The Rubiks Cube table by Los Angeles-based designer Parvez Taj takes the frustration out of an iconic brainteaser without scrapping its nostalgia by turning it into a rugged design element. Measuring 14 inches on all sides, the acrylic cube is coated with acrylic inks in the gadget’s traditional colors, intending it for indoor as well as outdoor use. An incorporated electrical socket compatible with a bulb of up to 60 watts means the cube can give off a colorful glow after dark. Parvez Taj, 800.981.6630;
