Following a seminal 2015 partnership, high-design home destination CB2 returns with a new 2021 collection with Lenny Kravitz’s Kravitz Design. 

The extensive collection weaves together design inspired by African textiles, Parisian vibes, and, of course, a rock n’ roll edge. Sprawling into home areas, the assortment oozes the rock star’s seductive bohemian energy and features CB2’s quintessential materials like rich woods, modern frames, and metals mixed with bold prints and customizable upholstery. 

“Our first collaboration with Kravitz Design was really a turning point,” CB2 president Ryan Turf said in a press release. “Together we’ve found a new openness to take more risks in pattern, materials, and scale while still holding true to our collective vision of making great design.” 

This unapologetically global collection includes livable luxury and quality craftsmanship in its lighting, metals, and fabric patterns. Mixing natural materials on lamp shades with reactive glazes, for example, and adding an artisanal and handcrafted touch to rattan lighting pieces that exude scale and warmth. 

The partnership also combines fresh metal use, which can be found on an aluminum dining table with bronze finish and in polished nickel accents across bedroom and dining pieces. 

In the living room, hip corduroy upholstery fabric brings texture to the collection, pairing with a plywood base on the Vaneri Black Corduroy Chair. All Kravitz Design upholstery prints in the assortment, in fact, allow for customization. 

“The new collection is based on a mélange of places, things, and people that I have encountered through my travels,” Kravitz said in a statement. “This new assortment reflects that elevated aesthetic, focusing on quality, craftsmanship, and high-design.”

The CB2 x Kravitz Design collection includes more than 70 new products across the home. In the office, the Paseo Carved Wood Credenza is manufactured with FSC-certified white oak that’s stained with carbon black, white and dark walnut. 

And in the bedroom, the Sojourn Printed Ogo Bed is where polished nickel and geometric fabrics meet. This aligns well atop the Ramble Black and Natural Rug, made of 100% jute (at 16-18 knots per sq. inch) with a bold tan and black pattern influenced by African Kuba Cloth. 

“Home should be a place where you feel like yourself and your spirit is comfortable,” Kravitz said. 

The collection is available now exclusively at Products range in price from $8 to $2,399.

These silver rings for men should be added to your accessories arsenal
Our top picks for silver rings for men

Silver rings for men have always felt like some kind of relic from rebellious '90s rock icons like Steven Tyler, or even early-aughts singers like Chad Kroeger (regardless of where you fall on the "Is Nickelback a good band?" question.) Either that or they usually appear as simple engagement rings under a quick Google search. But, silver rings for men have made a comeback, and they're now seen as the ultimate mark of "fashun." From simple, minimalist designs to intricately carved pieces, there is a silver ring to suit every man's taste these days, whether you just want to add a high-end vibe to your outfit or actually draw attention with an eyebrow-raising accessory.

In terms of affordability, silver rings for men perfectly bridge the gap between stainless steel and gold, meaning you can still look stylish without the ensuing buyer's remorse that usually comes with a hefty price tag. So, what if you don't want to be able to knock someone out with all the accessories that the frontman of Aerosmith sports, yet need something a little more noticeable than a simple silver ring with nothing on it? We've got you covered.

TAG Heuer partners with Kith for Formula 1 watch
TAG Heuer x Kith Formula 1 watches

In its heyday, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection was a sensation, with the '80s and '90s seeing commercial success with over 20 vibrant colors. Ronnie Fieg, founder of Kith, a streetwear brand known for items that take us back to the days when life just seemed simpler, is resurrecting these TAG Heuer watches, though they will cost more than the previous timepieces, with the originals selling for between $130 and $390.

With over 3 million sold, these colorful watches carry a deep sense of nostalgia for millennials, who to this day are a generation seemingly obsessed with the past, and that is why these new TAG Heuer watches will probably sell well once again. Plus, Max Verstappen recently wore one at the Miami Grand Prix, and with the 2-time World Champion's face on something, it always sells big.
