    Forget The Handbag, These Trug Baskets Are The Perfect Accessory For A Trip To The Farmer’s Market

    Over the years, baskets have fallen out of favor in place of more convenient shopping bags, whether during grocery runs or a weekend trip to the farmer’s market.   If you have one of these Trug Baskets, however, we have a feeling you’ll be exceedingly compelled to leave the shopping bags at home. Created by English designer Jane Crisp, these are not your ordinary baskets.  Instead, these are stylish, eye-catching baskets that look like miniature pirate ships straight out of Tropico […]

  • Remmus Lounger Automatically Spins To Ensure Maximum Sunlight For Sun Bathing

    Remmus Lounger Automatically Spins To Ensure Maximum Sunlight For Sun Bathing

    We’re not entirely sure about the importance of the sun’s angle when it comes to getting a good tan.  People seem to do well enough just lying on a lounge chair and letting the clear skies do all the work.  But if you feel that directly facing the sun is your best bet to getting an optimal tan, then the Remmus Lounger is exactly the sunbathing companion you’ve been missing. A rotating outdoor lounge chair, it’s designed to follow the […]

    Maybe you enjoy being the one who stands over the grill, minding the meat, while the rest of the family just chill out and wait for their steaks to cook.  Well, I don’t.  If I’m going to be slaving over the grill, you will, too.  That’s why the world gave us this Grazing Grill. An outdoor table for six people, it comes with an integrated grill in the middle, so every member of the family can cook their own dogs, […]

  • Fossil Tiles Use Childish Hand-Drawn Lines To Create The Effect Of Prehistoric Remains

    Fossil Tiles Use Childish Hand-Drawn Lines To Create The Effect Of Prehistoric Remains

    These Fossil Tiles were intended to mimic the appearance of the preserved imprints of animals and plants from prehistoric times.  And when viewed from afar, they do look like that.  Up close, though, they reveal a more childish, playful design, with what appears to be hand-drawn lines doodled in varying patterns across each tile. Rather than mark each tile with imprinted remains of an easily discernible organism, they covered the entirety of each panel with the kind of patterns you […]

  • Every Evil Feline Deserves Her Own Cat Cave

    Every Evil Feline Deserves Her Own Cat Cave

    It’s way too easy to find pictures and videos of cats being absolute jerks, which is why I’ve always believed that cats will make the perfect supervillains of the animal kingdom.  Now, those supervillain cats can have the matching headquarters to fit their evil-mongering lifestyle: the Cat Cave. A dome-shaped cat house, it comes adorned with matching cat ears on top, so everyone can know this is where the baddest, meanest, jerkiest animal in the house lays her head.  Whether […]

    Avo Is A Self-Cleaning, Hassle-Free Tropical Fish Aquarium

    Having an aquarium teeming with fish is awesome.  Keeping up with the regular maintenance of a fish tank to ensure it stays clean, on the other hand, is a whole other matter entirely.  The Avo Self-Cleaning Aquarium changes that. A hassle-free tank for tropical fish, it removes much of the work that regularly come as part of keeping an aquarium.  Weekly water changes?  No more.  Changing the filter?  Forget about changing it, you don’t even need to clean it.  Scraping […]

    TJ Volonis Makes Copper Tubing Furniture That Aren’t Just Functional, They Look Amazing, Too

    Using copper tubing to build furniture may sound like a bad idea from both a functional and an aesthetic perspective.  Seeing what TJ Volonis did with this collection of Copper Furniture, however, definitely proves otherwise. Consisting of tables, chairs, benches, and shelves, every piece in the collection uses creatively-arranged copper tubing for the frame, turning out contemporary furniture items that look very much like intricate metal sculptures.   Seriously, these look as fit for a gallery as they would inside a […]

  • Cucumbo Turns Boring Cucumbers Into Vegetable Slinkies

    Cucumbo Turns Boring Cucumbers Into Vegetable Slinkies

    Similar to potato spiral cutters, the Cucumbo lets you turn cucumbers into a spiraling, coiling vegetable.  Unlike most spiral cutters, it’s just the size of a large bolt, making it both easy to use and convenient to store. Designed for use with cucumbers and zucchinis (or other vegetables with the same size and hardness), this kitchen tool lets you turn erstwhile boring vegetables you’ll either chop up into discs or dice up into tiny bits into a fun looking coil.  […]

    This Decorative Milo Lamp Can Double As A Greenhouse For Your Flowering Plants

    We’re not entirely sure whether the Milo should be classified as a lamp, a display case, or a mini-greenhouse.  It’s a bit of all three.  Place this on a table somewhere in the house and instantly add decorative portable lighting that you can customize with your own favorite potted plants. Made by Lightovo, it’s described as an “interior glass lampshade” designed to showcase an object placed inside the transparent container.  They recommend using it to draw attention to your favorite […]

    This Slice&Sharpen Cutting Board Houses A Built-In Knife Sharpener

    It’s easy enough to reach for the knife sharpener when you’re slicing up meat and realize it’s gotten a little too dull for comfort.  Until you realize the knife sharpener isn’t actually in the second drawer like you remember.  In fact, you can’t even find it anymore.  Yeah, that sucks.  If you had a Slice&Sharpen, your blade sharpening tool will never be too far away. Made by Joseph Joseph, it’s an erstwhile plastic cutting board with an integrated ceramic facility […]

    When it comes to outfitting a small house, combing functions in a single piece of furniture can do a lot to maximize the living space.   That’s why we’re huge fans of products like the Murphy Sofa Float and the Story All-In-One.  The Orwell is another one of these multifunction furniture pieces, giving you a sofa, a bed, and a veritable bedroom in one.

    This Rainy Pot Self-Watering Planter Is Impossibly Cute

    Like all self-watering planters, the Rainy Pot will trickle small amounts of liquid to your plant to keep it properly nourished.  Unlike them, it’s so impossibly cute you’ll probably want to keep it around even after you get bored with indoor gardening altogether. Designed by Seungbin Jeong of Daily Life Lab, it’s a wall-mounted planter with a pot at the bottom and a cloud on top.  Yes, a cloud.   Put your plant on the pot, fill up the cloud with […]

    Popping an entire bag of popcorn is all but impossible.  Chances are, you’ll always have a handful of unpopped kernels on that bucket, ready to annoy as you accidentally bite on them while trying to enjoy a movie from your Netflix queue.  We’ve, pretty much, accepted it as a permanent wrinkle when enjoying our favorite movie time snack.  Turns out, that doesn’t have to be the case if you eat using a Popcorn Bowl.

    Kahiko Table: Yes, This Is What A $100,000 Table Looks Like

    Yes, a $100,000 price tag for a table is absolutely preposterous.  But the Kahiko Table is made from materials that are just as absolutely preposterous, so every cent of that asking price is probably well deserved. The base?  It’s made from a composite of engineered wood and carbon fiber, with a unique geometric shape that looks like it will be right at home as part of a sculpture as it will be in your mansion’s dining room.  The centerpiece, though, […]

    Curl Up In Bed Right Next To This Greasy Giant Sausage Pillow

    There’s no shortage of pillows that look like food.  From candy bars to bananas to hotdogs, they exist.  But, darn it, if this Sausage Pillow isn’t the most realistic-looking hunk of greasy meat that’s actually just a cloth bag filled with stuffing ever made.  It looks positively delicious. Made by Beloved Shirts, this thing genuinely looks like it belongs in a plate, rather than a bed.  Except it’s sized like a real bolster pillow, so we doubt there’s a real […]

    These Beautiful Coastal Quilts Make For The Perfect Pirate Blanket

    If seafaring pirates ever made their own blankets (instead of just plundering the nicest one they can find), we’re guessing it will look like something like these Coastal Quilts, each of which come adorned with a map of the shoreline of a beautiful coastal city.  Except instead of the places featured in this collection, it will probably be ornamented with layouts of the places where they took the most plunder.  Which, admittedly, would have been more awesome. Made by Haptic […]

    Camou Is The Cowboy Chair The Wild West Missed Out On

    Modern cowboys don’t spend all their days on a horse in the field anymore.  They actually come inside the house, sit on a desk, and post pictures of the calf they corralled this morning on Facebook, too.  At least, that’s what I imagine they do (I actually have no idea).  But the Camou should definitely be the chair they sit on while doing all that. Designed by Christian Sjöström, it’s a chair that’s shaped like a saddle on a horse.  […]

    The Pikaplant One Shelf Will Water Your Plants All On Its Own

    We’ve seen many planters that come with integrated watering systems.  If you plan on keeping multiple potted plants around the house, though, it might be a better idea to get the Pikaplant One, a standing shelf that comes with its own automated watering facility. Described as “a low-maintenance vertical garden,” it waters the plants autonomously, using an ebb-and-flow process that allows it to work without requiring any electricity.  All you need to do is fill up the transparent water tank […]

    What would happen if you built a rocking chair using materials and techniques traditionally employed in making bicycles?  With the Randonneur Chair, it turned out to be a hot-looking piece of home furnishing. Named after the long-distance cycling sport, the rocking chair, literally, looks like a bunch of bicycle parts (look at those racing handlebars) that have been repurposed into a seating furniture that rocks back and forth.  Except it isn’t, since furniture designers Andrew McDonald and Simon Taylor of […]

    Haven Reinvents The Door Lock Into Something Way Stronger Than Deadbolt

    Smart locks are great, but they still use the same old locking mechanism that’s prone to giving out when someone brute forces their way through your door.   That’s why Haven, a new smart lock, does things an entirely different way. Rather than be situated along the height of the door, the redesigned lock sits on the floor, where it’s wedged right under the door, the strongest point of the entryway.  It’s, basically, a doorstop.  Except, instead of simply serving as […]

Combining a tent, a swing, and a trampoline, it gives kids their own private fort that’s suspended a short height off the ground.  It’s designed to rock back and forth across […]

Made by Restoration Hardware, the board measures 29.5 inches on all sides and rises 2.5 inches off the tabletop when laid out all ready for play.  […]

    3Moods Is An Incredible Transforming Furniture

    Transforming furniture is nothing new.  We’ve seen baby furniture that goes from cradle to crib to play table, as well as a bed that turns into a study table, among a host of others.  The 3Moods, however, does them all one better by turning into nearly every furniture you will need inside a small apartment. Spanish designer Humberto Navarro isn’t playing around.  This thing can be equipped into two kinds of sofa (one for four people, another for two), a bed, […]
