This adorable DAB radio is designed to look like wallpaper

We’re a bit in love with the new limited edition Ruark R1, a DAB (and DAB+, and FM) radio covered with fabric inspired by a wallpaper pattern from Osborne & Little.

The pale aqua and soft grey fabric it’s wrapped in features little circle patterns that remind us of eggs, making this spot-on for Springtime and Easter.


As well as looking beautiful, it’s packed with a raft of features: Bluetooth connectivity so you can stream music to it from your phone or computer, a USB port to charge your phone, a headphone jack, dual alarms and a big, bright OLED screen with a big clock. It’s everything you need for your bedside table, without the usual boxy black design.

Be warned, though, it’s pricey: the Ruark R1 Osborne & Little edition costs £200, and will be available from late May in the UK. For more info, go here.
