Scout Tall Stool

Scout Tall Stool
I know finding the right barstools are tough, and that's exactly why I keep my eyes out for anything remotely interesting or decent. Surname's Scout Stools are more than decent, they're downright perfect. No frills except for a brass or copper finish on the footrest, each stool is made from antique heart pine salvaged from dismantled New York area buildings. A gentle slope to the seat keeps your backside comfortable,...Read more

Circus Pouf by Normann Copenhagen

Circus Pouf by Normann Copenhagen
The Circus Pouf by Normann Copenhagen is so fun I can hardly resist adding one or two somewhere in my living room. Plus, it's now available in velour, and, just in case you were wondering, yes, that does increase its appeal. It's so round and friendly- I bet we'd all sit back and put up our feet more often if this little guy was around. Use it as a footrest,...Read more

Flotiform Jewelry Stand

Keep your favorites out where you can see them, and you'll be able to enjoy them twice as much. Designed by Tia Keobounpheng and...Read more

Ovo iPhone amplifier

Ovo iPhone amplifier
Add this to your list of things you absolutely don't need but want sort of badly. I mean, come on, it's a passive amplifier made from Carrera marble for your iPhone. The shape is carved very slowly from a single block of marble (does the price make more sense now?) and works solely from mechanic sound diffusion. No cords, no batteries, just plain ol' geometry working to optimize your listening...Read more

Frame Canopy Bed

Frame Canopy Bed
Huh? This seems like a price too good to be true for a canopy bed. I always thought Room&Board's Architecture Bed was the best price in the business, but now this Frame Canopy Bed just might take the spot. Canopy beds are excellent for creating a room within a room, which is very suitable for large rooms with high ceilings. Will you get tired of the the brass plated corners...Read more

Viteo Outdoor Shower

Viteo Outdoor Shower
Does anyone else feel like they need an outdoor shower? It's sort of a no-brainer if you've got a pool or lakeside retreat, or if you just love to bathe al fresco. But what do you do when there's not existing plumbing to support a regular shower? You get an outdoor shower that hooks up to your garden hose, that's what. Take a look at the Viteo Outdoor Shower. It's...Read more

Workstead is fast becoming a favorite lighting source, which is no surprise when you consider their array of fixtures with adjustable orientation. The Helios Table Lamp, a newer design, has a large brass dish positioned opposite a single light source. This brass dish partially obscures and reflects the light, echoing the movement of larger celestial bodies and their occasional eclipses.

Concrete Lamp by Menu

Concrete Lamp by Menu
Here's another smallish lamp, and this one is a charmer. A round concrete base holds an oversize glass light bulb with a little brass button to control brightness. That touch of brass keeps the design dressed up- think of it like a hint of expensive jewelry on an otherwise utilitarian outfit. A friend of mine who has one talked about it with reverence, and, as this friend knows good design...Read more
