We have this inherent desire (read: need) to upgrade everything around us – even if it isn’t exactly necessary. Dishwashers end up supercharged. Cars get spoiled. Offices and closets get Van Goghed. But once we got our spirally, super green CFL bulbs we thought we were done with lightbulb upgrades. Turns out we were wrong. KAWS (the artist with the toys that look kind of like Mickey Mouse with the X eyes) teamed up with the Standard Hotel to create lightbulbs with a custom X KAWS style filament in three colors. At around $20 a pop, the 120volt bulbs are definitely pricey, but they’re also the only lightbulbs we’ve ever been excited to buy.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
