Beach Canvas Tote

Beach Canvas Tote
Which way to the beach? Everyone will follow you if you're carrying this tote, because it's the ideal size for your towel, sunscreen, snacks, and paperback. Or, of course, you could use it as an everyday tote, as it would look perfectly appropriate for your weekly shopping as well. A waxed coating keeps the bottom protected; choose between Natural or Dark Navy. 18.5" W (when base is flat) × 14.5"...Read more

Neo Geo Bookend Set

Neo Geo Bookend Set
Your books would appreciate some support; they're sick of falling over and feeling neglected. So, do them a favor and get them some very cool acrylic bookends (they have a magical unicorn sort of vibe about them, no?). The blue/violet tones will catch the light and create a fun punch of color that's sure to add a little artistic interest to any room. Dimensions: 4" W, 8" D, 8" H...Read more

Wicker Lunch Box

Wicker Lunch Box
Okay, so maybe this isn't the highest quality lunch box/bag you'll find (look at the price), but you might as well trick your eyes into thinking you're on a picnic, because then you'll enjoy that sandwich just a tiny bit more. Of course, do be sure to note that this is a wicker printed soft lunch box, and not actually a wicker lunch box. There's also a Wicker Wine Cooler...Read more

The Frame TV

The Frame TV
Who loves that the TV is being reconsidered as art? I sure do. There's the Serif TV, an excellent option by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, and now there's this one, The Frame. It transforms into a piece of art when you're not watching a show or movie, making it blend into your home's decor. A TV that doesn't look like a TV? Sign me up. How 'real' does it look?...Read more

Portside Lounger

Portside Lounger
Is it just me, or does this seem like one heck of a deal? Finding outdoor loungers that are comfortable on the backside and easy on the eyes can be a daunting task for someone that appreciates a pared-down approach, so seeing a less-than-$400 option is a nice surprise. This lounger is made from sustainably sourced wood and features Textilene® fabric for extra breathability. Plus, it's on sale, which makes...Read more

Lands Rug

Lands Rug
Do you see the aerial landscape inspiration in this rug from Grain? There's a little hint of crop circles, of course, but the overall shape is what sets this rug apart from its very rectangular siblings in the retail world. And, if you'd prefer a less neutral colorway, the braided wool rug may be ordered in custom sizes, colors, and materials. Handmade in New England by a mill with 30...Read more

MagLock Sunglasses

MagLock Sunglasses
Oh, this is such a smart idea, and I hope it starts a trend. The MagLock Sunglasses have magnets embedded into their frame so that they 'clip' onto your shirt instead of falling off. No more worrying about losing your shades! No more scratched lenses! Wonderful, right? The magnets also mean you can attach the frames to any magnetic surface (even a thumbtack). Here's hoping they expand the frame selection...Read more

Panobook Notebook

Panobook Notebook
Picky about notebooks? Me too, and I just bought/backed the Panobook, a notebook intended for your desk. What's so special about it? Well, it has a panoramic format (160 mm x 288 mm) that fits nicely in front of or next to your keyboard. A subtle dot grid lets you draw layouts easily (most prominently, three 16:9 boxes or quadrants) and a slip case is included for storage. Nice! Each...Read more

Collet Corkscrew

Collet Corkscrew
Yes, this does look like a tool for a spaceship, but it's even better (because you don't have a spaceship). It's a bottle opener that conceals a corkscrew. That's right, two tools in one, shiny, solid bar of brass that'll look just fine left out on the counter or tabletop, if you so desire. It may be a good gift for someone special, so bookmark it for the future. Dimensions:...Read more
