Suck UK Laundry Punching Bag

While a necessity, Hampers are neither interesting nor very desirable. Suck UK’s Laundry Punching Bag, on the other hand, is certainly a bit of both. Styled like a punching bag, you can use it to let out some steam before actually washing its contents, and it’s far less conspicuous than a traditional hamper when left out. Since it’s made of polyester it’s a cinch to clean and is…

Samsung The Frame Television

Samsung’s Serif is one unconventional TV design that stood out from the spartan slim-framed black rectangles we’re used to. Now the Samsung The Frame television is another. While most sets strive for thin or nigh-nonexistent bezels, The Frame embraces its, well, frame, made of wood or metal, to look more like a work of art, and adds to this with an “Art Mode” that displays custom-designed art to liven up…

Woodsman Axe Table

The Woodsman Axe Table is as much about form as it is about perceived function. At least in the sense that you could rip its legs off and cut some wood or, with a team of three friends, stave off intruders, though the axe heads are unfortunately not fit for striking. Still, it’s more than a little intimidating, and a perfect match for a countryside cottage where its rustic nature and optional natural waney…

Apple HomePod

As usual, Apple’s not the first tech giant to make a play for your living room — Amazon and Google are already well-established in many homes.
