1. Hand Carved Garden Benches by
An indispensable element for enjoying the
garden on a particularly splendid day, the garden
bench has been given an extra dose of style. Now
in an array of different designs and intriguing
natural materials like basalt, travertine and
even sustainable hardwood—a good bench can
transform any area from drab to fab.
2. Is Black the New White?
When it comes to color, the long-standing,
traditional choice for the bath has been white. But
a new trend is emerging—with consumers moving
in the opposite direction by choosing products in
black. Consumers intrigued by this new design
movement may want to consider Villeroy & Boch’s
newly expanded ‘Memento’ collection. With a
water closet (WC), bidet and several washbasin
variations in glossy black, Memento presents
a whole new array of options for bathroom
fashion. In addition, the chic Memento furniture
line features updated pieces highlighted by a
stylish new black glass shelf.
3. Smart Home Heating & Air
The Ecobee Smart Thermostat is a wi-fi
enabled device that lets you monitor and control
your home heating and cooling system from any-
where. While regular programmable thermostats
stick to fixed routines, Ecobee’s online access
means that users have flexible control over home
heating and cooling, adjusting as needed.
