Pinorama Board

Pinorama Board
All those little pieces of paper and bits and bobs scattered about, just where are you going to put them? Maybe on a perforated metal sheet, with a partial cork backing like this Pinorama Board by Inga Sempe for HAY? I'd say it's as good as any other place, especially as it has a range of accessories (shelves, mirrors, cylinders, an elastic net(!), and hooks) to customize it just the...Read more

Water Clock

Water Clock
Whether you love or hate this clock, we can all agree it adds a different element to tell the time. Magnets are employed to let the two balls float on the water's surface, giving a magical sense of movement. The red ball shows the hours, the white one the minutes. Add an extra receptacle on top of the ceramic base for a more vertical display. Designer: Kouichi Okamoto / KYOUEI...Read more

Future Glass Set

Future Glass Set
The colors of the Future Glass Set remind one of the Spectra Vases, and, lo and behold, they're from the very same glassworks Holmegaard. Peter Svarrer designed the Future Glass set in 2000, and more than a decade later they look just as lovely on the table... or in a gift box perhaps? Choose between Rose + Yellow, Blue + Green, or Lavender + Aquamarine. Material: Mouth blown glass Volume:...Read more

Triangle Dinner Bell

Triangle Dinner Bell
There's a certain nostalgia connected to a Triangle Dinner Bell like this one from Pat Kim- perhaps period films have us immediately imagining dinner time at an old farm? Whether your estate is vast or your apartment small, ringing a triangle will signify it's time to sit down and eat, hopefully without our devices. The English Bridle Leather hanger conveniently holds the solid brass striker, making this hand bent steel...Read more

Do you need that bottle opened? Let me just grab this icosahedron from the table here so I can open it for you. That's exactly what you'll be saying if you choose to add this opener to your current display of interesting objects scattered about your home or office.

Fredericks & Mae Star Dominos

Fredericks & Mae Star Dominos
$38 is much better than $80, which is what these dominos used to cost. I think that means that they're entirely affordable, and very worth snapping up before another price change. Fun fact: the name 'domino' is from the pieces' resemblance to Venetian Carnival masks known as Domini, which were white with black spots. There's also plenty of other games from Fredericks & Mae, ranging from $12.95 (playing cards) to...Read more

Plumen 003 LED Light Bulb

Plumen 003 LED Light Bulb
A sexy lightbulb? Really? Well that's an adjective everyone else is using, so, sure, it's, uh, sexy. Let me introduce you to the Plumen 003. It is energy-efficient (it's an LED) and gives off a focused, direct light directly below along with a softer sidelight. Similar to candlelight, it has a warm glow thanks to its center gold element. Unlike candlelight, it will last 10,000 hours. That means it will...Read more

HMM TapeDispenser

HMM TapeDispenser
Shall we talk tape dispensers? They're somewhat necessary in our homes and office environments, yet most are clunky and boring. Not the HMM TapeDispenser, though, as it has a magnetic core holder which holds the tape gracefully in one-third of a traditional dispenser's size. A weighted base allows for one hand to pull and tear the tape, so your other hand can juggle, sip coffee or give someone the bird....Read more

Architectural Planter

Architectural Planter
Your favorite little plant might need a new home in this Architectural Planter. It's small, so it'll fit on your desktop (or windowsill?) and has three vertical slabs as its base. Plus, it comes with a drainage tray to catch any overwatering (so you daydream sometimes, no big deal). Let's hope for a larger version, or a family of sizes to propagate all sorts of succulents. Designed in Brooklyn. Made...Read more

ZZ CenterPiece

ZZ CenterPiece
Please tell me you need a strange sort of tray for your next dinner party, because I've got just the thing: the ZZ CenterPiece. Isn't it lovely in its asymmetrical-yet-functional design? Is the ebonized Walnut not beautiful with its zig zag topical pattern? It's interesting enough to leave out all the time- maybe you could even put it in your entryway to catch keys and correspondence? American Black Walnut, mineral...Read more
