It’s not often that Facebook advertisements make me look twice but, in this case a simple little shelving system had me clicking away. With it’s minimalist design and endless configuration possibilities made possible by a few well thought out accessories the aptly named “shelf” by Artifox is ready to go to work out of the box. It will hold your books, plants, keys, electronics, and even your dreams because you can write on the damn thing. Familiar materials like maple, walnut, and steel are all sourced and put together right near St. Louis.

The name doesn’t say it all but you can pretty much gather that somewhere there is a guy named John Beck making things out of steel. That somewhere happens to be east of the Mississippi in St. Louis where John doesn’t just makes things but instead has a collection of tables and lighting that make steel blush. Even more accessible, yet with the same craftsmanship and modern metal sensibility, are John’s cold rolled pet feeders powder coated in some vibrant colors and available in a few sizes. They come with simple white porcelain ramekin style bowls that work beautifully with the steel. You and your pet will appreciate the taste in these.
