Cayo Beach Towel

Cayo Beach Towel
Geez, another modern beach towel? We're up to our eyeballs here with all the choices, and this one is very tempting price-wise. I guess it doesn't hurt to have a stack of them ready to go whenever the mood strikes- it is summer, after all. Take note of this tidbit so you can sound smart when you get compliments: this towel is designed by Dee Clements- she was inspired by...Read more

Multi Basket

Multi 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

Whoa, look at this new barstool. It's stackable, made from powder-coated steel sled legs and a molded plywood seat. Not impressed? Oh, and it's under $200.

Fundamental Lamp

Fundamental Lamp
Stripes! It evokes a certain Memphis Group flavor, don't you think? And, yes, you could probably make something similar if you had the tools (so, go ahead, make one). If you know you're too lazy, then this little lamp by Brendan Timmins will set you back $160. A small price to pay for a cheery, striped light with a pink cord, don't you think? More designs and colors are on...Read more

Pon+ Pin

Pon+ Pin
Do you remember the harmless Pon Push Pin? The same folks have a new version (aptly named Pon+) that's a bit bigger and has a smart pull tab. Pull the tab and slide your pictures/artwork underneath for easy display and no puncture wounds. The bigger size means it can hold larger loads as well. Each Pon+ 18mm in diameter / 56mm circumference....Read more

Arch Floor Mirror

Arch Floor Mirror
"What's through there?" That's what your friends will be saying until they smack their foreheads against this mirror (they're not too bright, those friends of yours, poor things). Just think, your place will look like it gained another room at first glance, thanks to the elegant optical illusion of the arched design. Look closely and you'll see several varying tints create a shaded effect; a small detail, yes, but quite...Read more

Mirtoon Automatic Hose Reel

Mirtoon Automatic Hose Reel
Have you seen any decent garden hose storage options? If you have, please don't keep it to yourself. If you haven't, I may need to bite the bullet and buy the Mirtoon Automatic Hose Reel, as it doesn't offend my very finicky design sensibilities. It's wall mounted, can pivot 180 degrees, and automatically stops and retracts with a little tug. The spray gun has 5 settings and an adjustable nozzle....Read more

Koki Ice Cream Scoop

Koki Ice Cream Scoop
I scream, you scream, we all scream for... you know the rest.

The Koki's handle is comfortable to hold and has a length suitable for all types of containers. It's perfect for soft and creamy ice creams (homemade is...Read more

Blanc 44110 Notebook by Metaphys

The Blanc Notebook's pages are rounded to avoid snagging and bent corners while the semi-rigid cover protects the high-quality Japanese paper. Pages take ink beautifully and tear out easily.

Sass Pedestals

Sass Pedestals
Why, yes, these pedestals are Sottsass-inspired, as you can tell by their circular, contrasting layers. Aren't they just the thing to elevate certain things around your home? Perhaps you'll place your hors d'oeuvres, your prized possessions, or, as suggested, your potted plants upon them, so that those items might shine slightly brighter for being seen. Designed by MPGMB.

Dotty Clock

Dotty Clock
Keep time with the Dotty Clock, designed by Abi Alice. You can probably see where sticky dots had something to do with the design, as the ends of the hands are clear to spot from across the room. If you're a fan of Charles and Ray Eames, you may even see a little Dot Pattern fabric flavor when the hands cross just so... or even planetary orbit paths... or is...Read more

Clemens Auer Tweezers

Clemens Auer Tweezers
Ordinary tweezers aren't for you, or maybe they are until you see these odd tweezers by Clemens Auer. The circular solution was inspired by the pinching gesture, and is a unique alternative to those other typical grooming instruments. And, apparently, they are "functionally superior." I believe it. Winner of a 2015 Wallpaper Design Award, and a 2016 German Design Award. Hand-crafted from a single strip of steel by a metalsmith...Read more

Palissade Collection by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec
All right, now, we're in outdoor furniture shopping mode, thanks to the summer heat. If the Hot Mesh Lounge featured yesterday didn't quite hit the spot, maybe you'll like the Palissade Lounge Chair by Ronan + Erwan Bouroullec. Why? It'd be easier to ask why not, because then we could agree on your ignorance or lack of design sense* and then our conversation would be over. The 'why' question requires...Read more
