Splurge vs Thrifty: clocks

In the hunt for a clients playroom design I found some pretty fun modern clocks.  They all had the feel I was looking for, but they all had very different price tags.  (as I’m sure quality too)  When it comes to working on a budget, you tend to design for the aesthetic of the room rather then the workability of a clock…the little guy can’t tell time just yet =) 

I wanted the clock to be colorful, similar to a sunburst, modern and truly eye-catching.  Here is what I found.

George Nelson ball clock originally $280 and is on sale for $139
Lexington modern ball clock originally $70 on sale for $30.58
George Nelson sunburst clock for $300 on sale for $149

Juggler ball clock $30

Smithsonian Ball Wall Clock for $29.95

Lacquered Wood Ball Clock for $124
All are such fun clocks, the colors in each are so pretty together. 
Splurge vs. thrifty…what’s your way?
