Inspiration ‘Flows’ Through These Reclaimed Wood Tables

The Pacific Northwest is home to many beautiful native species of hardwood that local artists and furniture makers have used to create wonderful pieces of natural art. Greg Klassen is one of these artists. He takes unique pieces of reclaimed wood slabs and transforms them into stunning tables that exploit the natural contours of the wood grain. He embeds pieces of cut glass that fit snugly into gaps in the wood resulting in what appear to be rivers flowing through the barren earth.

Klassen cuts, sands, and finishes the wood, but little else, resulting in a celebration of the inherent beauty in the imperfections we find in nature. The inlaid glass magnifies this notion, and speaks to the revitalization of once discarded natural resources.

The Opera Camper Brings High Design To Camping

Stowaway trailers like this aren’t exactly new, and for decades people have hitched them to their vehicles, roaming from state to state in search of adventure. For the most part, normal trailer designs remain largely uninspired. The Opera trailer on the other hand, is anything but normal. Design inspiration comes from the Sydney Opera House, and the company behind the product, Your Suite in Nature, built this luxury mobile “popup” home with both form and function in mind.

Tucked away, it looks like a normal camper.

A cannabis vape for the naturalist

If you stay up on the latest in cannabis vaporizers, you know there are some pretty high tech options out there today. From the Firefly to the Pax, and the new Davinci IQ, everything seems to be all about sleek curves, bluetooth connectivity, and technological advancement. What if you only care about actually vaporizing though? For the flip phone lovers among us, there’s still one great option out there. The Magic Flight Launch Box.

magic-flight-launch-box-reviewed

This simple, elegant vape brings a handcrafted style that contrasts the aforementioned vapes. It’s small, fitting easily in the palm of your hand, and very discreet looking. Basically it looks like something you might have made in shop class. And that’s OK because it’s a very elegant design, with quotes on the back. It uses a battery to complete the circuit and works with conduction heating.

Overall it takes some finesse to use. You need to pull slowly and get the timing just right, otherwise the herb can heat up too quickly and taste burnt, or not fast enough in which case it won’t vaporize.

iPod Speaker Dock Made From Supercar Exhaust Pipes

Automotive enthusiasts have strong feelings about which exhaust sounds best. Some prefer the throaty and thunderous American V8; others like the raspy V12 of a Ferrari, and still others may prefer the melodic sound of an inline six-cylinder from BMW. Regardless of your preference for any particular engine + exhaust combo, we can all probably agree that the fine examples from the Italian company ixoost sounds best of all (or at least our wives can!).

Each speaker dock comes fitted with a 8, 10, or 12-cylinder exhaust from a supercar. Conveniently located in Modena, Italy, home to the Ferrari factory, this project is the brainchild of Matteo Panini and Micro Pecorari. These speakers are custom made to order and include a working subwoofer, drivers, and full integration with iPhones. In case you’re wondering, the price comes in at around $6,500 and like many supercars, the supply is limited.

Amazon Just Made An Ottoman Pull Out Bed, and We’re Kinda Feeling It

Amazon has been on a roll with their own product lines, most notably the Echo, which is currently listening to millions of conversations across the country as you read this.

In a decidedly less creepy move, they just introduced a new furniture line called “Rivet“. Most of the pieces are actually quite impressive, but one stands out like a pink flamingo in a sea of crows. It’s a somewhat deceptively mindblowing product – an ottoman that pulls out to make a bed.

Pull out beds are nothing new. But the Rivet Fold is an ottoman that transforms into a convenient bed for your overnight guests. Ideal for smaller homes where you might not have an extra bedroom. And let’s face it, pull out couches are dated and usually funky. So next time a guest comes to crash at your pad, let them know they can sleep on the ottoman.

Who’s a good lamp? YOU ARE a good lamp!

When describing various pieces of furniture and accessories around your home, words like “chic” and “modern” might come into play, but chances are you don’t look at your bedside lamp and describe it as “adorable”. If you own a Luminose “puppy lamp” you might. Designed by Elizabeth Zimmerer and Márton Lente, both of whom love dogs and interior design, the lamp is probably the cutest thing we’ve seen recently. It’s sure to generate plenty of conversation as well, thanks to its clever design.
