Even if you once had a secret soft spot for wild, tie-dye accessories, it's nice that today's cannabis consumer doesn't have to own smoking stuff that clashes with the rest of their lifestyle. If you embrace sleek, functional, modern design in every other area of your home, why should your cannabis kit be any different?
Here are five understated, grown up smoking essentials that work with your minimalist aesthetic.
1. The Stashtray
Designed with neat freaks in mind, the Stashtray is the ultimate surface for crafting the perfect joint. Two hand-welded, stamped sheets with a mirror-finish edge are topped with a four-part aluminum grinder, ashtray, pipe spike for cleaning out your bowl, and magnetic stickers to attach your rolling papers and other accessories to the tray. Among the many delightful, multi-functional bonuses: ashtray lid flips over to become a bowl stand, and the magnetic dabber keeps the sticky tip in the air and off any surface. Hand made "book box" allows you to keep everything camouflaged, packed up, and placed neatly on the shelf. $195 from Myster.
2. The Aura Water Pipe
This concept titanium and glass water pipe will represent a clean break with old-school aesthetics when/if it's released: it looks pretty much like a high-end kitchen gadget. The spacious chamber provides a smooth, clean smoke and a secret compartment to keep all your accessories in one place. "You don't have to deal with lost lighters anymore," writes design blogger Tuvie. "There's a space within the mouthpiece that you can use to store one." Generous platter around the bowl prevents spills, wide base prevents tipping, and high mass of titanium pulls heat out of the pipe to keep you from getting burned. No firm release date yet, but manufacturers expect it'll start around $250 from Aura.

Get lit, no matter how you choose to consume, for $50 from Cigarmony
