Patio Garden Planter

Remember Scout Regalia's Raised Garden Kit ($95)? If you're too lazy to assemble it yourself, there's the Patio Garden Planter that arrives ready to go. Just add in the permeable textile (it's included- it will keep soil drained and aerated), soil, and then the plants (or seeds, like these GMO Free Herb Seeds), water appropriately, and you'll be knee deep in lush greens before you know it. Make sure you've got ...Read more

El Prado Rug from grain

Is anyone else in the mood for some crazy rugs? Maybe it's the summer heat, but there's something about this optical grid patterned rug from grain that looks just right. No need to worry about where it came from either, as each rug is handwoven by "artisan weavers in the Western Highlands of Guatemala using locally sourced and dyed wool." Does that make you like it a little more? Their ...Read more

Vifa Copenhagen Wireless Speaker

Are you still looking for a wireless speaker? Save your pennies, because this one earns top marks for its pared down design and integrated handle. It's like someone took an old boombox, shrunk it down, and waved a magic wand to reduce it down to only a Kvadrat fabric facing and aluminum frame. Very minimal/modern, isn't it? Fun fact: Vifa was founded in Denmark in 1933 by auto mechanic-turned-audio engineer ...Read more

Sempli’s Incanter

It is the height of summer right now, which means if you put anything cold with fruit in it out in the open, someone will drink it. Sempli's Incanter looks sort of fun, if you can get past the tipsiness that you might feel watching it spin around. Maybe you'd put fruits into the borosilicate glass infuser and then pour in a liquor, but I'd opt for water or lemonade ...Read more
