The look we're all about is modern minimalism, with rustic and industrial accents. Restoration Hardware does this better than most. Their Industrial Scissor Lift Table ($675-$1440) is great example of that esthetic applied. The table is a repurposed early american factory jack. It's made from sheet metal and has a large turning wheel that raises and lowers the cart and locks it at the desired height. The sheet metal is unfinished and may rust over time providing a more rustic character. This cart can be used as a coffee table, paired with another cart or raised and used as bar. Restoration Hardwares Industrial Scissor Lift Table will make a great addition to any room.
Genius and Heroin ($15) asks the provocative questions; what is the price you pay for brilliance? And why do so many of those considered to be creative genius' also have a self destruct button? From Caravaggio to Janis Joplin from Charlie Parker to Jack Kerouac and Kurt Cobain, so many artists and authors through history have popped pills, injected, binged and poisoned themselves in the name of their art. With full illustrations this book itself is addictive as you read through the messy lives of some of the most iconic figures that have played a part in our lives. It is entertaining and also thought provoking and tries to get into their psyche and discover why they took the path they did.
