It's hard to find modern designs for things traditionally paired with musk cologne and Ralph Lauren plaid but I discovered this great Christofle Cigar Box at Saks for $730. Christofle is a French brand founded in 1830 and known for their sterling and silver flatware but have an array of both traditional and modern designs.

9031 has a small assortment of free downloads ranging from fonts and icons to screensavers and wallpapers. Below is a screenshot of Fliqlo, their flip-clock screensaver that can be adjusted in size and change between 12- to 24-hour timekeeping. They also have an interactive falling lego screensaver that you can play and much more. Best of all, it's the only free thing on this blog.



I came across these modern water decanters at The one on the left is designed for still water and it allows the H2O to rest at the bottom, while the one on the right  allows the air bubbles to rise to the top for sparkling water. BS? Who knows, but they look great. Each decanter is about 14 inches high and costs $580 on the Christofle website.



Kohler has been really creative in designing new faucets, bathtubs, and everything bathroom or kitchen related. Below is their "Main Event" bathroom from their design gallery. In the Body Spa Aclove on the left-hand side they have a wide steady stream of water pouring out above 10 faucets that shoot smooth jets of water at your body, creating a spa experience. Good way to relax and clean off after a good kickboxing workout.

Body Spa Aclove: $7,102.15

The Hammond Chess Set from Ralph Lauren is made from leather and blackened nickel with each set individually numbered. You can buy the set on Ralph Lauren's website under their Home Accessories section for $1,995, but for being but nickel and leather, the price is surprisingly high.
