POV Planter

POV Planter
All right, what did you think this was at first glance? A strange hair decoration? A fireplace accessory? Nope, it's a sturdy support for your leggy plants to climb and grow upon. The 3-D box design keeps things modern while contrasting nicely with the curvy lines of vines and foliage. Use them indoors or outside, as they're made of powder-coated steel.

Arbor Birdhouse

Arbor Birdhouse
I know next to nothing about birds, but that doesn't stop me from wanting a birdhouse. And, hey, there's no way I'm going to settle for just any birdhouse, because there are standards to uphold, aren't there? This Arbor House is made from recycled high density polyethylene (HDPE)- that translates into 24 recycled milk jugs- and thermally modified maple. That means no maintenance whatsoever, except for cleaning it out each...Read more

Geez, another modern beach towel? We're up to our eyeballs here with all the choices, and this one is very tempting price-wise.

Multi Basket

Multi Basket
Is it time for a picnic? I think so, especially if you had this basket from Danish brand Menu. It's a sort of hybrid between a basket and tray, with two air-tight containers with bamboo lids, two cooling pads, and a felt liner. Stick the cooling pads in the freezer before you head out to keep your food cool. It's like a bento-box-basket, isn't it? You could, of course, also...Read more

Fundamental Lamp

Fundamental Lamp
Stripes! It evokes a certain Memphis Group flavor, don't you think? And, yes, you could probably make something similar if you had the tools (so, go ahead, make one). If you know you're too lazy, then this little lamp by Brendan Timmins will set you back $160. A small price to pay for a cheery, striped light with a pink cord, don't you think?

Pon+ Pin
Do you remember the harmless Pon Push Pin? The same folks have a new version (aptly named Pon+) that's a bit bigger and has a smart pull tab. Pull the tab and slide your pictures/artwork underneath for easy display and no puncture wounds. The bigger size means it can hold larger loads as well. Each Pon+ 18mm in diameter / 56mm circumference....Read more

Arch Floor Mirror

Arch Floor Mirror
"What's through there?" That's what your friends will be saying until they smack their foreheads against this mirror (they're not too bright, those friends of yours, poor things). Just think, your place will look like it gained another room at first glance, thanks to the elegant optical illusion of the arched design. Look closely and you'll see several varying tints create a shaded effect; a small detail, yes, but quite...Read more

Mirtoon Automatic Hose Reel

Mirtoon Automatic Hose Reel
Have you seen any decent garden hose storage options? If you have, please don't keep it to yourself. If you haven't, I may need to bite the bullet and buy the Mirtoon Automatic Hose Reel, as it doesn't offend my very finicky design sensibilities. It's wall mounted, can pivot 180 degrees, and automatically stops and retracts with a little tug. The spray gun has 5 settings and an adjustable nozzle....Read more
