Was it only a couple of weeks ago that we had our moment on the Martha Stewart Show? For our segment, we featured products from Remodelista's Domestic Science category, items that prove that functionality and beautiful design are not mutually exclusive (see a video at Martha Stewart).

Above: The utilitarian Klein Standard Straight Wall Bucket is $33.25 at J. Harlen Co.

Above: The Iris Hantverk Dustpan and Broom, powder-coated steel dustpan with beech and horsehair brush; $52 at Kiosk (as Martha pointed out, it's always hard to find the dustpan in the closet, but not this one).

Above: Seletti's Underwear Dryer can be used for many purposes (drying wet gloves, for instance); $24 at Conran.

Above: The Swedish Handmade Wire Korbo Bucket is woven from rust-resistant, acid-proof steel wire; $200 at Canoe.

Above: The Marie Pi Expanding Laundry Hamper from Swid Design is available in natural or orange canvas; $210 from Emmo Home.


Above: The Simply Julia Long Bistro Apron is $58 at Ambatalia's Etsy shop; the Short Bistro Apron is $48; also available at Maison Reve in Mill Valley (we gave one to Martha).

Above: One of our favorite kitchen lighting solutions is the versatile Tolomeo Clip Spot Light; $170 at Design Within Reach.

Above: A low-cost clip-light alternative is the FAS Clamp Spotlight for $9.99 at Ikea.

Above: Clark GFCI Plates; $8 each, or $68 for a 10-pack (see our earlier post 10 Easy Pieces: Switch-Plate Covers for more ideas).

Above: From the Italian company Boffi, the Minimal Toilet Roll Holder is $133 through Boffi showrooms.
