OUSEPLANT STANDING ASHTRAY
Spiff up your cigar lounge with this mid-century standing ashtray from longtime collaborators and Hollywood heavyweights Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

HENDRICK’S GIN GAMING CHAISE
In an age of virtual reality and immersive video, Hendrick’s celebrates the art of old-world gaming in the laps of luxury.

Crafted of buttery green velvet, rich copper accents, and wooden legs, the chaise features a pair of retractable arms to hold cocktails, cards, and game pieces.

SPINN SMART COFFEE MAKER
Its stated mission is to revolutionize the home coffee drinking experience, and this clever device delivers on multiple fronts: the podless system spins fresh ground coffee to erase waste and boost flavor, and can prepare everything from espresso to cold brew. It pairs with an app, so you can press brew through your phone or Alexa, and you’ll receive an alert when it’s time to refill the beans. The app also connects aficionados with thousands of roasters around the world, from the big dogs to small mom-and-pop brewers, so you can find your perfect cup. $999

 

 

COMETEER COFFEE CAPSULES
This Massachusetts coffee manufacturer seeks to blend two glorious but formerly mutually exclusive niceties: convenience and superb quality. Touted as the world’s first hyper-fresh coffee capsules, each recyclable aluminum pod is filled with top-notch beans that are flash frozen at -321 degrees and shipped on dry ice. They are machine compatible, but Cometeer recommends merely opening and dropping the coffee into hot water or milk for the fanciest cup of instant coffee you’ve ever had. $64+
