THE BEST Living

Automower Solar Hybrid

Automower Solar Hybrid

No, it’s not a military project gone awry–this Automower is a robotic, solar-powered lawnmower that does all the cutting for you. It even includes an anti-theft alarm.

Webble Active Footrest

Webble Active Footrest

If sitting down tends to make you squirm, a Webble may alleviate at least part of that tension. It’s essentially a mobile footrest that allows your feet to fidget away while you work.

Direct Designs’ Notebook Grill has a host of virtues that make it extremely appealing: lightweight design, handles that double as legs, and highly portable folding design.

PICO Hybrid Radio

The PICO Hybrid Radio combines both DAB, FM and internet radio into a splash proof package. It’s powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery, making this ideal for outdoor and bathroom use.

Quadraflex Eames Speakers

Quadraflex Eames Speakers

This Quadraflex speaker has a timeless style; it was designed over 50 years ago by Ray and Charles Eames. They’re for serious collectors only: you’ll need to hunt for them.

Exposed Flip Clock

Exposed Flip Clock

New at ThinkGeek: the Exposed Flip Clock allows you to watch all 86,400 of your daily seconds tick away in agonizing detail. The gear on the left is a 24 hour alarm.

Steinway Lyngdorf Speakers

Steinway Lyngdorf Speakers

Steinway Lyngdorf’s Model D Speakers literally cost an arm and a leg, and are targeted towards (well-heeled) audio aficionados. Finishes include black lacquer, fine woods, gold and chrome.

Decode Clock

Decode Clock

Arthur Yung and Clemen Cheung’s Decode Clock reminds us of Ross McBride’s Normal watch: the hours are “encoded”, with the hollowed-out hour hand serving as a decryption key.

Lap Tray

Lap Tray

Designed by Harald Hynell, the Lap Tray takes work off the desk and into bed. The 24″ width is large enough for a laptop and a cup of joe; the cushioned bottom is a nice touch, too.

GelPro Floor Mats

GelPro Floor Mats

Got mad culinary skills (or think you do)? Check out GelPro’s gel-filled floor mats. These contemporary non-slip mats reduce fatigue on hard floors, are easy to clean and kill bacteria, too.

Eboy Tokyo Pixel Poster

Eboy Tokyo Pixel Poster

We have dreams (nightmares?) like Eboy’s Tokyo Pixel Poster, which makes this a must-buy. Sure, the giant robots are cool, but I bet you didn’t see the naked chicks on rockets.

God Father Lounge Chair

God Father Lounge Chair

Skate Study House takes skateboards off the street and into the living room; the results are remarkably sophisticated. Above: the God Father Lounge Chair is an homage to Eames.

Cableyoyo Wire Organizer

Cableyoyo Wire Organizer

We hate wires, and dream of the day they’ll all be eliminated. Until that day comes, Cableyoyo’s low-profile cable organizers do the job nicely, and slip right into your pocket.

Ionic Ashtray

Ionic Ashtray

The Ionic Ashtray promises to eliminate cigarette odor by giving smoke particles a negative charge and drawing it to its positively-charged dome. Whatever, it’s only $20 and looks cool.

Lighthouse Wall Torch

Lighthouse Wall Torch

If you can’t get enough of this year’s Olympics, Christina Bjorn’s Lighthouse torch keeps the flame alive. This modern oil-burning lamp is made out of porcelain and aluminum.

Bedol Water-Powered Clock

Bedol Water-Powered Clock

Bedol’s Water-Powered Clock is so elegant that we can’t help but smile. Using water and a bit of salt, the clock extracts electrons from the solution, serving essentially as a fuel cell.

Art: Christian Lorenz

Art: Christian Lorenz

It’s tough not to like Christian Lorenz’s sci-fi and fantasy-themed art. The scenes are imaginative, colorful, and often thought provoking. Gallery Nucleus carries several of his prints.

Cavour Writing Desk

Cavour Writing Desk

Carlo Mollino’s classic Cavour Writing Desk was designed in 1949, but its swank cantilevered design and sleek profile are timeless. The 1/2″ thick glass rests on a streamlined oak frame.

Kitchen Workstation Concept

Kitchen Workstation Concept

Schulte Design’s Kitchen Workstation is a butcher block on one end and a laptop work area on the other. The milk glass panel slides away to reveal power ports and a document tray.

Isay Weinfeld’s Mobile Bar

Isay Weinfeld’s Mobile Bar

Isay Weinfeld’s Mobile Bar is sort of like a rolling keg. Situated on four casters, the unit features sliding drawers and multiple cubbies for holding all your bottles ‘n booze.

Cowboy Saddle Stool

Cowboy Saddle Stool

If you’ve already given up the futon and recliner for the missus, you can still make one last stand with Fernando Akasaka’s Cowboy Junkie stool. Includes removable jumping saddle and stirrups.

Nemo LED Chain Lamp

Nemo LED Chain Lamp

The first few times we saw the Nemo LED Chain Lamp we classified it as a concept, it looked so good. Powered by four LEDs, the lamp is 2.75″ retracted but extends up to 22″ in height.

Concept: Bath Safeguard

Concept: Bath Safeguard

Kai Chen’s bath safeguard is a waterproof silicon gadget that measures the temp of your water. It’s a safety device, but we think it’s also perfect for guys who like their water just shy of scalding.

Cadman Workstation

Cadman Workstation

We like West Elm’s Cadman Workstation for its modularity; mix and match three different-sized units. Also slick: powder-coated steel frame and frosted (or silver-toned) glass.
