    Wicker, Man

    Well, technically this chair is teak and rattan, but you know what I mean. I love the deco design. The price, not so much. Handwoven Boline Chair, $998 at Anthropologie.

    New School Desk

    This New School Desk from The Land of Nod is super sleek. It only has a 10.5″ clearance for your legs, so it wouldn’t work as a desk for everyone. I’d be tempted to use it as a display shelf or plant stand. $399.

    A Storage Bed with Style

    As a small-space dweller I have been considering a bed with built in storage for awhile. The problem is most storage beds either look like they belong in a dorm or a beach cottage in Nantucket. That’s why I was happy to see this slightly more modern option from Serena and Lilly. I love the Parson-style, but not so much the wicker baskets. I suppose they could be replaced with something a bit sleeker. Sadly, this frame is only available in twin and full ($800 & $900 respectively).

    Wanted: Vintage Gramophone

    I spotted this vintage Gramophone in one of the interiors over at sfgirlbybay and wondered exactly how hard it would be to get ahold of one. I love the look of that big brass bell.  I managed to find a fantastic working Edison Phonograph (which plays wax cylinders) over at Etsy for $675.

    If, like me, you don’t have any wax cylinders laying around there is also a more modern option.

    The iHorn works with your iPad or iPhone and harnesses the acoustics of the old radio horn via Bluetooth. $589 from Old Time Computer.

    DIY Hanging Table

    I can’t get over how gorgeous this DIY hanging table from Merry Thought is. The instructions are relatively simple. Except for tying the knot that holds the whole thing together. I’ve never had a talent for knots, so maybe it’s time to call on the nearest Boy Scout.

    Expedit Kitchen Storage Hack

    I love a good Ikea hack and this is definitely one of the cooler – and simpler – ones I’ve seen lately. The folks over at Ikea Hackers to an Expidit shelf and added simple hinged doors to create a custom kitchen storage unit. Via Curbly.
