Wood, in general has great quality. However, people mistake reclaimed and antique wood for being weak and prone to breakage but these notions are wrong. Since these types of wood are much older, the quality of the wood will also become better, making them an ideal choice to be used in homes, furnitures, walls, floors, decks and terraces.

- Programs itself – Nest programs itself based on the temperatures you set. Nest learns your personal schedule in a week and starts automatically turning down heating or cooling when you’re away to save energy. Nest will keep refining its schedule over time.
- Saves Energy – Nest tracks the temperatures you typically set and guides you to more energy-efficient ones, displaying the green Nest Leaf as a reward when you set the temperature to a more energy-efficient setting. The Auto-Away™ feature uses sensors to detect when you’re not home, lowering the temperature and saving energy. You can also check Energy History to see how much you saved.
- Connected – Connect Nest to your home’s Wi-Fi to control it from your laptop, smartphone or tablet. Change the temperature, adjust your schedule and check your energy usage.
- Simple to Use – Rotate the outer ring to adjust the temperature. The display turns blue when cooling and red when heating. Push down to open the menu.
Philippe Starck and Axor Organic Faucet
The great feature is the two separate controls – one for volume of water and the other for temperature. The control at the end of the spout is what turns the faucet on and off, meaning your hands reach the water a lot quicker than they would with regular top-mounted knobs, thus saving water. The control at the top of the faucet controls the temperature of the water and it even comes with an energy-saving cold setting.
