Loving: Cina's USB Flash Drive

I love the delicate look of this USB flash drive from Cina at Supermarket HQ.  It looks like it was carved from ivory, but it's really made from a hard nylon material and was made by a 3D printer.

Loving: Eastvold Art Station

Now technically this is supposed to be an art station with storage from Eastvold Furniture at Exclusively Home, but I love it for just storage in general.  The entire thing is on wheels so you can roll it anywhere you want.  The top just lifts off, and one side is a chalkboard, the other is laminate that can be doodled on with dry erase markers.  I'd love to have these in my sewing area, and I'd keep one whole project in each and label them on the top.

Sitting on: The Fold Chair

The Fold Chair from Pie Studio at SupermarketHQ almost looks like someone took a curlicue of bamboo and made it into a chair.  I bet the seat has a little bit of springiness too since the back doesn't quite touch the bottom board.

Loving: Junior Cielo Crib

I love this Junior Cielo Crib from Simply Baby Furniture.  It's really simple, but you can't see any of the hardware on it.  And it almost has the look like you made it yourself.

Loving: Case Study High Boy Dresser

I love how simple but different this High Boy Dresser from Modernica is.   It's just your basic stack of drawers without any fancy cutouts or drawer pulls, but it almost looks like it's floating off the ground.  It also has a lip on the back, so that when you pull off all your jewelry or whatever, you don't have to worry about them getting knocked off the back.

Loving: Ice Candle Lantern

This Ice Candle Lantern from Dutch by Design is really cool.  You use the mould to make an ice cylinder and then you put a candle in the middle of it.  When you light the candle, it starts to illuminate all the patterns in the ice and melts the ice slowly, so the light doesn't just flicker, it changes as the ice thins out.

Loving: Metal Tiles

These Self-Adhesive Metal Tiles from Interior51 are really cool.  You can put them anywhere since you just have to peel off the backing and stick them like stickers.  Plus, they come in three different finishes so you can arrange them in a bunch of different patterns.

Loving: Upcycle Ottoman

This Upcycled Ottoman from Gus at 2Modern is really cool because each one is going to be different.  And it has a great mix of natural materials and bright colors that will stand out anywhere.

Loving: Brio Play Gym

This Brio Play Gym from Graham and Green is something that I've been looking for and it's hard to find.  It's bright and playful, but a lot less crazy and cluttered than most play gyms.  And who doesn't love colorful, flying bunnies.

Loving: Black and Blum Desk Organizer

I love this desk organizer from Black and Blum at Emmo Home.  It's something that doesn't really stand out like those big plastic organizers, but it's just as functional.  Of course I would probably end up putting a lot of pens in my real coffee cup on accident.

Loving: Dress-Up Mirror

I love this Dress-Up Mirror from Designs Abroad.  It would go perfectly in a little girl's room of course, but it would be really cute to have in a walk-in closet or a bedroom since sometimes getting ready feels just like adult dress-up.

Loving: Empire Wall Frame

This Empire Wall Frame from Umbra is a really neat idea.  Sadly, I don't really have anywhere to put them (most of my corners go in, not out) but maybe in the next house.

Loving: Candeloo LED Lamps

I love these Candeloo Lamps from Vessel at Emmo Home.  They're perfect for little kids since they use LEDs instead of a normal light bulb, so they can pick them up and carry them to the bathroom at night without burning themselves.  Plus, they look like little weird bunny slugs!

Loving: Olimpo Lounge Seater

This Olimpo Lounger from Spacify is perfect for summer.  I could probably spend all day on this thing with a book, a pitcher of lemonade, and gallon of sunblock.

Loving: Perpetual Desk Calendar

My mom used to have one of these Perpetual Desk Calendar.  I'm pretty sure she actually tried to use it to keep track of the date, but I would just keep flipping it over and over to hear the little number disks slide around.  I may have to just get this one from Three Potato Four, because they are just that awesome.

Sleeping on: Modu-licious Bed

I like the idea of using the space under the bed as storage, but my attempts have always been those giant Rubbermaid bins that fill up, don't close, and eventually break.  But this Modu-licious bed from Blu Dot at Smart Furniture is a much better use of that space, and looks much nicer.  Plus, six smaller drawers are probably much easier to organize with than two giant bins.  And, if there is no under the bed space, the silly cat can't hide under there every time someone new comes over.

Loving: Sabuda Pop-up Blossom Note Cards

I would love to send out these Blossom Note Cards from the MoMA Store.  These would make great invitations to a garden party.
