Hot Kettle

Hot Kettle
Not that you need the warning, but this kettle gets HOT. The stainless steel body and handle have a distinct industrial vibe and its two red buttons safely release steam and hot water. Designed by Selab + Alessandro Zambelli for Seletti, it'll heat your water up safely and efficiently. (Note: boiling water in a pan for tea or coffee is sad. Get a kettle.) Material: Stainless Steel Dimensions: 7.5" Dia...Read more

Animal Boxes

Animal Boxes
A couple of years ago I saw a few of these Animal boxes by Karl Zahn lined up along a windowsill in someone's home, and it struck me how it would be a thoughtful tradition to give one each year as a gift for a friend or loved one. Each box represents a "power" animal, a sort of totem for one's ambitions. Plus, there's just enough room inside for something...Read more

Soba Cable Director from Bluelounge

Soba Cable Director from Bluelounge
Most of us would like to ignore the unfortunate mess of cords lurking underneath and around our desks. It's understandable, as organizing it all seems like such a pain. However, once you take a look at the Soba from Bluelounge, you might actually look forward to organizing those cords. Skeptical? Don't be.

ZZZ Stool

ZZZ Stool
Another piece from Ethnicraft's Universo Positivo collection? You got it, and it certainly won't put you to sleep. When a room has to function in multiple ways, it's best to choose pieces that are robust and versatile. This ZZZ Stool is made from powder coated steel and may also function as a side table, which checks off both boxes. One would assume it would be safe outdoors as well. Available...Read more

Squares Blanket

Squares Blanket
Autumn weather means cozying up with sweaters, and when available, wrapping yourself up in a warm blanket. For those chillier fall evenings, be sure you have a soft throw lying within reach of the sofa, as it's better to use a throw than to turn up the heat (save money, save energy). This Squares Blanket by Zuzunaga is woven by hand using 100% ecological French merino wool, and just try...Read more

SnapRays Guidelight

SnapRays Guidelight
There aren't many night lights to write home about (except for the Night Light Galaxy), and even less that are considered particularly safe for those kiddos running around. That's exactly why it's worth taking a look at the SnapRays Guidelight. It replaces your standard electrical outlet cover plate, and lights the way with LEDs embedded along the bottom edge. No more clunky night lights hogging your outlets. Installation is easy...Read more

Kobenstyle Casserole – Green

Kobenstyle Casserole – Green
Yes, your memory serves correct, we have featured the Kobenstyle Casserole dish before, but that was back in 2012 and it was a bright, tomato red. This time it's done in a green color exclusive to MoMA, and, who knows, that might appeal to your kitchen's aesthetic more than the red ever did. Kobenstyle was created in 1956 for Dansk®, a Danish manufacturer, and remains well known today for its...Read more

Two-Propeller Mobile

Two-Propeller Mobile
Do you need an expensive, tabletop mobile? No, you don't, unless you've got stacks of money lying around. However, you might want a "poetic work of wood, piano wire, and concrete" by François Azambourg, as it's a quiet piece of kinetic sculpture that's sure to calm your mind. If you're even a tiny bit interested, I can recommend watching the L'ATELIER d'exercices' video, as it shows how each mobile is...Read more

Crank Grinder and Bird Mill

Crank Grinder and Bird Mill
If you want, we could pretend you didn't read the title and you could guess what this wooden thingamajig might be. I'll wait while you guess. That's right! These strange wooden things are intended to grind salt and pepper. Have you ever seen such playfully odd tabletop tools? I doubt it. The Crank Grinder holds both salt and pepper while the Bird Mill is either/or. Designer Cas Holman was inspired...Read more
