This Stool Rocks

Would you like to back another Kickstarter campaign? How about a ready-to-assemble rocking stool? Three options allow for three different rocking motions, and, best of all, the stools can be made in a city close to you and shipped with minimal charge- instead of overseas. And, if you want to make the stool yourself (and have access to a CNC machine), you can download the CAD file for free. Designed ...Read more

LifeStraw Portable Water Filter

If you spend any time in the wilderness, you'd do well to add one of these to your emergency kit. It's a water purifying straw that removes "99.9999% of waterborne bacteria and 99.9% of parasites without any use of chemicals." That'll be a lifesaver if you're ever lost or- doomsday scenario- if some disaster strikes and makes the regular water supply unsafe to drink. Better to be prepared, right?

LSTN Headphones

If guitars, drums, violins, and many other instruments are made of wood, why aren't most headphones? Wood offers more resonance than plastic or metal, so it makes sense to incorporate them into a listening device so near and dear to our ears. And, with every pair you purchase, LSTN sends the proceeds to charity partners for the deaf, so that one child gets medical attention and a custom fit hearing ...Read more

Cielo Pendant Light

Flat-panel LED technology makes quite the difference, as seen in the specs of this Cielo Pendant Light. It lasts for 50 thousand hours or 25 years of daily use. Pretty different from those regular bulbs we all had (and may still have) in our homes. LED technology has allowed this efficiency, and in the case of this lamp, it used only 8 watts of power. Contrast that with a regular 60 watt bulb and ...Read more

Simple Shelf

Sure, a simple shelf sounds okay, but then you see the frame sort of floats away from the wall, and that means extra dimension. Not an extra dimension (don't get too excited), just extra dimension, as in, a pinch of optical illusion when you walk by. The robots and bus make it look perfect for a kid's room, but the collectors among us know an extra shelf or two means ...Read more

Bdoja Chair

Hmm, what's this? A big ball of yarn? Not quite, though on first glance the assumption is understandable. It's a chair hand-knitted with cotton cord by a group of women of Mexican-descent in Los Angeles, California. Amaya Gutierrez, the designer, works with this team to produce textiles inspired from her home town in Oaxaca, Mexico. Gutierrez aims for style and durability in all of her products with hopes it will ...Read more

2213 House Numbers

How about some new numbers to update your home's facade? You just can't go wrong with these very cool numbers from 2213. They're made of steel and powder coated, so they may even last longer than your house. And, don't tell anyone else, but I think these might just be slightly better than the styling of the Neutra Numbers. (sacrilege!) "Made of durable steel, the raw forms for 2213 house numbers are ...Read more

Seattle Indoor-Outdoor Rug

What's better than a black and white patterned rug? A reversible, indoor-outdoor black and white patterned rug, of course. Recycled polypropylene won't be the softest on the soles of your feet, but the trade off is that you simply hose it down to clean. That means toting it out to the patio, park or beach is perfectly acceptable, if not encouraged. -100% recycled polypropylene -Reversible -For indoor and outdoor use ...Read more

Mast Humidifier

If you hadn't seen the title, would you have known what this was? This guy is probably one of the more elegant humidifiers out there, as it allows water to diffuse into the air through its thinly sliced hinoki (Japanese cypress) 'mast', thus accelerating moisture diffusion tenfold. Of course, if you need a beefier, electronic humidifier, do consider the Drop ($49), the Anton Ultrasonic Humidifier ($139), or the Takumi Chimney ($200). Natural humidifier ...Read more
