Upscale Design is a website full of all sorts of products for the discriminating man of taste. You can find furniture, accessories, and even skin care products. The style is sophisticated and urban. Typically, the products feature clean, simple lines, and some of them are items I have not seen elsewhere before.

Case in point is the Storyline book shelf, pictured. It depicts a word translated into sound waves and made of powder coated steel that is folded into an unusual shape to display all sorts of interesting things.

GSelect stands for Gessato, and the upscale online store has a spare and well curated feel to it. There is a limited amount of items in each category, but they are all high end and carefully selected. It is like browsing through a boutique, rather than rummaging around a store that has "everything" and you end up finding nothing. Prices on the site range from $20-2000.

Gessato also has an online blog that expands upon the story behind the items, as well as featuring great design. The latest blog features Tomas Meyerhoffer and his reimagining of the longboard surfboard. It is well worth checking out for color inspiration.
