Add a touch of natural elegance to your washroom with Alegna Wooden Bathtubs ($TBA). Thanks to the company's experience building yachts, the tubs feature smooth, seamless, organic lines that are well protected thanks to a highly water-resistant varnish that coats the surface, guaranteeing that they'll provide optimal service for years to come. A number of designs and wood choices are available, and if those suit you, they'll custom build a special tub out of basically any wood you choose.
What can't be improved by making it out of carbon fiber? We've seen everything from car hoods to iPad cases made out of the stuff, but we may have found an answer to our question in the Corcel Carbon Fiber Bath Tub ($TBA). A symbol of opulence equal to the gold toilet, this carbon fiber tub sports a sleek, streamlined shape, is best matched with a modern, standalone faucet, and may/may not come from space and make racecar noises, as the movie suggests. Limited to just 51 units worldwide. [via]
There aren't many shoes that are versatile enough for a formal occasion but also look great with a pair of jeans. But The Newton is up for both occasions and plenty in-between. Each pair is Goodyear welted for flexibility and maximum durability and they're lined with leather for increased breathability, and have a comfortable footbed and a leather outsole that's built to stand the test of time. And even when that outsole wears thin, they can be easily re-soled by a repair service -- extending the life of your favorite pair. Available in black and oak leather.

Originally launched as a modification shop for Rolex hunting watches — hence the name — Pro Hunter now offers a full range of specialized, sought-after sport watches from the Geneva-based firm. Each timepiece from Pro Hunter starts life as a brand new Rolex with box and papers; no refurbs or restorations here. It is then carefully customized with DLC coatings and other modifications, with inspiration taken from noteworthy vintage Rolex models, but applied towards a goal of superior style, functionality, and exclusivity. Specifically, we're offering Stealth black-hued versions of the GMT-Master II, Daytona, Submariner Date, and Submariner Military. All Pro Hunter Rolex watches are accompanied by a 5 year warranty and exceptional service directly from Pro Hunter.
Ever wish your house could smell just like your local barber shop? Consider these Blind Barber Candles ($32-$88) your personal genies.

Complete your retro-futuristic bathroom with the Lefroy Brooks Belle Aire Faucet ($2,030-$2,690). Featuring a streamlined form that recalls the golden age of Art Deco design, it is available in chromium plate, antique gold, silver nickel, or satin nickel finishes, and is just the thing to jazz up an otherwise austere area.

Timeless automotive design. Rolex wristwatches. The artworks of Andy Warhol. Three subjects that vary wildly, yet elicit similarly passionate responses from those who care about them. Assouline's Impossible Collection series recognizes this, providing a thorough, in-depth look at each topic through insightful interviews, powerful prose, and gorgeous imagery. Each hand-bound tome tips the scales at nearly 20 pounds, arrives in a bespoke presentation case, and measures well over two feet wide when opened — demanding a central spot on your coffee table, if not its own dedicated stand.
