Squeeze In Orange Squeezer

We could play the whole 'what-is-it' game, but you probably possess enough deductive reasoning to guess the function of the top part of this set. That's right, it's an orange squeezer. Don't go thinking it's palm-sized, though, it's approximately 9" tall, so it will handle all manner of freakishly large citrus. The dark oak wood juicer sits snugly into the ceramic vase when not in use. Bonus: it's on sale (reg.$89). ...Read more

Sphere Table

Hmm... the idea behind this Sphere Table is to be commended, but I believe we'll all have differing opinions as to the choice of materials. Now, considering this table was created by Hella Jongerius as a special furniture piece for North Delegates Lounge at the United Nations headquarters in New York, it's understandable that it has a commercial feel that some may not like for their own home's interior.

Despite having the latest version of the iPhone, do you still write down your grocery or to-do list on a sticky note?
