Shredder Hand Scissors

This made the rounds a while back, but unable to find a source in the US, I never featured it. I was pretty excited to see that Compact Impact (an importer of great Japanese products) has added it to its list of wares.

Finally, a solution for streamlining your office and getting rid of that bulky shreader.

Update: Also available from Container Store for half the price.

City Fantasy Shade

These would provide a nice alternate view for those of you that might not have a desirable one.

Fantasy Shades: Fine art serigraph: white ink on white material creates a shadow from another city in your room. Pull down the shade and create an alternate reality! … 1. Umbrella Trees Create the illusion of a view of Rome from a rooftop apartment. The trees are just outside your window. 2. I left my heart in San Francisco The Golden Gate Bridge is just beyond reach. The shadow of the bridge is visible when you pull down the shade.”

Silverado Rectangular Table

Quite a deal on a table, if you ask me. Since the two bases aren’t attached, there’s versatility in the type of top you choose as well as the amount of leg room you need. You can push them together and have a round glass top for a smaller fit. This also could be a nice desk…

Droplet (dropper)

Something like this makes me want to cook just so I could use it.

“This curious object is intended to be a soy sauce dropper, but would work well for other liquids in your gourmet pantry, like your fanciest olive oil. Fill with your liquid of choice, hold your finger over the hole in the dropper and lift – you control the drops with a little bit of physics. This elegant glassware will look beautiful on your dining table.”

‘Me’ Box

It’s that time of year to start thinking about closing the files. Maybe a box like this will do the trick.

“At one end of this double-thick cardboard box is a grid of perforated discs. Punch out the discs to reveal a contrasting color; keep punching out discs until you’ve created a number, letter or symbol to help identify what’s stored inside. You can even arrange multiple MeBoxes in rows to create longer messages. MeBox ships flat, individually packed in a plastic bag with integrated handles. A versatile solution for office or home, use it to organize files, toys, holiday decorations, clothing and more. MeBox color combinations are: blue/fluorescent pink, grey/fluorescent yellow, white/fluorescent red and red/fluorescent green.”
