When it comes to Mid-Century Modern design, only a few names are as lauded as Charles and Ray Eames. It doesn’t matter if you’re talking about the best office chairs, storage units or coat hooks, Eames is the name to beat. Vitra, a firm that has quite a few iconic products in its portfolio as well, has teamed up with Eames Office to produce the compact Eames Radio. This desktop radio was originally designed in 1946 but was one of the few radio designs that never actually went into production, because the manufacturer wanted a more “normal design.” That was obviously a huge mistake. So Vitra and the Eames Office worked with British manufacturer REVO to create a version of the original Eames design with modern technology. As with all things Eames, this kind of quality comes with a hefty price tag. Seeing as how it’s one of the most gorgeous radios we’ve ever seen, it’s worth it.

 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.
