  • World Time Clock

    World-time-clock

    The best designers take elaborate concepts and express them simply. This clock makes me want to find Charlotte Van Der Waals so I can pet her pretty, pretty brain. To read the time in a particular time zone, you just roll the World Time Clock until the correct city is on top. (Each city represents one of the 24 global time zones.) Easy as pie, even with jet lag and a mean mini-bottle hangover.

  • Big Dreams Quilt

    Big-dreams-quilt

    ON SALE I’m so sick of $400 duvet covers. If I’m throwing down some serious cash, I want something with heft, you know? This quilt is hand-stitched with red thread. It would work equally well in a chic modern loft or a kitschy mountain cabin. When it gets dirty, you can throw it in the machine, so you can let the kids drag it wherever. (Unlike the $400 duvet.)

  • Lumen

    Lumen

    VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT GUIDE The best mood lighting money can buy. Lumen is a stainless steel “shadow projector,” which is fancy talk for a little metal tree illuminated by an oil lamp. Still, the result is awful purty. The shadow gets larger the farther you move it from the wall.

  • Mental Floss Magazine

    Mental-floss-magazine

    Awhile ago, we linked to the Mental Floss book, saying that the Mental Floss team makes “art, literature, and science accessible without being condescending.” The magazine is the same thing, but you get it every two months. Fun reading for smart people, and we do love smart people.
