Twin Carafe

Twin Carafe
This double-walled carafe is just about as simple as it gets. For coffee, use the center of the lid as a pour over set. Not big on coffee? The lid's ridged edge filters loose-leaf tea. Pretty smart that the lid works for both, right? Without the lid, the glass carafe works overtime to hold water, juice, or maybe even (if you're feeling nice) flowers.

Duck Duck Pillows

Duck Duck Pillows
Just so you know, the Duck Duck Pillows have a bunch of fun color combinations, and they're all kind of perfect for the sofa, or a reading chair, or as an accent pillow (or two) on the bed (don't go overboard*). My favorite? Color Mix 5 or Color Mix 3, I can't quite decide. Duck Duck Small Lumbar Pillow, $59.00 Duck Duck Square Pillow, $89.00 Duck Duck Large Lumbar Pillow,...Read more

Kime Shoe Horn

Kime Shoe Horn
Do you sometimes need a shoe horn? You know, that thing that helps you put on your nice shoes without crushing their heels? If so, get this one, because it's beautiful. Perfectly symmetrical and carved from a single piece of wood, the Kime Shoe Horn appears to be an art piece rather than a functional tool. Lucky for us, it's both. “Kime” means texture or wood grain in Japanese and...Read more

Concrete Trivet

Concrete Trivet
Remember the Table Tiles Optic? Now there's a concrete trivet with the same 3D illusion, which means you'll be able to join several together for a larger mosaic pattern on your tabletop. Each trivet fits a kettle or saucepan, so double (or triple) them up for larger casserole dishes. Hand wash. Not microwave or oven safe.

Bub Table Lamp

Bub Table Lamp
This isn't the first or last bulb-stuck-in-the-side-of-a-lampshade you'll see, but it is perhaps the most alluring. A bulb pierces the side of the hand blown glass shade, at just the right height for a friendly, floating apparition. The olive tint gives the lamp an extra amicable look that's sure to get along with other pieces in your collection. Olive tinted blown glass Cloth-covered cord with inline switch Maximum wattage 100W...Read more

Dusen Dusen Sheet Sets

Dusen Dusen Sheet Sets
What might you pair with your new Hay Polygon Quilt? How about Dusen Dusen's Alphabet or Objects Sheet Set? Yes, that makes for a lot of shapes and pattern, but that's what makes a bed fun... riight?

How To Live Canvas Tote Bags

How To Live Canvas Tote Bags
I'm a mind reader. I know you're thinking that these canvas tote bags are sort of expensive, and they are... sort of. But, look close at the bottom seams and handles, and you'll see a bag built for daily use. Each bag has a minimal, quiet vibe; edges are clean, devoid of stitching, to better highlight the material- that's special. Interior pockets keep smaller necessities organized, and there are a...Read more
