Spring Forward: 10 Clocks We Love
If you are like us, you probably have a tendency to check email or Facebook on your iPhone before you settle in for the night. Also, your iPhone probably doubles as your alarm clock. This alarm dock is the ideal bedside companion piece. The dock is made of sustainably harvested new-growth beech wood and is a modern nod to those faux wood grain casings we remember all too well. Download the free Areaware AlarmDock Clock app on your iPhone (available on iTunes App Store). Early morning has never looked so bright!
Boston-based Chroma Lab knows that color is key when you want to make a cheery statement. This eye-catching birch plywood wall clock will most certainly get your attention when you need to keep time, and with a range of bright designs you'll have enough visual candy for every room of the house. Their refurbished vintage furniture is equally delightful. What else can we say? Spring has sprung and these hues are really making us happy.

Waking up is hard to do. Running late is no fun. Looking up to realize you just watched a few too many episodes of Downton Abby is a little disconcerting. But the sting of these time-based quandaries can be quelled with a look at this bright geometric sunburst of a plywood clock, made by Chroma Lab.
