Hot New Homes: The Best, Worst, and Most "Meh" Celeb Pads in Hollywood

They may all be young, rich, and famous, but these L.A. stars prove that it takes much more than that to create a fabulous home. Some make the grade, and some fall flat. And yet, they're all probably nicer than that box you're living in now, dammit. You wish you lived here.

3 Designers Reinvent the Daybed

While much of the furniture world is busy with next-gen technology (hello, 3-D printing), many of its biggest talents, from Japanese studio Nendo to Piet Boon, are looking back for inspiration—way back, to a time when ancient Romans ate dinner in repose. The daybed—a long, backless upholstered seat—is the latest obsession among designers eager to reinterpret a classic with clean, graphic lines and novel upholstery choices. see more

Q&A: How Hotelier and Studio 54 Founder Ian Schrager Changed Nightlife Forever—and Keeps the Hits Coming

Mr. Schrager, in the late '70s you co-founded Studio 54, the most famous nightclub of all time. What was the best party Studio 54 ever threw? I always used to like the Halloween parties. It was the one night that anybody could get into Studio 54. You just had to come up with a great costume and you were in. You could not believe some of the things that people would wear. I remember doing a party inspired by the artist Bosch with midgets eating Cornish game hens and walking in on a floor full of white mice lit see more

New "Aalto" Hockey Puck Concept Reinvents the Game and Levels the Playing Field

When famed Finnish deigner Alvar Aalto created the Savoy Vase in 1936 for the Helsinki Hotel, he may have hoped it would one day reside in the permanent collection of museums like MoMA and The Met, but we're pretty sure he never dreamed it would one day inspire sports equipment. The Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery (NSID), however, recognized a missed opportunity and recently announced it is "proud to present the first non-round hockey puck in the history of mankind." That's not hyperbole; the traditional hockey puck has held its signature shape since the 1500s. see more

Real Estate Porn: Lairs for Real-Life James Bond Villains

Consider these homes the rebellious response to cookie cutter McMansions in Anytown, USA. Their daring, even deviant takes on home design break the mold and toe the line of taste for a look that's equal parts luxury and villain's lair. You wish you lived here. Location: Camoflauged cliffside home in Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands Price: $15,000,000 Size: 7,000 square feet Key selling points: This isn't your typical Caribbean beach house.
