Up Balloon Coffee Table


It’s never a bad thing to add a bit of whimsy to your living space. Sadly that often requires having a substantial amount of disposable income, and the Up Balloon Coffee Table by UK designer Christopher Duffy is no exception. It’ll set you back a pretty hefty £7,800 (or about $11,627USD). Made from toughened glass, metal resin composite, and toughened steel rods, the table looks like a bunch of balloons supporting a glass top. It plays with the illusion of lightness, of levitation and buoyancy; a glass top that weighs several pounds is being supported by what appears to be lighter-than-air balloons. It’s a conversation piece measuring 47 inches across by 19 inches high.

You guys seem to be into tea, and tea infusers. Good for you, really. Good for you. We like them too! So how about this cute Brew Whale Tea Infuser? It’s made from silicone, will plunge to the depths of your tea cup and stay submerged for as long as you want. When your tea is steeped enough, pull on the handle and help the little whale breach the surface. It’s $14.

Nessie Ladle Looks Perfect In A Lake Of Soup


What better way to get your kid interested in eating your lobster bisque than by presenting it to him with the Loch Ness monster swimming in the pot? This ladle comes with tiny feet that let the whole thing stand up at the bottom, with Nessie’s head whimsically sticking out. It’s a cool way to spend $16.

Semi-rigid Cubic Rubber Bands


These are sort of neat. They’re rubber bands shaped like a wireframe cube. They keep their shape, but of course they stretch since they’re rubber bands. They’re easy to find in a drawer, and we suppose that’s it as far as their advantages are concerned. And here come the disadvantages, or rather the disadvantage: it’s $10 for 3! They’re 20mm per side, if you must know, though to be honest if you end up buying these we have something to tell you: you have too much disposable income!

Floating Ripple Vase


A little whimsical, marginally useful yet definitely eye catching, the Floating Ripple Vase will accept one flower. You can then set that flower afloat in any container, giving the impression that it made a ripple, a ripple which then froze in time. Or something. We came in last at the Prose Competition, which is a made-up contest. We made it up in an effort to emphasize how much we can suck at writing sometimes. But hey, you’re not here for the prose, you’re here for the goods. This one will set you back $22, although it’s sold out right now.
