Welcome to Window Shopping, a weekly exercise in lusting over home products we want in our homes right the hell now. This week: a slim koozie clearly made with a specific boozy drink in mind, repurposed science beakers and more.
At first, I didn't care for Inside Weather's new modular headrest. How often would one need to mess around with the layout? It dawned to me that merely the ability to switch up the headboard layout was the selling point. Buyers can configure the Tetris-style panels to be as minimal or as bold as they please. Hell, fashion your headboard to actually look like a game of Tetris. Available in over 100 fabrics, the headboard might be the only thing you need to totally refresh your bedroom situation.
I first heard about La Buvette, a Paris-based natural wine store and café, in an episode of Action Bronson's Munchies Youtube series "From Paris with Love." I thought the intimate little wine hangout was the coolest place to be with shelves lined with eccentric natty wine labels and dangling cured meats in the window. Now, La Buvette's owner Camille Fourmont, along with author Kate Leahy, is letting non-Parisians bring a piece of La Buvette to wherever they live (sans the wine, food and great company). Fourmont offers notes on how she sources wine for her shop, 50 recipes to accompany your wine and other tips for recreating the chill vibes of a Paris' chillest café at home.
Listen, we all know what kind of can this thing is built for, and it's the memeable drink that goes: "Ain't no laws when you're drinking Claws." (Please drink responsibly and only consume alcoholic beverages if you're of legal drinking age wherever you are.) Like the original Arctican, this koozie keeps drinks cold for up to three hours, prevents condensation and has a freezable, twist-on base for peak chill.
We fawn over most things from Aesop. They make some of the best-smelling and effective grooming products around. The Australian skincare brand's latest bottle of goop is the Citrus Melange Body Cleanser, a low-foaming gel body wash that smells like zippy grapefruit and other citrus fruit. You better believe this is where our Tax Day refunds are going.
Hender Scheme is known for its handmade leather replicas of classic shoes such as the Air Jordan 4 and Vans Slip-Ons. The Japanese brand also fashions its supple and beautiful leather into functional home good pieces. Its newest collection is a line of glass beakers and petri dishes wrapped in its signature vegetable-tanned leather. Hario, the brand behind the V60 coffee dripper, designed the glass beakers, and this line, called "Science Vases," gives a mundane lab tool a new function to hold something beautiful.
If you're still hanging on to loose storage containers missing their lids, GIR's stretchy covers will give them a new life. Coming in six sizes to accommodate all your orphaned containers, the covers are dishwasher safe and leak proof. So drop the plastic wrap, and save a few turtles by buying and reusing these covers meal after meal. Check out the rectangular covers for your family-sized casseroles, too.
There's a new cool kid ice cream brand and it's way better than your standard grocery store fare. Marco Sweets & Spices is a new venture from a number of veterans from the food and drinks industry. With flavors ranging from Thai Coco-Lime to Vanilla Chai, Marco uses spices sourced from Brooklyn Spice Company. These pints are pricier than your Ben & Jerry's as Marco is more in line with a brand like Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, another craft ice cream producer. The quality of ingredients and unique flavors make these pints my go-to sweet treat for the summer.
