In case you haven't already snagged a 50% off 2010 "Cute 'n Cuddly Puppies" or "Twilight" calendar (or even if you have -- toss it!), I suggest starting off the new year on a design-savvy note and opting for a wall calendar that's both unique and complementary to your home. After all, with all the electronic and PDA-powered personal calendars out there, regular ol' wall hangers are really just for show nowadays... so you might as well choose one that makes a statement! If you're looking for one that's simple-chic (and can even take you through the years to come!), this perpetual calendar designed by Massimo Vignelli is clean yet still stylish. Or if you're hoping for something a little quirkier, this 2010 Bubble Wrap calendar is a clever way to keep track of the passing days. Browse the slideshow for more unique wall calendars to add some 2010 flavor to your home!

Fashion, however timeless or of-the-moment, is just another form of art, a way for the designer and wearer to express their ideas and individuality through clothing. Fashion and fine art go hand in hand in terms of inspiration and expression, so it's a wonder that we haven't seen more examples showcasing this intersection of creativity. Sure, you can get tees and caps screen-printed with "Starry Night," but it's not often that you see a fine art piece turned into a wearable and stylish fashion piece. The Dali Soft Watch does just that. Salvador Dali is arguably the most well-known master of surrealism and his 1952 painting "The Disintegration Of The Persistence Of Memory" s one of the most popular and recognizable. The perfect fashion piece to portray this image? Well, a watch of course! The watch looks like a 3-D version of one of Dali's melting clocks and comes in either silver or gold with a leather strap. It comes in a decorative Dali box and is the perfect timepiece for the art lover in your life!Price: $120.00Who Found It: idabone was first to add the Dali Soft Watch to the Hive.
