Leave it to the talented people at Phaidon to turn our wanderlust for the waves and our desire to be near the water into an experience you can have without ever leaving your living room. Living on Water, the latest in a long line of great coffee table books from Phaidon, is described as “a sumptuous survey of houses built with a strong connection to the oceans, lakes, rivers and pools around them.” In other words, it’s a global exploration of structures built to look at water, built on water or built to reflect water. Those three sections compose the 270+ page hardcover tome. Whether you’re venturing off to Lebanon or The Netherlands, Living on Water: Contemporary Houses Framed by Water will make you want to drop everything you’re doing and head to the water.

 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.
