Elliptical Standing Mirror

Decidedly different, this floor mirror looks like it should cost more than it does. Such a great shape…

“Resembling an elegant tube of lipstick, the Elliptical standing mirror is a standout addition for anywhere you want to get a look at yourself: bedroom, bath, dressing room, entrance hall. Measuring 67″ tall and a mere foot in diameter, this interesting piece takes up little space but adds a lot of style. ”

Cream or Brown ecoleather.

12w x 67h/ 22lbs

Originally available from La Diff for $599.

big time clock

This clock is pretty perfect…and, at 20″ square, it would certainly make a statement.

“Sophisticated in a modern white square, time keeps its cool with surprising proportions and bold black and orange hands. Hangs easily on a wall. Or you can display it on a shelf or mantle. Use this oversized, modern clock to elevate any room or decor. Uses one AA battery, not included.”

DOSSIER Magazine Holder

I’m someone who prefers to do bill paying and other household paper management in front of the HBO device instead of at a desk, so something like this would be great for tethering all my bills and such without worry about losing any important paperwork. It’s officially a magazine holder and I’m sure it works great for that too.

Lovely little stool that would be well worth the price paid.

As if it was a sheet, left to dry, waving in a summer breeze, the form of this stool is designed for maximum structural performance, using minimal elements.”

Polder Sofa by Hella Jongerius

I love this sofa.
“In Holland Polder refers to the artificial land reclaimed from the sea by means of dikes and drainage canals. The corpus of the Polder Sofa is just as low-lying, just as flat, and with just as much emphasis on the horizontal. For it Hella Jongerius chose five carefully selected combinations of colours and fabric qualities, accentuating them with high-tech threads and large buttons made of natural materials.” Materials: wooden frame with belt upholstery, backrest cushions: polyurethane chips and microfibres, textured surface and seat cushion: polyurethane foam and polyester wool, armrest with sand weights, buttons made of natural materials.
Available in with left-hand armrest or right-hand armrest Available in two sizes: XL and XXL
XXL H 30.75t; x L 131 x D 39.25

Blackjack Sectional

“It’s the conversation pits. Three easy modular pieces— armless chair, corner seat, ottoman—rubik’s cube their way into endless scenarios in no-show, can’t-miss black.

Bent Plywood Single Feeder

I really like this pet dish. You’ve seen the dual dish before but they’ve just recently released the single feeder which is a slightly more economical choice for those of us with discerning tastes who are also on a budget.

“The Bent Plywood Feeders hold dishwasher-safe stainless steel bowls in a platform that’s raised, which encourages digestive health benefits believed to be associated with elevated feeders. Each layer of plywood is bonded electronically in a high-pressure mold with water- and temperature-resistant resins. Three heights are available to fit animals of different sizes.”
