We have added several new brands to our site that we are very excited to share with you! Today we’re introducing Nambé. Nambé is a company that has been combining art and function since 1951. They design their pieces with timelessness in mind. If you’re ever looking for a housewarming, wedding, holiday or birthday gift for a modernist, you don’t have to look any further than Namba. From sculptural metal-plated frames to flatware, platters to wine chillers, and nativities to menorahs, there’s a beautifully handcrafted gift for every modern fan on your list. Of course, feel no shame in treating yourself — you’ll enjoy your Nambé forever and pass it along as an heirloom. Here’s just a small sampling to whet your appetite.


Nambé Cradle Salt Pepper Shakers. Opposites attract. Acacia wood and metal make a lovely pair. See, I told you Nambé pieces make for great wedding gifts!


Nambé Jazz Kettle. This piece is a great example of how Nambé’s products can fit into kitchens from traditional to ultra-contemporary. It’s beautiful lines are classic, its mix of materials is modern at its best.

Nambé Blend Bar Board with Knife. Acacia wood and stainless steel are a gorgeous combination, and the curved niche for the cutting knife is such a clever touch. Keep this on the bar to slice up your limes at G&T time.


Nambé Curvo Colander. We had no idea a colander could be so sexy before we saw this one. You won’t want to stash it away in a cabinet when it’s not in use, but rather will wind up showing it off on display somewhere.

Nambé Harmony 3 Piece Salad Set. The gorgeous curves and elegant simplicity of this bowl and tongs make it a set that will never go out of style.


Nambé Globe Candlestick Pair. There isn’t anything more romantic than candlelight, and the sinuous shape of these two candlesticks. While they appear as light as air they are sturdy and strong.

Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Have you figured out what you’re doing for Mom this year? Here are just a few of our favorites for a wide range of busy modern Moms.


Mom deserves  fashionable tote. Whether she’s out running errands or needs a sturdy bag to tote her laptop to work, the Flowie Lily Tote with black pecan trees and a leather bottom will chic up her outfit.


Planting with Mom is a fun way to spend some time together, and she’ll love having plants like basil, lavender, rosemary or whatever she chooses at her fingertips, artfully held by this modern rectangle planter, the Boskke Cube Triple.


Sometimes Mom just wants to cozy up and relax. Give her some “me time” for herself today with this gorgeous throw from Area, the Theo Blanket in Multi.


I don’t know about your Mom, but mine always had a phone that looked a lot like this wedged between her ear and her shoulder. While the Native Union Pop Bluetooth Phone  doesn’t have the curly phone wire, it will make modern technology feel more familiar.


If your Mom loves to spend time cooking in the kitchen, help her keep her clothes splatter free in a fashionable way with this Triangle Apron from Ferm Living.





Moms love some bling. We love the simple and modern look of this smaller circle within a larger one; you can infer your own symbolism but we think it’s perfect for Mother’s Day. The Inner Circle Necklace by Vanessa Gade Jewelry is made of hand-fabricated sterling silver with a 14K gold overlay.

It’s getting down to the wire for holiday gifts. Hanukkah starts today, and Christmas is just nine days away. If you’re as behind as we are with the shopping, you need some great gifts that seem tailored to your giftee and thoughtful, but in truth only take a few keystrokes to order. Here are some highlights from our Quick Ship selection. You must order by the end of the day today in order for these gifts (from the Quick Ship selection)  to arrive before December 25th!


Sempli Vaso Aqua ($50). This cool carafe is tipsy! Made of handblown lead-free crystal, it will throw your wine-swilling friends for a loop. It also makes a great hostess gift. (There’s more Sempli glassware available for quick ship, including flat-bottomed champagne flutes and beer glasses).

A Jump Start on Holiday Gifts — 5 Stylish Gifts Under $50


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky
1 Comment »

So I was pretty sure Halloween was yesterday or the day before (mostly because I still have candy left over, which is some sort of Halloween miracle), but then I went into CVS and saw a bunch of Santas and candy canes. Yes, the early start of holiday marketing is ridiculous, and I wonder how many years it will be before we start hearing Christmas music in August, but at the same time, things are about to get hectic. We’ll be planning out Thanksgiving meals, putting on that show, getting the house ready for guests, decorating, cooking and before we know it, we’ll be rushing out the night before to get gifts. Hanukkah is only 5 weeks away.

So that’s my little disclaimer on why we’re starting to talk holiday gifts already. Click, order, receive it, stash it, and you won’t have to do the night-before-rush. While you’re at it, create a gift registry for yourself.  Here are five of my favorite things Design Public has for under $50.

Kontextüre VIKTOR Toothbrush/Razor Holders in 18K Gold. Why? Because his is something that unless you giftee is Donald Trump, it’s something that they’d love but never buy for themselves. That’s what makes it such a treat, and that’s what gifts are all about.

Modern-twist Mark-Mat (with 4 markers). Why? Because it doesn’t matter how old you are, coloring your placemat while you wait for food is awesome. And when you’re hungry it’s hard to think of what to doodle, so having stuff to just mindlessly color in is good. You can wipe ‘em right down and do it all over again tomorrow. And yeah, these are also great for people who have actual children.

Boskke Cube — Triple. Why? Because you don’t find a fresh basil plant all moldy in a plastic bag in the bottom of a refrigerator drawer. It’s cool to be able to pick an herb right off your windowsill and throw it in your caprese. Plus, this has this awesome reserve watering system called Slo-Flo that means you can forget completely about watering it for almost a month and the plants will live. Check it out:

David Weeks Guthrie Cubebot. Why? Because Cubebot is awesome, and when you’re giftee is feeling stumped at his or her desk, playing with Cubebot is a nice way to de-stress and get unblocked. Plus he’s a great conversation starter. Clients will bond over Cubebot, coworkers and bosses will forget why they were mad when they walked in because Cubebot will distract them. Oh, and again, kiddos like Cubebot too.

Lotta Jansdotter Large Tray Set (of 2). Why? Because not only are these pretty (without being all girly), they are super handy, whether serving guests, schlepping dinner to the TV room, to use as a hard surface on a soft ottoman for drinks or corral accessories in a bathroom or guest room. They’ll also accessorize a room with a splash of graphic design.
