PSModern - Thanks for the tip on the [url href=http://www.1ofakindbuys.com]www.1ofakindbuys.com[/url]site w/the Brabantia mailboxes. I bought one from them along w/a stainless post and it is beautiful. High quality, very sleek. Just plain fine.

I designed and built this for my home in Phoenix. It is made of dovetailed walnut, coated with epoxy and finished with marine varnish. It has held up to the sun for 5 years

I'm a little late in responding to this post, but if you're looking for something simple and EXTREMELY affordable, check out these house numbers at Lowe's: http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetailproductId=208829-81227-BH3081D-BSNUlpage=none. They're not as nice as the ones you're eyeing, but for $4 each, they're worth it. They've held up well for 2 Chicago winters.

I want to do a flat slab front door. the house currently had a mail slot in the door and my old house had a mail slot too. I actually like them since if you go on vacation it seems like you are still getting your mail.

So what is a modernist to do? I don't see modern mail slots on front doors at all.

I have been reading this thread for a while as I have have been searching for just the right mailbox for my home. I came across this [url href=http://www.plushpod.com/ckshop.php]site[/url] which has a few good options at prices that are less than the competitors for the same mailbox. I am leaning towards the [url href=http://www.plushpod.com/item_245.php]Mailbox 1.0[/url] but they also have the [url href=http://www.plushpod.com/item_229.php]Postino[/url] for a good price. My problem is that our maibox is not under shelter and I need one large enough to hold at least two days mail without sticking out the top. I am sick of drying out soggy mail.

I've been selling unique Modern stainless steel mailboxes on eBay for some time now and thought all of you in search of a mailbox might consider checking it out.  I have 2 styles that are made completely out of stainless steel and one is wall mounted and one is free standing.  Both are locking for extra security and they are reasonably priced starting at only $87 inclusive of delivery.  Please feel free to check me out on eBay my seller ID is urbanehomehardware (all one word) which you can search for on eBay or email me direct at urbanehomehardware@yahoo.com if I can answer any questions or be of further assistance

Well, I'll start.

We finally bought a house after 6 months of crashing with my parents (the agony!) and so one of the first things I ordered for our new abode (we close on March 16) is a new mailbox. I had admired the [url href=http://www.umbra.com/cgi-bin/umbra.storefront/422db2d909929c0e273f0a00003505e2/Product/View/4603222D1]postino mailbox[/url] I saw at Umbra for a while, but when it came time to buy, I found the same thing at [url href=http://www.cb2.com]cb2[/url]. Yee haw!

My next hunt is for cool house numbers, so I'll probably go with [url href=http://www.sporeinc.com/products.html]spore[/url]. Any other good ideas?



 

I had also liked the postino wall mounted mailbox, but the pricetag seemed a bit much for a mailbox. I really wanted stainless and I really wanted modern to match the house. On a trip though Ikea I was on my way out when I spotted the ordning breadbox on a shelf in the kitchen section. The cool rounded design and stainless steel construction were exactly what I wanted. I love the curved top slides open. Also who could argue with the price? I bought black vinyl numbers at the hardware store and just need to drill two holes to mount it by the door. When I brought it home my family thought I was crazy, but after the numbers went on, they saw that it's actually quite cool. Eventually, my sweetie wants to build a stone and glass faced column to house a locking mailbox by the walkway. Until that happens, this is a good solution. Attached see a quick mockup I made in Photoshop of how it will look on a wall.
