Unconventional in both form and function, this is an ultramodern statement spout that declares its luxury loud and clear, a faceted faucet that resembles an oversized gem and stands up to the...
This switchplate is like a modern riddle: a clever “light box” that illuminates nothing, takes up no space, and can’t hold a thing.
Make like Willy Wonka and outfit your walls in smooth tiles that shine like unwrapped Jolly Ranchers. It’s a good thing the fruity candies don’t take their cue from Stardust Glass, however, as...
You might ask why we included a design that hasn't changed since it was standardized in 1915. A) It looks not unlike a Quonset hut. B) It's included in Phaidon Design Classics. C) The price. Take...
Form following function need not be formulaic. When HouseArt recently acquired Mark Naden's No. 10 from Pure Design, we rejoiced not only in its reissue, but also in the new color options like...
Our lament at the lack of beautiful wood mailboxes was heard all the way in Seattle, where fledgling design firm Barbanc answered our call, nearly overnight. The handcrafted TK 01 is available in...
"Have a shuftie" at New Zealand's take on a standard box. Although it has the ever-urban lock option, we can just as easily see this in a cul-de-sac of Usonian-style homes. It has an industrial...

For out-and-out oenophiles, what could be more satisfying than a house ensconced in redwood reclaimed from wine barrels? TerraMai's siding–redwood, teak, Douglas fir, or pine–provides the beauty of...
HardiePlank and Plyboo: a match made in eco-heaven, right? Well, the energy it takes to bring cement (or bamboo) products to your door must also be considered. Granted, HardiePlank is a durable...
Ti, Al, and Cu are all excellent options for siding. These natural elements are nontoxic (you probably ate some copper in your cereal this morning) and easily recycled. But for us, copper takes the...

We can’t help but feel the various modes are a little gimmicky, and we’d rather leave the massaging to real hands. The design leaves a bit to be desired—or, rather, we desire that it be a little...
We agree: There’s something sort of transcendental about this showerhead. The stream feels very natural, like being caught in a pleasant rainstorm. Because it’s an empty chamber that fills with...
Though the logo disrupts the clean look of this showerhead, it remains an undeniably sleek design. Operating on a half-inch valve, this showerhead maximizes water flow—one doesn’t feel the need to...
