Going deep into Dutch design territory, Venka just sent us a great link to the "witty and poetic" Dutch By Design, an online shop out of England that sells exactly what it says it does.
Selling everything from couches and tables to clocks, tableware and accessories, Dutch By Design is a great tour through the fertile subculture that is Dutch design. There are designs by Moooi, Bert Jan Pot, Nicolette Brunklaus and many others, including - of course - Tord Boontje.
Prices suffer from the exchange rate and some items are not available online, but that shouldn't stop a phone call if your desperate. We particularly like the DIY clock ($40), the S side table (nfs online), the Lily Light ($650), and the Coathanger coat rack ($120). (Thanks, Venka!)
