Platinum Scratch World Map

Platinum Scratch World Map
The Scratch Map has been around for a while (2011 was our first glimpse), but did you know there's a Platinum version that might be a little easier to fit into your home's color scheme? You know how it works- you simply scratch off the top layer to reveal the colorful map below. It's a fun way to keep track of the different places you've been to around the world,...Read more

Cocentric Flush Dome

Cocentric Flush Dome
Prepare yourself, for this dome lighting fixture isn't what most of us would call affordable. However, it is handcrafted on a lathe (take note of the perfect concentric grooves) and is available in several different American hardwoods. Plus, it can either be positioned on the wall or the ceiling, so you're not locked in to just one location. Handcrafted in USA. Updated price and link; originally posted Mar 31, 2016....Read more

Terracotta Lantern

Terracotta Lantern
This lantern is strange, and that's probably why we like it. The handmade terracotta lantern has a handle on its backside to make it easier to move around- perhaps to and fro your outdoor dining area and inside? It certainly won't be mistaken for anything found at your local hardware store, as it has an odd-yet-friendly sculptural presence. Comes with a beeswax candle. Materials: terracotta 10" x 6" x 8"...Read more

Clemens Auer Tweezers

Clemens Auer Tweezers
Ordinary tweezers aren't for you, or maybe they are until you see these odd tweezers by Clemens Auer. The circular solution was inspired by the pinching gesture, and is a unique alternative to those other typical grooming instruments. And, apparently, they are "functionally superior." I believe it. Winner of a 2015 Wallpaper Design Award, and a 2016 German Design Award. Hand-crafted from a single strip of steel by a metalsmith...Read more

Custom Satellite Map Puzzle

Custom Satellite Map Puzzle
Okay, this is kind of fun: it's a puzzle featuring a satellite image of your home. You'll get to see an area of 1 mile north-to-south and 1.5 miles east-to-west, and there's a few irregular pieces thrown in to keep it special (the letters H-O-M-E, and a house-shaped piece right where your home is located). Maybe it's a good thing to get to memorialize your current digs? It would also...Read more

Brace Wall Hook

Brace Wall Hook
Here's a wall hook that does double duty: the looped brace gives you an extra spot to clip your keys or hang scarves or umbrellas. It's also extremely kind to your clothes, as there's no angular hook to create havoc in the neck area of shirts or jackets. The cast bronze shape is like a jewelry piece for your entryway; just enough subtle glitz to give a sense of specialness....Read more

Press Iced Tea Bottle
Iced tea, anyone? Instead of steeping, straining, and then chilling, this Pressed Iced Tea Bottle gives you a "brew-and-go" experience. Add hot water to your tea in the outer chamber, let it steep, then press the ice-filled inner chamber down. Add the lid and you're ready to go, with brewed iced tea in hand.

This allows your denim to hang appropriately alongside your other clothes without crumples or creases. Air dry them on the hanger, and you'll have none of the shrinkage or wear that dryers often cause (plus less energy use!). Shall we say this hanger...Read more

String Lights by onefortythree

String Lights by onefortythree
Don't ask yourself 'why do I need these string lights?' Instead, ask yourself 'why don't I need these string lights?' After all, you work very hard, don't you? And, it does get quite dark at night, so what better way to illuminate a special spot indoors than with a set of string lights with natural brass sockets and black cloth twisted cord?

Design Letters Message Board

Design Letters Message Board
Who doesn't love a message board? Sure, it's for important updates, but it's also prime territory for a funny joke or a heartfelt message. I've always been attracted to the utility of the black letter boards found in churches and civic centers, but this perforated board from Design Letters does the same job in a prettier outfit. Pin lists and reminders to its surface and use the letters and numbers...Read more
