Miyake Table Lamp

To change position of this lamp, you simply place the base on one of its 24 faces. I'd have to see this in person to really know how easy it would be to maneuver, but I do like the simplicity of base-stem-light with no extra joints or pivots. Also, is there something a little golf-like about the faceted white base and club-ish head? Design by Arihiro Miyake, 2009. 16.5"L X 23.6"H Cast ...Read more

Also available in coral/grey and yellow/grey. Designer: Scholten & Baijings Size: 14.25h ...Read more

Pendel vs. Suitor

And, now, we have a loveseat vs. loveseat scenario, with each 2-seater sofa having similar proportions and styling, especially in their higher backs and curved corners. The bases and fabric are completely different, of course, but please play along with me here in guessing which one costs $2,301 more, and do ignore the fabric when making your guess...

Brass Clip Number

The Midori collection over at baum-kuchen has me adding a few desk accessories to my shopping list, namely, these brass clip numbers.

Each clip measures 0.75" x 1.25" Updated price and link; originally ...Read more

Pots by Benjamin Huberts

You won't find these at your local kitchen supply store. These terracotta pots by Benjamin Hubert are glazed internally and have silicone lids for a tight seal, which make them perfect for storing dry goods- pasta, cereal, etc.- in the kitchen. No sacrificing design style here, as each piece could easily double as a vase (or group them together for a bigger centerpiece). Design: Benjamin Hubert Materials: Terracotta (pots), ...Read more

Stainless Steel Growler

You might like your draft beer, but do you like it enough to have your own growler? Maybe, probably, whatever your answer might be, the point is, if you're going to use a growler, this stainless steel one is much lighter than its glass relatives and will keep your beer colder, longer. A silicone sealed lid keeps contents fresh. Also, fyi, Popular Mechanics did a lab test to see how ...Read more

Clothing rail, Rectangular

So, who wants to spend $399 on a minimalist clothing rail and/or coat rack? I'll be the first to put my hand up, despite the slightly ridiculous price tag and the fact that it can't be shipped outside of Australia. Don't worry, I won't buy it, but let's just think of the many unappealing options (search for 'closet rail hardware' and you'll see exactly what I mean) and then let's ...Read more

In Between Chair

You might sense a resemblance to Hans Wegner's Wishbone Chair in the curved back rail of this chair, and you'd be spot on, as designer Sami Kallio has a high regard for the world renowned Danish designer. Kallio's chair occupies a certain 'in between' place in method of manufacturing as each one is hand and machine made. Ash and oak, the two options, both respond quite well to woodturning, more ...Read more
