vintage scale wall hooks

I love it when you can hang a hook on the wall and even when there is nothing on it you still have something of visual interest up there. These early 20th century scale hooks are a fine example. Since they are cast brass reproductions they aren’t working scales, but I still think they’re pretty cool.

The set of 5 pieces is $69.95 and you can find them at Signals.


agape steel tub – modern rustic

Q: Why does this Vieques tub that looks like it is straight out of 1870’s Deadwood appeal so much to me? I half expect to see some gold miner dude in it, wearing grimy long johns with a back button flap, trying to scrub himself clean while he smokes a cigar.

agape_vieques_tub

A: Well, duh – it’s designed by Patricia Urquiola for agape, and she can do no wrong as I have previously mentioned. Love her style. This beast is made of two toned steel and has an optional teak backrest and shelf, which totally make this piece as I see it.

modern wine rack, vintage roots

Paying homage to the genesis of all wine, Danish designer Jakob Wagner has created a wine rack to resemble the twists and curves of grapevines.  A smart cantilevered style enables the stored bottles to do double duty as stylish sculpture, as they appear to float freely against the wall from a distance. The rack holds six bottles of assorted sizes and is offered in two styles: polished aluminum or synthetic black rubber over fiberglass.

Oh so minimal and stylish.
