1. Vanderhall Venice Speedster (From $26,950)
Not just a retro-style beauty, "the Vanderhall Venice Speedster is as much fun as you can have on three wheels," writes Julia Lapalme at Road & Track. The Utah-built weekender has a wooden steering wheel, chrome switches, a 180-hp engine, and no top or doors: You simply step into the leather-lined cockpit and go. Buy it at Vanderhall.
2. Miansai Party Animal ($85,000)
Crack open this 18-karat-gold piñata and it will rain 50 tiny diamonds. Made to be worn as a necklace locket, the 2.5-inch-tall figurine was created by a Miami-based jeweler that has been playfully branching out in unexpected ways. Buy it at Miansai.
3. Le Corbusier Watches From Rado ($18,900)
Legendary Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier had a rainbow all his own. This set of nine ultrathin precision Swiss timepieces takes cues from a coordinated color system he developed to meet designers' every need. And because the watch cases are ceramic, they "will retain their luster more or less indefinitely," writes Jack Forster at Hodinkee. Buy it at Rado.
4. Vaonis Stellina ($4,000)
With a few taps, this "idiot-proof" telescope can locate galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters — and can photograph them, too. Homemade astrophotography setups yield better images, but the app-controlled Stellina works straight out of the box. Buy it at Vaonis.
5. Federico Pazienza Terra-cotta Jug ($894)
Created by an Italian designer based in Rotterdam, this hand-painted 9-inch-tall vessel recalls a time when people viewed everyday objects as magical. The scenes and silhouettes of his Material Spirits line are inspired by the pottery of ancient Greece, where a jug like this, called a lekythos, was used to store olive oil. Buy it at Federico Pazienza.
6. TRNTBL Record Player ($449)
There's never been a more stylish way to listen to vinyl. This wireless turntable is designed to pair with Sonos audio systems or any Bluetooth speakers, and it can create Spotify playlists from the records it spins. Buy it at TRNTBL.
