A handsome wood personal productivity center for your desk. Wood box folds out into a handy desk organizer set. Order HERE for $20.
Nearly every desk has the same problem: clutter. The Gather Desk Organizer is a well-made, well-designed way to keep all your essential tools handy while minimizing the mess.
It starts with a solid walnut or maple base, with four slots on top to hold its modular attachments. Those include a phone holder, trays, a pen holder, and a Post-It holder, and magnets in the base let you attach a coaster and even a headphone stand. You can easily move everything around to find a configuration that fits your needs, and even add a second base unit if you really have a lot of stuff.

Casa Brutale allows you to live on the edge! This visionary home would be perfect for a suave International spy, a super hero team or perhaps a cat stroking villain with hopes of world domination!
This concept property by OPA sits inside a cliff and is defined by three concrete walls that form the main living space. In order to let in plenty of light, the sea-facing front wall is all glass, as is the bottom of the roof-mounted swimming pool, creating undulating wave patterns as the sun shimmers through. If you want to build a house with a pool as the roof like this one then you should definitely line up an expert in roofing, waterproofing, and foundations like Staten Island Roofing. The house is accessed via a stairwell that runs from the top all the way to the glass-paneled balcony at the bottom, inviting guests to take in a little fresh air before entering the home.
The Transforming Micro Apartment makes the most of its meager 420 square feet by relying on a clever modular design.
Thanks to a sliding wall, hidden table, folding beds, and other neat tricks, this tiny New York apartment can sleep four comfortably, host a sit down dinner for ten, serve as two semi-separate offices, store bicycles, clothes, and more, all with a sleek, contemporary style that’d be the envy of many apartments multiple times its size.
As part of a special feature on Criterion’s Blu-ray and DVD editions of his film Cronos, director Guillermo del Toro leads a tour of his home offices, which he fondly dubs “Bleak House.”
Del Toro explains that the offices were created as a “compression chamber” so that he and his co-workers and collaborators could be “stimulated not just by what is called high art or fine art but by even the powerful images that come from toys or pop art or vivid imaginations. So everything in the house for me has equal importance, whether it’s a rubber toy or an anatomical model, whatever it is, it’s here to try to provoke a shock to the system, circulating the lifeblood of imagination, which I think is curiosity.”
His workspace is stuffed-to-the-gills with creepy figures and memorabilia!

Yankee Man Candles II ($18-28) has added the scent of crispy fried pork with their new Mmm, Bacon candle and the aroma of buttered popcorn with Movie Night.
You can still purchase grassy Riding Mower, the leathery First Down, and the musky Man Town from the original series.
I have some suggestions for Man Candles series III: the delightful bouquet of Fenway Park urinals, the perfumed air that emanates from a hockey equipment duffel bag and the lingering fragrance of sausage and pepper sandwich burps.
