ON THE BENCH
Chick-a-Dee Smoke Alarm, $95
THIS cute smoke detector has been inspired by the American black-capped chickadee and mimics the bird’s subtle ‘‘chick-a-deedee’’ sound at the smallest threat, rising to an 85-decibel alarm when smoke is detected. The chick, perched on a plastic ‘‘twig’’, hangs from the ceiling; good for haphazard home cooks who like their smoke alarms to come with a splash of designer style. More: hardtofind.com.au.
