Make Co., of the Make Bike Rack fame (which we've posted before), now brings us this Wall Mounted Surfboard Rack called El Gringo.

Baskets aren't usually the first thing you'll find in a modern interior, but this Fair Trade Basket Collection possesses a sharp, sculptural quality that would do well whether used as objets d'art or as functional storage pieces. Made from palm wood, these baskets would normally warp over time, but Piet Hein Eek chose to string thin slats together to allow for shrinking and expansion.

If you like patterns and postcards, you'd best snap up this box set now. Curated by New York City's Textile Arts Center, this collection has one hundred designs from ten international designers.
