Canon Wine Tilt

 

Canon Wine Tilt takes any table or countertop to the next level. Crafted in 3D printed porcelain, Canon is designed to hold most standard wine bottles. The cylinder tilts the bottle at a 45-degree angle and can function as either storage or to provide greater aeration for an already open bottle. At the base, its horizontal tunnel holds a standard corkscrew and is the perfect hiding place for a cork and foil, to keep the table tidy.

Dana Oldfather

 

Dana Oldfather‘s paintings are so full of life and energy, I’d like to jump inside one and bounce around for awhile. They remind me a little of electrical storms with each one’s mood dictated by the color palette Oldfather has chosen.

Doormats for Dirty Soles

Adventure Doormat // Anchor Coir Doormat // DIY Winking Doormat // Fern Fronds Doormat

If you have kids or pets or simply wear shoes, rainy spring weather can really play havoc with your clean floors. A sturdy doormat with lots of texture is key to tracking the least amount of dirt into your space. I actually like to go with the one indoor/one outdoor combo during especially wet days for maximum grime grabbing and minimal cleanup.

Andy DeCola

 

Andy DeCola creates the unexpected – in the form of paintings that masquerade as collages. The Burlington, Ontario-based artist paints and creates as a response to the media that surrounds us as a culture. It’s the interesting color palettes and juxtaposition of patterns that catch my eye most.

Nordic Kitchen

 

If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you likely own a very heavy cast iron pan. Eva Solo‘s Nordic Kitchen line reinvents the classic – and then some – by starting with an aluminum and using the cast iron as a finish. A special four layer coating gives each pot and pan a surface that doesn’t require a lot of fat when cooking and that’s easy to clean, and and oak handle adds a touch of Scandinavian design. Use them on all heat surfaces, including induction, then throw them in the dishwasher to clean. The collection includes various sizes of pots, frying pans, a saucepan, a sauté pan, and a grill frying pan, as well as a beech wood knife stand, black mixing bowls, and oak and leather cutting boards.

Charlotte Hopkins Hall

 

London-based painter Charlotte Hopkins Hall‘s figures appear to be lost in their own thoughts, ignoring the viewer and everything else. But if you had the picture perfect hair they each possess, wouldn’t you as well? Charlotte paints the dreamiest highlights, and the negative space she uses in every piece makes them stand out all the more.

Grant Legassick / Urban Etchings

 

Grant Legassick‘s Urban Etchings are in a league of their own. By taking multiple photos and layering them overtop one another – similar to a double exposure – Legassick creates the illusion of a pencil drawing or etching. Each city street turns into a story with its own flow and imagined movement.

Loes Heerink / Vendors from Above

 

The lives of street vendors are fascinating and a bit mysterious. Photographer Loes Heerink captured Hanoi’s vending scene, aptly named Vendors from Above, oftentimes standing atop the city’s bridges for hours in wait of the perfect shot. Their bicycles packed high with fruits, vegetables, and flowers, each vender wakes at 4am and pedals miles per day selling her goods. Heerink is currently selling a book of the series through her site.
