The Buzziskin 3D Tile
Recently nominated for Interior Design Magazine’s Best of Year Awards (BoY) as an Eco Product are the Buzziskin 3D Tiles. Not unlike their parent company by the name of Buzzispace, this brand new 3D tile infuses vibrant colors into a self-adhering, upcycled PET-waste product that brightens up an office space.

Mixed tape anyone?
Sanindusa’s Wc Care Shower Enclosures
Having just returned from a four-day Thanksgiving vacation subsidized—nay, wholly financed—by certain financially sound members of the extended family, I can certainly see how one becomes accustomed to a luxurious touch or two. And by this I don’t mean anything too extravagant, but it’s definitely nice to step into a glass-walled shower enclosure with functional features and an appealing aesthetic. Portugal-based manufacturer Sanindusa knows a thing or two about exactly that. The company professes a customer-oriented philosophy, developing products “to our customer’s needs” and “implementing innovative and quality solutions.” The Wc Care line of shower doors goes beyond the usual interpretations of this objective to offer enhanced features for people with limited mobility.

Ring of fire
Roll Rollfire to bring warmth to where you want it, ball bearings and gravity will keep the fuel tank horizontally level with the movement of the frame. Fueled with Bio-alcohol, it burns without smoke, residue or odor. Producing only water vapor and carbon dioxide as a combustion by-product, so a vented chimney isn't needed.
Walnut Wood Tape Cutter
I LOVE this -- very Mad Men retro office gear!
3D Recycled Wallpaper
Can't commit to a paint color (or, if you're a renter, the landlord won't allow you to)? Jaime Salm’s new Paperforms are a three-dimensional textured wall panel that add both color and texture to a room. The panels are 12x12, and can be attached with double stick tape or more permanently with wallpaper paste. Paperforms come in a few different designs and colors which are whimsical as well as geometrical, adding an air of sophistication to the potentially quirky wall coverings. The colors are bright or neutral, the neutrals being my favorites as they emphasize the three-dimensional nature of the panels through shadow.
*Paperforms are made from 100% post and pre-consumer waste paper, which makes them affordable as well as environmentally friendly.
