DAAME Leather Laptop Tote

They're either too 'office-y' or way too nice and expensive and not at all utilitarian. The DAAME Leather Laptop Tote has pockets and spaces for your laptop and tech stuff as well as your everyday essentials, and it doesn't scream 'HEY I'M CARRYING A LAPTOP! I JUST ...Read more

Fender Floor Lamp

Some of the most interesting interiors have a mix of modern and traditional elements, which is why some of us are always drawn towards pieces with a sense of history. After seeing the price on this Fender Floor Lamp from Wilkos Electric, I certainly was sold; I think it will live next to one of my more modern armchairs. Each Fender is individually handcrafted by Maciek Wilkos in his Montré...Read more

Fatboy Picnic Lounge

Yes, the large tag on this Fatboy Picnic Lounge is a little obnoxious, but it's also a little pouch for your keys, phone, etc. so you don't lose them at the beach or park (or backyard?). Maybe we'll just tuck it under the lounge rug so it doesn't distract us and/or others from all the fun we'll be having. Four giant pins, a hole in the middle for a ...Read more

Chikuno Cube House

The above photo initially baffled me, as I wasn't quite sure what I was looking at. The honeycomb structure is what caused the confusion, as the Chikuno Cube is normally shown as a black, charcoal cube, and its honeycomb composition is not usually highlighted. If you're not familiar, the Chikuno Cube is made of activated bamboo charcoal and clay, and with tiny air pockets, the cube absorbs odor; to "recharge" ...Read more
