100% Trays are the latest accessory from the modern furnishings maker Blu Dot. Sold in sets of three, the trays are ready for keys, jewelry, sunglasses, or barware. The colorful, powder-coated steel trays are perfect for nesting or can be used separately. Just don’t serve canapés directly on them as they are not food-safe. The blue tray measures 14.7 square inches, the white is 9.7 square inches, and the lavender measures 5.8 square inches. $79.00 All images courtesy of Blu Dot.
In May, the Minneapolis-based design collaborative Blu Dot added its first collection of rugs to the company’s line of modern furnishings. Cush and Dash are both made of New Zealand wool with a cotton canvas backing; Cush is twisted to create a thick, pillowy shag and Dash has the texture of a chunky braid. Last Newspaper, made of recycled newspaper wrapped in cotton, gives me one more reason to hope that print news survives. Both Cush and Dash come in 6’x9′, 9’x9′, and 9’x12′ sizes; Last Newspaper in 4’x6′, 6’x9′, and 9’x9′ sizes. Prices range from $999 to $1799 for Cush, $749 to $1499 for Dash, and $149 to $399 for Last Newspaper.
