tableFurniture of all types has been getting extreme makeovers lately, mainly to make the pieces look more modern. And these days, modern more often than not means geometrical. They have space under the tops of the tables, at the bottom, for extra storage for things like books, magazines, and really, anything else you need to store but want to keep close at hand.

This Cornered Coffee Table by Dylan Gold Designs is a wonderful example. It is called simply “Cornered,” and it features space right at the corner where you can keep your things. All told, the table is both function and aesthetically pleasing.

The table is made out of a fiberboard with medium density and is finished in a satin polyurethane. The veneers are customizable for an added touch.

ps3-goldHave you noticed the tendency for everything, every little thing, to get dipped in gold or diamonds or Swarovski crystals lately? iPhones and other cell phones, gaming consoles, dresses, cars, pool tables — you name it and it has been gold plated and diamond dipped or it will be at some point in the near future.

And guess what’s next? The PS3. As you can see here, it is the latest technological wonder to get dressed in gold. It is officially touted as the PS3 Supreme. It is coated with a whopping sixteen hundred grams of pure, solid gold. Any gamers out there who can get their hands on this thing will never be called a geek again. Maybe a total spendthrift, but probably not a geek.

However, only three of them are available, and only at the sky high price of £199,995.00.

Beignet Bathtub Now, I am an avid bath-taker.  I take one almost every single night to relax myself and when I found out that there is actually a bathtub that was designed for the future and designed with relaxation in mind, I just had to check it out!  The Beignet Bathtub is actually the first bathtub that is actually able to let you tap into your spiritual side.

It is actually called Spiritual Mode and I have to tell you that the beautifully carved circle shape of the Beignet Bathtub is awesome.  Not only does it make it roomier but it feels different and unique.  The metal taps and nozzles at the tubs base actually provide a gentle water massage – which is good to relax you.

So if you are like me and are looking for a way to relax after a hard day or night – make sure you tap into the Beignet Bathtub!

The Expose LED BedI have been waiting for years for something as cool as this to come out.  Now I am a girl that absolutely loves LED lights.  I think that they are genius and I certainly can appreciate the designs that they make.  Personally, I think that The Expose LED bed is by far the best invention that anyone has ever really made and the fact that they have night stands to go with it?  Awesome!

This is actually a green bed too and it is made from sustainable materials, which to me really makes it all that much better.  While this set might take around three months to complete, the LED bed is actually handcrafted from rotten teak planets and mixed with white LED light with a blue light effect that is caused by some clear epoxy material.

SO if you are looking for something different and unique – and green, The Expose is honestly the best bed for you!

Cell Phones Just Got a Little More Luxurious!

finger-touching1Okay, I am going to be honest. This item is one of the coolest things I have ever seen in my whole life. It is like every super techno scifi espionage action flick ever. The Finger Touching Concept Phone — need I say more? Well, of course I do!

It is the closest we can get to being bionic these days, really — the phone straps onto your wrist, at which point you can take the whole “Talk to the hand!” concept to an entirely new level.

The phone works by using an actual digital hologram, which actually projects the keypad right onto your fingers; your knuckles act as separators. Unfortunately, to place a call, you have to use that rather annoying “omg, I’m so totally on the phone” gesture with your thumb and your pinkie, but hey, sometimes you gotta make sacrifices if you want to be high tech.

Forget Ping Pong, This Is Bling Pong

chrome-ping-pong-tableYou know, some people take their love of and skill at ping pong very seriously … and it might be fair to say that this particular ping pong table was designed especially for them.

We currently live in a world where, for just about every standard item you can imagine, there is also a luxury version — and yes, that now includes ping pong tables. If, of course, you are willing to spend about fifty five grand on the privilege.

Cumulus Studios, courtesy of Nathalie Karg, and Rirkrit Tiravanija, a designer, are responsible for this shiny, blinging piece of sports equipment. As you may well imagine, it is a limited edition piece of work.

It is so limited, in fact, that in addition to being quite insanely expensive, there will only be ten of them made.

Conmoto brings out the cozy moments this 'fire season'Now that we have talked about lingerie, let’s go ahead and dive right into one piece of furniture that you are not going to want to forget these season.  Winter is coming up and if you live in the north – on the east side of the country, snow is going to be coming soon and I can promise that you are going to want to curl right up in front of something … why not make it a Conmoto fireplace?

This particular fireplace is actually really cool and it can actually face any direction and you can curl up by the fire.  The great thing – you can actually put it anywhere too, because it is gas.

Conmoto is the maker and this particular fireplace is actually pretty damn cool and I think if you have the money, it is worth the investment.

Victoria's Secret reveals $3 million diamond braWhile I would not be comfortable wearing three millions dollar anything, I think that a million plus dollar bra is something that is pretty cool actually.  This particular bra is actually a concept of Victoria’s Secret and really, I think that it is actually a smokin’ hot bra … if you have that kind of money mind you.

This bra was actually designs by the Italian jewelry house Damiani and it actually took over 15 artisans about eight hundred … yes, you read that right, 800 hours to craft up this one of a kind bra.  IT has 18 karat gold harlequin-patterned net and embellished with about 2,355 colorless and cognac diamonds.

The diamond that hangs just below though is actually a 16-carat heart-shaped champagne diamonds pendant that dangles right in the middle.  It’s pretty awesome actually.

A New Way to Get Your Coffee Fix

coffee-centre-on-wallYou know how it goes. You want a big coffee dispenser, so you can have a lot of coffee — but then you end up sacrificing a whole lot of counter space, and who wants to do that? Even if you are lucky enough to have a metric ton of room in your kitchen, you likely have better things to fill it with than a ginormous coffee dispenser.

That is where the Ariston Built In Coffee Dispenser comes in handy. Great for office use and use right in your home, this dispenser can go right into your wall — and coffee is the least of what it will brew for you. You can enjoy cappuccinos, espressos, tea, lattes, and plain old hot water as well — if, of course, you are willing to shell out upwards of $2,260 for the privilege.

Who Says Luxury Can’t be Energy Efficient?

truled-tv1Even HDTVs are getting new age these days, cats — and, yes, energy efficient as well. Check out the Vizio TruLED HDTV — fifty five inches of TV watching goodness. And yes, it is energy efficient, considered to be a replacement for those TVs which still work on cathodes. In fact, this TV is even a replacement for the new flat screens.

And you know how much those flat screens cost, right? Well, at $2,200, the TruLED HDTV is not really as expensive as some of the others. It is not outrageously more expensive, anyway.

And ideally, of course, price is not going to matter, since the TV has nearly a thousand individual LEDs and boasts a two million to one ratio.

Meaning you will get a sick sharp picture while still somehow managing to be more energy efficient.
