Half Cube Vinyl Rack

Is this a decent stand for your vinyls or what? It's not the fanciest, but it sure does look cool, and at $170 it's not too bad of a price for keeping your favorites close by. I know, I know, you're hesitant to purchase from the retailer as you're not a tween, but you've got to keep your records organized somehow, and like I said, it's a decent stand. You could ...Read more

Cymbal Pendant

Well, what do we have here? It's a very simple pendant that uses the light bulb as support for the shades. Aluminum disks diffract the light and trick your eye with reflections of its environment. Does it remind you a little of the Grain Pendant by Brendan Ravenhill? It's the same sort of idea, and a little more affordable at that. Manufacturer: La Chance Dimensions: Diam. 18" x H 6" Cymbal Pendant, Chrome, $243.00 ...Read more

Litho Hammocks

American flags and hammocks go together like peanut butter and jelly as far as I'm concerned. So, when an American flag hammock has an easy-to-setup strap system that allows for hanging in less than 30 seconds, I'm going to sit up and pay attention. Litho Hammocks utilize Cam Buckles and two 11 ft. straps to make installation a breeze. The extra long straps allow you to put the hammock almost anywhere. No ...Read more

What is it?

Okay, time to play the game again, what the heck is this thing? I'll give you the dimensions: 9.75"h x 10.25"w x 8.5"d. Any ideas? My first thoughts: it must be an extremely large nose clip (for a giant, of course) or some kind of a boat anchor. Nope and nope. It's a bicycle stand! Specifically, the Buntin Bicycle Stand. Weighing around 12 pounds, it'll keep your bike standing upright by ...Read more

El Prado Rug from grain

Is anyone else in the mood for some crazy rugs? Maybe it's the summer heat, but there's something about this optical grid patterned rug from grain that looks just right.
