Carafe Pinson

This carafe by designer Céline Frébault (in collaboration with the Sentou gallery) incorporates a rather odd beaker-like handle, which fills when the carafe is full. As far as carafes go, it's definitely got a high end (semi-mad-scientist?) look... any guesses as to the price? Is it $50, $100, $200? If you guessed around the $100 mark, you are correct. It comes with a $115 price tag. 10" high. "I endeavour to keep only what ...Read more

Losanges Rug

Pair Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec with the Nani Marquina rug team and what's the result? Awesomeness, of course. The Losanges is a reinterpretation of the traditional Persian rug using the kilim technique. Kilim rugs are pretty flat, as you might know, because the strands are tightly interwoven and there's no pile (cushiness). In this kilim rug, 13 colors are combined through a geometrical rhombus shape, all handwoven by Northern Pakistan craftsmen. ...Read more

Swell Sofa

This Swell Sofa has some serious curves that catch the eye.

Capello Lamp

Let's just get this straight: this lamp is $160. Compared to the Love Letter Light (also by molo), which ran around the $400 mark, that's a bargain. Now, consider its marble base, which is actually a byproduct from the base for the Arco floor lamp designed by the Castiglioni brothers. Next, the little paper cap (“cappello” in Italian) is attached to the steel wire with a simple magnetic connection, which allows you ...Read more

Isoline Travel Set

If you have half a grand to spare, then you'll probably want to spend it on a travel pillow and blanket, because, hey, why not? In reality, if you are actually in the market for a travel set, you'll definitely be able to find several that are in the two digit price range, but I'd wager you'll not find many that have such a pleasing geometric pattern.
