The Simon, iPad Case

Remember the crocheted laptop case (The Steven) from Krochet Kids International?

Capello Lamp

Let's just get this straight: this lamp is $160. Compared to the Love Letter Light (also by molo), which ran around the $400 mark, that's a bargain.

Next, the little paper cap (“cappello” in Italian) is attached to the steel wire with a simple magnetic connection, which allows you ...Read more
