Speak Up

 

Wireless speakers are nothing new, but stylish electronics are a fairly modern innovation. The Philippe Starck-designed Parrot Zikmu Solo stereo tower ($1,000) is an audiophile’s dream wrapped in smart design. parrot.com

Speed Racer

If Santa is feeling generous this year (and if we’ve been good), we might just find the mod new Vespa 946 ($9,946) under the tree. Inspired by the original 1946 Vespa prototype, the hand-built scooter comes decked out with LED technology, futuristic aluminum detailing and plenty of modern style. vespa-canada.cadecember-the-goods-2

 

Plug and Play

BoConcept’s Cupertino desk (from $1,195) packs modern conveniences into a sleek and stylish workstation that hides an integrated Bluetooth sound system and specialized compartments for cable management in a compact, minimalist package. boconcept.comdecember-the-goods-3

 

All Lit Up

If Ol’ Blue Eyes had a bent for home decor, you can bet Delightfull’s Sinatra floor lamp ($5,023) would’ve been right up his alley with its faux-mic-stand post in retro-glam metallic. delightfull.eudecember-the-goods-5

 

You’ve Been Served

We love it when a utilitarian item gets a dose of flair: these colour-dipped serving spoons and carving forks ($35) from Ladies and Gentlemen are stainless steel standards with a splash of personality. ladiesandgentlemenstudio.comdecember-the-goods-8

 

City Slicker

Don’t wear your civic pride on your sleeve—stick it in your pocket. Colourful depictions of Vancouver, Calgary and other Canadian cities by illustrator Gary Taxali (you may recognize his vintage comics-inspired work from the likes of Esquire and Rolling Stone) adorn special-edition hand-rolled and -stitched Italian silk Unfamous pocket squares ($95) made exclusively for Harry Rosen. harryrosen.com
