (if there's any left), hitting your Aunt Rose (accidentally, of course, she got in the way when she was clearing the dishes) with your best backhand stroke because you can't let [insert annoying relative] win, ...Read more

Wooden Ruler by HAY

Striped, random rulers are sure to cheer you up no matter what. Just look at those colors and lines! I'd say if you're going to get one, you might as well get a few, especially as you can't specify which one(s) you prefer. That's good news, by the way, as it'd be hard to pick favorites. Also available directly from HAY, 49,00 DKK. Please note you cannot specify the colour / ...Read more
