…It’s Things Thursday: PAPPA*PHONE?

PAPPA*PHONE

Hulger’s PAPPA*PHONE brings a touch of class to the VoIP telephone.

Cut from a single solid piece of American walnut (so that the grain of the wood flows from the handset to the base), each PAPPA*PHONE is handmade by Furni, and also incorporates a piece of solid hand-polished brass into the design, as well as laser etched details.

Since it works with all VoIP services (Skype, iChat, GoogleTalk, Vonage, Yahoo, etc.) and is plug-and-play compatible with both the Mac and PC, it’s as easy to use as it is beautiful.

Maybe this VoIP thing has a chance after all…

…Richard Sajas does embroider-graffiti?

Embroider-Graffiti

With a bit of creative embroidery, Richard Saja turns ordinary Toile de Jouy print into something extraordinary.

Though TdJ print isn’t usually my style, I could definitely make a compromise for an embroider-graffitied piece like this. It’s subtle yet humorous, and you could keep it with other pieces of fancy furniture knowing that it’s got a surprise waiting for anyone that is willing to get close.

…You can make your own swan ice sculpture?

Swan Ice Sculpture

When I think of a fancy party table, I think of a fancy ice sculpture centerpiece, which is why this DIY Swan Ice Sculpture Kit is the perfect way to class up any party.

Simply fill it with water, toss it in the freezer, and wait.

In a few hours, you’ll have a centerpiece that is sure to impress any guest; though it’s going to be tough to explain how you carved the small details with a chainsaw.

Tip: To make the ice clear, just boil the water a few times:
