Thunderbolt™ Express Dock

This thin, silvery box and accompanying cable might as well come with a top hat and wand for what it promises. An HD film downloaded in 30 seconds? A year's worth of music synced in 10 minutes? Huh? Oh yes, it's all the magic of Thunderbolt™ technology. Thunderbolt™ moves data on two bidirectional 10Gbps channels, which means that it's 20 times faster than USB 2.0 and 12 times faster than FireWire 800. The Thunderbolt™ Cable ($39) does ...Read more

This Is Fun. Space Prints.

Isn't it? At least it will be until the three limited editions are sold out, and then everyone except the 3 people who bought the prints will email with the why-the-hell-did-you-post-something-in-such-limited-quantities message, and I'll be forced to explain that these prints were one of the few things that I found today that truly proves that affordable art does, in fact, exist. Plus, it's 'fun'. White text "THIS IS FUN" is screen ...Read more

Verge Desk

At first glance, this desk reminded me of the Stash Desk by Blu Dot, but after taking a second look, it's really not a fair comparison due to the dimensions. Sure, the Stash desk is a winner for its price and simplicity, but this desk is super sleek and has an additional 20" in length for desktop space. Just take a look at it in another color and you'll understand the ...Read more

Troika Trivet

There has been a few interesting trivets lately, which is weird considering that trivets aren't usually paired with that particular adjective, or even talked about outside of specialized kitchen shops.

Edge Stackable Chair

One glance at all the surface planes on this aluminum chair and it's easy to see how it was inspired by the art of origami. Sure, it doesn't fold (like some other aluminum chairs) but considering the nice profile we'll settle for the stackable option. Each chair takes around eight hours to manufacture- that helps explain the price tag- and can be used indoors or out. An optional seat pad ...Read more

Circle Rug

Where can you get a 6' circle rug for less than $200? Lots of places, it turns out, with a little bit of internet sleuthing. However, sometimes the materials and/or designs are a bit iffy and you've no idea if it will look cheap in person. There's no guesswork involved with a braided 100% cotton rug, however. This braided grey rug with its eco-friendly dye and white zigzag stitching makes a ...Read more

Wet Wipes Case

What is meant to be kept in these nicely shaped canisters? Might as well cut to the chase: wet wipes. If wet wipes are in any way integral to your day (pets, kids, or maybe you're just a messy eater), you know the packaging isn't going to win any awards. Instead of lamenting how graphic/packaging design caters to the masses, pop those suckers into one of these ceramic canisters ...Read more
