Milk Crates are one of the wonders of the 20th century, from carting vinyl to creating bookshelves, these polyethylene wonders are certainly versatile if not a little hiddeous. Page Thirty Three has taken the galactically accepted form of the humble bottle crate and turned it into something übercool. Aptly named, The Wooden Milk Crate is now officially on my want-it-list!
Page Thirty Three descibes this wonder: as being used for seats, shelves, side tables and storage units. The Page Thirty Three wooden milk crates cross pollinate the functionality and simplicity of the ordinary milk crate with a crafted wooden finish. The crates interlock vertically to stack as storage; they rest evenly on top of each other when on their side, making prefect shelves, and are easily stable enough to flip and use as seats. OH AND IT’S MADE IN AUSTRALIA!
Dimensions: 330mm x 330mm x 330 mm/ 13 inches x 13 inches x 13 inches

Being lucky enough to own a couple of these übercool pieces has been one of my everyday joys, no matter what the outside world has thrown at me, walking into a room with B&B instantly puts a relieved smile on my face. Read the full article »»»»
Our good buddies at Inhabitant have got a superlative post on our favorite Swedish eco hotel, Treehotel. The übercool hotel has a new addition to their amazing selection of high flying rooms, and it’s shaped like a giant flying saucer! A UFO recently landed in the forests of the Treehotel letting guests imagine they were abducted for a night. Prefabricated from a lightweight composite material, the UFO is suspended in the trees and is sustainably built just like all of the other rooms. For $625 a night, you and a friend can kick back in your very own UFO, check out the aurora borealis and maybe even have your own sighting. READ MORE
