Rustic Storage Coffee Table: basically beautiful

Wood is the magical material for design and it is best left un-manipulated for the most part. Maybe a few ornaments or a couple of beveled edges. But wood, especially if it’s solid, not some pulp material, is beautiful by itself. It was used by the master carpenters of old, and it should remain basically unchanged. Continue reading

And while these cables are very useful, and completely necessary until wireless charging is standard, they’re annoying, to say the least.

The Cablehub is the perfect remedy. Continue reading

Hanging Line: Makes Perfect Sense

wall-storage-hanging-line6

Made of nothing more than a line, a magnet, and two brackets, the Hanging Line is an example of a design that includes only what is necessary and does exactly what it is supposed to do. The Hanging Line is a wall-mounted magazine and towel holder as well as a toilet paper roll holder. It was also designed with a special hook that can be attached to brushes or hand-held mirrors you may want to hang, too. Continue reading

There are few things in this modern life than the accumulation of tangled cables in piles on the floor. Yes, they power our ever-important devices, our many, many devices, but I’m sure everyone has experienced the instantaneous rage from getting caught up in a bundle of computer cords. Until there’s some source of completely wireless power, it’s up to designers to create a useful anti-clutter tool. CableBin from Bluelounge is any tangled-agitated individual’s dream.

OK, so I have to ask: how come no one thought of this before? I mean, we’ve all been there, picking up and dropping our kids at soccer practice or making runs to the supermarket or shopping mall – wherever we’re driving, loose stuff in the back always seem to end up rolling and sliding from one side to the other, making a total mess.

Let’s face it, most car trunks need a little organization. I know mine does… Now, there are a lot of different organizers out there, but then I found out about what could possibly be the simplest trunk organizer ever! Meet the Stayhold. Continue reading

Citybook modular shelving: home living with love

modular-shelving-citybook2

It is pretty possible that one of the first things you begun to draw as a little child were houses. You know, these super simple structures consisting of two – almost – parallel vertical lines and two more meeting each other on the top, forming the triangular roof. Being officially an adult since a few decades now, this uber simple design still manages to totally move me and in fact rock my world. Perhaps cause there is in fact no place like home in the world. Additionally perhaps there’s nothing like a child’s interpretation of the adult world. I’ve been so happy to be seeing lately, this simplified structure representing a house, incorporated in magnificent design. Like the Citybook bookcases, modular and flexible shelving design suitable for all kind of spaces. Continue reading
