Every year, as part of our Departures 100 list, our editors meticulously assemble a compendium of the 100 people, places, and things worth knowing about. As always, some are new, some are tried-and-true. But everything will matter in 2017. Here we take on the essentials for your home, office, and beyond—including the ultimate office chair, the sexiest light bulb, the app to get you to JFK in five minutes, and much more.
