Originally built in the 1700s, the Cat Hill Barn Renovation is a wonderful update of a centuries-old structure. In part of the effort to get the new plan approved, Snook Architects had to avoid changing the exterior to look too much like a house. As a result, the outside of the Yorkshire home still looks much like it did when it was used as for agriculture, while the interior is throughly updated and modern, with an open plan, concrete floors on the ground level, exposed beams, sleek kitchen cabinetry, and a brick fireplace that provides a nice backdrop to the dinner table on one side and a centerpiece for the living area on the other.
Inspired by classic fighter jets and powered by a twin-turbo piston engine creating 350 hp, the Cobalt Valkyrie Personal Aircraft is both an incredibly stylish and capable machine. The interior is decked out with hand-stitched leather seats, custom trim, and can hold up to five people while providing ample cargo room. The world's largest one-piece canopy offers excellent visibility, the landing gear retract to help with control and aerodynamics, and both the "canard" design with forewing and optional airframe parachute provide piece of mind in case of a mechanical malfunction. Available in a range of finishes.
As classic as sneakers get, the PF Flyer Rambler Speckled takes cues from the 70 + year tradition the brand boasts, with an added twist. Available in black or grey speckled wool, each pair of Ramblers features the Posture Foundation insole, patented back in 1933, and still going strong. A classic hi-top with baseball diamond leather outsole, traditional lace, and the square, green PF heel patch — a sign of the brand's enduring dedication to quality sneakers.
No matter how hard you try, you usually can't make an Old Fashioned like those that trained mixologists crank out. That's where Watershed's Pre-Mixed Old Fashioned comes in, combining the company's 90-proof bourbon with orange and aromatic bitters, raw cane sugar, and Ohio cherry juice. All you really need to do is serve it over ice and you've got a cocktail that's way better than whatever you were trying to throw together in your kitchen. Tip: Hide the bottle, then add an orange twist and some harmless lies before serving to impress guests.

There are plenty of choices out there for a great looking watch, but there aren't many that combine a great looking minimalist design with precise timekeeping and an affordable price like MVMT. This beautiful timepiece comes with 6 hand chronograph Japanese movement, 3 sub-dials, and a 22mm sandstone leather band with a gunmetal stainless steel buckle. It's all housed in a 45 mm gunmetal stainless steel case, with brushed gunmetal plated, hardened mineral crystal on the surface. The Los Angeles based company has yet another watch that fits as well with your casual attire as it does with a formal getup, and all for a price that won't break the bank.
You'd expect a home owned by a pair of interior designers to be impressive, and Nate Berkus' New York Penthouse — shared by the Oprah favorite and his partner Jeremiah Brent — doesn't disappoint. The two-level space is located on Fifth Avenue in the heart of Greenwich Village, and was designed by 1920's architect, Emery Roth. The upper floor has been transformed into an entertaining space, including an updated chef's kitchen with a wall of windows and skylights behind the sink and a pair of terraces to enjoy the city views, while the lower level houses three bedrooms, including the master suite and its enormous dressing room. Other highlights include the four fireplaces, wrought iron staircase, and 10.5-foot coffered ceilings.
Built at the behest of professional boarders Romain De Marchi and Austen Sweetin, the Yes 20/20 Snowboard is a unique twin that uses concaves at the nose and tail to provide a fun ride in both deep snow and hard pack. At the front, the concave draws air under the board, causing it to lift slightly, while the rear concave lets the board sit back a little, resulting in a pitch that's more like riding in a set-back stance on a directional board — yet since it's a true twin, it rides great regular or switch.
If you've ever dreamed of making your own moonshine but were too lazy to splurge on a full setup, this Tabletop Moonshine Still looks like the perfect alternative. It's constructed from the same stainless steel used in premium cookware, ensuring your hooch stays safe. It's easy to use, and with a 1/2 gallon capacity, you'll have 7 to 12 ounces of your very own white lightning ready to be bottled in a Mason jar before you know it.
Built in Upstate New York for a pair of brothers, these Geometric Twin Houses have different forms and even a different number of sides, yet are built from five identical geometric shapes. In house, they form a rectangular, almost square form, while in the other, they're assembled to form a hexagon. Both feature large, panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows, spartan interiors, and dark outer shells, and are linked together not only by proximity, but also via underground water pipes that allow the homes to share water gathered from their rooftops.
Designed with the same minimalist aesthetic that put Joey Roth on the map, this solitary Steel Speaker fills the room with high end sound in style. Made entirely in Portland, Oregon from steel, aluminum, and maple, it's wireless, and features omnidirectional sound for a first rate listening experience. The omnidirectional sound is achieved thanks to the hardwood ball at the base of the speaker, pushing vibrant sound and housing the Bluetooth antenna simultaneously.
Although the App Store is home to tons of VR software, virtual reality on the iPhone has mostly been an afterthought when compared to Android-focused solutions like Google Cardboard or Samsung's Gear VR. Figment VR is out to change all that. This combination headset and case lets you snap in your iPhone 6S or 6S Plus and enjoy immersive, high-quality VR right on your phone. Its built-in case offers protection, and its unique folding design means you don't have to remove it every time you want to go somewhere — just fold it to the rear and use/pocket your phone like you normally would. Available in white or black.
Brewing the perfect cup of coffee requires precise control of many factors, including the water temperature, grind, time, and coffee to water ratio. The Auroma One Coffee Maker makes the process easy. It integrates the grinder, water reservoir, heating and brewing chambers all in a single unit, allowing it to control the entire process. While you can set each attribute separately, you can also just rate the coffee it brews based on factors like bitterness, texture, and kick, and it will automatically adjust the settings to fit your preferences while also recommending new beans from local roasters. It's as foolproof as it gets, short of just placing an order at the local coffee shop.
Ministry of Supply believes that a suit doesn't have to be stiff and uncomfortable. Their 3D Suit proves that a suit can be as cozy as sweats, without compromising the look you need for a business meeting or formal occasion. Made from a new material that provides unrestricted movement, the soft, versatile suit even has an added layer of insulation to keep you warm without adding any bulk. Wrinkle-free, easy to machine wash, and available in blue and gray.
Cooking a pizza should involve more than just pulling a box out of the freezer or tapping away at your phone. Crafting a pie from scratch is a great experience to share with family and friends, and also helps hone core kitchen skills. The Pizza Book can help you get started. At its core is a seriously great dough recipe that's been perfected over a decade by the authors Aaron Quint and Michael Bernstein. It also includes a glossary of toppings, recipes for all their favorite pies, and even recommended beverage pairings. The end result is a happier you, making pizzas at home, and a sad delivery guy, who'll be wondering why he hasn't heard from you in so long.
Developed in conjunction with Yamaha and debuted at the 1965 Tokyo Motor Show, the Toyota 2000 GT was Japan's first "supercar", capable of a 135 mph top speed. Only 351 were built, and only 50 made it to the US. This particular 1968 example was the first of those, and the 100th production chassis made. It's rare in that it's set up for left-hand driving, and also includes the original owner's manual and rarer still complete original factory tool roll. Repainted just this year in factory-correct Bellatrix Yellow, it's one of the best examples of these until recently under-appreciated cars available.
Most high-quality boots are made to last years, if not decades. But you have to take proper care of them. The Red Wing Heritage Master Care Kit includes everything you need to do so. The included waxed canvas mason bag sports copper leather details, and has a (filled) slot for every single care product Red Wing makes. The package also comes with a leather working mat, two pairs of boot bags, some finishing cloths, two pairs of socks, and an embossed boot horn that will help keep those heels in great shape.
Every great film is a time-consuming, painstaking work of art. Celebrate them appropriately with Stellavie Director Portrait Prints. These giclée fine art pieces measure roughly 16" x 20", are printed on textured, acid-free cotton paper, and were developed in collaboration with artist Julian Rentzsch. Each one combines the visage of a famous director — Hitchcock, Kubrick, Scorsese, Lynch, Burton, or Tarantino — with elements from their iconic films, and a quote that briefly sums up their signature style. Limited to just 200 and signed/numbered by the artist, they're a perfect upgrade over the pedestrian posters that currently populate your theater room walls.
Launched in 2004, Common Projects has firmly established itself in the pantheon of high end footwear with low-key aesthetics. The only branding visible on the shoes are ten gold digits, divided into three sets, indicating the style, size and color of the shoe. The sleek lines and contemporary styling of their Chelsea Boots have garnered a cult-like following. This new variation features black suede with coordinating elastic gussets and crepe soles. They are meticulously handcrafted in Italy and their minimal styling is suited to occasions, formal and casual.
Set on a hillside in central Germany, Villa K is a minimal glass, steel, and concrete residence built with an eye towards sustainability. It faces south, so as to provide better views and more sunlight, the home is set back into the hill, providing natural cooling, the roof is an alternating series of moss, sedum, and solar panels, and an exterior garden provides fresh food. The interior is broken up by glass panels that stretch from the floor to the ceiling, serve as the front wall of the building, and block off the lap pool that extends from the interior of the house out past the terrace and appears to float over the ground below.
Some regard it among the best albums ever made. Others think it's too disjointed. Regardless, it's one of the most important albums ever recorded, and now you can own the first copy ever pressed. The Beatles White Album Pressing No. 0000001 was given to Ringo Starr upon the album's completion, with the other three band members receiving Nos. 0000002-4. It was pressed from the very first masters (as indicated by the -1 matrix numbers), has "Factory Sample Not For Sale" stickers on both discs, and, since it was stored in a bank vault for 35 years, is in pristine condition, as are the pack-in portrait photos and lyric poster. A piece of rock history that would be the highlight of any collection, with proceeds going to benefit the Lotus Foundation.
Built for the track, the Zenos E10 R melds lightweight components with serious power to deliver a great Britain-born racing experience. It's powered by a turbocharged 2.3L Ford EcoBoost engine, tuned in-house, paired with a six-speed transmission, and good for over 350 hp. Helping to keep it on the track are an adjustable suspension, new lightweight wheels, and uprated brakes. And thanks to a hybrid chassis that uses a blend of carbon composites and steel, wrapped by easily-replaceable GRP body panels, it weighs just over 1,500 lbs, letting it move from 0-60 in just 3 seconds and hit a top speed of 155 mph.
When James Bond needed a pair of boots for the rugged conditions in the Austrian Alps during Spectre, 007 turned to the legendary Danner Mountain Light II, the same model we collaborated with Danner on last year. (We're not saying James Bond reads Uncrate, but it's clear Q does.) Made in Danner's Portland factory, in a special black-on-black colorway, the Mounting Light II is a classic hiking boot with unmatched quality, durability and support. The full-grain, one-piece leather upper offers a spy-worthy classic look, while the Gore-Tex lining provides waterproof protection. Danner's famous stitchdown construction creates a wider platform for stability, and the lace-to-toe system ensures a secure fit. The chunky Vibram Kletterlift outsole offers comfort, superb shock absorption, and great traction on both wet and dry surfaces — no matter if you're heading up a snow-covered crest or find yourself chasing down villains in an unexpected plane/car chase.
Created by a Sony subsidiary and successfully crowdfunded nearly a year ago, the FES E-Paper Watch is finally available. While mention of an E-Paper display might lead you to believe this is yet another smartwatch, it is instead a more traditional, albeit wildly customizable timepiece. By covering not just the circular watch face but in fact the entire band in E-Paper, you can choose between a white or black face, decide how many, if any, markers to display, and swap between a variety of white or black strap designs, many of which ape traditional band and bracelet materials. Available at select Japanese outlets, with more stores and potentially markets to follow.
For years, fans of the fantastic Ten Fidy Stout from Oskar Blues Brewing begged the brewers to can a barrel-aged version of the beloved beer. Well, Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy is finally here, and it's as good as fans dreamed it would be. Packaged in these 19.2 oz "stovepipe" cans, it takes everything you love about Ten Fidy but bigger, bolder, and even boozier at 12.9% ABV. Previously only a draft release, these cans are still tough to find, but worth every sip if you get your hands on a few.
