Perimeter Tray

I know, a serving tray is not on the top of your list on this Monday morning after the holiday weekend. I wouldn't care much either, except it's the Perimeter Tray, and if you remember from our previous post last year, it normally retails for $195. And now MoMA Store has it on sale for $139.95 ($125.95 members). That's a price that one could afford for a nice tray made of reclaimed walnut ...Read more

The Chimney Box

Fire and being outdoors go hand in hand, don't they? There's lots of options available to house a small fire, but I doubt any of them come close to the efficiency of the Chimney Box by Tom Goodson. Handmade in Texas, each Chimney Box is made out of 1/4 inch, 1/8 inch and 14 gauge steel. A triangular shaped hearth allows for wood to be burned "teepee" style; this design allows for a ...Read more

Moon Dominoes

Moon Dominoes! I'd guess almost all ages could play this game, though don't let any small children/toddlers get anywhere near this lovely painted wood set, or else you'll have small bite marks all over them. Designed/made by Fredericks & Mae, who also happen to have some new products that are very notable and will no doubt be featured soon (Bushel Brushes? So very fun).

Linen Towels

You and Me Ping Pong Table

Pingpong anyone? Imagine special meals around this dining table: a nice dinner with the family, then bring out the net and it's every man/woman for himself/herself. The first serve goes straight into the mashed potatoes and the second hits your Uncle (accidentally, of course, he got in the way when he was clearing the dishes) because you were overzealous with your best backhand stroke. You can't let [insert ...Read more

Glass Knobs by Tom Dixon

Pretty, aren't they? Each Glass Knob is made of extra thick pressed glass, just like you've seen in head lamps or those older glass insulators. With two sizes and a few different colors, you have the opportunity to create an interesting art installation as well as a useful group of hooks for clothes and bags. Install a few in the entryway, or a bunch in the bedroom. Either way you'll ...Read more

Pipe Candle Holder

Danish designer Pernille Vea based this candle holder on a 6th century Viking design she saw in the National Museum. It's rudimentary, for sure, yet it's also quite handy as outdoor lighting as you could hammer or spike them into trees, the ground, the table, etc. (just make sure if it's your table you're all right with a few holes). And, they're on sale: $24 down from $35. See Danish designer Pernille ...Read more

Long Drink Set

If you've not seen Cool Hand Luke, you need to watch it this summer, preferably with a cool drink poured from the pitcher of this Long Drink Set. Now, this set isn't cheap like the loads of plastic pitchers and tumblers stuffing the shelves of every store right now, but it does add an air of sophistication no matter the event. Each piece is hand crafted using age old glass ...Read more

Contour Key Rings

There's something altogether satisfying about a large key ring. It's less likely to get lost, for one, and hooking it onto a bag or belt is much easier, even if you do sound like a janitor when you're walking around. A screw clasp will save your fingers/fingernails, and each one would hold dozens of keys, or perhaps just ensure that the two or three keys you carry around won't ...Read more

SR Wall Hooks

If you're absolutely sick of scrubbing out the words 'Drunk Octopus wants to fight you' around the vicinity of that ubiquitous two-pronged hook (you know the one I mean), may I direct you towards Scout Regalia's Wall Hooks? There's no off-kilter eye and the tentacles are decidedly steadfast and sober, so it won't inspire any more graffiti upon your walls.
