Ichiro Iwasaki Cup Table

While this glass table might not be the best choice for a home with kids, it does have a certain appeal with its unexpected material. The colors are a nice change from the usual wood/black/white color options usually expected from the side table category, and, as an extra function, you can flip the table over and use it as a very large vase or as a storage vessel ...Read more

Hollister Table

This Hollister Table is an affordable console option, and, correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks pretty good for the price. An iron base supports a natural wood top, and that's about it. No frills, no fuss, just a table to fit in wherever you need an extra surface. Would it fit in your entryway as a landing pad for keys and mail? Maybe. Behind a sofa for displaying ...Read more

Nice! The Ringtool is a compact toolkit that lives on any standard keyring. Hardened stainless steel (strength + corrosion resistance) means it'll withstand a rough and tumble world. It has five different Hexheads, a Flathead and Phillips Driver, a Torxhead, and two Spoke Wrenches, so it's a good choice for any cyclist that would rather not lug around a bigger toolkit. - Made in the USA - Lifetime warranty Features: -Bottle-cap ...Read more

Perseo Suspension Lamps

If you happen across the frosted version of the Perseo Suspension Lamp, you might assume at first glance that it is made of paper. Not a surprise, as Japanese paper lanterns were the inspiration behind these mouth blown Murano glass pendants. Now, considering each lamp is mouth blown, they aren't inexpensive, however, considering their faceted surface and fragility, it's easy to make sense of the price tags. Available in transparent ...Read more

Gordon Stool

Yes, you could go the super modern route when choosing your barstools, or you could pick a softer, quieter option like the Gordon Stool.

Coated metal frame. Made in USA Counter Height: 27"H / 16"W / 13 3/4" Seat Bar Height: 29 1/2"...Read more

Geometric Fire Pit

Remember this guy? It's your best choice for a fire pit, in my humble opinion. For example, there's this other Geometric Fire Pit ($998), which has a very similar shape, but it doesn't have an optional wood top for coffee table use ($160-$222) or a grill top ($175-289) to make food part of the party. Those two additions make sense of the slight price difference, don't you think? Choose between the ...Read more

Jens Bench

The Jens Bench, designed by (you guessed it) Jens Risom for DWR, features a cushion that can be positioned to the right, left, or center to ...Read more
