A project celebrating the durable, functional and beautiful

The  word “useful” is mainly used to describe objects of a utilitarian nature with set purposes. Today, quantity often takes precedence and we end up surrounded by more things than we need. While some possessions cycle through and are passed along, ending up in the arms of strangers, a select number remain with us over the years. These are the most special of objects, often acquired in interesting ways, and their stories are being told in the 1​00 Useful Things project.
