Clock Party

Posted July 21, 2006
Obsessed with Jonathan Adler’s kitschy style? Then get thee to Anthropologie, where this Lucite cuckoo clock pays homage to the brash and brassy old days without looking old at all. Available in olive or sky blue, the Italian-made clock chirps once every hour and boasts a bevy of hidden silhouettes for studying, procrastinating, or deep psychological analysis: after staring at the clock, one friend saw a deer in the forest; another imagined his ex-girlfriend in a Jacuzzi. You’ll never be more entertained by a home accessory, and even when you’re over its novelty, you’ll still have a great looking piece for your apartment that matches almost anything.

$278 at Anthropologie, 85 Fifth Ave., at 16th St.; 212-627-5885;
