Sphere Table

Hmm... the idea behind this Sphere Table is to be commended, but I believe we'll all have differing opinions as to the choice of materials. Now, considering this table was created by Hella Jongerius as a special furniture piece for North Delegates Lounge at the United Nations headquarters in New York, it's understandable that it has a commercial feel that some may not like for their own home's interior. The ...Read more

Paperback Notes

Despite having the latest version of the iPhone, do you still write down your grocery or to-do list on a sticky note?

Standing Bowl

If you have a very good memory, you probably remember seeing this bowl before when Gregory Buntain, of Fort Standard, shared his holiday Gift Ideas.
