Tools for Living
Just in time for budgets to shrink everywhere, Design Within Reach unveils their new Tools For Living line of impeccably designed everyday objects. All pieces that are much cheaper than a Saarinen table but more expensive (and more beautiful) than, say, a Brita.
Although still out of reach for many, the Tools for Living line is a great gateway drug for higher design. Sucked in by a minimal stapler or the perfect trivet, the Tools give you a taste for something better and for less than what the big pieces go for. Some may balk at the $90 price tag for something like the water filter (it never needs new filters), but having seen a lot of the pieces close up, they are beautiful, solid, and well designed–virtually modern heirlooms in the making.
