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.

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

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

Tubelor Grande

Quick, what is it? Hint: it's very similar to another item from Ideaco with 'Tubelor' in its name, except this one is rectangular. Answer below. It's a trash can! You probably guessed that, but it's a better trash can than most in that it has a base trash can and an exterior cover that hides all the mess of the bag and contents. Winner of the red dot Design Award 2012. ...Read more

Industry Chair

Well, $199 for a minimal steel chair isn't so bad, especially when you consider the price of a visual equivalent like the Emeco 20-06 Stacking Chair. Now, this one isn't made from recycled aluminum, and it doesn't stack, and sure, that's a little disappointing, but you will have $376 left in your pocket, which means you can buy a second chair and some friends groceries. Sits indoors or out. overall: 19.5"Wx16"Dx31"...Read more
