CB2 and Apartment Therapy party guest, Maria

The hourglass is enjoying a moment - or a resurgence - of popularity. CB2 currently sells the 15 minutes hourglass, as well as one for the full hour. Shown here (and below), guests enjoy the CB2 timely decor at last week's Color Contest wrap party. We realize the strong influence of the hourglass shape on many product designs, and found a few that were inspired by the age-old "sand clock"...
