String Lights

Don't ask yourself 'why do I need these string lights?' Instead, ask yourself 'why don't I need these string lights?' After all, you work very hard, don't you? And, as we all know it does get quite dark at night, and what better way to illuminate a special spot indoors than with a set of string lights with natural brass sockets and black cloth twisted cord? Wonderful evenings ...Read more

The legs are detachable should you wish to store them over the winter season, and there's an accompanying La Table, square and La Table, rectangular, also ...Read more

Cascade Outdoor Shower

Last week I saw a picture of this outdoor shower and immediately thought 'how-much-from-where' because it'd be perfect for the lake house getaway that we are currently planning (we have land but no house yet).

Price: 595 € overseas transport door-to-door: 160 € total: 755 € , delivered in +/_ 10 days. ...Read more

Lékué Ice Box

Unless you're very strange or live in the UK, chances are you'll be using ice to cool down your beverages this summer. This Ice Box by Lékué will certainly come in handy, as the silicone ice cube tray doubles as the lid, which allows you to make and store up to 132 ice cubes. (Fun fact: that pattern you see in the tray is a Voronoi diagram, fyi.) Manufacturer: Lé...Read more

Mira Mirror

Usually any wood-frame mirror with a leather hanging strap commands a higher price than $300, so that's why you're seeing the Mira Mirror (Mira Mirra, one is tempted to pronounce) right now.

There's also a rectangular version, Mira-D, for $250. -FSC-certified solid American black walnut frame -Belt leather hanger W19.8 D19.8 ...Read more

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.

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

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
