Whether it’s the Writer’s Cabin with Folding Walls, the Cabin at Longbranch or any of their other impressive work, Olson Kundig has been responsible for quite a few awesome builds and renovations over the years. Now, Olson Kundig is renovating the Seattle Space Needle. The $100 million renovation, dubbed the Century Project, will feature quite a few changes to the areas at the top of the needle. On the observation deck, the protective wire mesh is being removed in favor of large glass partitions that will give you completely clear 360 degree views of downtown and the waterfront outside while also improving views from inside with floor-to-ceiling windows. On the rotating restaurant level, the floor is being replaced with glass to expose the mechanisms that make it rotate, and they’re building a gorgeous spiral staircase to connect the levels. Work is expected to start later this year with the first stage slated to be completed in 2018. Start planning next year’s Seattle International Beerfest trip now.

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.
