Eames Splint circa 1942 on auction for another 3 days...

When I was out in San Francisco two months ago, I got to visit with Chris and Kari, the intrepid brains behind DWR's Tools for Living. They basically have a dream job: travel around the world and come back with the coolest design items you can find to fill a brand new store from a nationally known retailer...

>> DWR Tools for Living

Having completed the first part of their mission, DWR has opened two Tools for Living shops (NYC and LA), but Chris and Kari came back with a lot of stuff they couldn't fit into the stores, which I got to see spread out like fish on the top floor of DWR's offices.


Multitape masking tape in many colors

During their travels they spotted and purchased a bunch of one-off, vintage and hard to find items that didn't or couldn't make it into the store. These items are now being sold in a secret, viral way: via daily email auction for only five weeks. The email links to a page that is buried in their site. We pulled it out for you.

From November 10th to December 19th, one item a day is being released for sale. Items for sale range in price from $28 to $9,000. To find out about it you can click on the link above or sign up for their daily email. Some of this stuff is really cool and it's all worth checking out. Our favorite? Something that just went up - a rug made of huge wood threads by Christien Meindertsma (see below).
