PH 5 Pendant Light

PH 5 Pendant Light
If you're going to buy a PH 5 Pendant Light, it might as well be on sale. This classic light was designed by Poul Henningsen in 1958 and remains one of the smarter choices for glare-free illumination. You're probably familiar with the slightly more popular PH Artichoke by Henningsen, yet the price tag on that makes it a little less attainable. The curved reflectors on the PH5 ensure that light...Read more

Sans Calendar by Rationale

Sans Calendar by Rationale
It's the middle of May and you're seeing a calendar. What's up with that?

The vertical layout may be just a little more workable for your desktop area. If the minimal black, white, and red design looks familiar, that's because it's got the same...Read more

Slow Brew Iced Tea Maker

Slow Brew Iced Tea Maker
Slow brewed tea sounds slightly pretentious, I know, but this little guy makes it look super easy and worth a try. After all, summer is almost here, right? Apparently cold-brewed tea is less bitter and astringent, just like cold-brewed coffee. A double-walled, clear infuser lets you keep an eye on the color while also keeping the tea's temperature stable. You can even try cold-brewing coffee in it, as the retailer...Read more
