Officially-Licensed-Overlook-Hotel-Rug-from-The-Shining

From the locations and sets, to the performances and the direction, there’s no denying the fact that The Shining is one of the most iconic movies ever created. We’ve seen plenty of tie-ins and reproductions of classic pieces over the years, but nothing that really made us want to bust out the wallet and drop some serious coin on a piece… until now. We can all finally own an officially licensed version of the Overlook Hotel hexagonal pattern carpet in the form of an area rug, runner or as a full roll sold by the square meter. Made for Film and Furniture by the UK’s sole license holder of the original 1960s Hicks’ Hexagon design by legendary interior designer David Hicks, this 1 ply wool carpet is high quality, custom made and hand tufted. We can’t imagine anyone would want to switch up the iconic red, brown and orange colors from the original, but custom colorways are available if you’re interested. All you need now is an adult-sized Big Wheel to really complete the experience.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
