Kartio Glassware

Kartio Glassware
Glassware may not be the most exciting thing to you, but, hey, you use it every single day for your juice/water/spirits. Why not upgrade to something more visually appealing than the mix-matched set you've had since college? You can't go wrong with Iittala's Kartio Collection, as the series dates back to 1958, when Kaj Franck first created their simple, balanced design. There's quite a few subtle colors (you're sure to...Read more

Meet Bench

Meet Bench
Look at this cute little guy. He's got slender steel tubes for legs and a rounded rectangular seat perfect for perching on while you remove your shoes. Or perhaps you'll share the seat with someone else- there's just enough room for two. Norm Architects liked the size of traditional piano benches, which are just wide enough for a pair of people. The Meet comes with a removable non-slip felt cover...Read more

ButcherBlock by HollerDesign

ButcherBlock by HollerDesign
These end grain ButcherBlocks are very durable; the design allows you to cut in between the fibers of the wood instead of across them like most cutting boards. This makes for easy maintenance and a very long lifetime, which are two important features for any cutting board over the $100 mark. Available in walnut, maple or cherry. Each board features HollerDesign's signature bowdock circular wood inset with its “born on”...Read more

Welf Wall Shelf

You have the choice of small (24"w) or large (40"), and there's an added felt pad to make a softer landing spot for keys, phones, and other miscellany. Welf Small Wall Shelf, $89.00...Read more

Cha Kettle Teapot

Cha Kettle Teapot
How many kettles look like they belong on a tablecloth amongst finger sandwiches and scones? Not too many. The stainless steel Cha Teapot was designed by Naoto Fukasawa- that's worth mentioning, of course- and has a magnetic steel bottom that makes it suitable for induction cooking. A simple curved handle and knob in black thermoplastic resin completes the design. Design by Naoto Fukasawa. Made in Italy by Alessi. Dimensions: 7.5"...Read more

Picture Ledge

Picture Ledge
One might argue that 'clever' may not be the best description of Raumgestalt's Picture Ledge, as it is, in fact, two pieces of wood held together by an elastic band. The more craftier among us may be able to replicate the design with just a little elbow grease (to cut the wood) and determination (to search for the right sort of rubber band). However, if you refuse to pick up...Read more

Power Planters by Chen Chen & Kai Williams

Power Planters by Chen Chen & Kai Williams
Do you love these Power Planters by Chen Chen & Kai Williams because their own saucers are integrated into the design or because they remind you of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man's legs? In either case, they're excellent options for holding your green, leafy friends, as they'll catch extra water and dirt without being completely (and often horribly) obvious like the alternatives.
