Hee Chair & Barstool

It's been nine years since the Hee Seating Collection first hit the market, but it looks just as good now as it did back in 2004. Designer Hee Welling was originally inspired by the interior of a refrigerator, but you won't find that on Hay's site anymore, as the many other attributes of the seating collection have the spotlight. The chairs are made from galvanized solid steel, with outdoor powder coating ...Read more

El Gringo – Wall Mounted Surfboard Rack

Make Co., of the Make Bike Rack fame (which we've posted before), now brings us this Wall Mounted Surfboard Rack called El Gringo. Correct me if I'm wrong, but there aren't so many surfboard racks that look at home in your living/dining/hallway area as there are that look like a store display system. And you certainly don't want your home to feel like you're selling surfboards, do you? ...Read more

Arne Jacobsen Tea Towel Set

If you love the work of Arne Jacobsen, you might as well get his typography Tea Towel Set alongside your Jacobsen cups and perhaps the Jacobsen Milk & Sugar Set. Not to worry, I'm sure there are more items to come along- let's just hope the powers that be don't go crazy and plaster his 1937 typography over every possible thing (like they did with Pantone). Made in India of cotton. Machine ...Read more

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 string thin slats together to allow for shrinking and expansion. "Widely used in Southeast Asia, these ...Read more

The Pattern Box: 100 Postcards

If you like patterns and postcards, you'd best snap up this box set now. Curated by New York City's Textile Arts Center, this collection has one hundred designs from ten international designers. I'd be tempted just to keep it as a pattern resource for inspiration purposes, but then it'd be a shame not to share such interesting postcards with friends and family (and postal workers, of course).

Grey Dot with Orange Rug

If you need a soft surface on that 'fifth wall' of your living area or bedroom, do consider a this grey dot rug with subtle orange lines. It's a quiet color scheme with that little hint of color, which means it'd be easy to work some designer magic by adding a few orange accents- maybe a pillow, maybe a lamp, it's up to you.

Flip Mirror

Oh, here's a good idea- let's compare the state of our bathroom countertops. Are yours organized, clean, and perfect? Mine are clean, but they're certainly not organized and perfect. Do you have a table mirror to trim any unwanted head or facial hair, or apply your more detailed makeup wizardry? I do, but it's not as nice as this one. Inspired by a rear-view mirror, Javier Moreno designed this mirror ...Read more
