I always get lost over at Wallpaper. Maybe because they have that whole ‘see this article and then another one will magically appear at the end’ thing. Thankfully, they share amazing makers and artists, like this post that showcases a ton of amazing rugs. A favorite? The ‘Untitled 01’ rug by Carsten Beck Nielsen. You can put the art on the wall and under your feet too. Who doesn’t wan that?  via Wallpaper
The science of scent is an intriguing field and The Nue Co. wants to bring that science close to home. Their scents are patented and are designed to help lift your mood, like Forest Lungs. Sounds interesting and worth a try. Who’s with me?  via The Nue Co.
Is it a bench or is it a shelf? That’s the question that came to mind when I found these stacking benches by by Shawn Maximo over at Tortuga. Inspired by inspired by 19th century Campaign furniture, these belted wonders are future classics. via Tortuga
If you haven’t discovered WorkOf, let the Single Button Stool by Yvonne Mouser, change that. This gorgeous and handcrafted stool is made from solid ash and features bentwood handles. It’s part of a quartet that sings beautifully together.  via WorkOf
Hasami Porcelain celebrates the time-honored tradition of Japanese craftsmanship. I’ve seen it in a few places online, but I knew I had to feature it when it showed up in the Design Anthology shop. It’s one of my favorite magazines and they have superb taste over there. via Design Anthology

Looking for an affordable and vegan desk pad? It took me some time to find the right one, but I’m glad I did. The Grovemade team always seems to know how to give the people what they want. Made from cork, linseed oil, pine rosin, wood flour and calcium carbonate, this linoleum pad has held up nicely. via Grovemade
