Iittala Aitio Boxes

Iittala Aitio Boxes
So, you're probably developing a complex for the amount of organizational items I throw at you, but really, I'm just trying to help. Iittala's Aitio Boxes (Aitio = theatre box in Finnish) strike me as the sort of thing that would work equally well in the kitchen or in an office area, as the powder-coated steel would withstand all manner of bumps and bruises. Hang a few on the wall...Read more

Insect Memory Game

Insect Memory Game
This summer, when you're bored senseless sitting around with friends and/or family, will there be a good game for everyone to play? Let me add these extra requirements: a game for ages 4 and up, and one that won't offend anyone. Do you have one of those? Because a memory game is a friendly sort of activity that just might help those lazy synapses in your brain, and this one...Read more

Nomess Display Box

Nomess Display Box
Let's hope that the soothing shades of blue on this three piece tray set will aid your organizational skills, and encourage you to put your stuff where it belongs. It's not hard, you know, you just put in a little extra effort and your home can neat and tidy (says the person who has project folders scattered all over her desk and empty cardboard boxes in the foyer). Keep the...Read more

Clever Hook

Clever Hook
This Clever Hook was first featured on our site back in 2007, and, with the newer ("newer" being anytime after 2007) wood version, it certainly deserves another highlight. The Clever Hook has a grabbing mechanism that will immediately clasp any item that is placed on it. Think of it like pincers- little metal pincers- that keep a grip on your towel/bag/coat/whatever. Just lift up the item to remove it. There's...Read more

ONDU Pinhole Cameras MK II

ONDU Pinhole Cameras MK II
Do you remember the ONDU Pinhole Camera we posted back in 2013? If you were even a tiny bit interested, you might be happy to know that ONDU has expanded their offerings, and this time there are new features and many different sizes. Pretty exciting for anyone who's remotely interested in photography, right? Each camera is made from locally harvested and FSC certified walnut and maple wood with several fine...Read more

Grid Planks by Daphna Laurens

Grid Planks by Daphna Laurens
The lines on the Grid Planks by Daphna Laurens would certainly tempt you to arrange food precisely along the perfectly ordered grid, for at least the first few moments of food prep anyways. After that, your sanity might be questioned. Consider the smooth side for cutting, and keep the grid side pristine for serving. Designed by Daphna Laurens Material: Beech Wood Dimensions: Small 11.75 x 11.5 x 1.5 in /...Read more

Dalu Table Lamp

Dalu Table Lamp
The diminutive Dalu Table Lamp won't be the biggest light in the house, and that is exactly its charm. It's just over 10 inches tall, so it's perfect for beside the bed or tucked into a dark corner for just a bit of illumination. You might recognize a sixties era sort of vibe, and you'd be spot on, as this is a re-edition of the original designed in (drumroll) the...Read more

Hook Basket by Pinetti

Hook Basket by Pinetti
Do you like these Hook Baskets from Pinetti? Because they like you too, and want to be seen somewhere in your home. Maybe in the living area for the kid's toys? Or for keeping your collection of cashmere throws at hand? Perhaps that sounds a little silly, but, let's face it, you're not going to plonk down $375+ for a basket only to shove it in some closet for your...Read more

Ping Pong Cocktail Trays

Ping Pong Cocktail Trays
See these paddle-shaped, melamine cocktail trays? They're for your guests, so they can stand around and comfortably hold their plate piled high with hors d'oeuvres while shaking hands and sipping drinks. Their thumb goes through the hole for firm grip, and that little detail decreases the likelihood of someone spilling something that will stain your rug. And, yes, who knows, maybe an impromptu game of Ping Pong will break out...Read more

More plant-related paraphernalia for you, but this time the item on show is specifically for the herbs or flowers kept indoors on a windowsill. Set off by an oak plank base, the dark terracotta planter pot will contrast nicely with a small bouquet or your favorite herbs or sprouts without disrupting the clean/minimal vibe you've got going on in the rest of your house. Set your Japanese garden scissors (or...Read more

Water Bulb by Anderssen & Voll for Mjolk

Water Bulb by Anderssen & Voll for Mjolk
Here's a prettier water bulb for your plants, but it'll cost you a teensy bit more than some of the other options out there. Okay, maybe a lot more, but this one is more of an art object than some ol' watering bulb you'll throw out when you get sick of it, and that explains the price tag. Each one is mouth-blown and hand shaped by glass artist Gregor Herman,...Read more

Clug Clip Hanging Bike Rack

Clug Clip Hanging Bike Rack
Please don't attach your bike to a rock. You could, though, judging by Clug's main hero shot, shown above, which gives you an idea of its function and strength. I actually purchased two Clugs when it was a Kickstarter campaign, and now our two bikes are stored orderly in our entry way, and not looking like two drunken hobos crashed crazily against the wall. The Clug Clip all but disappears...Read more
