Patinated Brass Vanity Box

Patinated Brass Vanity Box
At first glance, you might think this is a very, very nice cooking pot, but, no, it's a vanity/jewelry box.

Mini Container

Mini Container
What would you store in a Mini Container? That's entirely your business, and we'd probably prefer not to know, thank you very much.

Palo Corner Sofa Right Blue

Palo Corner Sofa Right Blue
Hmm, here's something new on the radar. Not only does this sectional sofa possess the clean lines and modern form that we're all after, it also can be rearranged as you see fit. Cushions and armrests may be moved (with the struts) to create different combinations. So, maybe you'll get the Palo Corner Sofa Right in Blue (shown above), or maybe you prefer the smaller Two Seater in Grey (below)...Read more

Tool The Bookworm

Tool The Bookworm
I know, you rarely have time for books, and even then it's safe to say you're likely to pick up a Kindle or iPad instead of a paperback or hardcover. However, on that rare occasion you do read a book, it'd be nice to have a bookmark made of a digitally etched sheet of golden brass, wouldn't it? Tom Dixon brings us Tool the Bookworm, a collection of metal bookmarks...Read more

Stone Shelf

Stone Shelf
If you don't need a small-ish shelf, then good for you. For the rest of us, we could probably use a small perch to set our phone and/or keys when we walk in the door, or as a diminutive ledge for the bathroom or bedside for our watches and jewelry. This one from Fort Standard is made of marble, which adds an extra ounce (or ounces, as the case may...Read more

Constellation Tea Towels

Constellation Tea Towels
Tea towels are so much better than paper towels, at least for the simple spills in the kitchen. It's a smart way to save a little money over time and reduce waste, and they're also much nicer to see and use, as shown by the Constellation Tea Towels made Holly Muller in Portland, Oregon. Constellations + tea towels = yes. (And 40% off today only from the retailer!) 100% cotton...Read more
