TV pillow adds some test pattern to your living room

I don't particularly have a use for a pillow with a TV test pattern on it, but I wish I did because I love it. It's 100 percent cotton with a foam interior and made for snuggling while you're, you guessed it, in front of the TV. I saw it over at FunktionAlley where it's currently 20% off at £27if you're interested. It was designed by Henriette Hyldgaard.

Iceberg desk is cool enough to put in your office

Traditional desks tend to bore me, mostly because once you combine the need for a flat surface that can fit a chair under it and that also has storage space, your design options become limited. So kudos to whoever designed the Iceberg desk (which I found on of all places), because this beauty hits all the needs of a desk and still manages to pack in lots of style. Juxtaposing the hard white surfaces on the outside with walnut colored organic shapes on the inside is what does the trick. All for $749.99, which is not cheap but not outrageous either.

Wallflower Vases Are Like Little Trees For Your Walls

Gitta Gschwendtner's ceramic Wallflower vases are a fun way to do just what the name implies: add flowers to your walls. The idea is as elegant as it is simple. Put a bunch of Wallflower vases on your wall. Put a bunch of flowers in the vases. Step back and admire your handwork. These seem to be prototyps, not for sale.

Mr. Di Lamp Adds Some Baroque To Your Modern Style

Mr. Di is one of those cheeky lamp designs that combines two styles, in this case modern and baroque. It would fit into my nicely modern decor while bringing a bit of zing to things, and it could probably fit in with antique-laden decor if you wanted to try and modern things up, though I think it's more successful the other way. And it's only $251. If Mr. Di is on the large size for your space, try the Mrs. Di, which is a bit smaller.
