Design studio urbancase has upcycled standard issue surplus blankets and turned them into something special. These heavy 100% wool throws are fixed up and stitched up in the firm's Seattle workshop, embroidered with an image in yellow and turquoise inspired by a subway car in Berlin. You're practically guaranteed a quick trip to cozytown when you're cuddled underneath.

Eje 1, a birch plywood side table by José Antonio Gurrola, is part of the very cool collection from Pirwi, a Mexico City-based manufacturer dedicated to sustainable processes and good, quality design. The line was just recently launched in the US and is sold here exclusively through Kirk, a gallery in Austin, Texas. www.kirkgallery.com
