This cool company in Brazil takes now banned giant banner signs and turns them into very cool bags! They also use leftover cotton to line the inside. I think they're about $40 each. Very cool. Reuse, reduce, recycle (in style!)

Alexander Taylor (a British dude) designed this really cool storage unit thing. It comes in different sizes and colors (white, green and grey). Unfortunately, this "Punch Unit" is made in England and the price is not "design within reach."
I wonder if one can make this themselves....it seems like if you could find a slightly perforated slab of wood somewhere, you could cut it into whatever size you wanted, and then just make a box-like thing? Ahh, heck! Who am I kidding? If you want to buy this, check out the Established & Sons website. But I warn you, it will cost you a pretty penny!!

This awesome lamp, called the May Day lamp, was designed by Konstantin Grcic for Flos. It's very cool and it only costs about $100. That's not too bad considering it's kind of waterproof and super, super functional. You can take it outside while you are out looking for burglars in your backyard, or if you are using it look inside the hood your car and going "hmmm." Or you can use it for inside the house, and move it from room to room whenever you want light in case you only have one light or something. See! The possibilities are endless!
I think you should run out and get one NOW! Run, don't walk!
Oh, and if you have a moment, check out this girl's flick pictures featuring the Mayday lamp! Very, ummm, interesting!!

Wow! OMG! Holy moly! This is the coolest thing I've seen in a looooong time. This French guy named Fabrice Berrux is my hero for designing the most clever medicine cabinet in the entire world! In the universe!! In the galaxy! I am still not over it. I might have to take a "time out" to regain my composure.
Anyway, the Pharmacie Box (by the French comapny Perigot) is truly breath-taking. I think my heart is still beating funny. The bad thing for us North Americans is that it's not available on this continent. Yes, one has to travel to Asia or Europe to acquire this beautiful mastery of bathroom accessories. Oh yeah, it's also pretty expensive at about $300.
If someone knows I am wrong and can figure out where to buy this in the U.S., I will definitely have the editors of Cheese Lovers International send you not one but TWO pounds of the secret favorite cheese of the editors.

If you have a fridge with a metal door, this is something cool for you! (My fridge is not made of steel, but could be put on other metal surfaces, such as an electrical panel). I love functional pieces like this, especially for those with limited storage space. Also, if you want a timer for you oven, but can't find one, just use this instead!

I've been on the lookout for a cool light for a looooong time. Either cool lights are too expensive or they are not cool enough. I was also interested in finding an environmentally friendly light at the same time. And guess what? I found one! Ask and you shall receive...Introducing the Capsule light!*
Available here: http://www.mioculture.com/store/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=3&idproduct=1
*The light was introduced a long time ago. It's just fun to say "introducing..."

There are times in life when one comes upon true genius. The editors of Cheese Lovers International had such a moment when stumbling upon a design by Nils Holger Moormann. Ordinarily we, being inherently verbose, would try to come up with words to describe this piece of truly remarkable furniture, but this time we will let the picture do the talking.

I've been trying to find this cool calendar by Enzo Mari for sale on the world wide web, but the only place I can find it is at this cool store in Paris called FR66 (which the editors of Cheese Lovers International have visited). This calendar is soo, like, totally awesome. If anyone can find it, let us know. As a show of appreciation, we will reward you with a 1/4 pound of our favorite cheese.
