So I know this decision is way far out, but I found myself looking for mailboxes tonight and landed on the jackpot of coolness. Our house is on a curve of a residential street so we need something that stands out a little bit. As well as the fact that the mailbox is essentially the first thing you see about the house, so why not make it cool? Here are a few mailboxes i found. You pretty much have to go to New Zealand to find the modern ones, but luckily they are cheap comparitively and they ship to US :)

Just thought you might want to see. The ones from new zealand are under 200$ surprisingly and you pick out of several colors the accent color.
