10 Amazing Grown-Up Toys We Want in Our Homes (PHOTOS)

reading nookKnow what every good home needs? A reading nook. No, I don't mean your bed, chair, or sofa. I mean a special alcove you've hired someone to decorate, complete with custom cushions and a curtain. Or, you know, the custom hidden book case that we should all have. A friend of mine was complaining about seeing these in magazines, like we all just have all this spare money and space we can dedicate just for a place to read. I mean, it sounds great ... but come on. It's almost up there with these 10 fantasy grown-up toys for the home.

  • The $9,000 Tent You Can't Live Without


    This is a tent by Anthropologie for "glamping." You know, glamor + camping. As you do.

  • The Indoor Slide That Really Ties the Whole Penthouse Together


    This slide connects the upper and lower floors of a Manhattan penthouse. Did I mention I'm buying this penthouse? Tomorrow. After I rob a bank.

  • The 'Hush Chair' That Lets You Re-Enter the Womb


    Please watch the Hush Chair video and tell me this chair doesn't totally remind you of a vagina. And yet, if I had about $4,000 to burn I would be writing this post inside one right now. I don't care how weird that is.

  • The Bubble Chair Swing That Lets You Live Like Austin Powers


    Shagalicious, yeah baby! The original Eero Aarnio bubble chair will run you thousands, but you can buy a knock-off for around $700, which ... is still way out of my budget.

  • The Reading Nook You Can Just Roll All Over Your Enormous Loft


    These mobile reading nooks were designed for an office space, but they would be excellent for any home. With 50-food ceilings. And perfectly flat cement floors that go on forever in a gigantic converted loft. 

  • The Antique Elevator You Can Use as a Mudroom Or...


    Whatever. I just need this.

  • The Lips Sofa That Literally Kisses Your Ass


    I know you want it -- but you're a good girl ...

  • Stone Pillows You Can't Live Without Now That You've Seen Them


    I absolutely, positively cannot live without these Livingstones. 

  • Living Walls That Would Cure the Winter Blahs


    Living walls -- I love this idea! Here's the thing: Will you also send someone to water the plants for me? Because that would be great thx.

  • Bathtub That Allows You to Bathe in Nature


    Now if you'll excuse me, I see it's time for my bath. In nature. With the deer and shit, because I'm a dryad.
