Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
We can all agree that $400 is a lot of money to spend on a hair dryer. Not everyone is going to plonk down four big ones just for shinier, smoother hair that dries in half the time. Actually, if you have short hair, there's really no reason to read any further. However, if you've got longer hair, well, here's a personal review. When you add up the time it...Read more

Split Step Stool

Split Step Stool
If you're going to have a step stool, you might as well make it this one. Why? Well, it's made of molded steel- that's what gives the split-legged design its sleekness and strength- and it's very minimalist. So minimalist, in fact, you could even leave it out all the time as a resting spot for books or a special plant. You'd not say the same for any other step stool...Read more

Muuto’s Grain Pendant

Muuto’s Grain Pendant
At first glance, you'll most likely wish Muuto's Grain Pendant was a bit bigger than ~8" in diameter. However, once you see a few lined up over a kitchen island or a large grouping over a table, you'll be glad that it's not too large, as the size is perfect for multiples. Get up close and personal, and you'll see the shade is made from a mix of bamboo fibers...Read more
