Simply staring at great design is often enough. Basking in it’s glory.
But when great design provides great functionality too, well that’s just perfect.
Here are 3 items you’ll be wanting to add to your home soon that have the workings
to back up their good looks.
Behold the VTech LS6195 Retro Phone. Now I’ll admit, I hadn’t had a land line telephone
in years before meeting this beauty. But when I saw it, I knew it was special. Sleek styling, combined with key retro design cues produce jaw dropping results. Plus it has all the bells and whistles you expect from VTech. The cordless handset rests face down in that oh-so-classic way, while rotary-style numbers on the base really bring home that nostalgic feel. And of course, you also get exceptional call clarity and a bevy of customizable features.
Also available in White, Red, Aqua and Orange

Take a gander at the new “Source” soda maker from SodaStream. This masterpiece designed by Yves Behar, makes you not even care about what it does. But sure enough, the attractive unit takes the idea of the original SodaStream soda maker, and redesigns each element with spectacular elegance. New features such as a “snap-n-lock” mechanism for easy bottle insertion and removal, a touch responsive top panel, and an LED display to show carbonation strength, take the SodaStream idea to great heights. Everything else on your counter space will be green with envy.
“Source” will be available in the 4th quarter of 2012
starting at $99 for the basic version.
