We’ve always liked the idea of cuckoo clocks, but we could never really get behind their design aesthetic. The over the top fences, pieces of wood and pastel colors always seemed to fit more on the wall of that weird Aunt that everyone has they only see around Christmas time. There’s nothing wrong with that and yes, she’s our favorite aunt to. The Quercus is a different story entirely. Made with responsibly sourced plywood, finished in oak stain, shellac and beeswax. They’re battery-powered with a quartz mechanism and a moving pendulum. The bird moves its beaks and wings and the volume is fully adjustable. If you guessed that lines this clean and design this svelte couldn’t be machine-made, you’d be correct. Each clock is handmade in Hackney Wick, London.

 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.
