Next-gen shelves

I was trolling Apartment Therapy today and came across a really interesting article on future shelving.

Aside from some interesting shapes theres really no way to upgrade or improve on shelves…or so I thought. Sung-Pil Hwang from the Nothing Design Group has created these prototypes which would plug into light sockets and not only emanate light but charge your different portable devices.

I think this is such a great design concept, they are not only chic in appearance but they are also very practical and functional. My boyfriend and I have a plethora of portable devices from gaming systems to ipods and they are always scattered about the house charging on various plugs. This shelf would be great to not only clean up that mess but provide storage for magazine, books, plants, etc all while looking very hip. Hopefully they will perfect this concept and get these on the market asap!

Dead plushie wall decorations

I was trolling around on ShanaLogic earlier today and came across the most amazing home decor ever.

Plush-kill Wall series

These handmade wall decorations are the perfect mix of adorable plushiness and redneck kitsch.

About this piece: The unicorn is extremely hard to hunt and kill (maybe it’s her rare powers that makes her such a challenge!). She can be attracted to malt liquor and magicians so if you can get both together at once, you’re sure to attract one!

Size: 12″ x 8″ wide wooden backing
Materials: Fleece, wood, felt, polyfil stuffing, trim, LOVE

Other animals include Spring Deer, Berrycorn, Bunny, Mouse and Ewe and cost about $80 each.

Tetris kitchen

Ive written about Tetris home geekery before (here and here) but I think Ive finally found the ultimate in Tetris domestic goodness. Behold….

Tetris Kitchen

Maybe this has been posted around the net before so pardon me if this is a late pass..but its new to me! Besides, something this awesome needs reposting. Inspired by the classic shapes of Tetris and the need for efficient clean space, designer June He created this geometric masterpiece. The kitchen is basically transformed into a jewelry box in which all the pieces pull out into place and hide away so it looks like a sleek tile wall when not in use.

The tiles could also be changed color wise to reflect whatever scheme you would like. I for one and such a fan of this because living in an urban area like San Francisco, space becomes a luxury…yet at the same time I am unwilling to give up a large kitchen in order to obtain more living room space. This design allows for both kitchen space and open room all with an effortlessly cool and minimalist appeal. Unfortunately this design is still in prototype, but when I hit the lottery and built my dream flat, you can bet my kitchen will look like this.

Is that a faucet or are you just happy to see me…

Ok lame I know…but when you say someting like “wow look at that faucet” or “that is an amazing faucet” it just kind of sort of ends up sounding like a pick up line in a weird wall. Well my friend Kaitlin pointed me in the direction of the most amazing bathroom faucet today.

Triflow Taps by Zaha Hadid

The movement and flow of water itself is the inspiration behind this gorgeous piece of bathroom sinkery. The tap, spout and body are a seamless and organic shape.

“Triflow’s taps feature a unique three-way technology that allows filtered water to be delivered through a dedicated waterway, separate from the hot and cold water streams. These two streams are controlled by the handle, while the filtered water is activated by a touch-sensitive button.”

All I can really say is…DO WANT!

Toilet Shark

I think Im just going to have to declare today to be Katie Day because shes giving me tons of great fodder for blogging. First her delicious breakfast casserole and now….toilet sharks.

These are decals that can be stuck on your toilet or window…a much nicer way to jazz up your potty if you arent down for granny style plush seat covers. Etsy seller post has a whole shop of fun funky toilet decals that you can purchase for about $15 including shipping. Heres a few of my favs…

Angry Toilet

Id be pissed to if I was getting shit and pissed on every day.

Toilet Chandelier

To create a classy shitter….this toilet needs a beaded toilet rug.

Toilet Flora

Im always a fan of bringing organic themes indoor.

Toilet Unicorn

Unicorn on a toilet….’nuff said.

Things I like but will never be able to buy

I was trolling around Generate Design pining and drooling over their home decor products so I thought I would share some of the most ridiculously awesome and ridiculously expensive products.

Ghost Tree Coat Rack

This is one of the most organic subtlety beautiful coat racks Ive ever seen. Its also has one of the most ridiculous price tags Ive ever seen at $1,999.00! I think I’ll save my money and chop down a birch tree instead.

Easy Chair

Remember those awesome stacking chairs we all use as school children? Yeah those were uncomfortable but totally sweet. Now imagine them in a rainbow of awesome colors….and priced at $549.00 each. I’ll stick to my fond memories thank you.

Index Chopping Board

Not only is this a chic and gorgeous design, but its incredibly practical and good sanitation! Chopping boards can easily soak up juices especially raw meat juice and no matter how much you wash you often can’t fully remove it. This product puts an end to nasty juice cross contamination…but for a hefty price of $79.00.

Tab A/B

I dont even smoke and I want this! Hell I’ll let my smoker friends smoke in my house just because this is the most gorgeous ash tray Ive ever seen! But design comes with a price….this one happens to be $89.00.

LTB Illuminated Sink

I’ve always wanted to rave in my bathroom….but I’ll have to stick with dumping glowsticks down the sink since Im not ready to drop $249.00 to rave on.

Play Table

This coffee table is basically one big slide puzzle with the empty space revealing one of 6 storage areas. Awesome in so many ways…but I wont be storing any money in this thing since it retails at $7,599.00.

I could go on for hours about the gorgeous ridiculously expensive things that I will never purchase from this site…but I have work to do and presents to wrap!

Edamame body pillow

Dear my boyfriend, friends and family,

Christmas is coming up and if you love me you will buy me this.

Edamame Body Pillow

Before I even clicked on the description of the pillow I thought “this is pointless unless it has little edamame pods you can pop out.”  Well my dreams where answered when I read the description

“Each pillow has 3 “soybean” pods filled with polyester fiberfill.”‘

Mmmm polyester fiberfill. I cant wait to snuggle up next to this and play with my perpetual edamame popper key chain.

By the way if you live in the Bay Area and love edamame make sure to stop by The Citrus Club. They have the most amazing garlic edamame….Im drooling on my keyboard just thinking about it! One day I’ll figure out the recipe and share it with you all….or just keep it to myself and eat garlic edamame until I pop.
