Did you know that the term “living room” dates back to the 1890s? The term was invented by Edward Bok, editor of Ladies’ Home Journal to describe the basic space of a home. Originally called parlors, these rooms were used as entertaining spaces for guests. Bok came up with the idea that these rooms are also intended for living, and not just for entertaining guests once a week. Thus the idea of personal space was born. The living room, as Bock suggested, is meant to be a place that reflects your personality and your sense of living. So we decided to curate products that are uniquely useful and aesthetic, making your home worth “living” in! These include whimsical lamps in the shape of the moon, simple furniture that can expand to accommodate more people, a wooden map to chart your wanderlust and a few other surprises on this list. One thing is for sure, you won’t be able to ignore these amazing pieces!
1. Briv Air Filter
When we say an air purifier, the first thing that comes to mind is a heavy box sitting in a corner that we hope will improve the air we breathe. While this may be effective, it is definitely not aesthetic which is why Briiv revolutionized it with its launch. Briiv is a home floor aquarium that eliminates HEPA filters and UV lights for something more natural in its approach. The filter contains special, sustainable dried algae that purifies the air by trapping harmful particles, killing microorganisms and releasing fresh air in return. Briiv as powerful as 3043 medium-sized houseplants and sitting under the moss are multiple bio-filters, including one made of loosely woven coir fiber, another filter that includes carbon-infused hemp, and a woolen microfiber filter that comes together to filter out particles As small as PM 0.3. This natural approach allows us to reduce waste from discarded HEPA filters. Briiv is the future of sustainable design – merging natural ingredients with technology to create products that help us live better lives!

2. The ginkgo smart moon lamp
There is something somewhat romantic about looking at the moon from your bed window. I would argue there is something more romantic about making the moon rise over your table! Meet Gingko’s Smart Moon Lamp, a soaring orb designed to look just like the moon and glow like it too! 3D printed from transparent PLA, the Smart Moon Lamp comes with a cool design that looks like the surface of the moon dotted with craters. Built-in LED lights shine to give the moon its signature glow, as it lifts and rotates on its wooden base, held in place by powerful rare-earth magnets. A tap on the base lets you cycle through the Smart Moon Lamp’s three incandescent light modes, warm yellow, warm white, and cool white, while a 12V-1A AD adapter provides the entire magical lighting experience. Turn to the moon for meditation moments, for false moon photography, or as the perfect ambient light for your room at night!

3. Transformer table
It’s not often that we feature a product that’s so popular that it’s the #1 watched product video on Instagram. Meet the Transformer Table – A table so unique, it can grow from a single seater to a table long enough to seat 12 (that’s the entire Last Supper sans Judas!) Designed for people in small apartments who occasionally like to host guests, its unique extending ability allows Transformer Table Goes From A Mere 18 Inches To Up To 10 Feet! The table’s secret sauce lies in its design and the incredibly strong telescopic sliding mechanism that allows the table to expand up to 7 times in length, while still being able to hold over 750 pounds of weight on top. The Transformer Table pairs together with the Transformer Bench, which expands to match the width of the table (and comes free with table purchase as a special holiday set). Both the table and bench expand easily (and can be operated by one person) and come made of the finest quality hardwood with a water-resistant and flame-retardant finish.

4. Teno speaker and light
Do you know what is kintsugi? It is the art of repairing broken ceramics by using gold to seal the cracks. Teno from Lumio uses this crack as a detail design! The beautiful lamp + speaker is inspired by a cracked bowl and uses a cracked exterior that gently separates into two parts. As the crack widens, you begin to see signs of life beneath as the lamp below is revealed, shining through the cracks with its life-affirming message of hope. When closed, the Teno serves as a beautiful sculpture of a bowl, when partially cracked, it reveals a soft, warm light, acting like a lamp. And when fully opened is a powerful speaker, which emits a rich sound that you control through touch. The bowl-shaped outer body comes molded from resin and sandblasted, deviating completely from the plastic, fabric, and metal you’d find in lamps and other speakers.

6. The yeedi Vac 2 Pro Robot Vacuum
Imitation is indeed the greatest form of flattery, which is why the Yeedi Vac 2 Pro features a unique technology for cleaning up spills. The patented sweeping action mimics the way humans wipe surfaces with an up-and-down motion. Combine this with the 3000Pa suction of a robotic vacuum and the yeedi vac 2 pro can handle just about anything – on hard floors as well as carpets! The vacuum comes with an intelligent 3D obstacle detection and avoidance system, allowing it to simply move around objects to clean parts of your home – creating a smart map to plot the most efficient cleaning path. When it’s on floors, the broom uses a combination of sweeping and oscillating sweeping to keep floors clean. For carpets, the yeedi vac 2 pro automatically turns off its mopping function and lifts the suction on the broom head to clean dirt from between the fibers! The app allows you to optimize your vacuum operations, and the 240-minute runtime is more than enough for the yeedi vac 2 pro to get the job done. When it’s done (or when it needs to be charged), the vacuum heads to its docking station with a built-in 2.5L bin where the vacuum also dumps dust into. So neat, eh?!

10. Wheel 2 turntable
Miniot updates and reduces the turntable with the wheel! It’s pretty much what it sounds like – a simple wheel. All you have to do is put a log on the wheel, and it will start playing at the bottom. You can control the turntable with the central stick. You can play/pause, play/pause, volume, even the next or previous track using the center stick. You can position the wheel either horizontally or vertically, so you can move it wherever you want, without taking up the amount of space a regular gramophone would use. Equipped with the beautiful AudioTechnica AT95E cartridge, and an acoustic tune crafted from polished mahogany wood, the wheel not only emits warm, clear harmonies, but also exudes a simple, luxurious aesthetic. The Wheel does not run on batteries, but it is an analog record player that should be connected to a great amplifier, speakers or headphones.
