Hako Portable Bath Tissue Holder

Okay, any guesses as to what this handled container is for? You know it's tissue if you read the title, but don't go thinking it's just for the bathroom. I have yet to see a box of facial tissues that are available in a nondescript design, so this holder would provide an excellent container that's pleasant to look at and very easy to carry around the house with a runny ...Read more

Tangerine Barstool

I meant what I said about looking out for decent barstools. This Tangerine Barstool by Simon James for Resident Studio has a subtle curve to its seat to make things comfortable. Solid oak contrasts nicely with the dark steel crossbars to provide a perch that quietly performs its function without commanding too much attention. Call me crazy, but that's refreshing amongst all the other crazy, colorful stools that are just ...Read more

Clippa Mini Tools Clip

Okay, seeing as anything decent gadget-wise makes it onto our pages, it would seem silly to eliminate this Clippa purely because it takes the shape of a hair clip I don't like. Besides, maybe you do like the hair clip I'm referencing, and therefore you love the idea of a clip that incorporates screwdrivers, a ruler, a cutter, a bottle opener, and a 5/16 wrench all in the petite size of 6 ...Read more

Stockholm Sideboard

Few things manage to hit just the right note of elegant simplicity, but the Stockholm Sideboard by Mario Ruiz for Punt is perfectly pitched.
