How to Blast Music Only You Can Hear: 2 Designer Sound-Proofing Solutions

Two Swedish design companies that are going beyond egg crates and a staple gun.

You can keep noise at bay and cover a few bare walls at the same time, thanks to two Swedish design companies that are going beyond egg crates and a staple gun. Form Us With Love's new Baux line (pictured above) includes geometric acoustic panels (starting at $35 per square foot; baux.se) that use shredded spruce wood instead of melamine foam and can be customized, Sol LeWitt-like, in different shapes and colors. For those who'd rather keep things monochromatic, Blå Station's polyester-felt fan-shaped semicircles (starting at $81; blastation.se) double as textured wallpaper when layered in a dark palette. Either way, you can turn up your home-theater system without bothering the neighbors—or just enjoy the silence.
