Plum Cocktail Shaker

Let's be honest: some of Tom Dixon's products look like they should be on the altar of some strange, futuristic church (Cog Candelabra) or else an excellent receptacle for cremains (Beat Vessel). That might sound a little morbid or serious, but I mean it as a compliment. For instance, the Plum Cocktail Shaker could easily live in some sacred place with its bright copper plating. However, considering its purpose, best ...Read more

Smash Cup

You can plan to donate or recycle your big travel mug, because you won't need it once the Smash Cup ships in October. But you love your travel mug, don't you? Well, is your mug collapsible and highly portable? No? I thought so. The Smash Cup is a reusable cup that can be 'smashed' down after you've finished your coffee/tea. Fun, right? It's leak-proof, so you can stuff it ...Read more

Peg Board

The old peg board: we all know it has its usefulness, but it could stand for a makeover. That's the thought behind Human Crafted's Peg Board. Made by hand from machined walnut, each board also comes with a bungee cord, which gives the board various storage functions. Choose a few accessory hooks and you have more possible customizations for specific items (kitchen tools, keys, etc.). Combine all three sizes for ...Read more

Funnell – EJECT | WEAR

You know when you're riding your bike or walking on the street and all of the sudden it starts to rain? You have to stop, get out your rain gear- if you have it- and put it on, then pedal or walk to your destination partially soaked, which is really no fun at all. That's exactly where this backpack comes into play. A jacket ejects out of the backpack quickly (...Read more

Handy Gold Caddy

If you're going to have anything on your desk or dining table called a 'caddy' you might as well make it gold, or gold-plated, at least. A black pine handle shows off the oh-so-shiny gold, and it could hold your mail, pens and notepads just as easily as flatware and napkins. Less is usually more, so don't go overboard with other gold accessories. You don't want to blind coworkers or ...Read more

Reclaimed Wood Tree Swing

Made from salvaged antique flooring, this swing from Peg and Awl has a vintage look that will fit in any backyard, especially when hung from a large tree branch. Natural tung oil keeps the seat water resistant and a ...Read more

Cross, Hex, and Tri Pendants

If money was not a concern, I'm sure many of us would opt for one of these pendants designed by Resident Studio. Aluminum or brass channels have LEDs hidden inside to keep the shape extremely clean and sculptural. The results are a group of light fixtures that double as art objects; each could provide a modern contrast with more traditional interiors or fit in easily with similarly minimal/modern furnishings. ...Read more

Perimeter Tray

I know, a serving tray is not on the top of your list on this Monday morning after the holiday weekend. I wouldn't care much either, except it's the Perimeter Tray, and if you remember from our previous post last year, it normally retails for $195. And now MoMA Store has it on sale for $139.95 ($125.95 members). That's a price that one could afford for a nice tray made of reclaimed walnut ...Read more

The Chimney Box

Fire and being outdoors go hand in hand, don't they? There's lots of options available to house a small fire, but I doubt any of them come close to the efficiency of the Chimney Box by Tom Goodson. Handmade in Texas, each Chimney Box is made out of 1/4 inch, 1/8 inch and 14 gauge steel. A triangular shaped hearth allows for wood to be burned "teepee" style; this design allows for a ...Read more

Moon Dominoes! I'd guess almost all ages could play this game, though don't let any small children/toddlers get anywhere near this lovely painted wood set, or else you'll have small bite marks all over them.

You and Me Ping Pong Table

Pingpong anyone? Imagine special meals around this dining table: a nice dinner with the family, then bring out the net and it's every man/woman for himself/herself. The first serve goes straight into the mashed potatoes and the second hits your Uncle (accidentally, of course, he got in the way when he was clearing the dishes) because you were overzealous with your best backhand stroke. You can't let [insert ...Read more
