Heartwarmer Cushion

In a reluctant nod to the holiday that is Valentine's Day, I present you with the Heartwarmer Cushion. It may be placed in the microwave or freezer to warm or cool whatever region that may need it. (Considering the very cold February we've been having, the warmth of a heart-shaped cushion on toes and fingers would be especially nice, wouldn't it?) Size: 10 in. x 10 in.

One, Two vs. Adnet Mirror

How about a little mirror rivalry? To be more specific, buckled leather mirror rivalry. Gubi's Adnet Mirror, above, on the right, has long been admired, but unfortunately its $700-$800 price tag is a bit too high for everyone's wallet. 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

Grain Pendant

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.
