For over half a decade, we acquiesced to simply living without WiFi in our bedroom. After testing countless range extenders, upgrading our modem router, and even moving its location to four different spots in our home, the connection was never strong enough to link our smart TV. So, we simply lived without it, rendering the giant screen as a strictly-for-DVD display. In terms of modern living, the rear wing of our house might as well have been mired in the Neolithic era. Assuming we’d exhausted all solutions, we begrudgingly accepted our Luddite fate.

Then recently a friend mentioned their new Orbi and our ears pricked. We’d heard of these home mesh systems but figured it was just another inadequate solution. However, hearing his eager enthusiasm for NETGEAR’s top-tier WiFi system gave us hope. So, we bought an Orbi 3-pack (consisting of a router and two mesh satellites), installed them out of the box in minutes, and gave it a whirl.



The results have been nothing short of remarkable. Every corner of our house, from the kitchen to the bedrooms, from our office to the garage, is awash with blazing-fast WiFi. From our smart outdoor grill in the backyard to security cameras placed in the driveway, every single device and appliance in the home is now fully connected—without a dead zone to be found.

For over five years, we thought we’d only been sacrificing our streaming entertainment needs, but opening the home to high-speed WiFi unlocked a world of opportunity. The Orbi whole home mesh system seamlessly unlocks the potential of every smart appliance in the home, allowing our wood pellet smoker to run automatic maintenance checks, keeping our wine cellar temperature and humidity under constant surveillance, and ensuring our Zoom meetings run without hiccup. Gaming has never run so smoothly in our living room, allowing all-too-many hours of flawless POV warfare.


NETGEAR Armor all-in-one internet security offers soothing peace of mind. For more than 25 years as the trusted leader in all things networking, NETGEAR packs its best technology into the Orbi—making it the most secure mesh system on the market today. Armor provides an automatic shield of protection from hackers and other bad actors for all your family’s devices, including PCs, smart phones, security cameras, and more.

All in all, the Orbi ensures max speeds and steadfast security for some 200 connected devices, blanketing up to 9,000 square feet with blazing WiFi (up to 12,000 square feet with the Orbi 4-pack).


While several tiers of the Orbi exist, those who want the very best will turn to the flagship Orbi 960 Series. Tech geeks will love that it boasts quad-band WiFi with 10.8 Gbps speeds, a new 6 GHz band ready to deliver top speeds to WiFi 6E-ready devices (laptops, smartphones, tablets, and more), and a 10 Gig internet port. As a final considerate touch, the Orbi units themselves are handsomely packaged in a modern, clean design you can display like sculptures—no need to hide them behind furniture.


As more professional work migrates from the office to the home office, and our lives continue to be more connected, flawless WiFi performance grows ever more critical. With laser-fast WiFi, impenetrable security features, and a sleek design, the NETGEAR Orbi is quite simply the best home mesh system you can buy.

Designing Dreams: David Charette’s fascinating Spaces for Children’s Adventures

David Charette has teamed up with CIRCU Magical Furniture to design spaces that capture the essence of childhood wonder.

Tue, May 21, 2024 4 min

This collaboration between David Charette, founder and principal of Britto Charette, and CIRCU Magical Furniture aims to stimulate the imaginations of children, encouraging them to invent their own tales of adventure. Drawing on his extensive travels, Charette believes that journeying through different cultures can spark creativity in young minds.

His latest venture uses a mix of luxury elements and magical themes, incorporating products from CIRCU, Covet House, and other vendors to create unique, enchanting children’s rooms. These spaces are designed to reflect the excitement and mystery of exploring new worlds.

The Sleeping are:

David Charette has transformed a Montreal residence into a magical sleeping area where time seems to pause, and adventures await. Known for its long, cold winters and short days, Montreal served as the perfect backdrop for Charette’s vision of a space that remains warm and bright throughout the year.

Central to the design is the concept of “light and bright,” brought to life using de Gournay‘s hand-painted wall coverings in fresh mint, decorated with flying butterflies. These elements beautifully complement the original shapes of the KOKET Nymph Wall Lamp and the organic curves of the CIRCU Tristen Bed.

Charette’s attachment to the Tristen Bed stems not only from its youthful appeal but also from its ergonomic design, which makes it easy for children to climb in and out of, enhancing both its functionality and charm.

The Bed:

Charette paired the modern lines of the bed with the unique design of the Boca do Lobo Wave Nightstand and the funky style of Delightfull’s Billy Table Lamp. By blending these contemporary pieces with the classic elements in the decor of this luxury kids’ room, Charette has crafted a unique space that breathes a natural breeze of inspiration into any child’s environment.

This combination not only adds aesthetic appeal but also stimulates the imagination, making the room a perfect sanctuary for creativity and dreams.

The seating area:

The room also includes a cozy seating area perfect for young readers. Centred around the CIRCU Dainty Armchair, this space is tailored for kids, with the chair’s delicate structure and elegant design enhancing the room’s charm. Its pink velvet upholstery adds a vibrant pop of color, enriching the room’s palette. To distinctly separate this reading corner from the rest of the sleeping area, Charette chose the Boca Do Lobo Gold Folding Screen from Covet House, which not only adds an element of privacy but also contributes a touch of sophistication to the space.

The Play and Study area:

David Charette aimed to create a space with an “Out of Africa” vibe to spark a child’s imagination and inspire a passion for lifelong adventures and travels. Drawing from fond memories of camping during his own childhood, Charette incorporated a Teepee Tent into the room’s design, allowing children to feel as they are camping in a forest right within their own bedroom.

This nature-inspired theme is beautifully complemented by the Fornasetti wall coverings from Cole & Son and the Filigree Cricket Wall Lamp, which are insect-shaped sconces by Boca do Lobo.

Adding to the ambiance, Charette notes, “The clouds on the ceiling further the idea of camping (in this case “glamping”) and dreaming, and the Circu Cloud Suspension lamps add to the dreamy camping vibe.”

To maintain this adventurous theme, Charette selected the CIRCU NODO Suspension Chair. It not only brings a hint of outdoor fun indoors with an elegant flair but also offers a comfy spot for kids to unwind and lose themselves in their favorite stories.

In his design, David Charette, of Britto Charette, focused on enhancing the sense of freedom and sparking children’s imaginations in their own space. He chose one of his favorite pieces from CIRCU, the Sky Desk, for its playful design and inspirational form. Shaped like an airplane, this desk not only becomes the central feature of playtime but also transforms homework into an exciting adventure. The unique design aims to captivate and motivate young minds, turning everyday tasks into a flight of imagination.

David Charette designed this luxury children’s room with the hope that it would inspire children to dream, play, and develop a deep respect for nature as they embark on their own adventures.

He crafted the room to be “transitional,” capable of evolving with a child from toddler years into adolescence. This design approach not only aims to create a lasting, imaginative space for children but also to show parents the value of investing in unique, high-quality pieces like those from Circu. These carefully chosen items stand out from mass-produced children’s designs, offering both aesthetic appeal and long-term utility.
