The Toiletry Bag that Will Up Your Travel Game Like No Other — Maxwell’s Fantastic Find

A few weeks back, I received an email from Chris Livingston about his Kickstarter campaign for Gravel, a toiletry bag that he and his partner Lance designed. At first glance, it looked like a typical men’s Dopp Kit, but I started reading and realized that this is a total game changer when it comes to packing toiletries for travel. While most of us use plastic baggies or throw everything into a catch-all case, Gravel envisioned a better way. And it seems that people agree there’s a better way — Gravel hit their $12,000 funding goal within 8 hours of the campaign launch. Read on to check out how Gravel’s changing the way we pack and let me know what you think in the comments! (далее…)

This Device Makes Any Beer a Draft Beer — Maxwell’s Fantastic Find

There is nothing quite like the taste of beer on tap, but with more and more microbreweries popping up all over the country, craft beers are so much more easily available in cans, bottles, and growlers. So how to achieve that draft beer taste? Well, Fizzics let me test out their new draft beer system, and I have to say that I think they’ve definitely figured something out. Aside from having the technology that actually makes your beer taste better, the appliance is sleek enough to fit in at home and small enough to travel. Watch the video below to see it in action and let me know what you think in the comments! (далее…)

Introducing Max Plexibox: The Framing Gamechanger — Maxwell Ryan + Simply Framed

For our latest collab, I teamed up with Dara Segal of Simply Framed to create a unique and sexy new way to frame and show art. I learned a lot and was eventually drawn away from trying to gussy up a traditional frame to explore something not yet done online: plexiglass box frames. After working closely with Dara on plexi weight and thickness, linen backing and even the color and size of the side screws, we’re done. Please welcome Max Plexibox. (далее…)

The New Trend is Nostalgia Tech: Reminders of the Past with Modern Capabilities — Maxwell’s Fantastic Find

This round-up was a long time in the making and I’m so excited that it has finally come together. I know I tend to feature many brand new tech-y products in this series, and it certainly seems that the capabilities of technology in today’s world are endless: everything can connect to wifi, Bluetooth, and, you name it, it’s got an app. However, over the past year I’ve seen a new trend of «nostalgia tech» — technology that remind us of the past, but has been reinvented with modern capabilities. Today I’ve gathered my favorites from this genre to share with you: each of these products is useful, playful, and is sure to evoke a memory from a decade (or century) past. Take a look, watch the story, and tell us what you think in the comments! (далее…)

Design Show FOMO? Don’t Worry, We Saw It All at ICFF & Here are Some Favorites — Maxwell’s Fantastic Find

Every year during New York Design Week I like to get out of the office and head over to ICFF (aka the International Contemporary Furniture Fair) to check out new design trends. There is always SO much to see, and I admit to having design show FOMO: I can’t help but walk every single row and check out every single booth. I somehow managed to get out of the Javitz center within a reasonable time frame, but not without a bag filled with business cards and fliers galore from all the sellers I visited. Though there were so many inspirational things to see, I managed to narrow it down. (далее…)

I Can’t Get Enough of Modern Clocks: Here Are My Absolute Favorites — Maxwell’s Fantastic Find

This week I was in Seattle, visiting with folks from Amazon, and looking for some good Fantastic Finds down in Pike Place Market. I didn’t find any! Turns out there’s a lot of good food, but it’s overly touristy and also filled with a lot of vintage and collectible stalls that don’t work for this column (So, GO to Seattle, enjoy, but stay here for Fantastic Finds). Empty handed, I realized that I hadn’t yet shared my obsession with clocks and my growing clock collection. Here are my recent faves… (далее…)
