THE REST KEY HOLDER // YNDLINGSTING

yndlingsting_rest_key-holder

I came across the REST key holder online and fell in love. It is handmade using oak tree covered with gold leafs for a beautiful effect. The key holder has 3 gold coated power magnets underneath, where you can put your keys.

“The REST key holder is a symbolic key holder in many ways. It is designed to remind you of to leave your problems at the front door. It also happens to be that REST in Danish (as well as German) means residues. And this is excatly what the REST key holder is made of: wood residues.” – Yndlingsting
