Wall Lamp

If you think you've seen this light before, you might be thinking of the Bracket Lamp by Dino Sanchez. There's similarities in the design, of course, but there's a few distinct details that perhaps explain the price difference.

There are three staggered dividers, any of which would also hold an iPad in easy reading position. It could live in the kitchen as a recipe reading stand or perhaps on your desk or entryway table as a charging ...Read more

Hanging Line Collection

Picking out decent (i.e. modern) bathroom accessories can be a pain, mostly because there's just not a lot to choose from in an affordable price range. That's why these silicone bands and hooks by Josh Owen are nice to see- they're very affordable and fun in an unstuffy, modern way. Use the bands and hooks for towels, newspapers, scrub brushes, etc. There's also a toilet paper holder (with a ...Read more

Bluelounge Backpack

Somehow I missed that Bluelounge, the cord/cable/charging station company, has gotten into the bag and backpack game. While backpacks can be hit or miss when it comes to fashion, this one makes the grade for its simple exterior style and very functional interior.

Bias Tray

If you fall in love with all things angular, here's a trapezoid tray that will tickle your fancy. While it was made to live on the accompanying Bias Large Ottoman, you might do better by mixing things up a bit and putting it on top of a credenza or dresser to corral smaller items. However, do keep in mind this is one large tray (32.25" W X 22.5" D), so it might ...Read more

Prouvé Potence Lamp

Mainly this lamp has resided in the in-case-I-inherit-money inspiration folder, but if you possess great skills in money management, maybe one day you'll have one for your very own. Designed by Jean Prouvé in collaboration with Charlotte Perriand in 1950, the Potence lamp provides overhead lighting on a pivoting swivel. The single metal rod extends almost 7 feet from the wall, which allows illumination in a 180-degree range without the fuss of ...Read more

Cobalt Blue Lacquer Desk

My goodness, take a look at the savings on this cobalt desk by John Reeves.

As it's January, most of us will find ourselves huddled around a hot bowl of soup for lunch or dinner. So, of course, let's look again at the Thermo-Pot from Black + Blum.
