I know this shelf from Finnish design firm Kayiwa isn’t in the least bit functional. But come on – you’ve got to admit that it’s pretty cool. Especially for typography nerds. But before you go thinking you’ll run out and get one, I feel obligated to let you know that one of these babies will run you 15,000 € (that’s around $21,000). Too bad. My son really likes letters.
I was recently introduced to Tyke Threads, and so far I’ve been happy with the collection I’ve seen there. Much cooler stuff than you can usually get at your local Babies R Us. Like this Western shirt from Wonder Boy. Perfect for when my 1-year-old wants to show off his rugged side.
When he gets a little older (read: 2), and worries more about being seen as a pseudo-intellectual, he can wear one of these shirts from Out of Print. They recently added a kids section to their fun line of “shirts on a mission.” [via Cool Hunting]
Now on to the grown-up stuff. I don’t think Miles would be all that interested in this tobacco and sandalwood scented candle from Sydney Hale Co. (available on Etsy). Sounds pretty great to me, as long as it isn’t too strong. There is such a thing as “overly manly,” especially when it comes to scents.
And I must introduce you to this little goodie from Nau (a company that does great things, and that you should absolutely check out). Referred to as “organizational origami,” the “Fluent Stash” keeps everything organized in an amazingly stylish way. The above opens up to the below, for carrying pretty much whatever you need.
The coup de grâce of this week’s list was brought to me by Etsy’s relatively new “Dudes” mailing list (a small step in the right direction for inclusion of guys in the site). I am loving these iPhone docks by Woodtec. They even have docks that support the iPad. Now I just need an iPad.
What interesting stuff have you found lately?
