From the Ground Up: 7 Trendy Ways to Upgrade Your Floors

1. Go Geometric A contemporary and slick style looks especially impressive when juxtaposed with more traditional furniture.

A Coffee Table That's Worthy of Instagram

A Guide to Detroit, Courtesy of Motor City's Newest Barber Shop

Fellow Barber's sleek barbershops reliably produce some of the cleanest cuts (and sell some of the coolest products) a guy could need. Problem is, they've only been available to guys in a couple of coastal cities—until now. "We've always been attracted to emerging areas," says cofounder Sam Buffa. "The Lower East Side, Williamsburg, the Mission District in San Francisco. We started looking all around Detroit almost two years ago, and midtown seemed like the perfect fit."
