Concrete Brain Bookends

Concrete Brain Bookends
Braaiiins!! Feel free to pretend you're a zombie, and walk around disjointedly with your arms extended and your head cocked to the side whilst saying that, as it's entirely appropriate. Just don't bite into this particular brain, as the two hemispheres are made of concrete. Designer Bertrand Jayr brings these smart bookends to our bookshelves- they're excellent pieces of heavy 'gray matter' to hold your books in place. Designer: Bertrand...Read more

Aarre Wall Jewels
Pretty, aren't they? The Aarre Wall Jewels collection is made by skilled artisans in the Iittala factory. Every single one is mouth-blown, so consider them each as a unique piece of art. Perhaps you'll just need one to hang your beloved Leica, or perhaps a trio would do the trick of organizing your oft-worn coat and scarves. Fair warning: they're not inexpensive, so don't get too entranced by the jewel-like...Read more

Wrong for Hay Cork Cone and Magnetic Tower

Wrong for Hay Cork Cone and Magnetic Tower
Need a place for odd notes, photos and other such sundries? Consider Wrong For Hay's Cork Cone, as it has plenty of room for a vertical tower of pinnables.

Floating Forest by Michael Anastassiades

Floating Forest by Michael Anastassiades
Ah, thank goodness, you can now stop your search, for I've found you the perfect gift for any discerning modernist/minimalist. Each Floating Forest piece by Michael Anastassiades is composed of a hand-made brass planter that sits on the rim of any glass. By suspending a seed or plant above, growth is facilitated and exposed in its natural elegance. Now, the question is, just which one (or ones) shall you select?...Read more

Max Lamb Crockery Salt & Pepper

Max Lamb Crockery Salt & Pepper
What are these two objects? Lumps of salt? Some kind of rough plaster paperweight? Or, wait, might it be the set of salt & pepper shakers by Max Lamb? Ding, ding, ding! Your last guess was correct, and should you want to peruse the other items in the collection, be sure to take a look at the Mug, Tall Vase, and smaller Posy Vase, just to name a few.

OP-vases by Bilge Nur Saltik

OP-vases by Bilge Nur Saltik
Finding spectacular gifts for those favorite people in your life probably isn't at the top of your priority list just yet, but, don't you worry, I'm on the hunt. May I turn your attention toward this vision of a flower seen through cut glass? Thanks to visual distortions created by a kaleidoscopic effect, just one flower gives the impression of a bouquet. Yes, it is expensive, but, man-oh-man is it...Read more

Kaufmann Gathering Bench

Kaufmann Gathering Bench
Ooo, nice! We're big fans of Kaufmann Mercantile, so, of course it's exciting to see their new line of select goods. The Gathering Bench is particularly lovely, as it is made from solid Black Walnut wood, and by woodworkers in New York, no less. Think of the design like a recipe; start with a base of Scandinavian lines, throw in a fair amount of Danish mid-century modern, and then add...Read more

Tanno Free Case

Tanno Free Case
Pen and pencil cases aren't just for school-age children, you know. Those of us on the go don't want to leave our prized writing/drawing instruments behind, and a case that has a trick up its sleeve might be just the thing to keep our bags and workspaces organized (and clients and coworkers impressed?). Similar to vintage ‘trick boxes’, this Tanno Free Case requires one push of its wood button for...Read more

The Soy Sauce Cruet

The Soy Sauce Cruet
A spill-proof Soy Sauce Cruet? Pfft, you say. I didn't believe it either until seeing it in action. It has a beak-like spout that's built into the adjustable cap; soy sauce (or olive oil or vinegar) simply flows out without a drip. Is this a game changer for anyone who loves their soy sauce (or olive oil or vinegar)? I think so. Designer/Maker: The / Ishizuka Glass Origin: JAPAN Material:...Read more
