Dustpan and Brush, Ole Jensen

It's not often that we actually admire the shape of a dustpan. Ole Jensen was inspired to create this particular set when cleaning his studio with a folded newspaper in one hand and a broom in the other. This version has a dustpan made of a thin, flat sheet of polypropylene with a natural bristle brush and beechwood handle. Simply slip the brush handle through the grommet to hang the ...Read more

Swoop Storage Bag

Sadly, the retailer (spoonsisters.com) we originally linked to when we posted this Swoop Storage Bag back in 2011 has closed its virtual doors. Not to worry, we found another place that carries it, with other colors and sizes, no less. With the thirtysomethings now having kids en masse, the complaint of toys taking over an entire home is more often heard than not. How in the world to curb this ...Read more

Alfredo Carafe

The stopper on this carafe looks like it could double as a spinning top, though I suppose you would want to be rather careful about suggesting that to (childish) guests, as you'd not want it lost or damaged. That said, it'd be a lovely serving vessel for lemonade or juice for these last few days of summer. Designed by Alfredo Häberli for Georg Jensen. Size: 1 L Material: Glass, oak ...Read more

Slow Chair & Ottoman

Whenever I see the Slow Chair by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra, I am reminded of the Maison Flottante where the chair is shown prominently as the main living area seating. Would you believe that the inspiration behind the Slow Chair was ladies' tights? I'm sure you can, as the strong, precisely shaped knit is stretched over the metal frame, quite similar to a fitted stocking. This sling cover provides ...Read more

CMYK Up Lamp

What the what is going on with this CMYK Up Lamp? Dennis Parren has combined red, yellow, and blue LED bulbs to create an interesting mix of light. When the three primary colors are combined, you'll see a white light. However, when one of these color bulbs is blocked by the structural form of the lamp itself, then the other two combine to produce tertiary shadows (cyan, magenta, and yellowish ...Read more

Slide Mirror

Sad news: it looks like there's not a retailer stateside that carries these mirrors anymore. Happy news: you can buy them directly from the designer, Sylvain Willenz. If you buy either of these mirrors, you might just have to get the Cuboid Doormat to continue the 3D illusion. Maybe add the Half a Table by Niels Van Eijk & Miriam Van der Lubbe and some seating from Acne for a distinct ...Read more

Chieftains Chair

When we originally posted the Chieftains Chair designed by Finn Juhl, it was 2011 and it cost $11,500. Today's price finds it at $17,175, which, unfortunately, is much higher than the rate of inflation. And so goes the world of design classics and their price fluctuations. Inspired by primitive weaponry, Juhl originally created the chair for the 1949 Cabinetmakers’ Guild in Copenhagen. I've long admired this chair, and while the price is firmly outside ...Read more

Wörther Wood Mechanical Pencil

I've held my share of mechanical pencils, and there's something entirely comfortable about the hexagonal, thick barrel of the Wörther Wood Mechanical Pencil. That ergonomic shape starts to become very important when you're sketching or writing for longer periods of time, as you might know if you're in any creative field. Plus, the fact the 3 mm thick graphite lead doesn't need sharpening means that it's an excellent tool for ...Read more
