Plus: Every Person in New York
Lamp or Lego, the Gugg always looks good. $55
Chip Paperclip Holder
Rodrigo Torres, for Alessi, had the clever notion of turning stored paper clips into bird feathers. $57
Not the cheapest solution for shoe storage, but this stainless steel rack, from which your Rocket Dogs seem to float, works well for space-challenged NY apartments.
We like the simplicity of these boldly graphic cotton totes from the UK. $16-$30, plus international shipping.
If you're of a certain age, 8-tracks are a punchline. If 8-tracks were before your time, you'll find humor in this plastic carryall. $10
Birds of a Feather Mobile
Mobiles have fallen out of favor in the past couple of decades, though this walnut veneer depiction of birds makes us wonder why. $82
Alyson Fox Dinnerware
We were fans of this artist/designer even before we saw these irresistible plates, bowls, and mugs. Shipping in April, $72/4-piece set
Flexible arm, touch-sensitive control, a mid-century vibe,
and a modest price = done. $34
This tajine/stoneware cross works upside-down and right-side up, depending on how much food you're cooking. $59
Giant Vintage Dominoes
Here's a throwback with no particular function except to add a fun touch. Approx. $15, plus international shipping
These beauties of porcelain and glass were entered into a Japanese competition by the artist Misa Tanaka and they're not for sale,
at least not yet. But they sure are pretty.
