Colorblock rug. This rug would add a welcome punch of color to a small living room or entryway with a case of the drabs.
Limed-oak table with chrome-plated legs. Seattle home furnishings store Alchemy Collections has just started offering a few pieces online. This table reminds us of Thomas O’Brien’s design for New York’s 60 Thompson hotel.
Thirteen pieces of plastic sushi. Only in California (and Japan) can we imagine six-year-olds playing sushi bar. This set is perfect for kids with precocious palates. Or consider adding whimsy to your kitchen or dining room by making your own sushi clock.
Chicago El rollsign. We often see London and New York subway rollsigns, but rarely do we come across Chicago versions. If you’re feeling nostalgic for the city (but not its brutal weather), frame this colorful piece.
Lucite cocktail table. We can imagine lying prone on the sofa, reading the New York Times, and feeling too lazy to move a muscle. If you define luxury as never having to stretch to reach your coffee, this table is for you.
