Hang-It-All limited edition with walnut spheres

Eames Hang-It-All

Can you improve on a design classic? Herman Miller are giving it a go with their limited edition of the Eames' iconic Hang-It-All design

Designed in 1953, the Hang-It-All was intended to encourage kids to hang up their colours, through its brightly coloured wooden spheres. This limited edition is definitely one for grown-ups then, as the coloured spheres have been replaced by a solid walnuts balls. The more somber look is reinforced by the black frame. 

I can't help thinking the make-over loses the original object's sense of fun somewhat but if you like the look, better snap one up soon as it's only going to be in production until early 2011. 

And better start saving too, as this edition will set you back $249.

Neutra house numbers

Neutra numbers 2

It's the finishing touches that count. So if you've invested time and energy created the perfect mid-century style interior, you may want to invest in these Neutra house numbers for its exterior. 

The Neutra stands for the renowned architect Richard Neutra. These numbers are a collaboration between his estate and Design Within Reach and replicate the 1930s originals that Neutra specified for use on the house he'd designed. They're made from weather and corrosion resistant aluminium so should be looking stylish for a good few more years to come. 

Expect to count the cost of these numbers though, as each one costs $40.80.
