That way I can buy this Pie Chart Patchwork, set the baby down on it, and say, "Hey, little person, how happy are you on this wonderful, rainbow, lambswool thingamajig?"

Verte Carafe

You know what makes this a better-than-average carafe? Take a look at the spout: that's a patented “two lip system” which ensures that any and all drips return to the bottle. That's right, no drips. Water, wine, juice... you name it, and this carafe will transport it safely from your fridge to a drinking vessel with no mess. The hand-blown glass container fits perfectly into the fridge door for convenience. ...Read more

2×4 Pendant

Is it magic that keeps this pendant in place? No, it's not, but you can pretend if you want. This light fixture appears to be floating, thanks to a mono filament suspension, giving you a very minimal (and magical) look to your room. A frosted glass lens hides an LED strip on the underside, which keeps the 2x4 pristine with its simple, whitewashed finish. Standard hardware includes: monofilament, adjustable cable ...Read more

Aluminum Lunch Box

Why do you need an aluminum lunch box? Who knows. Maybe you're a little clumsy, and tend to drop your lunch bag repeatedly to the point where your sandwich, fruit, and/or chips are no longer recognizable. And that's no fun, is it? With an aluminum lunch box you'd be hard pressed to do any damage, unless there's a car or other heavy machinery involved in your daily commute, in ...Read more

Roll / Rule

Hold your hand up if you want an etched acrylic ruler. My hand is raised, how about yours? Designed by Paul Cocksedge, these rulers are sculptural pieces with millimeter accuracy, and they're intended for functional use, mind you, so don't just admire it from across the room. Choose between the classic square or the round barrel. Also, do I need to hit you over the head with the obvious fact ...Read more

I Love You Mug

How do you say 'I love you' in a different way? With a knife, a bloody heart, and a horseshoe, preferably in picture form upon an enamel mug, of course. Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari (of Toilet Paper magazine fame) are responsible for this drinking vessel, and it seems to strike the perfect balance between creepy-weird and very practical, as it won't break and, perhaps more importantly, if you take ...Read more

What is it?

What's this metal mesh thing? I'll give you a hint: it's not intended for use as clothing or body armor- though I suppose in a pinch you could try and use it as such if someone comes at you with a rusty sword- instead think of it more as armor for a surface. Do you know? Answer below. It's a wire trivet! Put your hot pots, pans, tea kettles, etc. ...Read more

Clothes Rack

Would you like an alternate version of this clothing rail ($399) we posted a few weeks ago? Well, Ferm Living has a rather similar idea in the clothes rack you see above. An iron rod hangs from the ceiling by harness leather belts, so there's a material/textural difference- a nice touch, I think. And, your wallet will be happy that it's less expensive than the other one (by $150). It should ...Read more

If you've not changed over to digital subscriptions, you know that piles of magazines can be a little messy at times.
