Now that we all carry a camera everywhere we go, we've never taken as many great photos. Yet getting those photos from your camera or phone and onto your wall remains kind of a pain. Saw & Mitre aims to make it easy, with museum-quality frames that are designed to be reused over and over. They're made by hand in Virginia from Vermont-sourced hardwoods, filled with high-grade matting, and for each one you buy, they plant a tree. You can order a frame by itself or use their Print & Frame service that delivers your image preinstalled in the frame of your choosing, and when it's time to replace the image, you can print one yourself or order an easy-mount replacement print that makes it even easier to switch out.

Holding a piece of concrete doesn't sound particularly comfortable. Once you pick up the Contour Concrete Sketch Pencil, though, you understand. Its concrete construction and carefully contoured body provide a grip and heft that are ideal for drawing, while a pencil sharpener placed in the end gives you one less thing to carry around. Equipped with 5.5mm lead, and crafted from concrete and nickel-plated brass.
Debuted in 1938 — when it was known as the BKF Chair, after its designers Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari Hardoy — this time-tested sling has appeared everywhere from MoMA to college dorms. The Parabellum Butterfly Chair takes the design and updates it with premium materials, including free-range bison leather, powder-coated metal frames, and automotive vinyl backing. Available in pumpkin or black with a copper plated metallic or black base.
Buying beautiful plants is easy. Keeping them that way is not. Unless you have a Tableau Automatic Plant Watering Tray. This Dutch-designed system uses a wet-dry cycle to irrigate your plants in the same manner as nature. Just fill the reservoir, place it on the base, and relax for the next month as your plants decide how much to drink, in effect watering themselves. Of course, none of this does any good if it looks like a lab experiment, which is why they've made it as easy on the eyes as it is to maintain.
