You probably won’t have to worry about archers and invaders on horseback, but that doesn’t mean this lookout-inspired home in the Smoky Mountains is pointless. Designed by Pfeffer Torode Architecture, the unique home shoots up instead of out, allowing occupants to enjoy 360° views after scaling the stunning spiral staircase. A variety of inviting materials were used throughout, including leather, steel, and hide, as the architects tried to use local goods as much as possible. One of the many highlights includes a 19th century Swiss farmhouse sink that aids in giving this home a historic feel. Check out more shots at Pfeffer Torode’s site. Moat not included.

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
