Tom Dixon Lamps
Tom Dixon Mirror Ball lamps: blown like bubble gum into a mould, these plastic spheres are metalised internally to give a mirror finish, which focuses the light from the bulb, projecting a soft, broad beam of light. The chrome look has the added benefit of making the exterior highly reflective: a refreshing alternative to the overwhelming orthodoxy of technical lighting.
The versatile Mirror Ball collection, designed by Tom Dixon, offers a lamp for every function: Mirror Balls hang in a voluptuous chandelier, sit on a stand to read from, or are scattered around the floor; the Mirror Blob sconces wash light over ceiling or floor; the Mini Mirror Ball is the perfect table lamp.
This is the most beautiful lighter that was ever created. It is made of sleek brushed aluminum and it is perfect for Kitchen, Fireplace, Food Warmers, Candles, BBQ, etc. It uses standard butane (which is not included but available from supermarkets, hardware stores, etc).

$100.00 Wallet for $24.99
Flash your cash with the Hundred Dollar Bill Wallet.
Stitching is always the first thing that rips in a wallet so it was designed without any parts or stitches. It is simply one single sheet of high tech tyvek folded to create this seamless design.
Tyvek feels like paper but it is actually made of thousands of long plastic fibers creating a surface that is both light weight and durable yet super thin and tear resistant. Tyvek is also water resistant and will protect against the humidity in your pocket which destroys leather.
There is a secret storage area you can use by pulling out the tucked in flaps from the ends, place your things inside and re close the flap back over to hide them.
The tucked in flaps also allow the wallet to expand with use gradually providing you with more room as needed (from 5 up to 25 credit cards). The tyvek will wear in and get soft but will not break. All these amazing properties will give you a wallet that is lightweight, super strong, long-lasting, and thin.
Made from 25% post-consumer recycled content, they are environmentally friendly and can be recycled. Also holds Euro currencies.
Allegro Modern Lighting Collection
Beautiful dramatic suspension lamps, perfect for a large space.
The Allegro group of lamps create an elegant, fascinating symphony in a suspended, almost magical equilibrium. Aluminum elements seem to flow into each other. As well as illuminating rooms with a pleasant effect of light and shade, the lamp has a hidden and slightly mobile nature. Oscillation makes the aluminum elements vibrate and emit a soft, magical sound. This "musicality" has inspired its names - Allegro ritmico, Allegro vivace and Allegro assai; three versions in different sizes and colors.
When used alone or in a group, Allegro is ideal for creating a visual focal point in any environment. It characterizes and enhances architecture, thanks to the complexity of its language and its interpretation of materials, shapes and volumes. It gives a diffused downwards light that reflects off the ceiling.

Airstream is an American Classic!
We love this beautiful new Basecamp which goes from Kitchen to Chill Pad to Toy Hauler in under 5 mintues!
Airstream has partnered with Nissan Design America (NDA) and Kelty outdoor products to produce a lightweight multi-purpose tent-trailer hybrid that blends the convenience of RV travel with the versatility o f car camping, 21st century style. This stylish trailer, designed to be both low cost and flexible, was envisioned as a springboard for outdoor adventures rather than a living room on wheels. Basecamp pays homage to Airstream's past, taking styling and content cues from the original "torpedo" trailer developed by a company founder Wally Byam in the 1930's. The attached tent extension, engineered by outdoor products company Kelty, provides a lightweight way to double the available living space, or a great way to store your gear.
If you are looking for something that you would expect to find in a museum, look no further.
The Kashiwado chair is a fabulous yet hard to find icon of modern design. Designed by Isamu Kenmochi for Tendo Japan in 1961. The Kashiwado chair was actually created for a famous Sumo wrestler named Kashiwado from that time. This chair is truly a work of art which takes several weeks to create. Craftsmen first cut out several blocks of the bottom roots of a Japanese cedar (Sugi). They carefully select the best wood with most tree-rings. The blocks are carved and layered on top of each other with a special process. The chair is polished and coated afterwards.
Material: polished cedar wood
