Part planter / part bench. Designed by Charles Constantine
“The Element planter series seeks to challenge the notion of what a planters role in the modern home environment can be. Rather than playing a supporting role, the Element series’ forward thinking design puts it in the forefront of any landscape project. The unique forms that were created for the series draw inspiration from ocean jettys, and are meant to inspire contemplation, and provoke conversation. For these reasons Element adds a modern yet familiar feeling to any project or garden.”

“The limited edition blanket designs are created by Val Kilmer and Liz Lake. These modern yet classic blankets are manufactured out of 82% virgin wool/18% cotton, by Pendleton Woolen Mills, renowned for weaving Native American blankets inspired by ancient designs and legends, for over a century. Only 250 blankets were produced in this exclusive series. Val’s signature is woven in the lower right hand corner of each blanket along with a commemorative label indicating the series number.”

In my family we have a tradition of trimming the tree with real bacon on Christmas eve. Then on Christmas morning we feast on dry, cold slices with our oatmeal and gravy. These’ll do though if you’re not into the real thing.

We’re not too hip on hardware, so we asked our resident expert to explain.
“First, it requires no power at all. Second the cuts are as accurate as you can get, and the kerf is less than 2mm.. You can’t cut off your fingers, and it makes virtually no noise. You could literally build an entire dining set in your apartment without anyone ever hearing you, with minimal sawdust to boot. ZAP”
