RoCoco Chalkboard Sticker from Wall Candy

As you probably know, wall stickers have gone crazy. I don’t know what the market for wall stickers was three years ago, but know a days you can’t get away from them. But what innovations are left in the wall sticker business? Chalkboard wall stickers, as far as Wall Candy is concerned. They have recently […]

Lite Tapestry Tower: a Floor Lamp by Aswoon

Have you been wondering how to dispose of your old couch, but you don’t want to send it off to a huge landfill? I’ve got an idea! Rip the thing apart and break it down into its component pieces. And when you get to the springs, cut those up and turn them into a chic, […]

Benjamin Hubert Desk Acessories for Welmade

Do you remember when you were a kid, and your mother gave you a toy comprised of a board with various geometric holes in it along with a number of colored sqaures, stars and spheres? I remember this at least. It was a toy that teased your brain to fit the blocks in the right […]

BKLYN Designs: uhuru

uhuru, to me, may have been the most impressive furniture designers I saw at BKLYN Designs in terms of their creative reuse of industrial products. For example: the Stave Bench and the Bilge Lounge reuse whiskey barrels from the finest white oak. These barells are charred and used only once in the barreling process then […]

BKLYN Designs: Vexell

This Sunday, I attended BKLYN Designs in the Dumbo Neighborhood of Brooklyn and was impressed with the level of craft by the offerings. Over the next few days, I hope to feature a few of the most exciting small companies I observed. Today, I’d like to mention Vexell. Vexell’s furniture, as was the case of […]

Tape Dispenser by J-Me

Like so many other products on, there is not much you need to say beyond your immediate visceral reaction to clever products such as this tape dispenser. Yep. It’s a tape dispenser in the form of that all important audio media device: the cassette tape. The design is so damn cute. And at twenty […]

the beautiful game by GRO Design and Tim Modelmakers

You could say a lot about The Beautiful Game table soccer that just made its debut in Milan yesterday, but you could really keep the comment down to one. This is the most insanely beautiful table game. Enough Said. 11 – the beautiful game

The Iris Coffe Table by Michael Bihain

I recently covered a chair by Michael Bihain which I liked, but this piece I love. It feels like an instant classic. Why? First because it’s so simple. It is a single piece of plate steel or laser cut into shape and bent precisely into its final form resembling an iris. It’s iconic, easy to […]

Knife Hooks by TC Studio

I love the playful stories that come to mind when you install a number of knife hooks into your wall. For instance, you could tell people that you were attacked by a blind knife thrower who left all these knives in your wall, and when you left them there in your walls as a memento […]

Kartell – Lovely Rita Bookshelf

Lovely Rita is not just a meter maid. It is, for some inexplicable reason, also a bookshelf designed for Kartell by Ron Arad. I’m assuming Mr. Arad is a Beatles fan judging by his pieces names, because no matter how I slice it, I don’t see how this piece relates to “Lovely Rita”. But look […]
