Metro Man & Metro Home

If you must be snowbound, savor these two items that are of such high quality, that you’ll actually be grateful to be inside. They both fuse function with artfulness and will stand the test of time.

Boll & Branch sheet sets are incredibly soft and indulgent, and ethically made from 100% organic cotton. You’ll feel the difference when sheets are devoid of dyes and harsh chemicals, and your body will benefit. What’s more, the Boll & Branch devotion to an ethical workplace and living wages means society will benefit as a bonus; and Boll & Branch donates a portion of each sale to the non-profit Not For Sale. Find gorgeous cable knit throws (featured above) along with heavenly sheet sets and pillowcases at http://www.bollandbranch.com.

Blendtec is simply the king of all blenders. The Blendtec Stealth, for example, is so quiet that it blends at the sound level of a typical conversation, and is billed as the most advanced blender on the planet. The Blendtec Designer Series Wildside is truly a thing of beauty in red, black, white and metallic. It’s the Swiss Army Knife of blenders because it’s a whole juicer, meat grinder, bread mixer, ice cream maker, latte machine, grain mill, coffee grinder, cocktail mixer, latte maker, and more – you can truly use your imagination in the kitchen. Blendtec machines combine form with function to the degree that they could be used in business settings as well as at home, and are there for your long haul: you’ll start with homemade baby food and will still be Blendtec blending when it’s time for the college graduation feast. Peruse the excellent lineup at http://www.blentec.com. Check out the recipes too at http://www.blentec.com/recipes

Bon Appetit and sleep well!
