Tickled Pink…and White

“There has been a great diversity of opinion on the subject, but the generally accepted rule is pink for the boy and blue for the girl. The reason is that pink being a more decided and stronger color is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.”

-Ladies Home Journal, 1918

At ILOVEHANDLES, we think pink can be both for girls and for boys… just like our minimalist smartphone mount, Barnacle. Today, after a number of your requests, we’re adding two new colors to the Barnacle family, a strong pink and an uncontroversial white.

Pick your favorite colors, or buy a set!

Beyond Measure

Over two years ago, we released the Wrist Ruler, and it has since taken on a life of its own. Just look at this stylish chap, or these custom red rulers for a store in Brooklyn, or this special moment.

Today, we want to let you know about some additions to the Wrist Ruler family: Wrist Ruler is now available in black (with a brass closure) and natural!

We also created another leather tool, the Cord Protractor. First, use it as a cable keeper; open it up, and you can use it to measure angles.

We think these new products really *ahem* measure up. Enjoy!

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.
