Orion, Pegasus, Cygnus Quilts by Mary Keasler

What just happened? How in the world did these constellation quilts by Mary Keasler skip the collective radar until now? One side is white, featuring the well-known constellation, and the reverse side is solid navy. As there is no true top or bottom, you may rotate the quilts as you wish for a new perspective of the night sky's brighter characters. 58" x 58" Made by Mary Keasler.

Roll With It

We could do a guessing game as to what this item might be, but let's just get to the point and discuss one of the necessary things involved in personal hygiene: toilet paper. Where is it stored? How is it kept near the toilet/loo without being a complete eyesore? If you're lucky, you found some bathroom accessories that are affordable and easy to look at, but if you're like ...Read more

Artist Deck Chairs

Fundamental Party Collection

Hats off to you, Meri Meri, for providing a science-themed party kit for all of those parents beleaguered by the not-so-great current offerings at the local big box store. However, why is the Fundamental Party Collection only in the boys' section? Grumble, grumble. It could be under the 'general' category, or a gender neutral section, couldn't it?

Capitol Pendant Lamp

Whoa. This lamp commands attention with its size: at 26" diameter and a 22" height it won't fade into any room's background. A matte carbon aluminum shade has a white interior to maximize the light, and that neutral combination goes anywhere, with any color scheme. Best of all, the price sneaks under the $300 mark, so you can afford to have a hefty statement lamp (or two) above your dining table without a ...Read more

Digital Sunrise Blanket

More pixilated textiles, though this time it's turned all the way up to an almost obnoxious color play of red, yellow, blue, green and black. Spanish artist and designer Cristian Zuzunaga is the man behind this silk and superfine merino wool blanket, and, if you're a fan of vivid colors and strong patterns, you'll want to take a look at the other items in his Bitmap collection, for there's a ...Read more

Weight Vases

Yes, here's another vase, but considering the holiday that takes place this Sunday, I figure there is going to be a plethora of flowers around, and you'll have ample opportunity to assess whether or not the receptacle in which they are placed is aesthetically acceptable. If it isn't, you're in the market for a better vase. Now, there's no question in my mind that these Weight Vases by Decha Archjananum ...Read more

Hide Pendant Lights

If you're vegan, just skip reading this post or spending too long looking at these pendant lights. For the rest of us, you might notice that these lamps are made of laser cut leather (locally sourced, mind you), hand molded and hand dyed to the correct color. As with other fine leather goods, they're not inexpensive, yet for certain rooms or environments, they just might be worth the price. Designed ...Read more

601Street 4×4 Envelope Notebook

Don't underestimate the effect a handwritten thank you note can have, especially as they're rare to give and receive nowadays. As someone who still occasionally writes notes to friends and family, folding a paper into an envelope seems like an efficient method of traditional correspondence, and that's exactly why this envelope notebook caught my eye. 16 sheets in total with four possible envelope folds. There's also a 6x4 Envelope Notebook, $13.95 (24 sheets ...Read more
