Portiko Extension Cord

Portiko Extension Cord
You know the problem. All those charging cords and not enough outlets. It leads to a genuine mess, if not full-on fighting over who gets to power their device first. That's where the Portiko comes in, and it'll at least help a little if it doesn't solve the whole issue outright. It's a 6-foot extension cord with two outlets and two USB ports, so you can pretty much think of...Read more

Stick-Up Sticks

Stick-Up Sticks
Did you think the Stick-Up Sticks were coathooks? I did, and I don't think I'm disappointed to find out that they're magnets instead. Where will you put them? Possibly the fridge, bulletin board, or any other metal surface could use some photos or notes. Stick a few Stick-Up Sticks there to start, and then see where else you could use them. Designed By Bower Material: Beech Wood & Magnet Dimensions:...Read more

Tableau by Pikaplant
Hooray! Those of us still struggling to keep houseplants alive now have a savior: the Tableau by Pikaplant. The Tableau incorporates a water reservoir so that our plants can drink when needed- even we're away on a vacation (or just incredibly forgetful). The reservoir will hold enough water for up to three plants for a month, so they'll be happy and healthy for at least that long. No electricity needed,...Read more

Yellow Leaf Hammocks

Yellow Leaf Hammocks
Did you have a nice Memorial Day Weekend? Now that summer is unofficially here, perhaps we should discuss hammocks. Yea or nay? I believe the correct answer is 'yea'- though if you voted 'nay' it's probably due to the fact that most hammocks aren't the most aesthetically pleasing things. However, Yellow Leaf Hammocks have several that look entirely decent, and you'll probably even grow to love the stripes (colorful or...Read more

Prism Magnifier

Prism Magnifier
You might not need the Prism Magnifier today, but you might make use of it the next time some tiny text with fine details needs a closer look. When you don't make use if its magnifying properties, it will sure look nice sitting atop that stack of other paperwork that you may or may not have beside your internet machine. 2% of the proceeds of Prism Magnifier sales is donated...Read more

Karui Trays

Karui Trays
Pretty, jewel-tone leather contrasts nicely with the polished brass perimeters of the Karui Trays by Gam Fratesi for Skultuna. "Karui" means "light" and "soft" in Japanese (there, look at that, you learned something), which echoes the minimal feel of the circular shape and soft leather surfaces. Pair a couple up for a vanity or entry area, and try not to gravitate towards them every time you pass by. Designed by...Read more

Drink Rocks by Runa Klock

Drink Rocks by Runa Klock
Drink rocks aren't the most appealing idea, mostly because the two words don't sound like the best of friends. Who wants a rock in their drink? Not me...but, maybe we should be a little more open to the idea, especially because Runa Klock has made this set from soapstone and marble, and each rock has a very appealing geometric shape. Come to think of it, they're the sort of thing...Read more

Fine 500 Desk Lamp by FX Ballery

Fine 500 Desk Lamp by FX Ballery
How about an ultra thin LED lamp to light your workspace? The Fine 500 Desk Lamp by FX Balléry has a delicate outline yet it packs a punch when it comes to light output. You get 1200 lumen, which equals out to around 75W, with only 15W of energy consumed. Let's all approvingly nod our heads at that bullet point, and then admire that it has four preset light levels...Read more

Roger Stool by Sika-Design

Roger Stool by Sika-Design
This handmade stool is made from suar wood, which, if you're not familiar, is a fast growing (and non-endangered) tropical hardwood. It has an interlocking grain that reduces the likelihood of cracking with temperature changes, and that's very good news for those of us that hope our furniture lasts longer than our pithy life spans. And did you see the price? Very, very affordable which is oh-so-nice to see. Use...Read more

Wary Meyers Soap

Wary Meyers Soap
It's okay to be filthy when soap looks this good. Wary Meyers has all sorts of colorful stripes happening in their collection of glycerine soaps, and it's enough to tempt one away from a push pump and go completely with the old tried and true bar o' soap. Shall we purchase a few to show off in a soap dish for guests? Or will we be entirely selfish and enjoy...Read more

10 Years

10 Years
Ten years ago this month, in 2005, Kris pitched the idea of starting a design blog that only featured well-designed products available for purchase online. We had become pen pals (actual paper and pen), as we had discovered a shared interest in modern architecture and design at an art show in Dallas. We both had a hobby of sketching out floor plans for small, modern homes, and wanted to bounce...Read more
