Lazy Suzi 66

A while ago someone wrote in enquiring after modern Lazy Susans, and here we are, months after the initial request with a smacker of an option. I doubt most of us will want to spend five Benjamins on something that passes the food around with minimal effort, but, hey, more power to you if you're in love with the optical effects.

Tractor vs. Metro Barstool

Hmm, these two stools are very similar, aren't they? Is one flattering the other by imitating certain aspects of design or is it just a case of blatant copying? One was designed in 2000/2001 and the other showed up this recently this year. One costs four times what the other does, for good reason if the descriptions are anything to go by. I'll leave it to you to decide if it's ...Read more

DAAME Leather Laptop Tote

Whoa, it's about time. If you're of the female persuasion and you've ever searched for an appropriate laptop bag, you know it's hell.

Fender Floor Lamp

Some of the most interesting interiors have a mix of modern and traditional elements, which is why some of us are always drawn towards pieces with a sense of history. After seeing the price on this Fender Floor Lamp from Wilkos Electric, I certainly was sold; I think it will live next to one of my more modern armchairs. Each Fender is individually handcrafted by Maciek Wilkos in his Montré...Read more
