You can pair it with your phone/device's notification system to receive instant on-screen alerts for calls, texts, or social media updates.

Simone Table and Bench

Simone Table and Bench
If you're looking for a super-minimal table or bench, you might like the looks of the Simone Collection by 57st. design. Double-thick Baltic birch plywood has dovetailed ends (spaced in irregular intervals) for visual interest and overall strength. The short or long bench would do well in an entryway or hallway, and won't break the bank, thankfully. Free shipping, too, just in case that sweetens the deal. Materials: Baltic Birch...Read more

Snowe Drink Essentials Set

Snowe Drink Essentials Set
Bargain glassware has one thing going for it: bargain pricing. But it's not such a bargain if the glassware breaks after a couple of uses, right? Here's a drinkware set that's durable, elegant, and rather affordable. A set of four glasses are paired with a tall carafe; all are made in Italy of lead-free crystallized glass that is both ultra-clear and break resistant. Quality and beauty combined? Yes, please.

Mixrack

Mixrack
It's that time of the year when stacks of logs in your living room are entirely permissible... unless you don't have a fireplace, that is, because then you'll just look like a hoarder. This Mixrack is a simple frame of powder-coated steel that can accommodate firewood, wine bottles, or magazines. As long as you keep the stack tidy and avoid any other compulsive gathering of multiple materials, it's an excellent...Read more

Hummingbird Foldable Bike

Hummingbird Foldable Bike
A folding bike that weighs the same as two cats? For reals? The Hummingbird Bike is the lightest folding bike on the market, thanks to its carbon fibre frame and smart design. It weighs in at 6.5 kilograms (that's 14.33 pounds)- pretty impressive. After all, is there anyone sane who enjoys lugging their bike up stairs after they've pedaled for miles and miles? Or finding a spot in the office...Read more

Hay Punched Organizers

Hay Punched Organizers
A little perforated pattern won't harm your kitchen or desktop, for it adds a little punch of organization with its tidy grids- maybe subconsciously it will encourage you to get your ducks in a row, so to speak. Perhaps your kitchen utensils will sit nicely in the larger holder, or maybe your pens will be at home in the low tray, either way, it always helps to have a couple...Read more

Noguchi’s Light Sculptures

Noguchi’s Light Sculptures
This is just a reminder, if you've forgotten, that Isamu Noguchi's table light sculptures are very affordable. Case in point, the Table Lamp Model 1AG you see above, comes in at $145. My other favorite, the Floor Lamp Model UF3-Q, isn't so incredibly affordable ($525), but it's still worth considering as a collector's item that provides a wonderful, diffused light.
