Delordinaire is an architecture studio out of Paris and Montreal that builds ordinary buildings in exceptional ways. Take their High House in Quebec, for instance. Rather than build what many would consider a standard winter chalet on the ground with views of the Mont Saint Anne, Delordinaire utilized elevated stilt construction and an asymmetrical slope in the roof to create something truly unique. Not only do the stilts create a protected ground floor area (complete with outdoor stove and awesome entryway stairs) they raise the house above the tree line for uninterrupted views and sunlight all day. The house is built with white concrete panels and corrugated steel roof panels that make it blend in or completely stand out from the surrounding landscape depending on the season. The only change we’d even think about making to this superb structure is adding hardware to retract the stairs drawbridge style in case of apocalyptic incursion.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
