    2. A mid-century modern bedside table, because your TMJ mouthguard and anti-snoring nasal strips deserve to be stored in style. The sleek handle and angular legs will have people thinking you collect expensive vintage furniture on the side. (Though it does vintage one better by including a wireless charging port to keep you and your Qi-enabled devices all charged up without a mess of wires.)

    3. A Wi-Fi-powered robot vacuum cleaner, so you can feel like Zenon, girl of the 21st century, with a spotless apartment. You can hook the device up to your phone, so cleaning is as easy as ordering Postmates or making a new Spotify playlist.

    4. A sliding barn door storage unit for your dining room, kitchen, living room, or studio apartment that's a kitchen–living room–dining room in one.
