Shinola and Crate and Barrel’s New Furniture Line Is a Bachelor Pad Upgrade

On Wednesday, August 18, craft maker Shinola Detroit and home décor curator Crate & Barrel releases the stirring results of a dynamic partnership between two quintessential crafters. The Shinola for Crate & Barrel Collection entwines the modern maker spirit with classic American craft furniture and accessories to upscale any home or office.

This collaboration evokes a shared, old-world devotion to building things well or not building them at all. Whether it be a candle or a couch, the Crate & Barrel Collection reflects an inimitable eye for chic function and Detroit style for days.

The 115-piece collection fits a relaxed, refined lifestyle. Clean lines, quality materials, and industrial edges team with utilitarian function in a line that spans furniture, lighting, the bedroom, home office, accessories, and more.

Take the Runwell sofa, a statement piece that sports good looks from every angle. The couch expresses traditional woodworking that runs through clean-lined modernism. Each solid oak Runwell frame flashes exposed joinery that supports oversized cushions for sink-in-and-stay-awhile comfort. Embroidered throw pillows add to the sofa’s ease with textured natural flax linens in simple, stylish geometric motifs that flow with pin-tucked upholstery that even Jack White would be proud of.

Next to the couch, Runwell Accent Collection’s walnut-framed end table and console table flaunt stitching highlights with rich, Cognac-colored, wrap-around aniline leather.

For furniture with a more work-ethic appeal, Utility accent tables unite solid oak with Japanese-style joinery for a simple yet solid aesthetic. In the Utility Chair, white oak is covered in a white-gray, natural flecked canvas.

On the ground or on the wall, the Crate & Barrel Collection’s rugs run in shag and in tweed. The welcoming pieces work to fire a home’s welcoming warmth. To light this scene, lamps rise from sculptural bases to woven-leather shades, doubling as a moment of functional art designed by watch designers sparing no detail.

In a Detroit ode, the Hotel collection is inspired by signature pieces from the downtown Shinola Hotel, bringing built-in luxe hotel vibes to the home bedroom. A nightstand attaches to a plush, upholstered headboard, complete with dimmer switches and integrated power outlets built into oak sconces.

In the brave new work-from-home world, Runwell Office offers airy organization across media storage, desk space, and shelving to create the perfect personal office setup. To animate blank walls, Crate & Barrel has two Detroit art legends — urban photographer Steve Shaw and “Color Moves” artist David Rubello — available in large-scale, gallery-quality prints.

The entire curated collaboration ranges from $24 to $4,299 and will be available online at Crate & Barrell and at select stores across the U.S. after Aug. 18.

If you know anything about Amazon (and let's be honest, who doesn't), you probably know it as one of the biggest retailers in the world. As that retail business continues to grow, though, Amazon has also gotten into the streaming game in a major way. There are lots of movies on Amazon Prime movies as well as plenty of shows, but this list is focusing on the streaming films that have been produced by Amazon as a studio. Amazon clearly wants to be a dominant player in Hollywood, in addition to the dominance it already has in the world of retail, and based on this list, it's well on its way.

Because Amazon is such a new studio, all of the movies on this list are quite recent. Hopefully, that means that they feel vibrant and relevant, and will continue to hold up for years to come.
