Leoht Tote

Leoht Tote

A handbag? I know, I know, we don't normally post handbags, but stick with me here, because this particular one has something that's worth talking about. It may not be enough to convince you (or the others around you) to abandon your (their) current It Bag, but it does offer some pretty cool technology that we're hoping will soon catch on when it comes to luxury brands. The Leoht Tote ...Read more

Clothes Rack by Ferm Living

Clothes Rack by Ferm Living

Would you like an alternate version of this other clothing rail ($399) we posted a while ago? Well, Ferm Living has a rather similar idea in the clothes rack you see above. An iron rod hangs from the ceiling by harness leather belts, so there's a material/textural difference- a nice touch, don't you think? Your wallet will be happy that it's less expensive than the other one, and your clothes ...Read more

Neon Mfg. Signs

Neon Mfg. Signs

What if neon signs were more affordable? Maybe you would snap one up faster than you could say 'do i really need one' or maybe you couldn't care less. Either way, some of us like that neon glow, and will spend the next few minutes contemplating just what word or short saying we'd most like to see each and every day, and then we'll be happy that we could order ...Read more

Senz Windproof Umbrella

Senz Windproof Umbrella

In preparation for the upcoming April showers, let's ask ourselves this: do we have a decent umbrella? And, by 'decent' I mean one that won't upturn at a gust of wind, nor frustrate us with its finicky folding/unfolding. Yep, it's just as I thought. Most of us could use an upgrade to a Senz Windproof Umbrella. The Senz has an aerodynamic shape that resists winds of up to 62 miles ...Read more

Wald Plug Lamp

Wald Plug Lamp

The Wald Plug Lamp is a floor lamp without the floor. Huh? It plugs directly into a wall socket, using the plug connection as its sole support. So, technically, I suppose it's actually a wall light, but we'll accept the categorization of a floor lamp because of its height. Might I point out how much easier this would be to install than a wall sconce? It could be a clever ...Read more

Ito Bindery Drawing Pads

Ito Bindery Drawing Pads

How can a drawing pad be beautiful? Just look at the perfectly straight edges, the coal-black (and recycled) cardboard backing, the geometric proportions, and the satin-smooth paper of the Ito Bindery Drawing Pads. And, of course, the lack of any apparent branding. A little too precious for the average note-taker? Perhaps, but that doesn't stop me from wanting a stack of these pads on my desk pronto. Let's toss out ...Read more

Black Ember Modular Urban Backpacks

Black Ember Modular Urban Backpacks

Do you want to look like you're on a some sort of urban military mission? That's what I think of when I see Black Ember Modular Urban Backpacks and the various mag-lock pouches and accessories that may be added. The three packs offered are certainly more sleek and resolved than the previous design, and the modular nature of the mag-lock pouches is a smart way to customize how you carry ...Read more

PH 5 Pendant Light

PH 5 Pendant Light

If you're going to buy a PH 5 Pendant Light, it might as well be on sale. This classic light was designed by Poul Henningsen in 1958 and remains one of the smarter choices for glare-free illumination. You're probably familiar with the slightly more popular PH Artichoke by Henningsen, yet the price tag on that makes it a little less attainable. The curved reflectors on the PH5 ensure that light is directed ...Read more

Hay Denmark Pivot Table

Hay Denmark Pivot Table

I bet you'll have some fun with these Pivot Tables. They're made from steel circles, and each one is folded in different ways in order to create varying geometric compositions. Four variants plus a multifunctional mount let you place the Pivot in just the right spot, and I dare say it would be a shame to order only one, as it seems like a grouping would make the most impact. ...Read more

Extō Extension Cord

Extō Extension Cord

What, you think you know all about the normcore trend last year? Well, I challenge you to a duel. I present the Extō Extension Cord, which is my answer to what normcore looks like in the home furnishings/accessories arena. Can you come up with a better example of an unpretentious-on-purpose-yet-still-sort-of-attractive, functional product? Hmm, we'll see. Now, down to the details. The Extō is a modular power source that has ...Read more
