Depict Image Frames
Screen technology has become so good that we don’t think twice about how quickly it’s evolved in the last decade. It’s now so advanced that we can update the art on our walls with the click of a button.
The Depict Frame is the newest way to experience art and transform your space. It offers museum-quality digital-display technology for a modifiable digital art frame. The 49-inch 4K LCD screen can be hung in portrait or landscape orientation, and when combined with the Depict app, gives you access to the more than 600 exclusively curated works in its collection (you can also use your own photos and images). If you want the option to keep your walls constantly updated, the Depict Frame is your answer.

Wolf Blake Valet Tray with Cuff
Save $25: Dumping your wallet, keys, watch and cell phone on the dresser at the end of the day is one option, but if you prefer a classier setup, you really need a valet tray. The Blake Valet Tray with Cuff from Wolf, makers of watch winders, cases and jewelry boxes, is made from leather with an Ultrasuede interior and is only $60 right now on Massdrop. It features five compartments, a watch cuff to display several watches, two watch guards, and a removable tray with an outlet for a USB cord, and comes in brown or black pebble.
If you don’t need quite as much watch storage, for $50 you can opt for the Blake Valet Tray without the cuff, which features four storage compartments and comes in grey as well as brown or black pebble. — Oren Hartov
Hunter Rain Boots
Save 20%:With unpredictable fall weather in the forecast, you’d be well-advised to pick up a pair of waterproof boots if you haven’t done so already. While there are many options on the market, few have the cachet of UK-based Hunter, which has been making functional rubber boots for over 150 years. Founded in 1856 as the North British Rubber Company, Hunter was the go-to for foul-weather footwear for British soldiers during the World Wars and became a civilian staple in the post-war decades. Now at East Dane, you can pick from a range of waterproof boots from the brand for 20 percent off. The styles feature gusseted welting, quick-dry lining, padded insoles and grippy outsoles. The best part? The classic waterproof styles look good with a range of clothing and are appropriate for daily wear both in and out of the city.
