When the quartz watch craze was at its height in the late 70s, Timex jumped to the front of the pack with the Q. The watch has been faithfully reproduced for today's consumers, and this blacked-out edition might be the best variant yet. It features a black dial with a day/date window, lumed indices, and Mercedes-style hands, along with a tonal two-tone black bezel and is finished with a tapered woven bracelet in all black. The watch even nods to its history with a screw-in battery hatch so you can experience the throwback process of changing your battery using pocket change.
Lifestyle journalist Thijs Demeulemeeste finally unites our passion for architecture and automobiles in Carchitecture: Houses with Horsepower. The book finds the common ground between architects and luxury carmakers, both sharing an appreciation for the elegance of design, attention to materials, and solid construction. With these design philosophies in mind, Demeulemeeste pairs iconic dwellings with their car equivalents throughout a series of chapters ranging from "Classic Gas" to "Case Study Cars." Its drool-worthy photos are accompanied by a collection of essays that includes "How the car became Frank Lloyd Wright's ultimate muse."

Mix some military-inspired pieces into your interior design repertoire with these sofas from Stephen Kenn's Inheritance series. Available in two or three seat options, each sofa is made to order in their Los Angeles studio. There are three unique choices offered for both sofas, each with its own unique look and feel. The black leather sofa features foam cushions wrapped in down with support belts that have black cotton webbing, black leather, and blackened steel buckles — all of which sits atop a black steel frame. Or choose the sofa made from vintage military canvas — complete with stamps, lettering, or markings from the soldiers who used them and a marbled rust steel frame, along with support belts featuring Swiss military style cotton webbing in dark tan with dual red striping, oxblood leather, and antique brass buckles. The third option is upholstered in warm grey wool by US manufacturer Faribault Woolen Mills with foam cushions wrapped in polyfiber that sit on a blackened steel frame with charcoal cotton webbing support belts, cognac leather, and antique nickel buckles.
