9Tailors was founded in 2007 by a young entrprenuer frustrated by always taking clothes to the tailor.  The website is a “Design-it-yourself” customization tool.  You pick the fabric, collar, stitching, button style, cuff style, and type in your exact measurements (they show you how to get these), and within three weeks you have your own, self-designed, custom fitting dress shirts.  Genius.  Shirts start at $60.  BUY

Few things are more enjoyable than a steam or sauna and the Brits have something great on their hands with this one.  Beyond the physical and mental health benefits there are a small handful of companies in the world that have combined them into one.  The best we’ve found yet is Ideal with the Tris model.  The shower is incredible with 11 nozzles and 6 body jets on the side, flow control, foldable seat, and handheld spray.  The sauna matches it with built in hygrometer, 2 kilograms of volcanic stones, bucket and ladle made from Iroko wood, and digital time and temperature programming.  And then there is the steam room with an oil burner for aromatherapy, digital programming and the use of the shower to cool you off at the same time if needed.  Good god, we want one.  $20,000. BUY

Vintage Movie LightAdd art, and functionality to your living room with a vintage movie light. Repoductions have recently become more popular, but this is the real thing, and re-wired for actual use (probably want to downscale any bulb that exceeds a few hundred watts, unless you plan on opening a casting call in your living room soon). A great addition, with an equally great backstory. $2,100 from Sonrisa.  BUY

So to respond to our own post of a $4,600 book – we are countering it with the opposite. Books by the yard are used by interior designers to quickly furnish that new library you want. Choose based on content, age, color or whatever fits your style. Strand Bookstore has a menu of ways to order by the foot. Quickly fill your home office with the greatest classics, or match an entire wall to the painting above the fireplace. The look of age….by tomorrow. Pictured (per foot) – $75, $30, $400 respectively.
