Fall Back in Style

Without a doubt Fall has now arrived in Vancouver. Warm cloudless days have made way for chilly mornings and dark evenings. In just a few days we will be changing our clocks back. Until November 5th we are looking forward to leaving the office while there is still a sliver a light! Since we will all be setting our clocks an hour back, why not swap out your ho-hum clock for something with a bit more style? We’ve rounded up five of our favorites right now along with a couple of alarm clocks for those of you who have trouble getting out of bed when it is still dark!

If you are looking for a clock that makes a statement, look no further than Alessi. This European company has a clock for you no matter what your style is. From the very funky Walter Wayle II wall clock designed by Phillipe Starck to the writable Blank Wall Clock , Alessi never disappoints. Those of us who are on the search for something minimal and refined will love the Ora In/Out.  For something more timeless, HAY (another one of our personal favorite furniture and accessory lines) has the Analog clock which will create a bold, yet simple statement on your wall. The Watch Me  clock from Normann Copenhagen will definitely catch your eye from anywhere in the room. This neutral yet graphic clock was inspired by a fanned out color swatch. No wonder we Interior Designers are attracted to it!

Finally, if you are not a morning person, be sure to pick out a fun alarm from Lexon. Our favorites are the INOUT Clock which has a beautiful rectilinear form that has a second mini clock that pops up to display the alarm time. Say goodbye to wondering if you set your alarm clock properly before bed! The FLIP clock available in an array of colors is also easy to use with “ON” written on one of the large surfaces and “OFF” on the opposite side. If you see “ON” it means that your alarm is activated. After the alarm goes off, you simply flip the clock upside-down to turn it “OFF.” No more slapping the alarm off and going back to sleep!
