A Sofa Bed taken to new Heights

BonBon DOC Sofa Bed
Multifunctional furniture really is something that every home should have. It just makes too much sense for furniture to serve multiple purposes to not have at least something in your home like that.

The DOC Sofa Bed by BonBon Trading is a fantastic example of multipurpose furniture. It converts from a simple sofa into a bunk bed. It takes the “sofa bed” to a completely new level and when it’s converted into the bed, it doesn’t take up any more floor space which is perfect for smaller apartments/lofts.

Gold and Platinum Knives for the Rich and…Dumb

Victorinox Swiss Army Knives

Unreal. I guess some people will buy anything.

Victorinox Swiss Army has produced 2 different diamond encrusted knives for the uber-rich to commemorate the 120th anniversary of Victorinox.

Each knife is covered in 430 flawless diamonds to make a total of 4 carats. Each tool (except for the tweezers) have diamond engravings on to create a “beautiful” piece of work.

The gold knife is available for the low price of $50,000 while the platinum is significantly overpriced at $70,000.

These collectibles (atleast I assume they are “collectibles”…you don’t stab stuff with a $70,000 knife) each are limited to 120 pieces per style and are available here.

Doggie and Kitty Staple Free Staplers

Doggie and Kitty Staple Free Staplers

Whether you are 5 or 50, these staple-free-staplers are just snazzy. Sure they’re a bit on the “kiddy” side, but until they come out with something super manly you’ll just have to make do with a pastel purple plastic dog on your desk. UPDATE: James kindly pointed out that there is indeed a manly version available.

These little “staplers” actually don’t use a single staple at all to hold your papers together. They cut a small flap and notch in your paper which keeps them together without you having to worry about accidently getting tiny piece of metal jabbed into your finger. No, that’s never happened to me.

ThinkGeek has these little gadgets in their store for only $7.99 a pop.

Fiat Lux – Let There Be Light

Fiat Lux Lamp

I’m a big fan of practical design. When things serve more than one purpose it really gives me warm fuzzies inside.

Okay…enough about my warm fuzzies.

The Fiat Lux (“let there be light”) lamp by Swedish designers Cate Högdahl and Nelson Ruiz-Acal not only makes the perfect bedside lamp but it conveniently holds whatever magazine and/or book you might be reading at the time.

We’ll assume your precious reading materials are protected from bursting in to flames from the heat from the light bulb.

LED Tubes Clock – Modern-Vintage at its finest

Tubes Clock

Well it seems we’ve got another LED clock here.

The Tubes Clock by B&W is a fantastic work of art that smells of good old fashioned vintage while making use of modern day technology.

The base of the clock is made of wood and stainless steel while the number “tubes” are made of replica glass tubes really make the piece a smooth work of art.
