Concrete Brick Lamp by Hyfen

Concrete Brick Lamp by Hyfen
This LED lamp has no switch, shade, or wires, which begs the question, how on earth do you turn it on? Well, it's more of an intuitive system, so, you simply raise it in an upright position to turn it on. Lay it facedown to turn it off. It's completely portable- remember, no wires- so, pick it up and take it with you from room to room to get a...Read more

Swedese Spin Stool

Swedese Spin Stool
The good news is the Spin Stool from Swedese in now on sale over at the Finnish Design Shop. The bad news is that shipping to the United States is sort of expensive- you'd still save a little cash, just not as much as if you were in the EU/UK. Made from laminated ash veneer, the Spin Stool is available in black, white, ash, grey, yellow, orange, and blue. $357.00...Read more

Herman Big Bag

Herman Big Bag
Okay, raise your hand if you use or have used Ikea's large, blue shopping bag around your home or for other errands. Don't worry, you won't be ostracized, as I'm guilty of the same. It just goes to show that really large totes can be extremely useful. Ferm Living's Herman Big Bag slides in as an alternative option, as it measures in at 26" long with a 15" and 13"...Read more

Dymaxion Folding Globe

Dymaxion Folding Globe
You may be familiar with Buckminster Fuller's 1946 patented a map of Earth, as it presents no visible distortion of the relative sizes of land masses. Designer Brendan Ravenhill has taken Fuller's projection (and architect Shoji Sadao's hand drawn 1954 Dymaxion Projection) and turned it into a magnetic folding globe, which means we all have something to do with our hands next time we're waiting for a brainstorming session to...Read more

Snowe Bath Towels

Snowe Bath Towels
If you need to refresh your bath towels, you need to look at Snowe's offerings. I ended up buying their Starter Bathe Bundle last year* and I can honestly say they're the nicest towels I've ever owned. They're soft and lightweight, and soo much better than the top-of-the-line towels I used to buy from you know where. I am still impressed with the quality, so much so that I ended...Read more

X-Cap Light Up Hat

X-Cap Light Up Hat
Headlight plus hat? Sign me up, because who knows what outdoor exploring we'll be up to when the winter evenings are here? The removable head lamp clips into and out of the beanie so you can charge (via USB) the 120-lumen light. I'd say this is an improvement over single strap headlamps, as the beanie is less likely to slip off the ol' noggin, don't you think? One Size Fits...Read more
