Here at Design Public, we’re gearing up for back to school and homework time with a series of guides to workstation products. What we’ve kept in mind with our curation is not only lamps that will function well and fit comfortably on a desk, but also designs that will not only appeal to your schoolkiddo but also to you. These task lamps are stylish, modern and will last you for a long time after your child has flown the nest. In fact, the only danger is that you’ll be tempted to hijack these for yourself.

You know it’s the best time of year to lounge and swing from side to side. The colorful nylon on the Fatboy Headdemock Hammock is easy to wipe down, and there’s no need to find two perfectly placed trees — it comes with a tubular base.

The Fatboy Buggle-Up Lounge Bag is a very versatile piece. You can prop it up to sit up straight, punch it around for a lounge or lay it flat as a relaxing mattress at naptime. The outdoor version has straps that make it easier to lug around and prop up. After you try a Buggle-Up, you’ll never want to sit on wrought iron outdoor furniture again.

Blu Dot Sale! Save 20% Through November 9th

DesignPublic.com

It’s that time of year — Blu Dot is 20% off now through November 9, 2014! If you’re not familiar with Blu Dot, chances are you’ve seen their work around and just didn’t know it. Two best friends, John Christakos and Maurice Blanks founded the Minnesota company in 1997 and it has taken the design world by storm ever since. Founded on the simple concept that Good Design Is Good, creating pieces that are practical and just plain cool.

If you haven’t checked them out, Blu Dot is one of the best companies to follow on Pinterest, as they apply their discerning eyes to all good design and share their creative collaborations. They also ran a two-week swap meet, where folks could propose trades for their products. Successful fans proposed trading Blu Dot products rendered in cross-stitch, carrying a Rook Table Lamp around Boston for a week and even learning a ukelele song to in turn, dedicate to them.

Plus, their product shots always inspire and awe. This one for their Nook Bed is one of our all-time faves:

Their Strut Tables remain one of the most popular items, whether in coffee table form as seen here, dining room table size or console table:

Here is the Rook Lamp one fan was willing to take everywhere with her for a week. Sounds worth it, but personally, I’d rather just save 20%:

No deer were harmed while photographing this shot, which includes a Strut Dining Table,  a 4-Drawer Shale Credenza, a Delta Rug and a couple of Real Good Chairs in Copper:

The best thing about the philosophy that Good Design Is Good is that these pieces are timeless. They aren’t something yo’ll chuck during a move, but rather, something you’ll hang on to and treasure for decades. Blu Dots pieces slip into not only contemporary and modern rooms; they work with traditional, transitional, collected and rustic rooms too.

You have a few weeks to ponder which pieces you’d like to invest in, but do it while you have a chance to save big.
