Antipode Pendant Light

Antipode Pendant Light
Let's run through the very short list of requirements for a pendant light. Minimal/modern? Check. Spectacular/different? Check. Somewhat affordable? Check. The Antipode Pendant Light from Lambert & Fils fits those three requirements, and now we just need to figure out just where we're going to put it. Maybe the dining room, or entryway, or a large walk-in closet? Dimensions: 12.5-38.5" H, 5" W, 47" L Materials: Unfinished brass, UL listed...Read more

Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1

Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1
Whoa. The Artiphon Instrument 1 lets you play any instrument you want with a single device. Huh? You'd best watch their Kickstarter video, as that's the quickest way to understand the full scope of what the Artiphon offers. The digital interface works with any MIDI-compatible software and the ergonomic design allows you to hold it in various positions- guitar, violin, piano, bass, drum machine, etc. Designed and engineered in Nashville,...Read more

Moiré Side Tables

Moiré Side Tables
Before you hyperventilate over the price, do realize that these are two side tables, and not just one. Okay? Okay, let's proceed. This pair of Moiré Side Tables nest together to create an interesting interplay of line patterns. The molded wood bases in white and gold complement the striped walnut tops and together the set would easily provide a versatile option for a seating area. Expand or separate the tops...Read more

Mater Space Stool

Mater Space Stool
More lovely furniture on sale? Yes, please. With ever-so-thin legs, these handcrafted stools are sort of stunning. We first posted these stools back in 2010, and, of course, they need some updating in the pricing field. However, do keep in mind they're currently on sale, so you will save a tiny bit should you choose to splurge for your bar or countertop area. The Space Stools are crafted from premium...Read more

The Ledge

The Ledge
Sure, this looks like a wall shelf at first glance, but it hides a small work surface inside. Urbancase's The Ledge has a pullout shelf/work surface that's pretty perfect for a laptop, plus a cord management system and drawer, all within a relatively small footprint. Plus, the 'no legs' bit will keep a space from feeling too cramped. Aaaand, just to make your day a teensy bit better, it's currently...Read more

IC S Pendant Light

IC S Pendant Light
Seeing as the Flos sale began yesterday (ends March 19), it's particularly fitting to feature the IC S Pendant Light by Michael Anastassiades. The original inspiration for the IC collection was the skillful way in which a juggler spun a set of spheres around his/her body, and, indeed, it's easy to feel the off-centered balance and slight tension of each lamp. There's the suspension lamp, featured here, as well as...Read more

Switchmate

Switchmate
Now you can be really, truly lazy, because Switchmate automates your standard light switch, no screwdrivers required. Snap Switchman over your existing switch, pair it with your smartphone, and then turn your lights on and off without ever leaving the sofa. When you do eventually leave the house, you can turn on your lights before you arrive home, thus avoiding any dark entryways (and potential tripping hazards). It's held on...Read more

CH28 vs. Lars Lounge Chair

CH28 vs. Lars Lounge Chair
When Room&Board released their new Lars Lounge Chair, I thought that maybe I had seen it somewhere before. Of course, it borrows heavily from a handful of classic Mid-20th century designs, and, in this particular case, that's not necessarily a bad thing. There's lots of mid century lounge chairs that hit a pretty perfect note of top-notch design and comfort, and often you can find a pair for a decent...Read more

I Ricchi Poveri – Silver Bzzzz

I Ricchi Poveri – Silver Bzzzz
What's with Ingo Maurer and flying things? Who cares? Because pretty much all of it is amazing, and that includes this table lamp with a delicate handmade silver-coated aluminum dragonfly resting on a bulb. Prepare yourself for a price tag punch, though, as it's not cheap (you should know this as 'handmade' was in front of 'silver-coated' and 'aluminum dragonfly') and you might just have to put it in your...Read more

The Captain Chair
Here's something snazzy and new from Bend Goods. It's called The Captain Chair, and it's currently available in gold and white, though the product images show a bold red that's sure to follow.

SawHorse Table

SawHorse Table
This SawHorse Table has substantial legs that are sure to withstand many heavy dishes of lots of casual dinners. No need to worry about the tabletop surface either, as the table will age well thanks to its fitting materials. The ebonized oak base holds a blue ash top, and both are made to order by Matt Alexander of HollerDesign in his family's workshop/CowBlade Sawmill. "Boards for the table top are...Read more

1100 Carded Wool Blanket by Roberta Licini

1100 Carded Wool Blanket by Roberta Licini
It's still cold outside, so here's a very fashionable 100% carded wool blanket to keep you warm. Fair warning, though, it's not cheap, partly because it looks like it should be hanging on the wall as an abstract art piece instead of on your bed as a blanket. You could probably even get away with wearing it out in public as a sort of sweater coat/wrap (if you're brave), especially...Read more

Tre Side Table

Tre Side Table
Good news: this little table is only $199 AUD. Bad news: It's not available for international shipping. So, you'll just have to befriend someone in Australia and ask them to ship it to you, because how you could pass up such a deal on a small, sleek side table? Made from powder coated steel and oak timber. Designed in Japan. 47 cm high x 42 cm diameter...Read more

Ruuto Vases

Ruuto Vases
Delicate colors and various diamond-shaped sizes mean endless rearranging- in a fun sort of way. This sort of combination sets the Ruuto Vases firmly in the 'excellent gift' category. It takes seven craftsmen twenty four hours to create just one vase, as the colors require expert care and it takes time to create precise, square edges from lava-like liquid glass. Makes sense, doesn't it? Have a look at Iittalia's video...Read more
