Remember the good old days?
When your mailbox was not some nebulous electronic-message repository floating in dimensionless cyberspace, but an actual, physical object outside your front door?
In some parts of the world, it still is. The Snail Mailbox, designed by Boym Partners, is a beautiful example of an old-fashioned concept made new all over again. Made from sturdy, powder-coated steel and available in cream and silver, it’s an ode to utilitarian chic that’ll dress up your abode while protecting your precious snail mail. For apartment dwellers, it makes a great indoor accessory — perfect for storing your whatnot (keys, TV remotes, dog leash) or just showing off your excellent taste.
We don’t know about you, but we’ve yet to find a Hotmail inbox that can do all that.
