Why tackle crowded subways, road rage and the worldâ€™s most ferocious shoppers when Culture Label aggregates art and design objects from 75 of the U.K.'s top galleries, museums and libraries into one site? The brand-new enterprise edits the most unusual and beautiful pieces available from spaces such as V&A, the Tate, Saatchi Gallery and the British Museum so that shoppers can browse and buy from the comfort of their own homes.
From remote-controlled snakes to lo-tech cameras, see what we found from Culture Label below.
German-born potter Anja Lubach's Porcelain Vessel (above left, £61) features subtle reliefs of anonymous faces. The piece works as a vase, cup, votive or just as an object for display.
Anyone deserving a "Bravo!" will appreciate British artist Martin Smith's whimsical Applause Machine (above right, £225).
Made of wood, this crossbow and its two padded arrows (above left, £26) will stand up to the toughest of play and can stand in as a costume in a pinch.
To freak out parents and relatives this holiday season, this remote-controlled rattle snake (above right, £30) realistically slithers.
Every budding photographer needs a Pinhole Camera (above left, £13) and this one makes it a little easier than the DIY oatmeal container version.
For bibliophiles or playboys (or both), these Devastating Man Cufflinks
(above right,15GBP) allow the owner to wear it on his sleeve.
