#1 ColoredShape Black Wall Lamp
If you’re after some killer interior styling, this intuitive lamp design will do the job just fine. The volume of the lamp is cut back via cross section to leave behind just the outline of a traditional lamp, with the bulb acting as the fulcrum of the appliance. It’s an aesthetically beautiful piece and similarly functional in providing extra storage space in smaller living quarters.
Price: US$140/BUY

#2 1955 Jaguar D-Type
Vintage cars are nothing new but when one pops up that is as close to the original as this, it can fetch a serious bid. The vehicle in question is the 1955 Jaguar D-Type, powered by the original 300hp 6-cylinder motor, original 4-speed manual transmission, body panels and brakes, the car was faithfully restored in 2003 by CKL developments. With multiple race wins under its belt, the asking price for this piece of motoring history is not cheap.
Price: $3,750,000 – $4,250,000/BUY

#3 Lego Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series TIE Fighter
We’re trying our best to grow up and stop playing with Lego, but when the brick company keeps releasing special edition replicas of the silverscreen’s most iconic vehicles, it’s extremely hard not to get excited. This latest not-for-children release is a 1,685 piece monster of a build that is extremely detailed and stands at 18.5-inches tall once complete. For reference your standard car wheel is 17-inches tall. The Star Wars Imperial TIE Fighter will go on sale from May via the Lego website.
Price: $200/BUY

#4 OM/ONE Levitating Bluetooth Speaker
Bored of speakers that can’t fly? Yeah, us too. That’s why OM/ONE developed the world’s first levitating Bluetooth speaker to provide 360degree sound in the most unorthodox fashion possible. The base is a magnet that helps lift the innovative speaker design a few cms up and rotates it continuously.

The designers have also promised that just because it looks great, it’s no novelty piece that cheaps out on sound quality. You get a full 105 decibels of output with a 3 watt RMS amplifier in the package along with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and 15-hours of boom time between speaker charges. Literally no work will get done if use this for the office.
Price: $195/BUY

#5 Whiskey Bullets
Only chumps use ice to chill their drinks. Manly men? They use chiller bullets. We’re not sure if you’ll be able to get these into your country but if you do, it’s guaranteed you’ll be the most badass guy at the bar. They’re not real bullets by the way so you don’t need to worry about gunpowder poisoning. Still we wouldn’t recommend you pack this with your kid’s school juice bottle. They come in a pack of six bullets.
Price: $45/BUY

#6 Laptop Speaker Desk
Just because you have your work hat on, doesn’t mean you can’t wear your party pants too. This sweet laptop speaker desk equipped with a built-in Audiophile speaker system is a beautiful piece of woodwork that integrates some serious piece audio gear within it. Your laptop simply plugs into the stereo via USB and the hi-fidelity sound card will convert your average compressed digital music into uncompressed music files.

This means the fullest, crispiest and clearest sound possible from the desk unit. Don’t believe us? The stereo’s loudspeakers have seven drivers in total – two 2″ tweeters, two full-range and two medium drivers, and one 6″ woofer. That should be enough to take care of all the precise high and low tones an audio freak expects.
Price: $2,300/BUY
