Industry West

Four words..

Bergman Chair, $400

Bergman Chair, $400

define the furniture company Industry West and they are: “Design, Quality, Value, and Community”. They give back to the community, use solid materials and make pieces that are sturdy and clean. I’m loving the industrial feel (and the price point’s not so bad either).

Fred & Friends Freeze Handgun-Shaped Ice-Cube Tray

Saw this..

Fred & Friends Freeze Handgun-Shaped Ice-Cube Tray

and yes, while not being an essential, it is totally cool and quite fun for one of those “got everything” people. The Handgun-Shaped Ice-Cube Tray from Fred & Friends pretty much does what it says – makes ice cubes that are shaped like guns. It comes in a flexible silicone briefcase-shaped exterior complete with a handle. Dishwasher safe, so doesn’t get much easier. Pick yours up at Amazon. You’re guaranteed to have the coolest ice-cubes in town.

Safari Animal Magnet Set

Every fridge..

Safari Animal Magnet Set, $13

Safari Animal Magnet Set, $13

needs magnets.  I’m a huge fan of the basic steel ones. They’re simple, clean and let the card, invite or picture make the statement. But sometimes it’s fun to step it up and these Safari Animal Magnets do just that.  Hand painted with non-toxic paints in a blue that’s hard not to love. Comes as a set of four, sold at Etsy and very worth it.

Plant Ring

Always..

Plant Ring

Plant Ring

a great source for inspiration and MAKR does it again with this plant holder. Plants can easily brighten up a home, but if you’re like me and don’t have much space, have frisky pets or a curious kid, it can get tricky. This plant ring can be put out reach so you can still enjoy the beauty.

Cupa Vino Wine Glasses

Love the look of..

Cupa Vino Wine Glasses

Cupa Vino Wine Glasses

stemless wine glasses and these Cupa Vino Wine Glasses take it to a whole new level. They’re available on AHAlife and are hand made by traditional Italian glass blowers from pure lead-free crystal. For the connoisseurs out there, the design creates swirling when set down, which facilitates the oxygenation of the wine. Whether that’s a selling point or not, you’ve got to admit, they’re pretty cool.

Core Bamboo

Awesome..

Core Bamboo Bowls

Core Bamboo Bowls

assortment of kitchen products made out of bamboo.  Bamboo, which is actually a grass is super strong, naturally anti-microbial and grows much faster than wood so it’s ideal for things like bowls, knives, placemats, and everything else Core Bamboo makes.  Colorful, light and very practical. Just a great call.

Portable Boombox

Saw this..

iHome iP4 Portable Boombox

iHome iP4 Portable Boombox

online last week and fell in love with the aesthetic.  I’ll be honest, I know nothing about the performance. Looks old-school, but don’t be fooled, this Portable Boombox is totally relevant: it’s made for an iPhone or iPod. So what’s it gonna be – hot pink or (or the maybe more practical) black?
