Ollie

I know you don't need yet another thing to put in your wallet, but what if this extra thing could fit all sorts of handy tools like a bottle opener, ruler, spoke wrench, protractor, metric and standard ruler, metric wrenches, drill guides, and a 1/8" hex drive, all in one slender credit-card-like shape? Maybe then you'd find some room? Laser cut and etched from 18 gauge stainless steel or titanium, the Ollie ...Read more

It looks super sharp, as you can see, but you'll also be glad to hear that its ergonomic shape will help your posture as well. Too good ...Read more

Shell Chair, Maharam Fabric

Whoa, Wegner's Shell Chair with Maharam fabric? Let's just adjust to this slowly and give our brains time to absorb something as sacrosanct as the Shell with something as bright and colorful as the Maharam options. I think we approve- and by 'we' I mean you and I and not the royal 'we'- don't we?

The Alarming Clock

Here's a different sort of alarm clock whose sound depends entirely on what you put in front of it. Huh? The signal sounds like a woodpecker drumming against a tree, but if you put a vase of water, or some other vessel or surface, against the 'beak' or nose, then you'll create a different sound. Unfortunately, it's available only to residents in the UK or Europe, but you can put ...Read more

Cashmends

September means sweaters, right? And, if you've ever found a rather worn spot or a moth hole on your favorite sweater, you know the sinking feeling once you know it's headed for the donate pile. So, get ahead of any disappointment and get some Cashmends- either in an Elbow Patch or Band-Aid shape (the flowers and moths are a bit too decorative for my taste)- and know that you ...Read more
