Newton Vineyard, an eco-conscious vineyard in the Napa Valley, takes part in an annual Eco-Chic collaboration. This year they got together with contemporary American designers Bruce and Stephanie Tharp to create the Puzzle Tray. The Puzzle Tray is a must-have for any connoisseur of fine wines who appreciates design and has concern for the environment. The limited-edition wine tray, of which 112 will be produced, is made from FSC certified walnut wood, numbered and imprinted with the artists’ insignia. The asymmetrical, intersecting lines on the tray’s top (and the number 112) are inspired by the division of the winery’s 112 vineyard blocks. And the removable coasters/trays are reminiscent of a Read More
Tax refunds are on their way and the wife wants a dining room table; you want a pool table. FusionTable features both… dilemma solved. These modern dining tables convert into a pool table with minimal effort. Simply remove the table tops and activate the spring assisted Easy-Lift system and you’re ready to go in a matter of seconds. But where are the pockets you ask? Using hi-tech nylon stretch cloth with memory, the pockets stretch out when they collect balls, and revert back to their original hiding position after the game. Dinner is served, the women are happy and the boys are entertained.

For those of you who don’t know, Dexter is a Showtime TV show in which Dexter Morgan leads a double life, working for the Miami Metro Police Department while also killing bad guys who slip through the justice system. The coasters even come in a wooden treasure box engraved Read More

A perfectly lovely, all-white room is ruined either by overenthusiastic wine pouring or an errant elbow sending the bottle crashing down below.

Its rubber seal and stopper fits almost any sized bottle and keeps the contents fresh; it also helps to prevent those errant spills to your all white room. Even if you don’t drink, it also fits most oil, vinegar, and condiment bottles as well. If Read More
If you’re a wine snob, or just more sophisticated than the rest of us, you know wine only lasts about 3 days after opening. As oxidation sets in, the aroma will change, tastes will subside, and eventually the wine will go bad. Yeah, we had to look that up to sound a bit more intelligent than we truly are. Moving on… Fear not. New York based designer George Lee had a dream that one day all men would drink good wine. His solution? A Date With Wine – a wine stopper with three twistable date rings to remind you of the Read More
