Tab Shelf

Sure, it's a shelf, what of it? Well, this powder-coated steel shelf has a ridge down the middle to keep photos and art propped up as well as a lip on the front. That allows you to display all sorts of things without worrying about little (or big) things falling off, which makes it suitable for anywhere you need an extra display or storage space.

Bob and Sara Lamps by Dan Yeffet

Molded blown glass forms the base and shade of the Bob and Sara Lamps by designer Dan Yeffet. If you've not heard of Yeffet yet, just wait a little while, his name will pop up. The two intersecting columns on these two lamps have slight variants in shade- the darker shade at the base- which helps highlight the craftsmanship of blown glass formed into a traditional lamp shape. Bob Lamp, $430.00 ...Read more

Shape Boards

Gah! I didn't think it possible to admire a cutting board so much. This collection of Shape Boards from Bower Studio (also available from Cooper-Hewitt Shop) has my head in a spin. The blank side is for cutting, the (non-toxic) painted side for a decorative twist of a 3D geometric shape. And, get ready for it, Bower Studio also has Shape Mirrors, but that's for another post (tomorrow). Designers: Danny ...Read more

Copenhague Desk

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are at it again with the Copenhague Desk, created for the new buildings at the University of Copenhagen. While originally designed for dorm rooms, classrooms, and common spaces, I think most of us will agree that the desk and chair look a heck of a lot nicer than anything we sat on at any stage of our schooling, and deserve to be somewhere better, maybe in ...Read more

Grab & Go Coasters

These look a little similar to Food Huggers, don't they? (Note to self: try out Food Huggers as coasters.) They do to me, and I wonder if condensation gets caught by the coaster or if the coasters are such a tight fit that condensation simply runs off the side. In any case, a coaster that stays with your drink (and possibly catches condensation) is a good fix for all those ...Read more

Two Tops Series by Marcel Wanders

While not new, the Two Tops Table by Marcel Wanders recently found pride of place on my list of dining table options for a young family. The 'Two Tops' has an option to use laptops or coloring books at each end, thanks to a hinged end section that flips up to access the space. To hide the workspace, flip down the lid and you have a clean tabletop for dinnertime, ...Read more
