It might be called "mobile", but this isn't some shanty on wheels. Instead, the Escape Mobile Cabin is a sleek one-bedroom space that is technically classified as a Park Model RV, allowing it to be delivered to you as a fully-complete living solution. features include a built-in bed with nightstands, a premium bathroom with optional walk-in tile shower, a full kitchen with optional stainless appliances, a main living area with vaulted ceilings, a window wall, and an optional fireplace, and, finally, an optional screened in living area off the main. Whether you're using it as a woodsy cottage, a guest cabin, or even just a small home, it's a great — and surprisingly affordable — option.
One of the best parts about going to a museum is the ability to look at rare artifacts from across the world — and beyond. The Mini Museum lets you do exactly that, right from your own desk. Available in small (11 specimens), medium (22) and large (33) sizes, each museum is handcrafted, encased in resin, and individually numbered. What's inside? Only some of the craziest, rarest stuff imaginable, including some of the oldest matter ever collected, chunks of dinosaur egg, pieces of the Berlin Wall, and even chips of a T-Rex tooth.
Most of the time you think of beekeepers as living out on large farms, tending to their hives with crazy hazmat-style suits on. With the Philips Urban Beehive, you can become your own beekeeper — with the bees living inside your own house. This stylish concept consists of two parts: an entry passage and flower pot that sits outdoors, and a glass shell inside. The tinted glass shell filters light to let through the orange wavelength the bees use for sight, and holds an array of honeycomb frames inside. When it's time to harvest some honey, just pull on the smoke actuator chain and grab some out while the bees are happily sedated.
Fool your guests into thinking you've been taking serious Mixology classes by busting out these White Whale Bold Cocktail Mixers at your next gathering. Available in three styles, each of these mixers is formulated for pairing with a specific liquor — vodka, gin, or bourbon — and features top-notch ingredients like organic lemon, lime, and orange, youngberry, lychee, clove, rosemary, and even Siberian fir.
It's one thing to infuse some liquor with peppers to add a little spice, but normally adding hot sauce to your drink is a surefire way to make sure it doesn't taste quite right. Which is why they make Bittermens Hellfire Habanero Shrub. Similar to bitters, this concentrated syrup is fortified with alcohol to better extract the flavors of the spices, and is perfect for adding a solid kick of heat to any cocktail. Just don't go overboard — normally just a couple of drops will do the trick.
If you prize comfort as much as you value beautiful design and hand-craftsmanship, then you need the Tanner Goods Nokori Chair. Hand made in Portland, Oregon, each chair is constructed from fine mahogany wood and heavy 13-ounce English bridle leather. With a look inspired by mid-century design aesthetics, its minimalist construction is both functional and attractive, while getting more comfortable and beautiful as you use it.
So you've amassed quite the collection of fine timepieces. That's great, but now you need a place to store them where you know they'll be protected. That's where the Doettling Fortress Safe comes in. Offering certified security — up to class VdS/EN 5 — this storage solution is ready for direct connection to a burglar alarm, and offers insurance of over $1,000,000.

Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona chair is as iconic a piece of furniture as exists — but as with most single-seat creations, it can get kind of lonely. Make room for some added company with the Barcelona Couch. Designed in 1930 a year after the chair — and the pavilion for which it was created — debuted, this rectangular couch is basically flat, with a top made from 74 individually-cut, hand-welted, and hand-tufted panels from a single cowhide, a Sapele Mahogany platform, polished stainless steel legs, and a single cylindrical cushion at one end. Elegant, simple, and unlike most couches, built to last a lifetime.
For nearly as long as they've been in business, Bentley Motors has been known for its vehicles' lush interiors. Now they're bringing some of their luxury knowhow to your house with the Bentley Harlow Armchair. A reinterpretation of a film director's chair, it features a base made of handsome, gunmetal-finished linear steel, seating made from cognac-colored leather using a tufted manufacturing process, metal buckles with leather bands on the armrests, and a low-slung look that lets it deftly straddle the line between casual and formal.
Owning a firearm for protection isn't the worst idea in the world, especially depending on where you live. But figuring out where to store where it's easily accessible by you and not by anyone you wouldn't want to have it — kids, angry spouses, drunken houseguests — can be a challenge. Unless you have the Gun Box. This stylish handgun storage box is made from aircraft strength aluminum alloy, and offers either a biometric fingerprint scanner, a RFID scanner and matching wristband, or both, that allow access to the gun inside. And since it's designed to live on a dresser or nightstand, it also features dual USB ports for charging up phones and gadgets, a Kensington lock port, optional GPS for added security, and mounting holes if you're looking to give it a permanent home.
Sprinkler systems are great when you live in a hot and/or dry climate where your lawn doesn't get much in the way of rain — but most systems still run even if you do get the occasional shower. The Skydrop Sprinkler Controller won't. Thanks to its built-in Wi-Fi connection, it syncs up with a cloud service and adjusts its watering schedule based on current local weather conditions. As you might imagine, it also makes it possible to manage your system from your phone, tablet, or laptop, keeping you informed while saving you money and conserving water.
If you're the kind of guy who lives what could be described as a nomadic lifestyle — regularly relocating from city to city, never calling one place home for long — you've probably run into the problem of never holding onto furniture. With the Floyd Leg ($190), you can turn any flat surface into a useful table, great for dining, using as a desk, or just as a spare surface. And when you're ready to move, just dispose of the surface and pack up your legs. They come in sets of four, and include a convenient clamping device, letting them easily attach to any surface creating a sturdy table. Available in black and white, and both 29- and 16-inch versions, each leg is produced in Detroit and built from American steel.
