Terracotta Funnel by Grain

Terracotta Funnel by Grain

Why do you need a Terracotta Funnel? Beats me, but I know I'd use it for moving my matcha latte from a mixing bowl into a coffee cup, similar to the one shown above. Maybe you'd use it for funneling other drinks into other cups, or soups into fancy, small containers, but any way you use it, know that you're using a natural, sustainably made, and foodsafe tool. Made exclusively ...Read more

KeySmart

KeySmart

Until technology allows us to enter all buildings and vehicles without physical keys, we're going to have to deal with the mess that is the usual keyring. KeySmart aims to organize keys in a swiss army style holder, with keys folding into a compact handle instead of jingle-jangling all over the place. Would you believe it could hold up to 100 keys? That'd be one hefty keychain. You can also add ...Read more

Sand Containers

Sand Containers

Do not, I repeat, do not underestimate the value of containers you look at and use everyday. Sure, a toothbrush or pen holder is meant for function, but there's no reason why it can't be a pleasure to look at as well. The Sand Containers are handmade from a mixture of natural stone powder and resin with a wood divider/lid to keep things tidy. I think they've won the ...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?

Fair Trade Basket Collection

Fair Trade Basket Collection

Baskets aren't usually the first thing you'll find in a modern interior, but this Fair Trade Basket Collection possesses a sharp, sculptural quality that would do well whether used as objets d'art or as functional storage pieces. Made from palm wood, these baskets would normally warp over time, but Piet Hein Eek chose to specify thin slats strung together to allow for shrinking and expansion. "Each piece was handcrafted in ...Read more
