We wouldn’t mind sweeping duty as long as it meant working with this handcrafted, stainless steel hand dust pan and brush set.
Copper hangers? Yes, Please! For those who pride themselves on having a well-curated closet, you know all too well, that a properly organized one entails uniform hangers, preferably streamlined in make. These lightweight alternatives are just the thing!
We’re all for giving our spaces a colorful refresh in any shape or form. Disguising ugly wires and cords? Probably at the top of our list. Enter this ultra chic extension cord set featuring a dual tone cotton wrap and an oversized rubber mold wall plug for an accentuated detail that will elevate your space.
Seeing that they are present at nearly every tablescape, a style-focused set of salt and pepper shakers should probably go without saying. This appropriately-colored grinder set is minimal, chic, and scaled to perfection.
Mirrors are relatively easy to nail down and hardly ever really call for any revamps of sorts. This color block version changes all that. Produced in Copenhagen, this slim piece will fit right in within a variety of spaces and offers an incomparable style element no space should be without.
If there was one thing that our bar cart was missing, this vintage copper bottle opener would have to be it. Elegant, simple, and functionally sound, this refreshingly understated piece is an absolute must-have.
Hammers and screwdrivers aren’t commonly known to be the most attractive tools in the tool box. Then again, are any? This hammer (which also happens to be a 6-in-1 screwdriver set), challenges all preconceived notions of what a tool set should look like with its streamlined figure and mixed metal finish.
Here at domino, we have a real love for plants. And for every plant or potted floral, an equally captivating vessel is just as important, when it comes to the display. This octahedron ring planter comes in a reserved array of finishes, and somehow (quite subtly) manages to steal the spotlight from whatever its contents may be.
Consider this the lazy Susan, reinvented. Its marble composition will lend an effortlessly elegant touch to just about any surface, giving this classic staple a well-deserved and modern upgrade.
Uscoop Ice Cream Scoop, Umbra
The perfect scoop, more often than not, relies on a utensil built to properly take on the job. Constructed of heat-conducting aluminum, this scooper is made to work with ice cream that come at various levels of hardness (read no more spoons stuck in the ice).
For everything from cooking utensils to desktop accessories, a utensil cup is pretty much an essential for keeping clutter at bay. Contrary to its commonly solid counterpart, this gridded version ensures that all that you store remain easily accessible and thoroughly visible.
Every bar cart needs that one accent piece to tie the assorted contents of the board together. This ultra chic marble bottle opener takes practicality to a whole new level.
Most wall hooks often leave more to be desired, but these minimalist adaptations are certainly not the case. Constructed of solid brass, these hooks are entirely versatile enough to function in nearly every area of a home.
It’s safe to say that paper towel holders are probably better known for their functionality over their level of attractiveness. Until now. These colorful pieces come constructed of wood and feature a unique handle (positioned at the top) for easy movability.
Whether it be for coats and outdoor accessories, or merely an extension of your overflowing closet, a free-standing clothing rack should always err more towards a style-focused finish that doesn’t compromise on its functionality.
