Jacobsen designed this canape in 1939 for the city hall in Søllerød, Denmark, and it has never been produced for the retail market. Its Danish modern form is updated with bright yellow upholstery (though it’s also available in gray and black for the less adventurous).
Easy chairs are, sadly, not always so easy on the eyes. Give the old Barcalounger the boot and slip into Toro, a smooth leather-and-wood looker.

Jasper Morrison hits another home run with this alarm clock available in red, black or white. Though we're known to hit the snooze button over and over again, we wouldn't mind being roused by this looker. There's also a special edition of the AC 01, whose proceeds help benefit people living in Maeami, a fishing village in the Tōhoku region of Japan, which was swept away by the March 2011 tsunami.
