When it comes to home and office décor, clocks and wall clocks are some of the hottest, smartest decorating accessory items of our time! There are myriads of clock types to match every room, suit every style, and blend with every décor theme. There are clocks for all ages, for all times (from classic and antique to modern and contemporary), and for all settings. So if you're looking for a creative way to make a fashion statement, it's time to invest in clocks today!

Clock Types

You can select from floor clocks, mantle clocks, wall clocks, face clocks, and digital clocks. Most face clocks include minute hands and second hands and hours from 1-12, although some fancier face clocks indicate only each quarter of an hour. There are clocks that run by battery, and there are pendulum clocks which must be wound by hand. Classic pendulum clocks are the majestic grandfather clocks and their elegant, more feminine grandmother clock counterparts. Also known as floor-clocks, tall-case clocks, and long-case clocks, grandfather clocks are comprised of a clock face, a pendulum, and weights, all standing inside a tall rectangular base. They are also known as striking clocks, or chime clocks, as they produce chimes, musical bell sounds, or organ-like reeds each time a new hour or portion of an hour strikes.

For the best of times, select from a huge array of family room clocks, office clocks, bathroom clocks, sports clocks, animal clocks, kids' clocks, kitchen clocks, dining room clocks, theme clocks, character clocks, school clocks, cuckoo clocks, alarm clocks, clock radios, and more.

Telling Time in Fashion

Adding fashion to function, clocks and wall clocks are an ideal and relatively inexpensive way to add color, style, class, elegance, sophistication, wit, fun, or a sense of warmth and comfort to any room, retro to modern. Clocks can not only compliment your décor, but can make a decorative splash of their own.

Wall clocks come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and can reflect any decorative scheme or theme. There are handcrafted clocks, wood-style clocks, metallic clocks, colored and patterned clocks, silver clocks, glow-in-the-dark clocks, Roman numeral clocks, calendar clocks, ship clocks, European-styled clocks, antique clocks, reproduction clocks, Southwestern clocks, collector's item clocks, new-fangled clocks, quirky clocks, and modern art or art-deco clocks.

Unique Clock Designs

For a gift that is sure to be raved about far into the future, consider a personalized clock engraved or inscribed with the recipient's name, a greeting, inspirational phrase, or personal message. For a heartwarming or entertaining gift idea, or for any special occasion such as a wedding, golden anniversary, or Bar Mitzvah, add a photo in the background of a wall clock to be cherished through the ages.

For a funky, new-fangled timepiece, neon clocks will brighten your days and your nights with their mesmerizing glow. And did you know that "smart clocks" are so intelligent that they automatically change back and forth from Standard Time to Daylight Savings Time?

Banjo clocks are specialized modern-day grandmother clock designs whose middle section curves out like the shape of a banjo, and Hollywood or Rock Star clocks will never grow old or out of style.
