  1. Barber Wilsons & Co. Ltd. PS 45

    Barber Wilsons & Co. Ltd. PS 45

    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...


  2. Jade RJDG3610

    Jade RJDG3610

    We appreciate the heavy-duty professional look and feel of Jade’s cast-iron burner grates and the selection of firepower beneath, but we have to agree that the knobs, while solid and...

  8. Mother's Day Card

    Mother's Day Card

    And now, we'd like to take a moment to say a sincere thank you to Mom. You're simply the best. Nothing says I Love You like letterpress, and we liked this card from perennial favorite Egg Press to...


  9. Ubik


    To best appreciate the sleek look of the Ubik system, whose aesthetic we admire (but whose cost causes consternation), proper lighting is a must—–especially if you choose to turn...

  10. Elfa


    Though seeing what’s in your wardrobe will prevent you from forgetting about the sweater your mother-in-law knitted you, your collection of clothes will probably look little like the color...

  11. Selectives


    Nothing comes for free: The financial savings of purchasing this system mean putting in a little elbow grease, as installation requires an enthusiastic DIYer equip­ped with a drill, hammer, and...

  12. Gliss 5th

    Gliss 5th

    If you value your sock drawer over all else, Gliss 5th is the system for you. It can overwhelm a small space, although the angled end sections and doors that open 165 degrees do help it blend in...

  13. Stolmen


    If your ceilings are within the usable range—–between 6'10.5" and 10'9"—–the mounting system increases Stolmen’s versatility, letting you assemble its...


  14. Bosch NGP945UC

    Bosch NGP945UC

    City dwellers that we are, 15,000 BTUs would more than cover our pasta pot–boiling and pork chop–searing needs. We like the spartan feel of the design, but to be truly nit-picky, the...


  15. Viking VCCU165-6BSS

    Viking VCCU165-6BSS

    Induction technology heats the pot with magnetic energy rather than firing up a cooking surface. It is impressive, but we’re not entirely sure it’s worth the cost. That said, a report...


  16. Miele Master Chef Cooktop KM342GSS

    Miele Master Chef Cooktop KM342GSS

    Knobs continue to be the big issue with cooktops. Miele’s six-burner model offers the preferable control panel on the side—but who really needs six burners? We like that Miele offers a...


  17. Thermador CEP365ZB

    Thermador CEP365ZB

     No knobs to contend with here, but the elaborate electronic interface might prove challenging while dealing with an boiling-over pot. The Zonesmart technology, which senses the size of the...


  18. Miele Red Velvet

    Miele Red Velvet

    This is as close to perfect a vacuum as any. The quality of each of the attachments, the material, and overall usability are impressive. The one drawback is the price, which is more than most...

  19. Sanyo SC-X1000P Bagless Canister Vacuum

    Sanyo SC-X1000P Bagless Canister Vacuum

    Well, we couldn’t complain about the suction—until something got stuck. The design of this machine connotes power, but it’s largely aesthetic and insubstantial.  This machine...

  20. Bosch Formula Electro Duo Plus HEPA

    Bosch Formula Electro Duo Plus HEPA

    Not to throw the c-bomb around too much, but this machine is dang cute. The design is simple and straightforward; there aren’t too many buttons or settings to overwhelm, and the performance...

  21. Hoover WindTunnel Canister S3639

    Hoover WindTunnel Canister S3639

    This isn’t the best-looking machine on the market, but it certainly remains true to the Hoover name as far as suction goes. It’s unfortunate that such a powerful, well-made mechanical...

  22. Electrolux Oxygen3 Ultra

    Electrolux Oxygen3 Ultra

    Like the Bosch, the Electrolux is an agile and effective machine. The difference is that the Electrolux seems more thought out in both material and functionality. The attention to detail, finish,...

  23. Beyond the Bubble: The New Japanese Architecture

    Beyond the Bubble: The New Japanese Architecture

    It’s well documented that Japan replaces its building stock at an astonishing rate—the average life of a house is a mere 25 years. With that in mind, this attractive book examines...


  24. The BLDGBLOG Book: Architectural Conjecture, Urban Speculation, Landscape Future

    The BLDGBLOG Book: Architectural Conjecture, Urban Speculation, Landscape Future
