Champagne Sabre

We could play the 'what is it' game, but let's just skip straight to the item at hand. It's a Champagne Sabre, a blade intended to separate the collar and cork from the champagne bottle at its weakest spot above the neck. Now, you'll notice I mentioned it's a blade, albeit a curved, blunt blade; does this strike a little fear into anyone else? I'm sure it's dramatic to slice ...Read more

The Ledge

Sure, this looks like a wall shelf at first glance, but it hides a small work surface inside. Urbancase's The Ledge has a pullout shelf/work surface that's pretty perfect for a laptop, plus a cord management system and drawer, all within a relatively small footprint.

Squeeze In Orange Squeezer

We could play the whole 'what-is-it' game, but you probably possess enough deductive reasoning to guess the function of the top part of this set. That's right, it's an orange squeezer. Don't go thinking it's palm-sized, though, it's approximately 9" tall, so it will handle all manner of freakishly large citrus. The dark oak wood juicer sits snugly into the ceramic vase when not in use. Bonus: it's on sale (reg.$89). ...Read more

Sphere Table

Hmm... the idea behind this Sphere Table is to be commended, but I believe we'll all have differing opinions as to the choice of materials. Now, considering this table was created by Hella Jongerius as a special furniture piece for North Delegates Lounge at the United Nations headquarters in New York, it's understandable that it has a commercial feel that some may not like for their own home's interior.
