Roundup: Homeland Security


While I'm definitely a peace-loving gal, I can't deny the influence that war and weaponry have had on home decor as of late. From gun vases to bullet planters, it seems as if product designers have a different definition of homeland security than our national leaders. While this may be a commentary on our society's obsession with weapons, I'm still not necessarily willing to stock my home with guns — be they real or made of ceramic.

Still, some of the designs are too provocative to ignore. Take the Diamantini & Domeniconi Cuckoo Bunker Wall Clock ($720). Instead of a woodland scene, this cuckoo (actually, it looks more like a dove to me, which only adds to the appeal) is hunkered down in a bunker. Assembled from 111 small green bricks, the cuckoo/dove sits in the middle of this bunker, and wears a helmet to protect itself from the battle at hand.
