                                Attribute it to the long hours required behind a computer monitor: many within the design industry harbor a strong affinity for <a href="https://design-milk.com/designers-on-holiday/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">getting away to the great outdoors</a>. Maybe it&#8217;s because camping and hiking feeds into the designer&#8217;s proclivity for problem solving, but all within a wholly different context introduced by the elements. Thankfully, the outdoor gear industry has evolved beyond the purely functional options that once defined the category, with a wide selection of stylish outdoor gear designed for adventure&#8230;magnified with adventurous design. Here are some of our current favorites:

Limited Edition Leatherman Signal: If there’s one tool everyone should have in their backpack, car/truck, and at home, it’s a Leatherman. The Signal is one of their most lightweight, all-in-one solutions, outfitted with 10 built-in tools and covered by a 25-year warranty. Their new limited edition green Signal embellished with topographic detailing is as sharp looking as its blade.

                                If history is any indicator, it&#8217;s almost guaranteed the <a href="https://www.samsung.com/us/smartphones/galaxy-s9/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Samsung Galaxy S9</a> and its larger iteration S9 Plus will reign supreme above the legions of Android-powered devices yet again. The larger S9 Plus model is especially remarkable for its hyper-bright and clear edge-to-edge 6.2-inch Infinity display and perhaps more notably, its new low-light camera outfitted with a very cool mechanical aperture capable of switching between f/2.4 and f/1.5 (earning it a <a href="https://www.dxomark.com/samsung-galaxy-s9-plus-review-premium-specs-top-end-performance/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">DXOMark score of &#8220;99&#8221;</a>).

                                Between the kitchen and bathroom, you&#8217;ve probably got at least a dozen in your home, and if someone lived there before you, chances are you don&#8217;t really like them. Something as small as drawer pulls and cabinet knobs can change the entire look of a space, kind of like adding jewelry to a basic outfit. Yet oftentimes we find ourselves living with outdated and just plain ugly knobs someone else chose. Luckily there are a million options on the market these days so we don&#8217;t have to live that way anymore. Take a look at 10 modern hardware options that will revamp the look of your cabinets in an instant.

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/7-minimalist-sneakers-maximize-wardrobe/2018-minimalist-sneakers/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/02/2018-minimalist-sneakers-810x478.jpg" alt="7 Minimalist Sneakers to Maximize Your Wardrobe" /></a>
                                I love fancy footworks as much as the next person and believe that a great outfit can be ruined (or at the very least, go undocumented) with a bad choice in shoes (nothing a little photo-cropping can’t fix to salvage that photo though). However, when it comes to sneakers, I hail from the “less is more” camp, even while ‘Dad shoes’ and retro ‘sneaks are making a comeback. Simple, minimalist sneakers just have a soft spot in my heart, especially when they’re well-made and classically designed with modern elements. I’m also more inclined to hand over $200 when I think about how many outfits can go with a minimalist sneaker over a maximalist one.

If you’re in the market for a pair of fresh new kicks, here are 7 current favorites that our Tech Editor Gregory and I rounded up to help with your window shopping.

                                Don&#8217;t call it a comeback, it&#8217;s been here for years (it&#8217;s impossible not to channel LL Cool J&#8217;s <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vimZj8HW0Kg"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Mama Said Knock You Out</a> when saying that line)&#8230; But it&#8217;s true – Gold has been around forever and while it never went anywhere, it seemed to have taken a backseat to other metals in recent years, like copper and rose gold. And now, it&#8217;s making its way back to the forefront in the design world, which has us exploring some fun ways to bring it back into our homes. Take a look at some gold accessories that will help you take a dip back into the gold pond.

                                Even before my short 3-year stint as a designer in the toy industry, I&#8217;ve long harbored a love for toys. I believe at their best, toys represent the tools of unfettered creativity and imagination personified into the action of play – habits that sadly fade from the majority of adults as we age. Thankfully, adulthood has only marginally diminished my interest in playthings, with the holiday season magnifying curiosity about toys new and old. Here are 8 of my favorite architecturally-inspired playthings designed to compel exploration of form and structure, regardless of age.
