Portfolio

Portfolio
So, this isn't a scrapbook, it's a Portfolio. That's said with a teensy bit of snobbery, by the way. A thick paper accordion is held between two pieces of solid oak with a large rubber band to hold it all together. Think of it as a cool way to showcase photos and/or drawings- perhaps from a vacation or special event (gift alert!). When opened, the Portfolio stands on its own...Read more

Nest Mortar and Pestle

Nest Mortar and Pestle
Uh-oh, if you like the Nest Mortar and Pestle from Pat Kim, you'd better snap one up right this very second, because there's only four available. The mortar actually houses the pestle in its base, keeping it tucked away until use. Inspired by woodpecker nesting holes, it's a smart solution for compact storage. The mortar is hand turned American Sycamore, finished with mineral oil and beeswax. The Pestle is Black...Read more

Dearborn Glassware

Dearborn Glassware
What says 'grown-up glassware' more than the $70 per piece price tag of the Dearborn Glassware? Maybe the intricate, fluted Borosilicate glass, or the knowledge that each piece was expertly created by master glassblowers in the Czech Republic. Borosilicate glass, if you didn't know, gives thermal resistance, which translates into a durability appropriate for daily use- it's safe to use in ovens, microwaves, and dishwashers- and that gives us all...Read more

Hoop Umbrella Stand

Hoop Umbrella Stand
When it's raining out, you'll need a spot to rest your wet umbrella. Sure, you could lean it up against a wall to let it drip down on the floor, possibly creating a safety hazard where someone could slip and fall, hurting their pride and also possibly breaking a few bones, or you could do the sensible thing and get an umbrella stand.
