T-shirtless? Time to get some Threadless.

7 Nov

Hankering after a tee that’s a bit smarter than the average? Then check out Threadless. It’s a brilliant US site where people submit their t-shirt designs, other people vote on them, and the designs with the most votes become real, but limited edition, t-shirts. Plus if a favourite t-shirt gets sold out, you can vote for it to be re-printed. Genius.

Yours for only $15 each (or sign up for their newsletter and they’ll let you know when they have their most bargainous $10 sales). A word of warning though, these t-shirts get addictive – I’ve lost count of how many I’ve bought!

Cardboard Rocket wendy/play house

30 Oct

Everyone knows that kids prefer boxes to their actual toys – but it’s not exactly interior design friendly to have a random cardboard box sitting about the house.
So why not give them a cardboard rocket to play in instead?

Made from recycled cardboard, the Paperpod Rocket from Nigel’s Eco Store adds
a bit of eco cool to play-time. Best of all, your kids (or you) can decorate it with paint, crayons, pens, glitter… whatever. And when they’re done with it, the Paperpod Rocket folds up flat for easy storage. Gets yours for £29.99 here.

"This is not a book" shelf… the Self Shelf

2 Oct

Here’s a conversation piece to make you smile… the Self Shelf.

By Nicole Van Schouwenburg and Irene Klinkenberg, the Self Shelf is a shelf that looks like a book. It’s attached to the wall using the supplied bracket and will ‘invisibly’ support your favourite books. Ideal if you’re into witty, minimalistic design.

The only giveaway that all is not what it seems: the title. ‘Ceci n’est pas un livre’ means ‘this is not a book’ in French. (And, of course, the author’s name: S.E.L.F. Shelf.) Get yours from Twenty Twenty One.

Uber Cool Mug Tree

27 Sep

Yes, I know this sounds like a contradiction. Uber cool and mug tree. But trust me this one is pretty special. For a start, this is an actual tree (made of powder coated steel). Then it has the pear shaped coasters – which slot neatly into the cutouts that hold the mugs. And then there’s the squirrel. Who doesn’t love squirrels? Only problem is that your kitchen may suffer a sudden lack of coolness by comparison. Set includes the Mug Tree, 4 fruit coasters and 4 mugs. Buy yours at Not On The Highstreet.  Uber Cool Mug Tree

Make/Shift Shelves by Peter Marigold

25 Sep

Here’s one to get them talking. Make/Shift – a genius idea for indecisive storage from Peter Marigold.

It’s a shelving system with individual wedges that you put together in the shape you want. (You can make them fill a space or have them freestanding.) Then when you get tired of it, you can shift them and make something else. Hence the name Make/Shift.

Made from a foam-like substance called ARPRO, they’re available in black, white and pink. Get your Make/Shift from Movisi.
