How about a little mirror rivalry? To be more specific, buckled leather mirror rivalry.

Now, the mirror on the left is two inches shy of the Adnet's 18 inch diameter, but it costs considerably less. Any guesses as to the price difference? Gubi's Adnet Mirror, currently ...Read more

At first glance, this Grain Pendant looks like it has a simple aluminum shade. However, take a closer look and you'll see that the shade is formed over a wooden mold that has been sandblasted, and, during the shade's metal spinning process, the patterns of the wood grain are impressed on the shade's underside.
