I currently have many things that I would love to acquire. Some of these I consider great design and others I find as great tools.
Eames Aluminum office chair – a great office chair that is comfortable and also good looking: http://store.hermanmiller.com/Products/Eames-Aluminum-Group-Management-Chair
Eames Lounge – I have wanted this chair for years. It would be a great addition to the house as both a show piece and also seating: http://store.hermanmiller.com/store/servlet/dynamicKit__10151_-1_10051_1097?CAWELAID=846660089
Backpack – Waterproof backpack that would be great for commuting and work: http://www.missionworkshop.com/products/bags/backpacks/rucksack/sanction.php
Backpack – Not as good looking as the mission backpack but the same function: http://www.amazon.com/Overboard-Liters-Premium-Waterproof-Backpack/dp/B004D13NCE
Commuting coat – Mission workshop makes some of the best looking functional items: http://www.missionworkshop.com/products/apparel/jacket/waterproof-orion.php
Digital Lock – A door lock that kids can use on the house, never leave a key lost: http://www.amazon.com/Schlage-FE595VCAM619ACC-Camelot-Keypad-Accent/dp/B000NJJ1TY
Stereo – I love hi-tech gadgets but this is just pure vintage goodness. My father had the Pioneer SX-727. I have been watching for a good version of this. Pioneer SX-1010 – http://www.classicaudio.com/value/pio/SX1010.html
This is just a good list of things. I will eventually get around to buying a few of these.
