Verge Desk

At first glance, this desk reminded me of the Stash Desk by Blu Dot, but after taking a second look, it's really not a fair comparison due to the dimensions. Sure, the Stash desk is a winner for its price and simplicity, but this desk is super sleek and has an additional 20" in length for desktop space. Just take a look at it in another color and you'll understand the ...Read more

Troika Trivet

There has been a few interesting trivets lately, which is weird considering that trivets aren't usually paired with that particular adjective, or even talked about outside of specialized kitchen shops.

Edge Stackable Chair

One glance at all the surface planes on this aluminum chair and it's easy to see how it was inspired by the art of origami. Sure, it doesn't fold (like some other aluminum chairs) but considering the nice profile we'll settle for the stackable option. Each chair takes around eight hours to manufacture- that helps explain the price tag- and can be used indoors or out. An optional seat pad ...Read more

Circle Rug

Where can you get a 6' circle rug for less than $200? Lots of places, it turns out, with a little bit of internet sleuthing. However, sometimes the materials and/or designs are a bit iffy and you've no idea if it will look cheap in person. There's no guesswork involved with a braided 100% cotton rug, however. This braided grey rug with its eco-friendly dye and white zigzag stitching makes a ...Read more

Wet Wipes Case

What is meant to be kept in these nicely shaped canisters? Might as well cut to the chase: wet wipes. If wet wipes are in any way integral to your day (pets, kids, or maybe you're just a messy eater), you know the packaging isn't going to win any awards. Instead of lamenting how graphic/packaging design caters to the masses, pop those suckers into one of these ceramic canisters ...Read more

Perhaps you find yourself fiddling with tape too often- without a proper dispenser, it can be a little silly to search for the end time after time.

Yes, at first glance this looks like a netted vest, so, big deal, right? But take a hint from its name and know that it lights up as a visible safety vest. Developed from 3M reflective material, the vest is designed to wear over your clothing/jacket/coat, and is quite strong, lightweight and compact. There's also the fluorescent Flare Vest if you prefer bright color over lighting technology. -hand-netted, ...Read more

BL9M Pendant

A bit of brass won't hurt you if you put it in the right place, namely, above your head in the shape of a light fixture. Bestlite lamps have a history; did you know that Robert Dudley Best's lamp was the first example of Bauhaus in the UK, and required quite a bit of argument to put it into production?

Fusillo Shelf

Don't go thinking this is a static shelf- it's made of modules that rotate around a central axis so that it can change according to your needs. Each module has a sharp curve at its inner end, so that when it's flipped up/down, it acts as hook, and the top of the module could serve as a bookend, as shown in the photos below. One in a smaller entryway ...Read more
