Welcome to Window Shopping, a weekly exercise in lusting over home products we want in our homes right the hell now. This week: a face mask that matches by beer, a funky streetwear brand's funky coffee and more.
When we reviewed Our Place's Always Pan, we found it to be a great value for new cooks. It does nearly every cooking task — fries, boils, steams, sautés, etc. — thanks to its nesting accessories. In short, if you're only going to buy one cookware tool, the Always Pan is the way to go. To celebrate its one-year anniversary, Our Place restocked its inventory of Always Pans and dropped a lavender colorway to celebrate. If you didn't see enough of this pan on your Instagram feed before, you will now.
"Cold Picnic is either nipples or crocodiles," home editor Will Price says. As part of a spring 2019 collection, Cold Picnic dropped a crocodile rug that is now getting a rerelease for those who missed the first launch. It's cute, it's quirky and it's far better than buying an animal skin rug.
Anden reminds me of the Grovemade of East London. The design studio's latest product is a tabletop mirror called the Cameo. It features a ball-and-socket construction, which allows for a wide range of motion. As Anden puts it "the Cameo manages to be playful, sculptural and reassuringly practical." Agreed, and added to cart.
Brain Dead continues to be one of the most wide-ranging streetwear brands out right now. The California-based design collective dabbles in a little bit of everything from its in-house line of garish clothing, collaborations with brands like The North Face and an assortment of home goods. The latest release is an Ethiopian coffee made in collaboration with Australian coffee shop Wood and Co. The natural-processed coffee is produced by Aleme Wako, and the fact that we know his name says a lot about how the beans were sourced and what we can expect from the quality of the coffee. The natural process means the beans are slightly fermented resulting in a subtle funk — just like the brand itself.
As our commerce editor, and resident beer expert, Ryan Brower told Hop Culture magazine, no one should sleep on Threes Brewery in Brooklyn, New York. Its flagship pilsner, Vliet, is one of the most crispy, thirst-quenching lagers in the craft beer scene, and now Threes has a face mask to match. The Vliet Waves mask features its namesake's can design, a blue two-toned wave, and also includes a helpful pouch with carabiner. Most may think the mask is some sort of tiger print design; those in the know will recognize its true inspiration.
