Adding a traditional grandfather clock to a contemporary-furnished home can look stuffy and awkward. Enter the Tiuku Clock by Finnish designer Ari Kanerva. It will give your home the classicism of an oldschool timepiece but with a chic aesthetic that could fit into any modern setting.

Its tall, sleek two-legged structure and simple pendulum and face are minimalism maximized. So if you're looking for a sophisticated home accent, the Tiuku Clock is it.

Implications - Grandfather clocks are an example of how old products that were once associated with a traditional generation can be made cool again with modern twists. Companies should embrace the retro era, while adding contemporary twists to it within their products.
