After the final whistle at an ecstatic Stade de France, members of the French National Team – Franck Ribery, Blaise Matuidi, Yohan Cabaye and Raphael Varane – unveiled the new French National Team home kit to be worn in Brasil next year. It arguably combines the best in performance innovation with insightful design details; the new Nike French soccer kit gathers a sort of French tradition and national pride with a high-tech textile. Let’s just hope this uniform will turn out to be a vintage to remember! Read More
Totally digging that house on the cliff. Crisp, white, square, angular, levitating… The perfect summer house that build on a pretty coast or even better, an island. I’m thinking Ibiza. Warm weather, transparent waters, a pool, some escort girls… Pretty picture huh? Stop by the Fran Silvestre Arquitectos website for more crazy architectural projects like this one!
What a beautiful concept by designer Artem Shykov! A piece of art that high-fidelity audio freaks would buy for the design only! A classic tape player/recorder in a handsome professional design body. Not very useful in a world where iPhones can record hours of talks in the palm of a hand but at least, you get to live like we’re back in the 50s! Read More
You know at HME we like to dream and have you dream with us, let’s then take a look at $14M New York condo super couple Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady just acquired on the 47th floor of the One Madison Park glass tower.

It features some of the most stunning views of the Big Apple available (see the dining room below)! You better not be sacred of heights…
I am a glass enthusiast as much as I am a wine enthusiast. I like to buy “special purpose” glasses in case I might need them later and I actually have several glasses that I’ve bought and never used once! Old fan of Baccarat gobelets and pretty fanatic about everything Thom Browne, I couldn’t not write about this amazing collaboration of limited edition crystal glasses with etched 4 bar stripes that includes a water goblet, a white wine glass, a red wine glass, a long stem champagne coupe and a short stem champagne coupe. I won’t tell you how much it costs. Read More
Jean Prouvé‘s iconic table made of a bent steel black lacquered frame supporting an oak top. You can actually find lots of variations for the Compas Table depending on the function they were designed for but this rectangular dinning table is pretty neat! Read More

Fully remodeled, spacious, one bedroom unit in the prestigious area of Minami Azabu. The owner purchased this penthouse unit brand new and spent 18 months renovating it to the masterpiece that it is now. Most of the furniture is custom designed by Ceccotti Collezioni, as well as Italian imported stone and wood used for many of the walls, flooring, and doors. The impressive entrance hallway (see below) has walls that open up to a massive shoe storage unit that holds up to 200 pairs of shoes!! The focal point of this amazing home is the courtyard garden. The corridor surrounding it is designed as a lounge space for guests to enjoy the charming seasonal garden… We knew Tokyo was expensive, but spending $16M for a 4,400-Sq Ft one bedroom penthouse…
You liked Kanye’s penthouse in NYC? What do you think of this stunning modern residence in Beverly Hills, California? The Summit House was designed by Whipple Russel Architects for a well-known sport agent: “Summit house holds examples of our interest in both modern functionality and innovation.” they said. Well, I’m thinking this is typically the kind of house where you’d like to bring back one of our delightful Eliza on Sundays. Smart, sustainable, gorgeous – this is what a dream home looks like.
As part of their collaboration, Smart and furniture brand BoConcept set up a pop-up installation in Paris a few weeks back. The theme was to design what would be an urban living room in a public open space. The result showcased the limited edition Smart car along with a few pieces of the collection. I wouldn’t mind a rockin’ chair or a sofa and I’m sure most of you digg that crazy CEO seat hereabove.
