  • the placemat least for today

    i was thinking about placemats today. i think they are interesting and odd! i wonder whose idea it was to create these. for me it is more about design/look then function. i don't mind getting the table dirty!

  • User Post of the Day: shadow lamps - the cheaper version

    i found these great tord boontje lights at pop deluxe. i think they are super cool but also are super expensive at $175 each.

    while these lights rock, i found some at ikea (when i ventured there a few weeks brooklyn!). i think these are very similar and give the same feel. this is called the smart table lamp and is only $19.99. Check them out here. this is the twig.

    this one is called snowflake.

    the knubbig table lamps were really cool in person. my favorite was the black. i think it would look cool as a centerpiece on a dinnertable or for a wedding. or on your bedside table! the small version is only $8.99 and the bigger is $16.99. find them here. - carolyn clark
