Most people don’t think about their mailboxes much. And why should they? Mostly they’re just repositories for unwarranted credit card applications and announcements for rug cleaning services. On the other hand, whether the box is the kind that hangs next to your front door or, like mine, it’s on a post at the end of the drive, mailboxes are often the first thing that greets visitors to your home. If it’s time to reassess your postbox presentation, you might want to start with some of these offerings, which have a very Palm Beach circa 1950’s feel. (Each are made in New Zealand, but can be shipped anywhere in the world.)

The Cadrona ($149.95 NZD), pictured above, comes in 9 different colors while the Contempo, pictured below is available in 7 colors ($199.95 NZD).

And for the side-of the-door arrangement, the Sefton ($149.95) couldn’t be a better choice.
