Acacia Honey Dipper

Hmm, perhaps we all need to upgrade our honey dippers- if we even have one to begin with, that is. The hexagonal shape of a honeycomb attached to a polished stainless steel handle allows honey to drizzle easily into your tea or toast. Designer Miriam Mirri brought this clever idea into existence, and we might just have to say it's the coolest honey-drizzling tool to ever cross our computer screens. ...Read more

Designed by Norway Says for Muuto. Each glass holds approximately 10oz (300ml). Made in Thailand. One set includes 3 glasses. Purchase ...Read more

Holmes Sconce

It doesn't take much deductive reasoning to select this Holmes Sconce from Schoolhouse Electric as one of the better options in the marketplace. It might be inspired by the classic candle sconce in the days before electricity, but the minimalist lines in its steel backplate marks it firmly in the present. Make it your own by choosing a specialty bulb, and know that the smaller size would fit almost anywhere ...Read more

Boya Lamp

This little lamp takes its inspiration from the sea- think lighthouse beacons and buoys. At 8.5" high and 7.5" in diameter, it's small enough to fit on a desk or large side table without taking up a lot of visual space, especially as there's no traditional cloth lampshade.
