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

    1

    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

    2

    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

    3

    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

    4

    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

    5

    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...

    6

    Whatever. I just need this.

  • The Lips Sofa That Literally Kisses Your Ass

    7

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

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

    8

    I absolutely, positively cannot live without these Livingstones. 

  • Living Walls That Would Cure the Winter Blahs

    9

    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

    10

    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.
