Smeg '50s Retro Style Electric Kettle
Beautiful retro aesthetics meet high-powered contemporary performance in a die-cast, powder-coated steel kettle. This kettle makes it a breeze to heat water for tea, oatmeal and more.
SIN Duo Candlestick
Double flicker. If you’re not already a groupie for this candlestick’s cousin get ready to be twice as taken. This little unglazed terracotta beaut has an unusual coiled structure that looks almost as if it’s hovering above the surface. And, let’s face it, two lights are always better than one.
Sterno Home Flameless Wax Candles With Remote
Flicker without fear.  Meet the most realistic flameless candles you've ever seen. We’re so into these real-wax versions with a moving wick on top—just like the real thing.
Design Within Reach Bookend Sculptures
Bookend Sculptures (2017) are more than ordinary bookends. These beautiful marble pieces seem massive standing alone, but when books are placed in between, they suddenly blend in, becoming almost invisible. Made in Portugal.

Working out of their own design studio in Oslo, Norway, designers Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll create furniture, textiles and interiors that are richly inspired by their surroundings.
Sibilia Hand-Painted Metallic Moon Coasters (Set of 4)
Down to earth. Stunning isn’t a word usually used to describe coasters but yeah, we said it. Crafted in Buenos Aires, Argentina at the Sibilia Studio, each of these soft-edged copper coasters is hand painted and patinated, so no two are alike.
Gubi B-4 Table Lamp
Designed by Greta M. Grossman, the B-4 Table Lamp (1945) has playful angles and geometric elements that are evident in much of her work. It’s distinguished by colorful movable visors that allow light to diffuse softly around any table it stands on. Its silhouette, with its stilt base and...

Pumpkin carving is easier and safer with these high-quality chef's tools from Messermeister. Each tool has a strong stainless-steel body with an orange soft-grip handle for a comfortable, secure feel. The pumpkin scraper cleans seeds and pulp and thins pumpkin walls.
Fredericks & Mae Cedar Rope & Palo Santo Incense
Burn, baby, burn. Add to your incense burner a pack of cleansing, refreshing palo santo incense sticks from Ecuador or forest-y cedar incense rope (both sold separately from the stand)—so you can switch things up depending on your mood.
Fritz Hansen Tea Light Candleholder
Spanish designer Jaime Hayon immersed himself as a teenager in both skateboard culture and graffiti art, which lie at the core of the bold and whimsical forms he creates today.
Tom Dixon Spin Candelabra
A Candelabrum with rotating arms, made from robust, honest indestructible cast iron. Five candles can be placed on its extending arms.
Creekside Farms Japanese Fall Harvest Wreath
Autumn glory. Fall harvests aren’t just about pumpkins, corn, and squash: Autumn’s also the time of year when grain fields go from green to golden.
Menu Cyclades Vases
A fresh take on the past. The Cyclades Vase by Menu is inspired by ancient Aegean art and pottery. Crafted of ceramic, it features a simple inverted bell shape with an understated pedestal to complement décor while letting a bouquet take center stage.
Areaware Totem Pillar Candles (Set of 3)
These sculptural candles made from unscented paraffin wax are so pretty we almost don’t want to light them—they’re like small artworks unto themselves (the candle forms were originally created by turning beeswax on a lathe).
Architectmade Gemini Candle Holder
Inspired by the beauty of possibility, Gemini (1967) is a perfect marriage of form and function, distinguished by clean lines and simple purity, highlighted by several different color options. Use one as a standalone, or arrange multiples in endless combinations. Candle not included.
The Citizenry San Cristobal Wall Hanging
Minimal, geometric shapes brought to life in luxe bronze, this wall hanging is simply stunning. Style it in a gallery wall or let it fly solo – either way, it adds an elegant finish to any space. This piece was designed for The Citizenry by Austin-based designer, Corie Humble.
Light + Ladder Saturn Bowl
A bowl from outer space.  Inspired by planetary shapes (ahem, we’ll let you guess which one), this bowl isn’t your run-of-the-mill table centerpiece.
Underwater Plantlife 10 by Jennifer Ament Print
Jennifer Ament is a Seattle based Artist who works in a variety of mediums such as watercolor paintings, collages, encaustics, and linocut prints.
FLOS Bellhop Portable LED Table Lamp

Cofield Handturned Arched Black & Maple Book Ends
The end(s). Our love of books extends beyond cookbooks, and often beyond the confines of our bookshelves. That’s when bookends come in handy, and this pair of hand-turned, solid maple bookends in a subtle whitewash finish are just the thing to hold everything from poetry to prose in place.
Bordallo Pinheiro Pumpkin Earthenware Bowl
For a quirky addition to your kitchen décor look to Bordallo Pinheiro’s green pumpkin bowl. It’s crafted from glazed earthenware ceramic with a realistic exterior in tune with the company’s historically humorous approach to design.

Rich Brilliant Willing Delta IV Pendant
The Delta family of lamps by Rich Brilliant Willing features fabric shades that are based on traditional box pleating techniques. The unique, yet familiar forms resemble rooftop vents, turbines or propulsion systems for some, and classical columns or glowing Japanese lanterns to others.
Fredericks & Mae Black & Multi-Color Matches
A matchless gift.  Wanna light up someone’s life? These little matches are cute-as-can-be in a cork-topped glass tube with a strike pad handily underneath—and make a brilliant gift. OK, we’ll stop.
