Nice legs catch your attention – whether you’re talking wine, women or these beautiful oak barstools from Vinoture. Roughly elegant, the Prima barstools are handcrafted from pieces of real, wine-stained oak casks & other recycled components, making them truly one-of-a-kind. And depending on your taste in legs, they’re available in custom heights from 29” up.
This light rocks. Tap the real-life drum and this rock-inspired light turns on. Tap it again and it turns off. Play Led Zeppelin’s Moby Dick and it’ll be like an out of control strobe light. The Moby Dick part is a joke. Made from a real snare & drum hardware, this luminescence is handmade to order in New Zealand by the band from 326 Design Collective.
You can stick your fingers (or other things on a dare) right into the blades of this fan and it won’t even hurt. The Propello desktop fan features blades made of natural rubber – so it needs no guard. The clean, pressure cast-aluminum body gives it a sleek, retro look making staying cool look cool. It is also silent, perfect for the desk.
Not the inflatable party palace you want to order for Junior’s birthday. The Inflatable Pub is the place for the adults to play. Available in various sizes – from the massive corporate-event ready Hogshead model, to the cozy bachelor-party sized Firkin – these are perfect party playhouses where full-grown adults can behave like idiots and even fall down without getting hurt. If you squint your eyes a little, it even looks like Oktoberfest.
It’s the Garden Zombie: a life-size, resin sculpture that will freak out the neighbors and dogs on your cul de sac. Just drop it in the mulch and watch the UPS man lose it. But, what’s really creepy is the way it reminds you of that one chick from Spring Break. The one your friends called the Daytona vampire.
If you have a house party at your place, this will get broken or at least torn out of the socket by its 15-ft cord. But that’s to be expected, it looks exactly like a classic rock-n-roll microphone. Which, for the record, is a Shure SM58. Anyway…this unique pendant light holds a soft 6-watt bulb & is made of cherry wood veneer with metal mesh over the bulb.
This keyholder is proof almost anything is reusable. Made from recycled auto seatbelt hardware, the Buckle Up Key Holder keeps keys organized, while looking pretty cool hanging on the wall. We think that’s just nifty. Using the word nifty is further proof recycling works with almost everything…even outdated slang adjectives from the 1950s.
After all the old vinyl is auctioned off on eBay, there’s at least one practical use for an obsolete 80s turntable. Brought back to life through the magic of recycling, this Technics turntable (complete with Heart record) makes a sharp wall clock telling time perfectly. No matter how long it plays, you won’t have to flip it over to keep the day going. Well…not until the single C battery wears out anyway.
It looks like an appliance from the Jetson’s kitchen or a fragment UFO part…maybe part of a hotrod motor from the 50s. But, no. It’s actually a Kees van der Westen ‘Speedster’ Espresso Coffee Machine. These Dutch masters of fine coffee-making machinery are known not just for quality brews – but inspired design. This machine is handmade to order in the Netherlands & requires professional installation. A true coffee geek connoisseur would expect nothing less.
Grilled cheese sandwiches rule. Making them sucks. Not now. Toast-It no-stick toaster bags let you cook a mean sandwich in the toaster without the risk of fire. In fact, there’s not even a mess. Reheat pizza slices, bacon, whatever fits in the bag, then in the toaster slot. 50-times reusable bags wipe clean after use. Challenge yourself to cook a whole meal in these bags, it’s totally possible. And consider this…no dishes to wash.
