Chopping Blocks

Chopping Blocks
Nice! These solid American Ash chopping boards are made from off-cuts. That means every circle, octagon, or square board you buy, you're reducing the amount of wood that ends up in a landfill. Each block has a rope handle for convenient hanging for storage (or for swinging it around your head when you want to look crazy or dangerous). All Douglas and Bec products are handmade in New Zealand by...Read more

Bambus Glass Carafe

Bambus Glass Carafe
How about another nice carafe to hold your hydration source? This handblown carafe was inspired by the bamboo of Zen gardens; it has an elegant handle and a drinking glass that fits perfectly on top. As stated before, a carafe lets you rely less on plastic bottles of water (hooray!) and more on your own two feet... to get water from the office cooler or your fridge's filter. Perhaps while...Read more

Hose Jockey Wall Mount

Hose Jockey Wall Mount
If a messy hose situation is ruining the appeal of your outdoor area, you'd best get things sorted with an appropriate storage solution. There's many storage options around for much less than this one, but most are slightly depressing in that they're made of plastic or have unnecessary/disappointing decorative accents. Ten10 Design's Hose Jockey, on the other hand, keeps hoses tidy without offending your design sensibilities, and is made of...Read more

Paulistano Armchair in Canvas

Paulistano Armchair in Canvas
It's rare that outdoor furniture is described as exciting, mostly because it's meant for outdoors and not many of us have the time and money to spend on amazing furnishings that will only get rained on. Such is the state of things. However, the Paulistano's canvas cover means it can go outside and be its comfortable pleasing-to-the-eye self, thus saving us from the unfortunate cry of 'there's no decent outdoor...Read more
