The genius Cube side table–slash-stereo system by La Boite Concept is fully tuned into modern listening habits. Rest your laptop on the top shelf, or DJ wirelessly from a smartphone. Six speakers direct crisp audio to every corner of a room. $1795, at Stylegarage

DL-SP16-Score-EQ3

TOP-TIER LADDER
Designed by Toronto’s MSDS Studio for Assembly, a concept collection envisioned in collaboration with industry breakouts, EQ3’s Rack props up against bathroom walls to hold towels and robes. It’s inspired by a design featured in the 1953 film Tokyo Story. Available in February. $300, at EQ3
