In part of their “Proud to be American” series, the Chiapet people bring to you Chia Obama.

Greenspot Tiles

Who doesn’t need a little more green in their lives? These really cool Greenspot Tiles are made by Greenspot and can be combined with regular concrete tiles to allow for patches of green to shine though.

These would be a fantastic addition to any big plot of boring concrete. One major plus, from a functionality standpoint, is that these help drain water a lot easier…thus keeping water from collecting on your lover plot of gray.

No word yet on when they’ll be available or how much they’ll cost.

The Butter Wizard

The Butter Wizard
For a fancy dinner party, or just a family meal, you can have butter that stays the perfect temperature.

The Butter Wizard can either heat or cool your butter, based on what you would prefer. It sits on a charging station and plugs into a power station. It will run you around $60, but you can choose your own color to match your decor!

Metaphys Indoor Grass Planters

Grass Planters
Need more art in your home? If you have a green thumb, this is the thing for you. This Metaphys Indoor Grass Planter is a sweet combination of art and organic.

You can hang, stack or set these anywhere in your home or outside. I personally would want to throw in some colorful flowers, or you could keep the bright green pop of grass.

Made by Metaphys.

The things you plant in the AeroGarden require very little maintenance (the manufacturer says only 5 minutes per month). So this is the perfect setup for small living spaces where you might be out of town fairly often.

Having one of these dandy little gardens will set you back about $170 on (it lists for around $230).

Sasa Saddle Pail

Sasa Saddle Pail

Picking blueberries with my family as a kid is always a great memory. Squatting for 3 hours to pick said blueberries is the part I like to forget. :)

Industrial designer, Kitta Perttula, has designed a fantastic gardening tool to solve the problem of squatting and bending over in the garden.

Her Sasa Saddle Pail is a both a stool and a bucket. Simply sit on the saddle and drop the fruit and veggies you’re picking right in to the bucket! Ingenious!

It runs around $45USD at the Design Forum Shop.
