Duncan Shotton Design Studio
Colour O'Clock $38
There's something soothing about the idea of telling time by color, which is the stress-relieving promise Colour O'Clock makes. As the seconds, minutes and hours tick by, the minimalist white clock cycles through the color spectrum with an ever-changing dot.
Diamond Light $50
Sometimes it's the slightest hack to the norm that can have a profound effect on your sense of aesthetics. Case in point is Eric Therner's diamond light, which shifts the common light bulb silhouette ever so slightly to become something simply exquisite.
Wool Dryer Balls $36+
Herbalist Brooke Petry throws a great deal of charm and passion into the unlikely trade of making all-natural woolen dryer balls. The idea behind the balls is to replace the chemical effect of dryer sheets with a reusable alternative. Devotees swear by their power to soften clothes, remove static and reduce drying time for energy efficiency.
I Love to Kick Foosball Table $85
World Cup only comes once every four years, but you can the energy alive everyday with a competitive (or friendly) game of foosball.

Danh Vō Baggu Tote $40
Vietnam-born Danish artist Danh Vō is known for his conceptually driven sculptures. Often incorporating political or historical references, Vo’s work—like this limited edition Baggu tote for Marian Goodman Gallery—speaks to his exploration of the power of symbols through the subtle application of an American flag.

Water Tower Kit $28
One of the most visible and beloved fixtures of the NYC city skyline has been condensed for at-home enjoyment in a charming little kit. Kids ages 6+ and, we suspect, many adults, will delight in recreating the iconic water tower as a tabletop cardboard sculpture. Pick from two sizes, mini or mega, and leave them blank and simple, or paint and tag as you wish.
Playing for the Benefit of the Band $65
Lee Friedlander's seminole 1992 monograph, "The Jazz People of New Orleans, Playing for the Benefit of the Band," has been re-released in an expanded edition available through Fraenkel Gallery. With more than 200 photographs in the new version, some published for the first time, the collection captures jazz greats and everyday players on their home turf, as well as the city's famed second line parades, between 1957 and 1982.
Jeroen van Leur
B Light $62
An iconic invention gets a counterintuitive nod from Dutch designer Jeroen van Leun with his B Light candle, a wax version of the classic lightbulb. Cast in natural beeswax, the B comes in a set of three.
Low Hanging Fruit Tee $35
Sibling duo KOIVU calls their approach "youthful surrealism" but there's doubting this is solid design that's pretty damn funny. Their tongue-in-cheek humor and graphic knack shines through in the Low-Hanging Fruit T-shirt, which paints a bright picture of an otherwise slightly dismal category.
Risograph Prints $50
Dutch artist and designer Sigrid Calon applies her knack for exuberant color to a series of cheerful, digitally printed risographs inspired by the patterns found in cross-stitch embroidery. Hang in a highly-trafficked space for a mesmerizing pop of pattern.
Oon Power Outlet $79
Oon is a handsome take on the multi-outlet power cord. With a playful yet unobtrusive aesthetic, the functional cord replaces the unsightly standard orange color commonly found under desks and behind appliances. Designed and manufactured in the USA by emerging designer David Okum, the flexible power cord uses wood, metal, plastic and woven fibers for a cord you'll actually want to show off.
