Pillows You Can Write On by Veinticuatrodientes

October 29, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Note Me Pillows by Veinticuatrodientes are pillows you can write on. Messages can be erased by running the pillow under cold water. At our house the pillow would say “Please don’t sit here until the dog has been walked. I love you and you’re cute.” (via mocoloco)

The Aakkoset shelf (aakkoset = alphabet in Finnish) by Finland-based Lincoln Kayiwa comes in 8 different colors. Though it might be slightly out of reach for the typical IKEA-going crowd at $21,000.

NY Store Kiosk Sources Everyday Treasures from Japan

October 22, 2010

Christopher Jobson

I stumbled onto Kiosk when doing research for the minimalist bottle openers post a few weeks ago. The folks who run this NY-based store trek far and wide to places like Sweden, Finland, or Hong Kong and pick up tons of funky stuff that you’ve probably never seen before. Some things are quirky, some utilitarian, others just decorative and fun. The spoils from their second journey to Japan went online last night.
