To quote Madonna (something I’m not particularly fond of), “We are living in a material world.” To help you figure out which of the millions of material goods swirling around us is worth spending your hard-earned cash on, we have put together The Want List, consisting of the items we really love this week.
TWIST LIGHT BULB
You know how when someone has a brilliant idea a light bulb goes off in their head? Well, sometimes that light bulb is an actual light bulb. Twist is an LED bulb that screws into any light socket and also works as an AirPlay speaker that puts out high quality audio. It reduces clutter in your home and is sure to be a conversation starter with any guests.
SIXFOLD BEER CARRIER
Mix-and-match six-packs are a great way to try new and different beers. The trick is transporting them. The Sixfold carrier is a smartly crafted solution made from eco-friendly leather and walnut. Assembling it is half the fun and once you’ve loaded the brews into the fridge it folds down flat so you can store it easily.
One of the biggest problems with the Apple Watch is that you spend so much time showing it to people who ask “Is that the Apple Watch? How does it work?” that it drains the device’s battery. The Reserve Strap is like your iPhone’s Mophie case. It charges the watch while you’re wearing it, adding up to 30 hours of battery life.
The original Nintendo Entertainment System remains one of the most beloved video game consoles of all time. But it wasn’t much to look at. The new Analogue NT is for nostalgic gamers whose design sensibilities have evolved since they lived in their parents’ house. Built from a solid piece of aluminum, you can connect it to your TV via HDMI to play classic games like Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out in 1080p high definition.
VILBREQUIN FRENCH SPI SWIM TRUNKS
Vilbrequin started in St. Tropez in the 70s and have maintained the effortless cool vibe of that time ever since. The design of the classic Moorea swim trunk hasn’t changed much—a testament to their timeless tyle—and the prints, while everchanging, have maintained a fun spirit. This regatta print is one of our favorites. Now we just need to find a yacht club that will have us as a member.
