Dots & Spots Pillows

For goodness sake, don't get so serious with your interior accessories that you turn your nose up at polka dots. It is summer, after all, and a little bit of friendly-bright color might just do you some good. Plus, these polka dot pillows are from the lovely duo Daniel Emma, of whom we are all fans. (Trust me on this.) Made from digitally printed linen/cotton mix. Made in United ...Read more

Tiny Letterpress Cards

You never know when you might need a small card to say the word(s) you'd rather not say in person, or (even worse) in an email. Cards are an endearing traditional aspect of communication, and make an occasion out of a few simple words. Any of these three cards will no doubt leave the recipient in a much better mood than before they picked up the envelope. Cards: Truce. ...Read more

Lollygagger Lounge

Yep, we've posted the 4 slat Adirondack by Loll before, but this one is new, and has less 'slat' and more of a clean, modern look. As is with most of Loll's lounge chairs, this one is made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE = milk jugs), and is 100% recycled and recyclable. That means no maintenance needed- ever- and no storing/packing up when the seasons change. And, as an extra bonus, an integrated ...Read more

Cloud Doormat

Update: Remember this guy? It was no longer available from the original shop we linked to, but Sprout Home has it. (Hooray!) Simple doormats do the job, but a doormat in the shape a cloud might just be a tiny bit better. It's like watching kittens playing- really not necessary but somehow worthwhile. Anyone who's ever visited YouTube knows as much. And, yes, that was a link to a kitten ...Read more

Distil Union’s Wally

Among the many varieties of wallet/iPhone cases is Distil Union's Wally. It's an attachable leather pocket that keeps your credit cards close at hand, with a pull-tab that conceals/reveals contents. It won't hold all your George Costanza-like receipts and such, as there's just room for around 3 cards, so maybe it will force you to only keep what's necessary. The Wally attaches directly to the iPhone (and most cases) ...Read more

My New Flame

An LED 'candle' that never burns down sounds pretty fantastic, even if the price point is way beyond what most of us would want to spend. A black or red circuit board has 128 tiny LEDs on each side that renders the image of a flickering candle flame. A warm color temperature makes the flame look quite realistic despite the obvious circuitry, thus creating a nice tension between traditional lighting and ...Read more

NoMess Balsabox Collection

Multi Basket Picnic Basket

Is it time for a picnic? I think so, especially if you had this basket from Danish brand Menu. It's a sort of hybrid between a basket and tray, with two air-tight containers with bamboo lids, two cooling pads, and a felt liner. Stick the cooling pads in the freezer before you head out to keep your food cool. It's like a bento-box-basket, isn't it? You could, of course, also ...Read more

Bare Ring Sconce

I doubt you'll find a more exposed or minimal wall light than this Bare Ring Sconce from Brendan Ravenhill and Eric Trine. It suspends the Bare Light in a simple brass ring, with a glass socket to reveal the light’s electrical components. Honesty is definitely the best policy when it comes to this fixture. Available in a hard-wire version with powder coated steel wall plate or a a plug-in ...Read more

Lako Book Holder

If you maintain the belief that physical books shall always hold a place in your heart, and thus in your living room, you'll need a proper place to keep your current stack of reading. And, should you have the room, why not go with a sculptural sort of holder, because, after all, "the pure structure of straight lines and angles allows for various possibilities of storing publications." The handle at ...Read more

Small Zebrawood Speaker

It might be difficult to discern the tiny Zebrawood speaker amongst the pencils and parquet boxes in the image above, but it's there, and it's tiny- three inches by three inches, to be exact. And why do you need a tiny, Zebrawood speaker? Who knows, but my best guess is that you're looking for bluetooth compatible, wireless speaker that has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, and if it happens to blend ...Read more

Bank Sofa

Well, what do we have here? I'd say one heck of a well proportioned, piped-cushion sofa. Go ahead and insert a wolf-whistle to fully pick up the appreciation that I'm putting down for this Bank Sofa by Blu Dot. Grey is usually the color choice I'd recommend for longevity, but this lava-lipstick red sure is a show stopper. Choose between super skinny blackened metal or brass legs.

M3 seat/storage

Seating with integrated storage is a big bonus for any room short on space, and add the color lime to the mix and you've got a winner. This M3 storage box will hide away all manner of odds and ends and will double as an extra seat when needed. Could be a good fit for a kids room or a casual living area perhaps?
