Need something out of the ordinary to liven up your home? From hi-tech gadgets to funky furniture, these products not only spark conversation, but they make quite a unique statement in your home. For the homeowner who has everything, here is a list of products that will WOW you.
Earthy Elements: For the environmental conscious, Veraseri Designs has created a line of “eco-friendly” furniture. Their models range from the “Stig Chair” which is made of recycled steel, yellow pine and deer leather, to the “Mangrove Chair,” which was created to inspire awareness and help fund Mangrove conservation programs all over the world. For your bedroom, Anthropologies’ Forest Canopy Bed allows you to indulge in a peaceful sleep beneath the trees. When nature calls, try this “Moss Rug” in your bathroom. Created by Nguyen La Chanh, this bathmat includes three different species of moss, and is said to absorb humidity from the room.
Bad Eggs: The I-Sopod Floatation Tank, offers a calm and tranquil space that evokes relaxation by simulating feelings of being inside the womb. While some believe that locking yourself in a giant egg filled with water is a form of floating hibernation, I think the term “alien invasion” may be more appropriate. Another “tranquil” orbital enclosure is the Neoqi Saltarium, which is said to improve respiratory, skin and mental conditions using salt therapy. The Egg Bed by Lomme encourages rest and rejuvenation, combining light, sound and massage to entice sleepers into dreamland. Not interested in thinking outside the box? Rise and shine to the Hi-Can High Fidelity Canopy Bed. With its square shape and attached big screen monitor, it’s just like sleeping inside a television set.
Defy Gravity: If you’re in need of a lift, Alter-G’s line of Anti-Gravity Treadmills may be just the thing. Designed to help train NASA members, it offers an innovative concept to cardio and could be helpful for those nursing a knee injury. If you’re not in the mood for a workout, you can lounge in the PK24 Chair by Fitz Hansen. The design resembles a hammock and uses gravity to balance any weight that is placed on it.
Creative Clocks: Tired of waking up to loud and disorienting beeping? Hammacher Schlemmer has created the Peaceful Progression Clock, which uses a suave series of lighting, aromatherapy and soothing sounds to gradually break the sleep cycle. Waking up to the smell of “Energy” or “Morning Café’” will leave you waking up on the right side of the bed. The IQ alarm Clock by Oliver Sha has a much more intense approach, so thankfully it is still in design concept mode. It wakes you up by asking you a series of questions, much like a trivia game. The fun part is, the alarm (and its incisive beeping) cannot be turned off until you answer correctly. Warning– no snooze button!
Over-Do The Office: Home builders in Tampa Florida know that the home office is a great place to get creative, anything to encourage an increase in brain activity! Nethrone’s line of advanced office furniture leaves little left to the imagination. The cylindrical system automatically adjusts to your body movements to prevent any strain from occurring, while also giving you an invigorating back massage. The Poketo Handy Manual Shredder combines your office into a gym, giving you a workout as you manually turn a lever to shred confidential documents, in peaceful silence.
Silly Sanitation: To battle sickness and stop the spread of germs, Choi Bomi has designed a concept for a Self-Sterilizing Door Handle. This advanced system will use UV lighting to kill off bacteria. For a luxurious bathroom experience, London based grocery store, Waitrose has developed Cashmere Toilet Paper, made with extracts of cashmere for a softer texture. Surprisingly the cost isn’t much more than regular toilet paper.
Tampa new home builders should always try and stay on top of new and innovative products for the home, but some of these are just outrageous! It may be a long time before new homes in Tampa Bay start seeing such creative products enter their homes. In this case, we can be thankful that home product trends tend to come and go.
