Miscellaneous Accessories

58″ Christmas Tree by Kuno Prey

If I follow the logic that all retail stores seem to go by, October the 1st is a perfect date to start talking about Christmas. Now, I disagree, and feel that the end of November is much more appropriate, but due to this perfect little tree being in limited supply I am going against the fibers of my being and posting this early.

“designed by kuno prey, Kuno Prey was a professor at the new Bauhaus Dessau School and is now at the Free University of Bolzano. (also see his other designs for danese & alessi)- …we have an EXTREMELY LIMITED SUPPLY. ADVANCE ORDERS WILL BE TAKEN WITH SHIPPING IN SEPTEMBER. Made in Germany…”

58″ high, 44″ widest branches, 22″ base with quick assembly.

Flyswatter by Erik Bagger for Rosendahl

“50 fibers of black polyester and a shaft of dull polished stainless steel, and even so Erik Baggers flyswatter cannot even hurt a fly. It only stuns the insect, which is helped out into nature once again โ€“ without spots on walls, tables or on your conscience.”

Horizontal Shoe Rack- Small

I think this is one of those things that you don’t fully appreciate until you actually own it. It would certainly organize entryways and decrease the chance of tripping over stray shoes. We’ve posted this before a while ago; now it’s available in the smaller size at a slightly more affordable price.

“The Horizontal Shoe Rack (2004) is a wall-mounted solution for organizing shoes. The simple design gives footwear the appearance of floating in air, and by taking shoes off the floor it simplifies the process of sweeping or vacuuming underneath.”

Brushed stainless steel.

Umbrella Stand by Eva Schildt

This is one umbrella stand that garners notice. Inspired by the artist Yves Klein, Eva Schildt uses a sponge to play on the theme of water. A steel frame contrasts nicely with the softness of the sponge.

Ornament and Crime by Maxim Velcovsky

I can’t really get enough of Maxim’s work. It’s a wonderful mix of traditional and modern.

“Maxim Velcovsky takes two of the most common decorations of his childhood in the former Czekoslovakia and welds them into this uncommon object – a bust of Lenin decorated with the famous blue onion pattern (which we in the states know as Delft).”

Snail Box by Jonathan Adler

Here is one of the latest additions to Mr. Adlers menagerie collection, the Snail Box. I have been smitten with this collection of decorative ceramics since its inception, and love it more with each new piece he introduces. With the snail, you get the addition of having a removable “shell” which can be used to store small items (though I think it kind of resembles a butter dish?).

Splash Umbrella Stand

I live in a place where it doesn’t rain that often, so I don’t know that I’ve ever actually seen one in a residence here, but it occurred to me that in some places, an umbrella stand might actually garner a lot of use.

Textile Softblocks

Molo, the designer of the “softwall”, has designed a pretty cool product called “Softblock” which are:
“Honeycomb building blocks that can be used alone, or stacked together to create functional surfaces, or partitions of varying heights and shapes.

Softblocks are available in sizes from 1′ to 4′ tall, and varying thicknesses, although all softblocks can be stretched open to as much as 12-15′ (4-5m) in length.

Softblocks are amazingly versatile and can be readily stacked up to 10′ (3m) tall. Softblock structures can be created with embeded display areas, and can be top, or back lit to create stunning results.

Textile softblocks are easy to manipulate, able to withstand rough handling, and are water and tear resistant. Softblocks have sufficient cell density when expanded to allow them to be stacked one upon another, and to support moderate amounts of weight (e.g., a 10lbs/5kg object displayed on a flat tray). The ends of softblocks are finished with a white sythetic non-woven material. Softblocks can be dusted, vacuumed and wiped clean with a damp cloth.

Textile softblocks are made of a polyethylene based sheet material that has a Class A flame spread rating and tends to shrink away from flame – however, this material will burn if a source of flame is sustained, and thus SHOULD NEVER BE PLACED NEAR AN OPEN FLAME OR HEAT SOURCE. Please inquire if further information required.”

Harry & Harry Junior

I love Harry. It’s an unusual method of wall-mounting storage. The anemone-like tendrils grab and hold small accessories such as keys, cell phones, and even flowers. The shapes change depending on the configurations you choose. The Harry would look best in odd multiples, like 3 or 5 or 7.

Who doesn’t want a little whimsy at places where you’re trying to keep the snoops and sticky fingers at bay?

Red Cross

If you’ve got some money to spend on a bathroom cabinet, may I recommend this? It’s kind of ‘spensive, but you’d have it forever and ever, and nobody would have to guess where the first aid stuff is (if you choose to use it for that).

Small cabinet with a fixed shelf inside.
Hardware included.
Enameled steel.

Wood Bridge Log Holder

I think I can honestly say this is one of the best log holders I’ve ever seen. I should also add that I haven’t really seen a whole lot, living where I do, but I think most people would agree that this particular holder is stylish and practical. If or when I move somewhere with snow, I’ll buy it faster than someone can say ”shovel the sidewalk”. Or something.
