Design Tip of the Week (10.26.09): Rethinking an Existing Concept

A fun way to bring interesting "pieces" into your home - you know, the kinds that people talk about when they visit - is to find a reworked or modernized interpretation of an old concept. Are you scratching your head? Well basically many designs out there are re-interpreted versions of something we already know and love. So think of it as a twist on the traditional. We recently came by a great example of this in a modernized version of the very traditional cuckoo clock. Then we kind of went cuckoo looking for more to share. Here's what we found.
