Functional Art that Surprises and Delights

Life is too short for boring decor. Or gifts that don’t surprise, delight and sometimes frighten the receiver – like our signature Wall Tentacle and mustachioed Nose Eyeglass Stands.

Function, dysfunction, whimsy, animal life, body parts, exquisite craftsmanship: these are a few of our favorite things.

You can find our wares in unique boutiques around the world, including:
