Basket Newspaper Rack

 

If you’re a lover of both periodicals and modern design, then I have a sneaking suspicion that Basket newspaper rack might peak your interests! British industrial designer Benjamin Hubert used solid wood and veneer to create this stunning silhouette and updated alternative to the traditional newspaper rack. Use it to store everything from magazines to knitting gear.

Flower Constellations

 

I love having fresh flowers in my home and will pare down a bouquet as it wilts until only a few blooms remain. Flower Constellations make floral arranging using only a few stems super easy thanks to a flat brass disk with openings that can expand and contract to fit a variety of vases.

The perforated patterns in the 12 different Flower Constellations are derived from the signs of the Zodiac, creating a playful distribution of the flowers in the vase. ​The design is loosely inspired by floral artform Ikebana, celebrating the beauty and composition of single flowers.

Bison Home

 

Twenty-one years ago creative director Brian Turks founded Bison Home by combining Scandinavian and Asian influences to create an aesthetic with simple lines and put colors. (Side note: the logo draws its origin back to the elegant simplicity of Bronze Age cave paintings in Altamira in Spain!) Since then the label’s range has expanded, always using the finest materials and including a wide range of colors and textures.

Each piece is designed… based on a personal experience or reflection. Our milk bottles stem from handleless jugs at my grandmother’s home. The mixing sets from baking and the battle over who got the spoon versus the bowl. Cucina platters originate from outdoor summer dining in Sweden with an endless supply of seafood. Our fågel pitchers are based on geese and their spouts reflect the indolent way they hold their heads as they walk. Each memory resonates with us and in the same manner we try to convey it to others.

Otherland Candles

 

I rely on a plethora of good smells to balance out my five pet home, the latest of which is Otherland‘s candles. Founder Abigail Stone noticed a gap in the market between high end overpriced candles and lower priced ones that were dominating the market and set out to fill it with her new line. A master perfumer creates Otherland’s with scent notes ranging from classics like sandalwood to the more unique saffron. I’m especially into their summer collection, which is burning in my living room at this very moment. The three scents – Stone Fruit (plum, peach skin, brown sugar), Matchpoint (tennis ball, cut grass, cucumber), and Freshwater Pearl (sea crystal, salt water, crushed shells) – bring instant summer nostalgia and the 1980s to mind. Photographer Henry Hargreaves to shot the collection which was directly inspired by the wacky geometry, day-glo colors, and zig-zagging angles of the Memphis design movement that we can’t seem to get enough of.

When push comes to shove I will choose a match over a lighter any day of the week. This pocket-sized Fire Kit comes with strike anywhere matches that can be lit directly on the radial striker machined into the bottom of the canister. The waterproof canister also features a precision knurled cap for grip and is engraved with the message “Fire – Light & Warmth – Strike on bottom”.
