Hay & Scholten & Baijings’ Dot Carpets

Superb graphic patterns are nothing new from Scholten & Baijings, but apply those superb graphic patterns to a carpet made from over a thousand felted balls, and we'll sit up and pay attention. Did you catch the 'made from over a thousand felted balls' bit? Each of those woolen felt balls are hand stitched, so that gives you an idea of the time that goes into each carpet and makes the ...Read more

Minimis Outdoor Luminaires

What is this, you say... and I know we're both not talking about the half-dollar coin, but the small, round, metal object next to it. That's a very tiny-aperture recessed LED indoor/outdoor luminaire- called the 1Puck LP- for your walls, floors, decks, and ceilings. And it packs a powerful punch: it consumes only 1 watt, yet throws a 12 to 14 foot beam. There's also the Thumbtack LP, which is a tiny-aperture ...Read more

Miyake Table Lamp

To change position of this lamp, you simply place the base on one of its 24 faces. I'd have to see this in person to really know how easy it would be to maneuver, but I do like the simplicity of base-stem-light with no extra joints or pivots. Also, is there something a little golf-like about the faceted white base and club-ish head? Design by Arihiro Miyake, 2009. 16.5"L X 23.6"H Cast ...Read more

Pendel vs. Suitor

And, now, we have a loveseat vs. loveseat scenario, with each 2-seater sofa having similar proportions and styling, especially in their higher backs and curved corners. The bases and fabric are completely different, of course, but please play along with me here in guessing which one costs $2,301 more, and do ignore the fabric when making your guess...
