It's a bitter 10 degrees, and nothing sounds better than a steaming hot bath. Here's the problem -- my ordinary, shallow bathtub only allows me to soak about half of my very pregnant self. I want to be covered up to my chin by warm, soothing suds!
Carlo Colombo must have been having the same thought when he created Cuna for Italian bathroom manufacturer Antonio Lupi.__________________________________________

New from Leucos: Deluxe was designed by Archirivolto Design Studio. Multiple triangular facets make up this high impact design. While produced using ancient glass grinding techniques, Deluxe is incredibly modern and is suitable for a host of different settings. The satin-finish diffuser comes in black or white blown glass.

Lights that Chime!
Based on its original, voluminous Allegro design for large commercial spaces, Foscarini introduces Allegretto, a version of more modest proportions, for residential or smaller commercial areas.
Like the original, Allegretto is shaped from intermingling aluminum rods to produce an ethereal structure. Because the rods hang in balance, and are not secured to each other, they softly chime when lightly touched.
Allegretto comes in three profile and metal color combinations: Vivace, in brown; Ritmico in black; and Assai in gold.

Have a Heart
More strangely compelling wine related forms made of glass from Etienne Meneau.Big Heart can be yours for 2 500 Euros plus shipping and if you get it, you'll be in rare company. There are only 8 made, plus 4 artist's proofs.
Would love this today: Elory from Amba towel warmers.

Travel in style
While trolling the web for interesting baby gear, I stumbled across this gem!
The 2008 winner of the Samsonite Baby Travel Design competition -- the Strolley. The suitcase pop-up baby seat is every traveling family's must-have. Sadly this ingenious product is not within reach -- not available for purchase (as far as I can tell!)__________________________________________
