These 3-in-1 cardboard cubes from Green Lullaby serve for seating, storage, and ABC learning. Eco-conscious and classically cute, they’re a perfect choice for style-conscious parents and discerning kids alike. You can buy them from Abe’s Market for $45.00 (shipping is free).
With a background in Illustration & Toy Design, mymimi’s original and super-cute illustrations are printed on 100% cotton mini pillows (they measure 7×7 inches). With a slant towards things that are geeky (floppy disks and happy color tv), animal (kitties, pandas, owls, etc), and anime (geisha girls), you’ll have trouble deciding!
Perhaps this is a rebellion against super-energy-efficient, environmentally friendly light bulbs.. but vintage bulbs are super trendy right now. Anthropologie offers the most stylish industrial-looking pendant lamps for housing Edison-style filament bulbs, but the craze has hit most major furniture stores (from Pottery Barn to Restoration Hardware). While lamps/pendants aren’t cheap, you can get beautiful old-style bulbs for under $10-$20:
You can buy these really cool 8oz. recycled glasses (made from your favorite bottled beverages) at the YAVA Glass Etsy Shop.
Scratching posts are unsightly – which is why this curvy scratcher, with it’s unconventional looks, is perfect for the living room (we keep ours under a side table). This scratcher has become a play-thing, scratching-thing, and a laying-around at all hours of the day thing. And that’s really the only problem – since the kitties tear up every part of the scratching surface (not just the sisal), we’re on our second one after about a year of use. But hey, the curvy scratcher is cheap enough.. and being guaranteed that the cats will like it always makes it worth it!
I first noticed this glass at a little French bistro I frequent on weekends. The omelets and crepes were accompanied by freshly-made fruit juice, served in this simple sturdy glass. I always liked the utilitarian cafeteria-style glasses, but fancy ones I found in stores always seemed to try too hard – they were too wide, too manly, too curved, too stylized. Who knew that indestructible, simple perfection was found for $.69 cents at IKEA?
Oh, and POKAL is Swedish for ‘cup’. How practical!
