Editor’s Picks–May 2012 (Part 2)
Perhaps “elegant” isn’t the first word that comes to mind when you think of a toilet. But if you’re in the market for a new one, you’ll find some sophisticated new looks out there in addition to high-performance functionality. The new INAX SUPERIOR one-piece toilet, for example, features rounded corners and flat edges with a distinctive long “skirt” plus an elongated, noise-minimizing seat and strong jet-stream flush. $623; available in Atlanta at Cowan Supply, www.cowansupply.com.
At Your Service
It’s about time saving on home energy costs got a little easier, and that’s just what the new Nest Learning Thermostat aims to do. Unlike programmable thermostats, the award-winning Nest thermostat automatically adjusts the temperature according to your lifestyle, turning itself down when you’re away and balancing conservation with comfort when you’re at home. Its simple interface is both easy to use and desirable to display. $249; www.nest.com.
Tap into a bit of nostalgia with Pottery Barn’s charming 16-jar Exeter pendant light fixture. Suspended from a galvanized metal base, an array of glass jars, each containing a replaceable light bulb (not included), hangs from gray fabric cords of different lengths to create a dramatic focal point. Perfect for hanging over a rustic farmhouse table. $399; www.potterybarn.com.
