A jump across the pond lands us in London for this month’s installment of Design Store(y) . Folklore is a new interior design shop owned by stylist Danielle Reid and her husband, Rob, that stocks a tightly edited selection of homewares, furniture, lighting, art, and lifestyle goods that are handmade, antique, or made from recycled or found materials. All the goods are made in an environmentally mindful way and craftsmanship is key. Time for our tour! Why did you pick this neighborhood? We live in Islington so finding the Upper Street location was perfect for us.
Dear Lifehacker, I'm moving into a new apartment, and I don't really have a lot of furniture to my name. Should I just head out to Ikea,buy everything I need, and save some cash?

Unlike other superheroes’ emblems, which really don’t serve much of a purpose outside of adorning their costumes, the Caped Crusader’s iconic logo has a vital function: When shining on the skies above Gotham, the silhouette alerts Batman that it’s time for action. For the sake of clarity in times of peril, you’d think it would make sense to keep this all-important signal consistent throughout the years. But apparently, that’s not the case. According to this infographic, the CEO of Wayne Enterprises has overhauled the visual identity of his other venture some 30 times since he founded it in 1940. Designed by Cathryn Laver from Calm the Ham , the graphic traces the evolution of the Batman logo from its earliest iterations in the comics of the 1940s through its use in Adam West’s delightfully campy TV take in the '60s, Frank Miller’s dark graphic novels in the '80s, and George Clooney and his nipple suit in the '90s, and ends with the multimillion-dollar Dark Knight films today.

Seven years into its existence, the online handmade and vintage marketplace Etsy is such an Internet cultural staple that its most distinctive superficial parts--the twee aesthetic of many of its shops, the earnestness of its mission (“to change the way the global economy works”)--have become fodder for popular parodies.

Positioned within a waterway in Hamburg, Germany, and officially completed in 2010, the Houseboat on the Eilbek Canal by Sprenger von der Lippe is a seamless juxtaposition of a secluded, outdoor environment with a contemporarily designed facade and interior layout. As the title implies, the design is a floating residence that aligns the floor level along the water with a spacious living room, private bedrooms and an elevated kitchen and dining space.
The “uninvited redesign” has become a fixture on the Internet over the past few years. It perpetuates the perfect symbiotic relationship between designer and audience: People love seeing what Wikipedia or Microsoft might look like in the hands of a genius, and designers love stretching their legs without the burden of a real client or brief. It’s even become a way for established agencies to secure work.
