When we think about a doorbell, our minds turn to the finger-sized button placed, in perfect form, right next to our front door. If you're a not a design stickler, you've probably left it well enough alone on your porch or stoop. But what about the part that goes inside your showcase home? That's where Modern Doorbells comes in...

They've designed three doorbell-chime models that find themselves right at home in a well-designed modern space: the Contempo, the Horns, and the Cage. A little pricey for what we think of as an "extra," at $89-$159. But that might be worth it, as we're finding ourselves staring at our little, ugly, white, plastic box in the hallway right now.
