Finishing Touches

This spring, flirt with the dark side (of our product line). Today we are launching new finishes for two of our wood products.

Smorgas, our wooden magnetic bulletin board, is now available in black, and it’s pretty sleek. As always, you can buy Smorgas as a set, or you can buy the pieces individually. (The black magnetic accessories look particularly great on the fridge.)

We also gave Keep Track a new finish. If you have darker wood in your home, this will be a sophisticated addition to your entryway or home office.

New Year, New Product

Keep Track is a coat rack and shelving system. It’s wall-mounted and adjustable. Metal pieces slide into and along a track in a solid block of alder wood. The smaller metal piece creates a hook, while the larger piece can be used in two different ways. Insert it one way, and it’s a small shelf for sunglasses or a phone; flip it around, and it’s a mail holder.

Configure Keep Track to fit your needs at an entryway, a desk, or wherever it fits in your home. We hope it will help you *ahem* keep track of your daily items.

There is a lot of stuff out there in the world, so it’s flattering when our products are featured on websites that we follow and love. It’s even nicer when they take extra time to dig deeper and interview us. We were happy to see Uncommon Goods blog about us and what makes us do what we do. Thanks, Marisa!

Switch It Up!

coat-rack-with-a-lot-of-hooks

We like hooks. They’re an easy way to keep things organized and accessible.

Problem is, we like hooks a little too much, and most wall-mounted coat racks have only four or five. We stack scarf on top of hat on top of jacket on those precious few hooks. The jacket at the bottom gets buried, forgotten, and sad.

So we came up with a solution, and today we’re excited to announce our newest product for the home, Switchboard. Switchboard is a wall-mounted coat rack with 25 (!) triangular wood hooks, just as wide as any other rack. Each hook rotates down when you need it and rests against the wall when you don’t.

Chop chop!

We know many of you have been cooking a lot this holiday season. And if you’re like us, you don’t have a good place to dry and store your cutting boards. Wedged behind the faucet? Awkwardly on a drying rack? Propped up in a cabinet?

Our best product ideas are born from a real need. We combined cutting board storage with a knife rack to make our newest kitchen product, Chops.
Chops consists of two solid wood cutting boards that magnetically connect to two sides of a knife rack. It’s a perfect place to store and dry your cutting boards. Its base keeps the stand stable, with or without cutting boards attached.

Set in Concrete

bridge

As designers, we can be terrible to shop for. We can’t buy anything without first giving a quick critique. Recently we were looking for a set of accessories to organize our studio’s desk, and we came up short. We are happy to say that we finally found one:
slabs-group

Introducing our latest *Workshop product, Slabs. Slabs are modular, low-lying desk accessories made with smooth concrete, hand sanded and sealed. There’s a tray for pins and clips, a pen stand, a tape dispenser, and a dock. Each piece is 4” x 4” and 1” tall.

We hope you have a wonderful holiday season. And if you’re looking for a gift for that exacting someone, think about a set of Slabs.

Best,
Rich and Avik

*Workshop products are made in the US. They are produced in small runs and individually numbered.
