Wooden Bike Hook

Is this a minimal bike hook? Yes, indeed, and I'm holding my hand up for a long distance high five here (air-five, as some might say). These bike hooks by Sandra Thomsen are just about as simple as you can get. Do note that they're intended for lighter sports bikes. You'll want to triple check that the wall is suitable and that you install the anchors correctly, otherwise you might ...Read more

Metal Folders by Debra Folz

For those papers and magazines that need a home, consider a folder- not a flimsy paper folder that sits on your desk- a metal folder that mounts on the wall. These aluminum folders by Debra Folz easily mount to the wall, giving you that extra space to organize your important documents. Can you see several scattered on the wall next to your desk? Because I sure can, and I don't ...Read more

Heavy Guy Chandelier XL

Update: TouchOfModern has this big guy on sale for $188 for a limited time. The smaller version of this chandelier has always stood out for its elegance and affordability, but man-oh-man, the extra large version is even better. It's almost 5 feet across! This is a prime example of getting one heck of a bang for a few bucks. Heavy Guy Chandelier XL: 59" D x 30" H (from ceiling to lowest section), reg. $240.00, ...Read more

Aalto stool 60, Rings

Another anniversary stool? Sure, let's have it. Alvar Aalto's three legged Stool 60 turns 80 this year, and we've already seen a few other versions that piqued our collective interest. Nao Tamura's version is decorated with the growth rings of a tree, 80 rings to be exact, and the size of the rings are never the same. Unfortunately, it appears that no US retailer carries it. Sad for those of us here in ...Read more

Loll’s Containers

So, with the nice weather here it might be time to add a few plants around your home. And, sure, your local plant nursery probably has plenty of decent pots and planters, but wouldn't it be nice to have something a little better than decent? Perhaps something that hits the modern/minimal spot? Take a look at Loll's containers and tell me if they're not better than these guys. Each ...Read more

Loop Tea Strainer

Another tea strainer. Aren't you excited? I know how important it is to you, that perfect (elusive?) cup of tea, and Kinto has yet another option to consider. This stick-shaped tea strainer has a slidable side that allows you to scoop tea leaves directly without the use of a spoon. Slide the side back down to cover, and then place in your cup with hot water. The slidable part is ...Read more

Tilt Stool

An earlier iteration of this stool by Justin Gologorsky had a foam covering and was more than twice the current price, so I'd say this updated version is worth a look or two. The Tilt Stool has a gentle curve to its base, allowing you to keep your core muscles engaged by rocking back and forth. Turn it on its side and it becomes a stable seat or side table. ...Read more

Mass Book Stand

So, does the ubiquity of the Sapien Bookcase have you down? Are you sick of seeing it in some of the modern interiors magazines, and you want to spend at least $2,500 more on something a bit more out of reach, maybe by a successful designer? After all, those piles of cash aren't going to spend themselves. Seriously though, this chunky book stand by Mr. Tom Dixon is mightily impressive. At ...Read more

Rinse Bowl & Strainer

A rinsing bowl that has a strainer is different from just a strainer, right? Right. This bowl has a strainer 'side' that folds out to catch your pasta/fruit/veggies, so you can rinse and then strain out the water all in one bowl. Sort of smart, isn't it? Also available in red and green/avocado. Designers: Helen T. Miller / Jordan Murphy...Read more
