Balad: Lantern Style Detachable LED Lamp

There is nothing special about LED lamp or old-fashion lantern. However, when they come together, it might worth taking a look. Balad Collection, as the result of the collaboration of French outdoor furniture company Fermob and designer Tristan Lohner, is a double-duty lamp. Basically, it is a wireless LED portable and chargeable lantern can be hung on lamp-stand or carried around when you need some extra light. Coming in six different colors (verbena, aubergine, fuchsia, storm grey, nutmeg and carrot) and two sizes (small and large), this playful lantern looks like person wearing a set of headphones. It also has two brightness levels – a bright task light and a dimmer ambient light, making it a perfect light source for indoor or outdoor. Simply select the size and color, decide whether to place it or hang it, make it into a lamp for the house or take it with you for a beach party. Like them, you can buy there here.

Hot Tub on The Go! Portable by Floris Schoonderbeek

There are many things we want them portable, however, hot tub? Seriously? Called the Weltevree Dutchtub, the portable, stand-alone basin is powered by a wood-burning stove and supposed to travel with you if you want. The elegant half-sphere weighs around 165 pounds and holds 171 gallons of water—enough for four people to comfortably enjoy it. To warm the water, the tub connects to its heating system via metal hoses and derives energy from the coil structure that’s filled with lit wood. Preparing the Dutchtub is a cross between using a fireplace and boiling a pot of water—simply start a fire inside the coils, cover the tub, and regularly stir the water. You probably will wonder why you need a portable hot tub? So, let’s forget about the portable part, it seems a funny selling point for me anyway. Let’s just call it a wood-burning hot tub! A wood-burning hot tub means you don’t need to worry about the electrical demands needed to make a traditional one run. Hence, if you’re in a rental or plan to move in a couple of years but still want the luxury of having a hot tub you can take with you, that seems an option.

The original Dutchtub can be purchased on weltevree.nl with a price tag of € 5.195. You can find a similar version on amazon.com for $3,299.
