Plush Bed

It's not my job to save you money (or is it?), but if you're looking for a decently priced (and minimal/modern) bed, you might just want to take a gander at the Plush. You can save a couple of hundred dollars- until June 9- on either the grey or natural color options, leaving you a little extra money to splurge on, say, perhaps some new summer bed linens? reg. $899.00 ...Read more

Timbre Amplifier

Chances are you'd prefer no additional cords or wires on your desk, and hey, wouldn't it be nice to have a small, passive amplifier for your iPhone? I know you were just thinking that exact same thought, and that's why you'd do well to pay attention to this little guy. The Timbre is a wooden amplifier that boosts the sound of your phone by up to 20 decibels. No cords, no ...Read more

The Reverse-Denim Weekender

I don't need any more weekend bags, but man, am I tempted by this one from Everlane. At $95, it's just enough of an 'affordable' choice that it has me thinking my luggage needs an overhaul, and the reverse denim version with leather details is mighty easy on the eyes. And, if you don't want to wait the week and half until this one ships, check out the other color options ...Read more

Side Box

It's a box. It doesn't have a charging station, it won't organize your emails, it's just a side table with storage to display books and such. It will last though, thanks to solid wood construction with those oh-so-smart dovetail joints, and ease into any design scheme you have for your home, because, after all, it's a box, and that's as simple as you can get when it comes to side ...Read more

Braided Stools

Furniture is rarely 'fun' with a capital F, but there's not many words more appropriate to describe these Braided Stools by Debra Folz. Each stool is CNC cut to accommodate traditional leather weaving techniques, and the result is a fresh take on textural adornment. Choose between 6 available leather colors (may be combined in the case of the bi-color bench as shown above) and three different woods. Bench and stools are ...Read more

Infinite Resonance Notebooks

Another item in MoMA Store's Destination NYC collection is this notebook by Brooklyn-based designer Bari Schlosser. The pattern is "inspired by a deep hypnotic state"- that sounds interesting, doesn't it? And who doesn't appreciate lovely patterns hand silk-screen printed on sustainable resources anyhow? Designer: Bari Schlosser, 2012 Dimensions: 8"l x 5"w Materials: Sustainable Resources Made in the USA. Available in Turquoise, White, or Navy....Read more

Beautiful Insights Storage Boxes

This goes to prove that a storage box can be an objet d'art, as I want a few of these just to look at and admire, forget about their function. Place one on its own in the room of your choice for specific storage needs, or stack several for a 'miniature-home' look. Be sure to take a look at the whole collection, as there are quite a few gems (besides ...Read more

Cast 1 Light Pendant Light

Another folded paper lamp, yawn... but wait, it's not paper, it's ceramic! Which means it'll break if you drop it, so don't. The patterned surface will lend just enough texture to a room and you'll get the nice, even glow you'd expect from a ceramic shade. And, the size is just right for a small breakfast nook, or maybe even beside the bed suspended above the nightstand. Made in the ...Read more

Page Markers by The Food Guide

That's when you'll remember these wooden tabs. 8 page markers in each pack, available in a Salt Stripes or Color. There's also wooden stickers (for ...Read more

TRAE Fire Pit

Hmm, what's the price of this very affordable fire pit? $300?! Compared to the Loll Fire Ring or, my personal favorite, the Geometric Firepit, that's a sight for a sore wallet. It has somewhat petite dimensions, but the space below keeps extra logs handy and dry- two important bonus points when it's chilly out and you want to stay close to the nice, warm fire. Made of 1/8” steel, TRAE comes in ...Read more
