This Is the Zen Garden of Alarm Clocks

Simple lines. Singular purpose. Subtle accents. The only downside to having an alarm clock with such an alluring design as Furni's Alba Media Edition is that you'll be tempted to spend all morning staring at it instead of getting up.

The casing is solid wood, the buttons are gentle silicone, and the design is pure bliss. And! This Furni also improves on previous models by being iPod/iPhone compatible, if you think you've got a playlist that can keep up with it. You've got six color options, but anything beyond "light wood" and "white" make me anxious. As does the $148 price tag, but think of it as a small price to pay for such a lovely face to wake up to every morning. [Furni]
