The X System

This new and innovative shelving system was created by Brisbane designer Alexander Lotersztain for Australian brand Planex called “The X System.” It combines simplicity, versatility, and strength to form some of the coolest shelves out there. Shelves can be easily added or removed and the only tool required to do so is an allen wrench. These would be great for your shoe selection but if yours is anything like mine you might need a few extra shelves. [Via Kanyeuniversity].

The New Bentley GT

I know this is probably out of most of your price ranges but this car is still fun too look at. It is the new Bentley Grand Tourer (GT) Coup. You have probably heard many rappers bragging about their GT Coups, but they do so for good reason. This is the ultimate luxury sports car. It has 552 Horsepower and can go from 0 to 60 in 5 seconds, and it features real leather and wood interior. It’s a beast of a car. So if you got the nicest kicks, the freshest jacket, the cleanest jeans and still have some money left over you cop this bad boy for the low price of $180,00. [Via Uncrate]
