Design Letters Message Board

Design Letters Message Board
Who doesn't love a message board? Sure, it's for important updates, but it's also prime territory for a funny joke or a heartfelt message.

Pin lists and reminders to its surface and use the letters and numbers...Read more

A 2018 calendar is exactly what you don't need in August, but, hey, why not get ahead of things and snap up one now? I still stand by my earlier thinking that this calendar is a must-have for anyone with lycanthropic leanings, as business can be scheduled around inopportune times.

There's nothing wrong with having your head in the clouds every now and then, or so says Most Modest and Aces of Space.

RestartMilano Lamps

RestartMilano Lamps
I hesitate to use the word 'dainty' to describe these lamps from RestartMilano, mostly because it brings to mind doilies and frail flowers.

And, as an update, the Short Wall Lamp is now on sale. Dimensions:...Read more
