Backpacks are great for carrying stuff, but not so good at giving you easy access to that stuff thanks to their deep main compartments and floppy builds.

Set on 200 acres about an hour outside Madison, Wisconsin, Thistle Hill Farm takes a thoroughly modern design and disguises it as something more fitting: a traditional barn. The open floor plan includes kitchen, living, and dining areas downstairs, along with guest and kid bedrooms and a stone fireplace that's extended to the patio, while the upstairs loft holds the master suite and an office. It was built next to the foundation of a century-old barn, which was used for retaining walls by the pool, surrounded by a new garage and original outbuildings. Power is provided by solar panels in a nearby field, and the steel exterior framing lets it stand up to any weather, yet it's the red-painted cedar siding and a tin-plated copper roof that let it blend in with the landscape so well.

The Tesla Model S was already a great vehicle, so there was little reason to give it a full overhaul. That said, the 2017 Tesla Model S does offer several notable improvements over prior models. Most obvious is the switch from the more traditional front end to one seemingly borrowed from the Model X, with no grille and a sliver of black in the center. Also on board is the Bioweapon Defense Mode HEPA air filtration system from the X, full LED adaptive headlights, updated seats, an upgraded charger, and two new wood decor options. And unlike most refreshes, the new models are available starting today.

It comes packaged with a full-color collector's book in a premium black box, with all the major components packed in separate boxes so you get a little added insight into how its real-world counterpart comes together.
If you're going to customize a Triumph Bonneville Standard, you might as well go for broke. This Ducati Miss Moneypenny Triumph Bonneville Motorcycle is a collaboration between Marcos Martines and Ducati Triumph NYC that was hatched when a client wanted something original he could ride and park in his living room. The fuel tank, headlight, bucket, inner ring, skid plate, and fenders were all removed and replaced with shiny copper while a custom leather seat was created using a British Customs seat pan. As appealing as Monneypenny herself, and optimized for the streets of NYC thanks to suspension modification, adjustable springs, and piggyback shocks.
