The Weekender

In Case You Like Weekends...

The weekend thinks, therefore it is.

Your Coffee Table Needs This
PERK ALERT

Your Coffee Table Needs This

This week, we’re hooking you up with a handsome box of inspiration from Phaidon, filled with iconic graphic designs—for 30% off. Display it on your Brooklyn-made coffee table from Yorkwood, who’re taking 25% off their entire line just for Perks members. Lastly, enjoy a bottle of rare scotch from seven legendary distilleries. You’ve earned it...

You Need Fall Jackets. Here’s a Sale.
SALE STORM

You Need Fall Jackets. Here’s a Sale.

If you hold your wallet up to your ear and listen closely, you can hear the sound of Bench & Loom having a sale. One where things like Japanese cotton twill jackets from Garbstore and chinos from Levi’s Made & Crafted are half off. Sorry about that seashell reference, by the way.

The Lights That Should Be on Your Wall
LET THERE BE LIGHT

The Lights That Should Be on Your Wall

We should probably talk about your wall lighting. Not really, but let’s do it anyway. Because the Ace Hotel and Schoolhouse Electric just joined forces to create some industrial-looking, ’70s-style wall sconces that are basically pretty great. They come in a bunch of colors, too. Like aqua. So that’s... something.

Here’s Another Tumblr with Models
POSE BOWL

Here’s Another Tumblr with Models

Models eating cantaloupe. Good, now that we’ve got your attention, we want to talk to you about models eating cantaloupe. And models taking showers. And shooting guns. And... you get it. But if not, check out photographer Alessandro Casagrande’s Tumblr. It’s filled with that stuff. Good thing you love that stuff.

If the Forecast Were a Coloring Book
COLOR GUARD

If the Forecast Were a Coloring Book

When it’s cold outside, you think blue. When it’s hot outside, you think red. And when it’s envious outside, you... think... green. Anyway, it’s an association thing. And here’s an iPhone app that deploys that same methodology to give you the forecast. It’s weather by color. Dogs are going to hate this thing.

Just Some Pretty Funny Coasters
GOING COASTAL

Just Some Pretty Funny Coasters

You can buy coasters that look like cocktail napkins now. Those exist. They’re kind of funny, too. That’s because they’re scribbled with a bunch of humorous asides from writer S.H. Carlyle. Think “No man is an island, except of course for my friend Bob Island.” See. Funny.
